Change is Inevitable - Growth is Optional


All I can say is WOW!

I read this from Amy Kearns at Library Garden. She is discussing a conference in New Jersey. What a great motto, and as Amy puts it...
I saw that someplace recently and it really, really strikes me and stands out to me as the motto we should all adopt at this very transitional time! Change is difficult and can be traumatic. But it is going to happen whether we want it to or not; whether we like it or not; whether we try to stand still and let it roll over us; or we embrace it and hop on for the ride!
Interestingly, you cannot read her ideas while within our school due to the filtering policy. Blogs with a blogspot host is considered "a bad thing." Oh, the education we are missing at school.

I wish for the days when the adults will be today's kids, and we'll all have a good laugh at the things we think are uneducational today. Blogs, wikis, SmartBoards, iPods, podcasts, self-created online videos, educational networks, and other "2.0" tools are not fads. They may not be used in the future, due to future technologies yet to be considered. Perhaps in these days to come, we might be able to unblock the "evil" sites of 2007.
