Education: It's time to do better

>> quarta-feira, dezembro 15, 2010

Eis a razão porque uma escola que era boa há 30 anos pode ser hoje um atraso de vida, se não perceber que o mundo mudou entretanto.
(por muito que as elites continuem cegamente a mandar para lá a sua descendência)

"Ask them what they can do with it [information], ask them to go to places, see things for themselves, play"

"Then main point is that if we continue to look at education as if it's about coming to school to get the information and not about experiential learning, empowering students voice and embracing failure, we're missing the mark. And everything that everybody is talking about today isn't possible if we keep having an educational system that does not value these qualities, because we won't get there with a standardized test and we won't get there with a culture of one right answer. We know how to do this better. And it's time to do better."

Aproveito para deixar aqui uma sincera homenagem ao excelente trabalho desenvolvido pelas educadoras do Pré escolar da Tomás de Borba, que felizmente já seguem este caminho.
