Learning with 'e's: What is authentic assessment?

Learning with 'e's: What is authentic assessment? | Education and Training | Scoop.it
'In every talk, I'm asked where I would start first in revolutionizing education (K-professional school): Answer, always. Assessment. Until we change how and what we measure from 19th c productivity norms, education will deliver a 19th c product.'

This was a message tweeted by Cathy Davidson recently. It's important because it shows that assessment drives they way we teach. Cathy proposes a causal link between the way we conduct assessment in formalised education and the deficit we see today in the workplace. If we focus on measuring the product and ignore the process of learning, we fail to prepare students for modern work. Children will leave school ill-equipped to face a highly volatile, technological rich and mentally demanding workplace. Let's examine this in more detail:

The science of learning and development: lessons from neuroscience 

The science of learning and development: lessons from neuroscience  | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Traditionally, neuroscience has been kept very separate from the L&D world which has mainly relied on studying behavioural changes. Through years of research, we now understand so much more about the brain than we did before, and this new knowledge is starting to shed light on how we learn best. But, when we look at how insight from neuroscience is being put into practice, it’s easy to find a whole host of ideas, interventions and practices that aren’t grounded in research and science.

8 Needs For Project-Based Learning In The 21st Century :: TeachThought

8 Needs For Project-Based Learning In The 21st Century :: TeachThought | Education and Training | Scoop.it
We tend to think of project-based learning as focused on research, planning problem-solving, authenticity, and inquiry. Further, collaboration, resourcefulness, and networking matter too–dozens of characteristics “fit” into project-based learning. Its popularity comes from, among other characteristics, its general flexibility as a curriculum framework. You can do, teach, assess, and connect almost anything within the context of a well-designed project.

But what if we had to settle on a handful (or two) of itemized characteristics for modern, connected, possibly place-based, and often digital project-based learning? Well, then the following might be useful.

The one crucial skill our education system is missing | #Empathy #EmotionalIntelligence | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Our empathy is something that computers will always struggle to emulate. We need to celebrate what makes us different from even the smartest of the machines. While the future belongs to those who are able to navigate this increasingly digitalised world of ours, the choicest spoils will fall to those who can combine technological fluency with emotional intelligence.

Finally I can see this topic emerge in public discussion about education - something I've been privately preaching about. 

Felipe Rincon's curator insight, March 14, 8:22 PM
It is very interesting the way in which this article emphasizes the importance of empathy and the other characteristics belonging to the human being in our society, also how that characteristics distance us from machines. I think that the implementation of methodologies that take into consideration this aspects in education in general will contribute to the comprehensive citizens education. The appropriate combination of technological fluency with emotional intelligence should be one of the goals in modern education

Big New Growth Mindset Study

Big New Growth Mindset Study | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Using a representative sample of U.S. schools and their students, they found that students doing two twenty-five minute online lessons about a growth mindset resulted in a small but important academic gain (measured by GPA’s), with larger improvements found among students who had a track record of experiencing academic and socio/economic challenges.
They also found greater gains in schools they say “support greater challenge-seeking or academic effort.” That makes sense to me, though their measurement of that climate seems a little odd (if students chose to do more challenging math problems on a test).

The Practice is not the Performance: Why project-based learning fails | Path-Sensitive

The Practice is not the Performance: Why project-based learning fails | Path-Sensitive | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Last night, I encountered an old post by Zach Holman where he pushes the idea that traditional school-based CS is useless; project-based learning is the way to go. I’ve heard this idea repeatedly over the last 10 years, and know at least one person who’s started an education company with that premise.

 

I don’t want to debate the current way universities do things (I found my undergrad quite useful, thank you), but I do want to dispel the idea that everything would be better if only we switched to project-based learning. The opposite is closer to true. Project-based learning is not a superior new idea. Project-based learning is the most inefficient form of learning that still works.
