The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

If you are interested, here is another video that I think has some good things to say. A couple of points I liked were the idea about following a student around for a day. I think that a lot of us live in our own bubbles and looking from a different perspective is important. I also really liked his idea of a real world product once a quarter as a benchmark of achievement. Something useful and meaningful that would be a cumulative component of what students are learning about.

Feel free to add your own thoughts and opinions on this video.

What’s the Goal of Education?

April 25, 2019 by Tom Whitby @tomwhitbyAs adults we generally learn about things that we need to learn about. Of course we also have an opportunity to learn about things we would like to learn about. We do not have anyone assigning us projects, or books or exams for which to prepare. The exception to that would be the job requirements in a job that we have chosen.
