Wonderful Brain

With an emphasis on contemporary issues and topics in learning, Wonderful Brain combines the knowledge and experiences I've gathered over 30 years in public and corporate education. Looking in the present and with a lens to the future formed by new theories and especially technology, the blog often takes on topics with a critical eye. There's no doubt I'm willing to challenge conventional practices but always with a disposition to make learning work better at improving performance - and in this way claim a chair at the corporate table. Comments and criticisms are welcome and I may be reached through the blog or directly. Please visit.
