TTT#334 The Future of English with Andrew McGuire, Meenoo Rami, Bryan Loftis, Troy Hicks, Scott Shelhart, Chris Lehmann 01.30.13

This episode of TTT is a conversation about the future of the teaching and schooling in general.The idea for this week's episode of TTT came about when +Andrew McGuire, a student of +Chris Sloan's who had graduated from high school last year, told Chris that he wants to be an English teacher. But he wants a different kind of education than a lot of what he has received. Chris writes:

He’s an education reformer at heart, and a lot of what he described as his ideal educational environment aligns with some of the people who’ve joined us on Teachers Teaching Teachers recently. He’s talking about connected learning in third spaces that involve a maker approach and is inquiry-based. So what would you tell an 18-year old who’s thinking about becoming an English teacher? Not only what Andrew and others like him should study, but how they should go about their teacher education?

What's EduCon? http://educonphilly.org

"Educon is both a conversation and a conference."

It is an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas – from the very practical to the big dreams.

The Axioms: The guiding principles behind Educon:

1) Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members
2) Our schools must be about co-creating – together with our students – the 21st Century Citizen
3) Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around
4) Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate
5) Learning can – and must – be networked

Teachers Teaching Teachers 253 Chris Lehmann, Bud Hunt, Diana Laufenberg, Zac Chase, Matt VanKouwenberg, Larissa Pahomov 6.29.11

There were many wonderful moments at ISTE this year! One of them was the closing keynote by Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Leadership Academy (SLA) in Philadelphia. That evening we invited Chris, Bud Hunt, and four teachers from SLA — Diana Laufenberg, Zac Chase, Matt VanKouwenberg, and  Larissa Pahomov — to join us at Rembrandt’s Restaurant (aka SLA North) to reflect on ISTE and whatever else they wanted to talk about.

Enjoy the SLA students and Chris Lehmann’s speech in this video, check out his reflections, and listen to our conversation. Enjoy!

Chris Lehmann’s ISTE Keynote – Process and Impressions: I gave the closing keynote at ISTE on Wednesday, and it was a really wonderful experience. It’s an amazing thing to get up in front of 5,000 plus people and talk about what you deeply believe. It was particularly hard for two reasons – one, the ISTE community is as close to a “home-base” outside of SLA that I have in the world of education. There are so many people – too numerous to mention here – who have been friends, co-learners, mentors, sounding boards over the past six years that to speak in front of all of them in one place was both exhilarating and a little intimidating… and many of them had heard me speak at other events, so finding something new for that segment of the audience was a real challenge. But the real reason it was so hard to craft this speech was because I was preceded by my students. (Read the rest of this post on Practical Theory –

Teachers Teaching Teachers #185 – Did Educon 2.2 Make Us Smarter? – 02.03.10

On this podcast a few of us who attended Educon 2.2 reflect on our learning there. Appropriately enough, we were guided in this reflective conversation by:

On this podcast you’ll hear what four teachers, three of us from different Writing Projects, had to say just a few days after ther conference. You’ll hear from:

  • Paul Allison, New York City Writing Project
  • Joe Conroy, NWP at Rutgers University Writing Project (Don’t miss Joe’s video, below.)
  • Gail Desler, Area 3 Writing Project in Northern California
  • Dolores Gende, Academic Technology Coordinator and Physics teacher from Dallas, Texas

If you were at Educon, we hope you’ll be able to compare notes with us. If you were not able to make it, perhaps this podcast can suggest why there’s so much interest in Educon!

Here’s how the organizers of EduCon 2.2 describe the conference:

What is Educon?

EduCon 2.2 is both a conversation and a conference.

And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference. It is, hopefully, an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas — from the very practical to the big dreams.

The Axioms

Guiding Principles of EduCon 2.2

  1. Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members
  2. Our schools must be about co-creating — together with our students — the 21st Century Citizen
  3. Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around
  4. Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate
  5. Learning can — and must — be networked

It’s Elementary #28, Educon 2.1

educon2.1

It’s Elementary #28 was a preview of an upcoming conference, Educon2.1. The conference will be held in Philadelphia at the Science Leadership Academy. Chris Lehman, the principal at SLA, was on our show. Also on the show were SLA teachers Tim Best and Zac Chase. One of the innovative sessions will be a virtual session led by Julie Lindsay, Qatar, and Vicki Davis, Georgia. Vicki was on the show to preview her session, which will be a connection between Educon and the Flat Classroom Conference in Qatar. Vicki and Julie will both be in Qatar and connect virtually with Educon. This is modeling the very skills we want the children in our schools to exhibit. More information about our show is available at It’s Elementary on edublogs.

Women of Web 2.0 Show #63

This is the Super Administrator Show with guests Kelly Christopherson, principal of a K-12 school in Eston, Saskatchewan and Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Leadership Academy, a high school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Due to some audio and skype issues when we started, the formal show introduction occurs about 8 minutes into the audio.

 

The Women of Web 2.0 want to thank Maria for the wonderful job at last minute jumping to take the stream. It was her second show of the evening. Thanks Maria. Also, a big thanks to Kathy Shields for sitting in for Jen, while she is away on a sabbatical. Vicki was off for the evening with her family. Sharon held down the fort as moderator. Cheryl was in the chat room, as she was only able to listen from the Mountains. With the Women of Web 2.0, you just never know….. but it is always a great show! Thanks to the folks in the chat room and thanks to our guests. See you next week.
