excerpt: "A 2012 global work force study of 32,000 employees by the consulting company Towers Watson found that the traditional definition of engagement — the willingness of employees to voluntarily expend extra effort — is no longer sufficient to fuel the highest levels of performance. Willing, it turns out, does not guarantee able. Companies in the Towers Watson study with high engagement scores measured in the traditional way had an operating margin of 14 percent. By contrast, companies with the highest number of “sustainably engaged” employees had an operating margin of 27 percent, nearly three times those with the lowest traditional engagement scores."

Not only do we hate work, we hate the commute to and from our work. I told colleagues I would teach for 1/2 the price. That was the wrong thing to say to other teachers. Apparently, even limited altruism is not welcome. When we work for money, it is inevitable that we will become unhappy. When we work for the love of what we do, we find ways to overcome the obstacles.

Is it JUST a tool? No.

from the article: "The skills I’m talking about are skills of organization, of building research systems, and meta-cognition. Skills that go beyond the tools and deep into the learning process."

Some relevance for teeenage students

Audrey's curator insight, December 5, 2013 3:24 PM

Thanks for this Beth.  I will add this to my tutorials for students.  It is very helpful, Audrey.  Also have a look at www.hotmoodle.com.

David Baker's curator insight, December 8, 2013 1:01 AM

I plan to share this at the School Accountability meeting I am chairing next week.  We have a standing agenda item - the middle school student.  This is a great resource and in a great format to start conversations at school and home.

The federal Investing in Innovation, or i3, initiative bet heavily on the Success for All program, and an early evaluation suggests the investment is paying off.
