ISTE's Special Interest Group for Administrators (SIGAdmin) sponsors an annual book study,  This year, the group selected World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students, by Dr. Yong Zhao.  After we'd finished reading and discussing the book, Dr. Zhao was kind enough to join us for a live question and answer session. 

Here's a sampling of questions posed to Dr. Zhao:

  • Are there any tests, current or future, that have any validity in improving teaching or learning?
  • Alternative school models tend to be small programs. Is that a necessity for this type of reform?
  • Do we need a "180 turn" in order to avoid the curriculum and creativity narrowing he documents so well in the book, or is tweaking the current model of schooling enough to promote the "entrepreneurial spirit?"
  • How can teachers themselves become entrepreneurs?

Hear Dr. Zhao's answers for yourself!
