The Hazards of the Great Example

The Hazards of the Great Example | Glasgow North and Bishopbriggs Rotary Club | Scoop.it

One can accept Wagner’s outlook and still identify a flaw that renders this book nothing more than a good idea to try out here and there in scattered high schools and colleges. It is that one cannot select a few unusual successes and build an entire institution upon them. Wagner regards his subjects as extraordinary persons; hence, their blossoming proves nothing about the fate of ordinary students. He believes that “every student starts school with unbounded imagination, curiosity, and creativity,” but without empirical backing, that assertion is sentimentality, not evidence.

It is so true that examples can be informative, but are ineffective when used as guidelines. Context is everything, especially in education.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, May 11, 2013 12:18 AM

One of the best things about working in business transformation is that it is part of my job to learn. My undergraduate degree was in social sciences. I took several courses in child development, perception, motivation, etc.

 

Ted can be a great resource to learn about learning theory, among other great stuff. When I saw this collection, I thought there must be others who enjoy personal, continuous improvement. So, here you go!
