Normally, I’m not big on articles with titles like “12 Things That Will Disappear From Classrooms In The Next 12 Years.” But the link had been shared by Leslie Farooq, whom I’ve gotten to know and learned to trust through ongoing interactions and Twitter chats, and she had included an enticing quote - so I decided to click through and read it.
One of the things I love about the NAIS Annual Conference is the effort they make to reach out to those of us who have remained back home with our kids. In between classes and meetings, and once I’m home for the night, I look forward to checking in and seeing what people are talking about, what ideas are out there, what inspirational mind-shifts await me.
Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration. - Thomas Edison [wikiquote.org]
