10 What happened to GM..??

11 We have a flawed perspective of always listening to our best customers… They tell us how good the system is working for them!

12 BANKING Sears IBM Xerox

13 What got us to where we are today in education, will not get us to where we need to be!

14 We need fewer, clearer and more rigorous standards! OUR PROBLEM IS NOT SIMPLY STANDARDS, BUTDESIGN AS WELL!!!!

15 THEME Aim of Education

16 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.

17 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

18 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

32 Standardized Assessment Necessary but NOT SUFFICIENT

33 STANDARDIZED TEST SCORES ARE AN ACCURATE MEASURE OF STUDENT LEARNING AND SCHOOL SUCCESS. We behave like………..

34 OUR WORK IS COMPLEX A test score is not a synonym for what a student has learned or a school has accomplished.

35 TO DO THE JOB WELL QUANTITATIVE DATA QUALITATIVE DATA GREAT QUESTIONS…

36 Teacher – Student Comparisons T – I make learning exciting for my students. 86% S – My teachers make learning fun. 41%

37 Teacher – Student Comparisons T – I am aware of my students interests outside of school. 84% S – My teachers know my interests outside of school. 28%
