Where am I?

An excellent question. Someway somehow, you managed to navigate your way to Nick's Education Spot, a site devoted to all things Nick Ryan and education related. At present, there is very little here, but the content is interesting to find its way here eventually. Thank you for your visit, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to leave me a line to

Education evolution recently published this article which sets out some of their ideas for education by taking a large step closer to the 21st century. I say a big step, because today the traditional school model is roughly a conception of the 19th century. Talk about old school ...

August is already here, and the beginning of a new school year is only one month. Yikes! My condolences to those who have been hardest hit by the disaster d'hier 35W bridge in Minneapolis that have just extended the shuttle every day for the next two years. Having spent 4 years at the University of Minnesota, I spent much time exploring the riverfront area where the collapse occurred, and led over this bridge several times. Scary. I was only a mile or so from the site where it happened and had to withstand a conference fleeing to go rubberneck at the scene. Fortunately, the University of Minneapolis and the ERT has done an excellent job managing the scene.

The week of 7 / 23 brings the Edvisions Co-op Summer Institute in Henderson, MN. Edvisions is a teacher of cooperation that teachers through work in cooperation with school boards to the staff of small schools. The summer institute is a week-long training and learning Edvisions seminar for members. Many talented people who will lead small seminars and learning sessions. Aaron Grimm of the Edvisions Off-Campus High School and I do some sessions on networking technology. I look forward to learning a lot of many people.
