I recently read an article that made predictions about areas of emphasis in education for 2018. In the article the author specifically calls out a greater emphasis on the arts and STEAM, growth in blended learning and the importance of collegial professional learning. Let's discuss these ideas and make some predictions of our own!

This Week's Questions: (one posted each day)
