Heather Eccles shared the following video and thoughts with members of another community. I found it a humorous, accessible presentation with some great suggestions for re-designing assessments.
“What year are you preparing your students for?” Heidi Hayes Jacobs poses this question in her book Curriculum 21 and in her speaking engagements. I love this question as it quickly gets to the heart of the need to teach students 21st Century skills. She goes on to say that we need not adapt and tweak what we are already doing in the classroom but develop NEW forms and strategies to increase engagement.
