Thanks for your podcast, JD! I agree that the most vital was the construction of the questions most around your focal question as well as the strategic questions for end users. It is quite difficult to write and revisit questions that are both specific enough to inform your research as well as sufficiently open to allow for true responses.
I appreciate that your approach would be a social justice one. It seems like you took into consideration the current practices of your site and saw room for growth.
"The school of tomorrow"... wonderfully written. It does sound like your action steps blend into your vision. How will students learn to value diverse perspectives and viewpoints? (Students will engage in community outreach to interact with diverse populations and learn about social justice.) We need to ensure that teachers have clear actionable approaches so that they know exactly what is expected, but also have room for flexibility. I love the the aspect of culture building that "we are all apart of the problem and potentially the solution."
I agree that the collaboration can be present, but if there isn't choice or voice options, it may not be truly student-centric. I appreciate your conscientiousness around how information and knowledge is gained. This truly can only be gauged through teacher self-reflection and observations. Environments can look "techy" but the true learning through technology is a harder aspect to evaluate.
Thank you, JD!
