…Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
— Robert Frost
This first post will be short. There are tons of blogs out there. Why? Because we love to learn, whether it’s objective or subjective information. There is no one way of learning, no single path. K-16 education and beyond has begun to recognize this, and pockets of our globe are gearing up for a change in the way we support learning.
While this blog isn’t dedicated to the idea of an educational revolution, that concept is inherent here. More specifically, it will observe learning: what it looks like, what subserves its existence, how we can facilitate it as educators and learners ourselves, and what tools enhance it.
Throughout everything, it is important to keep in mind that no one has this completely figured out. Traditional models worked for a time and purpose, but are now obsolete for a number of reasons. We can prepare and research, but at some point, we need to embrace a more fluid approach to student learning and our own learning for that matter. Sometimes you don’t know you’re learning as you’re doing it. What are you passionate about? What does it look like when you learn about it?
Keep an open mind. Travel the road not taken.
