We are Wrong.

I just gave a presentation at the Google Bangkok Summit on Technology Coaching and the Learning Management System and after talking with professionals in the same field I am convinced we are wrong.  We look at what the teachers are doing in the class and do not focus on student outcomes.  A simple analogy is I do not know what or how a mechanic fixes my car, but I am deeply concerned with the outcome of him/her working on my car.  The same holds true of today’s education.  I am less concerned with how the teacher got the students there, my ultimate concern is that students get where they need to go and move learning forward.

Most of my colleues at the conference share this goal.  I also found a great article that supports this idea.  Check it out.  Wrong Focused: Teacher-Centered Classrooms and Technology – By Riyan Bret
