Today was an inspirational day. I met up this morning with Dr. Reimers to discuss a class project and some personal ideas. He is seriously one of my favorite teachers here. Then, in my Charter Schools class, there were a slew of great speakers with practical advice.. it was so jam-packed. And then, oh, Mike Feinberg (cofounder of KIPP) decided to swing by. Regardless of my personal feelings about KIPP schools, it’s times like these where I am amazed and thankful to be at HGSE.
Today I’m working on my Business Model Canvas since tomorrow I’m meeting with a friend to discuss a nascent business plan for The Mind Garden. Wheeoo wheeoo. Should’ve started this earlier!
I’m also eating Mike’s Pastry, Ben & Jerry’s Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night Snack Ice cream, and Haagen Dazs five’s coffee ice cream. 🙂
Just read the following article to pump myself up. An oldie but a goodie.
Disruption is coming, there is no doubt of it! Will it be soon? Will it be virtual? We have little idea at this time as to how it will eventually turn out. What is also clear, however, is that the technology revolution taking place means that when disruption does come, it will be more than mere operational rearrangements; it will be profound and revitalizing.
