For the Love of Learning: Making School Worse, Faster

For the Love of Learning: Making School Worse, Faster | Trees | Scoop.it
Poor Pedagogy + Technology = Accelerated Malpractice: Classroom management and tracking programs like ClassDojo are used to elicit compliant behaviour and are sold as a daring departure from the status quo when really they are a tactic taken from the same behaviourist strategies that have been strangling the life out of classrooms for decades.
Schools and teachers who ignore technology risk becoming irrelevant to their students, and this is unacceptable. However, it is equally wrong to use technology as a 21st century veneer on the “sit-and-get, spew-and-forget” model of learning that has dominated our schools for too long.

Teachers and schools must be mindful of their pedagogical practices, because if they are not, technology will only make things worse, faster.

Here’s how we can reinvent the classroom for the digital age

Here’s how we can reinvent the classroom for the digital age | Trees | Scoop.it
Giving students some control of their learning is the key to engagement.  Whilst that sounds simple, in fact it requires a moonshot, because schools of education train teachers to always maintain control, so one of the scariest things for teachers is to give up any control to students.  They are worried that they will be evaluated on “loss of control” in their classes, and that the test scores will fall, for which they will be blamed and lose their jobs.  They do not want to take a risk.
