  • What’s coming back: http://www.scienceleadership.org/drupaled/blog/sarmstrong/11-feb-2008/774#comment-430 that we can just sit here and read an article and drop our jaws but not do a darn thing about it. Im not old enough to do anything yet but if i were i would definately try to make a difference just like the adults today should be doing by taking charge and helping. I dont understand how people can seriously not give a care in the world. I mean what if it was you and your child, would you want someone to help you? i know some people would avoid the question just because they dont want to say the answer they know is right but i mean seriously. THINK!

      • I notice…
      • I wonder…
      • What if…
  • New Learners Must Be…
    • Self-learners who are able to navigate the 10 or 15 or however many job changes people are predicting for them by the time they are 30
    • Self-selectors who must find and evaluate and finally choose their own teachers and collaborators as they build their own networks of learners
    • Self-editors who can look at a piece of information and assess it on a variety of levels, not simply believe it because someone else does
    • Self-organizers who can manage the slew of information coming at them by developing their own structures and strategies for making sense of it all
    *Will Richardson (http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/its-the-empowerment-stupid/)
  • New Learners Must Be… *Will Richardson (http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/its-the-empowerment-stupid/) Self-reflectors who are not solely dependent on external evaluation to drive their decision making and their evolution as learners and people Self-publishers who understand the power and importance of sharing and connecting information and knowledge and can do it effectively and ethically Self-protectors who understand where the online dangers lie, can recognize them, and can act appropriately to stay away from harm
  • Of Course…
    • ...all of this requires a certain willingness to relinquish control, not just of the things we know but of the things we don’t know.
    *Will Richardson (http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/its-the-empowerment-stupid/)
  • What about your classroom? SU-HU-PU: Where do you offer your students choices in your classroom? Where could you give more choices?
  • “ We, as teachers, need to be so enthralled with the magnificent possibilities of our occupation that we actually enjoy spending time honing our craft, multiplying our skills. Imagine if every teacher eliminated, for example, 2 hours of television watching each week and devoted it to reading professional materials, poring over the web, or collaborating with colleagues.” - Randy Rodgers http://randyrodgers.edublogs.org/2007/05/13/the-lost-art-of-discovery-and-time-the-enemy/
