Julie with our dear friend Terry Freedman from the UK.

Just up on the ISTE website, my dear friend and Flat Classroom co-founder, Julie Lindsay, is now an ISTE board member. Thank you to everyone who supported her run.

And most of all, thank you to Julie who let herself run again. This was her third run. Most people give up after the first time. This is certainly one thing that characterizes Julie – she never gives up and persists.

How would your life be different if you just did something ONE MORE TIME?

Thank you to the network of Tweeters, bloggers, and teachers. Although this means I'll see less of Julie, I think that she will do great work on the ISTE board.

Great news of Julie’s appointment to ISTE. Vicki and Julie, your innovative and cutting edge use of technology for education evidenced primarily in the Flat Classroom projects, means that ISTE has a fabulous advocate for the amazing power that technology can have in education – especially to connect and interact and collaborate with others across the globe. I love your story of Julie’s perserverance, as often after one ‘knock back’ and especially two ‘knock backs’ most of us would give up.

Thank you for your ongoing encouragement! Yes, Julie’s perseverance teaches us all a lesson. We cannot give up but must move forward, especially when we have beliefs about what we should and can do to improve something.
