Why Do You Ask?

From asking questions that require an answer To asking questions that require a conversation.

The Wait May Soon Be Over!

I tweeted John Mayer's song, "Waiting on the World to Change" recently in a 140 character conversation about "where are the poets today." Well, John and his friends may not have to wait much longer...and hopefully we in education won't either.

TED released their 2008 topics of conversation. Interesting lineup for the humanist and fundamentalist in all of us.
  • Who are we?
  • What is our place in the universe?
  • What is life?
  • Is beauty truth?
  • Will evil prevail?
  • How can we change the world?
  • How do we create?
  • What's out there?
  • What will tomorrow bring?
  • What stirs us?
  • How dare we be optimistic?
  • And the point?
Perhaps we can figure out a way to create a way to change education by adapting the information gleaned from the great minds of our world.

@Miguel & Pete - If anyone mentions Diet Leadership here's the plan: Miguel you hit 'em low, Pete can hit 'em in the middle, and I hit 'em high. :-)
