This blog’s mission is to explore the fundamental question of “How Do Kids Learn?” In this age of instant access to nearly limitless information, what is the role of schools and educators? How can developments in neuroscience help teachers be more effective and inspiring? How can technology be utilized in the classroom to help kids take a more active role in their own learning? These and many other questions are what this blog seeks to explore. If you are a student, a parent of a student, once were a student, or are now an educator, (that includes everyone at least once, right?) you have something to contribute to this discussion! Please join in! It is in dialogue that we can build insights and keep moving forward as learners and educators!
(As an aside, the motif of this blog is the moth pictured above. It was by fortuitous accident that these pictures came about. One of my dogs found a small wriggly beast amongst the leaves on the forest floor and his curiosity caught my attention. Moth was hence rescued from bird dog’s soft mouth and placed on a tree branch to complete his transformation. The series of photos of the wings unfolding I think are an apt metaphor for our students’ journey of growth.)
