Tech Tidbits is a place to share great tech ideas for teachers. I’ll be blogging mostly on Tuesday’s after collecting ideas from the Trenches. Please share your ideas with me and let me know if you want to be featured on this blog.
So for the first installation of Tidbit Tuesday I wanted to share an inspirational video that was shared with my department by +Leslie Cohen. In this video Simon Sinek describes how great leaders communicate with and inspire others.
He asks us to think about this in terms of why ” By “why,” I mean: What’s your purpose? What’s your cause? What’s your belief? Why does your organization exist? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? And why should anyone care? Well, as a result, the way we think, the way we act, the way we communicate is from the outside in. It’s obvious. We go from the clearest thing to the fuzziest thing. But the inspired leaders and the inspired organizations — regardless of their size, regardless of their industry — all think, act and communicate from the inside out. ”
After viewing this TED talk I am inspired to begin leading my students in a different way. I will continue to teach as I always have but will infuse it with the why?
The current climate of education seems to have lost sight of the why or the belief in why we educate. Why are we relying on standardized test to judge?
