Having been a professional photographer and technology integrator, I think this article is insightful and relevant. It is great to see that, because of technology, more and more people are creating great images as well as viewing them. I also appreciate George Couros‘s observations on photography being such a catalyst for change. I certainly have had to adapt to the evolution of photography from film to digital. It would be difficult to keep up an interest in photography by doing things “the way the were always done”. I just ordered my first mirrorless camera. I can wait to try it out.

Sometime I run into an article that says what’s on my mind better than I could ever say it. “10 Essential Characteristic of a 21st Century Educator” is just such an article. I especially like George Couros’ observation that “It is not technology that has the biggest influence on what we do; it is the speed of change being thrust upon us.” Mr Couros, the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset” goes on to list ten characteristics that he considers crucial for 21st Century educators. They are relationship builder, learner, inclusive, reflective, networked, innovator, leader, storyteller, designer, artist. “10 Essential Characteristics of a 21st Century Educator” This article is worth reading. Definitely food for thought.
