“Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly, and try another. But by all means, try something.”

Look at the 4 drafts of vision statements.
Put a dot near the statements that represent the picture of the future relative to personalized learning you want for NKE.
One dot per statement.

Step 4 – Las Vegas Voting

Two small groups combine vision statements – spend the next 30 minutes and repeat the process of common ground and gentle agreement.
The goal is to have 4-7 vision statements.

Step 3

Small group work – your goal is to spend the next 30 minutes beginning to develop 4-7 vision statements by combining your personal statements.
First – Seek common ground, the statements that all group members have in common with each other.
Second – Move to gentle agreement. Identify ideas you may not have thought of yourself, but agree are good ideas that you are willing to work for or toward. If everyone can agree they are worthwhile they are added to the list. If one person disagrees (they can’t live with it or support it) it is not written down.

Step 2

One of the most challenging aspects about our work is finding the compromise between the ideal and the realistic.

Resources to inform our thinking

Vision statements are vivid descriptions of what our school will look like when our mission is fulfilled.
Vision statements are the dreams or overarching goals that drive our school into the future.
Vision statements focus on opportunities rather than problems.
Vision statements provide a clear, easily understood image of a better future.
Vision statements provide us with purpose, and direct us to what will be different and distinctive.
Vision statements may last for 1-5 years, and are subject to change as the world changes.
A real vision is lived not framed.
Vision statements are more powerful if written in present rather than future tense.

Creating Shared Vision Statements

“Your successful past will block your visions of the future”
Joel Barker

Break – 10 minutes

What is the issue at hand?
Why must we address it?
Where are we now?
What do we hope to accomplish?
What can others do to help?

Guiding Questions

When I was young my parents used to tell me to finish my dinner because children in China were starving.
My Advice to my girls: finish your homework-people in China and India are starving for your jobs.
Thomas Friedman


What are the most important norms to adhere to today to ensure we are successful in our work?

NKE Group Norms

Develop an elevator speech to use if parents, community members, etc. ask us about PL.
Clarify what a successful learner looks like.
Develop 5-7 vision statements describing what PL will look like at NKE.


Develop an elevator speech. Personalized Learning, why are we studying the concept anyway?
(30 minutes)
Mission – what does a successful learner look like?
(30 minutes)
Create shared vision statements.
(2hrs 30 min)

Plan for the afternoon

April 22, 2013

NKE Personalized Leaning Professional Development

The Vision Subcommittee will polish the vision statements into complete and compelling statements to ensure they are realized and share them with staff.
Subcommittees will develop SMART goals for each vision statement.

Next Steps

Break – 10 minutes

Individually, write 4-6 vision statements that describe what you envision NKE will look like when personalized learning is realized. You should dream boldly but also realistically. Only write statements that you are willing to work hard for and be committed to, and that can be accomplished.
(30 minutes)

Step 1

Turn and talk with your tablemates about what a successful learner looks like. Develop a list and be prepared to share out in 15 minutes. The person that traveled the farthest away from home this year will be the reporter.
Round robin share out – each group shares one concept until all ideas are on the table.
A small group will work to combine the lists into one.

What does a successful learner look like?

Leadership Team Purpose: We will work collaboratively to ensure a culture of creativity and student success within our school and community.

Coop Kids Purpose: To create a positive and safe community with common goals that embrace diversity and student growth.

Together we grow successful learners.

NKE Mission

Purpose: To make sure that all staff members have a clear, concise, and common language for communicating the reason for the change.
Imagine you’re riding in an elevator with someone who wants to know why NKE is researching and planning to implement PL.
Turn and talk with your tablemates and use the following questions as a guide to describe in writing the reason for the change. Be prepared to report out in 15 minutes. The person with the most siblings will be the reporter.
A small group will combine the 8 statements and make one elevator speech for everyone to use if needed.

Why are we researching and planning for this thing called “personalized learning”?
“Developing an elevator speech.”

Leadership Team Purpose: We will work collaboratively to ensure a culture of creativity and student success within our school and community.

Coop Kids Purpose: To create a positive and safe community with common goals that embrace diversity and student growth.

Together we grow successful learners.

Create an elevator speech
Together we grow successful learners
NKE is beginning to explore Personalized Learning. We feel that although our students test scores are very good we know that we could do even better at preparing our students in 21st Century Skills in an ever-changing world. By personalizing learning we will be committed to making learning better by engaging learners, creating passion and commitment, making learning student-centered, encouraging creativity, recognizing differences such as learning styles, backgrounds, interests, readiness..... In addition, we feel that it is our duty and obligation to partner with families and community members to share in the responsibility of the future success of our children
Together we:
1. develop a learner profile for every student.
2. help students create customized learning paths.
3. are collectively responsible for all students.
4. value and teach 21st Century Skills.
5. create learning environments that support the needs of all students.
Focus on the bright spots
Motivate the elephant
