“We can’t be
creative if we
refuse to be
confused.
Change always
starts with
confusion.”
~Margaret Wheatley
“Willing to be...
Educators should be

more confused
than ever.

My biases:

Friday, November 15, 13
This is the most

disruptive moment
ever in education.

Friday, November 15, 13
But, this is also the

most amazing time
to be a learner.

Friday, November 15, 13
Schools are the

most important
institutions
in our communities.

Friday, November 15, 13
But, schools and educators need to be

“different”
not “better.”

Friday, November 15, 13
We can

no longer want
for our kids

the same education
that we ourselves had.
