I typically listen to Craig Norris on CBC KW 89.1 on my morning drive into the office and yesterday was no different. I happened to catch an interview Craig did with Roger Farwell, the new CEO of Creative Enterprise Inc.
What caught my attention in the interview was the idea of one’s “change stance”. In a time of rapid change you can sit back and see what happens OR actively ‘play in the space’ to position yourself for the best possible outcome.
Lets apply this notion to education. This is a time of rapid change in many areas of the K12 environment.
- instructional practice: facilitated, inquiry based, PBL, collaborative etc.
- assessment practices
- technology enabled learning
- owning your own professional learning
- making your thinking visible
- technology trends
- bring your own devices (BYOD)
Summer reflection challenge: What will your approach be to educational change? Will you sit back and see what happens OR actively ‘play in the space’ to position yourself for the best possible outcome?
