Cliff divers

EdmodoCon 2014 was an amazing experience. Being around motivated educators and the smart and talented Edmodo team was truly a privilege.

There’s so much that I learned, but the truth that resonates with me the most right now is the importance of assembling the right people to get a job done. Whether it’s teachers at a school or programmers at a business, the importance of finding innovative and fearless coworkers cannot be over exaggerated. As my new friend Nathan would say, we need to surround ourselves with (and be) “cliff divers”: people who are willing to try new things and think outside the box.

I’ll post a link to the EdmodoCon presentations as soon as Edmodo releases the videos in case you missed them. If you’re a teacher, it’ll be a great way to kick off the year.
