  • I like to play, create and learn <br />

  • <br />
  • My talk has 3 parts: <br /> - background and perspective on education and society in general...my take. That was then, this is now <br /> - my personal approach <br /> -Ideas on moving forward <br />

  • Daughter asked, if I was the assistant <br /> <br /> Great stories <br /> <br />
  • <br /> -Bradley: Supposed to learn to read in grade one. He was already reading at about a grade 3 level <br /> <br />
  • -Michael: Used to cut other kids sweaters with scissors <br /> <br />
  • -Christina: Never smiled. My goal was to get her to laugh <br /> <br /> <br />
  • -Lacey: No matter what I assigned, she always drew unicorns <br /> <br /> <br />

  • .....the problem was that teaching 20 years ago and some say even today is...... <br />
  • Some loved the closed door environments <br /> There was definitely a sink or swim mentality. <br /> The feeling that you were an independent contractor prevailed. <br /> Collaboration was rare and in many cases not necessary. <br /> <br />
  • While education may have been an isolated experience in some ways, community was pretty important for much of the 20th century. <br /> Barn Raising <br /> Bowling Alone....Curling Alone <br /> The Pop in <br /> Community is in our DNA <br />
  • Yet schools and the work place continued to foster and promote independence to the exclusion of community. <br /> These were competitive spaces where survival of the fittest mentality reigned. <br />
  • Lots of things around us are pointing to change. <br />
  • Or until we are forced <br /> The introduction to this changes everything. <br /> Learning has no boundaries, or at least there are fewer. <br /> What does this look like? <br /> These things are taking many to some very uncomfortable places. <br /> Our classrooms are and will change. <br />
  • sometimes it&#x2019;s a world renown Physic teacher from MIT <br />
  • sometimes it&#x2019;s a 10 years old boy from England who figured out how to use green screen in Windows Movie Maker <br /> <br /> Oh, and you can carry this in your pocket as well. <br />
  • We&#x2019;ve been talking about life long learning and making school more relevant for years, we can&#x2019;t wait to make it a reality any longer. Not just about technology but it&#x2019;s once again pushing us. <br /> School still plays a huge role but if we hold it to the esteem its hand, we&#x2019;ll have a very difficult time helping kids become life long learners. <br />

  • Personal PD 40% From June 4 to June 18 you will develop a personal PD plan. This plan includes viewing a minimum of 20 hours of educational content including at least 3 live events . You'll develop a page that includes a brief synopsis of each event as well as recommendation of 5-8 events centered around a theme. This theme can be as broad as "school reform" or "storytelling" or revolve around a specific subject area "math". You'll provide discussion questions and ideas for utilizing the content for other educators. OR What do you Want to Learn? 40% Based on the one thing you want to learn, I'll provide you with one or two people to connect with. Through a process of reading, commenting and searching, you'll build a comprehensive list of resources and ideas that will support you in your quest. Your page will consist of resources, people, videos, etc and a summation of how you connected and found the various content and the degree to which you have achieved what you set out to learn.
