A great commencement address

Doug Johnson at the Blue Skunk blog has shared his latest commencement address and I love it. He shares, in 15 minutes, five principles for education and change learned over 30 years as an educator, and these are:
1. Be subversive.
2. Understand and honor the characteristics of today’s learners.
3. Do not be content with superficial change.
4. Become a co-learner.
5. Take responsibility.
Not a bad list!
Read the whole thing. It’s inspiring.

  1. Thank you, Stephen. Coming from you (one of my genuine heroes!) this is high praise, indeed.

  2. These may be clever things to say in a school- but to advise people to behave like this in their working life will shorten it by many years.
