May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far. Traditional Irish saying
I have only been to Ireland once before, but I was totally charmed. I am confident that the lucky individuals coming on the CoSN delegation will have an amazing experience. If the past tells us anything, it is that we will learn much about how ICT in education is being used in innovative ways to improve learning. And, we will forge strong friends, both those with whom we meet along the way, as those whom we travel with.
I want to thank Irene, as well as our partners in Ireland who have organized an amazing week.
Finally, as I say to every CoSN delegation, this will likely be a powerful learning experience (perhaps even life-changing), yet it is not truly about you. You are the eyes and ears for all the school leaders and policymakers from our country who cannot travel to Ireland. This blog, as well as the final report, is a way for them to share in the experience. Share what you see and learn.
