one of my new least favorite words

25 Jun

have you ever seen the commercial where a few people in suits are handing out buzzword bingo cards before a meeting? education is no different, professional development specifically. i was reading seth godin’s blog today and he talks about one that i have noticed is getting lots of play and we may have the government to thank. transparency. godin talks about how wise it is to be transparent as a rule, he says…

Radical transparency often excites people because of the radical part (it’s new! it’s scary!) than the transparent part. Playing poker with your cards face up on the table might get you some attention at first, but in the long run it’s unlikely to help you win a lot of hands.

interesting stuff.  if nothing else, perhaps we can move on to another word, something totally different.  maybe translucent 🙂
