I am really looking forward to the new adventures that I will be engaging in in 2012. I am not sure what all of them will be but I am certain and excited what I am seeing in this upcoming year.
As has been the theme this year of the webcast I co-host, 21st Century Learning with Alex Ragone and arvind grover, I think that distance and online learning are going to continue to be huge. From the release of the National Association of Independent School’s (NAIS) Online Learning Guide to the white paper from the Online School for Girls, our conversations this fall have been very fruitful. It is to the end that I am personally venturing and modeling by taking online learning courses from the American School of Bombay and looking to finally pursuing my masters at one of the online programs this spring/summer. I believe that the scales are tipping and that this is an area that all K12.
I am also looking forward to all of the new professional and personal challenges which are going to be coming my way.
And one of my children has her golden birthday on the last day of the Mayan calendar. l definitely plan on celebrating at the party like there is no tomorrow.
So 2012 is shaping up to be a quite a year.
