21st Century Leadership | - 0 views

  • In a presentation given to us by Pieter Spinder, the tribe-cheerleader himself, he describes his vision of what leadership could mean in the 21st Century:
  • Leadership qualities that he firmly believes are integral to be a successful leader both for yourself and the world include: humility and integrity.
  • “If you lose your integrity, you lose everything.”

  • the courage to fail and learn from it is essential to being a successful risk-taker.
  • The 21st Century leader can coach teams in collaboration, consensus building, and conflict resolution.
  • “If you are passionate about something, that’s where you will lead.”
  • Further qualities Spinder addresses include magnanimity and openness.
  • “A leader must have vision, must engender respect, be determined and honest, must be able to bind people and analyze, inspire and motivate, must be able to listen but take decisions. A certain degree of charisma is also desired. It’s a combination of vision and perseverance on one hand, and modesty and openness on the other. “

Clay Shirky: 'Paywall will underperform - the numbers don't add up' | Technology | The ... - 0 views

  • His predictions for the fate of print media organisations have proved unnervingly accurate; 2009 would be a bloodbath for newspapers, he warned – and so it came to pass.
  • "Look, we got erotic novels, first crack out of the box, once we had printing presses. It took a century and a half for the Royal Society to start publishing the first scientific journal in English. So even with the sacred printing press, the first things you get serve the basest human urges. But the presence of the erotic novels did not prevent us from pressing the printing presses into the service of the scientific revolution. And so I think every bit of time spent fretting about the fact that people have base desires which they will use this medium to satisfy is a waste of time – because that's been true of every medium ever launched."
  • Shirky does not own a television. Americans watch, collectively, two hundred billion hours of television a year, and if online social media diverts even just a fraction of that time, he argues, that has to be a good thing. "As I say in the book, even the stupidest possible creative act is still a creative act. And I'd still take the most inane collaborative website over someone watching yet another half hour of TV."

  • So, there's two things to this paradox. One is that those conversations were always happening. People were saying those nasty things to one another in the pub or whatever. You just couldn't hear them before. So it's a change in our awareness of truth, not a change in the truth."Then there's this second effect, that anonymity makes people behave more meanly. What I think is going to happen there is we are slowly going to set up islands of civil discourse.
    Clay Shirky tiivistää, mistä sosiaalisessa mediassa ja avoimissa sisällöissä oikein on kyse.

The Finnish Education System Rocks! Why? - 1 views

  • In short, Singapore and Finland have become world renowned for their education systems, but interestingly they have achieved their success using quite different approaches (to say it mildly!).
  • Here are five reasons, why Finish people have been, and are successful: Quality education with equal opportunity High level of investments in R&D for technology development Good regulatory framework and efficient public service Open economy: competition has to prevail Social model: social market economy, welfare society
  • ...10 more annotations...
  • Besides free and universal high-level education from comprehensive school to university (6% of GDP directed to public education), Finland stresses also equal opportunity for all, irrespective of domicile, sex, economic situation or mother tongue. Teachers are required to be trained in dealing with low-achieving students, as well as students with disabilities and learning difficulties.
  • The fact that education is free, including travel expenses, welfare services, accommodation, books and other school material, means that students can focus more of their time on learning, rather than all the other distractions that might come with it.
  • Interestingly, a teacher must have a master's degree to teach in Finland, and also have a lifelong learning program mapped out for them. They emphasize a lot on lifelong learning, and it is kind of embedded into the their learning culture.
  • Finland don't rank students or schools, and they don't emphasize on standardized nationwide examinations that drive students, teachers and parents nuts.
  • I personally believe (based on my shallow understanding) the Finnish education system has managed to infuse discipline, hard work, and competitiveness, but at the same time also infuse the right balance to nurture critical skills required for the 21 century, which include communication, collaboration, creativity (innovativeness), critical thinking, problem solving, digital literacy, flexibility, adaptability, global care/awareness, and emotional intelligence.
  • In addition, the Finnish education system is rather decentralized and schools are given a degree of freedom (independence) to develop their own curriculum. The problem with having a centralized system and curriculum, is that if you get it wrong, the whole country will suffer. Also, with a top-down model, it is difficult to quickly innovate and spark changes to the curriculum that is needed to deal with the increasingly disruptive learning world that we are experiencing today. However, in a decentralized system, schools can easily change and adapt as they learn, and also they have more freedom to explore and try out new things, without needing to worry about ranking of this and that.
  • Finally, Finland emphasizes big time on research and development (around 4% of GDP), and have interlinked companies with the Universities to collaborate on new innovations. Whatever they do, their approach is very scientific, which of course includes how they are continuously improving their education systems.
  • Focus less on exams, and more on learning.
  • Focus more on teacher education, and less on centralized content/curriculum.
  • Focus less on investing on flowers and big buildings, and more on equipping educators and students with the learning tools needed to transform the way they learn.
