Cirque du School?!

I am currently in Vegas celebrating my 30th birthday with my wonderful family! Last night my husband took everyone to see the Beatle's LOVE show by Cirque du Soleil and it was amazing! This is not our first Cirque du Soleil show, every time we come to Vegas (which is not often at all) we try to see one. (So far my favorite is O!)

Anyway, I was just blown away by the show (which I am every time I see one) and it got me thinking about education (most things do :)). I was thinking about how amazing the people at Cirque du Soleil are - it is this amazing combination of physical strength and flexibility (and a lack of fear of heights), beautiful make up and costumes, moving music, and incredible technology.

Before Cirque du Soleil started no one would have guessed that a circus could be like that. Now, it is a billion dollar company.

So, how does this relate to education? Well, it shows me that we have to think outside of the box and do something amazing and beautiful and moving in order to change the game in education. How do we do this?

I have no freaking clue! But I can't stop thinking about it! If someone can do this is will be a game changer.

Maybe you think there has already been a game changer in education. If you do, tell me what you think it is - I would love to hear about it!

As for me, I will be thinking and thinking about this for the rest of the trip (and beyond!).

PS - Did you notice how many times I used the word "amazing"? I am still in awe of the show!
