2 The Boston Globe Ray, reading the paper on your Kindle just isnt the same!

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

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

5 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%

6 We have been the OBJECTS of change for an extended period of time now.

7 WE need to become the AGENTS of change.

8 Stop waiting for the cure … EDUCATORS - YOU ARE THE CURE!!!

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

10 So whats stopping us? How do we get ahead?

11 THEMES The Challenge We Face Best Practices, Next Practices and Innovation Empowerment Closing Thoughts

12 THEME The Challenge We Face

13 Schools are Improving School Improvement

14 Schools are Improving School Improvement Changing World

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

16 In many cases, our efforts to transform education look much like the original system.

17 Why is it so hard to change? The more successful a system is, the more difficult it is to recognize when it must change. By example, market leaders are the last ones to transform. The American Education System, The market leader during the industrial era!

18 Market Leader Thinking Dominant logic: Thats the way we do things here.

19 We need to stop looking at threats and opportunities that we face through our dominant logic!

20 In the years ahead the forgetting curve may be more important than the learning curve! C.K. Prahalad

21 It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. HAVE WE ADAPTED?

22 Mental Locks We dont need to be creative for most of what we do (driving, shopping, business of living). So staying on routine thought paths enables us to do many things without having to think about it. Our training in school life has taught us that there is one right answer.

23 The Right Answer

24 The Second Right Answer What is the answer? What are the answers? What is the meaning of this? What are the meanings? What is the result? What are the results?

49 Expertise can sometimes be a road block to problem solving and the development of Next Practices. Experts see their points as critical to resolution, without sometimes valuing the thinking of others.

55 NEXT PRACTICE THINKING The Iterative Process Versions Create a disciplined, managed space for development of new ways to accomplish difficult tasks

56 THEME Empowerment

57 Successful leadership is only self- maintaining in a system through the empowerment of everyone, creating leadership density.

58 Sustainability is about the relationship between people, their purpose and their place.

59 Developing teachers and students capacities to lead is clearly important in a system.

60 Empowerment is a soft word, can you measure it?

61 Why good spreadsheets make bad strategies. We live in a world obsessed with science, predictability and control. If we cant measure it, it doesnt count!

62 Sales

63 We must consider the possibility that if we cant measure something, it might be the very most important thing!

69 69 Empowering the students Day of Pink: A day to stand against bullying, harassment, and discrimination

70 Period 1 Day of Pink is a day of action, born when a youth in a high school in Cambridge, Nova Scotia, was bullied because he wore a pink shirt to school. His fellow students decided to stand up to bullying; and hundreds of students came to school wearing pink to show support for diversity and stopping discrimination. What do you feel makes you different or unique? Have you ever felt this puts you at risk for being bullied or harassed?

75 The system is not to blame, we are, for not adapting it to our ever changing world.

76 I cant imagine anything worse than looking back at the opportunity before us in education and thinking we blew it!
