Why This Matters
My Bias:
School 2.0 is
Progressive
Education with 21st
Century Tools
More Bias:




  Citizenry, Not Workforce
One Last Bias:
 Public Education = Democracy
What They Say About Us
 Obsolete
 Broken
 Wasteland
 Money Pits
 Failing
The Problem Is...
 If we keep down our current path, they’re right.
The Great Big Question:
         How can we have so many passionate,
dedicated educators in our schools and still have
   ...
Fix the System:
 Put a good person into a bad system and the
                   system will win every time.
Data Driven Decisions:
  Assume that you use good data -- and good
                           data ain’t cheap.
Our Biggest Problem:
            A Lack of Vision
There is no silver bullet.
                   What do we need?
                   What do we value?
You Can’t Standardize:




  Differentiated Instruction,
      Differentiated Schools
What the school system needs to understand is that its
strength lies, not in the strength of the central
organization, but...
If you want creative workers, give them
         enough time to play.

            - John Cleese

We Learn Best
     When It Matters To Us
Things Are Different




   How Do We Deal With That?
If we teach today's students
as we taught yesterday's, we
    rob them of tomorrow.

        John Dewey
The illiterate of the 21st century will
 not be those who cannot read and

Scary Thought:
   What are we willing to unlearn and relearn?
So Now What?
What is your vision of
      school?

    What do you value?
My Two Cents:
  Thoughtful
  Wise
  Passionate
  Kind
Pedagogy Matters.

What Do We Gain?
       What Do We Lose?

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
