Numbers Do Not Tell The Whole Story!

by

We are obsessed with numbers as they relate to learning–data points, standardized tests, and grades.  We miss other aspects of what it means to learn–passion, depth of understanding, creative expression, emotional response, and a life changed forever by an experience.  Even the best rubric would be hard pressed to quantify these things.

This video provides an alternative lens to view how we “do” school.

Food for thought over the holiday break.

Enjoy!
