MSD schedules eLearning Day for Friday

by Rob Burgess - rburgess@wabashplaindealer.com

Friday will be an eLearning Day for MSD students, but for staff members, it will be a day of enrichment.

MSD will welcome an international speaker, Dr. Bill Daggett, to present to staff members from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, according to a statement to the Plain Dealer from Mike Keaffaber, MSD superintendent.

“Due to the renovation at (Northfield Jr./Sr. High School and Southwood Jr./Sr. High School), we will be meeting at Bachelor Creek Church of Christ,” stated Keaffaber.

In the afternoon, Daggett will be meeting with the administrative team from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Crystal Room at the Honeywell Center.

“The morning session topic will be on the Rigor/Relevance Framework and the afternoon will be on leadership,” stated Keaffaber.

Daggett is the founder and chairman of the International Center for Leadership in Education and his System for Effective Instruction and Rigor/Relevance Framework are the cornerstones of many school improvement efforts throughout the United States, according to the group’s website.

“Thousands of school districts have sought Daggett’s guidance for planning and implementing systemic change,” stated the center.

Daggett has collaborated with education ministries in several countries, the Council of Chief State School Officers, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Governors Association and numerous national organizations. Daggett currently serves on the education advisory boards for NASA and USA Today. He is also the Founder and Chairman of the Successful Practices Network.

“Daggett’s powerful keynote messages help his audience challenge assumptions about the purposes, benefits, and effectiveness of current practices. Daggett inspires his listeners to embrace the greatest aspects of our education system and to make the necessary modifications required to meet the needs of all 21st-century learners,” stated the center.

Temple University and the State University of New York at Albany have recognized Daggett as a distinguished alumnus. He has authored numerous books about learning and education, textbooks, research studies, reports and journal articles.
