What are the Best Ways a Teacher can Demonstrate Leadership in the Classroom? | Inquiry using web2 for secondary students | Scoop.it

As part of C.M Rubin’s monthly series in the Huffington post: The Global Search for Education: Our Top 12 Global Teacher Blogs, this is my third contribution. This month we are answering the following prompt: What are the best ways a teacher can demonstrate leadership in the classroom? I started to poke a little around to get a better handle on the popular notion of WHAT leadership was perceived as.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 1:14 PM

I chose this article because I believe a teacher IS a leader. So how can a teacher be an effective leader? Modeling thought processes and behaviors is certainly important. To be authentic, teachers need to orchestrate experiences that support learning. The one facet of leadership at the classroom level that I fail to see demonstrated often is sharing. We must provide opportunities for staff to share the workings within a classroom.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 2015 5:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas. 

Katie Catania's curator insight, August 5, 2015 9:10 AM

What skills do learners need today to be prepared to be a leader as they move through school and into careers? Google commissioned a study and this post provides a short video that discusses key findings as well as a link to the final report, Driving the Skills Agenda: Preparing Students for the Future.

The Executive Summary provides a number of key findings, including the ones listed below. (The text below is quoted from the report.)

* Problem solving, team working and communication are the skills that are currently most in demand in the workplace.

* Education systems are not providing enough of the skills that students and the workplace need.

* Some students are taking it into their own hands to make up for deficiencies within the education system.

* Technology is changing teaching, but education systems are keeping up with the transformation rather than leading it.

The full report provides additional information, including a number of visuals as well as case studies. As educators it is important that we consider the skills our learners will need in the future, and this report provides insight into some of what will be needed.

Excellent article by a principal talking about how important his relationship with the school's TL is. Why? Because she embraced change and became the "go-to" person in technology and very early on saw the potential of transforming the library space into a learning commons. This is how we spread the word, folks.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 2, 2015 4:19 PM

Interesting article about John Hattie's research.  Leadership matters in a school. We need to select and support our school leaders - develop their skills and talents so they can support and develop their teachers. A leader must recognize good instruction so he can cultivate practices that enhance student achievement.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 5:33 PM

Well, the title of this article grabbed my attention, particularly because I know that Hattie is well respected in the educational community. Some of the surprising insights for me include class size. I thought class sizes had a significant impact, but it appears to be detectable, but not substantial. Also, less homework is advised. "5-10 minutes of practising what was taught that day at school has the same effect as 1-2 hours does." Extracurricular involvement and getting kids to enjoy being at school is something that I need to revisit as an administrator. It seems like we continue to strip programming and it is the children who suffer from a lack of opportunity (and achievement apparently suffers also). Tests should be used to practice and reinforce what has been taught and big-ticket final exams are not useful (gasp!).

The Internet is the place where nothing goes to die.

Those embarrassing photos of your high school dance you marked “private” on Facebook? The drunk Instagram posts? The NSFW snapchats? If you use social media, you’ve probably heard a warning akin to “don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your employer (or future employer) to see.”

We agree, and are adding this caveat: Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want hanging in an art gallery."
