This podcast is a recording of my keynote address at the TechForum Southwest conference sponsored by Technology and Learning on November 2, 2007. Schools need to change to better prepare students for the dynamic challenges and opportunities of the 21st century “flat world” highlighted by Tom Friedman in his book “The World is Flat.” The $1 million question is, “How?” In this session we’ll address practical ways educational leaders are supporting a constructive agenda for cultural change in schools using digital technologies as catalysts, levers, and amplifiers. Blogging, digital storytelling, social networking, and collaborative document authoring can play powerful roles in reshaping learning cultures while developing critical learner literacies mandated by the ISTE NETS. Differentiated strategies for supporting cultural learning change for teachers ranging from innovators/early adopters to late majority/laggards will be highlighted and explored. Together, we can “invent the future.”
