Inspirational PISD convocation kicks off school year

Date: Wednesday, August 24, 2011
news@murphymonitor.com

 Plano ISD Superintendent Dr.  Doug Otto based his convocation speech on the 2011-’12 theme “Learning by Design.”


To illustrate the theme, Otto said, “Designers see the world differently than the rest of us. They’re constantly deconstructing and rebuilding objects and ideas that most of us accept as static and fixed. What if the same were true for the learning process of our students and staff? What if we reinvented how knowledge is passed along?”

Otto asked employees if they are “ready to reinvent, redesign and reshape the learning experience for students and teachers.”
“Learning by design implies paying attention to the little things that make learning personal for students or any of us as learners. This is a time of transition from who we are to who we want to be. We need to be poised to re-imagine the story,” Otto said. “We are moving from using a floodlight to illuminate the fact that all of us are learners, to using a spotlight to provide intense insight into what each child needs to maximize learning.”

Plano ISD’s 7,000 faculty and staff members attended the back-to-school employee convocation held Aug. 16 at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano. The event featured student speakers, community participants and performances by the staff band and choir. The seminar was sponsored by The  Heart Hospital Baylor Plano and Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano.
