Rereading Collective Efficacy: How Educators’ Beliefs Impact Student Learning by Jenni Anne Marie Donohoo. I hit the quote below from John Schaar. It sure sounds a lot like the world ahead for our students, which then impacts our roles as educators. We can’t predict the future for our students. We can recognize the pace of change. Evidence is all around us and in front of us. We are not doing our jobs if we do not choose to acknowledge these changes. Of course we can’t possibly distribute all the necessary information to our students. We need to build opportunities for discovery. We need to build opportunities to learn how to learn, communicate widely, collaborate broadly, and create new knowledge.
These are good skills with which to arm our students as they create their futures.
