I think we need to start by deciding what we want education to look like. Please comment on the following questions:
These questions were posed by Chris Lehmann in a session at CMTC10 titled "Thinking Out Loud". As part of the discussion, he asked participants how blog posts are different from your private journals and summarized the ensuing discussion by stating that blogging publically takes you out of the realm of people into the world of ideas.
We need concrete ideas to move forward with educational change. The ideas, publicity and push for change need to come from us, the teachers and administrators who truly care about what is happening in our schools. Please help jump start this effort by adding your answers to the above questions. If we cannot verbalize what we want the system to look like, how can we expect to get the change that we want.
Chris Lehmann challenged those of us that attended the break-out session to do something to get the changes started by working within our zone of control and then pushing outward. LET'S DO IT!!
