Stolen blog from @gcouros – schooling vs learning

Great read:

http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/4974

I am working hard to ‘transform’ my school into a learning community. This has included an emphasis on strategies such as #geniushour and SOLEs (Self Organized Learning Environments – both of which I have dedicated areas for on this blog. And then instead of the ‘traditional reporting student achievement’ using eportfolios to “communicate student learning” – again an area with a dedicated space for blogs & articles. And all of which is “uncomfortable” as it changes a century + of “education traditions”…

George (as always) asks the right Question(s) – essentially is School about completing tasks or learning how to learn?
