Aaron’s comments 📑 Making Change in Education – Champions are for Charlatans illuminate and extend Dave Cormier’s post:  Making change in education – champions are for charlatans

A good read for thinking about how Teaching and Learning changes.

I am not sure that splitting folk into champions, middle 60% and Laggards is quite accurate as folk may be enthusiastic about one thing and not another. It is useful to think about. We certainly need to think about the idea of superstar teachers and promoters of change.

Liked A side benefit of going IndieWeb... by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
A side benefit of going IndieWeb and posting everything to my own site first instead of to social silos like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinboard, Reading.am, Pocket, Mastodon, etc.: It’s pretty easy to rack up big consecutive day posting streaks in WordPress. Toaster notification on my computer...
