Maybe it’s all a bunch of hogwash. I have this crazy notion that some way/somehow we need to change the way we educate young people… mostly because EdWorld just isn’t producing graduates who can actually […]
Dry Spell I’ve hardly written anything for the last half of 2016. Up until July, I had been highly prolific. Though my brain has been running in hyperdrive these past six months, few thoughts have […]
Here at Never Summer, we have been working hard on a wide range of projects since edOS in June. We have been absent from the blog 😦
Truly… we were stunned by the huge quantity of amazing work resulting from the energy all educators brought to the table that day. We should have shared it all with you before now. Sorry. We just weren’t sure what to do with everything we learned. We didn’t truly understand what we held in our hands. But we get it now. And we’re ready to move forward with a few insights and hope you will chime in and add to the deep conversation.

Change IS Hard
The hardest part about change is that it’s hard. No matter if we are talking about personal or organizational change. Real and lasting change requires sustained dedication to a cause. Quite honestly, that in and of itself, goes against the flow of every fiber of being for those who live in the 21st century. Which is all of us. We are all about instant gratification these days. Sustained dedication is not the normal mode of operation.
Anymore, we are socially/ emotionally/ developmentally and professionally conditioned to resist change. Which on the surface appears ironic, and even untrue, given the outrageous, incredible blur of speed that dictates our everyday pace these days. Looking from the outside in, any stranger might rightly assume we all embrace change in this modern-day whirlwind of a culture. So not the case.
