Big shifts (1-6 from the Macarthur Foundation) which Pat fleshes out:
1 from "knowing" to "doing" - from the scarcity to the abundance of information - subject areas in the service of doing something rather than end unto itself
2. from teacher-centered to student-centered - always a place for teacher-mediated experience - younger students learn best from people who love them and who are very smartin high school, they learn best from peers
3. from individual effort to collaboration and teaming - teaming during school, not just after school activities - e.g. at Tuck Business School, students are evaluated on the team product, and then peer-evaluated by the other members of the team; capacity to advance the efforts of a team. - from summative to formative assessment - use of the CWRA assessment
4. from consumption of info to construction of knowledge - chalenge 20/20
5. from schools to networks - teachers no longer isolated in their classrooms - thanks Pat for showing ISEnet!!!! (I say "ice net", because "isa-net" is a UK network)
6. from single sourcing to crowd sourcing
7. from high-stakes testing to demonstrations of learning - k-12 digital portfolios - see this ISEnet discussion for more on demonstration of learning
Fantastic and eye-opening...I hope all educators take notice of this shift!
