Karl Fisch’s Incredible New Pink Project

Karl Fisch has set up a phenomenal project with ninth graders studying Dan Pink's book, A Whole New Mind. I'm going to be participating in February.

I love the design and creativity he's used in fleshing out this project and expect some major innovations to emerge with this project.

Oh, and during week 7, Dan Pink will be blogging with the class. It is going to be a great project!

Take a look at his blog post and his wiki.

We must continue to reinvent the classroom in meaningful ways that also remove the boundaries between our students and the greater world at large. We must be creative, well planned, and intentional (these things don't just “happen” as I can personally attest.)

Are you thinking global? Are you thinking big? Are you creating life changing, engaging projects to expand the minds of your students?

Thanks Vicki. It’s going to be fun, but it’s also going to be a huge learning experience – I’m expecting lots of glitches and “Dang, we should’ve thought of that”‘s along the way.

Also, it really should be referred to as Anne Smith’s and Maura Moritz’s project as much as it is mine – they’re doing all the real work!
