2 I Am Not An Expert! I am not smarter than you….. I have a different job……. I do not have all the answers……

3 The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not found, but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination. --John Schaar

5 Schools are Improving School Improvement Changing World

6 The one size fits all school that took its present shape in the 1930s was a poor fit with the reality even then. In the twenty first century, it belongs in our romantic memories of once upon a time. John I. Goodlad

10 The Emergence of Multiple e-Dentity Disorder Find All of Me Online Photo credit : Amber Mayhem "The concept of an 'average American' is gone, forever.

11 Ideals not Norms

12 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.

13 EPIC WIN

14 Against all odds you create breakthrough.

15 Systems are challenged today like never before and the key challenge that we face is results.

16 In an environment driven by results, the best strategy is to DEVELOP YOUR PEOPLE. Broaden the definition of learning in your system to include adults.

17 The focus must be on the way we work. –Cooperation is what was valued in the past. It is about efficiency: You do this and I will do that. –Collaboration is where we should focus. It is about shared creation and shared solutions, in which the focus is not on the process but on the specific results, and everyone in the system has responsibility for the results.

18 Making a better 20 th Century School is not the answer.

19 The Boston Globe Ray, reading the paper on your Kindle or online just isnt the same!

20 Almost everyone wants schools to be better, but almost no one wants them to be different.

54 "You don't have to change the student population to get results; you simply have to change the conditions under which they learn." - Pedro Noguera

55 Education If you are focused on seat time you are focused on the wrong end of the student.

56 Education The education industry thinks technology adds cost; all other industries use technology to drive down costs.

57 Education Education does everything that it always has and then bolts on technology, which is where the added cost comes from. Other industries use technology to change the way they do things, which is where the cost savings comes from.

58 Kids Today Learn anywhere, anytime, with and from anyone Always on, always connected, expecting collaboration Need to be engaged and involved Demand personalized learning experiences

73 Intentionally Non-Compliant Child

74 The Fundamental Attribution Error When looking at our own behavior, we tend to view the situation in the environment that surrounds our action. When looking at the behavior of others, we make assumptions about their personal qualities.

75 The Effects of Praise Fixed or Growth Cant hand confidence to learners on a silver platter.

76 We live in a world obsessed with predictability and control, some people believe that if we cant truly measure something it must not matter. We must consider the possibility that if we cant truly measure something, it may be the most important thing.

77 Talking with kids… Its not us against them!
