Seeing Beyond Means…

Freeing yourself from old beliefs…

Getting a new sense of the “future possible.” It means looking BEYOND the technologies and toys to their positive use.  It is being willing to accept new paradigms and perspectives — about yourself, about adults, about kids, about society

…listening to youth…

Our kids are the future. They will shape their world more than we will. A prime way Marc “sees BEYOND…”  is through his deep contacts with youth. Marc is especially good at is talking with kids, and eliciting their hidden ideas—which are many, and good. One of Marc’s central observations is how badly we (mostly unconsciously) treat our kids — we disrespect them, under-appreciate them and truly under-estimate what they
WE think we listen — but THEY think we don’t.



… and seeing the exact same things — but in very new ways

People can see things that look the same on the surface, and  not realize they are now different underneath. 
The prime example is our kids,. If we look at them differently, we will do different things.
