Live Thursday March 29th - Two Events, NPR NewsHour Plus Teacher-Driven Change

Join me today, Thursday, March 29th, for either or both of two live and interactive shows.

First is a quick feedback session for the folks at PBS NewsHour who are asking for teacher help in the redesign of their teacher resource site. Part of the Classroom 2.0 EdIncubator project, this is a chance to both learn about the resources available for free to educators and students, and to help a worthy cause!

Second is a FutureofEducation.com conversation with Dick Gale on teacher-driven change, specifically looking at strengths-based thinking, appreciative inquiry, positive deviance, and building cultures of success. Dick is the Manager/Program Director of the California Teachers Association (CTA) Institute for Teaching, a non-profit foundation, and the school-reform arm of the CTA. More information on their website at http://www.teacherdrivenchange.org.
