It is nice to be important, but…
It is even more important to be nice. This weekend as the 2020 Summer Olympics (adding to our collection confusion around the concept of time during a pandemic) came to a close, I was struck by the preponderance of stories and reflections on the notion that, “it is nice to be important, but it is even more important to be nice.” It seems to me that we can never be reminded of this adage too frequently. Many athletes despite adversity, embraced their competitors and emerged metaphorically victorious. If we are going to recover from the pandemic victorious, we need to make sure we are continuing to be mindful about education, reimaging how we access to learning tools, and how technology can transform the future.
