Uncommon Learning

A Principal's Reflections

It is not that our students are actually learning differently per se, but the environment in which they are learning is dramatically different. They have embraced this digital world as it provides consistent relevance and meaning through an array of interactive experiences. If students cannot learn the way we now teach or in the conditions that are prevalent, maybe we need to teach the way they learn and create a school environment that more closely aligns with their world.

Can Micro-credentials Create More Meaningful Professional Development For Teachers?

MindShift

Instead, they must take their learning back into their classrooms and try it out, submitting evidence, receiving feedback from peers and refining their approach.
