Finding Tomorrow's School

Last week I was on Skype with an old colleague who was telling me about the school she moved to last summer.  What so impressed me about everything she was saying was the "can do" attitude that pervades the school.  An environment that encourages educators to try out new things is one that inspires innovation and creativity.  She talked about the way that having access to technology allows a more personalized learning experience for each student.  She talked to me about the innovative practices that are occurring there and how the school is questioning and rethinking teaching and learning which involves questioning and rethinking the spaces that are used for teaching and learning.  What an exciting time this is to be in education in a school that is focused on tomorrow!
