I am reading an article about Joi Ito and am taken by his four key principles that he shares during a meeting.
failure, you allow failure and bounce back. And compass over map is important -- you need to know where you're going, but the cost of planning often exceeds the cost of actually trying. The maps you have are often wrong. These principles affect and apply to just about any organisation."The principles strike me as being largely antithetical to the more current push for adherence to common standards, rubric-controlled unit planning, and common assessments that are present and privileged in public education. The articulation of Ito's principles leaves me wondering what principles have informed and now govern the emphasis on standardization in public education? What is driving that engine?
Curious what you think.
