“To fish, water is invisible. To students today, technology is invisible. It is only noticed in its' absence~like at school.”  -- David Truss

“40% of adults — including 46% of those ages 18 to 39 — own an e-reader or a tablet. That's more than double the numbers less than two years ago.” -- from USA Today / Bookish poll

“I don’t do education for a living, I live education as my doing . . .  and technology has amplified my passion for doing so.” -- Jackie Gerstein

“A broad and longstanding consensus in leadership theory holds that leaders in all walks of life and all kinds of organizations, public and private, need to depend on others to accomplishthe group’s purpose and need to encourage the development of leadership across the organization. Schools are no different.”-- The Wallace Foundation

“Teaching is the art of assisting discovery”  -- Mark van Doren

“Creativity is nurtured by freedom and stifled by the continuous monitoring, evaluation, adult-direction, and pressure to conform that restrict children’s lives today.  In the real world few questions have one right answer, few problems have one right solution; that’s why creativity is crucial to success in the real world.”  -- Peter Gray
