I’ve spent the past few nights working my way through Will Richardson’s newest book, Why School — a GREAT read that is well worth the $3 you’ll pay for it on Amazon.
One of the quotes that caught my attention was this one:
So whaddya’ think? Is YOUR school doing its best to make sure that the kids sitting in your classrooms will be “well-Googled” by first AND last name on the day that they graduate?
Do you think that most teachers would see “Google-ability” as a trait that schools are responsible for helping students to develop before they leave our classrooms?
What about parents, politicians and policymakers. Would they support classrooms where creating a lasting and positive digital footprint is a priority?
Talk amongst yourselves. I’m Verklempt.
