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 Learning is the work for everyone. - Michael Fullan

5 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

8 General Thoughts

9 Educators need to become the agents of change.

10 Education exists in the larger context of society.

11 When society changes – so too must education if it is to remain viable!

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

13 There are some challenges when I say change.

14 We need fewer, clearer and more rigorous standards!

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

21 Think about how the education system generally behaves…

22 We need more artists, so heres our plan. REQUIRE ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO TAKE MORE ART!

23 We need more scientists and mathematicians, so heres our plan. REQUIRE ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO TAKE MORE MATH AND SCIENCE!

24 What Works Best? REQUIRE MANDATE FORCE EXCITE CREATE PASSION MOTIVATE

25 Motivation is a key ingredient for success in learning.

26 Talking with kids… Its not us against them!

27

28 CULTURE TRUMPS STRATEGY

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

30 Standardized Assessment Necessary but NOT SUFFICIENT

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

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

33 SUCCESS BY DESIGN NOT BY CHANCE

34 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.

35 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

36 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

37 21 st Century Learners

38 The Internet has created the greatest generation gap since the advent of rock and roll.

39

40 What does the net generation expect from us based on their lifetime experiences with technology?

41 This Generation… Teenagers surveyed… Use MySpace and Face Book use texting instead of (parents) nearly 60% would rather use than a telephone are likely to have 6 applications running at once on their PC

42 This Generation… 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 …

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

44 Conceptual Age

45

46

47 Agricultural Age… Farmers Industrial Age… Factory Worker Informational Age… Knowledge Worker Conceptual Age… Creator / Empathizer / Innovator

48 Three reasons for this… Abundance Asia Automation

49 #1 Abundance Malls, Target, PetsMart, Best Buy, Homes, Cars Self Storage Trash …. USA spends more on trash bags than 90 countries spend on everything

50 Abundance has produced an ironic result… Lessened the significance of things because you can get it anywhere. (no longer enough to create a product thats reasonably priced and functional) Products must be more R – Directed beautiful, unique, meaningful, aesthetic imperative

51 Abundance Elevates R – Directed Thinking Electric lighting was rare a century ago… Today it is commonplace and abundant. Yet…. Candles who needs them anymore? $2.4 billion business a year

52 #2 ASIA Knowledge workers new competition.. India, Philippines, China Programmers 70k – 80k are paid what a Taco Bell worker makes Chip designers 7k in USA …..1K in India Aerospace Engineers USA 6K… $650 in Russia Accountant USA 5K… $300 in Philippines

53 Savings Rate 1. India -- 25% 2. Japan -- 28% 3. Korea -- 30% 4. China -- 50% 5. United States -- (-4%)*

54 2007 – World Economic Leaders 1. United States 2. Japan 3. England 4. Germany Source: Goldman Sacks

55 2040 – World Economic Leaders 1. China 2. India 3. United States 4. Mexico 5. Russia 6. Brazil 7. Germany 8. England Source: Goldman Sacks

56 #3 Automation Last century machines proved they could replace human backs This century new technologies are proving they can replace human left brains Any job that depends on routines is at risk. Automation is changing even doctors work. Outsource.com

57 Left hemisphere is sequential, logical and analytical. The Left powered the Information Age. Still necessary, but no longer sufficient. Right hemisphere is non linear, intuitive and holistic. The Right qualities of inventiveness, empathy, joyfulness and meaning will power the Conceptual Age.

58 A new age valuing…. High Concept: the capacity to detect patterns / opportunities to create, to be artistic / emotional beauty and to combine seemingly unrelated ideas into something new. High Touch: involves the ability to empathize with others, understand the subtleties of human interaction to find joy and elicit it in others

59 High Concept / High Touch GMs top leader… I see us being in the art business. MBAs becoming the blue collar workers for the conceptual age. Graphic designers have increased ten fold in the last decade. Since 1970, 30% more people are earning a living as writers. More Americans today work in art, entertainment and design than as lawyers, accountants and auditors.

60 The future belongs to a very different kind of mind.. Creators and empathizers Pattern recognizers Meaning makers And more……….

63 Theme Change, Creativity and Innovation

64 THE IMPLEMENTATION DIP…. THE POSSIBILITY CURVE.. Fullan

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

66 BANKING Sears IBM Xerox

67 A Story…. Not a bad idea, but to earn a grade more than a C+, the idea has to be viable! (Yale Professor) Fredrick Smith The idea FedEx

68 -Shurnyu Suzuki In the beginners mind there are many possibilities; in the experts mind there are few.

76 R X R X R = LCWRS Relationships X Relevance X Rigor = Life, College, Work Ready Students

77 You cant teach kids you dont know….

78 Participation Gap Self-Worth: Self-Worth occurs when students know they are valued members of the community; have a person they can trust; believe they can achieve. Active Engagement: Active Engagement happens when students are deeply involved in the learning process. Purpose: Purpose exists when students take responsibility for who and what they want to become.

84 Rigor and Relevance is NOT a new add –on !! Rigor and Relevance is a Philosophy of Teaching !!

85 Rigor and Relevance What is it? And what does it mean?

86 Define Rigor and Relevance

87 3 Mis-Conceptions on Rigor 1.That rigor means more 2.Raising a grade is not rigor 3. Being stricter and enforcing tighter policies

88 Rigor ! Rigor means increasing the level of thinking in a more sophisticated and complex manner.

89 Knowledge Taxonomy 1. Recall Knowledge 2. Comprehension 3. Application 4. Analysis 5. Synthesis 6. Evaluation

90 Assimilation of knowledge Acquisition Thinking Continuum

91 Knowledge Taxonomy Awareness Level Recall specific information list, arrange, underline, identify List the four basic math functions Comprehension Level Understand / interpret information define, explain, calculate, reword Select the correct math function to solve a word problem.

92 Knowledge Taxonomy Application level Applying knowledge and understanding to a new situation solve, operate, use, handle, apply Using a ruler, determine the square footage of the floor in this room. Analysis Level Separate a complex idea into its components categorize, simplify, examine, survey Which Microsoft Office program was used to create this presentation?

93 Knowledge Taxonomy Synthesis Level Combining knowledge to form a new idea. create, build, generate, reorganize Write a manual for using a new power tool. Evaluation Level Choosing an alternative in making a decision. decide, classify, judge, prioritize Which salesperson provided the best customer service? Why?

94 Relevance To determine a lessons Relevance you must ask the following questions… 1.Is it an application? 2. Is it real world? 3. Is it unpredictable?

95 Application Model

96 1 Knowledge of one discipline 2 Application within discipline 3 Application across disciplines 4 Application to real-world predictable situations 5 Application to real-world unpredictable situations

97 Acquisition of knowledge Application of knowledge Action Continuum Relevance of learning to life and work

98 Application Model Knowledge within a Course Learning Knowledge, Attitude, or Skills Learning how to use a calculator Apply Knowledge within Discipline Using the knowledge, attitude, or skills within the course curriculum Using the calculator to determine the material costs of a storage shed

99 Application Model Apply Across Disciplines Using the knowledge, attitude, or skills in all discipline curriculums Using the rules of spelling, grammar, punctuation learned in English in all classes Apply to Predictable Situations Use information to analyze and solve real world problems with predictable solutions Read a recipe and calculate the ingredients needed to triple the recipe

100 Application Model Apply to Unpredictable Situations Using information to analyze and solve real problems with unknown solutions Plan the transportation and lodging for your familys vacation to Disney World Plan a luncheon for students being inducted into the National Honor Society and their parents
