Is homework a necessary evil?

Is homework a necessary evil? | Middle school ELA - 6 th grade | Scoop.it
“teachers and school administrators need to set clear goals when it comes to homework — and parents and students should be in on the discussion, too. "It should be a broader conversation within the community, asking what's the purpose of homework? Why are we giving it? Who is it serving? Who is it not serving?"”

This is why Finland has the best schools

This is why Finland has the best schools | Middle school ELA - 6 th grade | Scoop.it
“ Finland doesn't waste time or money on low-quality mass standardised testing. Instead, children are assessed every day, through direct observation, check-ins and quizzes by the highest-quality "personalised learning device" ever created - flesh-and-blood teachers. In class, children are allowed to have fun, giggle and daydream from time to time. Finns put into practice the cultural mantras I heard over and over: "Let children be children," "The work of a child is to play," and "Children learn best through play." The emotional climate of the typical classroom is warm, safe, respectful and highly supportive. There are no scripted lessons and no quasi-martial requirements to walk in straight lines or sit up straight. As one Chinese student-teacher studying in Finland marvelled to me, "In Chinese schools, you feel like you're in the military. Here, you feel like you're part of a really nice family." She is trying to figure out how she can stay in Finland permanently. In Finland teachers are the most trusted and admired professionals next to doctors, in part because they are required to have a master's degree in education with specialisation in research and classroom practice. "Our mission as adults is to protect our children from politicians," one Finnish childhood education professor told me. "We also have an ethical and moral responsibility to tell businesspeople to stay out of our building." In fact, any Finnish citizen is free to visit any school whenever they like, but her message was clear: Educators are the ultimate authorities on education, not bureaucrats, and not technology vendors.”

Para que los alumnos no "copien y peguen".
Esta herramienta detecta diversas formas de plagio, muy buena.

 

Nunca fue necesario que los alumnos escribieran a mano para evitar el copy-paste, ahora menos que nunca, con tantas herramientas disponibles, es preferible que el trabajo esté en formato electrónico par buscar, más rápido, de dónde obtuvieron la información.
