The members of educational Bloggers Network (eBN) are working to instill several generations of young people with the values and concepts of narrating the work, sharing their knowledge, and thinking out loud. By the time these young people enter the workforce such ideas will no longer seem foreign, outlandish, or wasteful. Rather, they will be seen as ways to do more, learn more, and earn more. We won’t have to spend 90 percent of our effort just convincing people to share. The change won’t happen immediately, and it won’t happen soon enough to help some of us at all. But it will happen. And because it will happen we need to support efforts like eBN in whatever ways we can. These people are on to something that matters. We should help.
This is definitely the kind of thinking that will bring all of this to more and more teachers and educators. Well said!
