End the Tyranny of the Self-Contained Classroom
Conventional and unquestioned assumptions about schools, teachers, and classrooms limit educational reform and prevent educational transformation. Bill Gates, one of the leading visionaries of our time, has committed himself and his foundation to improving teaching. Yet, Gates' proposals for change range from suggestions that would result in marginal improvement to recommendations that would actually reinforce the status quo

"The reality of education is that people learn from people they love," says New York Times columnist David Brooks in a recent National Public Radio interview discussing his new book, The Social Animal.

In Rick Olson’s challenge-based learning environment, you will not hear him reciting long lectures or handing out the usual homework to all the students in his room.

What Makes Good Teachers Good?
This study examined classroom practices of effective versus less effective teachers (based on student achievement gain scores in reading and mathematics). In Phase I of the study, hierarchical linear modeling was used to assess the teacher effectiveness of 307 fifth-grade teachers in terms of student learning gains. In Phase II, 32 teachers (17 top quartile and 15 bottom quartile) participated in an in-depth cross-case analysis of their instructional and classroom management practices. Classroom observation findings (Phase II) were compared with teacher effectiveness data (Phase I) to determine the impact of selected teacher behaviors on the teachers’ overall effectiveness drawn from a single year of value-added data.

How Facebook Use Correlates With Student Outcomes
How students use Facebook is a greater predictor of their offline behavior than the amount of time they spend on the website, says social media researcher Reynol Junco. In this interview, he describes his recent research, which reports that students who spend more time on Facebook are less engaged, indicates no correlation between time spent on Facebook and time spent studying, and indicates the more time students are engaged on Facebook, the more time they participate in on-campus events.

The great schools revolution
FROM Toronto to Wroclaw, London to Rome, pupils and teachers have been returning to the classroom after their summer break. But this September schools themselves are caught up in a global battle of ideas.
