The power of ideas!
Since ancient times, mankind has progressed on the foundation of great ideas. From the Buddha in the 5th century BC, to the renaissance in Europe, to the information age we are in today, change happens when people challenge assumptions, break barriers, and are not afraid to fail.
I believe we are at the threshold of another such revolution in education. Modern technology has afforded us with tools which we can "think with" rather than stare at a blackboard, or constructionism as opposed to instructionism.
In my work, I want to take cutting edge technology, join them to the "learning by doing" constructionist principles, and put that synthesis at the heart of educational reform.
There are sure to be exciting times ahead in my journey. Stay tuned!
