Dynamism is the word we are using to encapsulate dispositionary learning or the infusion of dispositions into every day learning students do at school, in their work and through their class lessons. The learning of dispositions is increasingly critical in todays classroom. With the dawn of the 21st Century, content and skills while still being relevant are increasingly being overshadowed by the importance of dispositions. Curious, Creative, Investigative, Active, Goal-Driven, Self-Directed, Collaborative and Motivated learners are what we are hoping to see come out of our schools. These are the qualities we so admire in leaders like Steve Jobs and Sergei Brin. So why not teach them, promote them, provide an environment that enhances them. The world of tomorrow is as much about who you are as what you know or can do. Welcome to Dynamism!

Old School vs Bold SchoolBold schools are places of questions, not answers. Whenmuch of what we currently think is important for ourstudents to know is just a few taps on a phone or a Googlesearch away, our central mission cant be to deliver andtest for content mastery.Instead, it must be to develop deep dispositions forlearning by supporting sustained inquiry into both thecontent and context of whatever subject students aretackling.http://www.districtadministration.com/article/are-you-old-school-or-bold-school 11.
