Donna Fry (@fryed)'s insight:

 Parents don’t understand teaching and learning.

Parents speak in the language of terms and compliance because that’s how we speak to them.

They understand grades, behavior, some of the fundamentals of literacy, and other abstractions like effort, inspiration, success, and failure.

But what if they understood how people learn even half as well as most teachers? What if they understood the pros and cons of certain assessment forms (this isn’t rocket science), the inherent limitations of letter grades (there’s no way they don’t already have an instinct for this), or how to coach critical thinking and observation on a daily basis?

Parents are the sleeping giants in education.

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
