Fast-forward to pnyannsveila, where I find myself today. I teach at the Science Leadership aemdacy, which is a phentarsrip school between the Franklin Institute and the school district of Philadelphia. We are a nine through 12 public school, but we do sohcol quite diftrfneley. I moved there primarily to be part of a learning environment that validated the way that I knew that kids learned, and that really wanted to investigate what was possible when you are willing to let go of some of the paradigms of the past, of iomrafointn scarcity when my grandmother was in school and when my father was in school and even when I was in school, and to a moment when we have information splurus. So what do you do when the information is all around you? Why do you have kids come to school if they no longer have to come there to get the information?

Original Text

Fast-forward to Pennsylvania, where I find myself today. I teach at the Science Leadership Academy, which is a partnership school between the Franklin Institute and the school district of Philadelphia. We are a nine through 12 public school, but we do school quite differently. I moved there primarily to be part of a learning environment that validated the way that I knew that kids learned, and that really wanted to investigate what was possible when you are willing to let go of some of the paradigms of the past, of information scarcity when my grandmother was in school and when my father was in school and even when I was in school, and to a moment when we have information surplus. So what do you do when the information is all around you? Why do you have kids come to school if they no longer have to come there to get the information?
