Grant Lichtmann is visionary educational leader who has embarked upon a 12 week adventure visiting 50 schools all across the nation to study innovation in education. He’s writing about all of his visits on his blog, The Learning Pond.
Early this morning, I saw Grant mention he’d be visiting the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, and so I quickly sent him a DM to see if he might be interested in making the hour drive down to Middletown to visit St. Andrew’s and meet up. Luckily, his schedule was free and Grant made it to campus just in time for school meeting.
Thanks to twitter and many shared connections, meeting Grant felt like meeting an old friend as we spent the afternoon chatting about the future of education, and then got to enjoy a meal together before Grant had to head back to Philadlephia.
