Erik Meijer is one of the awesome people I get to meet while I worked at Microsoft. Earlier today he tweeting something that really made me think.
If you don't feel stupid, you are not learning fast enough.— Erik Meijer (@headinthebox) December 6, 2013
I think in some respects the message here applies to teachers more than students. Sometimes we get to the point where we think we know it all and that we are just “so smart.” It’s times like that when we have to ask ourselves if we are still learning.
Are we learning enough? Are we learning fast enough? Are we really going to be able to help our students be ready for the world if we are complacent in our own knowledge?
BTW yes, Erik is a colorful character. A brilliant mind and a fascinating speaker. If you get the chance to hear him talk take it.
