037: ‘Be the Rope’ and Transform Your Leadership

Welcome to Episode 37 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I talk about what it means to ‘Be the Rope’ as a leader, and how this concept can transform your leadership mentality.

BE THE ROPE. 

When you are able to ‘Be the Rope’ for others, you will become the person they seek out most in their time of need, and you will become someone they look to follow.  They will trust YOU enough to hold their rope when they need it most.

BE THE ROPE that is Trustworthy

BE THE ROPE that Serves

               BE THE ROPE that is Unyielding

036: Technology is a Teacher’s Silverware

Welcome to Episode 36 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I talk about how technology is a teacher’s silverware, how it must be viewed as a tool to enhance learning, and how a good teacher leading the way is the most important factor in it all.

Technology is a teacher’s silverware. Our objectives, our lessons and our pedagogy, make up the meal that the feast we prepare for our students is based upon. It is the ‘silverware’ that serves as a tool to help us to enhance the experience overall.

Technology will…

  1. Enhance learning by differentiating to the needs of your students.
  2. Encourage individual learning and growth in a way that would be impossible otherwise
  3. Reach the diversity of learning styles that our students possess, and help  you meet them where they are.
  4. It can demonstrate and encourage innovation and help students push limits that they think are impossible to overcome.
  5. It can give immediate feedback on growth, and provide confidence to those who need it most.

But just like silverware, it is useless without YOU.
