Welcome. Let’s Change Education.

For many school-aged children, it’s learning that causes fits–fits of frustration, fits of boredom, fits of feeling that what they do day in and day out at school is irrelevant. The challenge for today’s educators is to use, act upon, and further the research that breaks the mold of learning–void of connection–to the vast majority of students’ lives. Our objective must be to create learning environments that fit today’s learners.

My intent is to use this site to document, record, and reflect on what I am learning about cutting-edge educational practices as I work through Lamar University’s Digital Learning and Leading masters program. I hope that you will follow my blog and learn with me about how to improve education for the students of the world.
