Charles Sosnik | 03/31/2010

I met David Houle through my friend Darryl Rosser, CEO of Sagus International. David is one of our nation’s leading futurists. In addition to writing books and delivering keynote speeches, David advises Fortune 500 companies about the future and how to prepare for it.    In his past life as a media executive, he was on the team that launched MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1 and CNN Headline News. He also helped to create two television series on A&E for his client Bill Kurtis, Investigative Reports  and  American Justice , introducing single subject documentaries and legal programming to prime time before those programming concepts became common pla...

Math Moments with Maggie WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE. What You Say Makes All The Difference

Maggie Martin Connell | 03/31/2010

There is a certain hurley-burley in education these days as the urgency to correct the math problem heightens. The search for a remedy is acute as research points to the need to make meaning — curricula are reshaped and programs are rewritten — all important changes. But equally important are those smaller shifts we can all make in daily practice. One of those shifts is in the way we make (or break) meaning, by the words we choose to talk about the math we see. You see, here’s the thing, in our quest to make it easier for our students, we sometimes use bad language. We give them ‘non-sense’ rules and terms to memorize, we expect them to s... Read More...

Helping Students Graduate BUILDING GLOBAL ECONOMIES. From the Schoolhouse to the Workplace

Franklin Schargel | 03/31/2010

Schools need to be globally competitive, just as businesses are.  We have come to recognize that Coca Cola is a global company, and you can buy a McDonald’s hamburger all over the world. Faxes, cell phones and the Internet have freed industrial firms from geographic boundaries. Toyota can build cars as easily in Evansville, Indiana as it can in Japan. Motorola can assemble pagers as easily in Singapore as it does in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Look at the label of any “American product.” General Motors makes cars in Canada and Korea as well as the United States. I.B.M. makes some of its computers in Mexico as well as the Far East. Pitney Bo... Read More...

Problem Solved PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. Your Fastest Fix for Serious Student Behavior Problems

Ruth Herman Wells, M.S | 03/31/2010

That is by far the most common comment I hear from teachers, counselors, and principals who contact us for professional development. I’ve heard this comment so much that I sometimes joke that educator training seems to prepare teachers to work with Beaver Cleaver, but Beavis and Butthead keep showing up. Throughout the country, educators report seeing growing numbers of uncontrollable students, who present increasingly serious behavior problems that are unresponsive to conventional interventions.

America’s Future in Global Education

DAVID HOULE | 03/31/2010

Those of you reading these words clearly know that we are living in the 21st century. The calendar clearly shows this to be the year 2010. What many of you may not know is that we are also in transition from one age to another. We are leaving the Information Age and entering the Shift Age. We are therefore in one of those times in human history when there is a coincidence of two major transitions. When these rare times of passage occur humanity is transformed. We therefore have, are, will and must enter a time of educational transformation in the United States. In the last two millennia there have been three times where, in a matter of 50... Read More...

Teacher Preparation and Global Competitiveness: Forging the Link

DR. JANE BAILEY | 03/31/2010

The global market is becoming increasingly diverse as more countries clamor for a seat at the world’s economic table. America’s head chair position is being elbowed by the goods and services being brought by new competitors who offer huge and talented workforces, willing to work for low wages to prove their capabilities and get a larger piece of the economic pie. If America is to maintain a seat at the table, let alone keep its head seat, we must prepare our students to bring competitive skills to this new world market. We’ve heard this cry for globally competitive skills so often now it has become trite. It’s time for action to replace word... Read More...

Lessons from Modern Germany Impressions of the Transatlantic Outreach Program

DR. PAUL DICKLER | 03/31/2010

For Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOP) participants, the real mission is to find the real Germany and bring it home to their classrooms!  Guten Tag! Germany might seem to lend itself to many generalizations, but a closer look reveals the complexity of this land and its people. Order, efficiency, and diligence, it is true, are closely associated with Germany. However, after a TOP experience in Germany, one will come away with a greater appreciation for the difficulty in generalizing. It seems that a large part of the German population is on vacation, just returned from vacation, or about to go on vacation. Read More...
