Using Technology to Move Michigan Toward a Knowledge Economy


April 25, 2011
12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Kellogg Center, MSU

This session continues the theme selected by this year's fellows on transforming Michigan's economy from a manufacturing-based to a knowledge-based economy.  This session focuses on the role technology can play in teaching and learning and in the policy cycle.

 


From the past two groups, we’ve heard presentations that have focused on Michigan’s shift toward a knowledge-based economy from international, federal, and state perspectives and from the perspectives of stakeholders. For this session, we want to focus more closely on one of the primary reasons driving this shift towards a knowledge-based economy and what we believe is one of  the primary tools Michigan can use to catch up in this race to educate—technology. Rather than spending our time presenting an argument that technology is driving the shift from the industrial age to the information age, (which we believe you can read in Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat or glean from Daniel Pink’s A Whole New Mind among many others options), we’d like to invest our time in digging more deeply into two fundamental questions:

1)  How do we best leverage new technologies including mobile computing devices and web-based technologies to accelerate students’ learning and develop the 21st Century skill necessary to compete in a knowledge-based economy?

2) As we move through this period, as we implement changes and reform, how do we collect and utilize technology and data to monitor and inform the effectiveness of educational practices and policies?

For this presentation, EPFP fellows bring the following:

  1. 1. A copy of their (a) school/district/institution’s technology policy (such as Acceptable Use Policy, Board Policy, or other Technology Guideline Documents).
  2. 2. A laptop or tablet computer that is able to connect to the Internet.

Leveraging Expertise, Relationships, and Leadership

through Technology, Risk-Taking, and Critical Conversations


May 9, 2011
12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Kellogg Center, MSU

This learning team session looks at a central issue in the important work of preparing students for the knowledge economy of the 21st century: how do people overcome real or perceived obstacles to make connections and influence policy decisions?

 

 

Our presentation will model specific ways in which leaders can leverage three key resources to shape, drive, and direct policy.  These intangible but invaluable resources are expertise, relationships, and leadership.  As we will show, these resources can be brought to bear on policy in many spheres through a combination of technology, risk-taking, and crucial conversations.

As will be defined by our project, expertise is knowledge and experience about how to bring about change.  Many policy leaders see expertise in other organizations, but may not know how to tap into that expertise to benefit their own organization.  Relationships are interdependent connections between individuals and teams that can pool organizational capacity.  Many policy leaders depend on relationships to find out information or to broker cooperation, but these leaders also know the importance of exploring new relationships, refining existing ones, and guarding against stagnation.  Leadership is the exercise of decision-making power within an organization toward an agenda.  Many policy leaders wield this naturally but sometimes assume that their leadership has a limit, and thus fail to recognize how to “borrow” the leadership of those with even more power.

Often, an obstacle to gaining access to these resources is the simple assumption that those who possess them will not share them.  However, the “big block of cheese day” is itself a model of bridging the phantom gap that exists between those who have these resources and those that need it to effect policy change.  Can we take the risk to ask for access?  Can we use technology to remove obstacles of distance and time?  Do we have the courage to build trust and develop relationships?
