Learning needs to be disrupted. The way teachers think of themselves as learners needs to be disrupted, and the way we deliver instruction in classrooms need to be disrupted.
So how can we disrupt? We can start by making three simple changes. We need to change the focus of questions in education, how we gather information about student learning and growth, and we need to redefine what it means to be literate in the 21st Century.
With three simple changes we can hopefully create an atmosphere of binge learning in classrooms everywhere - where students learn to love learning again.
