Exponential Learning: The Future of Education

The Internet offers exponential learning.  The Internet brings us to places we could never have imagined before.

Tonight, I listened to Michael Fullan, the author of Motion Leadership; the Skinny on Becoming Change Savvy as part of the 2013 School Leadership SummitFullan described his successful work in Ontario and offered educators many links and strategies for moving school systems forward with optimal results.

Steve Hargadon's Future of Education series offers educators a chance to learn about, listen to and converse with leading educators and leaders weekly from the comfort of your home.  These leaders will serve to impact and inspire your work with students in significant ways.

In the past, many thought of education as an isolated profession.  Today, the Internet offers educators exponential learning as well as a vibrant community of educational practitioners, leaders and researchers.  

On April 4th, Hargadon will interview John Hattie, a leading educational researcher whose book, Visible Learning for Teachers, Maximizing Impact on Learning has profoundly and positively impacted my teaching.  If you're curious about Hargadon's work and Hattie's research, this might be the perfect time to try out this one, very effective and powerful Internet learning path. I hope to see you there.
