2 Identify the essential characteristics of successful schools and the most rapidly improving schools Best Practices/Research to assist schools Organize our learning into useful tools

3 Not an expert Im a learner and I change my opinion based on what I learn.

4 In times of change, learners inherit the Earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. Eric Hoffer, American Social Writer

7 The primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to help them do well in the lives they lead outside of school.

8 Weve created false proxies for learning… Finishing a course or textbook has come to mean achievement Listening to lecture has come to mean understanding Getting a high score on a standardized test has come to mean proficiency

9 Too often students are given answers to remember rather than problems to solve. -Robert Lewin

10 Learning should have its roots in.. Meaning, not just memory Engagement, not simply transmission Inquiry, not only compliance Exploration, not just acquisition Personalization, not simply uniformity Collaboration, not only competition Trust, not fear

19 Were No. 1! We lead the world in prison incarcerations. If only we were No. 1 in education. Tom Carroll, Education Beats Incarceration in Education Week, March 26, 2008 (p. 32) referring to a recent Pew Center study showing that one in every 100 Americans is behind bars; the figure for African-American men between 20 and 34 is one in nine.

81 96% of U.S. students surveyed say school is important to their success, but only 20% believe it is meeting their needs Over 20% of students reported doing Internet research for parent purchases This Generation…

82 The killer application for todays students isnt You Tube, Face Book, My Space, Google, Moodle, Pod-casting or some Wiki-site For digital teens, the one and only killer app is… speed Consider this …

83 This Generation… –The fastest growing segment of computer-users today in the U.S. is 5 to 7 year olds

85 We have to collaborate to get better.

86 How do we teach our children to live and work in this society? Question:

87 Theres no silver bullet!! NO EPIPHANY
