Well said Josh. I just published a post where I apologize to the students of my first ten years because what I thought I was doing in the classroom was "the right thing".  Taking this concept a step further, this is why we need to give opportunities to students to gain a global perspective. In this age of connectedness, there are no excuses not to provide broader perspective. Thank you for providing this forum for conversation.  Bob
Recently, I was interviewed by a former student who is now studying to be a teacher. I have been interviewed by college students who are preparing to be teachers numerous times before. One of the questions I always get asked ...

Intersting  conversation starter Josh. My contention expressed in a recent post is to prepare students for a lifetime of self-directed, informal learning. To do that means to eliminate some of the conventional preparations of a typical classroom.  So, we are both acknowledging the need for a paradigm shift, just stating it differently.  Here's my post exposing some realities regarding informal learning, I think you may enjoy this perspective;
Are my students being adequately prepared? This seems to be one of those questions and conversations that always come up in school. How are you preparing your students? When they are in elementary school we are trying to ...

Thanks for commenting. I would tend to agree with you in that we want kids to be self directed and be prepared for a lifetime of informal learning. The sad thing I see far too often is such a focus on formal learning that it burns students out from any type of learning and it is typically done in the name of "preparing for the so called next step".
