Here is an article with some amazing quotes to start your day. I have included some that resonate with me:
A Different View of How Schools Could Operate
Summit Schools are interesting. The base-camp model is one that focuses on mastery and begins to develop into competency based education. Truly if we could remove grade levels and move into that direction in public education, it might be for the better. You can really see the effects that personalized learning can bring - as well as understand that you are meeting students where they are at, not by the average. Only time will tell how this model prepares students for a job market that is unpredictable.
If you know me, you do know that I do love to tinker around with gadgets. This next article encourages us to tinker with some inexpensive open sourced materials to build things. Cool things. I am going to encourage some of our educators to do this.
