Viva la revolution

Posted on: August 8, 2018

Yesterday, an ex-colleague reminded me of a quote attributed to Roy Pea in 2011.

We need revolutionary transformation, not evolutionary tinkering. -- Roy Pea.

In the context of educational change and embracing technology, he said: We need revolutionary transformation, not evolutionary tinkering. (I found the source and it is mentioned twice in this NETP report.)

Evolutionary tinkering might be likened to piecemeal change. This can create short returns, but can come across as busy work that is not particularly meaningful.

Revolutionary transformation is often uncomfortable and messy, but it can also be organised chaos that actually makes a difference in the long run.

We need only be students of recent history to see why revolutions change policies, processes, and people.
