Transcript of "In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a

"In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you take for granted." - Bertrand Russell
The primary driver of questions...
We don't know! Possibility exists here.
Answers end the process of inquiry for teachers and students.

Our Goal at Anastasis Academy...
to ask, "Now that we know what we know, what is possible now?"
We live for these what if moments!
Slow hunches
Slow hunches lead to something BIGGER!
Where Bigger Exists
Where will your "what if" moments take you?
A School Powered by Questions
Questions are the catalyst of innovation
Disruption of the status quo
Thinking differently
We are creative. We are innovative. We are Anastasis Academy. (http://standagain.org)

"An expert is one who has stopped thinking because he knows." -Frank Lloyed Wright
What if?
Why do we have grades?
What if a report card reflected a WHOLE child? What if we used a report card to show what we really know about a child?
How do we want an Anastasis student to look when they leave us?
Why do we use curriculum?
What if it wasn't one-size fits all?
How could we individualize curriculum?
Why do all classrooms look the same?
What if classroom space was used differently?
How can we use space based on postures of learning?
Why do teachers have to be the experts?
What if we introduced students to REAL experts?
How do we get kids in the same room?
How to develop questioners
Begin by designing a focus
Ask students to produce questions
Open and close questions
Agree on some favorites
Next steps (design thinking)
Reflection-THE KEY!
When you aren't sure where the question is...
Vuja de- look at something familiar and see it in a new light.
Decide what to do.
Take a step back.
Notice what others miss.
Become a rebel!
Gain understanding through inquiry.
Questions the questions (are they the right ones?)
Questions I've asked:
What if we could map the DNA of learning?
What if we focused on teaching individuals instead of masses?
What if we created a new method of assessment?
What do we want a student leaving our school/classroom to look like?
What skills does the world need kids to have?
How do we unleash potential?
Why limit learning to what a current school building can facilitate?
What if PD wasn't about a topic?
What if PD was about connective inquiry?
What if classroom space were used differently?
What if the focus on technology was what it allowed?
What if there were space to prototype out ideas?
What if teaching were less about pushing knowledge?
What if we didn't have to do it the way it's always been done?
