Learning to Change

David Warlick posted the following video this morning. As I began to watch, I was thinking about the simplicity of the black backdrop and the pan and zoom effects involved. As Dean says, design matters, because I was pleasantly surprised to find Dr. Deborah Baker, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction for the Brighton Central School District, be a part of this message. I’ve had the pleasure to work with many educators and administrators in Brighton and have enjoyed the conversations and progress made there in their 2020 Vision.

  1. Wow Brian.. wow. Great video, thanks for posting it! I almost don’t know what to say. Its so true. It is interesting how the video mentions that many of the technologies students are using to communicate are not allowed in schools (facebook, cell phones etc). It makes me crazy because I can’t, for the life of me, get my students to bring a calculator to our math class and yet I am not allowed to let them use the calculator tool on their cell phones which they ALWAYS have with them. I think it is so important to allow our students to work with the tools that they will have with them when they leave our schools.

    Thanks again for posting. Hope everything is treating you well 🙂

  2. Hi Mr. Smith,

    This is a wonderful video. If I can share a favorite, I love the part where the guy is talking about the little space where kids have their technology. To me, I interpret that as being how the world is getting so small, and as those lines for the little space get smaller as the man was indicating, the more the technology is developing in our world. One day, I dream to create something with technology that someone would never have thought of. I’ll put my time in, but I know that right now I’m Not one of those students who takes the technology we have for granted. I can’t believe of the capabilities we have today! Thank you for sharing.

    And Yes, I too a very big baseball fan and It makes me very happy to see that there are already a number of artifcats in the Baseball Hall of Fame. But I believe there should be, and possibly earlier. As a great fan of baseball, I know you know the history within that stadium and dont you believe that it should be one of the greatest displays in the Hall of Fame?
