Leadership in a Networked World

How is Education Leadership in our Networked World different from leadership in the past?

Over the next few weeks, we are considering the skills needed for leaders in a rapidly changing world.

We consider this recent article: Are you a Digital or Analog Leader?

From Bill Fisher in Forbes: Are you an Analog or a Digital Leader?

 

As you look at the article, consider the chart that compares analog and digital leaders.  While this article is for business leaders, we see many words that are bubbling up in education conversations today: “fail”, “ideas”, “multi-disciplinary”, “ecosystem”, “innovation”…

 

We also consider the ISTE Standards for Administrators.

What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?

Ask yourself that.

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”

Abdul Chohan (@abdulchohan) left the crowd of 800+ education leaders with that question last evening in Banff, Alberta.

On March 17 at 8 p.m. EST, our open mic conversations will focus on some of the learning from the international perspective shared at #uLead15.

Guiding Questions:

1. What does engagement mean in a K12 context? (Hargreaves)

2. Why is it important to work with people outside of our own district, provinces and country?

3. Why is it important to have educational benchmarks in relation to the rest of the world?

4. What’s new in 21C skills?

5. What is school for?

6. “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” (Abdul Chohan)

What Innovative Practices Have You Observed?

March is Innovation and Creativity month in the OSSEMOOC community.

Last Tuesday evening, we took time to explore the ICE protocol being introduced to SHSM students in Ontario (in partnership with the Rotman School of Management).

ICE is Innovation – Creativity – Entrpreneurship.

How well do we introduce these concepts to students in Ontario?

What are the differences between Innovation and Creativity?

What are the important aspects to share with students?

These are some of the areas we explored.

On Tuesday, March 10, we will have a number of education leaders sharing their observations around innovative practices in classrooms.  This is not earth-shaking innovation, but simple, doable, innovative thinking around improving the conditions for learning for students in Ontario.

Be sure to drop in and share your stories and to hear how Ontario is moving forward with innovative thinking.

A link to the meeting (Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 8 p.m. EST) will be posted here.
