Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Instructional Technology Tools | Scoop.it
We need to have higher expectations for ourselves as educators, parents, and policymakers; and we need to have higher expectations for our students -- they will meet the bar wherever it is set.

 

To address this challenge we must revolutionize what we teach, how we teach and how we measure the results. Fundamental and rapid change is necessary -- now, not sometime in the future. Solving our nation's education crisis will take commitment and investment in proven approaches to project-based learning.

 

We have to convert our thinking from maximizing content coverage and "teaching to the test" to using methods that help students understand the applications of what they learn.

 

===> We must help students develop problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills -- skills that will prepare them to compete in the global economy. <===

Senti na pele o que me faltou na educação que recebi. Desejo que as coisas mudem e que os alunos de hoje saiam das escolas realmente preparados para enfrentar o futuro.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 2, 9:14 AM

We have to educate in ways today that prepare students and teachers for the world they live now and tomorrow. We seem to lack the will and the leadership. We have talking head syndrome. The best job an educator could have is to be in the classroom, not be a principal.

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, January 9, 11:27 AM

While short, it is a great motivational piece to read.  The project-based learning is the way of the new Science standards too.

Very useful and interesting. Though this has a 'watermark' it is still a valuable video and would be interesting to share with staff and students.

Os videos da CommonCraft são interessantes. Alguns tem a versão em português e há vídeos de diversas áreas. Vale a pena dar uma olhada.

Excellent resource.

Nqobile Martha's curator insight, May 29, 6:05 AM
PRIVACY AND ICT The whys and wherefores of privacy

Privacy is a sensitive subject to which people attach great importance. The only problem is that they do not know exactly why. Still, if it is so important then it is also necessary to establish why that is the case. It is therefore the task of ethicists to clarify the relevant theoretical arguments and practical implications.

Any topics that touch on privacy, such as the electronic files on patients (efp) and cameras in public spaces therefore soon become topics of heated social and political debate. People appreciate the advantages of new information technology but are at the same time alarmed to realize that so much is known about them. It is often emotions that play a decisive role because the relevant arguments are difficult to formulate not to mention weigh up.
