The learning experience is different in schools that assign laptops, a survey finds


High schoolers assigned a laptop or a Chromebook were more likely to take notes in class, do internet research, create documents to share, collaborate with their peers on projects, check their grades and get reminders about tests or homework due dates. Among high school students assigned these devices, 60 percent said they had emailed their teachers with questions. That’s compared to 42 percent among students without an assigned device.

‘Tides are turning against teaching to the test’


One of the most striking educational trends of the past few decades has been the rise of "teaching to the test". In both the UK and the US, high-stakes accountability systems have led schools to focus instruction ever more narrowly on what the tests cover. Assessment has become the driver of the curriculum.

MzT's Classroom: Testing Ideas-What Do You Think?

...not so much seek...


Prayer of  St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:

where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy. 




O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, 
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.
