My First Post

Posted in Reform on January 18, 2010 by gfreducation

Well, I’ve taken the plunge.  I’ve decided that I need to become an active member of the world community and do my part in helping to renew education in America.  Time is limited: we either change or become obsolete.

The purpose of this blog is to promote thought provoking discussions about where we are in education and where we need to be.  If you are not already convinced that education and schools need to change then hopefully I can provide some evidence that that is the case.

You may have already watched these at some point but sometimes we need to see and hear things several times before we become convinced.

If that is not enough to convince you maybe you need to see it from a student’s perspective.

And how many schools allow students to use social media and devices like cell phones and ipods? Are teachers recognizing their value to instruction or do they see them as a distraction?   Isn’t banning these things equivalent to banning access to books?
