Beyond Failure

My new post for DMLcentral focuses on the way storytelling in education can move past traditional constructs of failure in schools. Also at play, here is an inquiry into language systems as they define self and place in schools. For this post, this deals only briefly with the word “disruption” and this is something I’ve written about previously when taking issue with the phrasing “new media.” I’ve been reviewing some of this writing and fret occasionally at the dewy optimism that the posts suggest. While I’m hopeful and see these ideas sketched out as realistic and feasible, I by no means hope that they convey this work as easy. The kinds of shifts in disposition within and about education that my DMLcentral posts suggest require ongoing and critical support from all stakeholders within global educational ecologies.
