When it comes to education, we have to stop pretending…
- that short-term memorization equals long-term learning
- that students find meaning in what we’re covering in class
- that low-level facts and procedures are a prerequisite to deeper learning
- that analog learning environments prepare kids for a digital world
- that what we’re doing isn’t boring
I’m going to try to turn this into a challenge. I’m tagging George Couros, Sylvia Martinez, Wes Fryer, Vicki Davis, and Steven Anderson.
Please join us. When it comes to education, what are 5 things that we have to stop pretending? Post on your blog, tag 5 others, and share using the #makeschooldifferent hashtag. Feel free to also put the URL of your post in the comments area so others can find it!
