3 21 st Century… Learner? Worker? Citizen?

4 Imagine

5 Rip Van Winkle awakens in the 21st century after a hundred- year snooze and is, of course, utterly bewildered by what he sees.

6 Men and women dash about, talking to small metal devices pinned to their ears.

7 Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on electronic screens

8 Older folk defy death and disability with metronomes in their chests and with knees made of metal and plastic.

9 shopping malls… every place Rip goes just baffles him Airports, hospitals,

10 But when he finally walks into a classroom, the old man knows exactly where he is.

11 "This is a school," he declares. "We used to have these back in Only now the blackboards are white."

15 How do you design for the future when you cant predict tomorrow? If we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." John Dewey

42 The Collaboration Continuum: Building Interdependence Through Partnership Interdependence CooperationCoordinationCollaboration Finding a website or a book for a teacher upon request. Showing a teacher how to use a digital camera or book a laptop cart upon request. Introducing the document cameras to a team when asked. Setting up a learning space with appropriate resources to kick off a unit. Teaching a one-off lesson that fits with the curriculum. Planning a unit to coincide with core curriculum which is independently taught by specialist. Sharing goals Carefully defined roles in the process Comprehensive co-planning Co-planning units that will be team taught. Team-teaching units which authentically embed both curricular goals. Units which are team-taught are co- assessed. Isolation Helping when a question is askedPlanning when a lesson or an activity happens which supports core curriculum a prolonged and interdependent relationship Collaboration has the highest impact on student achievement. Collaboration is 2 (or more) equal partners who create a project or unit of study based on content standards in one or more content areas, a unit that will be team-designed, team- taught, and team-evaluated.
