  43. Individualized Learning Plans “The question now facing schools is this: Can the system of schooling design to process groups of students in standardized ways in a monolithic instructional mode be adapted to handle differences in the way individual brains are wired for learning?” Christensen, et. al
  44. Individualized Learning Plans ✤ Differentiation ✤ Customization ✤ “All students have Special Learning Needs” ✤ All teachers are trapped by their own learning strengths

  48. I think things are moving way too slowly. We've been talking about all this for so long. Why am I still seeing traditional schools stuck in traditional practices, slipping further and farther away from the realities and advances happening elsewhere outside the school building?
  49. Tear Down the Walls...
  50. Expectation ✤ "The main thing is the way society puts younger people in a box and nobody expects much of them. I am struck by how much people my age can actually achieve if only they could think beyond football and high school and what they are told is possible... This just shows they can do a lot more with some strong ambition and desire. My [advice] is to get out there and do your thing with all you got." Zac Sunderland

  54. The Future... it’s already here... “[Our goal is to] shift the focus of the conversation about the digital divide from questions of technological access to those of opportunities to participate and to develop the cultural competencies and social skills needed for full involvement.” —Henry Jenkins
  55. Let’s Review! 1. Walls of the School = Make Learning Purposeful and Authentic (like RL) 2. Walls of the Classroom = Allow for collaboration and participatory culture 3. Walls of the Teacher = Change to facillitator to support Individual Learning Plans 4. Walls of the “Imaginary” = Rattle the Cage... We want Tomorrow, TODAY!
  56. Thank You!
