“While the edtech glitterati nurse their hangovers from SXSWedu next week, Chief Technology Officers, Instructional Technology Directors and Superintendents will meet at the 17th annual Consortium for School Networking’s (CoSN) conference. This year, CoSN will bring together 900 district tech leaders to Atlanta to talk shop over mobile technology, personalized learning, data and privacy, and the new kid on the edtech buzzword block: Deeper Learning.

In Australia, relentless debates over education, arguments over curriculum and disputes about funding models could easily leave observers convinced the sky isn’t far off falling down.
Some of the bad news is true. But the good news is that, with the right strategies in place and some persistence, education systems can not only stave off doom but can, in fact, make substantial progress.
Filmed at the Building Learning Communities conference in Boston, Michael talks about the role of the principal and the three strategies they need to practice to move forward. Fullan says that for principals to have impact they need to participate as lead learners, contribute as system players, and develop push and pull skills to be effective change agents.
In this interview with Anthony Salcito, Michael talks about his new work with Greg Butler and New Pedagogies for Deep Learning.
NPDL is a global initiative launched by Fullan and Greg Butler, in partnership with Microsoft and number of other partners. The goal was to recruit 10 clusters of 100 schools to “identify, apply and diffuse new pedagogies for deep learning accelerated by technology.” In other words: create a global education reform movement.

Nesta recently published a report I did with Katelyn Donnelly called Alive in the Swamp, Assessing Digital Innovations in Education.
Alive in the Swamp provides an actionable guide to learning technology that will allow founders, funders, and teachers to make better decisions. It identifies persistent gaps in innovation activity and points to what needs to be done if we are to finally make good on the promise of technology to transform learning.
Michael Fullan may be coming soon to a school district near you.
The man credited with transforming the Canadian province of Ontario into one of the world’s most effective school systems is ready to help California do the same. Fullan, though, would lead the state in a sharply different direction from the forced march that federal officials in Washington, D.C., have led over the past decade.
“I want California to become an alternative model to No Child Left Behind; that would be a great thing to aspire to,” Fullan said last month during an interview in Sacramento.
