Create the Environment | Connected Principals | ICT learning | Scoop.it

I realized that my role is not to be “the innovative one”, but in actuality, it is to help create the best environments for our school division to allow the brilliance of others to create the innovation. This needs to be an environment and culture that is created for every person from student to superintendent. The more we tap into each other, the better we all are.

 

I used to think that we needed to make a shift in our classrooms from “teacher focused” to “student focused”. But through my work, and then seeing the photo below, that statement wasn’t quite right. The best environments are learner focused. It is an “all in” idea that learning is something we do with our students, not to them.

Scratch is a simple yet powerful programming language for children that is very easy to use yet contains many of the important programming constructs found in more “grown up” languages.

Culture of Learning and Wisdom

Culture of Learning and Wisdom | ICT learning | Scoop.it

"Recently, I [George Couros] had the opportunity to visit Minchau School with Edmonton Public Schools, to take a look at some of the work students were doing with green-screen technology and video creation.

 

Although this was the main reason for my visit, I also really believe in looking at the culture of a school and seeing not only what people do, but how it feels. I was extremely impressed with the environment and culture that has been developed in this school; it was beyond powerful.

 

No matter what technology, pedagogy, or teaching practice that you try to implement in your school, relationships and culture are at the forefront of any school being successful.

 

As I walked into the school, the first thing that I noticed were teachers spending their own time getting together before school to do some work on learning how to use iPads. Now I am not sure if this was time that was designated, but what I knew for sure was that these teachers were extremely interested in what they were doing.

 

As I, a stranger to all of them, sat down and offered a few tips, they were eager to listen and pick up anything that I was willing to share. They wanted to learn and they wanted to learn together. Something that we expect from our kids, but do we always model it in ways that they can see?"

11 Ideas for Fostering an Innovative Culture

11 Ideas for Fostering an Innovative Culture | ICT learning | Scoop.it

From George Couros:

 

Working with a group of administrators in Coquitlam, BC, I talked about some of the things that we have done in Parkland School Division to push our thinking ahead in the way that we are trying to improve teaching and learning. Although the list below is not meant to be sequential, they are meant to help others focus on how they can create an innovative culture as opposed to simply having “pockets”. Although we have a lot of work to do within our own school division, we have taken some huge steps in the last few years.

 

===> What would our kids gain from us if, as educators and parents, we did a better job of showing that we too are learners? What would schools be like if the adults in the building purposefully and explicitly lived and shared the process of being a learner? What would education be like if we adults intentionally created opportunities to be co-learners with the children that we serve? <===
