  4. 4. BELIEFS/ PHILOSOPHY YOUR QUESTIONS TACTICS
  5. 5. TACTICS ARE COMMODITIZED  Definition of COMMODITIZE  commoditized; commoditizing  transitive verb  COMMODIFY commoditizing bandwith; specifically : to render (a good or service) widely available and interchangeable with one provided by another company

  9. 9. OUR OWN HYPOCRISY
  10. 10.  Time  Late to meetings  Frustrated when partner sleeps in or wants to get started too early  Schedule meetings at our convenience even if potentially too early or too late for others without clear rationale  Diet  How much do you wish you could tell people whether they can or cannot eat gluten?  How frustrating is it when you do not control the menu or restaurant selection? TIME AND DIET
  11. 11.  Security  Gun debate  Locking doors vs. not locking doors  Finances  I can spend 150 dollars on drinks with buddies, but my wife should not buy a new pair of shoes  When, what, and how much to invest SECURITY AND FINANCES
  12. 12. CONTROL IN SCHOOLS  EVERYTHING, but we are starting to fight it  Bells herd kids to class  They sit in rows  Most classes have one correct answer or goal  Time is fixed, learning is variable  Assignments look more like recipes than creative expressions  We ban tools that define our ‘real world’  Use grades as weapons  Ignore what we know are appropriate practices because logistics get in the way  Do not adapt curriculum as the world changes  Content area experts that are not well versed in learning
  13. 13. THINK ABOUT THIS  Who decreed to achieve a ‘Carnegie Unit’ (credit) a student should spend around 90 days in a class  Who decreed that someone must be 18 years old to be successful in college or career  Who decreed 50 minutes per class was the appropriate amount of time  Who decreed that all learners should be grouped with their age group in spite of ability
  14. 14. FLIES IN THE FACE OF RESEARCH ON MOTIVATION
  15. 15. SO, WHAT IS THE POINT?  School is very good for the adults  School is very good at logistics  School is very good at being efficient  School is very good at teaching compliance  School is not very good at creating leaders and critical thinkers  School is not very good at change  School is not very good at ‘selling’ itself to the consumer
  16. 16. THINK OF IT THIS WAY . . .  If we were to invent it . . .
  17. 17. TACTICS ARE COMMODOTIZED

  23. 23. DIFFERENTIATION DOES NOT JUST OCCUR
  24. 24. START WITH THE PHYSICAL SPACE
  25. 25. QUESTIONS ARE NOT VERBAL PAUSES
  26. 26. LEARNING BOUND BY FOUR WALLS
  27. 27. When we care about something deeply, we find a way – not an excuse MAKE THE SYSTEM WORK FOR YOU
  28. 28. WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO GET FIRED FOR?
  29. 29. CAN SCHOOL LOOK LIKE IT DOES TODAY IN 2027?  That is your courage  That is your moral imperative
