“Initially I wasn’t too excited about visiting the V&A’s Alexander McQueen exhibition, but trying to be a dutiful husband, I took the plunge. I walked out, a little late to the party, A huge fan.
On three levels I was inspired:
- As an English teacher I was inspired by the way that he took different periods of time and made them utterly relevant to the modern age.
- As a teacher who has always, first and foremost, battled to keep creative thinking and teaching at the heart of what I do, I was inspired to see a man do just that; there was nothing but passionate energy in every piece of work.
- Finally, in my position as a technology leader, I walked into the second room of the exhibit and saw this quote on the wall:
“You’ve got to know the rules to break them. That’s what I’m here for, to demolish the rules but keep the tradition.”
Never has anyone so perfectly summarised what I have always tried to propose as a starting point for the integration and roll-out of technology in schools.” To read further please click here:
