A Principal's Reflections: The Limitations of Being a Disconnected Nomad - 8 views

  •  
    "It seems like just yesterday that I was a disconnected nomad working hard to maintain the status quo and conform to a rigid system commonly known as education. You see, prior to 2009 I was adamantly opposed to even the thought of using social media for both personal and professional reasons. As a building level leader burdened by endless responsibilities, I could not fathom wasting even a precious minute in what I saw as a perpetual time sap. " Read the rest of this post to see how Eric discovered being connected on social media and engaging in conversations with passionate educators has transformed his work in education.

  •  
    "An infopic is a photo with text layered on top that is designed to communicate a message. The message might be a summary, quote, definition, notes, data, weblink, hashtag, or other informational tidbits. The information might come from a conference, workshop, activity, lesson, video, book, a conversation, etc. Your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Google Plus are great places to share infopics." Tony shares how to create infopic in a great video. He is an amazing teacher!

Edu Change & Advocacy: Is High School Ready For A Major Makeover? Think 'Yes' In A Big Way - 29 views

  •  
    "As learners, we are sometimes challenged (not often enough fortunately) to think big.  We are able to ask the question 'what if' when looking at a challenge.  We are tasked with redesigning, recreating, reimagining or rethinking the entire thing.  Maybe these are more 22nd century ideas. Well, when it comes to our high school system and overall student experience, here are my suggestions:" (Get ready for some out of the box ideas)

Transformation in Education - 12 views

    "What Is Transformational In Your Educational Vision?

         Part of the challenge in educational reform is that not everyone defines learning or education the same way.  Sure, we all refer to things such as literacy, college and career ready, 21st century skills, etc.  
         However, what is the core purpose of one's education?  Beyond specifics related to employment skills, literacy skills and standards mastery, I offer up this idea: Education is meant to transform one's life.  In other words, education has to dramatically, or even radically, transform the person into a new, improved person that is more emotionally, socially, and intellectually ready for any challenge the world has to offer."

Salman Khan, Transformer | Connected Principals - 57 views

  •  
    See comment #1 by Will Richardson. Need to be so careful when glorifying what on the surface may appear transformational, while under the shiny wrapper it is nothing all that new. These new forms of just in time information delivery are great student supports; no more.

Learning is life.: An attempt at clarifying my thoughts on homework and learning in gen... - 71 views

  •  
    An interesting blog post from educator & parent on homework and learning in general. What do you think about it, as a teacher,j administraotr & a parent?
  •  
    I really liked this post. As an educator I do not feel that giving kids "busy work" at home is a productive way to get them to learn a concept. I don't think that any of us would want to have to complete "busy work" after we are done working a full day either.
