Know what I don't do?

Read Education blogs.
Well, hardly at all- once in a great while I delve in and see if I've missed something, but the bulk of the time I stay well clear. And here's why:

It's all the same.

It's much the same reason I don't take part in #edchat as much as I used to- it feels like people talking in circles about the same issues over and over. I can't remember the last time I saw any disruptive tech/ideas surface in one.
And what I strongly believe we need is disruptive ideas.

We've pushed incremental change for years- refining ideas and delivery and standards, but ultimately, we've not broken a lot of new ground. We haven't climbed many new mountains or discovered many new lands. We need to.

So I'm looking for new ground, and new tech, and new ideas that haven't been done before in education. Disruptive, difficult, complicated, fertile new ground.

See you there.
