Be kind to everyone you meet.
You may never see them again.

Write to be read - be better than you need to be!

 

Listen to this guy talk about the future of learning.

To prepare for the realities of the future workplace 

and the rapidly changing technological landscape, 

it is critical for educators to invite kids to get 

good at asking big questions that lead them on 

intellectual journeys to pursue answers, rather 

than only memorizing facts.

If your intention is to have students manifest their potential, you need to do more than 

stuff their heads with facts on the one hand, or provide them with unstructured freedom on the other. 

You need to provide students with appropriate guidance that motivates them to think and 

motivates them to create — an environment that supports their intellectual and creative efforts.

Most importantly… How much choice do students have in their learning? 

Do they have opportunities to explore and discover what’s out there, 

follow their passions and direct their own learning? Or do they only get to 

choose between the options their teachers present, in the same way that I was 

limited by my local supermarket? Have they discovered the honey flavour? 

What do they think of the lemon? Have they considered mixing flavours?
