Student Performance Improvement: By Tom McDonald, January, 14, 2017
Student Performance Improvement – Education exists to empower ALL students with effective, efficient, consistent, affordable, relevant, sustained, student success outcomes, that result in individual student, sustained, performance improvement outcomes.
This infographic, even though it is labeled corporate learning, nicely reflects incumbent, traditional educations teaching, that at best, provides initial understanding to some students, (yesterday/today), vs. learning, (today/tomorrow), that advances sustained, individual, performance improvement outcomes
Yesterday/Today; 20th Century, One size fits all, sage on the stage, teaching to the middle, lecture, powerpoint, video, word document, Pdf. file, delivered face to face, or over common technology (traditional eLearning), at best provides, superficial, initial understanding, that will soon be forgotten, for only some of the students (the middle 30%).
This teaching approach WILL NOT, effectively, efficiently, consistently and affordably, empower teachers, to empower students, with 21st century skills, that advance, individual student, sustained, performance improvement outcomes, for all students.
Students do not ‘deep’ learn this way.
Today/Tomorrow: The supporting research is solid, that that for students to effectively, efficiently, consistently and relevantly learn, key information, that empowers each and every student with sustained, relevant, performance improvement outcomes, incumbent, traditional, 20th century, teaching MUST be completely and totally replaced by 21st century, facilitated and reinforced, adaptive learning, supported by, educationally innovative software, implemented at the district level and facilitated within each classroom.
This is how individuals ‘deep’ learn. This empowers all teachers to empower all students with effective, efficient, consistent, deep, adaptive, learning methodology, that results in individual student sustained success.
The questions we must ask ourselves are:
WHY would we habitually, perpetuate an ineffective, inefficient, inconsistent, flawed system of teaching that doesn’t empower our teachers, to empower our students, with the desired 21st century skills?
Why do individual educators want to work harder, trying to jam a square, flawed, 20th century teaching, peg, in a round 21st century learning hole, rather than working smarter?
Someone needs to explain this thinking to me.
