Fits & Fugues

Education can be so much more.

Fits & Fugues

I like the two definitions of Fugue in Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1) version:

1. Music. a polyphonic composition based upon one, two, or more themes, which are enunciated by several voices or parts in turn, subjected to contrapuntal treatment, and gradually built up into a complex form having somewhat distinct divisions or stages of development and a marked climax at the end.  2. Psychiatry. a period during which a person suffers from loss of memory, often begins a new life, and, upon recovery, remembers nothing of the amnesic phase.

The blog format lends itself quite nicely to the music definition while the psychiatry definition has multiple intersections and implications to the online world and the culture it has created, which we’ll explore more here especially in the context of education.

This periodic blog (thus the “Fits” part) will explore the converging and diverging pieces of the educational world and how it will struggle to meet the needs of those in the educational community who are citizens of a constantly emergent future. I welcome your ideas, thoughts, and comments.
