How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology

How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

"As schools try to utilize technology, they need to understand which aspects (or services) of school are likely to be better accomplished through technology. They should “outsource” or embrace technology and allow it to perform functions that were previously delegated to people, even instructors and advisors. This will allow staff and faculty, instructors and advisors to focus on higher-level tasks."

I love using memes with kids - I use them to display the classroom guidelines for behaviour and on stickers when they do well in assessments. They really understand and remember the meaning (even if sometimes I have to google some of the weirder ones!)

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others

Leadership Is About Enabling The Full Potential In Others | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it
The 21st century leader must have the ability to make the most out of every situation. They are courageous and not afraid to challenge the status quo and push the boundaries to make things better. Because of these qualities and many others, the best leaders know how to get the most out of people; they enable the full potential in others.

An employee’s success, the lens they see through, the decisions they make and how they navigate their careers are all heavily influenced by the types of leaders they are able to observe and learn from. This is why you will find that many of today’s best leaders were mentored by great leaders themselves (see examples of successful technology leaders and their mentors). Success as a leader is a by-product of the leaders and mentors we associate with throughout our careers.

niftyjock's curator insight, August 7, 6:01 PM

I find this idea very interesting, most the time students are only taking part in a forum because they are forced to by the institution. Yet, students will spend hundreds of hours playing games and watching cats on YouTube. Discussion should be engaging and rewarding to the student not something that we force them to do. How do we get students to appreciate the Intrinsic rewards of creating communities of learning?

A Self-Directed Learning Model For 21st Century Learners

Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, July 25, 6:37 PM

The above is the latest draft of our self-directed learning framework, version 1.1.

It is based, in spirit, on our Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model. It is intended to function as a guide for students–likely with the support and facilitation of teachers, parents, and mentors–to help students become expert learners.

The goal of the model isn’t content knowledge (though it should produce that), but rather something closer to wisdom–learning how to learn, understanding what’s worth understanding, and perhaps most importantly, analyzing the purpose of learning (e.g., personal and social change). It also encourages the student to examine the relationship between study and work–an authentic “need to know” with important abstractions like citizenship and legacy.
