When Servant-Leaders Choose to Advantage Others – Even if it Hurts

When Servant-Leaders Choose to Advantage Others – Even if it Hurts | Instructional Strategies for ALL | Scoop.it
Putting the team first sounds great until advantaging others disadvantages you. The choice between personal advantage and organizational advantage speaks to the heart of servant leadership. “Win-win” is challenging when YOU win later and OTHERS win sooner. 3 leadership decisions that include disadvantage: #1. Developing people. The choice to develop someone is choosing short-term disadvantage…

You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them  | Instructional Strategies for ALL | Scoop.it
Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research -- and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.

Cultivate coachability with these 5 mindsets | Instructional Strategies for ALL | Scoop.it
The frustration was palpable within a group of leaders with whom I recently worked. They were in a tough spot. Competition was emerging from unexpected sources. Revenue was not tracking to meet expectations. The organization was responding with significant structural change. And these leaders had been told by executives that if the business was to survive, they had to improve their coaching ability and results.

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute | Instructional Strategies for ALL | Scoop.it

"The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development articulates the scientific consensus regarding how people learn. The research brief presents a set of consensus statements—developed and unanimously signed onto by the Commission’s Council of Distinguished Scientists—that affirm the interconnectedness of social, emotional, and academic development as central to the learning process.

"The brief draws from brain science, medicine, economics, psychology, and education research to describe why it is essential to address the social, emotional, and cognitive dimensions of learning; how these dimensions together shape students’ academic and life outcomes; and how these competencies can be taught throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. The evidence outlined in this brief moves the nation beyond the debate as to whether schools should attend to students’ social and emotional development, to how schools can integrate social, emotional, and academic development into their daily work."

Learniing is linked to healthy social and emotional opportunities children encounter to solve problems. John Dewey argued that learning is problem solving and much of it is social. I think play is essential to learning.

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching 

Taken from: The guardian (15 mayo, 2012)
 
Author: Nik Peachey 

 I found this article relevant because is near to our immediate context related to the main content of this subject, which is to implement content through the use of pedagogical and technological techniques and methodologies, this paper made an overview of the problems teachers are facing at the time of including technological methodologies in the classroom. The point of view of this article shows an opinion that is attained to specific contexts, we cannot generalize the information given here. This can help us better understand that, even though technology is a support for learning, it can have negative aspects that have to be taken into account.
Mauro Betancur Agudelo's curator insight, May 11, 10:31 AM
It is important to bear in mind different perspectives when it comes to language teaching, this post talks about the lack of usefulness that nowadays use of technology have since teachers and students are stucked in the implementacion traditional technological tools instead of taking advantage of the open world that internet offers to students, it is a hard criticism of how thing are going in current education due to its lack of authenticity.
Paula Arango Castañeda's curator insight, May 24, 8:56 AM
Even though we are in a changing world, it's important to recognize that while technology increases, education decreases. Education decreases in the sense that schools consider providing technological devices a support for learning. Knowing that it is not only about providing equipment, but also supporting and guiding students and teachers during the implementation of it.

As a sample of the previous, we can notice how teacher rather not to use this technological devices, such as computers or white intelligent boards, in order not to get embarrassed.

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees | Instructional Strategies for ALL | Scoop.it

It's that time of year--leaders everywhere are charging employees with the task of establishing goals for 2018. If you've never been through a structured process, this exercise can be daunting, and frankly, feel like a big waste of time. I can assure you, it's not. 

 

Setting goals is critical. Goals provide direction, help you focus, prioritize your time and energy, and ensure that you can objectively prove you've advanced the company's agenda.

 

But just any goal won't do. Research shows that goals are not only important but also that the level of specificity and difficulty matters. Goals that are both clear and challenging drive higher levels of performance.

 

To set their teams up for success, many organizations use SMART goals. Google leaders use something a little different--"Objectives and Key Results" (OKRs). On Google's re:Work site, a resource that shares the company's perspective on people operations, Google explains the concept.

Kim Colwell's curator insight, February 13, 8:10 PM
This is a very interesting way to set goals.  I've heard of many different ways, however, have never been introduced to this.  I like the collaborative effort, the transparency, and the simplicity.  There are different templates that can be used.  I'm still reviewing what is out there I'm leaning towards Weekdone.  I can see the framework working not only as a company goal setting plan, it can work as a family or personal goal planning system. 
 
Heidi Freeman's curator insight, February 16, 10:53 AM

This could be a goal-setting technique that may work for you! Goal setting is a daunting task, but one we really need to master. OKR, Objective and Key Results, allows you to dream big and then figure out how you will measure your progress.

Ann Zaslow-Rethaber's curator insight, February 16, 12:28 PM

In some organizations, this is the time of year when individual performance from the previous year is summarized and communicated in annual reviews. (Which, by the way, is an abysmal practice that does nothing to develop people and has at least an 80% chance of causing them to feel disengaged.)

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 20, 2017 4:06 PM
The short answer is it depends on how we define leading. Understood as emergent, distributed, and collective the answer is yes. More traditional understandings based on hierarchy and position means not as likely.

One that is missing is servant-leadership, which each person is capable of serving and leading. By its nature, teaching is leading even if we do not acknowledge teachers as leaders. Teachers are pedagogues and educate, both of which are etymologically tied to leading.
