"Which is why despite the shiny new tools or the seemingly unending string of new learning approaches (flipped, blended, collaborative, personalized, project-based and on and on), nothing has really changed. Kids are still bored in school.

Our cultures focus on teaching, not learning, and very little “innovation” as it’s currently constituted has impacted that at all." -Will Richardson

"It’s not about teaching kids not to use a specific app. It’s about teaching them not to give this kind of information out."
