On August 4, my Twitter time line blew up with tweets from the Garland ISD Fundamental 5 Camp.  To share the great insights and thinking that occurred at the camp, over the next few days I will share the best tweets from participants, categorized by topic. Today I’m sharing the tweets leading up to and then from the keynote address, “Fundamental Change”.
