Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Education | 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. <===
