Session 6 – Agile Leadership – Ewan McIntosh


A year of school innovation around the world.  – website with links to videos

What is agile leadership – Teachmeets, response to change

How many of the ideas that you have heard at EduTECH could you implement – 95 on Tuesday????

Maybe we need to one thing really well – like McDonalds, or Jamies Italian.

Contradictions, Tensions, Surprises – Agile Leadership is all about working with these and making things easier.

Contradictions – Use what we know
Eg “homework” –  is it good or bad.

Tensions –
Eg “Feedback” Austin’s butterfly. -> passive feedback -> specific help -> trough of enlightenment (help a bit less from teachers) -> synthesise

The best way to do th  is manageably is with student feedback – feedback walls
Should we take away grading – tension!! Can allow students to take more risks.

Surprises –
Let people work it out for themselves
