Doodling about Education... A Perspective from Sir Ken Robinson

Please take a moment and watch this video created by Sir Ken Robinson. He details his opinion about the current state of our education system through a very unique and engaging presentation. My brain surely was jumpstarted by some of his comments.

Lessons from a Dancing Guy.......

I have always found it amazing how we can derive meaning from sometimes the most simple moments in life. Take a moment to watch this 3 minute talk given by Derek Sivers on the topic of "How to Start a Movement." How can his apply to how you manage your classroom?

"How to Start a Movement" (Sorry for the commercial at the end....ignore it).
