Professional Generosity in Action

  1. 1. PROFESSIONAL GENEROSITY IN ACTION LUCY GRAY
  2. 2. –David Potter (iEARN) “…the Global Education Conference community is organized around people rather than tech or content. Although happiness is definitely part of the community, the better description might be that the community is focused on ‘optimizing for professional generosity’. Professional generosity drives Twitter chats, from #edchat to #kinderchat, as well as community like Steve’s Classroom 2.0, Edmodo, and most online educator communities. It acts as the antithesis of the outcompete- the-world, zero-sum message US educational system promotes at all levels. Steve and Lucy have a bootstrapped community built for an ‘infinite runway’ for teaching and learning, rather than quick success or quick failure. Although it may not seem like a community that will garner much attention from super angels, Lucy and Steve’s 365/24/7 “anytime, anywhere” global teaching and learning community is the right model— scalable, sustainable, impactful, and with a killer ROI, if you want to wait a generation to measure it.”

  30. 30. –Anne Aherne-Daly (USA) “Every single moment for me has been magical. It is almost impossible to pick one. The presenters have all been wonderful, but it is the discussions from the participants that make each session exciting as people bring their different view points to the presentation, offer additional insights and information to the discussion and arrange to meet up (online) and collaborate together. It is the personal global interaction and connections that make me stay awake all night (sometimes) or has me wake up at a crazy hour in the morning to connect with an educator from the other side of the world. “
  31. 31. EVERYDAY ACTS OF PROFESSIONAL GENEROSITY
  32. 32. –Donna Adams Román “What would happen if all teachers and educational leaders demonstrated Professional Generosity? What if all school districts did? What if all organizations and industries did? I wonder where the tipping point would be…in my own school, in my district, in my state, in my profession, in my country…in our world. We have the technology. We have the trailblazers. We have living, breathing examples out there doing it. I can easily do my part. All it takes is a little Professional Generosity intention on the out- breath.”
