NCATE Clinic 2011: Nancy Zimpher

This video is being shared in cooperation with NCATE.

This video clip features Nancy Zimpher, Chancellor, State University of New York and Co-chair of the NCATE Blue Ribbon Panel on Clinical Preparation and Partnerships for Improved Student Learning, making a brief address at a gathering of the NCATE State Alliance for Clinical Preparation. Nancy provides an overview of the NCATE Blue Ribbon Panel and states that the education of teachers in the United States needs to be turned upside down. She advocates that to prepare effective teachers for 21st century classrooms, teacher preparation must shift away from an emphasis on academic preparation and course work that is loosely linked to school-based experiences. Dr. Zimpher describes the need to establish programs that implement clinically based programs that provide clinical practice that are interwoven with academic content and professional courses.

Leadership Matters: A Call to Action

In the companion executive video to the The Principal Story for policymakers, Gene Wilhoit, Executive Director, Council of Chief State School Officers, engages with other policymakers and district leaders in a discussion about developing strong leaders in the Leadership Matters: A Call to Action video, and tells us: "there are direct responsibilities that states have to support leadership development. Every state must step back and evaluate the kind of support - or the lack of support - they've given." Clearly, this message is especially pertinent right now as we learn how to build systems for fair and equitable principal evaluation.

Sugata Mitra

Sugata Mitra has been experimenting for years to discover what children can and will teach themselves in the absence of adult direction and supervision. His most audacious research question: "Can Tamil-speaking 12-year-old children in a South India village teach themselves biotechnology, in English, on their own?" He wouldn't be talking about it on a Ted Talk if his findings answered, NO.. If, as Mitra claims, self-organized learning is so effective, should we /how do we change teaching practices and school policies to allow students to engage in more self-directed learning?
