"In this ever-increasing technological age, we are faced with some amazing capabilities in education."
In this particular journal entry, the author discusses the necessity of addressing the whole child in education. I strongly agree with this, after spending almost half of my life teaching in one capacity or another. Thinking beyond the needs of the standardized test, the final assessment, we must remember that the children we teach are complex people with complex needs. They cannot be approached as vessels intended to carry information about individual subjects in individual containers, but rather as complex beings who bring knowledge into their experiences both in and out of the classroom.
