    “The contents of this “playbook” are the result of an eight week effort during May-June of 2020 to inform a subset of CIP’s return-to-school planning… This document provides… A compendium of case studies, research, and expert perspectives meant to inform and support CIP’s thinking regarding select elements of its return-to-school planning; A snapshot in time based on publicly available information; CIP should note the “current as of” dates indicated on the top left of pages that may no longer be relevant as situations evolve. This document does not provide… Any recommendations on specific actions CIP should or should not take, or a comprehensive set of topics or options for CIP to consider as it advances its return-to-school planning.

    “This is a mini film, Numb by me. I did this for a school project but I'm really happy with how it came out, so I'm posting it here.”












Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.

Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
