narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

What truly drives change in Education?

What truly drives change in Education? | iEduc | Scoop.it
Assessment is probably the strongest driver of education and the most significant obstacle to change. While high stakes testing focuses on low order skills, an emphasis on recall of knowledge and learned strategies for responding to predominantly content based questions progress will be stifled. Open a dialogue with teachers about the need to teach dispositions and it will not be long before someone says “That’s all very good, but I need to get my students ready for the test”.

Interesting and insightful article.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 13, 4:59 PM
One thing that is missed is the role of teachers. I agree that we need goals, parental engagement, and developing skills (or as John Dewey called them habits). The article points a finger at teachers as if the only way to teach creatively is to hold teachers externally accountable. The truth is, when we treat teachers that way, we deny them their creative practices to engage in the change.

This time of year especially, we complain about the greed and arrogance of airlines, the confusion and inefficiency of airports, and the sardine seating of coach. But we don’t have to go back very far to get a sense of just how truly painful long-distance travel used to be.
