The digital classroom, transforming the way we learn

What does it mean to do well in school?

Seth Godin

I enjoy reading Seth’s blog and this one really caught my attention. Possibly a good way to start a conversation with your colleagues.  So I’m just going to copy his latest blog post here.

What does it mean to do well in school?

Is it the same as “doing well on some tests”?

Because that’s what we report–that perhaps 240 times in a college career, you sat down for a test and did well on it.

That’s hardly the same as doing well in school.

Where do we look up insight on your resilience, enthusiasm, cooperation, curiosity, collaboration, honesty, generosity and leadership?

Because it seems like that’s far more important than whether or not you remembered something long enough to repeat it back on a test.
