How well are we doing in education?

Learning to change, changing to learn

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the Pearson Foundation announced the official launch of a new public service announcement (PSA), Learning to change, changing to learn. This five minute video shares the views of an international panel of key educators and thought leaders including Education.au CEO Greg Black.

Once again you may not be able to view it at school. Let me know how you fare.

This veritable who’s who of educational thinkers (Keith Kruger, Greg Whitby, Greg Black, Julie Evans, Stephen Heppell, Yong Zhao, Barbara Nelson, Cheryl Lemke, Susan Patrick, Chris Dede, Karen Greenwood Henke, Deborah Baker, Daniel Pink, and Ken Kay) are all asking what learning in the 21st century should look like.

I watched this at home yesterday too, very impressive and exactly the sort of thing I'd like to be showing to our admin. I knew I wouldn't be able to see it here at school as it's youtube. However, just the other day I got onto a program that is a youtube downloader so it is possible to get youtube stuff and keep it. That brings up copyright issues though, as I understand it it is OK for schools to show stuff directly from youtube but it is not ok to download to show later. Hmmmm

I watched this at school on my laptop. Reference was made to the different literacy skills - searching for information, validating information, evaluating information. This has huge implications for Universities and their entrance requirements. They will have to change these from the present system of written exam results.
