How many of our students will stand up against the status quo? How many will be changed by the old cadre? The changes are upon us. Cedar Falls is adopting the one-to-one model. Waterloo... Well, that area needs some time and some creative teachers that will find a way to bring 21st century tools on a budget. Will they thrive and become valuable assets to their schools? Only time will show.
We pulled them today during our regular backchannel discussion via the coveritlive! The results are promising:
The afternoon lecture was more cautious:
Some men see things as they are and ask “Why?”

Good luck guys! You are a smart bunch. Just don't lose the enthusiasm, dream big, and never stop learning! As my friend, Martajek, says: "Those who don't keep marching perish"
Good advice: give up on trying to always be the best! Let your students teach you the newest!
Let them be the technology leaders, let them come up with the new ideas. That would empower them and give you the opportunity to learn from them. You will deliver the content, your students will implement it via technology. Win- win! :-)
