Looking forward to it!
 
On Teachers Teaching Teachers at http://edtechtalk.com/live on Wednesday 2.22.12 at 9PM Eastern / 6PM Pacific/World Times: goo.gl/Y0yYc this amazing mix of thoughtful people will be helping each of us to reconsider our assumptions and to recast our questions about student engagement in high school and beyond. Please add to this mix by listening in and adding to the chat at http://edtechtalk.com/live.

Learn more about +Todd Finley and his colleague Shari Steadman's research into how student teachers at East Carolina University

Find out from +Alexander Pappas and +Ruby Ku about what's new at http://hourschool.com especially their Peer Teaching Campaign http://hourschool.com/campaign

Listen to what the provocative, thoughtful folks like +Troy Hicks, +Lisa Nielsen , +Buffy Hamilton, and +Teresa Bunner have to day about drop outs and engagement.

Join a couple of students, +evelyn salazar and +Kelsey Shelhart who might be able to join us.

And listen to +Nick Perez explain why his unrecognized talents led him to leaving high school, and into the new life working at a technology start up.

AND MORE! Mainly +Paul Allison, +monika hardy, and +Chris Sloan are ready to welcome the different perspectives on the important question of Who drops out? Why? Does it matter? What alternatives are available? How do questions about "engagement" -- even what it means -- help us have productive dialogues about what good teaching and learning looks like and what might change in our schools.

All of this on Teachers Teaching Teachers at http://edtechtalk.com/live on Wednesday 2.22.12 at 9PM Eastern / 6PM Pacific/World Times: goo.gl/Y0yYc

Check out my latest HourSchool blog post... "It's not the method..." I'd love to hear your thoughts on the last few questions. Cheers.

I love it.

I also think method is not the limiting factor. If it is hard to find the one, passion seems to be a good (un)limiting factor.
