I love how your "intrapreneurship" often led to actually being hired for jobs you wanted to do.

You Are Not a Failure
One of my favorite ways to catch people's attention is to use the statement, " your child is not defective ." You see, parents often get the message that their children have not measured up in both specific and general ways. In an education system driven by...

Teacrhers as agents of change and creation is
inverted understanding of education in which
teacher becomes the subject of change.
The  role of teacher is to ignite the potential
creative power in students.

"It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." - W. Edwards Deming
Often, when I'm having a conversation about the expanded ways in which the Internet has provided new and exciting options for learning, the person I'm talking to will argue: if schools don't change dramatically, they will be left behind and become irrelevan...

The Learning Revolution
Introduction

Professional Information:  I am the founder and director of the Learning Revolution Project, the host of the Future of Education interview series, and founder and chair or co-chair of a number of annual worldwide virtual events, including the School Leadership Summit and the Global Education ConferenceLibrary 2.0, the Future of Museums, Gaming in Education, and the Homeschool Conference.

I pioneered the use of social networking in education by creating the Classroom 2.0 social network in 2007, and supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education networks, particularly for professional development. For the last eight years, I've run a large annual ed-tech unconference, now called Hack Education (previously EduBloggerCon). I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and my virtual and physical events build community and connections in education, with 130,000 members and over 100,000 participant log-ins annually.

I have been the Emerging Technologies Chair for ISTE, a regular co-host of the annual Edublog Awards, the author of "Educational Networking: The Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education," and the recipient of the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award (CUE).  I have consulted or served on advisory boards for Blackboard, CoSN, Instructure, Intel, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, MERLOT, Microsoft, Mightybell, New Media Consortium (NMC), Ning, PBS, Promethean, U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. State Department, and others typically focusing on educational technology and social networking. A number of corporations and organizations support my events, and you can see a list and more details of my projects at Web 2.0 Labs.

Personal Information:  I was a foreign-exchange student through AFS to Brazil for a year in high school, and organized and led group tours for several years as my first job after college for Stanford's Alumni Association. I spent 2013 traveling around the world talking to people about education. I have the skin condition Vitiligo and created the world's largest social network for those with Vitiligo at VitiligoFriends.org as well as the UniquelyBeautiful.net site. I also run a network for members of the extended Hargadon family--Hargadon is an Irish name, and all Hargadons come from Sligo.

Like finding an oasis in the desert. Have driven cross-country several times this year, had this marked on my map but had never made it until today--pure gold. Great food, great staff. Wish I lived in Columbia.

Import Auto came to our rescue when another local (well-known) shop quoted us on a repair job and inflated the parts prices by a couple of thousand dollars. We've since used Import Auto for all our repair and maintenance work and they've gained our complete trust.
