From "The Trick Is...", a teaser:
None of that is on my wish list these days.
What is on that list, however, is the desire to see my students shine in ways that are limited by my 4 cinder-block walls.
And for them to begin to see the value of being truly capable when a real-time audience is a) paying attention, b) giving real-world feedback, and c) willing to collaborate based on their abilities (not just their pat-on-the-head potential).
In spite of having been the talking head and "School 2.0" guy on occasion, I'm nervous as heck...and have to admit that I have never 'been here' before.
The only way we'll see what is possible given the legitimate constraints of a real school, a real classroom, and a real student/teacher relationship is to put a toe in the water.
Even if it ain't much more than a gentle ripple across the surface of possibility on day one.
