Six reasons for educational change!

Six reasons for educational change! | All Things Dyslexia and Reading | Scoop.it
Knowledge is the biggest value humans have and still we let our educational system go down the drain. A lot of talk, no change! We need to understand that change is needed to improve education. The solution lies beyond the knowledge of teachers.
Kelly McClymer's insight:

This would work well for kids with reading difficulties, because it would address the lack of skill growth by deliberately doing what is needed for each individual to learn to read. Right now, so many kids with dyslexia (smart kids!) spend the first few years in school memorizing words instead of learning to decode text. This catched up to them beginning in third grade, when texts become more complex and necessary. They struggle to do what worked earlier (memorize words), and start to feel really stupid.

Gamification of education - I think I'm in favour of this but would students have to come down with a bump when learning things that haven't been gamified?  Will the world of work need to be gamified too?
