Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are | Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it

As chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau, Bernie Swain posed one simple question to 100 of the eminent people that his company represents. People like Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Condoleezza Rice were asked to identify the one person, event, or influence that made them who they are as a leader and a person.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 7, 2016 3:35 PM

The overriding lessons from Bernie Swain's questioning is that successful leaders are self-aware. They have an inner voice and pay attention to it. They understand the defining moments of their lives and thereby better understand their own strengths, biases, and weaknesses as leaders.

The Teacher's Guide to Using Pinterest in Education - Daily Genius

The Teacher's Guide to Using Pinterest in Education - Daily Genius | Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it

"Five or so years ago when it launched (way back when, in technology terms), Pinterest entered a social media market dominated by text. Quite simply, it brought an unprecedented visual aspect to social media which users enjoyed, though it was a fairly basic platform. Fast forward to today and you’ll find a plethora of new features that can make it particularly useful in your classroom.

So how can making boards and pinning photos be a useful tool for teachers? Pinterest offers a number of different options for teachers both for professional development and for student work. Tons of teachers (and other folks, too) are using this tool  – there are countless boards devoted to lesson plans, classroom ideas, and more. There are purportedly around 100 million active users as of December 2015 – and as with many web-based tools, the more people there are contributing to a platform, the better stuff there will be for you to use (even if you have to sort through some garbage to find it!)   To get your wheels churning, we’ve collected a few of our favorite ideas below."

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine whether a set of instructional practices commonly prescribed to online faculty in the higher education setting were consistent with the expectations of a group of experienced online student participants. Online faculty performance conventions were collected from 20 institutions of higher learning located in the United States. The collective practices yielded three primary domains related to administrative faculty performance expectations in online instruction: Communication, Presence/Engagement, and Timeliness/Responsiveness. Undergraduate participants representing a cross section of colleges and universities in the United States were surveyed to determine their expectations for online faculty as compared to scaled items derived from the lists of participating institutions. The results of this investigation offer practitioners insight into how administrative instructional guidelines relate to the user demands of an informed group of undergraduate online students.

Mystery Skype: Where in the world are they? - ISTE | Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it
It’s time for my students to make a guess: Where is the class they are meeting for the first time via Skype?

“Is it North Carolina?”

There is silence in the classroom as my fifth graders crane their necks toward the screen.

“No!” shouts a voice from the computer speakers, and my students scramble back together. A buzz of “What could it be then?” envelops them.

This is what it sounds like when 23 students engage in what is known as Mystery Skype. The idea is incredibly simple, but how it unfolds can be downright magical. When else can you see students using all of their background knowledge, tech savvy and common sense just to figure out where someone is in the world?

Servant-leadership: the Online Way! E-learning where community building is key

Servant-leadership: the Online Way! E-learning where community building is key | Instructional Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Abstract

The digitalisation of educational communities has increased rapidly in the last decade. Modern technologies transform the way educational leaders such as teachers, tutors, deans and supervisors view and manage their educational communities. More often, educational leaders offer a variety of gateways, guiding the e-learners in their search for finding and understanding information. A new type of leader is required for understanding the needs and requirements of geographically dispersed e-learners. This calls for a compassioned kind of leader, able to reconcile the dilemma of high-tech versus hi-touch in the online classroom. This article examines servant-leadership and its implications for e-learning in the 24/7 classroom where community building is key.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 13, 2014 5:42 PM

The role of the teacher in online education is often described as the guide on the side, rather than the sage on the stage. Servant leadership concepts bring nuance and depth to the role of guide or facilitator.


In this article the authors stake out promising new ground for research. "In literature (amongst others Greenleaf, 1977 and 1991; Keith, 2011; Nuijten, 2009; Trompenaars and Voerman, 2009; Sarayrah, 2004; Vargas and Hanlon, 2007 and Spears, 2000) servant-leadership qualities can be found like listening, forgiveness, empathy, humility, care for people and the organization, healing of relationships, awareness, persuasion, courage, giving feedback, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, authenticity, commitment to the growth and empowerment of others and building community. Teachers with some or more of these servant-leadership (high-touch) qualities can make the difference in the e-learning environment. In the (high-tech) online classroom the teacher, more than ever before, needs to be qualified to amongst others listen, care for the e-learners, encourage awareness raising, give feedback and, last but not least, build a vivid learning community. This calls for a compassioned kind of educational leader, able to connect high-tech (technology mediated learning, multimedia infrastructure) opportunities with hi-touch (contact, human interaction, commitment to the growth of others, etc.) opportunities in the online classroom."


The e-learning environments envisioned in this internationally oriented paper describe many of the values driving the University of Wisconsin-Stout's E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate.

What percentage of your meetings is the word “flipped” mentioned? 

We seem to have a history of coming up with the most ridiculously bad words to describe what we are doing in higher education. MOOC, blended, hybrid, and now flipped.

 

In many of these discussions about flipped classrooms I hear the same complaints and the same concerns.  Perhaps if some of the myths around flipped classrooms could be dispelled we’d be able to have more productive conversations.

Monique Markoff says: "Some would say in this model the teachers matter less since computers are taking over some of the instruction. But I actually think teachers matter more in this model. They are now the orchestrators of these complex learning paths, picking which program should go for which student. They have to now target all the skills that the computer can’t do.  How to motivate that child. How to connect what they’re doing to their home life."

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, May 17, 2014 2:53 PM

You've heard of Blended Learning strategies by now along with all the other technology driven methods available. What this particle TED talk focuses on is building a model that encourages student led learning using technology, while the teacher serves as the motivator, and your guide for exploring the student's learning potential. The most important aspect however when trying to implement a Blended learning model,  is being flexible in its delivery and outcomes.  As there are many ways to  build your platform, just keep your students at the forefront of your decision making in order to Meet Them Where They Are.
