Arrived in the big Apple!
I am wondering and curious what this journey will bring me. A beautiful opportunity to meet (foreign and SAAM) colleagues and talk/inspire about education.
Education is a never ending story of evolution. As a professional, you are always looking to create the best for children and their future. What an opportunity is created by SAAM to ensure their employees get inspired for the CES-principles.
What an opportunity to develop myself!
I set myself tree goals to concrete my development:
1 Which goals do teachers give themselve and others preparing the lessons/themes?
2 What about the assessment for learning. Are children capable to show, on their own prepared way, wat they have learned and how they became better in it? How does / Does a school Judge this? Are parents part of this assessment?
3 In wich ways do teachers reflect themselves and others? What is the role of the principal/management during this cooperation?
By blogging, I will inform about my development and goals. Changing education is difficult. It needs inspiration and inspirators. After this trip I hope to be inspired and that I will become the inspirator. I will end with a dutch quote which says it is difficult to change the system:
“Nieuwe ideeën ontwikkelen is niet moeilijk. Ontsnappen aan de oude wel.”
