Something Everyone Should Do

The Learning Circuits Blog Question for December already is getting some really great posts. Finally, after two months of writing questions that elicited at least a few responses of "that's the wrong question" - I think Dave Lee and I came up with a pretty good set of questions. Sure, maybe they are still wrong, but
The exercise itself is literally something everyone should do.

It's a bit like a fall planning cycle, but for yourself. Read a couple of the posts so far. For example, take a look at Karl Kapp's post. One comment to help entice you from his post:
I think the field is a drift. We aren’t sure what our foundational models are, we don’t know if they are effective, we have few publicized alternatives and we have new technology thrown at us at break-neck speed. We need to figure something out.

And then carve out 30-60 minutes to think through the questions:
What will you remember most about 2006?
What are the biggest challenges for you/us as we head into 2007?
What are your predictions for 2007?
It's definitely worth it as a personal exercise.

I agree the process is valuable and recommend it to everyone to explore. I have already generated 4 pages and counting -- on the forecast question, and another half page each for personal highlights and challenges. There's more to come as I consider the challenges for our professions posed by the forecast I'm accumulating. The next hurdle will be for me to converge on a concise posting or two from this abundance of possibilities.

I look forward to seeing what you write. I had somewhat the same issue - trying to narrow down to what was important. Of course, that's an important part of the exercise.
