Very thoughtful article. As a school admin, I've had to take care of student-to-student bullying. It is sometimes difficult to get kids who witness it to stand up. But when they do it makes me proud. The most difficult bullying I've dealt with, however, is parents bullying teachers when their students don't get the grades parents feel their children deserve. 
If you’re involved in an education movement or engage in pioneering practices, you have noticed not everyone agrees with your views. Effective movers and shakers welcome a challenge. They are ready to take on the discourse...

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed hearing about this program.  I'm sharing it out to our teachers and some of our IT people now.  I want our kids involved in something similar to this!

Lisa, I truly love this idea.  Our kids have been out of school 3 days last week because of weather related problems.  They are out again Monday for President's Day.  I'm sending this discussion guide out in an email to students today and posting it on our school's FB page.  Great questions!

Tried to get a few photos while in Cincinnati this weekend.  The weather was rather uncooperative.  Had to settle for these.

Nathan, money is always the issue.  You are spot on about that.  But in terms of a "bring your own device" mindset, what kind of problems do you think might be raised by Google Glass in an educational setting that may not be raised by, say, an iPad or a cell phone?  And if there are problems that are different, will schools be proactive in setting up guidelines, or will we let the "tail wag the dog"?

Took a walk around Franklin, TN yesterday.  Nice little downtown area with great shops and restaurants.  If you've never been, look up the Battle of Franklin.  One of the most amazing stories I've heard about from the Civil War.
