Wayne Gretzky's father once told him to "Skate where the puck's going, not where it's been." This same analogy can be used in education. "Educators need to move to where learning is going and not stay where it's been."I read this on Twitter (@tomwhitby) and thought it was worth mentioning.
Many of us really need to focus on the future and how to make our teaching more attainable and not be stuck in what may or may not have worked up until now. Innovation, creativity and flexibility are very important characteristics in this field.
