How to Stop Vandalization of Bathroom Stalls | eHow | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Graffiti removal quickly becomes tiresome, a task never finished. The best way to prevent graffiti is to present an alternative. A blank white wall invites trouble; stop vandalization of bathroom stalls in public locations by building a decorating scheme that either makes room for public interaction or simply has enough of its own style to deter...

Medical Mysteries by Sandra G. Boodman - The Washington Post

Medical Mysteries by Sandra G. Boodman - The Washington Post | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
The Washington Post's Sandra G. Boodman is looking for challenging medical cases--ones that have been resolved but in which the patient's symptoms were puzzling to doctors or suggested an immediate diagnosis that would have been wrong.
Sharrock's insight:

These are medical, but School Leaders can learn from these stories when puzzling over student mysteries in child study meetings (Response to Intervention student studies groups) or CSE meetings. Key ideas are commitment (!), experience, expertise, dignostics, and training. But trust and perseverence also come to mind. Some skills are purely medical or clinical, but there when do we know for sure when we can't support a student within the school setting? Something to think about.

 

In some ways, better than TV because they are real. Some of the tv show episodes were apparently based on one or two of these articles. Some bring to mind what Daniel Kahneman states about expert intuition in Thinking, Fast and Slow: "Intuition is nothing more and nothing less than recognition." Daniel Sivers also noted from the book "Valid intuitions develop when experts have learned to recognize familiar elements in a new situation and to act in a manner that is appropriate to it."

What are learning skills?

The 21st century learning skills are often called the 4 C’s: critical thinking, creative thinking, communicating, and collaborating. These skills help students learn, and so they are vital to success
Sharrock's insight:

This is useful breakdown of the "4 C's". Maybe some might call this an "unpacking" of terms. It goes beyond my usual understanding of critical thinking skills. this resource might open up some valuable discussions and may lead to new understanding of the Common Core and ideas about "college and career readiness" in addition to the concept of being a "life long learner".

Peering into Learning | Peeragogy.org

Peering into Learning | Peeragogy.org | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

In this part of the Peeragogy Handbook, we “peeragogues” have summarised the most important and applicable research and insights from two years of inquiry and discussion. Although there’s been no shortage of experimentation and formal research into collaborative, connective, and shared learning systems in the past, there is a new rumbling among education thinkers that suggests that when combined with new platforms and technologies, peer-learning strategies as described here could have a huge impact on the way educational institutions evolve in the future. We’ve also seen for ourselves how peer-learning techniques can help anyone who’s interested to become a more effective informal educator.

Teaching is not producing. It is an act of praxis which involves forming. We do not produce students as finished products. They and teachers are always forming. This is much closer to Dewey and Vygotsky than it is to Plato and other Greek philosophers.

"Technology can, to some degree and in certain contexts, replace “know how” with “know where to look.”

Sharrock's insight:

 Do you really pursue diversity in your friendships and work relationships? What have you discovered when you really listed your friends and work relationships? Differences include class, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, political beliefs, nationality, intellectual, education (and even more). Do people really have "nothing" in common? When is "having nothing in common" a good thing? Stories of happy surprises are welcome.

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 8:29 PM

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.
