More to Think About…
Progressive Education and the Conceptual, Networked Age Approach to Learning
Last week I wrote about the difference between a Traditional Factory Age Approach to learning vs. a Conceptual, Networked Age Approach
to learning. The difference is profound. Research supports, and highly qualified professionals in the education field agree, that we must move past a one size fits all, test driven learning approach to one that guides and supports students to learn to learn, to be highly creative and innovative, and to work together collaboratively in teams to solve problems. We must help our students to understand and imbrace a growth mindset for lifelong learning.
Rather than write a full blog this week, I would like to share with you the links to three powerful YouTube videos – one by Sal Khan and the other two by Sir Ken Robinson. Both are very well known for their thought leadership in education. Enjoy!
Sal Khan – Let’s Teach to Mastery, Not to Test Scores
Sir Ken Robinson – Do Schools Kill Creativity?
Sir Ken Robinson – Changing Education Paradigms
