The world doesn’t care what you know -

Posted on: March 9, 2013

… It cares what you can do with what you know

 

“There’s no competitive advantage today in knowing more than the person next to you. The world DOESN’T care what you know. What the world cares about is what you  can do with what you know.”

- Tony Wagner

I have to agree – the constant focus on acquiring knowledge and memorising facts which could all be found on Google will never lead us away from the tyranny of formative assessment and standardised testing. Lets not try to fix what can’t be fixed – lets break it and build it back up into something fit for twenty first century purpose.

A great blog post over here at A Good School. Well worth a browse.
