Author Will Richardson suggests three ways to rethink teaching and learning at a time when technology has "upended the basic premise of school."

“I actually think we should make it an expressed outcome from high school that all of our students are Googled well under their full names on graduation day.”
— Will Richardson
1. Thin the Walls of Your Classroom
2. Talk to Strangers
3. Be Transparent
It is a different time for teaching and learning. The unfortunate reality is that much of what we do in schools and in our own teaching practice is still grounded in thinking that has ruled the day for more than a century.
More troubling is that the waves of reform that are spreading are more focused on just doing what we’ve been doing better rather than rethinking our roles as schools and teachers and doing things differently. If our focus remains on numbers and scores and rankings and assessments, our kids are not going to get the learning outcomes they need for this new era of information and knowledge.
The good news? All of us can begin that change process in our own practice today. And if we do, our opportunities to learn deeply and passionately will only grow.
