I believe we have the answers to the problems we face. I believe in execution before ideation. In particular, I believe that working better together will take all us farther than each of us working harder alone. I am looking for innovation in the systems that enable collaboration. How can we stop looking to administration to communicate better and start just doing it ourselves. While being a teacher can sometimes feel like being on one of the lower rungs of society ladder, it is also true that we teachers have a tremendous amount of autonomy. What if we used that autonomy to simply start doing it differently - to stop asking for permission - to stop asking for others to change who will know will not - to start doing things differently - to share radically.
A wiki is a radical tool because it assume expertise and requires the agency of every member of the community. We each hold information that could make some one else more effective. A wiki is a place where our simple, daily responsibility to each other can be made real. A wiki is a cultural artifact.
A wiki is the place where no one needs to wait for permission, the place where our best guess - our first iteration - is valuable. A wiki is a place where being mostly right is useful because some one else knows the part that you don't.
I created the first version of this and feel as though I have made all the classic build-it-and-they-will-come mistakes. Teachers like the idea but the adoption is really rough. Behavior change, etc. I am eager to get the opinions of others.
