Video in Iowa shows little changed in schools since 1890

The world today is a much different place than it was 10 years ago, but Iowa schools haven’t adapted to ongoing changes. That’s the takeaway from a new Iowa Future video, “Iowa, did you know?”

The video, embedded below, highlights some of the changes that have taken place in Iowa and around the globe, and then contrasts those advances to what has happened with the state’s educational system.

Scott McLeod, an associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Kentucky and founding director of the UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leaders in Education (CASTLE), authored the video, which is based on the more general “Did you know?” series he helped create. McLeod blogs at Dangerously Irrelevant, and is considered a leading academic expert on K-12 school technology issues.

Iowa Future is a joint project of Iowa Area Education Agencies, the Iowa Association of School Boards, the Iowa Department of Education, the Iowa State Education Association and School Administrators of Iowa. It builds on work funded by The Wallace Foundation to strengthen the effectiveness of school leaders.

In addition to the video, the coalition has produced a discussion guide (PDF), which it hopes will spur conversations at all levels about the future of Iowa education and technology. The video premiered at this week’s School Administrators of Iowa Conference.

As McLeod writes on his own blog, “The video is aimed at Iowa policymakers, citizens and educators and is intended to help them feel a greater sense of urgency when it comes to changing our schools.

“Right now there’s a fair amount of complacency; the average Iowan isn’t coming to his or her school board or politician saying, ‘Hey, why aren’t you preparing my kids for this digital, global world we now live in?!’”
