No one wants advice, only collaboration.
~ John Steinbeck(1902 – 1968)
Well this blog is kind of morphing into a place for sharing ideas that will hopefully guide our WiredWednesday conversations. It wasn’t the vision and it needs more time, but i just don’t have it right now. I do want to share this though as it is one of the more powerful things i have seen recently:
Some parts i really found provocative:
- schools exist as a place to send kids while grown ups work
- a teacher whose students don’t learn will not get fired; but one that allows their students to run around the city would.
- what will be the mark of a good teacher in 2050
- building intellectual alloys
- basic building blocks of Education in the 21st century
- participatory, personalize, post-national
- two million minutes
- average writing assignment: a paragraph to one page and length
- brain research in 2050
- if email is outdated; where does that put books and writing
- choosing which form is more/most appropriate?
- exactly what Bill and i were promoting with our PBL initiative
- lifelong vs. k-12
- long term problems within a “short-term” game (politics)
