12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate

12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

By and large, tolerance is a good trait. The differences we encounter enrich our lives and organizations. But to attain a successful life and meaningful leadership, we must refuse to tolerate the things that deplete, and ultimately destroy, us.

Start by declaring these things intolerable in yourself and those around you - and see what changes as a result.

Tolerance is a virtue--most of the time. But some things should never be tolerated. To build a successful career and life as a leader, make sure these are never on your list

5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING

5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
An AMA (Ask Me Anything) is a two way conversation first conceived on the social networking and news website Reddit. Essentially an AMA is an opportunity for people of interest to host their own Q&A session where users are encouraged to ‘ask them anything’. Questions can range from deadly serious to utterly ridiculous, and are voted up or down by users so that the most popular questions are answered first. More than just a fad on Reddit, there are a heap of ways you can run your own version of an AMA with interesting guests in your own classroom.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.
