No, this doesn't have anything to do with rowdy kids. It's about the game-changing innovations in education that people such as Michael Horn predict will radically alter schools, especially high schools. http://www.michaelbhorn.com/
I recently went to a keynote talk he gave to an Education Week tech conference in NJ. He is predicting that about half of all high school courses will be on line, by 2019. He is also making the case that on line learning may be the only consistent way to avoid the reduction in service that will follow the end of the federal stimulus monies.
One of my roles is that of district online learning coordinator. I have found that the organizational skills I employ as a Teacher Librarian have make it possible to run this program.
I would be curious to know if others share my beliefs that Horn is basically correct and that Teacher Librarians could view this trend as an opportunity to lead their schools into the future?
