Truly, a great question.

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 15, 2013 11:11 PM

First, successful change leaders clearly articulate the need for change to a variety of audiences in ===> ways that are intellectually coherent and emotionally compelling. <===

 

The ability to do this requires that change leaders immerse themselves into radically different worlds.

 

          ===> AND they need to have a lot of courage as well! <===

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
Teaching kids how to curate information and discern what's trustworthy from what's bogus is a really important lesson for parents nowadays.

So it’s time to learn the art of curating the terabytes of content humans are bombarded with on a regular basis – it’s a survival skill and one that will provide an incredibly important advantage to kids in schools and the workplace of the future.

This middle-America town also boasts one other claim to fame: A so-called “traditional” LEA, namely Reynoldsburg City Schools (RCS), which is poised to be a breakout star among serious implementers of thoroughly re-engineered conceptions of learning and schooling.

For the Future Student, Higher Education Will Be Redefined

For the Future Student, Higher Education Will Be Redefined | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
Not too far in the future, students may be faced with an entirely different set of choices than they do today. No longer might college or career straight after high school graduation be the two only and divergent paths in front of them. No longer may a four-to-six-year commitment to a highly esteemed institution be the fastest way to a fruitful career or a rich network.

With online education quickly gaining momentum, the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs) is not only shaking up higher education to the core — its value, its status, its cost — the movement is also changing how young people envision their education and their future.
