The Future(S) Of Education Project

  1. 1. Using participant actions to fuel change
  2. 2. The purpose of this slide presentation is to engender interest from others: <ul><li>General folks anywhere in the world concerned with the future of education </li></ul><ul><li>People expert in “viral” ideas </li></ul><ul><li>People with open source experience </li></ul><ul><li>Students </li></ul><ul><li>Educators </li></ul><ul><li>Sponsors </li></ul>
  3. 3. What we know works: <ul><li>Small groups of people using this process to build local actions to solve complex problems </li></ul>Participatory Action Research demonstrates success in helping individuals address complex adaptive issues.
  4. 4. Where have we seen PAR work: <ul><li>During the Web Based Professional Development Project from 2003 – 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Over 150 individual participants across 15 states in the U.S. studied and developed local solutions to issues related to homelessness and high mobility in schools. </li></ul><ul><li>Conservatively affecting the educational environment for 23,000 students over the course of the beginning of the project until now </li></ul>
  5. 5. Results <ul><li>For the schools: We received community support for our toughest issues </li></ul><ul><li>For the educators: This project has changed the way I teach, the way I look at education, forever </li></ul><ul><li>For the students: Compared to a standard curricular growth (measured in lexiles) of 75 for the school year, students with stable housing improved 200, students experiencing homelessness averaged 300 </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Future(s) of Education Project’s Goals <ul><li>Seed and connect participatory groups all over the world </li></ul><ul><li>Bring a world voice (teacher, administrator, student and parent voices) to the question of what form should education take in the world </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitate participants’ ability to put action to their ideas and as both smaller and larger groups measure the results </li></ul><ul><li>Broadcast and replicate results </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Future(s) of Education project is based on the idea that no one alive today knows much about how education will develop over the next two decades. <ul><li>Systems as we know them are weakening if not essentially defunct </li></ul><ul><li>Emerging new models for education are hampered by the control of institutions by professionals who grew up under old paradigms </li></ul><ul><li>The roles of virtual worlds, social networks, and proprietary free content, and the role of the classroom is changing education </li></ul><ul><li>How these technologies and ideas will play out in different parts of the international community is as yet only imagined </li></ul>
  8. 8. Local people paired with researchers and experts in technology, education, anthropology, etc. working as equals to take this issue to the next level and beyond. “ Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead ~ This project believes in today's ‘ world those groups networked and communicating can change the future.
  9. 9. What the WBPD project did not do <ul><li>It didn’t take off, spread, or “go viral” </li></ul><ul><li>It never received interest or support from higher than a state level authority </li></ul><ul><li>It didn’t find a way to sustain itself </li></ul>
  10. 10. Your interest can give this project a different result <ul><li>If you like the idea pass it on to everyone you know who may be interested </li></ul><ul><li>Email ideas, comments , suggestions and offers for participation or resources to: </li></ul><ul><li>E. Alana James, Ed.D. </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Kinsale, Co Cork, Ireland </li></ul>
