Innovative Schools, EdReform and EdTech
I want to share a very quick sentiment. Not a scientific one, nor a particularly studious one either.
I think schools are at a crossroads.
Presented with no way to continue as is, I believe schools have to choose innovation and technology, collaborative learning and new methods or choose to do nothing and risk becoming irrelevant.
So, without sounding preachy or over-dramatic I would encourage anyone who reads this to take a look at a few of the resources available to you that embrace change and improvement:
Twitter - search for hash tags:
Things will change, it's inevitable. Professionally, Believe Kids is very interested in how we can help fund this technical revolution. Personally, I just learn more everyday and where most people see shrinking budgets and negativity, I see possibility.
I think you will see possibility as well if you just take a look at what your peers are doing.
Ok, until next time.
As always, feel free to keep the conversation going here in the form of comments or on twitter - twitter.com/believekids
