Ann S. Michaelsen's curator insight, August 29, 9:22 AM

Education must be personalized – responsive to the real needs of each student. This could mean the abolition of grade levels based on age. When education is personalized, it emphasizes student interests, teaches skills using worthwhile content – and most important – shows kids how to tap into their own innate motivation to learn. It puts the onus of learning on those who have the most at stake in school: students.

Personalized learning requires teachers to become co-learners and release their iron grip on the learning process. It requires districts to trust principals, principals to trust teachers, and teachers to trust students. It requires a great deal of conversation about what real learning is and why it matters.

Kevin Atkins's curator insight, August 29, 9:26 AM

Some very important facts and interesting ideas! "Give the student the time he needs!" An inspiring read!

Charles van der Haegen's curator insight, August 30, 4:54 AM

Education is perhaps one of the most fundamental changes that has to be undertaken...

Let's let it emerge autopoïetically...,This does not mean we should not lead on it...

 

"One must constantly rest on an acting “avant garde” (vanguard). There's never preliminary consensus with respect to innovation. One doesn't progress on the foundation of average opinion, which is not democratic; but “mediocratic”. One progresses on the foundation of creative passion. All and every transformational innovation is first and foremost deviance. It diffuses when becoming a trend before becoming a historic power."

Edgar Morin : Freely translated from French

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 6:39 PM

The reorganizing and reconstructing (a great John Dewey word taking us beyond reorganizing) of School is long overdue. I think we will have to be aware and present in our teaching so as to utilize the most effective means for the learning at hand and the students involved in that learning.

Building Expertise in Teaching: A Few Ideas

Building Expertise in Teaching: A Few Ideas | Leading Learning | Scoop.it

 gJal Mehta writes: One central challenge in American education is building more expertise in teaching. In recent years we have tended to think about this in terms of rating individual teachers, but what if we were to step back and see it more as a systemic issue, in terms of how well the field is organized to promote the development of expertise in teaching? Presumably the development of expertise is a two part equation: the development of knowledge that would guide work in a field, and then helping practitioners gain that knowledge, either during their training or on the job. We are particularly bad at both parts of that equation.
