The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too

The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

 

What is it that sets people with grit apart? Robertson-Craft and Duckworth describe their key characteristic this way: “Gritty individuals work  diligently towards very challenging, long-term goals, sustaining commitment when confronted with setbacks and adversity.”

 

That sounds like a quality that would be immensely useful in teaching—and many other professions.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 12, 2014 12:26 AM

Without resiliency, without grit, we cannot recover and move forward learning from mistakes. Teachers need grit. The very work we do calls on us to be resilient and lead students with our words and actions when we make a mistake.

Making Open Government Data Sustainable

Making Open Government Data Sustainable | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

Earlier this week, David Eaves kicked off a fascinating conversation with a post on TechPresident. Titled "Optimism, Fear and the Knight News Challenge," it raises important questions about how open government work is supported and sustained. In particular, David focused on Democracy Map, one of two KNC finalist projects from friend-of-Sunlight Phil Ashlock. Democracy Map aims to improve U.S. citizens' ability to determine who represents them at all levels of government. David argues that a subsidy from Knight to DM could threaten the business of companies like Cicero that are trying to solve the problem through a commercial offering. Once the Knight money dries up, will Democracy Map still be around? Or will it only last long enough to kill off Cicero?

Sunlight's Eric Mill responded with a comment, prompting a fascinating response from Cicero's Robert Cheetham. And yesterday Phil weighed in with a lengthy and compelling post that's well worth a read.

Remember Data.gov? The President does, and he has issued an executive order that should give the information portal a shot in the arm.

Open the information is the popular topic, but the most important point is not closing the information access through the portal itself!! The main advantage is promoting the interoperability to make it machine readable and improving the access to the information.

Obama’s Top 50 Accomplishments

Obama’s Top 50 Accomplishments | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

This list illustrates the importance of marketing and communication. I would like to compare this list of accomplishments to a similar list produced by a more conservative-leaning journal to explore different valuing of each accomplishment. It is also a complex example of the importance of perspective in that some accomplishments may be perceived differently. Leaders work hard to accomplish goals some stakeholders won't value. Sometimes, this lack of value results from a weakness in the leader's skills at getting the message out; sometimes, it is a weakness in the stakeholders that the leader did not recognize and accommodate; sometimes, it is an issue of culture; sometimes, there are those who simply don't care or want to know. (Also check out the main article, The Incomplete Greatness of Barack Obama, and the issue’s Editor’s Note.) 1.
