The Learning Gap Infographic | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

The Learning Gap Infographic presents the difference between learning hours spent of middle class kids and kids born into poverty. Middle class kids have likely spent 6,000 more hours learning than kids born into poverty.

This makes me realize how important it is that all children have access to preschool, field trips and after school programs.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 2015 4:32 PM

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

Actions Speak's curator insight, August 17, 2015 10:54 AM

In a weak culture, unacceptable performance is rewarded.  The standard for what is acceptable gets lowered.

 

Our public education system is not best in class.  Education bureaucrats are getting rewarded for unacceptable performance.  Too many kids are not getting an education that prepares them to effectively compete .

 

What kind of questions would you ask if you were a top education leader in your state, county, or city?

 

How about some of these?

 

1) when are going to stop passing kids that can't do the work at the current level?

2) how are we going to close learning gaps with a sense of time is of the essence?

3) what needs to change in our approaches to teaching to drastically improve learning results?

4) if what we are supposed to achieve is kids learning at a high level then what about all the resources allocated to transportation, duplicate administrators, government edicts, athletics, ...?

5) what do other cultures with high performance education systems do differently?

6) do you ask the teachers what they need to close gaps and energize the kids to learn at a much higher level?

7) do you have the courage to think out of the box and go against the politically correct that rewards blind compliance to government ideology?

 

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn" -- Ignacio Estrada 

 

Isn't it time to rethink our approach?

 

Yes.  It is way past time!

The Future Of Learning? Well, It's Personal : NPR | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
“If you do a Google image search for "classroom," you'll mostly see one familiar scene: rows or groups of desks, with a spot at the front of the room for the teacher. One teacher, many students: It's basically the definition of school as we know it, going back to the earliest days of the Republic. "We couldn't afford to have an individual teacher for every student, so we developed a way of teaching large groups," as John Pane, an education researcher at the RAND Corporation, puts it. Pane is among a wave of education watchers getting excited by the idea that technology may finally offer a solution to the historic constraints of one-to-many teaching. It's called personalized learning: What if each student had something like a private tutor, and more power over what and how they learned?”

Changing How Educators See Negative Experiences in the Classroom | MindShift | KQED News

Changing How Educators See Negative Experiences in the Classroom | MindShift | KQED News | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
An easy first step is to recognize and mindfully attend to positive emotional experiences in your classroom and at home. Evolution selected for a negative attribution bias that makes us tend to dwell on the negative and ignore the positive. During a typical day, 10 great things may have happened and one horrible thing. When we get home and our partner asks us how our day went, typically we focus on the one horrible thing, forgetting about the 10 great things.

From a Stone Age perspective the negativity bias was important for our survival: The ancient human walking down a path who saw something that looked like a snake would be more likely to survive if he jumped back quickly, assuming the worst. If another kept walking, curious as to whether or not it actually was a snake, he might get bitten and die, taking himself out of the gene pool. Because natural selection favored hypervigilance, we need to make a concerted effort to notice and focus on the positive—and even savor it.

The School in the Cloud platform was originally launched at the 2014 TED conference to help accelerate this research by helping educators — be they teachers, parents or community leaders — to run their own SOLEs and to contribute to the global experiment by sharing their experiences with others.

 

'In December 2013, the first School in the Cloud lab — located inside a high school in Killingworth, England — opened its doors to students. Seven more labs have since been opened as part of his wish; five in India, one more in the UK and in New York, USA. The labs aim to provide an environment where a global community of educators can observe the impact of self-organized learning on children from a wide range of educational backgrounds.

Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees

Low-Income Students: More Going to College, But Few Earning Degrees | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
A troubling good news/bad news pattern has developed among our low-income students: They're going to college in greater numbers than ever, but only a small fraction are leaving with degrees. 

A report released Thursday offers the latest opportunity to see the pattern in multicolored charts and graphs. They paint a portrait of two generations of low-income students who have raised their college sights only to stumble before securing the payoffs of a degree. Educators and activists worry that the pattern could limit their potential earnings and social mobility.

"When I look at these statistics, I think maybe we are profoundly and unequally fostering disincentives to higher education participation, especially among low-income students," Margaret Cahalan, the director of the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, said during a call with reporters last week.

The data in the report by the Pell Institute and the University of Pennsylvania Alliance for Higher Education and Democracy, known as PennAHEAD, aren't new. Other researchers, including the University of Michigan's Susan Dynarski, have pointed out that the bachelor's degree completion rates for low-income students lag far behind their college-enrollment rates.  A demographic study, highlighted by the New York Times, showed that for poor students, four-year-degree completion for children born in the 1970s and 1980s barely budged, while it soared for children from the most affluent families. 

Like other studies, the Pell report illustrates the many ways that money serves as a key barrier to college completion for low-income students. It details the rising cost of college, and the shift of a larger chunk of college costs onto families.

He was committing the cardinal sin while leading his people by selling his employees short.


An all too common issue with leadership in the workplace is people in these roles not giving their reports a fighting chance. Not only do people want to be led, but they deserve a leader who is willing to give up control and responsibility to help them to become the best version of themselves.  


Stop selling your employees short and allow your people to flourish by enacting these ideas:

The Teen Brain: How Schools Can Help Students Manage Emotions and Make Better Decisions

The Teen Brain: How Schools Can Help Students Manage Emotions and Make Better Decisions | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
In symposia at International Mind, Brain, and Education Society research conference here last week, and a consensus report funded by the Alliance for Excellent Education released here, cognitive and neuroscientists called for educators to foster school cultures that better support adolescent development.
"For some reason, when we talk about brain development in adolescents, we talk about it like we're terrified: 'Oh my god, their grades in school are dropping, they're driving cars, this is so alarming,' " said Sarah Enos Watamura, an associate professor at the University of Denver who studies the effects of stress on learning and spoke at the conference. "But they're testing their limits, they're doing things for the first time. … That's hard work, and they need a safe space to try out risks."
Adolescence, she said, is coming to be understood as a "second critical window" for developing skills to regulate emotions, making and evaluating decisions, and judging risk and reward. After years of childhood brain development, teenagers' brains focus on making strong connections.
"We need adolescents to hang out in this sensitive period and all that allows to develop … versus rushing them through it," Watamura said.

Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can

Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Bill George, a professor of leadership at Harvard Business School, and former CEO of Medtronic, says that self-awareness is the starting point of leadership. Self-awareness is the skill of being aware of our thoughts, emotions, and values from moment to moment. Through self-awareness, we can lead ourselves with authenticity and integrity — and in turn better lead others and our organizations.

We conducted a survey of more than 1,000 leaders in more than 800 companies in over 100 countries, and found that leaders at the highest levels tend to have better self-awareness than leaders lower in the hierarchy. This could be because stronger self-awareness accelerates the promotion process, or because, like Vince, we’re nudged toward enhancing our self-awareness as our leadership responsibility increases.

Fortunately for all of us, self-awareness can be enhanced. Simple steps can be taken to complement one’s traditional leadership skills with it.

How self-aware are you? It's not too hard to find out, and it's so important!

Tom Wojick's curator insight, April 26, 9:13 AM

“My ego had run amok. I was leading from my head and not from my heart.” This is not uncommon; it happens not only in leadership, it happens in relationships. We don't teach self-awareness in school; we have to seek it. Yet it is critical to success not just in business, but in life. This article offers some helpful tips, however I recommend exploring and developing one's emotional intelligence. I recommend 6 Second's model of EQ: Know Yourself, Choose Yourself and Give  Yourself. It will help you not only become more self-aware, it will help you put that awareness into productive and useful action.

32 Tips For Building Better Relationships With Students - TeachThought

32 Tips For Building Better Relationships With Students - TeachThought | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Building relationships with students isn’t always simple, but it’s crucial to the well-being and academic growth of all students.

Part of the reason it’s not, in fact, ’simple’ is because every student is different and there are few universal rules for engaging students. In the same way connecting with colleagues and people in your personal life can be complicated because of different contexts, interests, personalities, and communication patterns, connecting and building relationships with students in the classroom can be equally challenging.

And a distinction should be made here between building a ‘working relationship’ and authentic relationship with students. Because of your position of authority in the classroom, a ‘working relationship’ with a students is a matter of ‘classroom management’ in pursuit of ‘student engagement.’ This approach can be efficient, but the clinical tone leaves a lot on the table for the growth of students.

If you are able to authenticate that ‘working relationship’ with genuine interest and personalization, more human and affectionate terms for that relationship can grow, resulting in the often-elusive ‘student engagement’ while also making your job—and life—easier, and your classroom a more enjoyable place for everyone to be.

How To Train Yourself To Take Feedback Well | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it


And while goals and growth plans are great, sometimes the best ideas for change come from an awareness outside of ourselves. I know, it sounds weird to hear a leadership coach telling you to look for something outside of yourself. I’m all about tuning into that courageous and all-knowing voice who can tout your fabulousness–it’s good stuff. But let’s get real: Sometimes the only way to get perspective about what needs to change comes from an outside perspective. Yes, believe it or not, there is often a gap between who we desire and think we are presenting to the world, and the way others see us.
