  • Cover of folder\nIntroduction-\n
  • People I’m working with now that are already interested:\nMSU-CI\nU of WG- Dr. Craig Mertler\nDr Tim Best of The Ohio St University and Wexpro consulting\nThe MI Dept of Edu.\nPossibility is endless for others\n\n \n
  • I am hoping today I leave you with 2 things:\n1- you question our educational system and what it provides for our kids here in the county\n2- a desire to join me in this quest to better our community through empowering our youth\n\n
  • you are all \n\n\n\n

  • have them look for the capital of turkey\nand its greatest export\ndifferent from 20 years ago- but not different in schools\nthe more information we know- the more we don't know\n\n
  • \n
  • divergent thinking\ncreative ideas \nexploring more than one solution\ncuriosity/willing to take risks\n\n
  • \n
  • professional learning community\n\n
  • \n
  • Dr. Benjamin Bloom 1950‘s created this taxonomy of thinking paradigms... \nHe found that 95% of test questions given to our students were recall knowledge- lowest level\nDefine, list, label\nits 2011 - has this changed? NO\n\nMajority of classrooms do not go beyond Knowledge and Understand-\nIf you get the “fun” teacher or “good” teacher you may get to apply your knowledge and possibly analyze the data you receive.\nThe GC GLH will provide a learning environment that encompasses all thinking skills but will have its main focus on the top of the taxonomy\n
  • Students entering schools next year will retire in the year 2071\nwe have no idea what 2071 will look like (we don't know what five years will look like)\n- yet we are educating to prepare them for their careers \nwe all are born with creativity- but we are educated out of it- in 2071- we will need to be as creative as we ever were\n\n

  • MSU study-\nemployers most important characteristics of hires-\nresourcefulness and adaptability\n
  • tech at GC GLH-\n1:1 computing\nstudents will be able to learn 24/7 and contact other learners through a variety of mediums\n\n
  • automate vs informate\ntechnology is the vehicle not the destination\n

  • idea for 3-4 years\ntalking with my brother or wife coffee etc...\nlast summer started sharing the idea with family and friends\nover the course of this past year it has transformed to a vision- something I can see\nmy time in Boston and Philadelphia along with my trip to China has pushed me to begin making it a reality\n\n
