A Ghost of Your Children’s Future

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 03:14:12 +0000

There are moments we live that remind us just how very quickly time lets itself pass us by. Moments where we wish we could reach out and pull against the unbending second hand to slow its persistent sweep around the clock. I was rocking my daughter to sleep last night, and I was struck with […]

The Paradoxes of Education Innovation

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 04:20:48 +0000

Innovation is a beautifully romanticized notion. It brings to mind thoughts of amazing individuals like Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, and Marie Curie who so daringly defied and displaced the status quo. And therein lies the problem. Because statistically speaking, the majority of us are the status quo. And the status quo rarely enjoys being displaced. […]

Technology as an Amplifier

Sun, 15 Feb 2015 20:30:19 +0000

In recent decades, there has existed in education the question, “Why technology?” The question itself is a rather good one if posed with genuine inquiry that seeks to find and actualize the potential that exists when technology meets learning. Yet there are times when the question is asked with a different spirit. The question is […]

The Stories of CCSD59

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 03:36:08 +0000

I’ve been doing a very bad job at a very important part of my job lately. Our students, staff, and community continue to do amazing work, and I haven’t been sharing the incredible efforts they have been producing nearly enough. See the video above as an example of what our staff and students have been […]

The Space Between: Where our roles as teachers change lives and learning

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 02:03:06 +0000

It’s been difficult for me to stop thinking about this piece by Seymour Papert. Specifically, I keep coming back to his three phases of intellectual development. He admittedly oversimplifies the development by containing it in three categories, but even in this somewhat rudimentary manifestation, it still gives us as much to think about as we […]

21st Century Leadership Academy

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 20:26:26 +0000

Quality leadership is an essential factor for making change in education. Just ask any classroom teacher who has had a particularly good, or bad, building principal, and they will tell you stories. Stories of triumph or tragedy, depending on which of the leaders they were paired with. In Project RED’s study of nearly 1,000 schools […]

What I’m Afraid Of

Sat, 23 Mar 2013 03:31:01 +0000

We live a lifetime of not enough time. It moves by and through and around us so quickly. And if we let ourselves, we end up sitting along the curbside watching it, as if in a parade, marching in front as we fight the other spectators to pick up the best of the cheap candy […]

Calculating the Why

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 21:56:16 +0000

This isn’t an anti-math post. It also isn’t meant to be anything more than an honest question that I’m trying to find an answer to. I’ve long considered not even writing it for fear that people will misunderstand or misconstrue the question. But, my inability to find a satisfactory answer in the discussions I have […]

Proud to Tell our Stories

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 17:14:49 +0000

I get to tell stories as part of my job. Hopefully, you do, too. I think, sometimes, people forget the power of human story. Or, at least, we forget the power of telling our stories. Especially in education. There are so many incredible events happening each and every day in and around our classrooms, and […]

We need to think very, very seriously about this

Wed, 31 Oct 2012 03:43:05 +0000

This story is incredible, and admittedly, unfinished. There’s much more we need to learn that hasn’t been told yet, but what we do know c(sh)ould change things. Maybe even a whole lot of things. Recently, the OLPC organization took boxes of tablets, carefully and tightly taped up, and dropped them in two remote villages of […]
