ASTE Update

I heard Lee Crockett speak at the General Session this morning. Lee’s presentation challenged prevailing thoughts about our current reality and the rate of change in which are lives function.

A couple of thoughts sparked my interest. I wonder what others think about these:

1. As educators do we function in a system that prepares students for “our past” or for “their future?”

2. New technologies do not necessarily bring on new “habit of mind.”

What do you think?

Welcome

This blog is a product of Highland Tech Charter School. The intent of this blog is to provide a place to share innovative things happening at our school. It is also a place where we can interact with each other and with the world about transforming the educational system to better meet the needs of today and tomorrow’s learners.

We will explore innovative ideas and best teaching practices, stakeholder voice/engagement (staff, student, parent, community), and technology integration in the teaching and learning process.

Please join us in thought provoking conversation so that we can transform education for a new tomorrow.
