1:30 pm --Implementing the Change: Steps to Building Momentum

Preparing students for the 21st Century calls for collective action of all stakeholders. Together our cohort community will look at the steps needed to build momentum and garner buy-in from the entire school community.

I. Introductions and a quick setting of context
II. Have a facilitated discussion on barriers and restraints to managing change and shift in schools. What is preventing us from being successful at implementing changeChoose a scribe
- Introduce yourself and then in round robin style address the prompt provided in 1-2 min depending on the number of learners in your group.
- Discussion will be scribed but no attribution will be made.
- Be as honest as possible.

III. Using the Post IT notes and working as individuals, jot down at least 5 ideas that are proactive solutions to overcoming a barrier or restraint reculturing schools around 21st Century change. Only put 1 idea per note. You could also list innovative ideas you have for how to implement the needed change. Be creative. Think out of the box. (10 min)

IV. Working in pairs, talk together about your ideas and chunk them together under emerging categories such as: (Time, Community, Professional Development) (15 min)

V. Make sure we have all the content areas represented on the charts. Then put the sticky notes on the corresponding chart.

VI. Using the dots, choose a category you are most passionate about developing. (What you see as greatest need area) (5-7 min)

VII. Get in groups and then read and organize all the ideas represented on your chart. Then discuss to see if any group member has additional ideas to add. Talk about ideas that create excitement in the group.

VIII. After analyzing and synthesizing the ideas represented work together as a group to wordsmith 5 action statements around implementation of your category. In many cases you can chunk ideas you are passionate about together when crafting your action statements.
