I'll bite. The point is to create fertile spaces (Marshall, 2014), where students can grow and develop, thereby empowering themselves as learners and enriching their lives. Educators must thus be creators who fashion learning experiences rather than follow standards or curriculum per se. The spaces they create can be physical ( in the classroom, school, etc.), digital (online), or mental (within the mind of the learners). What makes the spaces fertile is the use of project-based learning that includes a range of choices, meaningful feedback, and opportunities to share insights and outcomes of learning.
What is the real point of education? This my friends is where my investigative documentary begins. Who is brave enough to answer? Seeking educators, parents, admin, students, community to answer this question in interviews with me.

It seems I have landed in the right place!  I see like-minded folks.  I have been working on this issue of equity pedagogy and cultural dissonance for some time.  Please check out this slideshare and let me know your thoughts.

by Helaine W. Marshall, TESOL Educator at Long Island University uploaded on Apr 02, 2013

 The Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm (MALP) is a formula for change in the schools I developed to provide struggling learners with equity pedagogy through a culturally responsive teaching model that is based on addressing the three hallmarks/deal breakers of the classroom: promise of future reward, the individual hand raise, and standardized testing. MALP gives teachers a framework for instruction that is mutually adaptive. To learn more - view the slide presentation.  I am excited to get your feedback.  This DLMOOC Equity group is terrific.
