nay, for anything that should happen, there must be reason(s) behind. this is especially true where CL as a subject is concerned in our unique education environment. current reality is that many of our students are simply BORED by CL lessons. 2 major reasons behind this:

my lunch’s finally here … *GO GO GO*
spent the whole day today in school library in a workshop. the facilitator for the course was dr ng pak tee ?????. touched on the grow me model. looked at it as an extension of the epms system and learnt quite a number of useful tips from there. some takeaways:
‘you have to take up new things and discard old things. schools are the only organisations that takes everything and keeps everything (cf sony)’
‘how do we expect to inspire learners if there are no fresh fish among teachers’
|—> mental model –> …
|—> shared vision –> …
|—> team learning –> …
|—> system thinking –> …
|—> personal mastery –> coaching –> partnership, peer, team, 360 deg’
‘lo is an organisation whose growth is fuelled by learning’
‘learn –> change –> reflect –> learn … …: when one truly learns, you will change becoz of wat u learnt, and upon changing, u reflected on the process and u learn from the reflection process, and you’ll change and … and the cycle continues’
‘learning without practice goes misguided ????’
