We Speak People
Social change is painfully, glacially, frustratingly slow.
Tracking the tweets related to social change from #NCTE17, I am drawn back to my notebook. The ideas in the image above are from Ursula M. Franklin's The Real World of Technology (1999)--a brilliant book on processing the slowly-evolving role technology plays (or doesn't play) in education.
However, social change in school is more than technology.
Social change comes one "thing" at a time. One blog post. One more "just right" book in the classroom. One more club leader unafraid of facilitating social change conversations with students. Hats off to my friend (first) and colleague (@Owsley_Lauren) for sharing her passion for social change through books and conversation. Lauren mentors her students in speaking "people" for sure.
