The main points of that is vision, skills, incentive, resources, action plan, and change and when one of these are left out the equalence will not work in education. Dr Villa final point is how do we know if we have arrive? From this the audience made a list of the following: by the culture, cultue of caring, character counts, culture of collabration.

1. If we do reach our arrival, then what?

I think we can improve on the way we have made our arrival. There is always room to make improvement. Just because we have arrived with equalence does not mean we can do better. With education is always changing, so there are improvements to be made. Just like Dr. Villa points out that the culture is what make the equalence work.

They are the following help the student fit in a culture, have good work ethics, help the student fulfill their dreams, positive esteem, eager to learn, well rounded in a work environment. If we can help a student achieve this then we have a done our part to help a student out.

The New Gold Rush: Establishing Effective Online Learning Policies
Learning & Leading with Technology, September/October 2007, Pg13-16

The online learning has grown very rapidly in both a bad and a good way. The online learning is to give a student the potential of delivering education any time and anywhere. However, the down side of this is a way to replace the traditional of education in a classroom setting. To make sure this does not happen is to have both face to face and online learning in the classroom. Just like in the program of the Laguna Department of Education partner for Success in New Mexico are appealing to have this part of there educational system. Within the article there is a rubric of how this would work.

1. Does Online-learning hurt the classroom setting?

I do not think so, because you are still learning the subject that you are taking. You can take you time when doing the assignments and if you have any question you still can ask by the teacher or the students.

2. Does online learning help the students?

I think not because for me I learn better face to face then online. I think the student would be lazy and wait for the last minute to do any of the assignments. Plus you do not have that quality time with the teacher. Face to face is great way to make a good impression

Educational Crowdsourcing: Learning & leading with Technology Nov 07

What is crowdsourcing? According to the article it is to a process that draws on the talents of a diverse group to accomplish a task or goal. In a way it is an outside source that is helping, but not really. What is meet by this is by using the crowdsourcing to a task or problem to a crowds. Most of the company do use the crowdsourcing if it benefits them. The is now more commen to have the crowdsourcing to be use in the educational setting. More and more academic researching is using this form.

1. How would crowdsourcing be useful in educational setting?

I think that by having the outside sources helping the educational system improve varies activities or programs. To get the outside source to give ideas of what can improve or not improve. Plus it is not a bias opinion if someone outside educational setting. The person would not have an advantage of being negative to one program to another.

2. Who would be the diverse group that would be part of crowdsourcing?

I think no matter what the group it is, it would give helpful ideas. If the educational system does need an opinion on a certain program. It is best get if from people of varies diverse group.
