Testing, testing: How will measurement change in the future of education?

We need to embrace a plethora of schooling options as necessary to help different types of learners get to success.

The difference between success and Segways

https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/famous-people-riding-segways/11/ Innovation has a number of  barriers in the journey to success. Adam Grant explores some of the myths around this in his latest book Originals.  He points out that success is less about willingness to risk take, and more about skill in risk mitigation.  And that more is more when it comes to ideas turning into successful outputs. (You need to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince/princess). But when you are de...
