You are creative, creative thinking is work, you must go through the motions, your brain is not a computer, there is no right answer, there is no such thing as failure, you don't see things as they are - you see them as you are.

I subscribe to Edutopia also, and I was planning to post this. But you beet me to it. Excellent choice.

I particularly like this article because it emphasizes that which Obama, Duncan, Gates, Walton, and etc., don't appear to realize or accept--education is not about training robotic employees in a very narrow set of skills and it is not here to serve industry's whims.

I wish more educators (especially those with advanced degrees) opening and vocally challenge the derision and destructive policies of the current technocrats.

thank you
