What is School?

What is school? And how does our impression of it change the way we teach?

In many people’s minds school was created to fuel an industrial age workforce, creating methodologies that honed marketable skills during an exciting time of change.  Today we are on the brink of another exciting time of change, The Information Age. How will teaching change to match the needs of a new world that emphasizes technology and communication?  
Join us Thursday, June 12 at 7pm EST as we explore the possibilities #whatisschool

We hope to create an unbiased forum where teachers can have voice in shaping the future by sharing their ideas, experiences and recommendations with other educators and interested persons around the world. The following TED talk by marketer Seth Godin provides a good perspective to start a conversation.
 

Here are the questions:

Q1) If someone asked you, “What is school,” what would you say? 

Q2) How is school changing for today’s students, teachers and parents?

Q3) What are some of the challenges modern educators face?

Q4)How can these challenges be overcome?

Q5) What is the impact of technology on literacy and creativity?

Q6) How have you integrated technology into your lessons?
Q7) If you could change one thing about school what would it be?

Q8) What is your biggest roadblock to change or should school not change at all?

Q9) What is the most crucial skill teachers need today?

Q10) If you could create the school of your dreams, what would it be like?

    Love the idea Craig, but won’t be there. Have class at the time. Sometimes you can never win. Maybe some other time.

    It’s no wonder you will host your own chat. Congrats! Not sure I can make it. With young kiddos, that’s a tough time. But I will surely read the archives (if posted) and will try to jump in at some point. Excited for you!
