hat key and make it ours you want us to create a key of our own to shape and create;and look for the door that this key will unlock!the door to our imagination! I also feel that the way you said it if we could learn to learn in a way that we thought was possible then don't you think there would be greater grades improvement i mean if you don't like somthing it won't interest you. like math for instance, if you don't understand it you won't like it. like the math teachers if they understand math then good their a teacher. but if they want you to be as good as them they should try to help YOU understand in a way that you understand.
asically I feel we need to change the education style rather doing theoretical class student need to be trained practically. We need to understand whatever they are learning need to be in their mind forever not like study today and vanish it by tomorrow.…
for during the summer months. The end of summer also represents the beginning of a new school year for our children. Let’s do something important this year by replacing the BS with Ed in our schools.
To accomplish this, our schools need the help and efforts of three of the most important populations of our schools. First of all our teachers have to remember the reason and purpose of why they exist. They have to get away from the notion that success is equated by standardized tests and make sure the school is above some random scale created by people who spent little to no time in a classroom. We have to focus on our students individually who all have different needs and capacities. We have to instill a love of learning and the excitement of knowing that motivates our students to want to learn more. Teaching to a test or using a standardized template that eliminates the teacher’s ability to display the passion that made the teacher want to teach can’t achieve this. The point is our society is heterogeneous and can’t be grouped into being the same.
All administrators have to look at their schools as individual institutions that innovate and allow their teachers to take chances in order to succeed with their students. They have to also understand that what succeeds in Iowa may not succeed in New Hampshire. What flourishes in Portsmouth may die on the vine in Concord.
Standardization of education can’t succeed. This has been proven many times before. One just has to look at the last decade of the, “No Child Left Behind” program to understand this.
Administrators at all levels should never forget why they became teachers. They should take the time in their very busy day to teach one class. This would remind them of what teaching entails and how to best manage their teachers and students. Instead of burrowing through masses of data produced by some paper test they should take this time to remember what it is like to teach a class.
Other than students, parents are the most important part in the puzzle of education. They have to remember how important their children were before they sent them off to school. They are the experts in their child’s school and should never give up that power and responsibility to anyone no matter what the doyens say. The authorities and professionals look at the whole and forget this total is simply a sum of its parts. All parents have to protect their student’s right’s to be individuals and educated to the point at which their child’s dreams become realities.
Children think in terms of minutes instead of lifetimes. It is the obligation of the school to motivate these children into wanting to learn but the child also has to be responsible for their own education. The parents have to communicate with their children every day about what they are doing and learning at school. This is time consuming but always successful. As the child gets older this becomes more difficult because it now becomes more the child’s responsibility but it is imperative the parents still ask.
Students should ask their teachers to teach them more. I understand this sounds odd but if a student understands their is a reason studies are called disciplines they will carry this knowledge the rest of their lives. Get back to the days of asking why over and over again. Never let any professional give you an answer you don’t understand. Students should correct their teachers, make them dig deeper into information so the student will understand, and never believe everything that is taught has to be true. In my three decades teaching I’ve had the privilege of knowing many great teachers and administrators. The one entity they had in common was they yearned for the student to question what is being taught. This attitude is not disrespectful; it is wonderful.
The long lazy days of summer are once again coming to an end. The only way our future can once again become exciting is for the administrators, teachers, parents, and students to understand the future is directly connected to what they do and learn.

Health Care we had http://www.futureofeducation.com/forum/topics/health-care/b>. We tried to handle this task without any success.I understand,that complex tasks is something that you study, just for understanding
so that you could probably use in the future]
What kind of tasks can be called as complex?[I understand, that definitions which you quoted by Wood simply state that there is a system ,which consists of interacting elements, which in its turn,may be changing with time. Complexity may be related to the fact, as in Health Care, that quite a number of experts and computer analysis are required] Does complexity change according to people? [ I do not think so. There is an objective reality. Our perception may change, that is why a team of experts may help ,or a "collaborative intelligence" .http://www.futureofeducation.com/forum/topics/collaborative-intelligence?xg_source=activity . Are individual differences -as cognitive&non-cognitive- affecting the complexity of a given task? I think individual differences affect individual perception. Is complexity a perception or a characteristic? Both at the same time, as in Hegelian dialectic (philosophy).
I'm trying to understand this construct according to the two definitions in literature by Wood and Campbell..…
