Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph

Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph | Educational Articles | Scoop.it

Teachers still stand up in front of pupils and read out from their own lesson plans; kids still turn up to classrooms, sit behind desks and listen, taking notes; assessments remain based on reports filed by teachers; exams are at set times, once a year. There is no systematic use of the internet, software or gaming technology to aid learning, no proper data analysis to monitor pupils’ progress and to understand better how to convey understanding, no automation, no economies of scale, no productivity gains, and no real progress.

The myth of markets in school education - Grattan Institute | Educational Articles | Scoop.it
drsastry's insight:

The myth of markets shows that neither competition nor an excessive focus on autonomy is the best way to improve Australian schools.

The world’s best systems have varying levels of autonomy but they all articulate the best way to teach and learn, then make sure they have the best teachers to carry it out.

Is it time to transform Education: Invest to Invent Education | Educational Articles | Scoop.it
drsastry's insight:

Modernisations not mean equipping the schools with modern gadgets.Do machines change human psychology and behaviours? No, the purpose of machine is to facilitate but not enable to think. Only method is bringing back the teachers with self-development of thought and knowledge.
