  • How well are schools preparing students for this world?
    Not well.
  • Agreement on the problem, not on the solution.
  • Two Competing Stories

  • 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
