The author points out very rightly that, "Blended learning is an evolving, dynamic organism that cannot be forced into a custom template, and that Good blending comes from establishing equilibrium between the learner and the learning objective".

I learn as I experience. "Our learning occurs in a rich environment of diverse experiences – email, conversations, communities, workshops, tutorials, seminars, etc". As I prepare to deliver lessons, as a lecturer, I closely engage with the contents of lesson.  Why don't make students do the same.  Make them closely engage with lessons in a rich environment of diverse experiences – peer instruction, group presentations, dialogues, debates, etc

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | School | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems.


ChristopherBell's curator insight, June 12, 2014 8:24 PM

Interesting that Pearson feels compelled to 'Rank the world's educational systems' when they are supplying so much of the world's schools with curriculum - ironic?
