How Far School Choice Policies Have Come in Two Decades | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Parental choice in education has advanced considerably, and innovation in school choice policy has taken shape in ways that were inconceivable before.

Best Practices: Thoughts on a Flash Mob Mentality - Hybrid Pedagogy

Best Practices: Thoughts on a Flash Mob Mentality - Hybrid Pedagogy | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
I have colleagues who invoke “Best Practices” the way that evangelical Christians quote the Bible: God has spoken. During these conversations, I am tempted to say in a serious voice,...    

 

As a teacher, I prefer to assume the best-case scenario: that my students are brilliant and amazing. There is no such thing as a stupid student: he just has a different base of knowledge than I do. In fact, the different backgrounds and experiences that my students bring to the class add depth to our learning. Every student has something valuable to teach the rest of us. I’ve made that assumption for over thirty years now, and so far, I’ve never been proven wrong.


Via Elizabeth E Charles
Lon Woodbury's insight:

This is a good discussion on the concept of "best practices.'  In therapeutic boarding schools I work with, this "best practices" mentality seem to come from government regulators and credentialed therapists.  And the response there is the same as in the classroom this author talks about:  Can be a helpful start if it isn't turned into a rigid "one size fits all."  -Lon

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

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

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.
