I came across an interesting quote today that talked about the possibility of experience being an obstacle to change and innovation. This scares me because of how divisive this could be. I fear someone would take this as a way of separating the cultures of a school as opposed to using this for reflection. Having said that…there is a lot if truth to that statement. People who cling to the old ways and don’t look into ways to keep up with the change around them can play the role of anchor. It sounds like a commercial but we are not going to solve today’s or tomorrow’s problems relying solely on past experience.
