Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Students enjoy learning about indigenous peoples and their cultures. t is a great way to introduce students to living in the world rather than being an observer sitting outside the circle.

Howard Gardner s theory of multiple intelligences changed the world of education. Before Gardner proposed that a student could have an affinity towards more than one intelligence, a student was usually put into one category that would define him for the rest of his life.

Report from Sutton Trust and Durham University says way that pupils learn ‘remains a mysterious subject’

Via Dorian Love, Luciana Viter
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Frequently, we treat research findings as if they are polar opposites i.e. traditional vs. innovative whatever those mean. Would it not be more accurate to say they are not opposites but part of a continuum where we work from and incorporate different features. I know that defeats the party line thinking i.e. digital technology is good because I say it is or traditional pedagogy is good because I say it is.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I agree with Joe's point about fan, but it is the word we use. We go to a game and cheer as a fan. Knowing the root of the word is a good way to begin changing our personal and collective behaviours.

 

The more important point is the one made about gathering numbers. We make our children into statistics. He or she is a B student; a point a game player. That is problematic and points to a neo-liberal agenda that permeates our culture, including youth sports and School..

Why I’m a Principal, Not a Statistic

Why I’m a Principal, Not a Statistic | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

As October, National Principals Month, comes to an end, I cannot help but to reflect upon what led me into the principalship.  As a twenty-one year old African American male, I could have very easily become a statistic. Five months after graduating from IUP in rural Pennsylvania, I was shot and left for dead on a football field in Philadelphia.


Via Patti Kinney, Nancy J. Herr
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Principals do have an influence on teachers. What is sad is they exert that influence poorly as evidenced by the numbers that leave the profession. The challenge is creating empathic relationships between teachers and principals.
