Moving Forward - 65 views

  • So with all of this confusion, many ask why it is hard for people to accept change.  
  •  The problem with this is that people are more comfortable with what they know and have experienced, as opposed to what “could be”.  The other issue here is that if we cannot clearly articulate examples of powerful learning, why would anyone buy “change” in the first place?
  • It is clear to the world that something just isn’t working with institutional education and most people say that we need to CHANGE institutional education. But to the educators of the world, I am here today to say that I disagree. You don’t need to change anything,  you simply need to understand that the world is changing, and if you don’t change with it, the world will decide that it doesn’t need you anymore.

  • New is nice, but ONLY if it is better.  
  • Leaders need to continuously articulate why a new initiative has made its way into schools, and should be ready to answer the tough questions.
  • if we really want to push education forward, different groups are really going to have to start coming together and putting plans into action.  This doesn’t make me “anti” anything, but I am definitely “pro-kids”.  That is what this is all about.
    Great piece on educational jargon and the need for specificity in focusing our change efforts to move forward.
