We are an evolving group of educators who have come together to learn from a diverse group of gifted, interesting, and sometimes provocative, learned people in the world. We’ve learned from the likes of Edgar Schein, Peter Block, Richard Sheridan, Stan Slap, and poet David Whyte; provocative educators David Berliner, Gene Glass, and Yong Zhao; linguist George Lakoff; and researchers and professors Carol Dweck, Andy Hargreaves, Art Costa Bena Kallick, Jon Saphier, Yong Zhao, and Tony Wagner.

Our blog is about current issues around learning. We offer reviews of books we’re reading. And we focus on “New Rules”– the changes in attitude and behavior we educators must exhibit to survive in our world of surprising changes.
