All members of Mayor Kellers task force are committed to improving Grand Citys educational system and community from the perspective representative of his or her institution, role, or specialized expertise. The Grand City community at large is excited about the work being done and proposed by the task force. News of the changes has been spreading throughout the state and garnering interest among leaders in many of the surrounding communities. How might you address questions or concerns from others looking to become agents of change? What insights have you gained in your work on the task force to encourage others to make decisions based on the data?
For this Assignment, you will develop a motivational video for communities outside of Grand City planning their own initiatives for change.
- Review the Cho et al. (2015) case study related to the installation of data systems in a school district. Consider how this example examines the challenges inherent in technological and organizational change.
- Review the Guidera (2015), Chenoweth (2015), and Marsh & Farrell (2015) articles. Think about the arguments for and against educational change based on data. How might you encourage others to support the use of data-informed decision making for educational and social change?
