Key messages for school leaders…

David Warlick’s blog is always worth reading, and sometimes quoting. I like his list of key messages for school leaders along the lines of ‘if I had 30 minutes with a group of school leaders my key message would be’ …

  • Respect & pay attention to the kids
  • Give learners a voice
  • Hire learners to teach
  • Seize “almost” every opportunity to replace books with digital content (ouch)
  • Pursue 1:1 carefully, but urgently
  • Support the infrastructure
  • Make sure that the tech staff works for the teachers
  • The best thing we can teach our children today, is how to teach themselves
  • When you visit the school, be happy when you see learning.  Be suspicious when you see too much teaching.

Couldn’t agree more, though number four is always a push. Read the full text of his post HERE
