  26. 26. Spending most of your time in your area of weakness—while it will improve your skills, perhaps to a level of “average”—will NOT produce excellence<br />This approach does NOT tap into motivation or lead to engagement<br />The biggest challenge facing us as leaders: how to engage the hearts and minds of the learners<br />

  41. 41. 37<br />Free range learners<br />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.<br />

  46. 46. Community is the New Professional Development <br />Cochran-Smith and Lytle (1999a) describe three ways of knowing and constructing knowledge that align closely with PLP&apos;s philosophy and are worth mentioning here. Knowledge for Practice is often reflected in traditional PD efforts when a trainer shares with teachers information produced by educational researchers. This knowledge presumes a commonly accepted degree of correctness about what is being shared. The learner is typically passive in this kind of &quot;sit and get&quot; experience. This kind of knowledge is difficult for teachers to transfer to classrooms without support and follow through. After a workshop, much of what was useful gets lost in the daily grind, pressures and isolation of teaching. <br />Knowledge in Practice recognizes the importance of teacher experience and practical knowledge in improving classroom practice. As a teacher tests out new strategies and assimilates them into teaching routines they construct knowledge in practice. They learn by doing. This knowledge is strengthened when teachers reflect and share with one another lessons learned during specific teaching sessions and describe the tacit knowledge embedded in their experiences. <br />
  47. 47. Community is the New Professional Development <br />Knowledge of Practice believes that systematic inquiry where teachers create knowledge as they focus on raising questions about and systematically studying their own classroom teaching practices collaboratively, allows educators to construct knowledge of practice in ways that move beyond the basics of classroom practice to a more systemic view of learning.<br />Ibelieve that by attending to the development of knowledge for, in and of practice, we can enhance professional growth that leads to real change. <br />Cochran-Smith, M., & Lytle, S.L. (1999a). Relationships of knowledge and practice: Teaching learning in communities. Review of Research in Education, 24, 249-305. <br />
  48. 48. Professional Learning Communities<br />The driving engine of the collaborative culture of a PLC is the team. They work together in an ongoing effort to discover best practices and to expand their professional expertise. <br />PLCs are our best hope for reculturing schools. We want to focus on shifting from a culture of teacher isolation to a culture of deep and meaningful collaboration.<br />FOCUS: Local , F2F, Job-embedded- in Real Time<br />
  49. 49. Communities of Practice<br />FOCUS: Situated, Synchronous, Asynchronous- Online and Walled Garden<br />

  52. 52. Personal Learning Networks<br />FOCUS: Individual, Connecting to Learning Objects, Resources and People – Social Network Driven<br />
  53. 53. Change is inevitable: Growth is Optional<br />Change produces tension- out of our comfort zone.<br />“Creative tension- the force that comes into play at the moment we acknowledge our vision is at odds with the current reality.” Senge<br />
  54. 54. 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. <br />
