Lon Woodbury's insight:

Teacher as Learning Designer

Teacher as Learning Designer | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Through highly standardized curricula and pacing guides, teachers are told exactly how to teach, rather than being empowered to differentiate instruction and create engaging learning environments to meet the needs of their students.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

He is on to something.  Another way I would describe it would be to emphasize we need to design schools based on the needs of the students rather than on the needs of schedules, pre-set curriculum or requirements to pass standardized tests. -Lon

Youth Today-'The War on Drugs' Makes Kids Less Safe'

Youth Today-'The War on Drugs' Makes Kids Less Safe' | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Consider the so-called War on Drugs. In the popular imagination it began with then President Nixon, although various interests had been advocating for federal intervention in the use of mind altering substances since the days of alcohol prohibition. This effort, supposedly aimed at making our lives safer, has had terrible consequences, as outlined in blog post by Tony Newman last year in The Huffington Post. Among these: racial injustice; denied education, housing and other benefits; wasted tax dollars; unsafe living conditions (due to prohibition’s connection to crime), weakening constitutional rights as government seeks to circumvent the fourth amendment, violence across the world (including nearly 70,000 deaths in Mexico since 2006), and (ironically) decreased safety for children

Why The Future Of Technology Is All Too Human | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

While the past favored those who could retain and process information efficiently, the future belongs to those who can imagine a better world and work with others to make it happen.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

This is a great insight into technological problems and potentials we need to accommodate as a society.  Just as we have adapted to the potential of the industrial revolution, increased communication methods, travel methods, and increasing life spans.  Schools need to be on the cutting edge of these changes, not just teaching to tools of the past.  -Lon.

internetdoctor's curator insight, March 4, 2014 8:53 AM

While I understand some people wish everything was a computer.  The vast majority of humans need a physical and emotional connection...something "artificial intelligence" cannot give you.

Francisco Restivo's curator insight, March 7, 2014 7:07 AM

I believe that we have to recenter the human machine relationship, and this must be done from school, letting young kids learn that they control the machine, and not the other way round.

Computational thinking and critical thinking are for humans.
