Zack Matere: Growing Knowledge Video

Early September is a time I often associate with the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and the promise of new friendships.  It marks a time of new beginnings, and a general re-commitment to our common pursuit of knowledge.  In the spirit of “back to school” time I share with you this short video, which I think captures the essence of what education should be.  True education inspires us to turn information into knowledge – for it is knowledge that can change our world for the better.  To quote Zack: “Information is powerful. ….But it is how we use it that will define us.”
