School Evolutionary Stages | The concept of common global school evolution

Richard Jones's curator insight, August 19, 2013 4:24 PM

Within this website is a pdf on Evolutionary Changes of Schooling which is quite interesting, http://schoolevolutionarystages.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Evolutionary-Stages-of-Schooling4.pdf. Sadly no references provided.

 

As the preamble says, there is a great deal of variability in individual schools (which you would expect).  I wonder which you would consider the "key" indicators, if any.

Dear Students and Faculty: Please Go Digital

Dear Students and Faculty: Please Go Digital | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it
In a world where results matter, it's clear that the future of instructional resources is digital and we are pricing these resources at a much lower level than print.
Richard Jones's insight:

This is an interesting read from the publisher's perspective - one which we don't often consider.  For me the answer has been, for a couple of decades now, writing my own teaching resources.  In more recent times these find their way into class as blended courses on the LMS.  This is better than a digital copy of a textbook from a publisher because I have tracking data too.  Probably this is where publishers should head next.

Research suggests that homework for primary age students is problematic, the more so the younger the students. At the other end of the spectrum, students in year 12 gain significantly from productive work outside of the classroom. This chart is worthy of reflection about how to frame work outside the classroom.
