Why do we do, what we do?
Very simple question, very difficult answer as it reaches back into our own personal histories, cultural histories and the events that have collided throughout to bring us to today. And, everyday we make choices as teachers, parents, humans that take us down a new historical path…
How do you feel about your path today? Settled, longing, confused, connected?
Most of us will agree that the 21st century is an exciting time to be alive, and also a confusing one as environmental, modern family issues and economic trials might ‘unsettle’ us a bit more than 50 or 100 years ago. I firmly believe that students, teachers, schools and publishers that are successful in the next 20 years will succeed because they embrace these challenges, are up front and honest about them, and in some way contribute to our global health in leaping over them.
To feel less unsettled, people need to connect, to participate in a positive direction.
How are you connecting? Share what you’re proud to be a part of, and of course this is where I’m so excited about my team’s personal efforts alongside Room to Read and our Pay What You Want approach… but when I write those words, they’re just words.
What is beyond those words? Amazing feats and impressive numbers.
In 10 years, Room to Read has built 10,000 libraries with 100,000 books taken out every week and 1,000,000 hours in the last year volunteered all over the world within Room to Read’s organization. Amazing. That generosity is settling. That community is enriching, and that is the direction that all of my team at Edulang is so excited about contributing to.
Oh… and there are others that are excited about our new direction too.
So how many of these 15 flags, do you recognize (this time)?
Join us in embracing the 21st century in this globally-oriented healthy direction. Spread the word, and share directly with those who will benefit.
oh… and I am definitely interested to see how many flags you knew
(I only got 8 this time)
