  5. 5. Mantra for today’s keynote… We are stronger together than apart. None of us is as smart, creative, good or interesting as all of us.
  6. 6. • THE CONNECTED EDUCATOR Things do not change; we change. —Henry David Thoreau What are you doing to contextualize and mobilize what you are learning? Try taking collaborative notes in the back channel chat. How will you leverage, how will you enable your teachers, your leadership or your students to leverage- collective intelligence?
  7. 7. The world is changing... But schools… not so much.
  8. 8. What is ….
  9. 9. We have to change school culture… -- change behaviors -- experience success -- creates faith -- creates hope -- changes beliefs, values, dispositions From: Azhar Sent: 2013-10- 04 11:03 AM To: Daddy Subject: Our teacher fell asleep
  10. 10. Learner First— Educator Second It is a shift and requires us to rethink who we are as an educational leader or professional. It requires us to redefine ourselves.
  11. 11. Slide credit to Alec Couros
  12. 12. Or are you a Connected Educator?
  13. 13. Letting Go of Curriculum
  14. 14. Students are Individuals 1. Children are persons and should be treated as individuals as they are introduced to the variety and richness of the world in which they live. 2. Children are not something to be molded and pruned. Their value is in who they are – not who they will become. They simply need to grow in knowledge. 3. Think of the self-directed learning a child does from birth to three– most of it without language. As they mature they are even more capable of being self-directed learners. .
  15. 15. Eight strands of technology and TSIP • Content driven • Memorization • Tested • Standards Aligned
  16. 16. But as long as I kept it learner driven and based on what both adults and kids were interested in things went fine.
  17. 17. “Content is just the context for participation. It’s not the outcome. It’s one of our design constraints. What we care about is kids’ engagement, the challenges they’re trying to solve, and how complex those problems are.” ~ Katie Salen Then it hit me… Content wasn’t the focus. Context was… and using the technology as a paint brush or a canvas that connected to the child’s wonderment changed everything. I became an insatiable learner.

  19. 19. 22 Free range learners Free-range learners choose how and what they learn. Self- service is less expensive and more timely than the alternative. Informal learning has no need for the busywork, chrome, and bureaucracy that accompany typical classroom instruction.
  20. 20. Shifts focus of literacy from individual expression to community involvement.
  21. 21. • THE CONNECTED EDUCATOR The Disconnect “Every time I go to school, I have to power down.” --a high school student
  22. 22. Shifts focus of literacy from individual expression to community involvement.
  23. 23. Connected Learning The computer connects the student to the rest of the world Learning occurs through connections with other learners Learning is based on conversation and interaction Stephen Downes
  24. 24. Share Cooperate Collaborate Collective Action According to Clay Shirky, there are four steps on a ladder to mastering the connected world: sharing, cooperating, collaborating, and collective action. From his book- “Here Comes Everybody”
  25. 25. Connected Learner Scale Share (Publish & Participate) – Connect (Comment and Cooperate) – Remixing (building on the ideas of others) – Collaborate (Co-construction of knowledge and meaning) – Collective Action (Social Justice, Activism, Service Learning) –
  26. 26. Connected Learning has the potential to takes us deeper “The interconnected, interactive nature of social learning exponentially amplifies the rate at which critical content can be shared and questions can be answered.” From: Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age in The Chronicle of Higher Education Cathy Davidson, professor at Duke University
  27. 27. Connected sometimes trumps F2F with deep learning… Via Marc Andreessen’s blog, the findings of researchers as related by Frans Johansson in The Medici Effect:
  28. 28. Diversity of thought Allows for Greater Innovation Frans Johansson explores one simple yet profound insight about innovation: in the intersection of different fields, disciplines and cultures, there’s an abundance of extraordinary new ideas to be explored.

  33. 33. Internet of Things & Services • The Internet of Things is a technological system, a suite of products and services that will make life a bit more comfortable. • It is more than the Internet we know — it goes beyond empowering people to communicate and collaborate. • The Internet of Things can connect any product or service. And it automatically links what might emerge as a result of this collaboration — interact even without human intervention.
  34. 34. Recap… 1. The world is changing. 2. The context has shifted 3. We have amazing tools that enable us to connected, collaborate and create. 4. Kids are social learners who are interested in the world around them. We are in the midst of seeing education transform from a book-based, linear system with a focus on individual achievement to an web-based, divergent system with a focus on collaborative learning.
  35. 35. Change is hard
  36. 36. Connected learners are more effective change agents
  37. 37. Real Question is this: Are we willing to change- to risk change- to meet the needs of the precious folks we serve? Can you accept that Change (with a “big” C) is sometimes a messy process and that learning new things together is going to require some tolerance for ambiguity.
  38. 38. Let’s just admit it… You are an agent of change! Now. Always. And now you have the tools to leverage your ideas.
  39. 39. An effective change agent is someone who isn’t afraid to change course.
