Unsorted Thoughts from a Conference

Thinking out of the box is seeing things not as they are, but as what they could be.

Are our schools the gravity that binds our children’s imagination to the ground, unable to take flight?

Have we unknowingly, by encouraging obedience and mainstream-ness, shunned creativity and imagination?

No one will ever say: “I don’t want to be myself. Make me like everyone else.” So why are we doing it to others if we don’t want it done to us?

Are we still teaching for the 21st Century when we should be teaching for the 31st?

Teaching is a moral, human, intellectual, thinking activity.

Assessment should motivate learning, not kill the love for it. Alas… What have we done?

Diversity is the norm. Conformity is not.


To be sorted. Soon.
