  • Focus on authentic assessment – choice is critical
  • Focus on Discussion / Activity / Interaction / use technology to support learningMove interaction outside the classroom!
  • Refs – Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, etc.PPT uploaded to Blackboard... too easy!
  • CHANGE = unsettling!...can cause: discouragement, fear, negativity, anger, pessimism, retreat, statis, depressionAs educators... we must prepare our children for this reality.We must equip ourselves for this reality... our children are watching us.may see this in some of your colleagues, your students
  • Connect – DO – Share is important to teach our students as well...Students & ourselves learning together – don’t have to be perfect!Be authentic & take risks, learn together.
  • And this is the corporate equivalent of the bullet slide. Hands-up everyone who has ever sat through one of these presentations? (much beloved by finance and marketing and new MBA graduates). And just how many of you have ever created one of these informational travesties?
  • Liberation!
  • Any artefact produced BEFORE the lecture cannot, by definition, tell the story of the lecture! What do students... KNOW... THINK... ASK?
  • Any artefact produced BEFORE the lecture cannot, by definition, tell the story of the lecture! What do students... KNOW... THINK... ASK?
  • Q: Where are you now?Q: What could you do, to take things further? Could you connect with someone new, or connect with someone in a deeper way? Could you do something... new, different, risky? Could you share some of your work? Write a blog post, start a new blog, start a new Twitter account? Could you share some of your ideas? ... on Twitter, on your blog, with your friends, other parents, parents association?I’d like to ask you to think of one thing you could do...If you want to tweet your response... use #Iwill
