Yesterday we asked the question “Why?” in Technology Leadership as it relates to our use of technology in the classroom. It had me thinking about that question in the context of what we want to do with this project. Why are we doing this project? I can’t speak for the rest of the participants but I see the “Why” as a directive to send our school in a direction that it has never been before. We want to find that common ground between two curricula. Often we ask the question of what do we want our students learn, but we don’t ask why they should.
In the context of our project we all have a clear direction of why, and every persons efforts during this project will bring a wealth of information and expertise to our school. All teachers have and will benefit from our participation in this project.
