Hello colleagues. I am asking for audio/video input if you are willing to provide it - and ideally it might be as a Jing (http://www.jingproject.com
) or some other vehicle so there is a video/audio component. Unfortunately there is a pretty short deadline.
The presentation is before a group of decision makers/educators from all 50 states on the topic of deep personalization - defined by KnowledgeWorks in their Map of the future http://www.kwfdn.org/map/
as "More people reject mass product and service offerings, including education, engaging in do-it-yourself projects." (Note this is a result of brainstorming they did to identify major trends.) They also identified participatory pedagogy and personalized learning plans as ways for educators to address deep personalization - and see standardization as a big dilemma.
This is obviously all about Web 2.0 now at least as there is no tool that enables personalization on a large scale like Web 2.0.
If you are willing to address any of these ideas in a short video or Jing session can you let me know?
I think one of the things that can come of this is for these decision makers to really hear what teachers are doing around these overarching ideas, how the dilemma is playing out, how we are reaching out to students in this world of open-ended possibilities.
Thanks so much for any ideas.
