"Worthy assessments should reflect the broader capabilities that students need to thrive in the 21st century."

Shona Leitch's curator insight, September 29, 2013 6:29 PM

I love this article, it has a very strong message and opens up the importance of not just "soft skills" but those hard to teach ones, creativity, innovation and in my discipine entrepreneurship.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:04 PM

One cannot think without content to think with and about. No doubt that students need foundational skills in order to actually use critically thinking and problem solving skills. But when in their life will they need to remember the facts from the textbook? How will they use what they memorized directly from a book? In education today, the focus is on quality control- making the grade, having top scores. The focus has shift away from teaching students those lifelong learning skills that they really need like creativity, common sense, how to win or lose, work ethic, etc. At the end of the day, our assessments of students need to match what they will be expected to do and perform in the real world. No perfect score will teach students how to be a good worker or how to follow their dreams without defeat.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 14, 2014 3:25 PM

This is an interesting way to graph out the urban footprints of various cities from around the world. This also shows how the United States has a number of the largest urban centers in the world. Along the top, New York, Chicago, LA, and Miami are massive compared to cities like Hong Kong. This shows how in the United States there are massive amounts of urban growth. Even in China where their population is one of the worlds biggest, Hong Kong a major city only has 7.1 million. In the United States, for the past century cities have been growing and this graph shows that.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 14, 2014 6:40 PM

These visuals really help to show that the size of a city doesn't necessarily correspond with it's population. Many years ago the trend was the larger the city in turn it would posses a larger population than a physically smaller city. Today this no longer holds true, in fact many smaller cities vastly out populate large sprawling cities. Most of these mega-cities in Asia and Latin America are incredibly over build and densely packed surrounded by miles of slums.

Educating in poverty

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 16, 2013 7:47 AM

Do you find this information surprising?

BrianCaldwell7's curator insight, April 5, 8:20 AM

This video shows the place matters; a Washington D.C. educator shows how food deserts and other spatial problems of poverty impact his students on a daily basis.  We usually look at life expectancy data at the national scale and that obscures some of the real issues of poverty in developed countries.  Above is a map that shows the Gini index which measures the degree of economic inequality (the Gini coefficient was recently added to the APHG course content for the Industrialization and Economic Development unit).  Here are some maps and data from the World Bank that utilizes the Gini Index as well as an interactive Gapminder graph.
