Karen Spencer set the scene by acknowledging the power of collegial sharing and networking online and off, at uLearn16. She then challenged us to think so what now and what will we do when we go back to school? Three key concepts permeated the keynote presentation; find the urgency, see the story behind the data, embrace discomfort.
In this keynote, Fullan outlined his more recent work that has emerged from his 2011 research dissemination on the “Wrong Drivers” for whole system reform and from his two more recent books, Stratosphere (Fullan) and Coherence (Fullan and Quinn). Fullan explained that he and his colleagues have worked from the bottom up over many years so that everything they write and design, is based not just on theory and research but also on their experiences.
Janelle Riki asked the hard, but important questions, how can we better engage Māori learners and whānau in future focused education? As our schools are transforming, how do we ensure our whānau and Māori students feel empowered?
