Hierarchy of Needs for Innovation & Divergent Thinking Series: Effective Leadership

Hierarchy of Needs for Innovation & Divergent Thinking Series: Effective Leadership | Learning in a changing world | Scoop.it
This post is the third in the #HierarchySeries. You can find the first post here. The area of effective leadership encompasses everyone that influences the people around them. I do not hold the area of leadership for only administration. I'm a firm believer that teacher leaders have so much more influence than they ever give…
junewall's insight:
A good start for a discussion on developing a culture of innovation. I think there are some elements either missing or shouldn't perhaps be so hierarchical - what do you think?

The Future of Education: Transcending the Status Quo | edCircuit | Learning in a changing world | Scoop.it
Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies has done little to change the “tell and practice” approach to teaching and learning — the predominant pedagogical practice of our time. In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what knowledge is worth knowing; students meanwhile invest their vast capacity for creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration by memorizing and practicing what they were told. The overarching goal of this model is simply for students to accurately repeat the information they were told.

As we increasingly move towards designing our own eLearning content - it is essential to consider the delivery of that content - the tools are a means to an end - if the design quality is poor then the usefulness of those tools is greatly diminished.

EducationHQ - High Possibility Classrooms: a new model for technology integration in schools

EducationHQ - High Possibility Classrooms: a new model for technology integration in schools | Learning in a changing world | Scoop.it

The data found that four teachers focused their knowledge of technology integration in five ways: theory, creativity, making their students learning public, life preparation, and accommodating the particular contexts in which they taught. These classrooms were highly engaging learning spaces where students didn’t want to leave when the bell rang.

Interesting perspective of new research which utilises, amongst others, the TPACK model.

How and Why I Research Exemplars of Technology Integration | Learning in a changing world | Scoop.it
For over 30 years, I have examined the adoption and use of computers in schools (Teachers and Machines, 1986; Oversold and Underused, 2001, Inside the Black Box, 2013). I looked at the policy hype, over-promising, and predictions accompanying new technologies in each decade. The question I asked was: what happens in schools and classrooms after…

Read this from an objective viewpoint and not one where we often bring our educator emotions into play ;-) this is a complex task but we do need expansive evidence that will show education a way forward - important I think to ensure we do not drop back into the 3 r's of teaching

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 1, 2017 8:55 PM
As Mal Lee would suggest, the key to understanding the research being undertaken here by Larry Cuban is to look for where schools have/are looking at the whole school as an example of a systems technology or an ecosystem in its own right. When viewed in this holistic manner, research on just one part of the system is like viewing a single tree in a forest, checking whether it is healthy and then assuming the whole forest is healthy or not.

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | Learning in a changing world | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.

 

While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.

 

Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

Since "upwards of ninety percent of our learning will occur outside formal educational settings" (Jennings, 2010), in the age of abundance of information, students should be motivated to reflect on how they are learning. That is what is self-directed learning
