Promoting a Culture of Learning

Promoting a Culture of Learning | school improvement process | Scoop.it
Learning is a culture.

It starts as a culture with the students as human beings needing to understand their environment. And it ends as a culture with students taking what we give them and using it

Via Gust MEES
The Rice Process's insight:

I agree. Creating a culture of learning requires intentional planning, shared practices and reflection. A culture embodies our beliefs and practices.

Create the culture of learning by giving room for students to apply what they have learnt without the fear of failing. Even when they do fail, instill in them the motivation to rise up once again.

Being Happy at Work Matters

Being Happy at Work Matters | school improvement process | Scoop.it

People used to believe that you didn’t have to be happy at work to succeed. And you didn’t need to like the people you work with, or even share their values. “Work is not personal,” the thinking went. This is bunk.  My research with dozens of companies and hundreds of people — as well as the research conducted by the likes of neuroscientists Richard Davidson and V.S. Ramachandran and scholars such as Shawn Achor — increasingly points to a simple fact: Happy people are better workers. Those who are engaged with their jobs and colleagues work harder — and smarter.

What Happens in Great Schools

What Happens in Great Schools | school improvement process | Scoop.it

After 40+ years of reporting about education, I am absolutely convinced that, in the very best schools, the students are the workers and the work they are doing is meaningful. What they do–their product–depends upon their ages and stages, but the concept doesn’t change. In these schools, teachers are conductors, directors, supervisors, guides or docents. This observation flies in the face of conventional wisdom, which holds that teachers are workers whose job is to produce capable students. That gets further bastardized when ‘capable’ is defined by test scores until we end up thinking, “The work of teachers is to add value, which is measured by higher te

Leadership and Conflict: Deal With It Now or Pay For It Later

Leadership and Conflict: Deal With It Now or Pay For It Later | school improvement process | Scoop.it

It’s funny how some people are labeled or referred to as conflict – when in reality no one (in their right mind) would say they are conflict chasers. So now that I’ve merely reinforced what you already knew about conflict (that it stinks); why in the world am I writing about the importance of dealing with it? My answer is simple; dealing with conflict is a mandatory part of leadership.

Attributes Of Awesomely Great Leaders | school improvement process | Scoop.it

There are many attributes that leaders from all facets possess. A number of these attributes are positive and unfortunately some not so positive. Organizations, teams and people in general are always searching for desirable attributes in leaders they want to work for. Not only leaders they want to work for, but leaders who inspire them to work harder and faster all while developing their personal leadership.

Creating a culture of collaboration, not competition

Creating a culture of collaboration, not competition | school improvement process | Scoop.it

As I read education blogs, news editorials and Twitter, I sometimes am struck by the “us vs. them” mentality I see between veteran and newer teachers. The purpose of this article is not to demonize or laud either one of these groups, but rather to promote the idea that teachers should support one another. We all got into this profession for the same reason, and I suspect we will find that we are more alike than we realize. What’s more, both veteran — those in the profession for 10 years or more — and newer — those with five or fewer years of experience — teachers have valuable, unique skills and perspectives and could learn from each other. In the end, we all want to do the right thing for our students.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 14, 6:48 PM

Do you know that your brain may sabotage you? This posts looks at sixteen ways the brain may set "traps" that lead us astray. Additional resources are also listed in many of these "traps."

* Equating Knowing With Learning. It takes time for us to really "learn" something, which means we need to review this new information so we can move it from short-term storage to long-term storage.

* Being Biased Towards Ourselves. If you bomb a test or assignment do you tend to base blame on others? This is one example of being biased toward ourselves. We blame the book, teacher...the list could go on.

* Making Us Think We Can Multi-task. What happens when you multi-task? Your brain is quickly switching back and forth between multiple task your brain becomes overloaded and cannot perform at full capacity.

Framing a Message about “Building Capacity”

Framing a Message about “Building Capacity” | school improvement process | Scoop.it

Let’s imagine you’re in a school where authentic assessment prevails, inquiry drives the professional learning process, and time for collaboration has been built into the day. That’s really exciting, but it may be hard to explain WHY it’s exciting to someone who’s not an educator.   And for most of us, who don’t teach in schools like the one just described, we need to be able to effectively communicate to people outside our classrooms exactly why school conditions like this – conditions that build the capacity of educators and a system to grow and change --  are so important!

(What) Do Americans really think about education?

(What) Do Americans really think about education? | school improvement process | Scoop.it

A number of polls from major news organizations, education groups, and universities have been commissioned over the past several months, and education pundits and advocates on all sides of current reform debates have endlessly parsed the results.  Unfortunately these pundits are mostly misguided, and public opinion polls on education don’t mean what people think they mean. What follows are three conclusions, all based on data from these various polls, and a discussion of they ought to mean for education policy and advocacy going forward.

7 Traits That Make A Leader

7 Traits That Make A Leader | school improvement process | Scoop.it

Successful leadership, like happiness, is one of those things that everyone claims to have the "secret" to. There are more than 27,000 leadership books on Amazon, thousands of seminars on leadership skills held in conference rooms across the country, and countless articles in business magazines and websites pruning leadership lessons from CEOs and corporate movers and shakers. 

But leadership isn't just about sitting at the top of the corporate ladder and running the show -- it's a way of engaging with your social network, community, colleagues and employees to share a vision and unite people in pursuit of a common goal. Good leadership brings out the best individual qualities of everyone participating.

after any episode causing grief- like voluntary/forced separation from a team/ company etc; its necessary to  re-bond, reconnect, heal, forgive, come to terms with and move on:-)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 9, 2:01 PM

Being ready to move on is essential. When I left teaching, it was the right time. I was able to let go. I miss the classroom, but not the micro-managing, the lack of integrity, the adult politics, etc. that went on. There was little choice in my professional development. School is a fiefdom operating under the dictates of those furthest removed from classrooms. That I was happy to shed myself of and was ready to do so without bitterness or rancour. Sadness was there, because I know children need something different than what is happening.

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds

What Is Education? Insights From The World's Greatest Minds | school improvement process | Scoop.it

"As we seek to refine and reform today’s system of education, we would do well to ask, 'What is education?' Our answers may provide insights that get to the heart of what matters for 21st century children and adults alike. It is important to step back from divisive debates on grades, standardized testing, and teacher evaluation—and really look at the meaning of education. So I decided to do just that—to research the answer to this straightforward, yet complex question. Looking for wisdom from some of the greatest philosophers, poets, educators, historians, theologians, politicians, and world leaders, I found answers that should not only exist in our history books, but also remain at the core of current education dialogue. In my work as a developmental psychologist, I constantly struggle to balance the goals of formal education with the goals of raising healthy, happy children who grow to become contributing members of families and society. Along with academic skills, the educational journey from kindergarten through college is a time when young people develop many interconnected abilities." | by Marilyn Price-Mitchell
