Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach

Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach | Ed Talk | Scoop.it
No matter how far we evolve from the little red schoolhouse, we cannot afford to sacrifice the foundation of education that is built upon the unique relationship between teacher and student.

 

This article is a sound reminder not to abandon sound pedagogy for for cool technology.  Yes, technology can assist, but it there needs to an underlying rationale for the inclusion of technology otherwise it is simply trying to spend our way out of a problem.

Common Core Assessment: Autopsy or Check Up

Common Core Assessment: Autopsy or Check Up | Ed Talk | Scoop.it
Understand in a clear, direct way, the importance of formative and summative Common Core assessments.

 

What’s the difference between a doctor’s appointment and an autopsy?

 

An autopsy, while helpful in some cases to determine what happened, is often too late to be truly useful in improving one’s health, or condition. What’s done is done—here’s what happened, don’t do it next time.

A check up on the other hand is a look at what’s happening as you go. It gives you time to see how you’re doing, and look at what you need to change—maybe drink less soda, or cut back on the sweets.
