‘ A teacher’s job is to calm the disturbed and to disturb the calm’ (unknown author)
Disturbing the calm is definitely my preference!
My current goal is to disturb the status quo of classroom teaching. After a great deal of reading and a few encouraging successes, I am excited about the concept of the ‘flat classroom’ as a meaningful way to enhance learning. I want to explore ways to collapse the walls of the classroom and find possibilities for taking learning outside of the conventional structure.
You’re invited to join me on my journey! Let’s create opportunities for our students to connect and collaborate with others outside of the classroom.

You and Linda are our gurus of interesting IT ideas!!
