What the U.S. can't learn from Finland about ed reform - 1 views

  • The school is the main author of curricula. And the teacher is the sole authority monitoring the progress of students.

    In Finland, there is a strong sense of trust in schools and teachers to carry out these responsibilities. There is no external inspection of schools or standardized testing of all pupils in Finland. For our national analysis of educational performance, we rely on testing only a small sample of students.

  • in Finland, education is viewed primarily as a public effort serving a public purpose
  • Many elements of Finnish successful school system are interwoven in the surrounding welfare state. Simply a transfer of these solutions would add another chapter to already exhausting volume of failed education reforms.

Why I'm Saying Goodbye to Twitter - 4 views

  •  
    Canadian MP Charlie Angus quits Twitter.

    "Last weekend, I sent my last Twitter message: "Dear Twitter - Adios. Free at last. Free at last, Great God almighty I'm free at last."

    It has been documented that Twitter and texting in general causes an addictive response in the human brain .
  •  
    I have the feeling that despite what he says now, Charlie will be back on Twitter. Maybe using an Avatar? Hard for a Twitter addict with plenty to say on the issues of the day to go cold turkey I would think?
  •  
    I agree, and expand on it, avatars are an interesting twist on leading a double life or triple or quadruple... hard to maintain integrity with the multiple personalities. I opted out of twitter because of the research on addictiveness to it, even though it was one of the course venues. Same reason I don't have a cel.! call me at home if I am out I am unreachable and living my life elsewhere.

Learning for Free - 4 views

  •  
    A collection of free education resources With the announcement that Open University course fees are about to increase massively, I've been gradually collecting alternatives using the excellent Evernote on-line tool. Every time I saw a link to a free course or other educational resource, I "evernoted it" (I believe "to evernote" is a verb now).
  •  
    Very interesting. Thank you.

    "I received a phone call on Saturday morning from Canada. Had no idea who it was. I ended up speaking at length with a freelance writer about the field of educational technology. She asked about the type of training that Instructional Designers receive in a masters program and we chatted about graduate schools that have competitive Educational Technology departments."
