Transcript of A Paradigm Shift in Education

The World is Flat In every story there is a story line and what keeps the story line interesting is the back stories. Today we are going to tell the story of Adopting Technology into the Common Core. We are also going to tell the back stories of how students will learn best in the Common Core. These back stories will be about inflection points, and past or present paradigms of thinking. The new back stories will be about thinking outside of the box for a new generation, a new generation of learners who will be asked to perform authentically while thinking abstractly. We are now introduced to the next back story of a paradigm, a paradigm of dysfunctional proportions , the idea of accountability as established through No Child Left Behind Let's take one example of an inflection point as it might be related to the future. This back story concerns the launching of Netscape as Thomas Friedman points out the importance of “inflection points” in history. In April of 2011 the National Center for Fair & Open Testing concluded that practices implemented through NCLB have been unsuccessful Now that leads us back to the plot of the story and its most essential question, "What is reauthorization?" Reauthorization is simply moving away from the first paradigm as we are now in a paradigm shift. Yet we know that in every paradigm shift begins a new set of problems. You know, inflection points, the point in a curve at which it changes direction from convex to concave, or vice versa when Netscape was launched “We went from a world where value was created in vertical silos of command and control to one in which value is created horizontally on this platform by who you connect and collaborate with Now how does this back story on inflection points relate to the plot of our story -- Education is at an inflection point – a strategic opportunity to change course or direction. But what if the paradigm is wrong? Presentation Produced
