14 130 Who said that…. “I am not complacent at all john. I have gone through experiences such as this for a very long time. I know I am right. I make the good argument, write the wise articles, and the persuasive letters. And sometimes I feel as though I am preaching to a stack of wood. People do not easily embrace change. Convincing them to turn in a new direction requires a patience and persistence that tax everyone. It does not help matters that the course we are attempting to follow could get us all hanged” Ben Franklin talking to John Adams, June 7, 1776

Huff : Creating new possibilities from unspeakable tragedy On May 22, 2011, the town of Joplin, Mo., lost six schools in an EF5 tornado that killed 160 people and displaced half the student body. Joplin currently has about 3,200 students living in temporary facilities. In spite of these challenges, the district is leading the way in using technology to transform instruction under the guidance of Superintendent C.J.

30 130 Mark Evans Being a tech-savvy superintendent means “always looking down the road,” with an eye toward how technology can help school districts achieve what he calls the “three Cs”: classroom engagement, cost efficiency, and communication.
31 130 Daniel Frazier, superintendent of Iowa’s Sioux Central Community School District, “Show bold leadership.” “We’re talking about fundamentally changing the structure of the 21st-century classroom. That’s a scary proposition that is going to alter the perceptions of our public as to what the classroom [environment] should be,”
32 130 Daniel Frazier Discussed how a one-to-one laptop program for students in grades 3-12 is facilitating an inquiry-based approach to learning in his district. How he has been able to get “100-percent commitment” to implementing technology from his district’s staff by sending them out to other schools to see what successful innovations others were doing.

37 130 What is Transdisciplinary Learning? Learning to know - This is the capability of making connections, adapting to changes and knowing how to learn. Most notably, this refers to the inquiry-based approach to learning such as the scientific process or research and information fluency. Learning to do - transdisciplinary learning is framed in the idea of project-based learning or performance tasks that demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge in a creative manner. Learning to live together - the interconnectedness of the world makes this aspect even more urgent for a need to be able to collaborate on a local and global scale. Learning to be - the life-long journey of self-discovery must be part of the process of learning.
38 130 What is the best way to understand a concept? The best way to understand a concept is to explain or teach it to someone else. “While we teach, we learn,” said the Roman philosopher Seneca. Now scientists are bringing this ancient wisdom up to date, documenting exactly why teaching is such a fruitful way to learn — and designing innovative ways for young people to engage in instruction.

40 130 Mooresville's Mark Edwards named 2013 Superintendent of the Year It’s about changing the culture of instruction — preparing students for their future, not our past.”
41 130 Mooresville's Mark Edwards named 2013 Superintendent of the Year Mooresville’s Shining Example (It’s Not Just About the Laptops) “This is not about the technology,” Mark Edwards, superintendent of Mooresville Graded School District, would tell the visitors later over lunch. “It’s not about the box. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/13/education/mooresville-school-district-a-laptop- success-story.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/13/education/mooresville-school-district-a-laptop- success-story.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
42 130 Karen Cator, director of educational technology for the United States Department of Education. “There are lessons to be learned from Mooresville.”
43 130 “Dr. Edwards! You have to see this!” came their excited reply. Knowing that the students had cut their recess short, Edwards sensed that something seismic was afoot. And indeed, the crew was soon clustered around a laptop computer, eagerly perusing a website that tracks global earthquake activity.
44 130 “What’s important about that,” Edwards continues, “is that our students had access to real-time data, so they were able to make real-time observations. To see kids running in from recess, back to their classroom …that was something I’d never seen before.
45 130 The students were inside monitoring quakes around the world, and had pinpointed tremors in Southeast Asia,” Edwards marvels. “They said ‘we think a big earthquake is going to happen somewhere in the area.’
46 130 About two weeks later, the devastating quake and tsunami struck Japan.” That type of learning — which is possible now that our students have access to powerful technology tools — has brought everyone to a brand new place.”
47 130 How have classrooms changed? Classrooms have moved from lecture to lattice (a framework or structure), where students collaborate in small groups with the teacher swooping in for consultation.
48 130 Thomas Bertrand, superintendent of schools in Rochester, Ill., said he was struck by the “culture of collaboration among staff and kids” in Mooresville
49 130 Mooresville’s laptops perform the same tasks as those in hundreds of other districts: they correct worksheets, assemble progress data for teachers, allow for compelling multimedia lessons, and let students work at their own pace or in groups, rather than all listening to one teacher
50 130 Many students adapted to the overhaul more easily than their teachers, some of whom resented having beloved tools — scripted lectures, printed textbooks and a predictable flow through the curriculum — vanish.
51 130 The difference, teachers and administrators here said, is that they value computers not for the newest content they can deliver — but for how they tap into the oldest of student emotions — curiosity, boredom, embarrassment, anxiety, — and help educators deliver what only people can.
52 130 said, student-Chase Wilson “I’m not a very social person, but I have no problem typing on a keyboard,” one of those shy ones,. “It connected me with other students — opened me up and helped me with talking in public.”
53 130 Federal Department of Education officials cite Mooresville as a symbolic success District’s graduation rate was 91 percent in 2011. National Center for Education Statistics estimated that 78 percent. State tests in reading, math and science, an average of 88 % of students across grades and subjects met proficiency standards
54 130 If the leaders don’t get it, it doesn’t happen….. Scott McLeod Scott McLeod If a teacher gets it, a classroom changes. If a principal gets it, the whole building begins to change. If a superintendent gets it, the whole district begins to change. [And, if state or federal policymakers get it, the statewide or nationwide climate begins to change.] January 20, 2010 http://dangerouslyirrelevant.org/

108 130 Social intelligence – What??? ability to connect to others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions.
109 130 http://giftedthinkers.com/social_intelligence.htm Why should we teach something that students will learn through life experience? Shouldn't this be taught at home rather than school? Is teaching SI wasting time for children who already have high social intelligence? Why is empathy important? How does someone feel who has low social intellligence?

Introduce the problem-solving concept of "We can find a solution that works for everyone." Supervise playdates as closely as required, but as loosely as possible. Keep enforcing the “no-hitting- no-matter-what” rule. Be aware that preschoolers are exploring how power works. Bossiness is often a challenge with preschoolers

127 130 Debunking five myths about PBL ( created by Manor students) Misconceptions 1. PBL is the same as "making something", "hands-on learning" or "doing activity ". 2. PBL isn't standard-based. It focuses on "soft skills" like critical thinking and collaboration, but doesn't teach enough content knowledge and academic skills. 3. PBL takes too much time. 4. PBL is only for older students...or ﬂuent English speakers...or those who don't have learning disabilities.
