Making a different kind of learning…

Speedchange.at.medium

It might be the month of standardized tests here in Virginia, but our kids aren’t just clicking on answers…

There has to be balance. Indoor/Outdoor, Physical/Mental, Formal Learning/Informal Learning…

And when forced testing comes we need to ensure that balance even more…

….by embracing the endless curiosity and boundless energy of kids…

…whether they are building tables or collaborating on inventions across great distances…

… or simply finding their own spaces.

In the end, we need to stop thinking about creating better schools, and we need to start wondering about how children learn.

And we need to do that no matter what external pressures surround us.

Because we, in education, have only one job… and that is to do what is right for our children.
