I ran across another great video (via Kim Corfino - blogging from Malaysia) that I think all educators should watch. She also led me to this post at Dangerously Irrelevant (blogging from Minnesota), which led me to this list of quotes regarding the need for change in education (including "no one jumps a 20 foot chasm in two 10 foot jumps"). That led me in turn to this post (I'm pretty sure Kathy is just up the road in Boulder), which I had read about 6-8 months ago but really resonated with where I'm at right now (blogging from Centennial, but I meant where I'm at emotionally or intellectually or philosophically or something). I love the graphic with the "Big Wall" at the beginning of Kathy's post.
I feel like I'm standing on the precipice of that 20 foot chasm and/or hitting that big wall . . . and I'm not sure what to do about it. Sorry, just felt the need to wallow for a moment.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the video.
