School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS

School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS | Expectations for Student Learning | Scoop.it

Chicago Public Schools chief Jean-Claude Brizard - In a packed auditorium before the ceremonial ringing of the first bell to start a new school year, Brizard told students that a longer school day will bring more academic rigor..

 

"That means more AP (biology), more support for students who need it," Brizard told the crowd. "For elementary schools, it'll mean more recess, more math, more social studies."

 

Lindblom, a selective enrollment school for 7th through 12th graders, saw its school day increase by 41 minutes four days a week. That added time will push the end of the school day to 3:44 on most days and give students more time for classroom instruction scheduled around their needs, said Principal Alan Mather.

"This is the first in a three part series that looks at the impact of technology on kids and teens.

 

As an elementary school teacher, Warren Buckleitner was quick to embrace the brand-new, intimidating tool in his 1980s classroom: An Apple II computer.

 

“I saw really how powerful it was for my students,” Buckleitner said. “I had a few kids who were very hard to teach, and I was able to use that computer to help them get a good report card.”

 

Today, Buckleitner is the founder of the Children’s Technology Review, an online resource that reviews all kinds of technology aimed at young kids. Now 55, his focus has shifted a lot from the Number Crunchers game that came on that first Apple II, but his vision hasn’t budged."

Using Students' Assumptions to Challenge Their Thinking

Using Students' Assumptions to Challenge Their Thinking | Expectations for Student Learning | Scoop.it
With increasing stridence, college students and their parents frame their educational expectations with a consumer paradigm, viewing professors as their employees, universities as consumer markets, and degrees as commodities. As a humanities professor, I have always bristled at this equation. However, I see a way to use this metaphor for good purpose. Rather than fight this flawed mentality, I present the consumer model during one of our first class sessions and engage students in an exploration of its applicability to the educational enterprise.

Why Our Old Lens On Learning Will Fail A New Generation... And What You Can Do About It Now

Why Our Old Lens On Learning Will Fail A New Generation... And What You Can Do About It Now | Expectations for Student Learning | Scoop.it
Re-imagining youth learning must begin with an understanding of the world our children and youth are stepping into. This first requires a major reality check. That’s because most of us see a very different world than the one awaiting our young people. We see the world we entered, which is [...]
Rudy Azcuy's insight:

Given the new reality for the workforce we are preparing our students for, there are implications for the learning needs of today’s youth. First, the skills needed to navigate today's world is very different from those needed in the world we grew up in.  Today's world will increasingly rely on collaboration for success and contribution, we must actively help every child to master the skills that will be necessary to meet these new challenges. The world has become flatter.
