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 hav...
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?

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,

“What’s Good?”
Is Better than “What’s New?”
Tell A Better Story:
 We Must Have Vision

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




                     ...
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,

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.

My Two Cents:
  Thoughtful
  Wise
  Passionate
  Kind
Caring Institutions




We Teach Kids, Not Subjects
Inquiry-Driven




What are the questions we
can ask together?
Student-Centered




  It’s Not About Us.
Teacher-Mentored




  Kids Need Adults
Community-Based




          We can learn from many
Collaborative




Synthesis Works
Passionate




             And it has to matter.
Integrated




             The day has to make sense
Meta-Cognitive




                 We need to think
                  about thinking.
Authentic

    19. 19. 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.
