The School Day of the Future is DESIGNED
February 22, 2011 | 11:11 AM | By Tina Barseghian, from KQED & NPR Mind/Shift: How we will learn.
All of these innovative models are showing us that incredible results, and experiences are possible when we design the school day with the needs of the student in mind. The historic “one-size-fits-all” model of set periods of time with groups of somewhere between 20-30 kids lined up in rows and one teacher in the front of the room orchestrating the conversation…. well, Sage on Stage, Chalk and Talk, and Spray and Pray might just have met their match.
The school day of the future will be unpredictable, inconsistent, and designed to be wildly relevant for the learner, their engagement, and their development. – By Sandy Speicher
