Each student views school as interesting, challenging and meaningful.
Keeping school interesting, challenging and meaningful are important aspects that encourage students to learn. Coming up with new ways to achieve these goals are imperative. Here is an article about a school that will be speaking live to space station astronauts. This is an example of a unique way to making learning interesting and meaningful. This event can also challenge students by first learning about scientific concepts involving space and then encouraging them to ask complex questions to the astronauts.
Here is the article:
What are some other ways schools could accomplish this goal?
This is where the work environment is headed. I know it's how we run our company. We only want people in positions where they are challenged and find what they do meaningful.
Continuing the challenge keeps them engaged.
While this area talks about how students perceive education, what about the public? Do they have a real view of what goes on in schools? Check out how we are promoting our school to the public by visiting our student showcase.
We need to remember that perceptions are shaped by our students’ life experiences, most of it outside of school, often completely unrelated to the curriculum that we are charged to guide them through. We must be committed to understanding where they are coming from, their beliefs, expectations, including social and cultural norms. We will have to set aside our own judgments and biases so that we can build relationships for successful futures.
If this is going to happen (I’d love to see surveys from students to see what they think, can you post those on the site?) then the schools will need to push the fast forward button and catch up with how children are learning.
ClasswithoutWalls is a very nice concept. I hope people try to visit the site and learn more about it
