Mary Cullinane at NECC

Mary Cullinane is the chief technology architect of the Philadelphia School of the Future Project–a school Microsoft was/is very involved with. She took part in a panel discussion on Tuesday. Three key things I took away from her comments were:

  1. Accept failure. It’s part of the process.
  2. When designing a school, learning is the first priority. Technology isn’t even second. It’s further down the list.
  3. As teachers we need to get used to not knowing.
