"Like the concept. Education at all levels is becoming more and more computerised, so it is vital that your students don't get left behind and they should know how to use digital tools at an early stage. Use of videos and DVDs instead of…"

Noise-Pedagogical Confusion

This morning I had a somewhat disheartening conversation with a good friend.   We get together every week to talk about education, what we see, our point of view, and give push back on ideas. He commented that he doesn't read his Twitter stream because there is a lot of noise. Educators are repeatedly talking about the same things and the conversation isn't changed. Topics I see repeatedly are reform,  government oversight, 5-100 best ways to do something, the best apps, and more. The lack of…See More

Getting to a better immediate future

In my last post I reflected on a simple yet profound idea:  innovation hates silos.  Why?  Innovation wants to break out of the mold and disrupt, to do something new, and make what was once old relevant again.  There is a great deal to be learned from the past and the present for education's benefit.We can look all we want at current education practices in the U.S. and determine something has to change.  This we…See More

Innovation hates silos

Silos.Educators live in them largely because of the pedagogical walls built individually over the years to teach children narrowly focused content using textbooks.  Even within a school there is little communication between educators leading to closed practices.  Further complicating this is the unwillingness to reframe the…See More

You either get assessment or you don't

I am worried that educators miss the true meaning of assessment like missing the true meaning of Christmas.Giving a "test" isn't about devising a 50 question multiple choice, fill-in the blank, short answer, and extended response on paper using a pencil. It isn't using a bank of test questions to deliver the test online and send results to students via email. Testing isn't about having student memorize facts to regurgitate and then say that they have learned. Testing, really assessment, is…See More

Innovation in Education is Overrated

As a society, we place a premium on innovators and entrepreneurs. They are admired, or for some revered in Business, Politics, and even Education. The reason for that bias is that innovators and entrepreneurs are scarce commodities. Most people are employees and not entrepreneurs. There is nothing wrong with that. Most people follow trends; they don’t start them. There is nothing wrong with that. Few people lead while most people follow. Again, there is nothing wrong with that. On the surface…See More
