Hello everyone, on November 7th I want to explore what "proof" means. Who... needs what... to have something proven to them?

It's easy to think it's just about the statistics: x number of people have shown x amount of measurable improvement as a result of a learning program. That proves it works... right?

But is that enough? Is it enough for all of the people you need buy-in from?

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks Greg - I think Mark Twain had some memorable insights regarding statistics.

I read an interesting article titled "Why Facts Don't Matter." I will be interested to hear what others think - before - during and after you segment of Georgia LEARNS.

Paul - yes indeed Mark Twain had some pretty strong words on this topic.

Thank you so much for the reference to the article!

Greg - I look forward to your segment.  The word "proof" has such power from the pudding to a bottle of rum. It will be good to hear your thoughts on its meaning in the learning space. 

Thank you, Donna - I look forward to interacting with you on Thursday, and exploring this topic further together!
