I am at the GAFE (Google Apps for Education) Summit in ChCh at the moment.  Thoughts prompted already ….

Adam Noir from Google is doing the opening keynote.  He mentioned the conecpt of "the rising tide lifts all boats".  True to some extent.  I also think about the polar opposite – "don't water the rocks".

don't water rocksThe challenge, as always, is finding the happy medium.  We have an obligation to the students of the teachers who are the proverbial rocks to support them to be the best that they can be in the same way as engaging with the frontrunners.  Do we though, need to go at the pace of the slowest runners?  Interesting challenges for school leaders and managers of change.
