Dean Groom and Bron Stuckey …

Don’t just wonder about the future … Create it.

The first three minutes of this keynote have just blown my mind. Really. Exactly what I needed to hear this morning I think.

So, I was too busy thinking about this keynote to make notes. Really awesome. And I agree with Dean – awesome stuff should be allowed in classrooms because it’s awesome. End of story.
I want to be both a unicorn, AND the best person I can be … Is that so wrong? 🙂

I love Bron’s idea that teachers are heroes. The metaphor of the hero’s journey is a really interesting one, and how it applies to our role as teachers. So, that’s part one of my reflection on Day 2 Keynote …. Stay tuned for more on this, though, as I know it’s going to be rolling around in my head for a very long time!!

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
