Innovative TIME

One day at a time- this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. – Ida Scott Taylor.

Go figure that a 16 month old would be totally absorbed for 3 hours watching the Wizard of Oz. What made a difference? The environment … being able to sit, stand and lay while feeling safe close to her family on the blanket set up by Susan, the wife of the Wizard in the play.  My 2nd and 8th grandsons were just as engaged. If only this was the creative environment in schools today. I connected with Susan Karnovsy an innovative author and teacher at ISTE at the Author Signing for “No Fear Coding.” We are hoping to bring creativity to Austin and Houston schools through Coding in the ARTS.  The real STEAM needed in education.  But to make that happen the system must be changed to bring equitable innovative time equal to test time.

What innovative things do you remember from this summer?
