    Thanks Karen for setting up this group.

    I agree with Anne Sturgess that this book is a must read. I have enjoyed the many conversations that I have had both with my PLN and my work colleague. The conversation @edubookchatNZ the conversation at #edchatNZ and the conversations I have had with Rachel as well as the webinar. This is all great traction, a traction that shows the importance of being future focusse.

    next year I am planning to start a year 9 class under the title of Design. It is not Technology, nor Graphics, this no-baggage start has many opportunities. Students will work in groups to identify problems and present their solutions. I think that introducing 'wicked' problems will be part of the journey; a journey that has no easy answers.
