From Kerry Gallagher – “There is both excitement and criticism around the paperless classroom movement. Both camps have good intentions, but neither is focused on the right thing. It isn’t about paper, or the lack of paper. It is about what the tech makes possible when learners push themselves to get creative.”
From Vox – “Bernie Sanders loves to talk about Denmark’s liberal policies, including free higher education. But for his plan to make tuition free at public colleges, there’s a better comparison: Scotland, which abolished tuition fees in 2000.”
“Today I read a newsletter from my children’s elementary school. It said 60% of the jobs our middle schoolers learn habit of future workforcechildren will be competing for have not been invented yet. The school district has prepared “6 Habits of Mind” to equip the kids of the future of work.”
I feel blessed to be an educator. I have had the good fortune of working as an English teacher, an Assistant Principal, a Principal and an Assistant Superintendent. I currently serve as the Assistant Superintendent of Burlington Public Schools (MA).
