More on Teach Like a Pirate: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

More on Teach Like a Pirate: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly | Progressive, Innovative Approaches to Education | Scoop.it
Years ago, I was victim of a violent attack, and I guess since then, I’ve felt a kinship towards other people who’ve suffered from violence. Now  I realise that’s not Burgess’ intention, he’s not out there deliberately glorifying or endorsing piracy. However, I do think he could have chosen a better acronym rather than one that is a potential trigger for victims of violent crime.  I also realise that this is my problem, not Burgess’ problem – but if I have an issue with it, I would say its likely there are several other people who have difficulty with it as well. I almost didn’t write about this, but if I don’t say something, who will?

AltSchools are more than schools. They’re mini-research and development labs, where teachers and engineers are developing the formula for 21st-century education.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 12, 2:06 AM

Fascinating article on how Silicon Valley businesses are creating the news schools of the 21st century. The traditional classroom has been converted into an educational technology lab. Some of the offshoots of this research can be found in many schools today, including the "Google Classroom", remote learning, home schooling, and students equipped with Chromebooks and other educationally programmed digital devices. In this new school of the near future, teachers will become facilitators of learning, rather than sources of learning.  It's a new educational world being created in our own back yard.  Aloha, Russ.
