Changing schools can be scary
On the plane back from a delightful holiday in France, I saw this documentary. I knew about the school high tech high in San Diego and I follow Larry’s web page. I was also pleased to hear from famous educational visionaries like Tony Wagner, Sir Ken Robinson, Salman Khan, and Linda Darling-Hammond. The documentary stresses that this change is difficult and frightening for both students and teacher and that every school they visited was doing if differently. Many students and parents are skeptical as well. But arguably so, this would be a great documentary to show your staff and your students because however you view this, you are sure to have an opinion on the matter. And even if you can’t completely change your own school, you can certainly take elements from this and make it into your own. Talking about deeper learning, do we have a choice?
