4 On behalf of the entire Graded School community, welcome to Innovate 2013: Re-Imagining School! We have purposefully framed this conference as the beginning of an important conversation in this region, one aimed at empowering educators to embrace a new type of learning paradigm that will better serve today s students for tomorrow. Graded School is honored and thrilled to serve as the host of this dialogue in South America. In My Pedagogic Creed (1897), John Dewey suggested that much of education fails because it conceives the school as a place where certain information is to be given, where certain lessons are to be learned, or where certain habits are to be formed. The concept of schooling, disappointedly, has not really changed that much from this relatively stagnant view of education from more than a century ago. Fortunately, there are bold, innovative pioneers who are paving the way with a new paradigm for this social institution called school, one in which learning experiences are dynamically and authentically interwoven into the educative process called life itself. You are a part of this wave of courageous educators just by being present at this conference. All of us at Graded applaud your commitment to this new and exciting dialogue. Once again, welcome to Innovate 2013! I look forward to our collective conversation at the conference and beyond. Lee Fertig Superintendent Graded School 4
