First of all, congratulations to blog participant Kari Catanzaro who was mentioned and quoted in chapter 8! It's great to see deserving Indiana educators in the spotlight.
The hard thing about reading fairly large chunks of the book at a time is that there are so many things to discuss. I'm going to throw out a couple of things that jumped out at me, but if you want to question or discuss something else, please feel free. I liked the idea of students either owning or renting their education. How do you encourage your students to own their education? Matt talks about the limitations of technology in the classroom. I'm sure you all are implementing technology to some extent in your classroom. How do you determine when it is appropriate to use technology and when it is not?
