7 things every kid should master - The Boston Globe

7 things every kid should master - The Boston Globe | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

A noted Williams College psychologist argues standardized tests are useful, if they measure the abilities students really need. 

1. Reading

2. Inquiry

3. Flexible thinking and the use of evidence

4. Conversation

5. Collaborations

6. Engagement

7. Well-being

Trudy Raymakers's insight:

Susan Engel reviewed more than 300 studies of K–12 academic tests. What she discovered is that most tests used to evaluate students, teachers, and school districts predict almost nothing except the likelihood of achieving similar scores on subsequent tests. The 7 to measure qualities seem very useful to 'capture' a child's educational progress.

The School Librarian as Learning Alchemist | American Libraries Magazine

The School Librarian as Learning Alchemist | American Libraries Magazine | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

The landscape of learning is changing. Children and young adults learn not only in school but fluidly across home, school, peer culture, and community. This transformation in learning and the school environment has prompted educators to ask challenging questions about how to de­velop learning spaces to meet these needs within the some­times competing economic, social, and political realities.

At the same time, school librarians continue to serve their communities by linking children, young adults, and teachers with both the information they need and the skills to use it. We’ve identified three trends that we see as most affecting the role of the school librarian in the near future.

Jeremy Cooke's curator insight, February 24, 7:23 AM

Blended education gets my vote - in the same sort of way that variable speed limits do - personalised choice driven by emerging communication media - relevant to a connected future whilst keeping people skills personal.

TRUCE's curator insight, March 2, 3:53 PM

Sound approach in my opinion.

Raj Shekhar Mishra's curator insight, March 17, 2:15 AM

The future of our classrooms is bright if we can carefully blend innovation with sound principles of education, rather than let one replace the other.

One vision of tomorrow’s college: Cheap, tailored to you, and you get a real education, not a degree

One vision of tomorrow’s college: Cheap, tailored to you, and you get a real education, not a degree | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Higher education — increasingly unaffordable and unattainable — is on the verge of a transformation that not only could remedy that, but could change the role college plays in our society. Can you imagine the benefits of colleges having little bricks-and-mortar overhead, of each student being taught in ways scientifically tailored to their individual needs, of educators, students and researchers being able to capi­tal­ize on global intelligence?It’s cheap, you study with people around the world, and you get a real education, not a degree.

The Cook family are not just homeschoolers but unschoolers. They don’t prefer homeschooling simply because they find most schools too test-obsessed or underfunded or otherwise ineffective. They believe that the very philosophical underpinnings of modern education are flawed.
