What We Need
These are just some of our ideas.
We didn't come up with a solution for everything we worked on.
Not every solution that we came up with will be shown today.
We will be focusing on a few core ideas.

Example from Waves
The current framework was built for exploratory Tech-Ed not for core curriculum.
Development technology is out-dated
Content is aging faster than we can update it
Curriculum comes in one form - Module Labs.
You can't buy one Module or even a part of a Module.
One way to implement
Not whole class or virtual
Six to eight months of development
Even small changes mean you have to update the whole Module.

Content Decisions
Title

2001
2007
"Obvious" and "General" Ideas
We should be building a living system.

We should design and build iteratively.

We should be building complex systems from simpler systems in layers.
Today
What does "Living System" Mean?
Standards
Title
Standards
It means a system that grows and improves over time.
The Development Environment hasn't improved for over 5 years.
The Delivery Engine hasn't changed in over 5 years.
The Module Framework has been essentially the same for almost 25 years.
We can't "lead educational change" if we are standing still.
Both education and technology are changing at a rapid pace.
The only way we can keep up and stay innovative is to keep moving forward.
The most important idea, is not the one we have right now.
The most important idea is the one we will have next week, next month, next year.
We need to have constant improvement so that we keep up.

Standards
Correlations to standards are labor intensive and time consuming
Solution:
Align As We Develop
Identify target standards
• Correlations
• No Textbooks
• No Worksheets
• Interactive Content
• Adaptive Content
• Branching
• Extended Learning
• Hands-on Activities
• Collaborative
• 7 Day Module Rotation
• Analytics
• Standards-based Assessments
• Real-time Standards Alignments
• Digital Portfolios
• Social Media
• Career Links
• Parent Log-in
• Gamification
Solutions to Solve These Issues
• New Module Frameworks
• Choose Your Path Student Experiences
• Adaptive Content
• Content Branching
• Standards-Based Analytics
• Digital Portofolios
• Gamification
• Social Networking

There have been lots of examples of where things have changed and we didn't keep up.
Changes have always been
Solution:
Sell Smaller Pieces
Pieces can still be grouped to sell large solutions.
• Money Management
• Immunology
• Electricity
• Future Fuels
Activities
Content
Future Pieces
Standards change
Often not available when they are needed
Solution:
Start with Standards
• Common Core
• Next Generation Science
• Other important states
Align as we write
• Correlations are available when needed
• Correlations are easier
• Content matches the size of standards
No access to this information
We're not gathering all the information we need
Gather the right information about our products so we can make good decisions
Any time anywhere content delivery
Social networking
Digital portfolios
Parent log-ins
Real-time alignments
Live updates
Solution:
Continuous Improvement
Componentized content allows us to:
• Adapt to changing frameworks
• Adapt to changing technology
• Adapt to societal changes
• Today's
• Tomorrow's
• 10 years from now
Solution:
Simplify Development
• Shorter development
Summary
Where Do We Go From Here?
• More deliverables
• Easier to update
• Push updates live
Smaller pieces means:
• Days and weeks rather than weeks and months
• Iterate to improve
Started with Standards
What do we need to be successful?
Your Feedback
Time to Work
An Area to Work Together
Better Internet (This has hindered our work so far)
FOUNDATION
Componentization
Standards First
Living System
Little Bets
Layers
You Are Here!
This is where the actual work is done.
This is turning ideas into reality.
Getting the End Product into users hands
How
What
Are We Ready To Go Forward?
What is
A three week iteration to create a proposal.
What should be the first piece we implement?
How should it be implemented?
What resources would it take?
What is our best estimate of time given different levels of resources?
If we aren't ready to move forward
We will take your feedback, reexamine and rework our ideas
and present again.
Call to Action!
Are we ready to move forward?
Big
changes.
We need to get away from that.
We need smaller, more consistent changes.
We need to avoid a pattern of falling behind and then catching up.
We should make "Little Bets".

Instead of building a Big Monolithic System for Synergy 2, we went with a layered approach.
Intro to Waves
User Interface
Business Logic
Data Storage
Developing a proof of concept
We need to extend this idea farther.
Smaller sub-systems that communicate with each other.
This will allow us add features and reuse pieces more flexibly.
This isn't a new idea, but it is really taking off in the last year or so.
Does componentizing work?
