A Fresh Agenda taps the knowledge of thought leaders, life hackers and those whose purpose is to Inspire!  We all get lost “in the shallows” of social media scrolling and multi-tasking our days away.  AFA is a tap on the shoulder, a refocusing on the most creative part of you. The world needs your deep work!

Jonathan Robinette M.Ed., warns of the unintended consequences of tech in the classroom in a recent article titled: 

Techno Trojan Horse



Thought for the Week:

“The ability to perform deep work is becoming increasingly rare at exactly the same time it is becoming increasingly valuable in our economy.  As a consequence, the few who cultivate the skill and then make it the core of their working life, will thrive.” 

-Cal Newport
