Video Monday

These are some interesting videos I ran across over the weekend. Kudos to Scott McLeod for sharing them. The first one is from one of my favorite education leaders. Granted he is from Michigan State so please don't discount his thoughts after what happened in overtime this past weekend.

Yong Zhao: No Child Left Behind and Global Competitiveness from TFT on Vimeo.

This next one picks up the same thread about the dangers of the standards movement in terms of killing the motivation to actually learn. Kudos to the Canadians for putting it together.

I wonder if the focus on believing a test indicates everything about a student might lead to schools like this.
