More Than a Rant

MORE THAN A RANT: "Most American classrooms are measuring the wrong thing." Sharp words and fresh ideas from Ms. Jennifer Medbery, former high school teacher and founder of Kickboard. She doesn't oppose measurement; she just wants to gauge students' ability to think instead of regurgitate. “What if quizzes measured kids' ability to question, not answer?" Key to this are teachers, particularly as they evolve from “stand and deliver" instruction to molding students who are “ready to tinker, create, and take initiative." Stay tuned to this Future of Collaboration series for more bold ideas from for-profit, for-good business folks.
