    Learning Behavior with Captions

    >>In this classroom demonstration, Jane Elliott and her students reveal just how easy it is to alter objective reality and substitute an arbitrary alternative conception of the world. No matter how superficial the differences between people may be, once those differences become indicators of superiority versus inferiority, of acceptance versus rejection, of worthiness versus worthlessness, they become institutionalized. Rules are made, norms are created, and expectations are formed about how people of different status ought to behave. [background talk] Fortunately, however, positive expectations can change a person’s perspective of a situation just as dramatically as negative expectations. [Music] Psychologists call this the Pygmalion effect after the George Bernard Shaw play…

    Competency-based Learning in 60 Seconds

    There’s been a lot of discussion lately about how to better engage students in their learning. One promising strategy is Competency-Based Learning, or “CBL.” But what exactly IS CBL, and how will it change a student’s learning experience? CBL organizes learning around students’ interests, needs, backgrounds, or aspirations.

Students advance only upon mastery of the subject matter, not according to a calendar date. CBL offers transparency for students, teachers, and parents. Both teachers and students have clear objectives, and parents are kept in-the-loop about their student’s progress. Why should we adopt CBL?…
