As I mentioned in a recent post, with my new position, I have been wondering about the tagline for the blog. The tagline is what appears just under the title of the blog, which is Point A to Point B (see the top of the page). I have decided since my new role expands beyond technology tools to curriculum, I will expand the tagline as well.
The previous tagline was:
“Technology is transforming learning. All you need is an idea of where you are and where you need to go.”
The new tagline is:
“Learning is Job #1”
This tagline really reflects my personal bias – learning, in any form, is what school (and life) is about. I think this is a fitting time to once again share my favorite quote:
The best thing for being sad, replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, is to learn something. Thatâ€™s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then â€“ to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.
~Merlin to Wart (Young Arthur) in The Once and Future King by T.H. White
I am really looking forward to how the blog grows in a new direction!
