If you don’t follow me on Twitter (what??), or missed it this morning, I posted another article on the Transcend Education site. This was a re-boot from my archives that surprised me when I read it. In 2012, Keith Evans and I came up with a list of what were then somewhat tongue-in-cheek, and definitely outside of the mainstream “metrics” by which we might measure innovation in schools. In the last five years, many of these ideas are, if not commonly used as standard measures, are certainly mainstream elements of thinking and practice at many forward-leaning schools.
Take a look at The List in the article, and share any other slightly quirky ways you think we might want to assess how our schools are doing on the arc of change.
