This week, Matt and Courtney discuss an article they found... interesting. It was on Education Week and we found it to be a very interesting take on personalized learning and where the movement may be going. Thanks to @rickhess99 and @LarryAmplify for the thought-provoking words. Find it at http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/rick_hess_straight_up/2018/02/a_confession_and_a_question_on_personalized_learning.html
This week, Matt and Courtney talk about a tweet from George Couros (@gcouros) that caught our eye. " If our focus is solely on 'engagement' in the classroom, we've created a culture where the student needs a teacher to learn. If we focus more on empowerment, the student gains ownership over their own learning, growth, and direction." Hell yes.

This week: Matt and Courtney talk about cooking tips, the difference between meals and salads, and chicken cordon bleu. It all relates to personalized learning, believe it or not. We also had some slight editing issues, and by we, we mean Matt. You will hear us out of one earbud each this week, as we (again, Matt) are still learning how to use two microphones.
