Finland scraps cursive handwriting in favour of typing skills

Finland scraps cursive handwriting in favour of typing skills | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
Cursive handwriting will be scrapped from the Finnish education curriculum and replaced by lessons in keyboard typing, it has been announced.

mixmaxmin's insight:

Why aren't we doing it too? We still have our exams in written format. I've heard of schools dropping their BYOD programs because students are thought to be performing poorly on exams - cause poor handwriting. Exams often require hours of writing. Who does that these days? I can sympathize with the challenges - along the same lines that must have occurred when moving from stone tablets to papyrus. Must have been hell to have to keep writing your papers in stone when you could have just penned them on papyrus. When will we learn!!!!

A débattre !

EdTech@FAIS's curator insight, February 4, 6:38 PM

Is there a brain-memory connection to learning cursive that can't be learned with typing skills? What do you think?

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 5, 5:42 AM

So sensible to teach typing, but I find children who can write cursive can read it.  It will be a pity to loose the ability to read old text, e.g. a letter from Granny!

[PDF] Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader

[PDF] Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

Information technology is so much the fabric of the university that its presence is often not fully recognized. The focus in the IT organization has shifted from a tactical to a strategic perspective. With the demand for IT only growing, understanding how IT leaders can best lead in these efforts is essential.

 

In early 2014, EDUCAUSE and Jisc came together to address a common concern: Understanding the skills required by technology leaders in higher education was an issue often overlooked and one needing immediate attention. The two organizations convened a working group of 10 leading U.S. and U.K. IT leaders to define a set of desired technology leadership characteristics and capabilities, now and in the future. This report identifies 10 key roles played by the IT leaders, describes what each of these roles entails, and outlines the essential skills required to perform them.

Excellence in Every Classroom: Supporting Teachers in Guaranteeing Learning for All - edWeb archive webinar | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
School improvement can’t exist until the learning of educators becomes the constant. Teachers all across America are working hard, but some fail while others excel. To reach the goal of “No Child Left Behind,” it starts with saving every teacher first. Excellence in Every Classroom (EIEC) is a philosophy that leaders employ to save every kid by making teacher learning the preferred tool of school improvement.
