The Path to 21st Century Learning can be Challenging!
Innovative 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Adrian Bertolini | February 18th, 2012 @ 10:20PM | 0 Comments
For those of you who are new to this blog, we spend a lot of time working with teachers and schools at the fore-front of shifting their school learning culture and their pedagogy. This week we had an revealing experience with one of the schools we are working with. It is early days in this school and the individual is receiving push back by internal (students, certain staff, etc) and external...

Opinions, Beliefs and the Importance of Context
Innovative 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Adrian Bertolini | February 9th, 2012 @ 12:18AM | 0 Comments
The following is an except from my book Exceptional that will be published later this year. For those of you who are first time readers - welcome. For those of you who are constant readers - welcome back for 2012! Everyone has an opinion about education. I do. You do. Kids do. Parents do. Grandparents do. Teachers do. Politicians do. The media does. Radio shock jocks do. Billionaires do. There...

Finding Harvey
News and Thoughts | Susan Einhorn | January 11th, 2012 @ 10:16AM | 0 Comments
I’ve recently taken part in an interesting collaborative effort in which I reviewed a number of articles about schools trying to make fundamental changes in how, where, and for what reason learning happens in their communities. The ones that were most successfully progressing were the ones that took a big picture approach, looking at every aspect of school and community life to understand the...

Researching What for Why?
Bruce Dixon | November 9th, 2011 @ 11:57AM | 0 Comments
I enjoy research. I spend much of my time reading it. I also often find myself in sustained and vigorous conversations with colleagues from some of the leading research institutions from around the world...and it's time that I value very much. Indeed, the Foundation maintains a register of some of the leading research around 1-to-1 on our site....however, I am also sick and tried of the...

Defining 1:1--More Than a Snappy Punchline
News and Thoughts | Susan Einhorn | November 9th, 2011 @ 11:55AM | 0 Comments
We live in an age of sound bites, elevator pitches, and Powerpoint bullets. And because of this, we live in an age of confusion. No wonder it is so difficult achieving a cohesive vision for learning and teaching or ever hoping to scale it. As soon as we introduce a word that seems to capture the power, the completeness of the change in learning that technology can catalyze, we begin to use it...

Building High Performance Schools - Structures and Non-Negotiables
Innovative 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Adrian Bertolini | October 19th, 2011 @ 9:09PM | 0 Comments
This past week of visiting a range of schools has reinforced my perception about the critical importance of structures and non-negotiables in creating a powerful learning and working environment. In everything we do as individuals we have habitual ways of operating, thinking, and organising ourselves. They are so habitual that we are unconscious to them. In fact, it is just part of how our...

Printing help?
Jeff Mayhew | October 3rd, 2011 @ 2:07PM | 0 Comments
What method do you suggest for printing using Anytime Anywhere Learning? We have many laptops with students changing rooms, and we only want them to use the printer in the room they are in.

Growth Mindset and School Cultural Change
Innovative 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Adrian Bertolini | September 14th, 2011 @ 10:00PM | 0 Comments
Recently I wrote a reply to a school who was asking me about Growth mindsets as a school philosophy and also how to go about framing the need for school cultural change. While I was writing it I realised how critical what I was writing was for many schools. As such I have included it for all of you. I would love any thoughts you have. Do you know of a ‘template’ or model for a...

Whatever Happened To The Revolution?
Bruce Dixon | September 14th, 2011 @ 12:56PM | 2 Comments
After having the luxury of spending several days attending sessions at three recent conferences in three countries, I am overcome by how little time is being spent on the real issues I feel we should be addressing. Despite all protestations, most of the sessions that I attend are perennially focused on either the ‘technology’; to wit… the ‘pocket-electronic-whiteboards’,or ‘ipad...

Bring Your Own What, and Why?
Bruce Dixon | July 13th, 2011 @ 5:36PM | 3 Comments
At several recent conferences at which I have been speaking, there has been a lot of interest in the concept of students bringing their own computers, laptops, technology or devices…depending on how you like your acronym. I think it warrants further discussion. On the surface it would seem natural that this is something AALF would fully support, and, in broad principle, of course we do. Our...
