Curves are For Breaking: The End of a Thirty Year Challenge
Thirty years ago researchers with Benjamin Bloom laid down a challenge—and the path for serving students better— raising student achievement by two quartiles. The average student would move to the 98th percentile. We now have the tools to meet that challenge. When educational strategies match the resources, the whole game changes. From “Mystery Skypes" and media to connected education, student peer groups, resources, professional growth. Teaching and learning greatly and measurably improve when strategies, resources, and digital tools play well together. Finally, it all spells trouble for the old bell curve. Leave a little more inspired from a big picture session with nuts and bolts included!
