    • Who Owns the Learning? ~ Voices and Choices Accelerates Engagement, Ownership and Results
    Perhaps the most important understanding for adults is that students are volunteers, whether we want them to be or not. Their compliance can be insisted on, but their attention, investment, engagement and commitment is under their own control. ~ Schelcty

    for Greatness and Unleashing Potential
    What are we pretending not to know? Even knowing that the future aches for a new kind of learner, thinker, and problem-solver, all the dollars and time spent on techno gadgets still have changed little more than pockets of classrooms for kids. We need to seek higher ground for our visions and our results. Each generation of young people becomes an investment in the only future we will have - how can we escalate the reshaping of learning NOW!
    • Who Owns the Learning? ~ Voices and Choices Accelerates Engagement, Ownership and Results
    Perhaps the most important understanding for adults is that students are volunteers, whether we want them to be or not. Their compliance can be insisted on, but their attention, investment, engagement and commitment is under their own control. ~ Schelcty
    Here's a BFO [Blinding Flash of the Obvious] - teachers don't drive instruction and learning. Students do! Over and over studies are revealing the same pattern - an estimated 77% of students are disengaged and unmotivated. Compliance learning with standardized "one-size" fits all content, tasks, and assessments, delivers the lowest common denominator of possibility. This loss can be recovered through nurturing a school wide "voices and choices" approach or "learner agency" culture. For educators ready to tap into the power of engagement, ownership and school-wide accelerated results, consider implementing doable strategies that transition teachers from managing learning to unleashing the power of self-managed learning without compromising mastery of essential standards. When we choose for ourselves, we are far more committed to the outcome–by a factor of five to one. ~ Harvard Review. Who doesn't want that!

A Future Search process builds understanding, commitment and ownership along with energizing large-scale commitment towards collaboratively re-setting cultures to align with new stories of possibilities.For anything that matters the timing is never quite right, the resources always a little short, and the people less ready than needed to shift gears. Starting with a compelling, widely, co-created vision resets the culture while affirming commitment and participation in something worthy even when we do not know HOW to get to where we want to go – YET!

    "The DigiTales Storytelling Camp is a cross between a writer's workshop and a movie-making symposium. It opened the door to a multimedia format of storytelling that will motivate kids to create in ways that were never possible before now; telling stories that need to be told." Jim Gallatin, IL.
