My son came home from school the other day talking about 'making connections'. He said that we are all connected and that we need to use our minds to see how we are connected. Wise words for a 5-year-old and kudos to the educator who didn't think he was 'only 5' and knew that he was able to grasp such abstractions. Everyday now he talks about how various things/people/places are connected and how he, too, is connected to said thing/person/place. Wow - amazing things take place in a learner's mind when s/he is pushed to think critically.
An educator nomad traveling and teaching her way around the world. Fun stuff.
