  2. Follow Along A note about accessibility before I begin. If

    you would like to follow along with the written version of this talk, you can visit http://bit.ly/TESS18. That link will also have the images on the slide deck with embedded descriptions for your screen reader, if you want to check those out later.
  3. Toronto is in the “Dish With One Spoon Territory.” The

    Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers, have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. I would like to begin by purposefully acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of these Indigenous peoples: of the Wendat, the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.
  4. Raise your hand if in the last four years… •

    Had family member or close friend die? • Suffered a significant physical illness or injury? • Been challenged by anxiety or depression or other mental illness? • Had trouble meeting work expectations due to a learning or physical disability? • Had trouble paying an important bill? • Had to care for a family member unexpectedly? • Had second thoughts about a career or life path? • Discovered a surprising new passion or interest?

  21. “Our approach isn’t full of jargon or just about the

    numbers. People are at the center of everything we do. While we believe the right technology and better data can empower better learning—we know technology and data are only part of the equation. We empower institutions to engage educators and learners with better data to demonstrate and improve institutional effectiveness, program quality, and student learning.”
  22. Praxis Disruption

  23. “I don’t even know why we study history. It’s entertaining,

    I guess. But what already happened doesn’t really matter. You don’t need to know that history to build on what they made. In technology, all that matters is tomorrow.” Anthony Levandowski, Tech Bro

  25. The solution is sold to us but the vendors frame

    the problems to conform to market-driven fixes. Humans become data points, without contexts or histories.
  26. Learn Scale

  27. “Scale is as much a qualitative as a quantitative problem.

    Barriers to effective implementation include the difficulty of designing innovations that are usable for teachers who have modest professional knowledge and few common professional standards, the difficulty of addressing weaknesses of capability, and the difficulty of devising means to manage the environment and support implementation. To solve the problem of ‘scaling up’ requires ‘scaling in’ –by this we mean developing the designs and infrastructure needed to support effective use of an innovation. That, in turn, requires consideration of the problems that have made some sorts of innovation difficult, and taking these into account in deciding what to change, and how to design the means to do so. It also requires significant attention to designing the use of innovations by practitioners, in the environments in which they work.” David K. Cohen and Deborah Loewenberg Ball
  28. I can’t believe I am coining this word, sorry Innovation

    • Focuses on solutions (products, outputs) • Favors disruption (cult of the new) • Covets scale (bias toward the quantitative) Huminnovation • Focuses on access (process, ecosystem) • Favors praxis (iteration and historical context) • Values learning (bias toward the critical)
  29. How beautiful would it be if our humanity wasn't an

    impediment to learning, but its heartbeat?
