Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I think vigour is a better word than rigor which comes with mortis and makes the term rigor mortis. Also, it is like we are just discovering vigour, relevancy, and relationships are important. Dewey wrote about them long ago.

Educational Leadership - Expecting Excellence: Rigor Redefined | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I was always amazed how focused students were when they worked aesthetically. There was a fusion of quiet and noise that made its own sounds, a buzzing and helping one another.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

A text does not the curriculum make. The curriculum is what the children learn and mesh with their lived history. The ultimate test is Life and all its manifestions according to Alfred North Whitehead.

Good start. Also relevance to the student.

Leslie Minton's curator insight, January 24, 2014 7:52 AM

Rigor across curriculum content, not just a particular subject matter is essential to effective teaching and learning. It is knowing what rigor is in order to determine if it exists.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, January 24, 2014 8:59 PM

This iactually the second article of a series . This is a  word used frequently, but it's definition varies.  I  think rigor need to also differentiate , say, reading levels so each learner is challenged from the level they are currently at. Rigor does not mean, "one size fits all!"
