We talked about the following topics: What does empowering students and developing learner agency look like, What are some tangible strategies that move us in this direction, and what are some examples and models of where this has worked.

Are your children's classes Dangerously Irrelevant (and what you can do about it) Led by Scott McLeod

Questions discussed:
  • How are schools shifting, or resisting the shift, from an industrial model to a global, innovation model?
  • How are teachers and schools making that shift? What's working?
  • What can we all, as parents, teachers, administrators, voters, or policy makers, do to help?
Here is a link to Scott's slides.

Friday Institute Session 1

Leading Personalized and Digital Learning: Change Management and Distributed Leadership
Led by Nancy Mangum, Shayla Rexrode, and Mary Ann Wolf

Leading a transition to personalized and digital learning requires school leaders who are able to set a vision for this change and establish a culture that supports this vision. We will be leading you in discussions on the following topics:
  • What are the change management strategies that work or don't work in schools?
  • How do you craft a vision and a culture that supports that vision?
  • What team dynamics lead to successful educational change?
  • What stories do you all bring of successful and unsuccessful implementation, and what can we learn from them?
Here are the slides.
