Hi Greg. I was wondering if any of your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
Greg, you found the words and strung them together for us. Well said. I read this aloud to the M.Ed.s in class with me on my first reading. 'Learning Has Left the Building' is exactly where our discussions have been as we begin our class this semester. My students thank you. Lots of light bulbs going off in here. :-)
It's been busy, the end of the year always is. I want to wish you luck in South Africa. Learning how to encourage the kids to learn and appreciate what we're trying to do for them is a huge hurdle. I hope you can leave something for them, too.
My thought is not so much that learning has left the building as learning should never have gotten into the building in the first place. Our entire lives are about learning and experience. If we try to learn only in certain environments, we are limiting what we can learn as individuals and as a society.
Keep up the good work!
Greg, thank you so much for the wonderful compliments. The funny thing is, there is a heart of gold at the back of my book for children to look into. Thank you for being so aware :- )
Have a wonderful rest of the day!
