112: Two Minute Timeout For Teachers… Be The Key
Welcome to Episode 112 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In today’s Two Minute Timeout for Teachers, I want to focus on a quote from Seth Godin that comes from his newest book entitled This is Marketing. “It doesn’t make any sense to make a key and then run around looking for a lock to open, the only productive solution is to find a lock and then fashion a key.” Seth believes that marketing is telling stories, doing work that matters, sharing value, and being an agent of change. If you ask me, there are a lot of similarities in this philosophy that describe what we do every day as teachers. Be encouraged to fashion the key that your students need to unlock the issues that bind them in their learning.
