Is Education as We Know it On its Way Out?

Is Education as We Know it On its Way Out? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Unless you're an educator, you probably haven't heard predictions by thought leaders that the traditional school system is on its way out. More surprisingly, these predictions are being borne out by experiments where new learning models are being tri...

Perhaps School as we know is on the way out, but education and School are not interchangeable words although they are used that way frequently. Actually, School as we know it should have been on the way out a long time ago. With the current reformers who propose change that does not change the structure, it is not happening soon.

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

ExamTime's curator insight, May 6, 1:42 AM

I think learners producing content rather than simply consuming is an important point to keep in mind. This idea is the basis of why ExamTime, the elearning web-app I work on, was created. With ExamTime, students create their own Mind Maps, Flashcards and other learning aids to improve their understanding of theory and overall learning. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 6, 9:55 AM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.
