This blog is an exploration of learning in the 21st century.
I’m blogging to reflect on the work that I do as an educator and the media that I consume – books, news, television, movies, blogs, etc. I hope that this space will allow me to hone my beliefs and be a better teacher and administrator because of it.
My name is Alex Ragone and I’m the Director of Middle and Upper School at City and Country School, a PK-8 progressive school in New York City. I serve on the NAIS 21st Century Curriculum Task Force. I was the co-chair of the NYSAIS Education and Information Technology (NEIT) Planning group and worked on a number of school accreditation teams. I regularly present at conferences with a focus on school change. I earned a Masters Degree in Instructional Design and Media from Teachers College and a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from George Washington University. I currently live in New Jersey with my wife and three children.
