A conversation about confronting change with +Eric Nentrup, including some of the obstacles that get in the way. +Getting Smart #innovation #dtk12chat #caedchat #endowmenteffect
Confront change is difficult in education. A latin teacher and an EdTech professional square off on strategies for confronting change.

I'm really interested in creating a prototype for an xDay, on which we'd work on our own #20time projects together. +XPLANE has been successfully using them and thus provides a model for us to use. How might we adapt this model for a school or district #xDay? What features should the system offer to engage educators? Would love to hear feedback on +The Teachers Guild! #reimaginePD #dtk12chat #caedchat #isedchat
How might we apply the "20%-time" model for community professional development? XPLANE's "xDay" may be a great model.

Sharing "What if...?" videos within a community to support a culture of innovation. +The Teachers Guild   #dare2design   #googleEDU   #dtk12chat   #caedchat  
What if we posed regular "What if...?" or "How might we...?" questions to our community and recorded answers to share in assemblies?

Loved the book Thanks for the Feedback, which describes how we should effectively receive feedback for professional growth. Based on the ideas in the book, I'm interested in creating better systems of feedback in schools with +The Teachers Guild, with a focus on coaching systems. Would love to hear from others about experiences with feedback, both good and bad. What works and why? How might we scale it up? #reimaginePD #dtk12chat #caedchat #isedchat

How might we inspire this kind of radical collaboration within our communities, in which collaborators "choose to do the “hard” work? Would love to discuss on +The Teachers Guild#dare2design   #FromIdeasToAction   #googleEDU   #dtk12chat   #caedchat   #isedchat  
Hear from two teachers who are choosing to do the work together, even when it’s harder or takes longer

I think either you have a colaborating spirit or not...part of each individual's nature.

Get creative with the "30 Circles" activity. We'd love to see what you come up with on +The Teachers Guild   #dare2design   #googleEDU   #FromIdeasToAction   #dtk12chat   #caedchat   #isedchat  
The "30 Circles" activity is a great way to jumpstart creative thinking.
