Blended Learning Demands Big Open Spaces - Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark - blended learning, High school

Blended Learning Demands Big Open Spaces - Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark - blended learning, High school | Learning Leader | Scoop.it
My neighborhood high school is a 50-year-old spider web of additions crammed on to a downtown lot it shares with the district kitchen and stadium. It has little street appeal, no connection with the natural world, and is an energy hog. Like many high schools, the primary architectural features include rows of classrooms off narrow hallways, a cafeteria, and a main office.

7 Qualities That Promote Teacher Leadership in Schools

7 Qualities That Promote Teacher Leadership in Schools | Learning Leader | Scoop.it
There’s a growing consensus among students, parents, teachers and education leaders that the current education system isn’t appropriately preparing young people for the future. Many districts are looking toward technology to patch the disconnect, but several recent reports indicate that technology alone cannot fix the ailing system.

High-quality teachers are essential to learning environments that consider each student as a unique, individual learner, but very few schools have good systems in place to support teachers learning together and sharing their expertise.

‘I’ve seen teachers support each other to develop the agency, confidence and skills in a very short time to do some remarkable things.’
Barnett Berry
Given the need for change felt by many involved in education, there may be a unique opening right now to invest in teacher leadership as a way forward. Founder and CEO of the Center for Teaching Quality, Barnett Berry, recently published a report summarizing 30 years of research on best practices to empower teachers to lead and improve practice. He says three shifts in policy and leadership culture may help move these efforts forward:

New types of assessment are gaining ground. Several states are piloting performance-based assessments to replace standardized testing.
Exemplars in the business community are now promoting flat organizational structures, where employees work in smaller teams and have more voice and power over how they work.
Teachers are more networked than ever before, providing a unique opportunity to share and spread good teaching practice.
“I’ve been around for a long time and I’ve seen teachers support each other to develop the agency, confidence and skills in a very short time to do some remarkable things,” Berry said. The most clear examples

Education Is A System; Teaching Is An Action; Learning Is A Process | Learning Leader | Scoop.it

"I recently read Audrey Waters write about privilege in education. I always appreciate Waters’—and similarly, Jackie Gerstein’s–habit of asking difficult questions and presenting a perspective on education that doesn’t always come up in the PLC meeting, tweet chat, or utopian summit on school design."
