Important Voices

Today started with a great conversation over breakfast.  I was sitting with Harry Niezen,  Donna Fry and  George Couros.  The question on the table was who are the big names to follow in education these days?

After some healthy discussion, of a few of the traditional big names the conversation drifted to a new perspective. Why do we need to focus on the “big names”?   Many educators are bloggers. These educators are openly sharing ideas, reflections, visions and questions.

Why would we pay attention to one perspective?  Why not read, share, comment and reflect on the viewpoints of active connected educators who are putting their thinking ‘out there’ for everyone to access?

Where do you stand?  The one (or few) or the many?
