    that have been brought up in with Will s post Here is a recent article that Gervase wrote which I think does a great job at outlining just what Appreciative Inquiry is G R Bushe 2007 Appreciative Inquiry is not about the Positive He talks about the generative nature of AI Generativity occurs when people collectively discover or create new things that they can use to positively alter their collective future AI is generative in a number of ways It is the quest for new ideas images theories and models that liberate our collective aspirations alter the social construction of reality and in the process make available decisions and actions that weren t available or didn t occur to us before When successful AI generates spontaneous unsupervised individual group and organizational action toward a better future If we were to design an appreciative change process for our school systems I think we could find our way to get there together It would begin with a conversation that has already begun not only in Will s post that I referenced above but in various places across the blogosphere on LeaderTalk on Scott Mcleod s blog Kevin Sandridge s Barbara Barreda s Miguel Ghulin s Justin Medved s Dennis Harter s Stephen Ransom s and many others Is anyone interested in continuing that conversation I d love to be part of the process with you Powered by ScribeFire Google Tracy Rosen 8 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Kevin Sandridge on August 17 2007 at 7 14 am Tracy thanks for bringing up this line of discussion I have to admit that I ve been swamped with getting the year started but will give your points some thought and get back to you with a substantive reply Tracy on August 18 2007 at 6 37 am You must be I know that the swampiness is on its way for me too I m looking forward to reading what you have to say Kevin By any chance do you work in the Vancouver school system If so do you know more about the work Gervase is involved in there dharter on August 22 2007 at 1 54 am It s why I blog to have this very conversation Thanks for including me Let s do it Tracy on August 23 2007 at 7 33 am Ok Dennis let s do it is right I m wondering in the work that you and Justin are doing on curriculum could we not add another strand of conversation around teacher support and invite others to join I think it would be important to connect the two What do you think Nancy Riffer on August 24 2007 at 7 33 pm I have studied Appreciative Inquiry with David Cooperrider in a workshop I m interested in joining the conversation I ve just started blogging on change in

  • Leading From The Heart » “Learning the way they’re living”
    said They re not learning the way they re living I tried to post a comment to this on Thinking Allowed but it somehow did not work so I ll comment here instead I think that Superintendent Frantz understands the big picture completely when he says They re not learning the way they are living This is true as a big idea and not only with regards to how or why technology is being used In Reading Don t Fix No Chevys by Michael Smith and Jeff Wilhelm they talk about how students boys are considered illiterate based on school standards but they do read for example manuals on Chevy fixing when it is purposeful and relevant to their lives What we need to do is find out what is relevant to their lives and make their learning in school as meaningful as possible based on that context by creating connections so they can learn the way they live As an educator that is what I am a connection maker between my students lives and the technologies I am teaching them to use laptops web 2 0 tools books whatever the technology is I need to make it relevant within their contexts not mine So yes throw laptops out the window BUT ONLY if you are not ready to show teachers how to make connections between their students and the technology because if a teacher can do that WOW you d be throwing a powerful learning tool out the window Powered by ScribeFire Google Tracy Rosen 4 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email dharter on July 31 2007 at 12 29 pm This idea is the fundamental principle that Justin
