For the second Ed. Quotes, it is important to reaffirm the importance of the learning power of mistakes and respecting the unprogrammable flow of learning.

 

Often I have not known where I was going until I was already there. I have had my share of desires and goals, but my life has come to me or I have gone to it mainly by way of mistakes and surprises. Often I have received better than I have deserved. Often my fairest hopes have rested on bad mistakes. I am an ignorant pilgrim, crossing a dark valley. And yet for a long time, looking back, I have been unable to shake off the feeling that I have been led – make of that what you will. ~ Wendell Berry

For the first quote of the New Year, it is important to reaffirm important principles of Pedagogy First.

 

“It is very easy to get mesmerized by the latest app, gadget, device, or tech tool. In order to experience the full potential of educational technology, focus on the foundation first. Pedagogy trumps technology.

~ Eric Sheninger, Senior Fellow, International Center for Leadership in Education

High school student’s paraphrase of learner-directed classroom environments, as shared by an online, Twitter colleague.

“In a teacher-centered class, students get ‘fed’ learning like in a high chair – in a learner-centered environment, students help make the meal and sit down to eat together.”
