Thinking in a new way

The one thing about spending time with David Warlick is that within a few minutes you will be thinking in new ways. David did a terrific job of working with our district folk yesterday. I saw the faces of people go through many emotions yesterday, but the common one was the deep thinking look. As David taught and challenged our district I could see a lot nodding heads as well. This will get our new round of technology planning off to flying start.

A Great Dinner

I had the opportunity to dine with David Warlick this evening. He is working with our district tomorrow. It is so refreshing to hear a progressive voice. Whenever I listen to David the thought keeps running through my mind, What is it going to take to really make changes in public education? What is it that will really prepare my children for the flat world? Can it be done within the confines of the current system. I am afraid I know the answer. I think I can help my children through the system by adding to what they are getting in the system, but what about all of the rest of the kids. Who is going to do it for them, if not their teachers?
I am really interested to see the reaction to the message David will share tomorrow.
