a practical perspective on issues education, beyond the status quo.
What does that mean?
I know I you’ve been wondering, “is there someone out there who can relate to what’s going on at my school, with my students and with me?” All these Facebook and Twitter seem to under gird motives of the next educational trend- common core, IB, STEM, STEAM, or who knows what. We get that, but if you are an inquisitive educator like we are, you just need a minute away from the noise, read a few quirky blog posts and get some resources while you’re at it.
If that’s you, welcome.
We are teachers, administrators, consultants, education leaders who like to talk about, vent all things education. We really like to focus on professional development and training, but don’t be surprised to find education policy rants or raves. While our roots are in Western-based learning environments, we do believe that global education makes perfect sense. that’s why we’re k.e.e.n. international.
We understand that our students have some huge shoes to fill. That’s why it’s important that we get our education systems right, or at least try to. Okay, we can agree that there is no one way to do education, but the more we talk about it, the better equipped we are to prepare our students to fill in those shoes.
So that’s what we’re all about – knowing how to empower and engage our students locally and globally, creating a network of information to help us help our students fill those shoes.
