Por esto, los líderes latinoamericanos (específicamente políticos), no concretan proyectos ni visiones, si observamos detenidamente sus estilos y ejecutorias, realizan por lo menos, el 60% de estas actitudes desmotivadoras

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 7, 2015 2:32 PM

This is a great twist on most leadership articles.  I, too, have been guilty of most of these at various times in my career.  I think that as leaders, we are always reflecting and learning.  So, I would add:

 

Does not continue to learn and grow - does not attend staff development with teachers, does not read, is not open to others' ideas.

 

Is unavailable emotionally, intellectually, and physically - in the office with the door closed or off campus.  Meetings are closed to all but a select few.  These meeting are often just a dissemination of the leader's ideas and attendees do not disagree out of fear of reprisal.

 

These are not just demotivators - they can undermine the entire school culture.

This is a synopsis of an eloquent reply to Time magazine's cover story on bad teachers. As practitioners we know the majority of our  staff are not rotten apples. With ever more mandates and stressors out upon teachers, we leaders must work to ensure the few bad apples don't spoil the rest of them.

Why Sleeping May Be More Important Than Studying

Why Sleeping May Be More Important Than Studying | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Getting enough sleep is an under-valued but crucial part of learning. Contrary to students’ belief that staying up all night to cram for an exam will lead to higher scores, truth is, the need for a good night’s rest is even more important than finishing homework or studying for a test. A recent study in the journal Child Development showed that sacrificing sleep in order to study will actually backfire. The study followed 535 Los Angeles high school students for 14 days, tracking how long they slept, as well as how well they understood material being taught in class and how they performed on a test, quiz, or homework. 'Although the researchers expected that extra hours of studying that ate into sleep time might create problems in terms of students’ understanding of what they were taught in class, they were surprised to find that diminishing sleep in order to study was actually associated with doing more poorly on a test, quiz, or homework,' Science Daily wrote. 'Reduced sleep … accounts for the increase in academic problems that occurs after days of increased studying,' said UCLA scientist Andrew Fuligni. 'Although these nights of extra studying may seem necessary, they can come at a cost.' | by Katrina Schwartz

McStudy Spots's curator insight, October 16, 2014 11:16 PM

Maximizing study time is one thing having good study spaces is good for. It can also be good for maximizing sleep time, since less time studying can mean more time sleeping. This article examines why sleep is important to learning, based upon a two week study on 535 Los Angeles high school students. They discovered that staying up to cram often resulted in reduced test scores, whereas getting sufficient sleep led to better understanding of the material being learned. Therefore, your sleep spaces are just as important as your study spaces, so think about both of them equally critically to maximize your learning ability.

TeachThought: 4 Timeless Elements Of Strong Student-Teacher Relationships

TeachThought: 4 Timeless Elements Of Strong Student-Teacher Relationships | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"One of the most pure and deeply inspirational relationships is that of a devoted teacher and a willing student.

 

Almost everyone has a favorite teacher, and those we liked less. What causes us to still cherish these relationships and harbor powerful sentiments of respect and affection (and sometimes a shuddering dislike) for those individuals who were responsible for mentoring us? The answer is quite simple. It’s how the student teacher relationships were developed, nurtured, and given space to evolve."

20 Quotes From Children’s Books Every Adult Should Know | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
It’s interesting how some of life’s greatest lessons can be found in children’s literature. And chances are that we did not realize this back when we were kids. Sometimes it’s only when we’re older that we learn to fully appreciate and understand the poignant words from our childhood entertainment.




Here’s some of the best quotes from books we used to read.

Smart Robots Will Take Over A Third Of Jobs By 2025

Smart Robots Will Take Over A Third Of Jobs By 2025 | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"At its Symposium/ITxpo conference in Orlando, Florida, the technology research firm’s forecast pointed toward a future of not only automated physical work, but cognitive tasks as well. 'Gartner predicts one in three jobs will be converted to software, robots and smart machines by 2025,' said Gartner research director Peter Sondergaard. 'New digital businesses require less labor; machines will make sense of data faster than humans can.' In February, PBS NewsHour’s Making Sense talked to authors Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee of 'The Second Machine Age' about what was different with this new wave of technological advancement: 'We are at an inflection point. The first big inflection point in human history was about 200 years ago, when the steam engine started the industrial revolution,' Brynjolfsson said. 'That was a period that saw a whole set of new machines come along that could automate muscle power, physical work. In recent years, we are seeing a wave of technologies that can augment, automate all sorts of cognitive tasks and we think, ultimately, those will have as big, or an even bigger effect on humanity as the first industrial revolution.'” | by Joshua Barajas
