"Harley tore down the existing plant and built a new one. Unlike most factories I’ve seen lately, the new plant in York has people everywhere. There are no robots on the main assembly line (they have various peripheral jobs); instead, hundreds of workers, operating in teams of five or six, manually build each motorcycle.

The New Kid is a terrific graphic novel about middle school and modern culture. The writing and format of the book make for an engaging, compelling story that could not have easily been shared another way. The middle school students at my school will have the opportunity to read the book and meet the author soon.

Lark Suite is a new all-in-one communication and productivity platform that was built as an internal tool for its parent company (ByteDance) and will likely continue to make inroads at businesses. I set up a trial and the feature I am most interested in checking out is the 'just-in-time' translation for organizations working in different countries.
Here is an excerpt of my TED Masterclass Showcase presentation from ISTE 2019. Right now in order to watch the full video you need to be an ISTE member and access the content on the ISTE website. The videos may be published on YouTube as well in the near future.
As part of the assigned reading for an administrative retreat, I got to enjoy Brené Brown's daretolead.brenebrown.comDare to Lead. I flagged many sections of the book as I found that she provides really helpful sets of questions that help guide thinking for any given project - big or small.
I was intrigued by the buckets and skills provided in this article on the World Economic Forum Blog. It was shared by a colleague last week and it continues to seems like a helpful way to organizing thinking around relevant programs in schools.
