One of the best articles I've read lately.  


"People have great intentions.  They just don't have vision."  Isn't this how people treat LIFE, as well?  They hop on the train and keep going.  No stopping.  No reflecting.  Lots of lemmings with empty smiles on the way to the end.  Expecting something big when in fact, the train just stops.  


What is our purpose?  As leaders, we should be the best problem solvers and finders there are.  This IS what we want our kids to be; our teachers to be.  Our schools to support.  We can't lead if we live in yesterday or hope for a better tomorrow without DOING something to make it happen.  


"The important thing is to not stop questioning", Einstein said.  When we stop questioning, we cease to grow.  Stagnation scares the heck out of me more than death does.

Lonely, Isolated Educators: Why?

Lonely, Isolated Educators: Why? | Education Leadership |
Feelings of isolation occur with some regularity among educators. Teachers spend much of their day separated from peers in classrooms that can become silos.

Teaching can be a lonely profession in terms of professional contact and disucssion. We spend much time with students and little with other teachers in a normal school day. There are a few possibilities suggested here that are worthy of consideration.

Why Apple, Academia, Tesla & VCs May Die, Disruption Guru Christensen Talks

Why Apple, Academia, Tesla & VCs May Die, Disruption Guru Christensen Talks | Education Leadership |

"Harvard business professor Clayton Christensen literally wrote the book on technology disruption...and he thinks Apple, Tesla Motors, venture capitalists and most of the nation’s colleges and universities should be afraid."


The author of The Innovator’s Dilemma said Wednesday that all of them could be killed by less advanced competitors in the same way that many once dominant technology companies have been in the past.


...He believes that and the commoditization of smartphones threaten Apple in the long run.


...“For 300 years, higher education was not disruptable because there was no technological core."


“But now online learning brings to higher education this technological core, and people who are very complacent are in deep trouble.'



...people who are very complacent are in deep trouble.



...“there is a different business model that is disrupting this in addition to online learning. It’s on-the-job education. come in for a week and we’ll teach you about strategy and you go off and develop a strategy.  

...You learn it and you use it. These are very different business models and that’s what’s killing us.”

I've posted this to BOTH Change Leader Watch & here.  On the Innovations & Institutions stream, I'll be adding examples of organizations that are adapting to this disruption in academe and the other industries mentioned.  ~  Deb

Thanks for your comments Marie. Knowledge Management is quite an industry, with various opinions of the traction it holds in business. I am most curious as to where it is headed.
