Will Richardson - Powerful Voice, Extremely Compelling

I'm sitting here in Will Richardson's NECC session entitled From Hand it in to Publish It: Re-Envisioning Our Classroom. While Will is speaking, I'm also participating in an 11-person Skype chat. We're discussing the session, expounding on Will's thoughts, providing links, and documenting the session. Absolutely amazing. You may read our skype chat here.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Will's session (all from Will):

  • Kids don't see privacy the same way that we do.
  • We learn for ourselves, we learn because we want to, we learn because we're passionate about our topic.
  • I didn't get to be a life long learner until I was 40.
  • How do our kids figure out who they can trust?
  • As educated people, we have to be able to determine whether or not information is reliable.
  • The link is what powers the network.
  • All of our work has to have wings.
  • You bought into education. If you don't have the time, suck it up.
  • If you're scared, that's good. It means you care...
  • Most of the people on the train still don't get it.
Thanks, Will. Excellent session - keep up the good work.
