Why Frugal Innovations? CHURNING

We churn.  We are churned.  We live in churning.  

Too many demands for our time, energy, attention.

Most churning advances nothing we care about.
Much churning advances nothing at all.

Most of us still care deeply about improving teaching and learning.
But only in ways that can preserve or enhance what we value most - professionally and personally.

We are too often overwhelmed by the gap between what we hope and what we can do.

That's why we need Frugal Innovations.  Now.

What to do?  Keep Trying.  Keep asking:  
"What are a few good things we can do soon?"
