Shifting From Ed Reform To Classroom Reform via Wendell Berry
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:
The Wendell Berry quote is thought provoking. We create a lanuage that acts as a code, only allowing those in who can repeat the code. However, depending on your role other codes can be used. For example, administrators keep teachers out with their code.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."


Via Beth Dichter, Dean J. Fusto
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

I like the approach of "walking in their shoes" to describe how educators effect an interest in learning.

The persistence of #edreform despite evidence of failure

The persistence of #edreform despite evidence of failure | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
NAEP results are yet again indicating that strict reforms, as current high school seniors have experienced a near-lifetime of initiatives that count as education "reform," from NCLB to RTTT, have failed. Mountains of evidence are collecting, but education reform programs, like scripted curricula in all subjects, persist for two reasons, in my estimation. One, educational change…
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:
I use the word transform (to take beyond) rather than reform which is moving deck chairs around on a sinking ship. Yet, I prefer the word John Dewey used, "reconstruct." We are always reconstructing teaching and learning conserving what is of value, discarding what is no longer relevant (for whatever reasons), and adding new things as we move beyond where we currently are.
