After you are done ask yourself if this is going to change they way you teach learners, reach learners, and connect with learners. Take a look at The Great 8 Catalytic Questions and the SlideShare below.
The Great 8 Catalytic Questions
1. Your learners are creators of content not just consumers or your content. How does that change things for you?
2. Your learners expect to share their ideas with others and have others share their ideas with them. How are you creating opportunities for your learners to share?
3. The social circle of your learners is a path of teaching. Their circle is bigger than the classroom and bigger than the school. It may include people from all points on the globe. How are you accounting for this network? How can you leverage it for greater teaching and learning?
4. If you have any sort of digital footprint, it is very likely that your students have seen parts of or your entire digital footprint. How are you preparing your self for educational brand management? How will you interact with students online outside of the classroom?
5. Connections are the "new currency" of the 21st Century. How are you preparing your students to thoughtfully build, manage, and leverage this "new currency?"
6. Your learners do not view the educational establishment as the only means of teaching. Their network is a means of teaching. There is a shift away from the classroom to the Open Model of Education. How are you preparing yourself for this disruptive shift in education?
7. You are a filter. Are you filtering information for your learners and teaching them to do the same, or are you blocking information from your learners and showing them you don't trust them or understand their world?
8. Do you see now that you are more important than ever? The network needs you. Your learners need you. What are you doing to equip yourself to be there for them?
