According to "weblogg-ed.com"
Bring some imaginary sets (or onesies) of parents into a room and ask them these questions. What kind of responses do you think you’d get?
Do you want your kids to be problem solvers?
Do you want them to be able to work constructively with others to create useful stuff?
Do you want the things they create to contribute to the community?
Do you want your kids to be able to distinguish between relevant, truthful information and the alternative?
Do you want your kids to be creative, imaginative and curious?
Do you want your kids to work on their own, to self-direct their own learning?
Do you want your children to use technology to learn and create?
Do you want your kids to be passionate about learning?
Do you want your kids to be engaged in school?
Do you want your students to learn from/with different cultures?
Do you want them to be independent? (Add your own here.)
"If we really believe in the value of all that problem solving, collaboration, self-direction, passion stuff, and we take an honest look at what the current system values by what it assesses, it’s hard not to see the gap."
