While there, I had the pleasure of visiting with Peter Reynolds (@peterhreynolds) of Fablevision Learning (@FableLearn). Peter is the author and/or illustrator of many children's books including Ish, The Dot, The North Star, So Few of Me, I'm Here, and Judy Moody books. His books are inspirational, to say the least.
In recent years, Peter illustrated the phrase "Create Bravely", which is shown above. I was immediately drawn to that phrase. It spoke to me. For years I have been trying to put fun and joy back into the teaching culture. This phrase leads strongly in that direction. His Create Bravely posters are hanging in a number of classrooms in our district.
A few years ago, I was inspired by Rushton Hurley (@rushtonh) to "Innovate Wildly" and this website and project were born. I shared my story with Peter at the ISTE Conference. I told him how the "Create Bravely" phrase complemented "Innovate Wildly". He agreed. He then offered to illustrate "Innovate Wildly" for us. I was beyond thrilled to receive his illustration for use in our efforts.
Thank you, Peter, for joining our party.
Keep changing the world!
