6 Reasons Standardized Testing Are, At Best, Problematic - TeachThought

6 Reasons Standardized Testing Are, At Best, Problematic - TeachThought | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Editor’s Note: The pros and cons of standardized testing is a tired argument, and isn’t a topic we touch on much here at TeachThought (purposely). But like it or not, testing remains a significant issue in public education worldwide, a reality that might need revisiting periodically as we continue to look for new ideas. So here we are. As always, love to have your thoughts on twitter or facebook."

Whose light can you be? | Connected Principals - Amber Teamann | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"If you’re doing all that, who’s doing your job?”

“People only present because they think it looks good on their resume.”

“She’s obviously all about herself, I mean, look at what she does.”

 

These three statements literally were shared with me this year, along with a couple others. Some to me, some with me…all about me. It’s hard to hear statements like this and NOT feel as if they are attacking you personally, even though I doubt that was the intention. (er…I hope.)

 

Last Monday at #ISTE13 I was able to go to George Couros’s sesson on “Leading Innovative Change”. I’m not sure what I thought this was going to be about, but I knew I wanted to see the Couros show,  His intent was to share how his school division created a powerful vision for innovation and share the steps to guarantee success. What I heard was a defense for all that I believe in and have tried to convey as a teacher, as a technology facilitator, and as an assistant principal. What I heard was the reason I blog, tweet, and share."

Liz Dorland's curator insight, July 5, 2013 1:22 PM

I like it. But can folks new to social media learn from this graphic? Is there a less complex place to start and work up to it?

Melinda Miller's comment, July 29, 2013 8:34 AM
Liz, if you go to the original link, you will see the first edition of this from 2008. It is much less complex because Social Networks were less. It might be good to take a look at itt, even though it is not up-to-date. If I see an infographic that is a bit simpler, I will try to think to post it here.
