  • To better prepare students for the future there will be more emphasis on key competencies like:
  • . . . With the world outside of school
  • We can’t wait for the decisions of others – it is go time . . . now
  • All the necessary infrastructure is in place
  • Do old things better
  • If I'd have asked my customers what they wanted, they would have told me "A faster horse.” – Henry Ford
  • It is access to the benefits of a digitized world that is the greater goal. For our students to thrive in this world, they need to have ACCESS and DIRECTION.
  • To be clear, one-to-one computing is not the solution to any challenge – it may, though, be part of the answer to going forward.
  • If we think by placing an Internet appliance in a student’s hands alone will create a more creative, innovative, or more intelligent student, we are missing the point. Like the paper and pen of the last generation, it is the “oxygen” to breathe in a digital world.
  • Won’t this further divide our students (and teachers) into haves and have-nots?Given that it is unlikely any grand plan will come together to support all students and staff with technology, implementation will be incremental.
  • If we believe technology is crucial for students moving forward, we need to find a way for all students to have a base level of access.
  • Complex problems often have a simple solution
  • External inventions will continue to dramatically impact what we do, and we have no control over it!
  • There will be teachers who continue to push the boundaries, who will do amazing and edgy stuff – teachers always have and always will. This should be encouraged, but it is not the base expectation.
  • Focus on a web environment / space for learning / personalization that allows a common structure that changes the norm of how we do business
  • Have high expectations for leadership with your administrators and librarians
  • Find your “simple thing” that changes the norm – it could be:1.    Digital writing2.    Digital content3.    PortfolioNote all 3 fit into the content, learning, assessment triangle. Need to find the one sticky piece to expand learning.
  • Link technology to physical activity and the arts – it is not just about language arts – integrate, integrate, integrate!  (High Tech High examples)
  • Not allow technology to solely report to the business side of the organization
  • More staff (and not just students) will be bringing their own devices to workDistricts will own and store lessTension between formal and informal learning will increase; what matters most is what happens in informal settings – the true learning!Digital content will increase / devices will get cheaper
  • Tension between formal and informal learning will increase; what matters most is what happens in informal settings – the true learning!
  • Digital content will increase / devices will get cheaper
  • More staff (and not just students) will be bringing their own devices to workDistricts will own and store lessTension between formal and informal learning will increase; what matters most is what happens in informal settings – the true learning!Digital content will increase / devices will get cheaper
  • Moving from a space to a plan – how will we manage personalized learning in the digital space?Use the Khan Academy map of an individual plan – layered into assessment and demonstrations
  • Link technology to physical activity and the arts – it is not just about language arts – integrate, integrate, integrate!  (High Tech High examples)
  • Start at Grades 4–7 (maybe 6-8 if a middle model) – spill both ways over time – the “sweet spot” extends from 4 – 10 depending on your school organization
  • Tension between formal and informal learning will increase; what matters most is what happens in informal settings – the true learning!
  • Leading from the Library - BCTLA -- October 19, 2012
