Apr 25th 2018: Professor Stephen D Krashen - What’s new in literacy research? Mostly good news | professional learning | Scoop.it

This presentation is (nearly) all good news: Research confirms that there are inexpensive and pleasant ways of making sure young people reach the highest levels of literacy and increase their overall knowledge. No grim determination is necessary, I will also share some exciting trends in library design, simple and painless ways of increasing bilingualism, and my cautious enthusiasm about e-books.

Examinations and Assessments : Uses and Misuses in 21st Century Education

Examinations and Assessments : Uses and Misuses in 21st Century Education | professional learning | Scoop.it

Education around the world is conducted with the help of exams and assessments. Many of us wonder why in Finland, their way of education and assessing students have not led to drilling and pressure for children? Why in the US, parents, schools and even administrators are rethinking the value and form of standardized tests for young students? How are public standardized assessments being used in HK and other parts of the world? What are their uses and misuses?

Registration still open for Friday's seminar.
