Einstein: 8 Ways to Lead Yourself Without Being a Genius

Einstein: 8 Ways to Lead Yourself Without Being a Genius | Lim Wan Cheng | Scoop.it

He never attributed his accomplishments to his brilliant mind. Rather, he credited his character - his simple curiosity combined with relentless determination.

Albert Einstein went so far as to say he was not smarter than other people. He just stuck with things longer than anybody else.

It's a great lesson in self-leadership for us all. There are many smart people in this world going nowhere fast.

 

Here is what Einstein had to say, and how we can apply his words of wisdom to our daily lives today.

Online learning is 'the blackboard of the future'

Online learning is 'the blackboard of the future' | Lim Wan Cheng | Scoop.it
Children in nurseries will soon be learning through Moocs (Massive Open Online Courses) as the internet revolution changes the face of learning, according to the man who first pioneered their use in higher education. Today's two- and three-year-olds have been born with keyboards "pinned to their fingers", Dr Anant Agarwal, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, insists. As a result, it makes sense to utilise the skills they had acquired and give them a basic start to literacy and numeracy through computer games in the kindergarten or nursery schools.

How to Avoid Burnout: Getting Things Done Efficiently - Self Stairway | Lim Wan Cheng | Scoop.it

You’re always going to want to get the best results possible in the least amount of time. It’s only natural. You’re human. But don’t get this mindset confused with efficiency. It’s not the same.

 

In fact, you’re probably doing a lot of things with an inefficient approach.

"So, in honor of all of the teachers and educators who follow this blog, I thought I would share and adapt a pin that I found two days ago. A truly sentimental and adorable idea a photographer mother shared. Her daughter was turning 8 and the class used the SMART board to list one adjective that described the birthday girl. I can only imagine how special and uplifting this was for the child as well as touching for the mother. The final product was the picture of the child with all of the adjectives floating around her. Truly, what an amazing keepsake!"

Start with Why: How great leaders inspire action | Classic, Video TED.com

"People don't buy what you do, but buy why you believe it."

 

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?" His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers ...


Belief...  


The law of diffusion of innovation:  TIVO, the single highest quality product on the market, great market conditions.  Yet a commercial failure.

For Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech, there where no invitations.  The focus was on belief.  250,000 people showed up to hear him speak.  They showed up for themselves for what they believed for America.  25% of the audience was white. 

“[Martin Luther King, Jr.] gave the ‘I have a dream’ speech, not the ‘I have a plan’ speech.”

When I was reading this article about iPads make better readers and writer I didn't really believe at first but when i kept reading it seem like its true. According to a English teacher in Euclide OH jumped right board about using iPads and his students have better test scores. So in this age students are using iPads for reading and writing. 

Marisol Espinoza's curator insight, March 12, 2016 10:13 PM
I wanted to look up an article that could help me become a better reader and become more efficient when I'm reading especially when it came to textbooks. First strike of this article was it started off with "Once a upon a time...", really? Am I reading a children's story or am I wanting to read a very thought-out, educational article? The article seemed somewhat okay with what the author was saying and how the Professor did a survey on how students test better when they are I-pad users which is debatable, but the second strike that honestly made me stop wanting to read this article was that in some Kindergarten classrooms they put about 5 I-pads for children to share and they use them as reinforcement tools for what the children just learned in class, because as a kindergarten teacher it's hard to control a classroom so they distract them with electronics. All I got to say is my children are screwed. Yes using I-pads or computers are very useful, but for a 5 year old? There is just no way that result will turn into a good idea.

Organizational Mythologies - Can this Bad Leader Be Saved?

"Organizations create mythologies that become part of the culture.They are stories with great impact.   But they are still just stories.  Blind acceptance of mythologies costs money, morale, and motivation."

How do these mythologies impact yourorganization?


Organizational Mythology #1 - Working with people requires "Soft Skills“.


Organizational Mythology #2 - Leaders are made, not born.  


Organizational Mythology #3 - Training changes organizations.


Organizational Mythology #4 - All projects are created equal.


Organizational Mythology #5 - Power is bad. 


Organizational Mythology #6 - The greatest organizational mythof all: Bad leaders can change.

Increasing number of schools replacing textbooks with tablets | Lim Wan Cheng | Scoop.it
Tablets offer both educational and financial advantages to schools.

 

Tablets are increasingly replacing textbooks in U.S. schools due to their ability to increase student interest, reward achievements and cut costs.Around 2,000 schools are partnered with Google to use its Chromebooks (which start at $199), numerous districts like Austin's Eanes Independent School District have deployed iPads and NewsCorp. now offers its 10-inch Amplify tablet for $299.Two of the biggest advantages of issuing digital textbooks via tablets include fast turnaround on the addition of new information to texts and lower costs--Discovery's "Techbooks" cost around $38-$55 per student, compared to an average of $70 for traditional textbooks.
