Systems Thinking & Change - Call for Proposals - due Feb 1

Posted By Administration, Thursday, January 14, 2016

Have you created or designed something intended to change an education or learning organization from your work in K-12, university, industry or government settings? Are you frustrated, wanting to learn how great innovations can better impact education systems? If so, we’d like to see it in Las Vegas 2016.

Strong proposals will incorporate one of 3 major ideas:

1.) Interdisciplinary efforts, perhaps within and beyond educational technology domains to describe or interpret evidence from your efforts to lead or to create specific change in a technology-integrated organization (school, university or corporate). We want to hear about your intended or actual change impacts locally, regionally, nationally or internationally. What worked, what didn’t, and what has great promise?

Or

2.) Examples of systems thinking or change thinking embedded in creative new designs or developments for learning systems. This may include work from a variety of applications with a special emphasis on distance learning, instructional design, human performance, e-Learning environments, mobile technologies, emerging technologies, learning management systems, MOOCs or social media environments. We want to hear about how systems thinking informed your D&D work – impacting several parts of an education system.

Or

3.) New systems or change theories suggesting a creative a framework or schema for organizing further study of change and change leadership impacting education systems. We want to learn about new models and mindsets informing your complex work as a change leader, designer, developer, instructor or learner.

Deadline for proposal submissions is February 1, 2016.

For questions regarding proposals to the Division of Systems Thinking & Change please contact the 2016 Systems Thinking Program Chair: Dr. Eugene Kowch at ekowch@ucalgary.ca

A New Paradigm of Curriculum!

Posted By Charles Reigeluth, Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Marc Prensky wrote an article called, “The World Needs a New Curriculum,” in the July-Aug issue of Educational Technology.  This is the first case I have found where someone has developed a new paradigm of curriculum to accompany the new paradigm of instruction.  It is a fundamental restructuring of the curriculum K-12 and beyond, unlike the 21st century skills, which just add things onto the standard curriculum. 

 

The main subjects in the current curriculum are math, language arts, science, and social studies.  In contrast, the main subjects in Prensky's proposal are effective thinking, effective action, effective relationships, and effective accomplishments.  The sub-categories that Prensky offers for Effective Thinking include critical thinking, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, creative thinking, problem-solving, inquiry skills, argument skills, design thinking systems thinking, judgment, aesthetics, habits of mind, and self-knowledge of ones passions, strengths, and weaknesses.  The sub-categories for Effective Relationships include communication and collaboration (one-to-one, in teams, in a family, in a community, at work, and online), relationship-building, empathy, ethics, politics, citizenship, negotiation, and conflict resolution. 

 

You can readily see that many elements in the current curriculum will still be taught, but within a massive reorganization, and many new things will be taught.  This is very exciting stuff!  I strongly encourage all members of the Systemic Change Division to study this article!

New Book on Systemic Change: Reinventing Schools

Posted By Charles Reigeluth, Monday, July 22, 2013
I thought you might like to know that my book on paradigm change in education is finally out! It is called "Reinventing Schools: It's Time to Break the Mold." It is my first book for a general audience, costs less than $20, and it is my hope that it will spark some international interest in paradigm change and the important role that technology and instructional theory play in the new paradigm.

You can find information about it at www.reinventingschools.net.

Best wishes,

Charlie
