Bio

Educational analyst and audiologist

An idea worth spreading

Let's revise the remediation process in schools to focus on rehabilitation rather than compensation and accommodation. This will be more cost and time effective. For more see my webinar at http://braintrainerconnect.com/replay-chanie-monoker/

I'm passionate about

Learning and teaching.

Talk to me about

Professional development seminars. Remediation programs

People don't know I'm good at

Troubleshooting. Even a good program or system of education can benefit from my ability to hone in on the core issue and provide viable solutions.

My TED story

I was introduced to TED Talks when someone sent me one of Julian Treasure's talks. A treasure indeed! I was hooked on this community and the opportunity for learning that it offers.

Margaret Heffernan: Dare to disagree
Chalres, When a person is committed to one idea, model or plan and someone throws a kink in the works by suggesting something different this disagreement would be considered a conflict although not personal per say. I would venture that part of the concern here as mentioned indirectly in other comments is the push to comply, conform and "toe the line." I completely agree with Margaret that people at younger ages need to be educated on how to respectfully disagree. This would go a long way to solving the bullying problem that seems to have escalated.

The Relentless Learner has become the most important person in the worldwide search for talent. How can we identify them?
Fritzie, My response regarding professionals is unfortunately based on experience. In my position I deal with dozens of professionals and there are only a few that I actually recommend. (While this did compel me to begin providing workshops for professionals and write so that parents would be educated consumers, I still receive much grumbling pre-events as to why trainings are necessary when what they've been doing has been working well enough. Thank goodness I've never had anyone tell me post-event that it was a waste of their time, but more often I usually have people telling me even years later that they still apply what I've taught.)

I did not quit formal education. However, this does not change the fact that education is about giving you a taste of everything my given field encompasses. You are then left to your own devices to pursue your particular interests. Most professionals never move beyond what they are taught in school unless forced to. Those of us who are relentless learners are driven by a need to find answers, knowing that these answers make a difference. Too many professionals, when faced with unanswered questions, simply shrug and say "sorry can't help you." The relentless learner is the one who finds that answer unacceptable and if forced may say apologetically "I'm sorry I can't help you NOW" I'm not sure what business you are in Bob, but in any cutting edge business that is involved with R&D (such as technology or medicine) it is the relentless learner who is at work finding the cure for cancer, sometimes spending years even decades on a single pursuit. Why must "relentless learning" mean superficial temporary interest, by definition relentless means tenacious, not quitter or flighty?

What you would look for would depend on your need. I don't think it's a question of good or bad but rather desired or undesired. For an employee who can function independently in maintaining an existing position successfully, education and/or experience may be more important than if someone is looking to expand through a research and development type of position, where a relentless learner would be an important consideration.
