Sick – time to ponder how things are goin’

I have been crook the last few days and have had time to lie in bed and think and to browse the internet for brain-food on teaching and learning.

A time to recharge the batteries which have been steadily drained…

Also spent time on Facebook reading that some of my students were glad I was sick so they didn’t have to go to school…YOUCH! Still have a way to go for making school/learning more relevant…

Here are a few pearls of wisdom I found:

  • “I’ve never let my school interfere with my education.” (Mark Twain)
  • Take care that we pay attention to the kids, not to the content.
  • Much of what we do is unlearning school. (Elliot Washor)
  • The single most important contribution education can make to a child’s development is to help him toward a field where his talents best suit him, where he will be satisfied and competent. (Howard Gardiner)
  • There are hundreds and hundreds of ways to succeed, and many many different abilities to help you get there. (Howard Gardiner)
  • “Don’t listen to what they say, watch their feet.” (Unknown)
  • Do, Think, Do (Big Picture)
