Reflections and Learnings from the 2015 AASA Conference

Dwight Jones, Discovery Education Network, Mar 07, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good set of reflections from a recent conference identifying some recent trends. Quoted:

  • The focus on professional development is stronger than ever.
  • School systems are looking to share their work.
  • The need to engage a wide range of stakeholders in the digital transition.
  • School districts of all sizes are finding the funds to make the shift from hardcover textbooks to digital curricula.

As I said to someone last week in Riyadh, the future is slow. We think things should change instantly, but they never do. It takes a long time. You have to look for things like this, indicators of steady progress, rather than sudden change.
