Education - A Student's Perspective
In our ECI 832 class we were asked to create a blog based on the following questions: Do schools really need to change? If so, in what ways? What sort of world are we preparing students for? What sort of education or education system will be needed to adequately prepare students for the world ahead? Is it possible to change our educational system, or is it more likely that the system will be replaced by other forms of education? What does citizenship look like in this future reality? So asked my son Xander, who is a Grade 12 student with a semester to go in his high school career, what do you think about these questions?  The results was a special edition of convos with vendi55.
