    • Ryerson University sites 3 reasons for the case against him. 1.Learning should be hard. 2.There is no structure of regulation for online behavior and that makes it incompatible with academic work. 3.It is our job to protect academic integrity from any threat. i.e. Unless learning is hard and is directed by others, it fails to meet the standard for academic rigor. Chris Avenir
    • “Books are designed to contain all the information required to stop inquiries within the book’s topic. But now that our medium can handle far more ideas and information, and now that it is a connective medium (ideas to ideas, people to ideas, people to people), our strategy is changing. And that is changing the very shape of knowledge.” “Bringing smart people together is an ancient and effective technique for developing ideas. The Net also lets smart people connect and communicate. But the Net brings people together in new and occasionally weird configurations—a weirdness that is now being reflected in how expertise works....”

    • “As we watch the world move to a state of near-constant change and flux, we believe that connecting play and imagination may be the single most important step in unleashing the new culture of learning.” “...the pattern has been that as children grow up and become more proficient at making sense of the environment in which they live, their world seems to become more stable. Thus, as a child grows and becomes accustomed to the world, the perceived need for play.”

    • A New Culture of Accountability http://www.flickr.com/photos/yourdon/5131417568
    • From: Royan Lee
    • “...there is no word for "accountability" in Finnish.”
    • “Accountability is what's left when you take out responsibility.”
    • “I wish we could stop using the word "accountable" and instead talk about "responsible". It would make all the difference.”
    • Things you never see
    • “Distrust is an expensive vice” Dave Weinberger “Too Big To Know”
    • If we create cultures of trust and sharing, accountability is built in, not contrived or imposed, it just is.

    • "And when leaders are inaccessible…their influence and impact slowly deteriorate.  Confusion replaces clarity as trust slowly falters and eventually fails." http://dculberh.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/leadership-valves-release-and-control/

    • Thanks, Lisa, for filling us in on the details of DF teachers professional development. We are grateful for the amazing teachers our daughter has encountered so far at Springhurst. I am all for whatever we as a district can do to invest in the learning of this most precious resource. I'm looking forward to seeing you again this week at the Friday morning book chat. Happy holidays! Greta
    • Dear Dr. Brady - I do understand the importance of teacher development days, but why are they counted as our children's school days? I believe that for our teachers annual pay levels some summer school hours (teachers and/or students) would not be out of line. What are the impediments to that? How do we start a review and evaluation of the effectiveness of "Early Dismissal" days? This days are some of the most disruptive days my children have. Thank you. Sandra Merrow
    • Sandra, Thanks for your feedback and insights. Early Dismissal Days do count toward student attendance days and teacher PD is handled pretty much the same way in most school districts. We have quite a lot of summer professional development that occurs every summer. One of the challenges is that not all teachers can necessarily be here at the same time in the summer which limits the work that can be done by department or grade level teams. There is so much that needs to be done right now because of the new APPR requirements that necessitates teachers having time to work together on assessments, rubrics and planning. We really do try to do the best that we can with the limited time we have. Dr. Brady
    • When you hand someone a photo album or a yearbook, the first thing they will do is seek out their own picture. Knowing that, the question is: how often are you featuring the photo, name, needs or wants of your customers where everyone can see them? “ ”Seth Godin

    • Rather than write my goal in a book, I decided to create my own t-shirt. I have worn my t-shirt at CDNIS during staff meetings and grade level assemblies. The response from staff and students has been somewhat overwhelming as many are keen to get a ‘daily’ update
