10 Ways to Build Teacher Leaders | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

We need teacher leaders! Why? Teacher leaders are the ones that make change happen. They are the ones that understand the true problems happening in their classroom and school. They are the ones that improve learning and teaching practices with the goal of doing what is best for students which is increasing student learning and achievement. Below are ten ways I believe we can build teacher leaders based on my experience.

Chris Carter's insight:

Excellent reflections and insights.

I love how a good graphic can cram in deep amounts of information in a pleasing "digestible" way and this one is no exception. This is one worth sharing when you're talking to teachers or administrators about your role in teaching digital literacy and how important it is.

Want to Have More Creative Breakthroughs? Redesign Your Day According to This Step-by-Step Guide

Want to Have More Creative Breakthroughs? Redesign Your Day According to This Step-by-Step Guide | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

You stare at a blank screen for what seems like hours, waiting for your brain to come up with a brilliant idea, and it never comes. There has to be a better way to brainstorm, right?

 

There is--and it might be as simple as doing the laundry.

 

In the new book The Net and the Butterfly: The Art and Practice of Breakthrough Thinking, Olivia Fox Cabane and Judah Pollack--former faculty members of Stanford's Start X incubator program--explain how breakthrough insights come about. The two describe these insights as "that feeling of sudden clarity when you feel the answer staring you in the face."

 

"The biggest misconception about breakthroughs is that they're accidental or that they're spontaneous," says Fox Cabane. "But in reality that aha! moment is just the tip of the iceberg. It is the single conscious moment you have at the end of a very long, complex, unconscious process."

 

To understand how to prime the human brain for creative breakthroughs, one must first understand what parts of the brain help power them. As Fox Cabane and Pollack explain, the brain has two networks: the executive network, which is the "goal-oriented" part of your brain that you access to complete an action; and the default network, the part of your brain that's home to what the authors call the "genius lounge," or the place where creative insights lie. But, to access the genius lounge, your brain needs to tune out the executive network.

Brilliant! I thought I was being clever by turning song lyric progressions into examples of code (loops, if-else statements, etc.) but the Finns teach loops through knitting in 5th grade! That is the kind of cross curricular, synthetic thinking that is the currency of 21st Century employability.

Chris Carter's insight:
I especially appreciate #2. Society appears to hold the view that teachers should withdraw from some unlimited bank of resources, skill, and knowledge. Teachers must model effective learning throughout our careers if we are to be role-models, by definition.
1. Developing and sharing a vision centered on the learning of all students. 
2. Creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff. 
3.Promoting team learning and collaboration among all staff. 
4. Establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration. 
5. Embedding systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning. 
6. Learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system.
