Thing #1 - Inspiration and Registration

I'm excited to get started. The summer feels like it is already flying by!

What a cool video! That would be great to share with parents so that they could see just how the classroom is changing. What stuck out to me about the teacher was that she was encouraging new ideas, and motivating the student to keep searching. I 100% see a librarian taking on that role. I love that the student was taking ownership of his knowledge, seeking out information and organizing it in the way that best suited him. Instead of memorizing a list of preselected facts. BORING and how much do we really learn when we do that??
