There are a couple of more I might add to the list, but it is still a great group of educators and thinkers. Others I would consider are John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Paulo Freire, and Alfred North Whitehead.  Even with those nine, the list is likely incomplete.

This post discusses how big data is impacting education. In the discussion on big data the following question is raised: "How can we make our students (especially those online students) more successful? (In other words, retention, retention, retention.)" As she learned more about big data she wondered what happened to the human side of the equation, "the caring."

Although this article looks at online learning the words of the Dalai Lama ring true for all of us as educators. Read through them and see what you think. All words used in the image above were said by the Dalai Lama. My thanks to her for putting together some of his words and bringing them to our attention.
