Quote for the Day

From David Warlick:
We desperately need… we may not survive without… a generation of young people who are imaginative, inventive, fearless learners, and compassionate leaders. Yet, what can we say, as educators, about the students we are producing. We can prove that they can read, do basic math on paper, and they are able to sit for hours filling in bubble sheets.

No generation in history has ever been so thoroughly prepared for the industrial age.

Read that last line a few times . . .

  1. Am I missing something or are we past the "industrial" age? I too wander what has happened to the imagination of the teacher and the students the past few years. I would like to think that we, as a group, are working hard to change that.
