3 Things That Guarantee Engaged Employees - Forbes

3 Things That Guarantee Engaged Employees - Forbes | Gifted Education | Scoop.it

Want a team that says “Thank God It’s Monday”? Here’s how…

One of the most important and core elements a company of people can be aligned on is their mission, vision and values about the company. These components are essential and powerful drivers for the exec team to efficiently achieve the success they want. They are also the key to having a highly engaged culture of team members who say ‘Thank God It’s Monday!’

 

Many companies don’t really think this is important to have these or have them nailed down. But that’s primarily because of one major flaw in the use of these terms. That one flaw is the integrity that runs behind the concepts of the Mission, Vision and Values Statements.

 

Often there is a lot of misunderstanding about these words, mission, vision and values. And there are a lot of definitions out there.

Three Brain Teasers to Spur Logical Thinking and Collaboration - Mindshift | Gifted Education | Scoop.it
There are lots of ways to stretch student thinking and get them talking to each other about ideas. One fun way is through riddles that require inductive reasoning, critical thinking and hopefully some good collaboration around student ideas. The three brain teasers below created by TED-Ed have fun visuals and include an explanation at the end. All the videos also include lesson plan ideas to deepen the conversation and start discussion.

The Most Important Skill you can Ever Learn! Huffington Post

The Most Important Skill you can Ever Learn! Huffington Post | Gifted Education | Scoop.it
The single most important skill you will ever learn is in itself an oxymoron. It is dependent on your ability to vanquish procrastination and achieve something today with view to tackling the unknown that comes tomorrow. As I've written previously it requires the drive to tackle the modern world head on: doing nothing has never been so easy. Got a spare few hours? They can disappear as quickly as unlocking your smart phone. For me then this affords opportunity for those who have taught themselves the skill I allude to; to learn how to learn and have the desire to maniacally do so for the rest of your life. The ability to employ autodidacticism in your every day life is the single most valuable skill you can ever acquire and employ. Self-directed learning enables you to learn the skills that you are most passionate about and employ them in innovative way to achieve your goals and ambitions. We no longer need schools, universities or teachers to spoon feed us the information you are paying to acquire. Go out and try finding what interests you and expand your horizons through learning. Schools are broken, they teach you memory skills required to pass exams at the detriment of teaching you what it means to learn.

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report | Gifted Education | Scoop.it
Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck has become something of a cult figure in education and parenting circles. Her research into boosting student motivation has spawned a mini industry of consultants, sold more than a million books and changed the way that many adults praise children. Dweck believes too many students are hobbled by the belief that intelligence …

 

Praising effort alone 

Many parents and teachers have interpreted Dweck’s work to mean that they should praise a child’s effort, such as “I’m proud that you tried really hard,” or “I see how much effort you put into this.” Or teachers sometimes give A’s on assignments if a child has attempted all of the questions, regardless of whether the answers are good or not.

“It’s like the consolation prize. ‘Oh, at least you worked hard,'” said Dweck. “What if they didn’t make progress or they didn’t learn?”

Praising effort alone, she says, is useless when the child is getting everything wrong and not making progress. Either students will feel misled when they are eventually confronted with the reality of their low achievement, or the hollow praise will convey adults’ low expectations for them.

It's important that praise be aligned with relevant and useful feedback. All learners need to know what they are doing right, and what they are getting wrong, in order to progress.

Dixie Binford's curator insight, November 30, 2015 10:16 AM

Implementation with fidelity is important when new strategies from research comes to the classroom.  We often "cherry-pick" what we feel comfortable with but it is necessary to "lean in" and implement as intended by the author or researcher.  Be committed to self-reflection and evaluation of the progress you see in students.  Adjust, refine and commit to improving your execution.

The Ball that Teaches Kids to Code - The New Yorker

The Ball that Teaches Kids to Code - The New Yorker | Gifted Education | Scoop.it


"At Trail Ridge Middle School, which is forty minutes north of Denver, in Longmont, the old Colorado is giving way to the new. A stuffed grizzly that once stood at the entrance has been banished to a dusky back hallway, and many of the students are the children of tech workers. On a recent weekday morning, Anna Mills, a sixth-grade science teacher, shouted from the front of the classroom, “Grab your iPads and your Spheros!” When her command didn’t work, she clapped twice, and this code was successful: her two dozen students clapped back, roughly in unison, and began getting up from their desks. Mills had divided her class into groups of three, and the leaders of each trio hurried over to a counter where ten Spheros—milky white orbs about the size of navel oranges—sat in blue charging cradles. The leaders grabbed their Spheros and hurried with the other students to the school’s former library, now known as the Digital Commons."

Why Leaders Who Listen Achieve Breakthroughs

Why Leaders Who Listen Achieve Breakthroughs | Gifted Education | Scoop.it

As a leader, communicating can sometimes feel like Groundhog Day. No matter how hard you try to get your message across, it is all too easy to find the next day that you face the same blank stares, predictable objections, and questions that indicate that you failed to make it stick — that people just aren’t getting it. One reason leaders find themselves in this cycle is that their approach to communication is based on an outdated mental model. It’s a model best described as a “post office.” They view themselves as the sender of a message and others as the receivers. If problems arise, leaders look for disruption somewhere along the route.

The post office model focuses most leaders’ attention on the sending process, rather than the give-and-take of effective conversations. Even if they invite people to ask questions and truly value their buy-in, these leaders are still preoccupied with their message. This leaves them ignorant about the larger context and reality on the ground, including emerging issues and game-changing opportunities. In the extreme, thinking in terms of the post office model causes leaders to make decisions in isolation or miss the early warning signs of dysfunctional momentum.

Dion Acha's curator insight, March 26, 2016 10:14 PM
The title itself caught my attention and was very interested in the content of the article. As a student, I can relate when a teacher lectures about an event and us students believe we know every fact of it and never question the mysterious side. The article gave a few steps into raising curiosity and what stood out instantly was when the author mentioned "provide assignments that students will fail." I found it very ironic how educators would give assignments that students would fail when they should help them succeed. This article provided a whole new perspective of educating students; helping them find the answers to their questions rather than handing it out easily. If educators adapted this style, i strongly believe it would challenge students' brains into figuring out different solutions.

Leaders who demonstrate an ability to look on the brighter side of things, and who show resilience after a failure are able to keep their teams upbeat and motivated as well. When a good leader does have something to complain about, they don’t vent to their team members.
