Book Description

This product consists of two books combined together. PLC 2.0: Collaborating for Observable Impact in Today’s Schools and the PLC 2.0 Toolkit: Tools and Protocols for Observable Impact. Schools across the globe have invested time, effort and resources into creating collaboration time. And while the research on educators collaborating to examine and improve their practice is clear, the practice of educators working together and the impact this has on changing the learning experience for students is less conclusive. PLC 2.0 moves districts and schools beyond research to PRACTICE and OBSERVABLE IMPACT–the type of impact that we can observe in our classrooms. This book will take all educators through the various aspects of the PLC 2.0 Observable Impact Model, provide them with practical tools and protocols developed to enhance their collaborative time, and make them leaving confident their collaborative time is finally making an observable difference within classrooms, buildings and school districts!

Cale Brik

 

Cale Birkis the co-author of “Changing Change Using Learner- Centered Design” and District Head of Innovation in British Columbia, one of the highest achieving educational jurisdictions in the world. As a former teacher and high school Principal, Cale uses cross-industry innovation and his model of learner-centered design (LCD) to work with leaders in schools and districts in Canada, the United States, Australia and Asia to compel and inspire classroom, school and district leaders in the K-12 education system to re-imagine the experience of school and ‘change the experience of change’. Guided by the principles of design, user-experience, project-based learning, Instructional Rounds and Agile Schools, Cale constantly pushes leaders to ask themselves “Would I want to learn this in this way?” so we can change the experience of change for students, educators, and parents in the K-12 system.
