    • Education in 2020 - Wish List
      • Individualization, Increased Flexibility, and Equity
      • Time, duration, space / what is studied / deep learning / local, less centralized control / student directed learning
      • Change in the role of the Teacher
      • Lead learner, model thinking / deep-learning coach / partners in decision-making / respected and well-paid
      • Networked Learning
      • Connectivism / global collaboration / diversity and social awareness / students as mentors / community and real-life integration
      • Change Outcomes
      • Success = learning how to learn / engagement trumps content / move from transcript to portfolio
    • The educational technologist is
      the key to keeping schools relevant
    • An action list for super-heroes
      to save
      education:
    • 1. Start with yourself
    • PLN
      PLE
      PLC
    • 2. Focus first on teachers, staff, administrators,
      and parents
    • Politics
      Parents
      Pet Peeve
    • 3. Encourage, at all levels, moving from an “obedience” to an “engagement” culture
    • 4. Make sure the tech serves the learning...
      ...then embed and make ubiquitous.
    • 5. Recognize the organic & inevitable nature of change
    • Planning
      Persistence
      Patience
