  • School 2.0 Creating The Schools We Need Chris Lehmann Principal Science Leadership Academy
  • Who Is This Guy?
  • Why This Matters
  • What should our schools be about? And how we do get there?
  • My Bias: School 2.0 is Progressive Education with 21st Century Tools
  • More Bias: Citizenry, Not Workforce
  • Yet Another Bias: Educators, parents and students know more about school than politicians.
  • One Last Bias: Public Education = Democracy
  • The Great Big Question: How can we have so many passionate, dedicated educators in our schools and still have so many problems?
  • Fix the System: Put a good person into a bad system and the system will win every time.
  • The World In Which We Live: The Maddening Paradox of Education 2010.
  • Data Driven Decisions Assume that you use good data -- and good data ain’t cheap.
  • Accountability = External Responsibility = Internal
  • Just a teacher syndrome.
  • Organize If not me, who? If not now, when? http://www.flickr.com/photos/library_of_congress/2163922974/
  • Education Not Training http://www.flickr.com/photos/whsimages/998243013/
  • A Big Problem: A Lack of Humility
  • A Related Problem: The Discussion is A-Historical
  • What the school system needs to understand is that its strength lies, not in the strength of the central organization, but in the strength of the individual school, not in making one school like another, but in making each school a distinct unit. The need of the system is the preservation of its units, so that each school can keep itself alive, wide awake, responsive to its people, easily adaptable, the best of its kind. Angelo Patri -- A Schoolmaster of the Great City
  • “What’s Good?” Is Better than “What’s New?”
  • Tell A Better Story: We Must Have Vision http://www.flickr.com/photos/lnx/6257130/
  • You Can’t Standardize Differentiated Instruction, Differentiated Schools
  • We Learn Best When It Matters To Us
  • If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play. - John Cleese http://www.flickr.com/photos/edublogger/ 838786841/ Photo by Ewan McIntosh
  • Things Are Different How Do We Deal With That?
  • The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn. -- Alvin Toffler http://www.flickr.com/photos/mwichary/2225299236/
  • Scary Thought: What are we willing to unlearn and relearn?
  • If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow. John Dewey
  • So Now What?
  • Ideas Are Easy Implementation Is Hard
  • Have a vision And build everything around it.
