We know our world is changing quickly! Social media, technology access, smart phones, ipads, etc… How will our schools need to evolve as a result of all these changes? In Building School 2.0 (written by Chris Lehmann and Zac Chase), the authors share 95 “theses” or topics for teachers and leaders to reflect on and discuss as they try to refine/create the schools we need.
One phrase that I connected with is: “What’s Good? Is Better Than What’s New?” What are we doing well? How are we effectively engaging students in our classrooms? How can technology transform or amplify our practices? What resources do we have that we have not had in the past? In this theses, the authors ask us to think about how we can marry best practices of the past to the world we live in today. How can we do this as we vision for the future? How do we include student, teacher, and leader voice in this conversation?
