Do you think converting "grading" in education from cognitive fact retention to passionate investment or diverse intelligences is possible?
We know that teaching and learning has largely been modeled on systems of our ancient ancestry and their values. Cognitive fact retention based on training "job skills" has largely dominated our vision of intelligence. Yet intuitive, creative, emotional, spiritual intelligences --- and skills such as: passionate learning, self-discipline, community/social skills, respect for the life cycle/elders, and global awareness remain largely on the back burner. Since students will do what we ask of them: how might we transform assessment, grading and expectations to meet the transformation of education -- so needed today?
