Trusting students is as important as grades

These poignant observations from Jean Ruddock and Michael Fielding 2006 are more significant than most educators realise. Consider how many times you have truly engaged in an activity when in the back of your mind you knew that the supervisor didn’t really trust in you: your abilities; your maturity. So much potential is wasted by schools and teachers who undervalue students. The answer is simple – give students more voice!

Long live the collaborative collective intelligence the internet functions by –  before capital gets in the way

Paul Moss – teacher, learner‘s insight:

The development of this extraordinarily powerful technology has in fact depended on a mass of informal, innovatory, intellectual activity – ‘hacking’ – on whose creativity commerce constantly draws even as it criminalizes it. It was precisely out of capital’s inability to contain such activity that there emerged the astounding growth of the Internet. This is surely the quintessential institution of ‘general intellect’. For, despite all the admitted banalities and exclusivities of Internet practice, one at moments glimpses in its global exchanges what seems like the formation of a polycentric, communicatively-connected, collective intelligence. (Dyer-Witheford 1999: 498)
