I was late to join that night’s chat (#saskedchat – Jan 29, 2015) and missed out how it happened, but I scored new website that might be interesting to use in future.
Scramblr – you can post notes on this virtual whiteboard.
As I thought about standard all week, it came to me that I do strive living with standards. What really matter is that I have my standard set for myself and it is not curved in stone. It shifts and changes as I change. What I think it is standard does not mean it is for you and I think that is OK.
However, it becomes problematic to use government’s = majority’s standard for all people, especially students.
So, I decided to look into the definition of standard in Oxford Dictionary. And there it was, the problem of standardization for students.
I don’t know if you can see inside of pink box, but it said:
So by using the standardized education initiated by the government, we are producing ‘normal’ ‘not special or exceptional’ students.
But if we, as teachers, have high standard of what education is like for children…
if our standard was to believe in anti-oppressive education and holistic approach in assessment…
Perhaps it is time for us, educators, to stand up for our standards, not the government initiative.
