Now that I am in Philadelphia for the Educon 2.2 Conference and able to focus more on my session, I thought I’d get a bit of a jumpstart on refining the conversation. I’m going to take very little time to “present” and use the vast bulk of time to have everyone brainstorm and develop a shared vision(s) Â … at least as much of one as can be done in a bit more than an hour.
The title for the session is “Elementary School In The 21st Century, How Does The Pedagogy Change? What Does That School Look Like?”
We have limited time so what should be our focus? Here is a list to get started, any additions deletions you can suggest in comments would be appreciated!
Standards? / Curriculum?
Assessment? / Accountability?
Does size matter?
Facilities? / Equipment?
Which subjects are taught / are not taught?
Magnet school / school with-in school?
Extra-curricular Programs? Sports, arts, scouts, various clubs / interest groups
Local / Global Connections / outreach?
Parent / Home Connection(s)?
Learning is messy!
