The Human Side of Changing Education

The Human Side of Changing Education

Make change humanly possible Today’s schools know they must make problem solving, collaboration, self-directed learning and creativity an integral part of the school’s DNA, but they don’t always know how. When we ask schools to change, we are asking human beings to change. This requires special tools and a human-centered approach. In The Human Side of Changing Education, leaders will learn to make sense of their challenging change journeys and accelerate effective implementation. With this practical framework that includes human-centered tools, resources and mini case studies, readers will learn to navigate and succeed on their unique path of change. Understand why resistance is to be expected and how to get through it. Discover three different kinds of change strategies and when to use which one Learn how to use the "messy middle" of change, where real transformation happens Change the heart of the system by enabling the hearts and minds of those who make schools work. "Julie Wilson is both a visionary and a pragmatist. Her book is a wonderfully clear and concise guide for leaders who seek to navigate the road to educational transformation." Tony Wagner, Author The Global Achievement Gap and Creating Innovators "If you want to understand what it takes to create innovative and lasting change, then forge ahead with The Human Side of Changing Education, and bravely create your own hero′s journey. This is a valuable guide, with practical advice and real-life examples to support you in this very complicated and challenging work." Ann Koufman-Frederick, Chief Academic Officer LearnLaunch Institute, MAPLE "If everyone working in U.S. K-12 education were to read this book and put even half of its thinking into practice, we would be well on our way to a far better society. It is timely, visionary, and relentlessly practical – a rare combination. Discover what our future could look like if enough of us dare to make it happen." Andy Calkins, Director Next Generation Learning Challenges at EDUCAUSE
