Technology is not enough, but technology is your friend. It can help, but ultimately, relationships or important. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 22, 2014 1:04 PM

It is not clear what is meant by help teachers adjust to change. Does this mean teachers are given autonomy to make changes they feel need to be made to help students? I don't see that happening. It would shake up the status quo and those outside the classroom would not want that.

John R. Walkup's curator insight, January 27, 2014 12:40 PM

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 2014 8:29 PM

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.

A few broad tips and thoughts. The definition and context are valuable. We can adapt these ideas to education, educational environments, and activities. 

 

Important excerpt: "everyone loves the idea of automating systems to drive employee behavior, but few then understand what it takes to build out such a solution, maintain and monitor its progress, refine as needed, and then measure the benefits achieved. - See more at: http://www.aiim.org/community/blogs/expert/Dont-Screw-Up-Your-Gamification-Strategy#sthash.8PSiH3GV.dpuf
