5 Practices of Values-Based Leaders

5 Practices of Values-Based Leaders | Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
For values to have meaning and impact, they need to shape your beliefs and behaviors. They are your origins. Whether at home or at work, your personal values don’t change. They are woven into your being. They shape how you make sense of the world. But be mindful of biases that trick you to believe and act in ways that lead you astray from what you stand for.

Leadership is a moral journey.

"I had the privilege of holding a Google Hangout with Holly Clark (@HollyEdTEchDiva) and Tanya Avrith(@EdTechSchools). It was a great chat, where we compared US, NZ and Canadian school systems. Afterwards I was checking out Holly’s stuff and came across her great introduction to iPads in Classrooms. I checked with Holly and she was keen I do one of my visual representations of the ideas.

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas | Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
"It just might be that in a society where information is abundant, thinking habits are more important than knowledge. Somewhere beneath wisdom and above the “things” a student knows.Laws of economics say that scarcity increases value. It’s no longer information that’s scarce, but rather meaningful response to that information. Thought.And thought has a source–a complex set of processes, background knowledge, and schema that we can, as educators think of as cognitive habits. And if they’re habits, well, that means they’re probably something we can practice at, doesn’t it?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 8, 2014 10:09 PM

We want our students to demonstrate that they know how to think, to understand that they have the ability to ask questions and find answers, answers that may not be available through Google (esp. if we are asking them to research). In short, we want them to use metacognitive skills.

But how do we teach them these skils? The image above, from teachthought, provides 15 questions that may help students create the habits that students need to learn. Below are three of the questions. Click through to the post for the entire list, as well as some great discussion.

* Is this idea important to me? To others? Why or why not?

* Is there a “part” of this new idea I can take and “pivot”? Create something new and fresh?

* What real-world models–examples–relate to this that can help me understand this further?

Consider posting these questions in your classroom and using them when appropriate with students.

Bronwyn Burke's curator insight, September 18, 2014 5:50 PM

Thinking and questioning, the more the better. Engaging with new information and building curiosity.

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others | Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
The 21st century leader must have the ability to make the most out of every situation. They are courageous and not afraid to challenge the status quo and push the boundaries to make things better. Because of these qualities and many others, the best leaders know how to get the most out of people; they enable the full potential in others.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 5, 2014 8:24 AM

(From the article): No matter how much potential an employee has, it can remain dormant if not managed rightly and properly nourished with the right ingredients. A great leader will never allow an employee’s potential to go unnoticed or to lose its momentum .Realizing potential to its fullest often requires breaking through barriers and creating new paradigms. As such, the 21st century employee must see what others don’t, do what others won’t and keep pushing when prudence says quit. Today’s leaders are not just looking for people to do their jobs better, but to recreate their jobs in their own image – discovering new standards along the way to increase productivity, sustainability and opportunities to impact the bottom line.
