How imaginative is school?  What kinds of big ideas come from education that transform things?  Does education have the capacity to generate its own bold and magnificent ideas?  Does education, as an institution, have the capacity to wonder, to innovate and to take on a new expedition, one in which the outcome is possibly not known?  How will educators write the invitation to that expedition?  Isn't it time to finally write that invitation?

Over the next several days and beyond, take time to explore these questions.  By yourself.  With others.  Challenge yourself to develop your own call to action, and to purposefully rekindle a spirit of wonder about what you do, what’s possible, and how to realize it.   It’s time to write a new manifesto for learning, one that is actionable, and one that makes a difference in the education of students.  This presentation seeks to encourage you to do just that, to be curious, to go on a new journey, to wonder, and to take that next great expedition that will make all the difference.
