A must read for school leaders and all educators at any stage in their careers. At a time when spoon-feeding content no longer makes it, Marc Isseks gives us both the big picture and the small steps that it will take to truly motivate today's learners. This lively and engaging read will have you smiling with recognition and nodding in agreement at the the need to chuck rote activities like the dreaded Do Now or the uninspiring Aim question in exchange for bold new ways of thinking about teaching and learning. -- Karen Bronson, Director of Professional Development, School Administrators Association of New York State
FORWARD FAST reminds us that technology should not drive our instruction, but rather, should enhance the way we present our topics. Those topics, however, need to change to adapt to an ever changing world. We can't just teach the way we always did and we certainly can't teach what we always taught! -- Gina M. Cartolano, Principal, Great Neck South Middle School, Great Neck School District
For years, educators and school organizations have studied how data-driven pedagogy impacts student learning. Isseks lays bare the counter narrative to that analysis with the impact that technology integration has had on our students, teachers, and school communities. We now live in a beta world. What we see today may be far different from last week. With the fast pace in which technology has brought about positive change, we are finally placing the focus on learning and from there, deciding on sound pedagogy. -- Ed Kemnitzer, Director of Technology, Innovation, and Information Services, East Williston UFSD, Recipient of 2017 Long Island Technology and Education Summit Visionary Award
Living and learning in this current technological revolution is not about devices and programs, but the ability to personalize instruction more than any other time in history. FORWARD FAST amplifies the call to action for educators to prepare students to be producers rather than consumers in this unprecedented age. -- Joseph Castoro, Assistant Principal, Oldfield Middle School, Harborfields Central School District, Recipient of 2018 Long Island Technology and Education Summit Visionary Award
