Dr. Tim Tyson–another great keynote

OK, OK, OK…I know I’ve been full of suggestions, must-hears, must-reads, must-sees, but I’m going to add another to my list–if only to store my thoughts here for my own future reference.

I’ve been listening to back-episodes of Bob Sprankle’s Bit by Bit podcast for the last few days. Among insightful blog posts, he’s posted all sorts of wonderfully rich and thought-provoking podcasts, including several keynotes from various conferences he’s attended, including the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference last fall. Today I had a real treat hearing the keynote speaker from that conference (Bit By Bit Podcast #56), Dr. Tim Tyson of Mabry Middle School in Marietta, GA. Dr. Tyson just seems like the kind of administrator that I’d wish for to lead my daughter’s school–he’s a real visionary, I think. Visit his school’s web site, Mabryonline , if you have a chance. Wow!

Here’s a link to Dr. Tyson’s Keynote, entitled Moving from Personal Knowledge to Global Contribution , linked from Bob Sprankle’s great site. I think Tyson’s one of the most inspiring speakers around–how I WISH we could get someone like him to speak in our district! Wish, wish….
