In an Era of Global Competition, What Exactly Are We Testing For?

In an Era of Global Competition, What Exactly Are We Testing For? | Educ 230 Midterm Assignment | Scoop.it

"In this era of global competition, test scores are used as the primary benchmark to call out which countries will produce “successful” students. Knowing that American students are competing against a global pool of the best and brightest has led education leaders to focus more on how they score on international tests compared to students from other countries."

"The best resource for a student that thinks they hate math is a great teacher. But what about the best resource for that teacher? Beyond an active imagination, ability to relate to students, and an incredibly strong content knowledge themselves, it may not get much better than Numberphile ."

Then and Now: Education Technology in 1963 vs 2013

Then and Now: Education Technology in 1963 vs 2013 | Educ 230 Midterm Assignment | Scoop.it

"John F. Kennedy made a strong push for education reform focused on science and technology during his presidency. His enthusiasm for STEM education was fueled, in part, by the Soviet Union’s 1957 launch of Sputnik. When Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in hours after Kennedy’s death he maintained the momentum behind Kennedy's mission to boost the government’s support of STEM education. Nine presidents later, the United States is in the midst of a new “Sputnik Moment” sparked by the country’s low global rankings in math and science. As of 2012, American students rank 31st in mathematics and 23rd in science."

How To Use Multiple Choice Testing As a Learning (not Assessment) Tool | Educ 230 Midterm Assignment | Scoop.it

"For my proposed Coursera course on the History and Future of Higher Education--intended for high school and college teachers, students, parents, and students themselves--I am designing every segment not only to give history and analysis of the forms of education we have inherited from the Industrial Age that invented so many of them, I also plan to pass on concrete advice I've gleaned from the thousands of teachers I've met of how to learn with, through, around, and often despite the clunky apparatus of contemporary education."

"How do we continue to build a world of creators and not just consumers? That’s a question we at the National Writing Project, along with our friends at the Mozilla Foundation, repeatedly ask ourselves and our networks of co-conspirators. One way is to learn to be a maker of the web, through a lived understanding of the building blocks of websites: Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)."
