10 Responding to your Moral Imperativeas an Educator “Identifying with and being concerned about the state of Moral Purpose in the bigger picture is “Great Leadership”. Michael Fullan: The Moral Imperative of School Leadership (2003)


12 1-“For a “learning organization” it is not enough to survive. ”Survival learning” or what is more often termed “adaptive learning” is important – indeed it is necessary. But for a learning organization, “adaptive learning” must be joined by “generative learning”, learning that enhances our capacity to create” FOUR KEY SUGGESTIONS FROM PETER SENGE

13 2-“People are agents, able to act upon the structures and systems of which they are a part. All the disciplines are, in this way, concerned with a shift of mind from seeing parts to seeing wholes, from seeing people as helpless reactors to seeing them as active participants in shaping their reality, from reacting to the present to creating the future ”

14 3-“Simplistic frameworks are applied to what are complex systems. We tend to focus on the parts rather than seeing the whole, and to fail to see organization as a dynamic process.”

15 4-“Thus when faced with a problem, it is the ‘solutions’ that are close by that we focus upon. Classically we look to actions that produce improvements in a relatively short time span. However, when viewed in systems terms short-term improvements often involve very significant long-term costs.”


17 1-The challenges that innovators in education face are numerous! 2-Creating greater teamwork amongst the 1:1 practitioners is vital! 3-It takes much, much more than planning!! 4-Knowing and understanding the adversity is essential! Education Leaders

18 JOHN KOTTER: In Phi Delta Kappan magazine (Dec. 2010/Jan. 2011) mentions four common strategies from resisters of change: 1-Fear mongering: eg: Wifi is harmful 2-Death by Delay: eg: Pilot projects 3-Confusion: eg: Media focus 4-Ridicule: eg: Early adaptors
