On Education Trends: CAMPUS TECHNOLOGY January 2014

This "project" was launched initially when I ran across an Open Education Course that required a blog to be launched.     I have continued this to reflect upon Education in general and some of the key trends--including MOOCS.   MOOCS's  have caught fire--but the long-term viability continues to undergone scrutiny:  CAMPUS TECHNOLOGY January 2014

On Why a Sense of Faith in Education is Critical: Thoughts From Dr, King



Life's most urgent question is:
what are you doing for others?
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

When people get caught up with that which is right
and they are willing to sacrifice for it,
there is no stopping point short of victory.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Whatever your life's work is, do it well.
Martin Luther King, Jr. 

We must accept finite disappointment,
but never lose infinite hope.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

On the Beauty of Education and the Need to Keep an Open Mind.....

This is a "channel" that has been dormant, but I hope to resurrect.    I ran across this courtesy of Jonathan Luckwood Huie who does great work in helping to transform our thinking and outlook on life--and believe in the art of the possible.

This "snapshot" of thoughts epitomizes the beauty of Education:

The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance -
it is the illusion of knowledge.
- Daniel J. Boorstin

The problem with making assumptions
is that we believe they are the truth
- don Miguel Ruiz 

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie,
deliberate, contrived and dishonest,
but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
- John F. Kennedy

Believe those who are seeking the truth.
Doubt those who find it.
- Andre Gide
