Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Perhaps the most urgent issue in education today is preparing our children for their future rather than our past. Yet the biggest challenge isn't changing the students -- they're already in the 21st century -- but updating the attitudes of the adults who are in charge. Take a page -- take whole chapters! -- from this book and get started today."

- Dan Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

 

 

"Kay and Greenhill have written the most important education book I have read in a long time. The authors have worked with some of the country's best education leaders and so truly understand the change process in schools. The Leader's Guide is a wonderfully practical and resource-rich guide for bringing K-12 teaching and learning into the 21st century. It should be at the very top of every educator and policymaker's 'must-read list.' "

- Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators  

 

 

"This is a must-read for all education leaders aspiring to help their students succeed in the 21st Century. Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill bring forward a compelling case for transformation in our schools and an inspiring message to leaders who are facing a increasingly challenging policy and financial obstacles. More importantly, the book presents meaningful and practical guidance for actions in schools drawn from broad experiences working with developing and implementing 21st Century Education."

- Yong Zhao, Ph. D, Presidential Chair and Associate Dean, University of Oregon, Author of Catching Up or Leading the Way: American Education in the Age of Globalization

 

 

"Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill have provided an invaluable contribution to the education reform movement by articulating a step by step guide designed to assist district leaders interested in creating 21st century education school systems. With practical examples and specific guidelines delineating the practices of high performing systems, this book lays out a concrete vision and roadmap for delivering the educational outcomes that our children will need for success in 21st century work and civic life."

-- Barbara Chow, Program Director, Education Program, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

 

 

"Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill have taken on a most valuable challenge – to help schools and districts create concrete steps to a 21st century education system. They accentuate the need to build support from the community and the key education stake holders. They underscore the critical importance of supporting teachers in this work. Their book is a “must read” for any education leader that is working to assure that their school or district is really preparing their students for the challenges of 21st century citizenship and the 21st century workforce."

- Linda Darling Hammond, Charles Ducommun Professor of Education; Co-Director School Redesign Network (SRN), Stanford University

 

 

"We, as educators, need to align what we are doing with what the changing world is demanding. Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill of Ed Leader 21, have identified seven steps that support the creation of relevant, 21st century schools and districts. While implementation of these steps may not be linear, they provide a solid framework for shifting the paradigm. The descriptions of these steps clearly inform us of the complexity and depth required to prepare students for futures unknown, because of the changing world. Part of the “unknown” is brought into view with real examples from the trailblazers engaged in this work. Pay attention. This is an important and urgent message."

-  Karen Aka, Chief Academic Officer, Academy21 

 

 

“Kay and Greenhill have amassed a huge amount of material on 21st century teaching and learning and put it into a clear, readable, user-friendly format. This book is more than a "guide," it is the ultimate blueprint for realizing transformation in our schools.  Outlining what it will take to lead, guide, nurture and implement the 4C’s (critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity) through teaching and learning in our schools --  it is a must read for education leaders striving to develop 21st century learners.

 

I am especially pleased that school board members around the country (many of whom have been active proponents of 21st century education) will be able to leverage this valuable resource to help move their districts forward.”

- Anne L. Bryant, Executive Director, NSBA 

 

 

 

"As a nation, we have an opportunity to incorporate the Common Core with the 21st Century skills necessary for all students to succeed. Ken and Valerie have taken the last decade of their work to create a compelling framework for us all to follow. The framework and processes outlined in this book create a toolkit for leading 21st Century learning in your school district and community. Their suggested processes apply the 4Cs - creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking - to help you create a 21st Century school district supported by a 21st Century community. They urge us to use the 4 C's to create the 4 C's. Following the seven steps outlined in the book will enable us to demonstrate the leadership and direction in education that this nation desperately needs."

- Jack Dale, Superintendent, Fairfax County Public Schools

 

 

“We need young people who are effective problem solvers,” declare Kay and Greenhill, students who know “how to apply the knowledge they have to contexts [with which] they may not be familiar.” The Leaders Guide to 21st Century Education offers a framework for re-creating education in our schools to prepare our students for life in the 21st century.  Using roadmaps, real life stories and lessons learned, this book skillfully leads educators through such thickets as accountability, resistance to change, and the false dichotomy posed between teaching skills and teaching content.  An important and welcome addition to a crucial discussion taking place in education today!”

- Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director, American Association of School Administrators

 

 

"The Education’s Leaders Guide is a terrific resource for educators prepared to make the substantive changes essential to improving our schools. The authors recognize that providing students with 21st Century Skills will require educators to become deeply engaged in the collective inquiry, consensus building, collaborative efforts, action research, and shared learning essential to the process of continuous improvement. Kay and Greenhill don’t provide a quick-fix program or easy answers. They instead offer something far more valuable — insights into the important questions educators must consider if they are to meet the needs of contemporary students. The Education Leader’s Guide makes an important contribution to the school-improvement literature, and I highly recommend it."

- Rick DuFour, Educational Author and Consultant

 

 

"District leaders who want to prepare their students for success in the future must embrace 21st Century learning. But what IS 21st Century learning, how can district leaders assess where they are, where they need to go, and what they should do when they “get there?” Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill’s book provides that roadmap and more. In addition to providing a seven-step model for success, it also highlights best practices across the country, and provides opportunities for growth and reflection during the journey."

- Cathy Gassenheimer, Exec. VP, Alabama Best Practices Center, A+ Education Partnership

 

 

"Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill offer exceptional advice for transforming schools for 21st century learning. Leaders at all levels will find tremendous guidance on their path toward educational success for all students. This book recognizes the essential role of professional learning communities in preparing adults and students for the 21st century. It is practical, powerful, and inspirational."

- Stephanie Hirsch, Executive Director, LearningForward (formerly National Staff Development Council)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Step by step guide to 21st Century school change 8 août 2012
Par M. Lang - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ken Kay was the leader for many years of the Partnership for 21st Century skills. This is a consortium led by big business (about ten years old) that has done some of the most thorough work to identify changes in what we need from education in the 21st Century economy. This book is a step by step guide for school leaders who want to move their districts in the direction of adopting new skills such as those in the framework developed by the Partnership. The steps will be familiar to any change agent. We are instructed to begin by developing a vision of what the school will look like if the changes are made or where we want to go. We are then led to add capacity with professional development activities and related changes in school culture and process that will take time to implement. The advice is all good and well presented. The book also includes a very extensive list of references spread throughout the chapters and in the appendices.

The guidance here is written around a vision based on what the Partnership calls the four Cs: creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. However, as the book mentions, the guidance on the change process works for any similar vision of 21st Century skills and education.

The only thing to note is that innovation or creative problem solving is really not addressed. Frankly, innovation has come to be recognized as the most important 21st Century skill in the last 2-3 years. However, it was only peripherally addressed by the Partnership's framework since it had not obtained the prominence at the time that work was done, and so it is largely missing from the guidance in this book, also. The effective teaching of innovation requires even more systemic change and professional development than the other 21st Century skills. One will not get much about innovation and related culture and instructional changes from this book or from the great body of references. At the same time, the change process steps are still pretty much relevant. Other than missing the innovation component, this book is a very comprehensive, easy to follow guide that is highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-read for school district leaders who are serious about reform 17 juillet 2012
Par Merianne Liteman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read several books on education reform and none offered as clear a blueprint for making change that will help students and schools succeed and ensure that American businesses have greater access to the kinds of critical thinking skills that are essential in a globally-competitive marketplace.

Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill have clearly done their research and offer encouraging stories of districts that have made profound changes based on the seven steps that are outlined in their book. These steps start with the all important question of specifically "What is the change you want to be leading?" Then it's important to have a depth of community input and support for that change. Then, it's time for the hard look at the district current teaching and learning structures to strengthen those that support the change and modify those that hamper it. Step 4 focuses on ensuring adequate and meaningful professional development for students, Step 5 looks at changing the curriculum and assessment tools to support the desired direction. Step 6 looks at how to partner with teachers, rather than making "bad teachers" the problem. And Step 7 is about the culture change that is necessary to support ongoing innovation.

In addition, every step is interwoven with the 4 Cs - critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity as skills for administrators, teachers, and students as well as areas for reflection that will help readers navigate that step successfully.

In short, I cannot imagine that anyone who is serious about giving our students the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century would want to attempt reform without this book.
