Are We Over-Concerned About Fairness? | #GrowthMindset #LEADERship  | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Bigger issues:

#1. Unfairness is necessary. Giving second chances, for example, isn’t fair to those who perform on schedule and within expectation. But, not giving second chances is cruel.

#2. Fairness is merciless. Mercy is not getting what you deserve. In other words, mercy isn’t fair.

#3. Equal opportunity must include reward or lack of reward. Those who seize opportunities earn reward. Those who don’t seize opportunities don’t earn reward. It’s important to note that it’s not necessary to punish those who don’t seize opportunity.

Rewarding teams always includes some unfairness.

#4. Fairness – treating everyone the same – de-motivates high achievers and rewards low performers.

#5. Fairness, when it means everyone is treated the same, promotes inaction. If you can’t be do something for everyone then you can’t do it for anyone. The result is you don’t do much.

Tijdens de vele pittige gesprekken met leerkrachten over evalueren ging het al heel vaak over gelijkheid en eerlijkheid. Op zo'n momenten brak ik al vaak een lans voor billijkheid. Dit artikel komt mij bij een volgende gelijkaardige discussie goed van pas.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

During a time of significant educational change, this article addresses the contemporary question: "What is the real role of the teacher?" Teachers continue to be central to learning and students still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, however 21st century learners also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves, meaning that students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

This is a short article on the ways that teachers' roles are changing. It is important to note that teachers are not becoming obsolete, but are just as important as ever. Teachers are here to facilitate learning and assisting the students in becoming resilient, self directed and capable learners.

How to beat your skill sets’ five-year limit

How to beat your skill sets’ five-year limit | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
In his theory of evolution, Charles Darwin famously stated: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” In today’s world of relentless change, I am tempted to paraphrase him to say: it is not the most qualified of the species that will survive, nor the most skilled. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

To keep up with the transformation, learning has escaped the gates of formal education. It is no longer restricted to teaching in a school environment. Sure, we are still pursuing degrees and certificates entrenched in 20th-century systems. But, to quote Harvard Business Review’s Mind the (Skills) Gap: “The lessons learned in school can become outdated long before student loans are paid off.” As it points out, the skills college graduates acquire during a bachelor’s degree that used to provide enough basic training to last a career, today have an expected shelf life of only five years.

In turn, studying the impact of disruptive change on existing skill sets in its recent report The Future of Jobs, the World Economic Forum discovered that: “On average, by 2020, more than a third of the desired core skill sets of most occupations will be comprised of skills that are not yet considered crucial to the job today.” Or, as lynda.com author Mark Niemann-Ross states bluntly: “In four years, you'll have to relearn 30% of your job.”

Ella Barresi's curator insight, May 27, 2017 7:17 PM
This info graphic lists many great resources that could influence ICT use in a classroom. Many of these we have explored through ICT Design, however many are new resources. This could be a great starting block for an ICT and student centered unit plan. 

EDIT:
Upon reading this article, I agreed that these skills are necessary for 21st century teachers. I have re-read this article however, and now I see that these skills are just as important for 21st century students. Imagine sending students out into the workforce after school, with all of these skills. This Infographic has provided me with the inspiration for creating a learning sequence within a unit.

Within the drama classroom there is room for most of these skills. Within my unit plan, students have to prepare a performance but in addition to that, they have to market their performance. This will require posters, a promotion video, creating a website for the performance. Working collaboratively to decide what needs to be done, students then work independently on their task (decided within the group). This will give students the opportunity to excel in skills from outside of the drama classroom. 
Jeff At CQU's curator insight, June 17, 2017 10:06 AM

This resource is excellent.  Highly organised, focused and very easy to read.  I think this would be a wonderful resource printed on a poster and displayed in the classroom.

 

Website addresses are given under nine headings that fit so well with the Australian Curriculum General Standards, the pedagogy I have chosen in my pedagogy map, and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers..

 

Examples of such links are as follows:

 

1. Category on Chart: Create infographics and posters (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Curriculum General Standards

    - Literacy - communicate concepts, ideas and detailed proposals

      LINKS TO: 

(b) High end pedagogy

   - Provide students opportunities to communicate ideas and detailed proposals through various self-selected ICT technologies

      LINKS TO: 

(c) Links to Pedagogy

   - Student direction: Students self-select methods to communicate their proposals, reports, drawings and specifications using media channels appropriate to the intended audience. To an extent directing, setting the pace and determining outcomes of learning (problem based learning).

      LINKS TO: 

(d) ICT Connections

   - Students should understand and develop the ability to utilise different presentation software – such as Prezzi and PowerPoint.

 

2. Category on Chart: Create PLNs, connect, discover new content and grow professionally (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice

 

3. Category on Chart: Create, organize adn share digital resources

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.3 Engage with colleagues and improve practice

__________________________________________________________

 

In relation to SAMR, this allows for transformation learning in the following ways:

 

1. Modification: many tasks in the classroom can be re-designed with this poster being used to locate safe and appropriate resources on the internet.

 

An example is using a a resource under "Create Digital Portfolios" such as Weebly.com in place of a portfolio in book form.

 

2. Redefinition: new tasks, previously inconceivable are possible, such as displaying a student's portfolio on a mobile device as opposed to book form.

__________________________________________________________

 

 In summary, this is brilliantly designed and I see it as a highly valuable resource for my teaching.

10 Reasons Every Teacher Needs A Professional Learning Network - TeachThought

10 Reasons Every Teacher Needs A Professional Learning Network - TeachThought | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
According to Marc-André Lalande,  “a Personal Learning Network is a way of describing the group of people that you connect with to learn their ideas, their questions, their reflections, and their references. Your PLN is not limited to online interactions, but it is that online, global interactive part that really makes it special. It is personal because you choose who’s part of that group; you choose if you want to lurk–just check out what people are saying–or if you share; because you choose when to do so, and how to do so.”

As for this graphic? You can thank Sylvia Duckworth, who always does a great job sharing simple sketch notes to help teachers. (She also took our 12 Rules of Great Teaching and created a predictably wonderful graphic to supplement the text, among others.) We’ve taken her graphic and provided starting points for each ‘reason’ a teacher need a PLN.

5 technical skills that will lead to a high-paying in-demand job

5 technical skills that will lead to a high-paying in-demand job | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Unless you're a mind-reader, one of the most difficult parts of the job search process can be figuring out exactly what employers are looking for.

To simplify that process, jobs platform Monster analyzed 943,008 job postings using CEB TalentNeuronTM's tool to figure out what "hard skills" — those that are specific, measurable and teachable — employers most want from candidates.

Many of this year's most desired hard skills can lead to high-paying jobs in the industries with the biggest job growth, like tech and healthcare.

Learning an in-demand hard skill while in college can be the easiest way to find a job, but online platforms like edX also offer free training in courses built by top universities. By building the skills set for the job you want, you can make yourself the ideal candidate no matter what your major or degree is.

Check out the list of the top 5 most in-demand hard skills:

Becoming a "Fearless Leader" (see article) is only the first step.  It's the next step that is absolutely critical -- and that is for this "Fearless Leader" to grow other leaders and their people to do the very same thing ... in order to relinquish their fears and unbridle their talents towards the greater purpose that brought you all together.

 

So the more important question is, how are you growing "Fearless Leaders" in your organization?
