Design Learning from the Extremes - "The Myth of Average"

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 2, 2013 5:48 PM

Each student has a jagged learning profile. They have strengths, averages and challenges. If you design learning for the average, you design it for nobody. We have created learning environments where we can not expect learners to do what we want them to do.

 

The average hurts everyone. Designing average destroys talents in two ways:

> The existing educational environment can not challenge learners as it creates an environment where they become bored and sometimes dropout. 

> It means that your weaknesses will make it harder for you to see your talent.  

 

It is all about nurturing individual potential.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:16 AM

We learn more from disruptions and outliers, but we desparately want agreement.

Library Staff's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:00 AM

Average is an interesting concept. Pinning students down to numbers or percentages in terms of what they can achieve does them a disservice and never tells the real story.

Brandon Murphy's comment, July 9, 2012 7:00 PM
I find this tool to be very useful and interesting as well. However, I am not surprised as to how low the United States ranks on most statistics, especially Education. The United States has the potential and the resources to be in the top 3 in terms of education, but due to policy differences within the states an as a country at large we fall short of that. We know what needs to be done, but the right methods/policy are considered too "socialist" therefore they can't be done. It obviously works, just take a look at where Finland ranks in terms of Education.

I agree that this website is very interesting and it will surely not be the last time a visit it. I am also not surprised either on our educational ranking, but at least America is ranked 1st when it comes to incarcerating our own citizens. Makes you wonder how great the negative correlation between education and crime really is?
Ms. Harrington's comment, July 10, 2012 10:05 PM
This is a dense resource, I will have to come back time and time again to continue to compare nations and view all available statistics. I particularly liked the breakdown of American government demographics, such as being 80th in number of women in government.
