I grew up in Tinytown, Texas (okay, Waller actually) where everyone knew my last name and we had cows across the street from our high school.
Once upon a time, you could have a conversation with a kid that went like this:
When students and parents are sent text messages on a regular basis, student achievement improves.
You are in fifth grade. The last bell rings, and as your herd is trampling into the hall, YOUR MOM suddenly appears right there at Mrs. Harper’s classroom door. Oh, the sheer panic, as you murmur Why is SHE here, but let’s be honest, you already know what you did, and now you are busted.
Some ideas are worth sharing – and that’s the belief that the organization known as TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) was founded upon in 1984.
