Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
We need to have higher expectations for ourselves as educators, parents, and policymakers; and we need to have higher expectations for our students -- they will meet the bar wherever it is set.

 

To address this challenge we must revolutionize what we teach, how we teach and how we measure the results. Fundamental and rapid change is necessary -- now, not sometime in the future. Solving our nation's education crisis will take commitment and investment in proven approaches to project-based learning.

 

We have to convert our thinking from maximizing content coverage and "teaching to the test" to using methods that help students understand the applications of what they learn.

 

===> We must help students develop problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills -- skills that will prepare them to compete in the global economy. <===

Senti na pele o que me faltou na educação que recebi. Desejo que as coisas mudem e que os alunos de hoje saiam das escolas realmente preparados para enfrentar o futuro.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 2, 2014 12:14 PM

We have to educate in ways today that prepare students and teachers for the world they live now and tomorrow. We seem to lack the will and the leadership. We have talking head syndrome. The best job an educator could have is to be in the classroom, not be a principal.

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, January 9, 2014 2:27 PM

While short, it is a great motivational piece to read.  The project-based learning is the way of the new Science standards too.

Performance-based Assessment in an Online Course: Comparing Different Types of Information Literacy Instruction | Project MUSE 

Performance-based Assessment in an Online Course: Comparing Different Types of Information Literacy Instruction | Project MUSE  | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
This study investigates whether the type of instruction (a single face-to-face librarian-led instruction, instructor-led instruction, or an online IL course - the Online Research Lab) has an impact on student information literacy gains in a Freshman English Composition program. A performance-based assessment was carried out by analyzing bibliographies in a required controversy paper. Descriptive, correlation, and regression analysis showed that the type of instruction did impact the quality of the bibliographies. Students in the online IL course had higher quality bibliographies than those students who received a one-session face-to-face instruction. [Article has a paywall]

Attention Students: Put your laptops away

Attention Students: Put your laptops away | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

As laptops become smaller and more ubiquitous, and with the advent of tablets, the idea of taking notes by hand just seems old-fashioned to many students today. Typing your notes is faster — which comes in handy when there's a lot of information to take down. But it turns out there are still advantages to doing things the old-fashioned way.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 17, 9:57 AM
Writing and keyboarding use the brain differently which may help explain the retention aspect. This is one of those digitial literacy areas that teachers have the ability to help students with. The key will be support from the school managers and consultants who fancy themselves expert in everything classroom, althought they are not there. It will require retaining cursive writing, which some have argued to get rid of teaching this skill.

Students do need to learn how to use the tools at their disposal. That does require teachers who are able to guide them. With rapid changes, this is a challenge and raises questions. Do teachers have time to prepare well? What supports are in place for teachers to learn?
