Experience Matters

Recently, I was asked to speak to the Department for Education and Child Development in South Australia, and they asked me for some advice to give to schools.  What I felt was important to share was the notion of educators “experiencing” the type of learning that we talk about in their own professional learning.  It is hard for anyone to change until they feel something different.  Below is the short excerpt from my interview.

For more from this day, you can check out the entire playlist from my interviews as well as others.  I really liked the idea of taking these short interviews (theirs, not mine) and using them as discussion starters with staff.

  3. Good stuff. I have always thought it a bit ironic when we model for our teachers the exact opposite of what we ask of them…thanks for sharing!
