Book Review: Rewiring Education by Couch, Towne and Wozniak

Rewiring Education: How Technology Can Unlock Every Student’s Potential

Rewiring Education is one of the more interesting books I've read for a while; although to be fair, it is possible there is a lot of confirmation bias, because it lined up with most of what I already think about education.

I'm definitely going to have to go back and re-read parts of this book to really put it into application. The book … Continue reading Book Review: Principles on Work and Life by Ray Dalio
