    1. we desperately need our public institutions to be commons: to be those places where we come together to (learn to) cooperate in the stewardship of our mutual resources. If our public institutions are not operating as commons, than they are also no longer effectively bringing us together as citizens

      This is such an important relationship. I don't think it applies only to ideas and written resources, but to preservation of our environment, to energy use and to social welfare as well.

    1. The transformative view is that learning is a social process, with students and teachers working in partnership with each other and with experts beyond school, supported by digital technologies. In the transformative view, collaboration, creativity, innovation, entrepreneurial know-how, and ethical citizenship infuse teaching and learning. Students and teachers co-design their work. The learning environment, which extends beyond the classroom, is purposefully designed for students to think, research, analyze, develop and improve their ideas, and demonstrate deep understanding through the work they produce
    2. This paper proposes a shift away from hierarchical policy-driven systems toward networks of strong, responsive schools, with educators collaborating continuously and sharing knowledge both horizontally and vertically. In these transformed systems, leaders at the top empower leadership at all levels, resulting in schools and classrooms that are holistic and adaptive.

      This requires a different kind of leadership. Not everything will work, and leaders need to be comfortable with (authentically) learning from failure. Not accepting failure, but also not punishing failure. We always want our students to learn from failure, but I don't think we allow ourselves to take risks necessary to be truly transformative.

    3. Change is inevitable: transformation is possible.

      I love this quote... potential from inevitability
