It’s Bammy Awards time again. Last year, I made some fairly pointed comments against the Bammy Awards.

Although I’m not quite ready to recant those statements entirely, I am prepared to do something I would have never considered before — attend this year’s Bammys.

Give me a platform

I don’t want an Oscars-type statue for being an educator (I haven’t even been nominated, to my knowledge), but since Bam Radio, the event’s sponsor, has rolled out its own TED-like talk, I’m eager to attend and share my own 4-minute speech.

I don’t need recognition. What I want is a platform. The new Bammy 3iTalks will provide exactly what I need — a stage with an audience of some of America’s most influential educators.

For years, I’ve been saying that with one major shift in education philosophy, teaching and learning will be impacted like never before. Sadly, even though I’ve written widely on the subject — books, blog posts and articles in national magazines — school leaders and teachers still fear this remarkably simple, yet revolutionary, change.

Perhaps my Bammy 3iTalk can eliminate this fear, once and for all.

So, with this blog post, I implore the Bammy 3iTalk selection team and fellow educators, interested in making a difference, to send me to the Bammy Awards.

Give me just four minutes to make America, and maybe the world, rethink teaching and learning. Our kids deserve it.
