Light Offerings

My proposal, My manifesto

Posted by jturner56 on August 1, 2008

There is much talk about the need for educational revolutions and for new directions.
You cannot have a Revolution by committing to MORE OF THE SAME.
A revolution requires commitments to change fundamentals. It is about the HUMAN SPIRIT and POTENTIAL.
A true Educational Revolution would involve real (not token) RESPECT, ENGAGEMENT, INCLUSION.
For those who are interested in a DIGITAL EDUCATION REVOLUTION
I believe what is needed and where I can assist such thinking is through facilitating

  • DIGITAL LEARNING CENTRES within a school for communication, support and online learning to cope with and add value for teachers, students and learning in a fast-changing environment
  • Independent and Responsible student learning valued through Web2 EPORTFOLIOS
  • Teacher Learning for all through the TEACHIT system
  • Developing PARTNERSHIPS FOR LEARNING to include students, families, teachers, schools and the wider communities (including business and bureaucratic support) that use global connections as one learning community
  • Preparing for the time where all students will be responsible for their own digital tools for learning

If you are interested in any of this and/or can provide an opportunity to make this happen please contact me
