Holly Jobe: The Changing Expectations of Learning

I've been inspired by the visit of fellow educators in this page. One of them is Scott Guthrie who's working in Oregon, at the Beaverton School District, he's involved in the Technological Classes at Westview High School. Thanks for you're note Scott. The other visitor is a California AP U.S. History teacher, Mark Cruthers. He runs a website called Homeschool-teachers.com and is certified to teach online!

All these hard workers professionals deserse some lines in this page because teachers and parents are changing their expectations about learning. The program director of the Classrooms for the Future project in Pennsylvania has been interviewed by D. Warlick and among his podcasts, he presents Holly Jobe as one of the Pennsylvania educator leader, where he asks Holly to reflect on the last twenty-something years of the movement to bring technology into our classrooms. And after the podcast has been listened, W. Fryer has elaborated:

Our focus as educators and learners should be helping students become LITERATE and actual practitioners, not simply pretenders, of the content area expertise we require them to study. Learning tasks should help students authentically demonstrate their own knowledge and skills as mathematicians, scientists, writers, readers, oral communicators, and historians. Rather than completing study guides and seatwork which bores everyone, students should be challenged to work in teams (as part of project-based learning tasks) and create authentic, creative knowledge products which reflect their understandings of content and ideas in novel ways.

It says all!
