To Tackle New Problems, We're Going to Need New Solutions
Davidovich, Robert
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n2 p42-45 Apr 2011
More and more, the educators this author works with recognize that schools will need to become different, not just better, to help students meet the challenges of the future. These educators are trying to respond to an imperative to innovate as well as improve. The depth of change required to move from creating improvement to fostering innovation is great. District leaders have found that a change in perspective about professional learning can help their schools shift the focus from improvement to innovation. A synergistic combination of three concepts--information, identity, and networked relationships--is reshaping how things get done today. A better understanding of the dynamics created by these concepts can have a profound impact on transforming professional learning and, as a result, student achievement.
