Greetings Fellow EduChange Travelers, It’s been good to get a post-election look at the Land of Milk and Honey (New Zealand) and along the way sample some truly delightful Pinots from Central Otago. (Wet Jacket is definitely one to remember.) What I’ve found on my trip here is increasing motivation to build a future that […]
“We’ve moved from an experience rich, information poor world to an experience poor, information rich world.” And that, according to Joel Pelcyger, is a cause for some deep thinking about the role and value of schools in the modern world. Pelcyger, who founded Pluralistic School One in Santa Monica, CA 46 years ago, has been […]
Greetings Fellow Internet Edu-Wayfarers, Another week gone by in our quest to break down the boxes in our brains that define what school is. How we doing with that? Bruce is traipsing through the wine country of New Zealand this week where, (did you hear?) the new government is breaking boxes left and right. End […]
With all of the problems associated with standardized testing and school assessments in general, is it finally time to start a different conversation about how we assess learning in schools? That’s the question that Will and Bruce discuss on this our 26th episode of the Modern Learners podcast. This conversation stem from a post from […]

Are you one of those people who always follow the same route to work, every day, for years? I am. Yes, I know it’s boring, but it’s a habit, it’s intuitive, and I can drive without thinking too much about it. And to be honest, while there may be better, faster ways for me to […]
A content-focused school experience or a skills-focused one. That was the choice posed to me by a parent in Luxembourg during my visit there last week. As in which did I think would be best for his daughter who was entering school next year? Before I could respond, he added that at first he was […]
If there’s one topic that keeps educational leaders awake at night, and which keeps raising its ugly head when we talk about change in our schools, it’s the tyranny of testing. I don’t use the word tyranny lightly. Defined as cruel, unreasonable, or an arbitrary use of power or control through oppressive government rule, I […]
If you can change the culture of a huge business that has over 124,000 employees, does that mean you can change the culture of schools that in many cases have only a few hundred, or in some cases a few dozen employees? That’s the question Bruce and Will kick around in this the 24th episode […]
