We invite you to consider how you might speak up a bit more, tell your stories as a teacher, and assert your leadership. On this week's episode of TTT (recorded 5/29/13), we talk about how, when, why, and where to speak up! We discuss how teachers become leaders by loosing fear, speaking up, telling their stories, and taking collective action.

TTT#348 IDEC 2013 - International Democratic Education Conference w/ Sally Anderson, Scott Nine, Joye Otto, David Loitz - 5.8.13

Length: 55s

55:46 minutes (38.29 MB)

On this episode of TTT we have a conversation about democratic education and IDEC 2013, the 21st annual International Democratic Education Conference, which will be held in Boulder, Colorado this August 4-8.

Participants in this episode of TTT are:

What is IDEC?
IDEC 2013 will be a unique international gathering of changemakers—practitioners, organizers, academics, youth, and educators—built around how we can transform our communities, schools, and learning to ensure that all young people can engage meaningfully in their education and gain the tools to build a just, sustainable, and democratic world. The experience will include a rich blend of pre-scheduled events and the fluidity needed to host conversations, workshops and strategy sessions using a hybrid of Open Space Technology. Be prepared for a conference experience unlike any other – we’ll be pushing the boundaries of what we mean by learning, sharing, connecting and creating.
http://www.idec2013.org/about/democraticeducation/
http://www.idec2013.org/registration/

What makes IDEC 2013 remarkable?
IDEC 2013 is a place where the world learns together about learning. IDEC, now in its 21st year, is hosted by teams of educators from different countries and continents each year. This is the first time in ten years that it has been held in the United States. From Korea to Israel and Brazil to India, IDEC offers participants the space, prompts, and process to learn about the future and history of learning.

What is democratic education?
In communities around the world, a story is unfolding of young people, educators, networks, and communities generating solutions to the challenges of today’s complex world. That unfolding story is the story of democratic education.

Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice. It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. It’s a way of gathering together a vast set of ideas, resources, and visions so that a powerful story can be told that reclaims education for people and communities. There are thousands of people and organizations around the globe engaged in democratic education. Many have similar values but different definitions. IDEC 2013 is for all of them.

Another story of +Connected Learning on this episode of TTT.

We are joined by Ed Martinez, +Fred Mindlin, and Dan Spelce to discuss "Forage IV," a pilot program supported in part by NWP's collaboration with the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Literacy Initiative.

Integrating art with environmental education, we support teachers in linking their existing curriculum to a student-led interest-driven project, collaborating with practicing artists.

The Project web site is http://forage.storyreach.com/

We are also joined by Jennifer Woollven, Joel Malley, Scott Shelhart and Kelsey Shelhart.

This is a story for the National Writing Project's Connected Learning Inquiry Group's Session 6 - Connected Learning is Production Centered http://connect.nwp.org/online-learning-connected-learning/p/16923

This story helps us put learning narratives next to this description of connected learning from The Digital Media & Learning Research Hub http://dmlhub.net/ :

Connected learning environments are designed around production, providing tools and opportunities for learners to produce, circulate, curate, and comment on media. Learning that comes from actively creating, making, producing, experimenting, remixing, decoding, and designing, fosters skills and dispositions for lifelong learning and productive contributions to today’s rapidly changing work and political conditions.

This webcast is one in a series that we've been doing recently where we are asking: Where are the classrooms that are doing this well and how do they ensure that the other principles are in place?

Enjoy!

TTT#342 A Conversation with Will Richardson on Why School? Third in a series with NWP's Connected Learning Inquiry Group 3.27.13

On this episode of TTT join Will Richardson @willrich45 to discuss: With teachers and learning everywhere, why do we need schools? This is the third in a series of webcasts done in collaboration with the National Writing Project's Connected Learning Inquiry Group, which is led by Jennifer Woolven @mswollven and Joel Malley @joelmalley.

On this episode of TTT Paul Allison, Monika Hardy, and Chris Sloan are are joined by Jon Barilone, Jennifer Woollven, Will Richardson, Joel Malley, and Kim Douillard.

This is Will Richardson's About page at http://willrichardson.com/about

A parent of two middle school aged children, I’ve been thinking and writing about the intersection of social online learning networks and education for the past 10 years at Weblogg-ed.com, in numerous journals and magazines such as Ed Leadership, Education Week and English Journal, and most recently atwillrichardson.com. I’m an outspoken advocate for change in schools and classrooms in the context of the diverse new learning opportunities that the Web and other technologies now offer.

A former public school educator for 22 years, I’m a co-founder of Powerful Learning Practice (http://plpnetwork.com), a unique professional development program that has mentored over 5,000 teachers worldwide in the last five years. My first book, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms (Corwin Press, 3rd Edition 2010) has sold over 80,000 copies and has impacted classroom practice around the world. My second book, Personal Learning Networks: Using the Power of Connections to Transform Education, (Solution Tree) was released in May, 2011. And my third book, a collection of blog posts titled Learning on the Blog, was published in August of 2011 by Corwin Press.

Over the past six years, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to speak and work with to tens of thousands of educators in over a dozen countries about the merits of online learning networks for personal and professional growth. I’m proud to ba a national advisory board member of the George Lucas Education Foundation, and a regular columnist for District Administration Magazine.

When I’m not on the road, you can find me in rural New Jersey with my wife Wendy and my children Tess and Tucker

Read Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere, then enjoy this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers.

Here's Amazon's Book Description of Why School? http://goo.gl/joIS9September 10, 2012

Traditional educators, classrooms, and brick-and-mortar schools are no longer necessary to access information. Instead, things like blogs and wikis, as well as remote collaborations and an emphasis on 'critical thinking' skills are the coins of the realm in this new kingdom. Yet the national dialogue on education reform focuses on using technology to update the traditional education model, failing to reassess the fundamental design on which it is built.

In 'Why School?,' educator, author, parent and blogger Will Richardson challenges traditional thinking about education — questioning whether it still holds value in its current form. How can schools adjust to this new age? Or students? Or parents? In this provocative read, Richardson provides an in-depth look at how connected educators are beginning to change their classroom practice. Ultimately, 'Why School?' serves as a starting point for the important conversations around real school reforms that must ensue, offering a bold plan for rethinking how we teach our kids, and the consequences if we don't.

Share what's new on this week's episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers (TTT). We have an exciting line-up of topics and guests over the next several weeks, and so on this episode we decided to learn from each other.

TTT started with a group of teachers getting together, just sharing what they are noticing, dreaming of, connecting with and doing that was awesome. On this episode of TTT we continue that tradition.

Paul Allison and Monika Hardy are joined by Fred Mindlin, Jo Paraiso, Jerery Hyler, Joel Malley, Jim Nordlinger, and Loren ELF:

We talk a bit about our recent learning experiences at this year's DML conference, introduce new teachers who have just started using Youth Voices, and just basically catch up with each other.

Using Monika Hardy's notion of Detox, we talk about what we are noticing, dreaming of, connecting to, and doing that's awesome.

Enjoy! There are lots of ideas and plans here that we would love to involve you in as well.

TTT#340 A Year at Mission Hill with David Loitz, Amy Valens, Sam Chaltain, Jenerrad Williams, Bob Goodman, and more... 3.13.13

2013-03-27
Length: 41s

Tweet

On this episode of TTT we discuss the video series, "A Year at Mission Hill" http://ayearatmissionhill.com.

Ten videos. One year. A public school trying to help children learn and grow. The national conversation we need to be having.

Monika Hardy and Chris Sloan host David Loitz who welcomes director, Amy Valens along with the series narrator and education activist, Sam Chaltain . Mission Hill teacher, Jenerrad Williams and Mission Hill parent, Bob Goodman join the conversation as well. And that's not all. We are also joined by IDEA organizers and educators, Jabreel Chisley and Awo Okaikor Aryee-Price.

Our friends at the Institue for Democratic Education in America http://democraticeducation.org/index.php/features/missionhill/ write:

At IDEA, we're proud to be one of the partners behind "A Year at Mission Hill." The project began when filmmakers Tom and Amy Valens spent a year filming at the school community of Mission Hill, with plans for a full documentary release in fall 2013. The web series came together when Tom and Amy reached out to educator and news commentator Sam Chaltain. Sam brought together http://Ashokaashoka.org, IDEA http://democraticeducation.org/index.php/index/, and the NoVo Foundation http://novofoundation.org around the idea of making a series of short episodes to highlight a year in the life of Mission Hill. Under IDEA's leadership, the concept grew into a larger opportunity to share the story across an eclectic coalition of education organizations, schools, and nonprofits. Currently, more than 40 community partners http://ayearatmissionhill.com/index.php/partners will be sharing the film series and offering their own resources to deepen viewers' learning around each chapter.

Maybe you are like Chris Sloan who says, "I'm hooked on the videos A Year at Mission Hill, looking forward to Part 4!"

Or maybe you're just learning of this effort to reimagine public education.

And to the left is a note pad where we can post links, etc.21:02Mattie : Okay. Thanks!21:03karen (@kfasimpaur): You should be hearing the pre-webinar banter in the video window.21:03Mattie : Got it now.21:03David Loitz: Yes21:04karen (@kfasimpaur): chat seems good here21:08David Loitz: feel free to chime in21:09karen (@kfasimpaur): never seen that before :)21:10Peggy George: hi everyone! my chat window is weird! one inch wide and have to scroll to read or type. :-(21:11karen (@kfasimpaur): Hi Peggy21:12karen (@kfasimpaur): I was really impressed with the transparency at MH that I saw in the first few video segments21:13carey: Hi all! Agreed, Karen. I like what I've seen on their site.21:14karen (@kfasimpaur): more g+ issues than usual tonight....21:15Peggy George: after a reload, now I can see the full chat window and Titanpan but the video is last week's show. Hmmmm21:15karen (@kfasimpaur): hmmm...video is good here21:16Peggy George: before I could see the video and not the chat window21:17karen (@kfasimpaur): "teachers as a cohort of learners"...powerful21:18karen (@kfasimpaur): If you're in the hangout and here, don't play the video on this page :)21:20Mattie : Relationships. That's important. Relationships value each member. Relationships aren't one-way. So important!21:21karen (@kfasimpaur): IDEA ->http://democraticeducation.org/index.php/index/21:22Mattie : When I watched the episodes, I felt at home. It felt just right.21:22karen (@kfasimpaur): We need to see more models of great schools like this. They are out there. Making movies about them is powerful.21:23rach: They are very important and people forget that which is sad21:25David Loitz: great comment21:26David Loitz: can you all see the video?21:26karen (@kfasimpaur): Not really.21:26Peggy George: giving up! I can see the chat but the only video I can see is last week's recording. So sorry. I'll have to watch the recording.21:26karen (@kfasimpaur): Is there a YouTube link for it? (Or maybe it's not public yet.)21:26karen (@kfasimpaur): Sorry, Peggy. See you next time.21:27Mattie : I can't find it on YouTube, so it must not be public.21:30karen (@kfasimpaur): I'm going to go see if we can get a link... brb21:30Mattie : YouTube video is not showing... got the audio.21:32David Loitz: http://youtu.be/9Efoj38lp2w21:32Mattie : Thanks for the link!21:32karen (@kfasimpaur): Thanks, David!21:32karen (@kfasimpaur): Let's pause and all watch the video for a few minutes.21:32Mattie : I'm going to YouTube to watch. THANKS!21:32karen (@kfasimpaur): Yes! Thanks.21:34David Loitz: Thanks everyone for being flexible21:38Mattie : "academics don't exist in a vacuum" :-)21:38karen (@kfasimpaur): That was so powerful.21:38karen (@kfasimpaur): Thank you.21:39Mattie : AWESOME!21:39karen (@kfasimpaur): If you are back and haven't, you can skip back to the "live" part of broadcast above.21:40karen (@kfasimpaur): I've been at schools where teachers aren't permitted to hug (or otherwise touch) the kids. That makes me sad.21:40Mattie : Kids are people. It's that human factor that is key. We're all together in this, and it's important to invite kids into it as human beings. We all need that empathy piece to thrive, to collaborate, to grow.21:40unnamedwhere is the live video of this broadcast?21:41karen (@kfasimpaur): It's at the top of this page. (embedded G+ window) Click play an then click ahead to "live"21:41karen (@kfasimpaur): David, thanks for going between the g+ and our chat here. That's helpful. :)21:42karen (@kfasimpaur): @unnamed, did you get to the live video?21:43carey: I love what she's saying right now. There has to be a pretty safe teaching environment for that kind of collaboration to happen.21:43unnamed@Karen how do I click ahead to live?21:44karen (@kfasimpaur): bottom left corner (next to volume button)21:45Mattie : "that emotional piece" ... the human piece21:45karen (@kfasimpaur): True...Separation of all these issues is a problem.21:45David Loitz: Your welcome!21:46karen (@kfasimpaur): Being able to articulate understanding + empathy at that age is wonderful.21:46karen (@kfasimpaur): (I know adults who can't do that. :)21:48Mattie : That education is not preparation for life, but that it IS life. Deweyism.21:48karen (@kfasimpaur): Yes, this is progressive education, but some of this could be done in any school21:49Mattie : Hard to create this atmosphere when we're tied to weekly "target skills" that don't place value on emotional growth...21:49karen (@kfasimpaur): I would love to hear folks address the film making process -- how it came about, how it's worked, what the future plans are...21:50karen (@kfasimpaur): Getting the msg out about this to the general public seems incredibly important.21:50Mattie : Challenging, but not impossible. We have to think beyond barriers... and shrug off some of the constraints we feel limit us. They don't have to limit us.21:50karen (@kfasimpaur): I agree, Mattie21:50Mattie : @karen -- just watching these episodes would be so empowering for teachers feeling all of the "can'ts"21:51karen (@kfasimpaur): yes...there are so many barriers and challenges that it's esy to get bogged down in them21:52karen (@kfasimpaur): We don't need "permission" to care about every student21:53Mattie : Word! Is that David? Learning IS messy... and unpredictable... and hard to see the end of ... it's a minute-by-minute experiential thing that has a life of its own.21:53carey: exactly, Maddie (and David) :)21:53Mattie : Embracing that is risky for some. It can be scary.21:53carey: Mattie, sorry - spelling... yeesh :)21:53karen (@kfasimpaur): It is scarey...but less so when it's acknowledged21:54David Loitz: Let me know if you want to aska question21:54Mattie : Right. The culture. The climate. The school leadership and colleagues can embrace and support it or build walls.21:54karen (@kfasimpaur): @David, thx. See above about the film making process itself21:54Mattie : What's so special at Mission Hill is that there's a shared vision.21:55karen (@kfasimpaur): Every school that I've been to that has this kind of special environment says it's an issue of deep culture21:56Mattie : We. We. We. :-)21:56Mattie : Empowered by collective caring.21:57karen (@kfasimpaur): and "we as a community" not just a staff or a school21:57Mattie : Yes, @Karen. Deeper, isn't it?21:58karen (@kfasimpaur): definitely21:58karen (@kfasimpaur): I hear a lot of schools pitting themselves agains the community instead of thinking of themselves as a part of it21:59karen (@kfasimpaur): I loved the video where someone said "Our job is to help raise these kids to be a part of a democratic society."22:00Mattie : What is often missing is that true, genuine valuing. Valuing of the human quotient, the community.22:00David Loitz: please tweet some of theses comments using the #yearatMH22:00karen (@kfasimpaur): Yes, blaming others doesn't fix the problems.22:02Mattie : "Each child as unique" -- so much more layered than "Student as data point"22:02Mattie : instagrammed it ... @David. Not on twitter.22:03karen (@kfasimpaur): Mattie, I'll retweet you :)22:03Mattie : :-)22:04karen (@kfasimpaur): You're indirectly on Twitter now :)22:04David Loitz: I am @dloitz on twitter22:04karen (@kfasimpaur): Farm to Table is a great program for this too.22:04Mattie : :-) thanks, @karen :: I think I have an account... I've just never used it.22:04karen (@kfasimpaur): (I *live* on Twitter.)22:05karen (@kfasimpaur): again, teacher as learner...powerful22:05Mattie : Question: How do you bypass the testing and data trap? Is there pressure and how do you counter it? Do you have support from your district?22:05Mattie : This is honey bee poetry right now. :-)22:08karen (@kfasimpaur): well said22:08Mattie : Hooray! :-) I read that book every year before testing! :-)22:10Mattie : :-) Is there an emoticon for "inspired"? Thanks so much for this.22:10rach: I don't know if you touch on this but how do the teachers grade the students?22:12Mattie : SHIFT! Earthquake! :-)22:12karen (@kfasimpaur):http://augusttojune.com/22:13Mattie : Went right to it, too, @karen! Another way to keep my fire going. :-)22:14karen (@kfasimpaur): Thanks so much to all of you for the great conversation. Inspiring indeed!22:14Mattie : Ongoing conversations, lasting commitment.

On this episode of TTT we discuss the video series, "A Year at Mission Hill" http://ayearatmissionhill.com.

Ten videos. One year. A public school trying to help children learn and grow. The national conversation we need to be having.

Monika Hardy and Chris Sloan host David Loitz who welcomes director, Amy Valens along with the series narrator and education activist, Sam Chaltain . Mission Hill teacher, Jenerrad Williams and Mission Hill parent, Bob Goodman join the conversation as well. And that's not all. We are also joined by IDEA organizers and educators, Jabreel Chisley and Awo Okaikor Aryee-Price.

Our friends at the Institue for Democratic Education in America http://democraticeducation.org/index.php/features/missionhill/ write:

At IDEA, we're proud to be one of the partners behind "A Year at Mission Hill." The project began when filmmakers Tom and Amy Valens spent a year filming at the school community of Mission Hill, with plans for a full documentary release in fall 2013. The web series came together when Tom and Amy reached out to educator and news commentator Sam Chaltain. Sam brought together http://Ashokaashoka.org, IDEA http://democraticeducation.org/index.php/index/, and the NoVo Foundation http://novofoundation.org around the idea of making a series of short episodes to highlight a year in the life of Mission Hill. Under IDEA's leadership, the concept grew into a larger opportunity to share the story across an eclectic coalition of education organizations, schools, and nonprofits. Currently, more than 40 community partners http://ayearatmissionhill.com/index.php/partners will be sharing the film series and offering their own resources to deepen viewers' learning around each chapter.

Maybe you are like Chris Sloan who says, "I'm hooked on the videos A Year at Mission Hill, looking forward to Part 4!"

Or maybe you're just learning of this effort to reimagine public education.

Either way, we invite you to join this important conversation by listening to this episode of TTT.

On this episode of TTT a group of educators discuss "A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age" http://goo.gl/9pIiq Here's who joins the conversation:

Paul Allison, Timothy Burke, Jack West, Chris Slon, Anya Kamenetz, Bonnie Stewart, Monika Hardy, Karen Fasimpaur, Jesse Stommel, and Nikhil Goyal

Here's the version of the document we are discussing that was published at Hybrid Pedagogy (Jan. 22, 2013):

On December 14, 2012, a group of 12 assembled in Palo Alto for a raucous discussion of online education. Hybrid Pedagogy contributors Sean Michael Morris and Jesse Stommel gathered together with folks from a diverse array of disciplines and backgrounds, representing STEM fields, the humanities, schools of education, corporations, non-profits, ivies, community colleges, and small liberal arts colleges. Among us were adjuncts, CEOs, a graduate student, several digital humanists, and two outspoken educational technology journalists. As a group, we’d chaired online programs, designed MOOCs, dropped out of MOOCs, and the term "MOOC" was even coined in one of our living rooms. The goal of the summit was to open a broader conversation about online learning and the future of higher education. See the story in The Chronicle. This co-authored document, which calls for hacking and open discussion, was the result.

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital AgePreamble

Work on this Bill of Rights & Principles began in Palo Alto, California, on December 14, 2012. We convened a group of people passionate about learning, about serving today's students, and about using every tool we could imagine to respond better to the needs of students in a global, interactive, digitally connected world.

The Internet has made it possible for anyone on the planet to be a student, a teacher, and a creative collaborator at virtually no cost. Novel technologies that can catalyze learning are bubbling up in less time than it takes to read this sentence. Some have emerged from universities, some from the private sector, some from individuals and digital communities. In the past year, Massive Online Open Courseware, or MOOCs, have become the darling of the moment--lauded by the media, embraced by millions--so new, so promising in possibility, and yet so ripe for exploitation.

We believe that online learning represents a powerful and potentially awe-inspiring opportunity to make new forms of learning available to all students worldwide, whether young or old, learning for credit, self-improvement, employment, or just pleasure. We believe that online courses can create "meaningful" as well as “massive" learning opportunities.

We are aware of how much we don't know: that we have yet to explore the full pedagogical potential of learning online, of how it can change the ways we teach, the ways we learn, and the ways we connect.

And we worry that this moment is fragile, that history frequently and painfully repeats itself. Think of television in the 1950s or even correspondence courses in the 1920s. As we begin to experiment with how novel technologies might change learning and teaching, powerful forces threaten to neuter or constrain technology, propping up outdated educational practices rather than unfolding transformative ones.

All too often, during such wrenching transitions, the voice of the learner gets muffled.

For that reason, we feel compelled to articulate the opportunities for students in this brave electronic world, to assert their needs and--we dare say--rights.

We also recognize some broader hopes and aspirations for the best online learning. We include those principles as an integral addendum to the Bill of Rights below.

Our broad goal is to inspire an open, learner-centered dialogue around the rights, responsibilities, and possibilities for education in the globally-connected world of the present and beyond.I. Bill of Rights

We believe that our culture is increasingly one in which learning, unlearning and relearning are as fundamental to our survival and prosperity as breathing. To that end, we believe that all students have inalienable rights which transfer to new and emerging digital environments. They include:

The right to access
Everyone should have the right to learn: traditional students, non-traditional students, adults, children, and teachers, independent of age, gender, race, social status, sexual orientation, economic status, national origin, bodily ability, and environment anywhere and everywhere in the world. To ensure the right to access, learning should be affordable and available, offered in myriad formats, to students located in a specific place and students working remotely, adapting itself to people’s different lifestyles, mobility needs, and schedules. Online learning has the potential to ensure that this right is a reality for a greater percentage of the world’s population than has ever been realizable before.

The right to privacy
Student privacy is an inalienable right regardless of whether learning takes place in a brick-and-mortar institution or online. Students have a right to know how data collected about their participation in the online system will be used by the organization and made available to others. The provider should offer clear explanations of the privacy implications of students' choices.

The right to create public knowledge
Learners within a global, digital commons have the right to work, network, and contribute to knowledge in public; to share their ideas and their learning in visible and connected ways if they so choose. Courses should encourage open participation and meaningful engagement with real audiences where possible, including peers and the broader public.

The right to own one’s personal data and intellectual property
Students also have the right to create and own intellectual property and data associated with their participation in online courses. Online programs should encourage openness and sharing, while working to educate students about the various ways they can protect and license their data and creative work. Any changes in terms of service should be clearly communicated by the provider, and they should never erode the original terms of privacy or the intellectual property rights to which the student agreed.

The right to financial transparency
Students have a right to know how their participation supports the financial health of the online system in which they are participating. They have a right to fairness, honesty, and transparent financial accounting. This is also true of courses that are "free." The provider should offer clear explanations of the financial implications of students' choices.

The right to pedagogical transparency
Students have the right to understand the intended outcomes--educational, vocational, even philosophical--of an online program or initiative. If a credential or badge or certification is promised by the provider, its authenticity, meaning, and intended or historical recognition by others (such as employers or academic institutions) should be clearly established and explained.

The right to quality and care
Students have the right to care, diligence, commitment, honesty and innovation. They are not being sold a product--nor are they the product being sold. They are not just consumers. Education is also about trust. Learning--not corporate profit--is the principal purpose of all education.

The right to have great teachers
All students need thoughtful teachers, facilitators, mentors and partners in learning, and learning environments that are attentive to their specific learning goals and needs. While some of us favor peer learning communities, all of us recognize that, in formal educational settings, students should expect--indeed demand--that the people arranging, mentoring and facilitating their learning online be financially, intellectually and pedagogically valued and supported by institutions of higher learning and by society. Teachers’ know-how and working conditions are students’ learning conditions.

The right to be teachers
In an online environment, teachers no longer need to be sole authority figures but instead should share responsibility with learners at almost every turn. Students can participate and shape one another’s learning through peer interaction, new content, enhancement of learning materials and by forming virtual and real-world networks. Students have the right to engaged participation in the construction of their own learning. Students are makers, doers, thinkers, contributors, not just passive recipients of someone else’s lecture notes or methods. They are critical contributors to their disciplines, fields, and to the larger enterprise of education.

II. Principles

The following are principles to which the best online learning should aspire. We believe the merit of specific courses, programs, or initiatives can be judged on the strength of their adherence to these principles and encourage students and professors to seek out and create digital learning environments that follow and embody them.

Global contribution
Online learning should originate from everywhere on the globe, not just from the U.S. and other technologically advantaged countries. The best courses will be global in design and contribution, offering multiple and multinational perspectives. They should maximize opportunities for students from different countries to collaborate with one another, to contribute local knowledge and histories and to learn one another’s methods, assumptions, values, knowledge and points of view.

Value
The function of learning is to allow students to equip themselves to address the challenges and requirements of life and work. Online learning can serve as a vehicle for skills development, retraining, marketable expertise. It can also support self-improvement, community engagement, intellectual challenge, or play. All of these functions are valid. The best programs and initiatives should clearly state the potential contexts in which they offer value.

Flexibility
Students should have many options for online learning, not simply a digitized replication of the majors, minors, requirements, courses, schedules and institutional arrangements of conventional universities. The best online learning programs will not simply mirror existing forms of university teaching but offer students a range of flexible learning opportunities that take advantage of new digital tools and pedagogies to widen these traditional horizons, thereby better addressing 21st-century learner interests, styles and lifelong learning needs. Ideally, they will also suggest and support new forms of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary inquiry that are independent of old gatekeepers such as academic institutions or disciplines, certification agencies, time-to-degree measurements, etc.

Hybrid learning
Freed from time and place, online learning should nonetheless be connected back to multiple locations around the world and not tethered exclusively to the digital realm. This can happen by building in apprenticeships, internships and real-world applications of online problem sets. Problem sets might be rooted in real-world dilemmas or comparative historical and cultural perspectives. (Examples might include: “Organizing Disaster Response and Relief for Hurricane Sandy” or “Women’s Rights, Rape, and Culture” or “Designing and Implementing Gun Control: A Global Perspective.”)

Persistence
Learning is emergent, a lifelong pursuit, not relegated to the brick walls of an institution or to a narrow window of time during life; it has no specific end point. The artificial divisions of work, play and education cease to be relevant in the 21st century. Learning begins on a playground and continues perpetually in other playgrounds, individual and shared workspaces, communities and more. Learning can be assessed but doesn’t aim itself exclusively toward assessment.

Innovation
Both technical and pedagogical innovation should be hallmarks of the best learning environments. A wide variety of pedagogical approaches, learning tools, methods and practices should support students' diverse learning modes. Online learning should be flexible, dynamic, and individualized rather than canned or standardized. One size or approach does not fit all.

Formative assessment
Students should have the opportunity to revise and relearn until they achieve the level of mastery they desire in a subject or a skill. Online learning programs or initiatives should strive to transform assessment into a rich, learner-oriented feedback system where students are constantly receiving information aimed at guiding their learning paths. In pedagogical terms, this means emphasizing individualized and timely (formative) rather than end-of-learning (summative) assessment. Similarly, instructors should use such feedback to improve their teaching practices. Assessment is only useful insofar as it helps to foster a culture of success and enjoyment in learning.




Experimentation
Experimentation should be an acknowledged affordance and benefit of online learning. Students should be able to try a course and drop it without incurring derogatory labels such as failure (for either the student or the institution offering the course). Through open discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of programs, the industry should develop crowd-sourced evaluative guides to help learners choose the online learning that best fits their needs.

Civility
Courses should encourage interaction and collaboration between students wherever it enhances the learning experience. Such programs should encourage student contributions of content, perspectives, methods, reflecting their own cultural and individual perspectives. Online learning programs or initiatives have a responsibility to share those contributions in an atmosphere of integrity and respect. Students have the right and responsibility to promote and participate in generous, kind, constructive communication within their learning environment.

Play
Open online education should inspire the unexpected, experimentation, and questioning--in other words, encourage play. Play allows us to make new things familiar, to perfect new skills, to experiment with moves and crucially to embrace change--a key disposition for succeeding in the 21st century. We must cultivate the imagination and the dispositions of questing, tinkering and connecting. We must remember that the best learning, above all, imparts the gift of curiosity, the wonder of accomplishment, and the passion to know and learn even more.

This episode of TTT is a conversation about the future of the teaching and schooling in general.The idea for this week's episode of TTT came about when +Andrew McGuire, a student of +Chris Sloan's who had graduated from high school last year, told Chris that he wants to be an English teacher. But he wants a different kind of education than a lot of what he has received. Chris writes:

He’s an education reformer at heart, and a lot of what he described as his ideal educational environment aligns with some of the people who’ve joined us on Teachers Teaching Teachers recently. He’s talking about connected learning in third spaces that involve a maker approach and is inquiry-based. So what would you tell an 18-year old who’s thinking about becoming an English teacher? Not only what Andrew and others like him should study, but how they should go about their teacher education?

Along with Andrew we are joined by these educators: Meenoo Rami, Bryan Loftis, Troy Hicks, Scott Shelhart, Chris Lehmann.

Enjoy!

On this episode of TTT Monika Hardy and her student, Cristian Leobardo lead us in a be lab update. We take a look at their revised Website, their book, and their travels http://redefineschool.com.

Here's how Monika, her students and her colleagues describe their main foucus/premise:

Public education could be the most accelerating venue for social change. Rather than waiting for any of the incredible [past, current and ongoing] innovations in redefining public education to scale, imagine we scale the individual. Imagine a new (old) narrative that can start anywhere because it begs no prep or training. Imagine we trust simplicity enough to give it a go. Imagine hastening equity, and ongoing sustainability.
I’ve been working with youth the last four years, locally in Loveland Colorado, as well as virtually around the globe. We have been in an intense mode of experimenting with first, self-directed learning, and now, the intersection of city and school. We've been afforded an incubated space (sand box) within our city, as a connected adjacency (both in and out of) our school district.

We are joined on this episode of TTT by

TTT#332 Gooru for Learning with Xenia Shih, Timothy Burke, and Jody Donovan - plus Leah Jensen and Gail Desler 01.16.13

Find out more about Gooru http://goorulearning.org on this episode of TTT. This is the first in a series of webcasts in which we'll focus on Gooru, asking: How do you teach with Gooru? We'll be talking with teachers who use Gooru in their classrooms, asking them to share best practices and exchange ideas. And we'll dialogue with the Gooru team around what might be done to improve Gooru for all of us?

If you're new to Gooru, here are three places to start your inquiries:

You might take a look through the lens of Open Educational Resources (OER): Project Blue Sky: Big Boost to OER From . . . Pearson?

Gooru Learning itself has a pedigree that is worth considering. Gooru is developed by Ednovo, the nonprofit education startup founded by Prasad Ram. Ram has a rich history in Silicon Valley, including work at Xerox PARC, Yahoo! and Google. While Director of Engineering for Google Research, Ram developed the concept for using search technology to discover educational content. Ram decided to leave Google in January 2011 and pursue this concept. Ram has started an education focused non-profit startup called Ednovo, which is going to build upon Gooru, a free web based education solution that was begun as a ’20% effort’ at Google, and piloted in India with 25 classrooms and 1000 students. Gooru allows teachers to use openly licensed web resources, find lesson plans on all subjects and topics and then customize it to their specific needs, with rich multimedia content including videos, slides, and simulations.

You could take a dive into Kevin Hodgson's Meandering Mind and read his review, Gooru: Another Research Project Resource.

So, this morning, I went to Gooru to poke around a bit and remember what it is about. When I had been there last, the site had recently launched and I wasn’t quite sure what they were up to. There didn’t seem to be a lot of content. Now I understand. The site is another way to help students streamline their research queries (sort of like Instagrok, which I use) and for teachers to build up “collections” of resources that can be shared. I like the overall feel of the site — it takes a few minutes to get a sense of what to do, but once you understand it, you will see there are powerful paths to follow.

You might also go to Gooru themselves and find out that they want to help us "Spend More Time Learning--and Less Time Searching."

Every day teachers and students scour the web to find the best resources to help them learn or teach, pulling from different resources scattered all over the Internet--but what if you could find and organize all the best web resources in one place? With Gooru, you can. Watch NASA videos about solar flares, play interactive games on PBS.com that teach about friction, and take quizzes on equations from Khan Academy. We aggregate the best of the web, giving you high-quality and free multimedia resources within seconds, so you can spend more time studying, and less time searching. When you find resources you love, you can then organize them into a playlist called a collection.

You might also find out what you need to know to get started by listening to our inspiring guests for this episode of TTT:

Paul Allison, Monika Hardy, and Chris Sloanhost Xenia Shih, Timothy Burke, and Jody Donovan from Gooru along with two amazing California teachers, Leah Jensen and Gail Desler.

On this episode of TTT, re-mix and get ready for EduCon 2.5 http://educonphilly.org with George Mayo, Harry Costner, and Bill Fitzgerald along with our friends Scott Shelhart and Kelsey Shelhart.

A few weeks ago, George wrote in an email:

Another teacher and I have this experiment for this year's Educon called @remixeducon http://educonphilly.org/conversations/remixeducon . We're planning on creating a structure for participants to share, download and remix media created throughout the conference. The other teacher's name is Harry Costner. He's a really cool middle school film teacher in Virginia.
Would it be possible for us to pitch our @remixeducon idea on a TTT show sometime after the new year as we get closer to Educon? I'm trying to think of ways to spread the word about our project before the conference.

How do you turn down an offer like that?

In addition, Harry and George are doing a second session at Educon on Video Production and Social Media http://educonphilly.org/conversations/Video_Production_and_Social_Media:A_Powerful_Combination

That's not all!

When we heard that Bill Fitzgerald would be remixing at Educon too, we asked him what he’s up too. Here was his reply:

We are definitely running a pre-Educon event - the details (and some of our thoughts about what we hope to achieve, big picture) are linked in this post: http://funnymonkey.com/when-we-talk-about-open-content-this-is-what-we-talk-about
Our Educon session on this is at http://educonphilly.org/conversations/Adopting-Using-and_Reusing_Open_Content
We are also doing a second session on starting a non-profit: http://educonphilly.org/conversations/So_You_Want_To_Start_an_Educational_Non-Profit

Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Enjoy!

TTT#330 Quadblogging 2 with Cliff Manning, David Mitchell, Gail Desler, Linda Yollis, Matt Hardy, Sue Waters, Suzi Boss 1.9.13

2013-01-20

We are joined by colleagues from England and Australia on this episode of TTT as we follow-up with them on an earler conversations about blogging in elementary schools: http://edtechtalk.com/node/5156.

Our goal is simple: we want to make plans for elementary school students to find and respond to each others blog posts this spring. Joining us on this episode of TTT are Makewaves’ Cliff Manning, KidBlog’s Matt Hardy, Sue Waters from EduBlogs, and some of us are from Youth Voices. We are also joined by David Mitchell, the Quadblogging guru and Linda Yollis an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles who Quadblogs her own way.

Suzie Boss describes Quadblogging like this in a September 25, 2012 post in Edutopia:

The idea is deceptively simple. Four teachers agree to have their students comment on each other's blogs in an organized fashion. Each week, one of the four gets a turn as the spotlight class. The other three classes visit and leave comments. Over the course of a month, every student's work gets read and commented upon. Along the way, students learn about respectful online communication. They may decide to revise their thinking if a commenter shares a perspective they haven't considered.

On this episode of TTT Paul Allison, @paulallison is joined by Cliff Manning, @cliffmanning, Sue Waters, @suewaters, David Mitchell, @DeputyMitchell, Gail Desler, @gaildesler, Linda Yollis, @lindayollis, Matt Hardy, @hardy101, and Suzie Boss, @suzieboss.

On his blog, David Mitchell describes Quadblogging like this:

QuadBlogging is a leg up to an audience for your class/school blog. Over the last 12 months 100,000 pupils have been involved in QuadBlogging from 3000 classes in 40 countries....

A Blog needs an audience to keep it alive for your learners. Too often blogs wither away leaving the learners frustrated and bored. Quadblogging gives your blog a truly authentic and global audience that will visit your blog, leave comments and return on a cycle. Here’s how it works:

You sign up using the form below, shortly after, you will be allocated a Quad four schools/classes including your own. Each Quad has a co-ordinator who is responsible for making sure each of the quad members know what is going on and when. Each week one blog is the focus blog with the other three blogs visiting and commenting during that week. In week two, another school/class blog is the focus with the other three visiting and commenting. This is repeated until each of the classes/schools has had their week in the spotlight. The cycle is then repeated. However, this time, your pupils know what is coming – They will work harder than you have seen them work in order to get content on their blog!

QuadBlogging has been mentioned very highly in recent OfSTED Reports here in the UK and praised for offering opportunities for:“profound impact in developing pupils’ team working, communication and problem-solving skills.”

It’s simple – Give it a try, sign up here.

Enjoy!

Enjoy our first show in 2013 on TTT with +Karen Fasimpaur @kfasimpaur. Karen talks about a new opportunity she is providing for youths on P2PU: Youth Maker Space - Jan.-Mar. 2013 p2pu.org/en/groups/maker-space

This group is for youth (13 and over) and teachers. It is a place to make stuff -- like digital stories, food, electronics, apps, robots, rockets, clothes, and more -- and to share with others. There are short projects that just take an hour or so and bigger projects that might take several days. Just choose whatever you want to work on and go! (With thanks for support provided by the Shuttleworth Foundation)

TTT#328 K-6 Blogging & Quadblogging w/ Gail Desler, Gail Poulin, Kevin Hodgson, Margaret Simon, Matt Hardy, Suzie Boss 12.19.12

So you want your K-6 students to blog because you want them to have an audience beyond your classroom. What do you do? Do you set up a blog for each student or for your class, perhaps using http://edublogs.org? Do you join us at http://youthvoices.net or do you join http://kidblog.org ? And there are plenty of other choices.

But here's the rub: How do you get your students' posts out there in the world to get responses from K-6 students like them? How can be build a stronger community of elementary school teachers whose students are blogging together?

We would like to invite you to help us consider some of these questions with the amazing educators on this episode of TTT.

Gail Desler, Gail Poulin, Kevin Hodgson, Margaret Simon, Matt Hardy, Paul Allison, Suzie Boss, and Tony Iannone

Consider QuadBlogging and other complications around having your own class EduBlog or working in a community like Youth Voices or KidBlog, and the problems and delights of having different ages working together, or not?

Gail Desler and Kevin Hodgson started this conversation in November at NCTE and they would like to see if it might not be possible to get something started with NWP elementary school teachers around some sort of community that gets more and more comments flowing.

Here's Gail's recent email that led us to schedule a TTT around this topic:

I would love to head into the New Year with some shared discussions on creating an elementary community of digital kids/digital writers that would lead into YouthVoices, but would actually be its own community. As I mentioned to both of you at NCTE, I'm spurred on by Suzie Boss's (who will be joining us on TTT) recent Edutopia post: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/quad-blogging-technology-classroom-suzie-boss Just seems like a perfect NWP project - that would be pretty easy to initiate and maintain.

That's not all! On Wednesday, January 9, 2013, we plan a follow-up conversation with many of the same people on this episode. Join us at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesday, 1.9.13 at 5PM ET/2PM PT/World Times: http://goo.gl/024pD

Enjoy this special episode of TTT, recorded in Las Vagas. We live-streamed our session and this is a recording of that event. Here's the program description:

This panel will discuss innovative models of professional development that include peer collaboration, self-directed learning, active involvement, and learning communities. We will give models for using social media for professional activities and we'll share a wide variety of resources and brainstorm how to involve teachers in driving their own personal learning to improve student learning and the profession as a whole.

Chair: Karen Fasimpaur K12 Open Ed, Portal, Arizona -Speaker: Paul Allison The Bronx Academy Senior High School, New York -Speaker: Harry Brake American School Foundation Librarian, Mexico City, Mexico -Speaker: Christina Cantrill National Writing Project, Berkeley, California -Speaker: Paul Oh National Writing Project, Berkeley, California -

Karen's reflections and notes, posted on her blog K12 Open Ed on November 26, 2012:

Last week, I had the privilege of facilitating a panel at NCTE called “Open Learning: Empowering Teachers Through Professional Development.”

Anyone who knows me knows that I have become a big believer in open models of professional learning through spaces like Twitter, P2PU, TTT, Digital Is, and others. This session was all about that. (Slides below. Also, we live streamed the session, thanks to Paul Allison, and the video is here.)

To me, these new models of professional learning are all about value, openness, self-direction, agency, and authenticity. It’s time to reject PD that doesn’t achieve these goals.

At the end of the session, we asked everyone to choose a few words that summarized what they thought the future of professional learning should be. Here they are.

 

Please add a comment with your own thoughts on this and join us in one of the many online spaces to explore this further.

Learn more about the Institute for Democratic Education in America (IDEA) democraticeducation.org on this episode of TTT , with our guests:

From the IDEA site:

Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice. It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. It’s a way of gathering together a vast and powerful set of ideas, philosophies of learning, research, school models, teaching practices, policies, and community visions so that a powerful story can be told that reclaims the “public” in public education—that is, education owned by all of us.

This is an ongoing discussion on TTT and we invite you to join us any Wednesday evening to reclaim the public in public education. Come on over to TTT edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET/6PM PT

Until the nuanced story is clear, truthful and told by and large by those who are experiencing the greatest suffering (ie: young people), the solutions generated will not be the ones our city needs. —Jayeesha Dutta

What's EduCon? http://educonphilly.org

"Educon is both a conversation and a conference."

It is an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas - from the very practical to the big dreams.

The Axioms: The guiding principles behind Educon:

1) Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members
2) Our schools must be about co-creating - together with our students - the 21st Century Citizen
3) Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around
4) Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate
5) Learning can - and must - be networked

“People need to have the power to solve their own problems” - Kosta GrammatisKosta Grammatis believes if you provide a person with a mobile  device and access to the internet their learning space can be anywhere.  Support a person’s curiosity to question, reason and create within whatever space they are in and their learning can become anything.  Learners of the 21st century need these things: a space, a device, a  connection, a facilitator, a motive. Yet over 5 billion people on this  planet don't have internet access. Loggie's Blog: http://loggiesblog.blogspot.kr/2012/10/teaching-questions.html Erika's blogs: http://erikajeanxo.blogspot.com/ ANDhttp://passiondschool.blogspot.com/https://twitter.com/erika_auger#sschat Social Studies Tweetchat   http://sschat.ning.com/Chat Logs Below

On this episode of TTT, we re-mix Karen Fasimpaur's Keynote for the K12 Online Conference strand: Visioning New Curriculum.

Welcome to day one of the 2012 K-12 Online Conference! All presentations are listed and linked on our main conference schedule.

Presentation Title: Visioning New Curriculum

Presentation Description: This keynote session by Karen Fasimpaur for the “Visioning New Curriculum” strand talks about the unique opportunities presented by Common Core, digital tools, openness, and innovation. The time for one-size-fits-all, top-down curriculum is over. This session gives examples of curriculum that is personalized, real world, iterative, and collaborative. It is time for a new era in curriculum — one that is digital, open, innovative, and built by and for our community. This video includes reflection questions which can be explored collaboratively athttps://p2pu.org/en/groups/k12-online-2012/ The ideas in this video were developed collaboratively with a group of many people much smarter than me. Thanks to everyone who played along. This process was a testament to the power of collaboration and of creation as way to reflect and learn.

This year’s FREE online conference will take place the weeks of Oct 22 – 25 and Oct 29 – Nov. 2, with a pre-conference keynote by Kevin Honeycutt on October 15th. The 2012 theme is, “Learn, Share, Remix.” The organizer team for this year’s conference selected “Learn, Share, Remix” for our theme because it embodies many of the ACTIONS we can model as 21st century teachers and students. We all want to model lifelong learning. Our digital connections afford us amazing opportunities to SHARE what we are learning along the way. REMIXING is the process taking knowledge and using it in creative and innovative ways. Remixers build on the work of others. REMIXING can also include transforming the ways we teach and learn. In each strand of our conference this year, we hope presenters will explore and model ways we can learn, share and remix our professional development. As we have in the past six years since K12Online started in 2006, our conference will continue to be primarily asynchronous, offering downloadable videos for participants to view at any time. We will also host several live events during this year’s conference. All conference dates will be listed on our 2012 Schedule. http://k12onlineconference.org/?page_id=1046Gail Desler and Natalie Bernasconi will keynote our “Getting Started” strand, one of two strands to be shared the first full week of our conference October 22 – 25.Karen Fasimpaur will keynote our second strand for week one of our 2012 conference, “Visioning New Curriculum.” This is a new and exciting strand for K-12 Online this year.Mathew Needleman will keynote the “Kicking It Up a Notch” strand of our 2012 conference in week two, which will run Oct 29 – Nov 2.Tiana Kadkhoda, aka “Paul,” from Mathtrain.TV will keynote our “Student Voices” strand during week 2 of our 2012 conference.Announcing K12Online12 Keynoters, Conference Flyer and Hashtag (#k12online12)http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=1068 Announcing K12Online12 Presentershttp://k12onlineconference.org/?p=1078 Volunteers for both small and large tasks are still needed before, during and after the conference.

More about Jimmy Santiago Baca, his poetry and his inspiration on this episode of TTT (recorded earlier this summer). We are joined by +Rex Veeder, +Sara Wedeman, and +Michael MacBride.

Rex writes: I am gathering some folks to talk about Medical Humanities and Narrative Medicine and it's relationship to education K through Higher Ed.

Also:

The survive and thrive conference and festival as an example of a different kind of conference for writing, art, education, science, and medicine (integrated), and the the Baca/Gleik kickistarter as an example of the principles in action -- how does an event reveal the relationships inherent in putting what we learn into practice?

This was the second of two shows http://edtechtalk.com/node/5118 this summer to help our some of our colleagues reach their Kickstarter goal of raising $50,000 to complete a documentary about Jimmy Santiabo Baca. They went beyoud their goal, and (according to a recent email) are busy at work.

On the earlier show, we met teachers +Denise VanBriggle and +Kym Sheehan as well as filmmaker +Daniel Glick. They told us more about a film project called "A Place to Stand,” which Daniel is making. The three of them used Kickstarter to raise money to finish a feature-length documentary about the life and poetry of Jimmy Santiago Baca http://www.jimmysantiagobaca.com

On a recent post on the National Writing Project's Connect http://connect.nwp.org/national/blog/16429/join-us-support-place-stand-documentary Denise and Kym write:

A Place to Stand is a documentary film (http://kck.st/NsBX8g) about New Mexico poet Jimmy Santiago Baca and his transformation in the 1970s from an illiterate convict to a celebrated poet. Since his release, Jimmy has become one of the foremost Mexican American poets in America.

We're not viewing this as just a film. For us, this is about service. Jimmy’s memoir and poetry have inspired prisoners to leave gangs, drug addicts to stay clean, and countless others to dramatically shift the course of their lives. A Place to Stand will make his inspiring story and poetry available to many who would never find it otherwise. Free copies will be given to detention centers, prisons and schools for at-risk youth, coupled with programming designed to help people find in themselves what Jimmy found through his poetry: a place to stand in life, a sense of self-worth, and a reason to live.

The conversation centered on combining the insights and work of artists and museum professionals with hands-on art making and collaborative curriculum design. On this episode, we carry on the idea of a 3rd Space, both in regard to physical and mental spaces. We talk about the idea of the entire city as the school, as well as a possible means to ground the chaos in the event an entire city was set free to play with this idea. Imagining a focus more on a networked individualism (B Wellman), than a standard prescription. Monika Hardy is our host and our guests are: Cristian Buendia, Dave Cormier, Dave Cormier, Kirill Kireyev, Kristen Specketer, Mary Ann Reilly, Daniel Craig, Fred Mindlin, and Jeff Lebow.</center>

On the first TTT about badges and learning goo.gl/97zku, we jumped into an ongoing conversation with educators who are developing a practical, pedagogical discourse between the heckling and the hype around badges.

We welcome you to join us. We’ll continue these conversations about learning and the peril and possibility of badges this fall. We're live at edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesdays at 9:00 PM Eastern / 6:00 PM Pacific.

We’ll continue to focus on incorporating badges into K-12 education and beyond. There’s so much to say on the topic. What’s your favorite blog post, video, article, resource about Badges? Please add a couple of links in the comments below. We want to be open and flexile about all of the ways people are talking about the issues involved. And, we are interested in keeping it real.

Why do high school students drop out? This is the question that +Paul Allison, +Monika Hardy, and +Chris Sloan host on this episode of +Teachers Teaching Teachers. We are joined by some pretty amazing colleagues and a student.

+Mary Ann Reilly was one of the catalysts of this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers. She had shared this video with +Troy Hicks, +Teresa Bunner, and +Buffy Hamilton "in response to the question about how we empower/engage high school students. The video chronicles work that educators at Morristown High School did in developing a classics academy. The film was made by Ben Donnellon."

This video frames our conversation. In addition we refer to "A 2006 survey, The Silent Epidemic, [which] put these questions [about engagement or the lack thereof in high school] to a group that isn’t usually asked for opinions on American education—high school dropouts. The study found that while some students drop out because of significant academic challenges, most dropouts are students who could have, and believe they could have, succeeded in school." http://www.gatesfoundation.org/learning/Pages/2006-High-school-drop-out-rate-survey.aspx

In reference to this survey, Troy Hicks had been wondering: "Where we are at ten years into '21st century learning' and NCLB. Are the problems with engagement really still just the same? Who are the students that are dropping out and why? Who is actually sticking around and not feeling engaged? Why?"

We also welcome Louis, a student from Bronx Academy Senior High http://bronxbash.com the school where Paul Allison teaches. His stories of staying school or not were a needed grounding for this conversation.

On this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers http://teachersteachingteachers.org/?feed=rss2, Monika Hardy and Paul Allison discuss "Detox," a reflective practice that they have been inviting students to do in their different contexts.

Monika has been doing Detox with her students for a couple of years http://labconnections.blogspot.com/p/what-is-detox.html

Recently, Paul started asking his students to reflect on their work, dreams, thoughts, and learning on Youth Voices: http://youthvoices.net/channel/31618

Monika and Paul are joined in this conversation by a co-conspirator with Monika and a researcher of Detox James Folkestad, from Colorado State University.

We also get the perspective of youths from two of Paul's high school students Evelyn Salazar and (on the phone) Shamar Smith. In addition there are valuable insights from 7th Grader Kelsey Shelhart and her father Scott Shelhart as well as Fred Mindlin.

After listening to this podcast, you might be inspired to try something similar in your classroom or perhaps your students are already doing this kind of reflection on who they are, what they are doing, what they dream could happen, what they are noticing, and what connections they are making.

Either way, whether you are starting something new or continuing a valuable process in your classroom, please let us know about it. We'd love to hear if "detox" is spreading virally or "scaling across trans-locally" to use some of the language that Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze have given us in their book Walk Our Walk On:

Taking things to scale doesn’t happen vertically through one-size-fits-all replication strategies... experiments move horizontally, scaling across villages and nations, trans-locally, as many diverse people learn from their discoveries and are inspired to try their own.

On this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers , we are joined by Deborah Frieze one of the authors of Walk Out Walk On http://walkoutwalkon.net 

We are joined by Chris Sloanmonika hardyJeff LebowChad SansingScott ShelhartMaryBeth HertzPaul AllisonKelsey Shelhart,Deborah Frieze, and Ryan White

More about Deborah from http://www.walkoutwalkon.net/authors: 

In 2001, Deborah Frieze walked out of her career as an executive in the high-tech industry. She was disillusioned by a business culture that emphasized short-term results, looked upon growth as an end rather than a means, and cared more about compliance than community. A year later, she met Meg Wheatley and a community of pioneering leaders who, like her, were walking out of organizations and systems that were failing to contribute to the common good. These were friends and colleagues of The Berkana Institute. She currently lives in Boston but can more often be found visiting friends and colleagues around the world who are creating healthy and resilient communities.
