Knowledge, Learning, Community

The name Bob Sprankle has graced these pages on numerous occasions over the years, and with good reason. Like this post from 2007. He was well known for his Room 208 podcast, and for years of dedication to his students in Wells, Maine. I never met him, never really knew him, but he had an impact on me. Here's what I wrote that day in 2007: "I need to embrace the idea that life is like a video game. less serious, and certainly less permanent, than I tend to think it is." Let's never forget either these truths nor the people who teach them to us. Tributes are being posted on his Facebook page. Image: Bob Sprankle.
