The Daring Dozen 2008: Our Heroes
Even as the most optimistic activists in education begin to feel alone and unheard in the wilderness, we find evidence that the ranks of reformers are growing and their pleas for technology integration, project learning, integrated curriculum, collaborative learning, new methods of assessment are having more impact.
The trenches are full of folks whose courage, imagination, and inexhaustible spirit are bringing enlightenment to education, sometimes one school or one classroom at a time. In this, our annual roster of Daring Dozen and Global Six designees, we have selected a handful from a worthy multitude to celebrate in the magazine and on Edutopia.org. May their stories inform and inspire you as they have us.
