Consumption vs Creativity

Dean and Steve dive into a rich conversation about the spectrum of creation. Is the technology in our schools active or passive? Is it a set and get or do we put low floor, high ceiling technology opportunities in front of our students? These questions get mulled around as we talk about the relationship between knowledge transfer and knowledge creation. We explore the power of using deconstruction to explore everydaycomplexity and how this exploration leads to increased curiosity. Deconstructing everyday items and systems helps students to see how parts interact with other parts and the complexity of the interactions between them. This helps students to find areas where there is friction and helps them become better at problem finding. This conversation then leads us to a conversation on information and sensory overload. How are we shutting off in an age of information abundance? We finish off our great chat with a discussion on how might create online learning opportunities that cr...

Consumption vs Creativity

Networking, PLNs and Design Thinking

Where have we been? Steve begins by sharing the behind the scenes of the new University Campus at Ivanhoe. Year 9 is traditionally recognised as the year where students provide the most challenges in terms of disengagement, behaviour, and lack of direction. But is Year 8 the new Year 9? Dean and Steve talk about how their collective schools approach this challenge. Design thinking pops up again (it does in every episode!) and Dean reflects on his human-centred approach to learning and schooling after appearing at the Leadership Exchange. Networking is a key factor in this approach and Dean and Steve talk about their respective network development journeys. The lone genius is a myth as the greatest ideas of our time have come from people bouncing off each other. Dean proposes 5 key stages of networking from his own experience. Stages of networking Reach out Twitter - Twitter chats, hashtags, following thought leaders. LinkedIn Blog - evolve thinking Giving more - connect with people ...

Networking, PLNs and Design Thinking

Taking the time to be offline

In our first real episode for 2018, we revisit the importance of offline time and switching off. This is always a challenge when work is something you are incredibly passionate about. How do we develop good work habits when the lines are blurred so much? We explore the third space, a concept developed by Adam Fraser designed to help people transfer better between work and space. We once again circle back on time tracking and managing our time. We explore the value of what to measure when tracking time. Steve explains his tracking of interruptions and the use of reticular activation to intentionally manage his focus and habits. We talk about the books we read and those that just couldn’t bring ourselves to read (#blurredlines). This leads to a rich discussion on real evidence of learning and design thinking as a mental model. Student centred learning features as Dean explores his school’s new Inspire Me curriculum and the removal of the curriculum safety net. Shownotes Dr. Adam Fra...
