When asked to supply a Latin quotation to be used as an inscription at Newark State College in Union, New Jersey back in 1912, John Cotton Dana, couldn’t come up with one. Instead the librarian, also from Newark, New Jersey, composed one.
Who dares to teach, must never cease to learn”
As a passionate believer in the joy of lifelong learning and as an even more passionate believer that teachers in our schools need to not only maintain their own professional learning but act as role models to their students, this quote really speaks to me.
I came across the quote quite by accident when I literally bumped into this video. While it’s not a new one and uses the silent flip card technique that has been floating around for some time, it’s the first time I’ve seen teachers used as the presenters of 21st century education models and ….. pleasingly ….. a range of older to younger teachers are included.
The video speaks to me as I suspect it might to you.
