On going lists of sites, videos, books and articles we would like to share with the larger COOP community!
I only recently stumbled upon this remarkable community of catalysts. I’d love to be a part of this amazing group.
Glad to see you here, Mark! Email me or David Loitz to get started. Feel free to read, comment, link, explore, uncover, teach, and learn in the meantime.
All the best,
I recently watched Sir Ken Robinson’s great speech on creativity or lack thereof in education. As I watched the brilliant illustrations being done on the white board as he spoke it really slammed home why SOI-IPP is so effective for students. It’s because it delivers the information through multiple channels. Students use cognitive exercise workbooks that are fun and developmentally layered allowing rapid progress. They alwo sit at computers with headsets and watch and hear what may be happening in a mathematical operation And, finally they are up and active performing sensory-motor integration exercises that improve balance, coordination, self-confidence and the ability to focus and attend to tasks. In a right thinking world of education, Dr. Robert Meeker should be recognized nationally for his lifelong development of this learning system. Yet our “leaders” of school districts seem to have locked down the doors and concluded that we are doing “pretty good”. And, they are correct. The only problem with that is that we are in a competitive global economy with 21st century technological demands which makes “Pretty Good” as Charles Osgood would say, “Pretty Bad”
