Signed up for ConvertKit email marketing software three days ago. Needed a profile pic. Here it is, from 2014. Jody Maberry asked me to do this so we can allow Podcast listeners to subscribe to my new podcast. PS. i will be teaching, as Jack Ma suggests in the video below, the soft stuff.

Are you keeping up with the future?

Current education teaches from a knowledge-based curriculum from the past 200 years.

So, really, are you keeping up?

Are you shedding old systems?

Are you learning, unlearning, and relearning?

A summary of how and why Finland is rethinking education is here.
