In our work in education — both K-12 and higher education — “change” often is seen as a single noun, not a verb. Many of the organizations we deal with characterize and discuss change as a single event to “get through” to the other side.
This is a case of “cobblers children have no shoes.” We teach about the changing worlds, but assume that the change happens to others or happens once. Educational organizations often are not designed as “learning organizations,” as organizations designed to grow and iterate.
Since 2009, Maremel has created both change processes for educational organizations and reflective learning modules. We’ve also spoken at a variety of events on changes happening — or not happening — in educational organizations that embrace the potential of connected technologies.
