  •  
    "In four small schools scattered across San Francisco, a data experiment is under way. That is where AltSchool is testing how technology can help teachers maximize their students' learning. Founded two years ago by Max ­Ventilla, a data expert and former head of personalization at Google, AltSchool runs schools filled with data-gathering technology. Information is captured from the moment each student arrives at school and checks in on an attendance app"

Please Stop Thinking About Tomorrow : Stager-to-Go - 4 views

  • Let’s stop talking about the future and start doing something now! Generations of children have missed-out on rewarding educational experiences while we worry about how corporate meetings will be conducted in 2019.
  • Suggestions for school improvement: smaller classes a curriculum related to real life better teacher education teachers make room in the curriculum for the folk-tales of children’s ancestors parents encouraged to visit the school more intimate contact with people outside of school and cooperating with the entire neighborhood

    "Even if the technological progress gap between 2000 and 2010 was enormous, there is almost zero evidence that it has made an impact on education. Yeah, I know. "Blogging changed your life. Your PLN saved you from social isolation…" Social media just doesn't feel that new to me and I challenge you to argue that it has had more than an infinitesimal impact on classroom practice."

The End of Education Is the Dawn of Learning | Co.Design - 4 views

  • Research shows that the damage done as a result of phase changes -- for example, a student changing schools at 11 -- is pretty damning
  • The old standard size of about 30 students in a box robbed children of so many effective practices
  • For 30 years in education, it seemed as though each year was judged only in direct comparison with the previous year -- the curse of criterion referencing -- as though there were some merit in not progressing
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • schools seem not to notice this and put the same children back in their boxes, only to be amazed at their disengagement.
  • "Well, what would you like learning to be like?"
  • it is a case of deciding when to leave it out, rather than when to include it, surely.
  • The physical learning environments that we are now building, 15 years later, are all those things, too, and it is my clear certainty that to see what learning environments look like by 2025 we only have to look at today's cutting edge online learning projects.
  • I think we have made learning too expensive.

    world are embracing and developing new "ingredients" of learning: superclasses of 90 to 120 students; vertical learning groups; stage not age; schools within schools or "Home Bases;" [all education concepts Stephen talks about more later] project-based work; exhibition-based assessments; collaborative learning teams; mixed-age mentoring; children as teachers; teachers as learners

    They are Generation C-connected, communicating, content-centric, computerized, community-oriented, always clicking. As a rule, they were born after 1990 and lived their adolescent years after 2000. In the developed world, Generation C encompasses everyone in this age group; in the BRIC countries, they are primarily urban and suburban. By 2020, they will make up 40 percent of the population in the U.S., Europe, and the BRIC countries, and 10 percent in the rest of the world-and by then, they will constitute the largest group of consumers worldwide.
