flow quote


aug 2015 – Blake interviews Nancy and Thomas:

agile learning centers… like a lean democratic/free school.. ie: using tools/software to shorten/lessen meetings.. not focused on policing each other

agile – in software development.. moving from a place of managers/authoritarianism.. to more freedom and autonomy.. so in ed – starting with kids and realizing they have all the inherent qualities already in them… so software to help them ie: set intentions for the day. if we had a hidden curriculum.. self-development..

software is like trello – a to do list ish

hard to find adults that can help kids see the done column w/o placing judgment…

required – weekly meetings.. 2 a week. mon and fri

36 min – on using conbon board – what do you want to do today..

do whatever you want.. curiosity as your label.. to find your tribe. as the day.
