I agree with these three points articulated by George Couros:
- we need to shift from data-driven to student-driven. "I am not saying that everything in school should be “fun” but I do know that if I feel that I am valued as an individual, the 'hard' or 'boring' stuff becomes much more tolerable."
- shift from weakness-focused to strength-based. "This is not about “ignoring weaknesses” but understanding that developing confidence in our learners helps them grow through the process."
- shift from product to process. "The focus is not necessarily the speed but the ability to grow. It is harder to measure, but that doesn’t mean it is less important."
