Is It The Right Time? Or, Do I Have Time Right?

Do we fully understand how we are trying to take ‘present-oriented beasts’ and make them into ‘future-oriented’ adults through the use of an ‘analogue’ system directed at a ‘digital’ consumer?  Why do we insist in not giving over control and why do we delay gratification?

Huh?

Check out this ten minute video.  It’s packed a lot of big fundamental questions into it.  It proposes an almost Copernican turn around in our view of our role as educators.

 Is it proposing a ‘revolution of time?’

Can we make the fundamental shift in our relationship with our students and make it manifest through our teaching?

Just wondering . . . .

About gsstrojantalk

I grow people for a living and stretch myself for fun! I pursue a constant state of relentless restlessness and 'grow people' by creating conditions within which others around me choose to stretch. I want to explore the Why, How and What that I do, or believe that I do. These are musings and provocations. Oh, and I'm the proud Principal of Gananoque Secondary School, in beautiful Gananoque, Ontario.
