Small-Sized Nature Retreat Overlooking the Ocean: Moonlight Cabin in Australia

Small-Sized Nature Retreat Overlooking the Ocean: Moonlight Cabin in Australia | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Overlooking the ocean in Victoria, Australia, the Moonlight Cabin by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects is said to engage with the landscape’s ephemeral conditions. Modest in size, the residence answers the living needs of the owners, while making use of sustainable features: “The built form is fully screened in a spotted-gum rain screen that acts like a ‘goretex jacket’ to protect the cabin from the elements while the timber is free to move naturally in the changing climatic conditions. Its small footprint shelter (60m2) explores the boundaries of how small is too small, challenging conventional notions of what is actually necessary in our lives”, the architects explained.

Sir Ken Robinson questions what the roles of educational institutions are today. Not related to cloud technologies but brings up good points about education.

Kelsey Anderson's curator insight, November 5, 2013 8:06 PM

I could listen to this podcast over and over again. Sir Ken Robinson is a witty and charming British man who’s unique insight about education is unarguable. The segment is about the lack of creativity in today’s education system and the disservice this void creates for our students. Robinson defines creativity as a “fundamental set of capacities that distinguish us human beings” and as the “process of original ideas that have value.” In the pod cast, Robinson argues that our school system inherently stifles creativity and promotes conformity. He believes our school system should be de”industrialized” and more “personalized.” This “revolutionary” personalization of our education system would view the arts as of equal importance to literacy. This pod cast episode is something every educator should listen to and consider. I have always believed in creativity in the classroom, but hearing Sir Ken Robinson’s opinions confirmed and furthered my passion about encouraging student to be creative in a variety of subjects.

How To Be A Success At Everything

How To Be A Success At Everything | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Over my 35 years of providing speaking coaching to business executives, I’ve taught an extremely simple process for dealing with challenging questions that I call the ABC approach. What’s great about my approach is that it helps you manage the pausing, panicking, and jumbled thoughts you experience in the face of a tough question. By implementing ABC, you will be able to deliver a strong, coherent answer with ease and impact.

So, how exactly does it work?

1. Align

Alignment has two parts: First, you have to recognize what the questioner has said, and then you have to explain why you feel her perspective has merit. Begin with “I understand…” and briefly repeat her concern, letting her know you are hearing her.

Gust MEES's curator insight, July 2, 2013 9:57 PM


Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.


But how can children, still learning themselves, teach others? One answer: They can tutor younger kids. The benefits of this practice were indicated by a pair of articles published in 2007 in the journals Science and Intelligence.


The studies concluded that first-born children are more intelligent than their later-born brothers and sisters and suggested


===> that their higher IQs result from the time they spend showing their younger siblings the ropes. <===

Management Intuition For The Next 50 Years | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Intuition forms over time. When McKinsey began publishing the Quarterly, in 1964, a new management environment was just beginning to take shape. On April 7 of that year, IBM announced the System/360 mainframe, a product with breakthrough flexibility and capability. Then on October 10, the opening ceremonies of the Tokyo Olympic Games, the first in history to be telecast via satellite around the planet, underscored Japan’s growing economic strength. Finally, on December 31, the last new member of the baby-boom generation was born.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

25 Things Skilled Learners Do Differently

25 Things Skilled Learners Do Differently | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Imagine for a moment that all human beings had the same IQ, but that some of us knew how to tap into it better than others. How would we approach education differently?

For starters, we wouldn’t have to concern ourselves nearly as much with boosting students’ academic confidence. If a student knows she has the same capacity to succeed as her fellow learners, then she’ll be less likely to give up or drop out. In a similar vein, students would view test scores not as measures of self worth, but as evaluations of a chosen learning strategy. When Johnny sees that, despite his best efforts, he scored twenty points lower on the biology exam than Sally, he thinks, “I’m approaching this the wrong way” rather than, “She’s smarter than me.” And he then goes on to improve his memorization technique or ask more questions during the next unit.

Why You Should Stop Doing Traditional Interviews

When Atlanta, Georgia, based ShelfGenie began franchising in 2008, the custom slide-out shelving company expanded rapidly, landing in 2010 on the Inc. 500 list for being one of the fastest-growing privately held U.S. companies and the third fastest growing franchise. Today the company hits more than $20 million in sales with about 150 locations in the U.S. and Canada. But, as so often happens with companies that see meteoric growth, ShelfGenie plateaued. While the company was still growing at about 6 percent a year and a half ago, that number wasn't good enough for CEO Allan Young, who looked around at his company which was full of good people who were heroes a few years ago, but now struggling to execute. His goal: To clean house and fill his company with A-Players who wanted to be held accountable for superior results. Here are some of the unusual--even unorthodox--ways he did it with the help of Rick Crossland, a consultant who helps his clients use "Topgrading" techniques to hire talent.

A computing revolution in schools | Coding | Europe | UK | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

This is the week when a revolution begins to sweep through schools in England. It involves a whole new way of teaching children about computing - but I suspect many parents, and even some teachers, know very little about this important moment in education.

 

As children from five upwards return to school, they are going to have to start learning how to program - or to "code" to use the trendy term which seems to upset some old-school programmers. This is the result of the new national curriculum for computing that is being introduced in England this term.

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.


Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.
