I Believe…

While reviewing systems and my beliefs I reflected on this during the week. I believe I can serve the children who will live out their lives in the 21st century by building collaborative partnerships between families, communities, and educators independent of any proprietary business interests. Teach the deep reflective understanding of global historical, philosophical, creative, and intellectual content via the best methods 21st century with gospel values.

Every child deserves to be treated as a citizen of the 21st century. Every child in deserves an education that treats them first as human beings who will live out their life in the immediate globally connected world of the 21st century. A students key skills in school is his ability to bond with teachers. We’ve spent a generation trying to reorganize schools to make them better, but the truth is that people learn from the people they love.

I acknowledge there is a gap between 20th century manufactured education and its accompanying textbook-based bubble test knowledge and the reality of a shift in the authority of knowledge as made clear by the democratic and participatory technologies of the 21st century. Our students deserve better than to be sold a textbook or its online equivalent. This is changing our teaching profession. Many teachers are struggling with this change. It is up tp SLTs everywhere to give staff the tools to adapt.

Students should be made aware that most of what we predict about future career and workforce markets is complete nonsense. Students should learn that socio-economics effects the results of institutionalized education.

Something we should challenge ourselves to research more:

• Critical Media Network Skills

• Participatory and Networked Information and Communication Skills

• Collaborative Thinking

• Creating Networks and Digital Community

• Awareness of Digital History and Digital Footprint.

 

Professional Reading

I really enjoyed being part of this group during the week. It was an interesting discussion.
