We are joined on this episode by Chris Sloan, Monika Hardy, Scott Shelhart, Mary Ann Reilly, Paul Allison, Ann Leaness, Pam Moran, and Heidi Hass Gable

Are you a Walk Out? Read these couple of paragraphs from the book and Web site, then come join us on Wednesday, 12.21.11 for a chat room at http://edtechtalk.com/live-ttt and watch the LiveStream.

ALSO - if you would like to join us in the Hangout soon, if you have read the book and would like to get in on the conversation directly, just let us know.

Inside dying systems, Walk Outs who Walk On are those few leaders who refuse to work from the dominant values that permeate the bureaucracy, such things as speed, greed, fear and aggression. They use their formal leadership to champion values and practices that respect people, that rely on people’s inherent motivation, creativity and caring to get quality work done. These leaders consciously create oases or protected areas within the bureaucracy where people can still contribute, protected from the disabling demands of the old system. These leaders are treasures. They’re dedicated, thoughtful revolutionaries who work hard to give birth to the new in very difficult circumstances.
And then there are those who leave the system entirely, eager to be free of all constraints to experiment with the future. You’ll read their stories in the next pages. But even though they might appear to have more freedom than those still inside, they encounter many challenges that restrict their actions. Old habits and ways of thinking constantly rear up on their path. It’s easy to get yanked backwards, or to doubt that this is the right direction. It takes vigilance to notice when these old ways of thinking block the path ahead.

On this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers we continue our conversations about Open Educational Resources (OER) with this amazing cast of wonderful teachers!

In particular we learned more about the P2PU [ http://p2pu.org/en ] course that Bud Hunt facilitated and Karen Fasimpaur helped organize: Writing and Common Core: Deeper Learning for All [ p2pu.org/en/groups/writing-common-core-deeper-learning-for-all

On his blog Bud wrote (a month ago): [ budtheteacher.com/blog/2011/10/31/on-being-still-in-a-motion-medium ]

I’m finding thatP2PU offers a fascinating space in which to operate. It’s a space with ethos but little structure. I’m building as I go. And wondering, from time to time, if this course meets my general metric for success in all that I do as a teacher – is it useful? Are people getting what they need from the course?

Enjoy! Also on this episode: Christina CantrillPaul OhKevin HodgsonScott ShelhartFred HaasPaul Allison, Harry Brake, and Chris Sloan.

 Here's how they describe their project at onedayonearth.org:

On November 11th, 11.11.11, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the second annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.
Founded in 2008, One Day on Earth's first mediattt271creation event occurred on 10.10.10. The collaboration was the first ever simultaneous filming event occuring in every country of the world. It created a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an upcoming feature film.
Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute to this unique global mosaic. One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.
