EDUC W200 Week 2 Teachers experience… • A need to accommodate the changing learning styles of the digital natives • A need to create innovative learning experiences— often discussed in association with technology. • A need to assure that students are learning to the expectation (in other words, the academic standards) o Indiana Academic Standards vs. Common Core State Standards o Push from the top: NCLB / RTTT

  8. 8. EDUC W200 Week 2 KEY ELEMENTS OF NCLB States must develop their own accountability systems (largely standardized tests). Schools must make “adequate yearly progress” in standardized test scores. •Those that don’t are put on a published list of “failing schools,” and parents can transfer their students to another school. All teachers must be “highly qualified” (by 2005). Schools must use “scientifically based” practices and methods. Students must be “technology-literate” by eighth grade.
  9. 9. EDUC W200 Week 2 NCLB & ACADEMIC STANDARDS • Main reasons for academic standards … • To make sure students are learning what they’re supposed to learn at a particular level • To clearly measure student outcomes o “The standards-based education reform, setting high standards and establishing measurable goals will improve students’ outcomes” o “Whatever each state decides students will learn, each school must prove that students are learning it.”
  10. 10. EDUC W200 Week 2 OBAMA AND NCLB • The greater push is to hold schools accountable for student test scores o Assessing student performance • Indiana granted NCLB Waiver (May 2012) • What does this mean for Indiana?
