staying the same in education

As I think about my role in education in the future, I was intrigued by the article, “Focusing on What is Going to Stay the Same in Education” by AJ Juliani.  I was intrigued because he states that all we hear in the news is how education is going to change in the next 5…10…20 years – but no one talks about the things that will stay the same.

Of the six truths that he shares, my favorite is: Truth #4: Our job is not to “prepare” students for something. Our job is to help students prepare themselves for anything.

My belief is that technology is a way to supplement, not replace, the six truths.  And my job is to help students understand and navigate a path that matters to them and that they own.

If you are interested in his perspective and the six truths, you can check it out here:

Fun reading for sure!
