The Overselling of Ed Tech - Alfie Kohn - 7 views

  •  
    ""[W]e shouldn't confuse personalized learning with personal learning. The first involves adjusting the difficulty level of prefabricated skills-based exercises based on students' test scores, and it requires the purchase of software. The second involves working with each student to create projects of intellectual discovery that reflect his or her unique needs and interests, and it requires the presence of a caring teacher who knows each child well" (Kohn, 2016.03.12, ¶9).

Educational Malpractice - The Child Manufacturing Process | Creative by Nature - 13 views

  •  
    "[I]f the learner-centered model has proven itself to be so effective, and the high-stakes testing approach of the factory model has not, why is this model still dominant in many "leading" nations around the world? Why are so many business and government leaders in nations like the United States, Japan, Britain and Korea obsessed with test scores and international rankings? Are they not aware of the social consequences of this approach?" (¶10, 2015.03.30)

Study: Young Children Explore as Scientists Do - Inside School Research - Education Week - 20 views

  • Alison Gopnik, a psychology professor at the University of California, Berkeley, reports that children from as young as 8 months old through preschool explore through techniques that would seem familiar to any scientist: they make hypotheses and test them against data; predict outcomes using statistics, and can infer the causes of failed actions.
  • All of these things, Gopnik and her colleagues argue, happen years before any formal training in the same scientific techniques. "What we need to do to encourage children to learn is not to put them in the equivalent of school, tell them things, give them reading drills or flash cards. We really need to put them in a safe, rich environment where the natural capacities for exploration, for testing, for science can get free rein," she said in a briefing with reporters.

Bob Bowdon: Why Has Google Been Collecting Kids' Social Security Numbers Under the Guis... - 17 views

  •  
    Bowdon pointed out "how poorly ... traditional news media cover issues pertaining to children" (¶1), and illustrated the problem with what was then a news-breaking case in point, 48 hours after sending his findings to "Google's press office" and getting no response (¶14). Not long after posting on his blog, perhaps less than 12 hours later, Bowdon got a response from Google; and less than a day after that, he received a follow-up clarification from Google, both of which he subsequently reflected on in updates at the foot of this post.
