On November 22, and the few days leading up to it, I was crazy busy posting links to this site as people blogged about reform for education. it was one of the most amazing things to watch as people just kept sharing and sharing their ideas for reform.
So, now it’s time to move beyond those words. . .Dave Britten, (aka @colonelB) has thrown down the gauntlet– and now we all need to participate in Blogging for Real Education Reform–the SEQUEL through sharing the ACTION STEPS we are taking to move towards our dreams and our visions. We need to all share the necessary steps we will be taking, (or already are taking), to move our work out of the factory model we have been living in for way too long! We need to show how we are stretching towards our ideals and our ideas and describe how we are acting to re-imagine education for our students, our children and our world.
Please read David’s post here–Blog 4 Real Education Reform – The Sequel–as his words are much more eloquent. . . and post your ACTION STEPS blog here–and we’ll compile them again so they can be found easily.
So, as David says,
“By January 1, each of us commits to blogging a contribution to our collective ACTION PLANfor re-tooling, re-inventing, and re-imagining what we’re going to do to turn the corner on 21st century learning. Let’s plan on posting our blog contributions during the week leading up to January 1, 2011 (between Christmas and New Years). This gives us plenty of time to think deeply about our own personal commitment to change and the actions we’ll need to take to influence others to do the same.”
Use the twitter hashtag #blog4reform, tweet out your post and also add the link in the comments here. I, for one, am really looking forward to reading the ways we’re working to change education for the future of our world.
