Customized Learning - The Slideshow | Education Rethink
Great set of slides from John T Spencer. Notes are forthcoming, but the slides should speak for themselves. These were for his Reform Symposium presentation in 2011. (I missed it, so I'm glad it put them online.)

Reflection; My Favourite Posts | The Principal of Change [Great collection of posts to share with others at TCS.]
"What Makes a Master Teacher – My thoughts on the new qualities of a master teacher. Connecting with kids is mine, & should be everyone’s number one.

The Perfect Moment – It is important to connect the real world with the classroom...

The Power of Twitter – This was a little experiment I did with my staff that turned out way better than I would have imagined. If you have an administrator that has not bought into using this valuable tool, this story may help!...

Courage – A story about an amazing girl with Tourette Syndrome who inspired my school, & people all over the world.

The Why – A post discussing importance of defining why we do things in our school. It is not enough to just make change, but we really need to think WHY are we doing it in the first place.

A Technology Plan Based on Differentiated Learning – We work to meet the needs of each individual student so why are a lot of our plans for professional development not do the same?"

Time magazine = traditional schools « Re-educate
"This is a revolution in our society, and education policymakers and legislators are either unaware or acting as if they hope it will go away. It’s not going to. The days of average schools for average kids—and pre-fab curricula passed down from above—will soon go the way of Time magazine. People will simply stop settling for an average education for their kids when they can choose from the rising number of options that are customized just for them."

Israel’s Time To Know Aims To Revolutionize The Classroom
"Time To Know designs and produces what it calls ‘full digital curriculum coverage,’ which is a complete year’s worth of lesson plans, learning activities, and homework assignments. To grasp just what an immense undertaking this is, multiply these by the four subjects matters Time To Know targets—math, science, language arts and social studies—and now multiply that by 13 year’s worth of education (kindergarten plus 12 formal years of schooling). To put this into perspective, in a single year Time To Know produces animation with a combined length of one and a half feature films." [Sites constructivism, but doesn't sound like it.]

Educational Leadership:Meeting Students Where They Are:Why Teachers Should Try Twitter
"What lessons have I learned from Twitter? First, I finally understand how much differentiated learning matters. My own motivation levels have skyrocketed, I'm accessing ideas connected to my professional interests, and I've taken ownership of my own learning.

This has me convinced that we can use digital tools to differentiate learning for students, too. Although Twitter may not be appropriate in all situations— elementary students would struggle to build meaningful networks of peers, and schools would have to actively address Internet safety—it's being used successfully by several inventive high school teachers."
