Twitter and LinkedIn have been competing for my attention and if I am honest, LinkedIn is growing on me. This week I picked up a few gems from both platforms.
Over on Twitter I was involved in a short conversation about Lesson Study prompted by Greg Ashman’s trimmed Dylan Wiliam’s quote
“…any school leader that encourages teachers to work on unproven ideas like educational neuroscience, lesson study, grit, or differentiated instruction is, in effect lowering student achievement.”
Given what we know about the impact of classroom formative assessment, any school leader that encourages teachers to work on unproven ideas like educational neuroscience, lesson study, grit, or differentiated instruction is, in effect lowering student achievement. We need to stop looking for the next big thing, and instead do the last big thing properly.
The conversation highlighting the challenge of interpreting education research and how informed contributions from researchers can encourage deeper consideration, for all involved. The conversation is worth a read. It threw up a new line of enquiry too “jugyokenkyu approach.”
Then there was this image and quote on LinkedIn. The “eyes” have it.
… and a chance stumble upon this 2013 video. Relevant now, five years on, and probably will still be in a further ten years time.
…as we all went to school we all have a view on it and never to be help you is influenced by our own school experiences.
