I’m semi-happy with how this turned out. I lost a track twice thanks to not paying attention and some help from my kids. You might think hitting save a lot is a good idea but it also wipes out your undo options. It might have been better but waiting for good enough is the reason I have several hundred draft posts on this blog. It’s all in good fun anyway. Anyway, here is mashup of Gardner Campbell’s Open Ed 2012 keynote and Tighten Up by the Black Keys. It is not necessarily representative of Gardner or the The Black Stripes but it ought to encourage you to check out both.

Jac de Haan sets me straight regarding how confused I’ve been about the motivation of large corporations to sponsor teaching academies. . . Regardless of what you believe the motivation behind sponsoring such events may be, these companies are recognizing that many teachers put countless unpaid hours into professional development and investing hundreds of millions of dollars in education. Oh. Corporations are doing this to recognize unpaid teacher PD. That’s so very kind of them. It all makes sense now. I take back everything I said about educators being confused about how this whole thing works.
