Guest Post | Three Starting Points for Thinking Differently About Learning - NYTimes.com - 2 views

  •  
    "It is a different time for teaching and learning. The unfortunate reality is that much of what we do in schools and in our own teaching practice is still grounded in thinking that has ruled the day for more than a century. "

    So what can we be sure of? Well, we can be sure that abundance brings a host of opportunities for learning, and we can be sure that if we are going to make sense of those opportunities in ways that benefit our students, we're going to have to unlearn and relearn much of our own practice.

In short, it's time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, I collaborated with two of my colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea we're calling the school library learning commons."

10 reasons your educators (or employees) are resisting your change initiative | Dangero... - 5 views

  •  
    "Those resisters and naysayers in your school organization (or corporation or nonprofit or …)? You know, the ones that are pushing back against your change initiative? The ones that you like to complain about because 'the train is moving' and they're not 'getting on board?' What if they're right?"
  •  
    There will always be those who are resistant to change. Having "the blessings" of our administrators confirms their support in any new initiative.
