This blog is an exploration of learning and education in the 21st century.
I’m blogging to reflect on my work as an educator, my life as a spouse and parent, and the media that I consume – books, news, television, movies, blogs, etc. My goal is that the writing I do here will help to hone my beliefs, becoming a better spouse, parent, teacher and administrator in the process.
My name is Alex Ragone and I’m the Head of School at AltSchool East Village 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 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.
