  • 3. To school as a business:
    More people choosing us, more funding, more options.
    To communityas a school:
    More people hungry to learn/share/live.
    This is a people agenda.
  • 4. School as a business:
    We could be educating the world but policy keeps getting in the way.
    -David Wiley, Open High School of Utah (model for Thompson Online)
    Community as a school:
    In the US, when you say real life people tend to define it as: outside of school.
    - Michael Wesch, K-State,
  • 5. to deck
  • 6. People are seeking choice.
  • 7. However in ed, too many of our choices are basically
    reproducing
    the
    same
    thing.
  • 8. the
    same
    thing
    And
    .. begs a new roof every year.
    (What we’ve learned from studying homelessness.)
    Recycling through this “grass is always greener” mentality/mobility, compounds an ongoing misuse of resources, money, and people. Keeping us not only bound to the very thing we were choosing not to do, but mindless that we’re the ones perpetuating it.
    And dang, dandelions spread fast.
  • 9. On listening to kids last school year 2009-2010
    Focus of research:
    How to redefine school via student voice.
    We got almost as many different answers as different kids.
    Almost every answer had an opposite.
    One common answer – community service in every course.
    Focus of findings:
    Nothing is for everyone. How do we facilitate that?
    4 year plan of disruption
    Facilitating chaos freaks most people out. But one thing kids
    have mastered is networking/connecting. These turn out to
    be the very glue that will not only help us ride the shift wave,
    but wholeheartedly and blissfully, swim in the ocean.
    -rings of Clay Shirky’s Cognitive Surplus
  • 10. YOUth have different ideas…
  • 11. Their Dandelion Effect
    2003: S Korea bans US beef imports – mad cows disease.
    2008: Korean President Lee Myung-bak lifts ban.
    Korean citizens stage Korea’s first family-friendly protest.
    It lasts over a month.
    Over half the protesters are teenage girls.
    Why?
    DBSK, a boy band.
    DBSK’s online site, on facebook, with nearly a million users, provided these girls with an opportunity to discuss whatever they wanted, including politics.
    Massed together, frightened and angry that Lee’s government had agreed to what seemed a national humiliation and a threat to public health, the girls decided to do something about it.
    - Clay Shirky, Cognitive Surplus
  • 12. Their Dandelion Effect
    They are ready to change the world.
    Many of you, like the Youth Digital Media Project – are listening to them.
    We need to listen louder.
    They are connected to each other. That is power like we’ve never seen.
  • 13. What’s coming could blow us away.
    We get to decide which Dandelion Effect we prefer.
    note: YOUth is you to whatever degree you decide.

  • 17. …in ed
    We think we have bang up lessons...
    but have we asked the kids?
    Do they carry ideas
    outside the class?
    Past the tests?
    Do we hear global voices
    in our classrooms?
    Do we speak their
    language,
    are we too busy
    insisting that they
    speak ours?
    Are we too busy
    getting things done
    to notice.

    On Newton’s Law at Harvard, a study showing that barely any can apply it on arrival, and only about half can at the end of the year.
    On AP classes… US study asked students as they left class what just went on.
    Most couldn’t say. How were they able to do well on the test?
    They gathered after hours in student organized study groups.

    400 local charitable organizations – CO is 9th in suicide rate, in Larimer Cty – on average every 9 days someone takes their life
    We are big on saving the whales, cleaner air, more trees,
    …what about the human spirit.
    What if we were green about people?
    We don’t need more resources, we just need to be more resourceful.
    Alan Webber
    teachpaperless: reduce $ for pd, platform, paper, etc
    Budget savings idea– guaranteed same budget every year + ½ of how much below budget you ended.
  • 24. Community as a school:
    In the US, when you say real life people tend to define it as: outside of school.
    - Michael Wesch, K-State,
    What if school involved everyone, the entire town?
    Wouldn’t we all be better off?
    Health - people being known by people
    Budget – the more we know each other, the more we share
    Environmental – the more we share, the less we need
    Sir Ken writes in The Element of Grange Primary of Long Eaton, England, creating Grangeton, with its own
    mayor, council, newspaper, etc

    taken from Will Richardson’s: be safe, be ethical, be efficient
  • 27. What about this…
    Success is how well the people around you are doing.
    Are they better off?
    Because of you?
    Kevin on community.
    Pop stars (grades)aren’t important anymore, what’s important is the people around us – now we have micro-celebrities that are real celebrities. When more people are on the same level, it gives us the freedom of space to think differently and act differently.
    Jim describing the thinking behind a means to monitor growth. What’s worth measuring. How do you measure what’s worth doing.
  • 28. Are you better off?
    Isn’t this its own reward?
    The measures we came up with:
    Is it awesome? Does it matter?
    Both beg – to whom.

    Is it awesome? Does it matter?
    ….Priceless
    Yet – everyone can afford this. And then some… if they are given back the
    time/money/resources spent on policy currently being used
    to control school as a business.
    Randy Turner on testing and more
    McGraw's 2010 pay package totaled $9,591,916, an increase of $2.4 million over his 2009 take-home pay. ..The company's other three top officials earned $3.9 million, $2.5 million, and $2.2 million, respectively. If he is fired, he will receive $2,921,095, the proxy statement indicates. If his removal comes because of a sale of the company, that amount climbs to $5,812,290, and either way, McGraw picks up $2,433,938 in stock options.
    …I couldn't tell the mother her son's ACUITY scores are not important, because they are. It's not learning, but as long as we worship at the altar of "accountability," it's as close as we are going to get. also tyranny of the test - Kaplan tester tells all
  • 30. We can have high standards without standardization.
    Young people have a remarkable capacity for intensity.
    Remove all stakes.
    Shift more agency to the learner.
    - Gary Stager
  • 31. Maybe fishing with your family is success. To you. To your community.
    Cristian talking passion with his brother.
    Are we Schooling the World by our definition of success?
    Is respect for every voice a part of our soul?
    Film by Carol Black – high recommend.
    Book by Jacqueline Novogratz – high recommend.
    Film by Tom Shadyac – high recommend.
    There are many, but along with Jacqueline’s Acumen Fund, are Cameron Sinclair’s Architecture for Humanity, and Scott Harrison’s charity: water - incredible models of listening to culture, to soul..

  • 33. 10,000 hrs of practice and prep appears to be the crucial threshold, marking the difference between simply being good at something and becoming extraordinary at it.
    - Malcom Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success
  • 34. Amateur means love, yet, it appears to be they don’t love their art enough to sell out.
    Professional means they do it for pay, yet, a true professional can’t not do their art, they are sold out and it’s not about the money.
    The sign of the amateur is over glorification of and preoccupation with the mystery. The pro shuts up. She doesn’t talk about it. She does her work.
    The amateur believes he must first overcome his fear, the he can do his work. The pro knows that fear can never be overcome. He knows there is no such thing as a fearless warrior or a dread free artist.
    The pro understands that the fields alter everyday. His goal is not victory (success will come by itself when it wants to) but to handle himself, his insides, as sturdily and steadily as he can.
    - Steven Pressfiled, The War of Art

  • 39. Gus on something bigger than, something beyond. Hard work.
    It’s more than an opportunity, it’s a responsibility.
    The exhaustion from overextending yourself creatively is some of the best exhaustion you will ever feel. An organization that provides a platform for people to push into their fear will produce both better work and a better workforce.
    - Seth Godin, Underextended

    A mindset valuing the human spirit over any policy/standard/etc we have previously adhered to. In education even.
  • 50. This changes the game.
    Not that something like this hasn’t happened before. But that it hasn’t happened today. At just this right time.
  • 51. Doing what has been considered standard
    doesn’t equate with success anymore.
    We need to be freeing kids up to
    be themselves. Giving them space
    to fail. Showing them we trust
    learning. That it is that fascinating
    and alluring.
    Lucas with a CSU student talking about space and permission to be.
  • 52. Could we make this a place that would accept me, and more importantly, be able to keep people like me?
    On the West Coast, you’ve got Peter Thiel, paying people to drop out of college. And I thought: let’s flip this around. Aren’t there a bunch of those people who dropped out who should be here at the Media Lab and how can we figure that out? That’s one of my missions.

    When we exclude, we miss incredible adjacent possibilities. Nothing is for everyone.
    Let’s use that for good.
  • 53. We can do any of that. We can do all of that. And more. Together.

  • 57. be mindful.
    Instead of embracing the diversity of the human mind we have
    stigmatized
    the very differences
    that are so
    characteristic of humans.
    The DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) declared war on the introverts, and the educationally challenged among others and has attempted to
    define what a normal human should be,
    an extroverted individual who works well with people, progresses well in conventional schooling, and will succeed in a conventional job.

    At the very least, good mentoring raises self-esteem and sense of purpose. But mentoring takes an elevated role for people when it involves directing or inspiring their search for *the Element.
    - Sir Ken Robinson, The Element
    *the Element: meeting point between natural aptitude and personal passion. Doing the thing you love, and in doing it you feel like your most authentic self.

    If we want to seriously consider a world of equity and redefine the motto of No Child Left Behind we should be facilitating, at the very least, 1-1 relationships such as this, for those who don’t have access to it at home or don’t have a home, as we work on freeing up parents from whatever is holding them back.
    Deb, a parent in the Lab, just emailed me her very first post about this very thing.

    The web can also allow us to create serendipity when we gather in a room.
    Imagine freeing up to 70% of class time that is often spent on classroom management.
    Imagine no need for all the programs and initiatives to get kids (teachers) motivated,
    engaged.
    Imagine no more cutting teachers that are making a difference.
  • 69. What if most of what we do on a daily basis, is actually getting in the way?
    What if we took more time to know someone?
    What if the best medicine is to be known by someone?
    Ellen Langer, along with others I’m sure, has done extensive research on mindfulness, and how it plays out in every area of our lives.

    The five things we wanted to spread
    while we were in Africa. We wanted

    the above but we were unaware and
    oblivious that we were experiencing all of it as well.
    Do they live in poverty? Politically, yes. They suffer from not having nearly as much things as we have. When I spent two weeks in Africa, the people there had more joy and more love than I have ever witnessed anyone have. I envied them. 
    Are we in poverty? We’re missing something. It may not be toys or cars or giant houses. But it’s something.

  • 74. When teenage girls can help organize events that unnerve national governments, without needing professional organization or organizers to get the ball rolling, we are in new territory. As Mimi Ito describes the protesters,
    Their participation in the protests was grounded less in the concrete conditions of their everyday lives, and more in their solidarity with a shared media fandom… Although so much of what kids are doing online may look trivial and frivolous, what they are doing is building the capacity to connect, to communicate, and ultimately, to mobilize.
    .. What’s distinctive about this historical moment and today’s rising generation is not only a distinct form of media expression, but how this expression is tied to social action.

    Note: We’ve learned just as much/more from those who didn’t experience expected outcomes in the Lab. We know what doesn’t work and why. That helps us discriminate what does work.
