Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, March 31, 2013 7:04 PM
‘Traditional’ (here) means centrally dictated, curriculum based teaching.“Contemporary” (here) means teacher driven, student-centric teaching.Traditional teaching focuses on short term recall, and is highly focused on measurability.Contemporary teaching focuses on students taking ownership of their learning and using real, useful materials.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, February 27, 2013 7:22 PM

One of the best articles I've read lately.  

 

"People have great intentions.  They just don't have vision."  Isn't this how people treat LIFE, as well?  They hop on the train and keep going.  No stopping.  No reflecting.  Lots of lemmings with empty smiles on the way to the end.  Expecting something big when in fact, the train just stops.  

 

What is our purpose?  As leaders, we should be the best problem solvers and finders there are.  This IS what we want our kids to be; our teachers to be.  Our schools to support.  We can't lead if we live in yesterday or hope for a better tomorrow without DOING something to make it happen.  

 

"The important thing is to not stop questioning", Einstein said.  When we stop questioning, we cease to grow.  Stagnation scares the heck out of me more than death does.
