Ken Blanchard was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of its top 25 best-selling authors for a reason. But I don’t think it’s just because he writes a lot of books. Knowing Ken for over 25 years and having the privilege of coauthoring three books with him, I discovered one of the keys to success. I think we can all learn from and apply his secret in our own lives: Ken has mastered his motivation.

World Class - How to Build a 21st-Century School System - en - OECD

World Class - How to Build a 21st-Century School System - en - OECD | Leadership to change our schools' cultures for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Data and research on education including skills, literacy, research, elementary schools, childhood learning, vocational training and PISA, PIACC and TALIS surveys., In a world where the kind of things that are easy to teach and test have also become easy to digitise and automate, it will be our imagination, our awareness and our sense of responsibility that will enable us to harness the opportunities of the 21st century to shape the world for the better. Tomorrow’s schools will need to help students think for themselves and join others, with empathy, in work and citizenship. They will need to help students develop a strong sense of right and wrong, and sensitivity to the claims that others make.What will it take for schools to be able to do this? Andreas Schleicher, initiator of the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and an international authority on education policy, has accompanied education leaders in over 70 countries in their efforts to design and implement forward-looking policies and practices. While improvement in education is far easier to proclaim than achieve, in this book Schleicher examines the many successes from which we can learn. This does not mean copying and pasting solutions from other schools or countries, but rather looking seriously and dispassionately at good practice in our own countries and elsewhere to understand what works in which contexts. Trained in physics, Schleicher offers a unique perspective on education reform: he convincingly argues that it should not necessarily be less of an art, but more of a science.'No one knows more about education around the world than Andreas Schleicher. Full stop. For the first time, he's collected 20 years worth of wisdom in one place. World Class should be required reading for policy makers, education leaders and anyone who wants to know how our schools can adapt for the modern world – and help all kids learn to think for themselves.'Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World, a New York Times bestseller'[Schleicher]…grasps all the key issues, and does so through keeping his ear to the ground and by working out solutions jointly with a variety of leaders at all levels of the system, and in diverse societies'Michael Fullan, Global Leadership Director, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning'Every visionary leader who is serious about improving student learning should add the data-driven World Class: How to Build a 21st-Century School System to the top of his or her reading list.'Jeb Bush, 43rd Governor of Florida, and Founder and Chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education'…a must-read for those who wish to create a future in which economic opportunity can be shared by all.'Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum'In this timely and forward-looking book, one of the most knowledgeable educators in the world draws on impressive data, keen observations, and considerable wisdom to indicate the paths to effective education for all young people.'Howard Gardner, Senior Director of Harvard Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education
