What we WANT students to do v. What we TRAIN students to do

This was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.

Here is a conversation you will probably never hear:

Sea World Trainer 1: "I am so tired of these seals. They always want a fish every time they do anything!"
Sea World Trainer 2: "Tell me about it. It's like they don't understand how important the show is. They only care about getting fish!"

The other day I was talking with…

What If The World Cup Was Decided By Wealth? [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 2010 World Cup has captured the globe’s attention and has given us some incredible stories. The recent match between the U.S. and Ghana was a nail-biter as the two teams were pretty evenly matched. But what

if the games were instead decided by the wealth of the respective nation

Flat World Editorial

My "flat world " editorial was published in the Berkshire Eagle May 17, 2009-- with book recommendations. Probably redundant for many Classroom 2.0 folks but huge in my local scene. Many don't even "get" what I'm talking about. Long roads to travel here.

BTW, that's become my focus: Acting locally while thinking Globally. I'm calling it GLOCAL EDUCATION.

It started with Active Mates and a link where I could buy my friends. It looked fun so I did. This led me to My Mini Life and building houses for my friends to live in.

Suddenly I was part of a whole little Virtual World where people build little houses, and exchange visits and gifts, and get virtual money in points, by voting and… Continue

Global Awareness, Collaboration, and Conversation

I had the privilege last month of traveling across the country to speak to teachers, administrators, and technology trainers. The "light bulb" of awareness for the need to empower teachers and student to collaborate globally is definitely shining brightly! Whether you are a second grade general education teacher or a high school foreign language teacher, our field of education gets it! In order to prepare our students to be competitive, analytical, and successful, we need to arm them with an… Continue
