This presentation was made to BRSU boards in May/June of 2012. The purpose of the presentation is to provide an instructional vision for our districts based on our work over the last 5 years in understanding the new, technological context for teaching and learning. Based on this collective work, I have concluded our organization’s instructional systems should be organized around two design principles:
- Personalized learning for each student; and
- Teachers and other educators should be connected in a common professional network to support instructional innovation. The theory behind this concept comes from Education Epidemic by David Hargreaves.
