Outsourcing assessment to Cisco, Microsoft and Intel?

  • Interesting development in testing that may separate assessment from educational systems and institutions.

  • "Based on extensive research, Cisco, Intel and Microsoft concluded that most education systems have not kept pace with the dramatic changes in the economy and the skill sets that are required for students to succeed. These skills include the ability to think critically and creatively; to work cooperatively; and to adapt to the evolving use of technology in business and society."

From Knowledgable to Knowledge-able: Learning in New Media Environments | Academic Commons

  • An interesting article. The notion of subjectivities rather than subjects may be worth considering relative to the topics or themes in the ELP. I think we are in many ways closer to subjectivities than subjects already, but recognizing this more explicitly may be useful as part of our reforms. That is, perhaps we can rethink our content-based approach as a questions-based approach. Mutual exploration of questions may be more engaging for students than just absorbing content.
