    QUOTE OF THE WEEK

    "There is not a flower or bird in sight, only a small screen on which lines are moving, while the child sits almost motionless, pushing at the keyboard with one finger. As a learning environment, it may be mentally rich, but it is perceptually extremely impoverished. No smells or tastes, no wind or bird song (unless the computer is programmed to produce electronic tweets), no connection with soil, water, sunlight, warmth, the actual learning environment is almost autistic in quality, impoverished sensually, emotionally, and socially."

    -- John Davy


    SIX WAYS TO CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

    by Harvey Robbins and Michael Finley


    1. “Read articles and books about leadership.
    2. Attend conferences on leadership.
    3. Talk with other leaders about what they find difficult and how they handle these situations.
    4. Seek a mentor – someone in a leadership position who will volunteer to provide you with guidance and advice.
    5. Join associations on management and leadership and attend their luncheons.
    6. Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others (Robbins & Finley, 2004, p.86).”

    COACHING CALL TO ACTION


    This week practice the above 6 steps and add one more. Listen to you. What is your inner guidance telling you to do or not to do? Make time on a daily basis to quiet yourself and be centered. Then, listen to your own wisdom and ideas and include them in the learning process.
