11 Ideas for Fostering an Innovative Culture

11 Ideas for Fostering an Innovative Culture | innovative leadership | Scoop.it

From George Couros:

 

Working with a group of administrators in Coquitlam, BC, I talked about some of the things that we have done in Parkland School Division to push our thinking ahead in the way that we are trying to improve teaching and learning. Although the list below is not meant to be sequential, they are meant to help others focus on how they can create an innovative culture as opposed to simply having “pockets”. Although we have a lot of work to do within our own school division, we have taken some huge steps in the last few years.

 

===> What would our kids gain from us if, as educators and parents, we did a better job of showing that we too are learners? What would schools be like if the adults in the building purposefully and explicitly lived and shared the process of being a learner? What would education be like if we adults intentionally created opportunities to be co-learners with the children that we serve? <===

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, May 4, 2015 9:21 AM

Librarians, you can think of using a blended model for some of the professional development you offer.  Possibly you begin a workshop with some face to face time.  Then move online to continue your conversation through Edmodo, a blog, a Facebook page, etc.  Later, you can consider meeting again face to face to showcase the learning.

Carina Bethea's curator insight, June 7, 2015 9:00 PM

This study actually proves that digital/online learning is generally more effective than traditional learning. I can honestly say that I was a bit surprised. I am a firm believer in classroom settings as I felt as if I was "forced" to pay a lot more attention when sitting in front of the teacher, but I guess I am not the majority. 
Now the next question is "which kind" of digital learning is best: distance education, online learning or blended learning? If I had to guess, I would guess blended learning, because it combines face-to-face teaching with online learning. That leaves the students and teachers with a lot more options for communication and learning/teaching methods.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 26, 2014 1:03 PM

First, the list of "soft skills" are not skills. They are dispositions and attitudes things we acquire over time and with experiences that lead us to them.

 

Second, they will not become the norm and unless there is a process of leading and being which allows them to become the norm. Change always happens for better or worse. Imposition of new "ideas and ways of doing things" does not constitute change without an acceptance of those things as important. I witnessed few people in education who demonstrated the compassion and humility required to be leading in education.

 

Third, Finland, which has a remarkable educational track record, does put a focus on marks for teachers. I am proud of the the GPA I had in undergrad and the success in post-grad work. Marks do not make the person but I was a good teacher and lived up to the expectations of the marks as many teachers do. Who is to judge the best and worst? Those outside classrooms and who have not walked in our shoes? I hope not.
