Since I started the Schrockguide in June of 1995, a lot has changed. However, I am not retired from providing you with great resources and ideas to support teaching and learning! I have moved all the support information for my presentations over to Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything, located here, to help you as you think about the practical and pedagogical uses of technology.

I'll start by telling you something you don't have to know in high school: what you want to do with your life. If I were back in high school and someone asked about my plans, I'd say that my first priority was to learn what the options were. It might seem that nothing would be easier than deciding what you like, but it turns out to be hard, partly because it's hard to get an accurate picture of most jobs. But there are other jobs you can't learn about, because no one is doing them yet. And yet every May, speakers all over the country fire up the Standard Graduation Speech, the theme of which is: don't give up on your dreams. What they really mean is, don't get demoralized. Which is an uncomfortable thought. I'm not saying there's no such thing as genius. Upwind Ambition Corruption Now
