Leading Change? Start By Talking About What You Value

By Beth Rabbit, Chief Executive Officer of the Learning Accelerator

As any great leader pursuing innovation in education knows, having a clear “why” for pursuing the “what” of change is critical to success. But equally important, often less emphasized, and incredibly hard is the “how” of making and managing that change in a classroom, school, or system.



A Superintendent's Quest To Marry Equity & Personalized Learning

By Peter Olson-Skog, Superintendent & Jessica Anderson

Equity and Personalized Learning share quite a bit of common ground. They each require an ongoing commitment from all stakeholders. Both are built on the premise that each person’s needs are unique, and both recognize that no one set of tools and responses will support everyone. Peter Olson-Skog is drawing these connections concretely through his work as Superintendent at District 197 in West St. Paul. We recently interviewed Peter Olson-Skog to learn more about how he connects equity and personalized learning in his district.



Feedback For Every Teacher To Boost Student Engagement

By Jamie Poskin of TeachFX and S. David Brazer of Stanford University  

Take a look inside a high school physics teacher’s classroom. In her fifth year, Ms. Valdez is popular with nearly all of her students. They appreciate her energy and sense of humor. Her ambition is to engender in her students the enthusiasm for and wonder about physics that motivated her to devote her career to teaching the subject. She has told you that she wants to teach her students to think like physicists. Unfortunately, your observation reveals that Ms. Valdez is far from her goal.
