Former Chinese leader Deng XiaoPing, when asked how he explained his desire for socialism with more capitalist elements, quoted a famous Chinese proverb stating:
"No matter if it is a white cat or a black cat; as long as it can catch mice, it is a good cat."
It can be argued that the current model for education is not structured to be an effective mouse catcher; it is not set up in a manner to allow for students to learn the skills and knowledge that they will need to be effective and productive citizens in tomorrow's world.
With that in mind, I hope to explore innovative, effective learning practices that engage students in skills that will be needed for their future. Technology will obviously play an important role in this process. In short, I hope to find some good cats!
This blog will be my own learning tool - but I hope it proves useful for others as well.
