"We need different, not better..." | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills.
* We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second.
* We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

 

… the idea of a fully networked, progressive learning environment would for the vast majority constitute *different* and would require us... to redefine the future.
