2. What are your connections to the “School vs Learning image? What would you add or modify?
I'm going to take that question in a little bit different direction. But I've been pondering the School vs Learning image since I saw it last Friday. Actually, I have been mulling over the whole chapter - engage vs. empower.
They have the learning environment - with creativity, inquiry and engagement - but they also have a compliant environment. A compliant environment where the teacher is teaching and the student is listening.
To me, the image (image 1) above, does a great job demonstrating that continuum. When I look at that image, I see teachers sliding up and down the ladder all day. There is a time for each throughout the day. There is no one way to teach - each moment is different.
Some things I am pondering, as I am typing, are...
-How will students react to bouncing back and forth between learning styles? Too much?
-Will they be able to engage deeply in their topics of exploration due to time constraints?
Would love to hear some of your thoughts...
