Scaling Up: System Wide Transformation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Alan November challenges us to give students the opportunity to proclaim "stand on our shoulders” by doing work that is valued by others and that peers can build on to transform the world. In promoting “stand on our shoulders” work in your school or district, you want to move from pockets of innovation to sustained innovation.
Hear strategies to use in your search for the Holy Grail—Scaling Up:
• Promote a framework that emphasizes providing students the opportunity to do transformative work (what is transformative work and how does it create a sense of ownership among students);
• Strengthen professional learning networks with an emphasis on teacher-leadership and looking at student work;
• Implement policies that promote digital citizenship rather than just focusing on restricting users [encourage students to bring cell phones & other devices to school for learning, decrease restrictions on access to the internet (including YouTube, Twitter, & Facebook), and remove policy barriers to display of student work & photos on the web]; and
• Provide anytime/anywhere access to the resources of your network through a bring-your-own-technology initiative and a private cloud.
