Our Educational Leaders Must Get Aggressive With Technology - The Huffington Post
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
A MUST read!!!
The most powerful thought this article provokes, is the need to empower children to feel independent and take pride in their ideas. Education is no longer about a tedious transfer of information but facilitating innovation in learning and debating differences. This will call for a radical change in the way we view our education system, especially in India. We claim to mimic the traditional Gurukul system which called for experiencing life while learning from it; but we go against every construct of experience and believe that recall of knowledge is way to suceed. The Social Media could contribute greatly in this process of debate, as long as we put in regulators to help people focus.
Why is social media important for leaders? Social media allows leaders to extend their influence.
Great article...thank you for sharing with us Susan!
With the majority of the organizations that I work with the top execs still seem to have limited online presence. It is true that are so busy keeping up with their operation, and prioritize the face-to-face as well as traditional methods.
Also, depending on the position -- they need to be careful on what they can post. What advice do you have for the top level execs who do want to influence online without having to jump through hoops with PR/Marketing/Legal to approve their posts?
