    Nice photos Mike. We all look like we were working hard and doing some good thinking. It was nice to see the other groups in action!
  •  
    Thanks for sharing. We look great - and according to one of my breakout groups, we would look even better in Rowland fleeces (although some preferred hoodies).
  •  
    Keep the digital records coming! I think the video you are taking could become a powerful tool of communication and transformation!

A school's self-guided improvements - 0 views

  •  
    "...some of the most innovative thinking is not coming from above, but from the ground level, where the action is. Teachers and students in local schools are making their own plans on how to meet these demands and tie efforts together to improve student learning. The laboratory is the school itself, and the benefactor supporting the research is Vermont's own Rowland Foundation."

The Millennials - 0 views

  •  
    This is the slideshow from my session at the 2012 Rowland Conference on School Transformation at UVM. Even with the minimalist zen presentation style, there are still some concepts, quotes & statistics which may be useful if you're making the case for change at your school.

Authentic Assessment - 1 views

  •  
    Charlie MacFadyen & Robin Fawcett, two very talented colleagues, gave this presentation at the CVU School Transformation in 2010 with support from the Rowland Foundation. While you need Charlie & Robin to get the full effect, the slides alone provide one of the best explanations of authentic assessment I know of. It's also a terrific example of "zen presentation".

ISTE 2012 Attendees | Program | Search Results Details - 2 views

  •  
    Keynote at ISTE 2012.  Here is a video of YongZhao's presentation.  He was a wonderful speaker, very engaging and funny, but with a clear and serious message.  There is about 15 minutes of intro stuff first, but you can fast forward that if you are short on time.  His talk is about an hour and well worth your time.

    This might be good to share with our own advisory board.  And pizza once a month sounds like a great idea anyway!

    I like this question.  Maybe Amanda or Ann could use it?  Not sure who is teaching digital literacy these days, but maybe they could all team up?  Or the library might have some nice video editing equipment and we could host our own video challenge?

Educational Technology Guy: Khan Academy - not good pedagogy and not #edreform - 2 views

  •  
    Khan as teacher-centered lectures, not student-centered learning.  Still, the videos could support independent learners.

    Although a bit dated, this seems like a great example of the type of library we want to create.  Combine this physical space with inspiring, practical Professional Development and we're going to cook!
