Do you know what the Toronto Emergency Safe Schools Strategy (TESSS)
is? If your child’s school is placed in a “Hold And Secure” or a “Lockdown”
in Toronto, Ontario Canada, do you know what that means? Do you know where
to check to get up-to-date information about about a school lockdown or
Hold and Secure? Is your school registered yet? You can do so by e-mailing

iPhone and iPad Are Key Modern Day Tools For Educatiors

Chances are your children are safe and the police and school staff are
working in a coordinated effort. To learn more, read on and check out the
enclosed two presentations by Toronto police officers, who have been
dealing with these school safety issues for many years.
All your questions pertaining to an emerging school emergency are now
posted in the social streams on the official Toronto Police Service
website, http://TorontoPolice.on.ca.

You can also learn many up-to-date pieces of information about
connecting with the police and school-safety specialists at a school
near you in Toronto at this link: http://SchoolActionTeams.com

On August 11, 2011, Staff Sergeant Sharon Davis of the Toronto Police
Service Community Mobilization Unit, a specialist in school-police
protocol issues co-presented a workshop on school safety with
Constable Scott Mills @GraffitiBMXCop | @TorontoPolice Toronto Police
Service Corporate Communications Social Media Officer to school
administrators at the Associated Hebrew Schools, 252 Finch Av E,
Toronto, Ontario Canada.

The two officers were invited to present by Ruth Markel, a management
consultant who had diligently prepared for the workshop, after being
referred to Sharon and Scott by Eric Roher @ERoher a lawyer
specializing in Internet issues, and legal counsel for a number of
school boards.

It was a unique perspective having the two officers speak, as both
come from very different perspectives. Sharon is a specialist on
school protocol procedures relating to lockdowns, “hold and secure”
situations, threat assessment and many more issues relating to school
safety… with the exception of social media..

Scott is very passionate about using relationships and technology, in
particular social media, to prevent violence. Together, the two
officers present the “left brain and the right brain” for school
safety.

To say the least, at this event ‘old school’ philosophy was colliding
with ‘new school’ philosophy in back to back talks. The question
became.. would these school administrators see any value in any of the
information that either officer had to offer.

It turns out that perspectives did collide this day and the end
product was a very balanced and fact filled talk, that hopefully will
go a long way to enhance community safety in the family of Associated
Hebrew Schools, and beyond.

For the first time, Sharon’s excellent school lockdown and ‘hold and
secure’ safety points were live tweeted by Scott..effectively
education others far from the ear shot of the presenter. The official
version of what exactly a ‘Lockdown’ is compared to a ‘Hold and
Secure’ were being tweeted by Scott as Sharon spoke. .. Online people
were listening.. and re-tweeting! The Toronto District School Board
social media coordinator TJ Goertz @TJGoertz | @TDSB_Official quickly
re-tweeted the information to his vast network of educators online.

Here is a snapshot of what the tweets looked like that day. All the
tweets and facebook posts were live feeding to the home page of the
Toronto Police official website, a brand new version of the website
thanks to a team of dedicated, in house Toronto Police staff members
led by Pedja, our brilliant webmaster. A number of the school
administrators in attendance were following the social stream on their
personal smartphones and ipads. It was evident that social media and
school safety were colliding, and a cultural revolution was underway
in that room!

Here is what the tweets looked like:

[#140edu] Back To School Special: Videos from #140edu

With Labor Day approaching and the beginning of school upon us, I’ve been looking back at our recent #140edu, and how something very special took place at the 92nd Street Y back on August 2nd and 3rd.

I wanted to share the experience with the videos captured with the worldwide #140conf community.

During #140edu about 400 people joined us in the audience while at the same time, the event was seen on 19,693 unique computers around the world.

I thank Chris Lehmann for helping to co-host the conference, his help in encouraging some of his friends to speak at the conference and his continued support of #140edu. I also thank everyone who came to #140edu and shared their ideas on our stage and from the audience.

#140edu will return to New York City at the 92nd Street Y on July 31st / August 1st, 2012.

I hope you enjoy watching these talks and find them to be as inspiring as I did.

Best regards, Jeff

Opening Doors to 21st Century Learning

The template for K-12 education in this country persists at using an industrial/agrarian model that is long past useful and relevant. We’ll talk about how a diverse suburban public school district has worked to upend and disrupt a legacy of tracking and low expectations into one that is focused on equity, access, rigor and adaptability. And how we are retooling policies and practices to develop high level critical thinking skills needed for the 21st Century — for all students at all ability levels.

Connecting School Life to Real Life
If school should be preparing young people for the world, why does the world behind school doors look so different from the world outside those doors.

When do school systems, tv and society suck the creativity out of our children? As early as kingergarten?

Launching the Learning Career- The Critical Period of Years 0 to 3:? Although we don’t expect to see a 6 month old tweeting anytime soon, there are a host of PostPC era tools emerging – from touch screen to motion sensing to 3D interfaces – that make the digital world accessible to toddlers. Parents, as well as their toddlers, should be using these tools to better understand and support their babies as they transform from a relatively helpless newborn to a fully competent walking, talking, problem-solving 3 year old. There is no more important 3 year period in anyone’s learning career.

Less talking. More Doing
Public education is the biggest Fail Whale of our generation and we are all to blame. Our Federal and State governments have dropped the ball. People with financial means have fled to private schools. And Silicon Valley has not succeeded in any technical innovation. The current public dialog is filled with divisive finger pointing and circuitous debate. Yet there still is no roadmap for change. We don’t have to be victims of this dysfunction. Education is an inherently local issue and we all have the power to rise up, organize and transform our schools for the 21st century.

Cheating Students: Can the Real-Time Web Create Truth-Telling in the Humanities? Issues of cheating and privacy are at the forefront of professors’ concerns about social media in higher education (Pearson Social Media Study, 2011). Our lack of trust is systemic. Engagement is so minimal listening to students is rarely allowed. Classroom conversation is often limited to the last 5-10 mins of a 75-minute class. With over 18 million students currently enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities, how can professors justify the mission of producing great citizens, future professionals and great human beings with a 44% dropout rate? That’s nearly 8 million people. Facebook, alone, has more than 750 million active users as of Jan 2011. Here, I’ll share how my participation on Twitter, along with other real-time web tools, helped me cultivate an environment for truth-telling and making a difference in my anthropology and racism courses. Twitter is a sharer’s market and it (along with other real-time web tools like Skype and Facebook) has taught me more about how professors cheat students when we don’t listen to them as adults rather than protecting some abstract “privacy” or answer key.

Using Games to Deliver Motivation for Learning
Many people talk about “gamification” for education, but I think that oftentimes the idea (and the products) get developed without a real focus on *why* we might implement game mechanics over educational content. This talk is about the ways that games can serve to provide a context for delivering motivation. Within a game, we have concrete definitions for reward, competition, collaboration — and there are specific mini-goals that build up to a larger achievement. All of these things, if implemented correctly, can mesh with educational content to motivate and engage kids to learn the content. In an ideal implementation, this is a “deep integration,” rather than a discrete layer that’s painted over what is essentially a set of flashcards. Throughout my talk I’ll give examples of software that does it well — pulling from my company’s own creations, my competitors’ work, and historical examples.

Beer Parties and Math: Teaching Math so students GET IT! The reason that we are now #34 in the world in mathematics has nothing to do with our kids. It has a lot do to with who is teaching the mathematics, and how the information is being communicated – actually NOT communicated.

The Education Bubble There’s a massive Education Bubble that’s brewing, with people coming out of college $100-200K in debt, prepared for a world that not longer exists, with degrees not worth the paper its printed on. Then there’s the DIY and self-education movement, especially for entrepreneurs and creatives who are continuing to reinvent the playing field of their careers as they go along. Not to mention a $6 billion self-help industry and growing. Which is why online education is also blowing up. Social media is a force for self-learning if not self-actualization…exploring the process of identity formation, creative voice, and self-definition.
