Leadership is often considered the primary skill of successfull people. Unlike specific content knowledge taught in a traditional educational experience that has little practical application in future employment, leadership competencies and learned behaviors are useful to everyone no matter what job a person pursues.
iLead 21 is different. This program is not about memorizing information or keeping up with a pacing guide. Rather, it is a practical experience designed to allow people to learn about, practice, and develop leadership skills and tools that will prepare them for higher education, careers, and life. In this app, participants will be introduced to and practice many leadership skills including team collaboration, problem solving, and overcoming barriers, among others.
Because iLead 21 emphasizes growth and development more than achievements and success, students develop the mindset that mistakes and setbacks often create the greatest opportunities for personal improvement; they learn how to convert these setbacks into positive outcomes. Built on the principles of problem-based learning, iLead 21 is ideal as a semester or year-long class within the school day; an advisor/advisee program; an after-school, career pathways, or home school program; a Student Council/National Honor Society curriculum; or a stand-alone leadership experience for individuals interested in collaborating virtually with others on various leadership projects.
The one who does the work does the learning. iLead 21 creates prolonged opportunities for learners to practice leadership skills and encourages participants to appreciate set-backs and failures, for in that struggle, authentic and valuable learning occurs.
