Suggestion to all candidates for Broward School Board (incumbents and challengers): Personalization of the school experience (teachers seeing the same students for several years, personal learning plans, large projects that students work on with several teachers -- the method used in Finnish schools TINYURL.com/FinnishSchools) with better mental health for depressed or agitated students is a way forward. See the commentaries of Abraham S. Fischler TINYURL.com/fischlerEbook and TINYURL.com/FischlerPosters for posters to stimulate discussion about personalizing the school experience.

Look at Xceedprep... Here's another school [https://www.facebook.com/xceedprep/] that is putting to work some of the slogans that Dr Fischler used to repeat. The relation between schools and prisons is similar to what Dr Fischler described in his 2006 blogpost:
"Instead of asking the student to fit the administrative structure (i.e., the class and arbitrary time periods for learning subjects and achieving competencies), we must provide each student with the time and means to succeed. Rather than punish the student who learns more slowly than the arbitrarily chosen period, we must treat each student as the class.

We must find a way of doing this. Other industries have made similar changes* and it is now time for education to do the same.

*Take FedEx, who can tell you where any package is at any time. Look at banking, which is now available 24 hours a day through ATMs and you can go to almost any ATM to withdraw or deposit funds. Both industries invested in information and delivery systems to meet the needs of their clients rather than asking their clients to accommodate to a fixed structure. "
=================
Dr. Fischler's blog abe.thestudentistheclass.com discusses similar themes.

[Here is a summary from South Florida Business Journal]
Putting online education to work for teenagers: The Xceed Prep campuses, located in Coral Springs and Dadeland, are modeled after high-tech start-up facilities rather than a traditional factory-style school. Each location will have 75 to 100 students who will work both individually and in groups in a supportive and productive environment. Students will benefit from one-on-one instruction from subject-certified academic coaches and will have access to their online courses year-round and 24 hours a day. Xceed Prep has more than 100 courses to choose from including Advanced Placement (AP) and honors courses. http://xceedprep.org/ https://www.instagram.com/p/BREYFZ6ApYZ/?taken-by=xceedprep

Quote: "The teacher is a catalyst for learning but not necessarily the presenter of the information. The information is in books, magazines, libraries, presentations by other students, Students can learn by talking with and emailing experts in the field." Minute 6

"Tests can be taken every day, as students respond to questions from the computer. You don't have 30% of students not graduating in this new system. Time has to differentiate. Students can even move at a faster rate." Minute 8

"The teacher plays a different role. He's a stimulus, he is a person who guides you, he is a mentor instead of a communicator who sends out information. Anytime the teacher is communicating, we can put the information on a disk to retrieve later." (minute 9)

Our Story

Please read the following "Vision" from Dr. Fischler's blog.

======

What is my vision and strategy for educational change?

I believe that we in education must make the investment to do the same for our clients, i.e., each student. What investment is needed?

There are three modes of instruction: 1) self-paced or CAI, 2) project or problem-solving and 3) discussion. Self-paced or CAI requires that each student have access to a computer and modem and access to the curriculum on a server on a 24/7 basis. Projects and problems should be relevant to students so they can relate to the given subject area.

For English and Math, we should implement CAI in the 1st grade (and continue thereafter). The reason English and Math are chosen is that these are the two cultural imperative languages. If you know these two languages and are motivated as a self-learner, you can teach yourself almost anything you want to learn. And, one of the goals of education is to create self-learners.

For all other subjects, the teacher can pose a project or problem that is relevant to the student. Once the problem is defined, the class can be broken down into groups of 4-5 students in order to research the solution to the problem. If complex, each of the groups may study an aspect of the problem. With these subjects, the student uses the computer as a research tool (after having learned to read). Students are taught to use search engines such as Google or Yahoo as well as the intranet made available by teachers gathering information relevant for the students.

Students working in a group learn cooperation, shared responsibility and communication (face-to-face as well as e-mail). Having produced a written solution to the problem utilizing the computer (power point) as a tool, they can then present to the class for discussion. They can also use email or a written report to other students as well as the teacher.

Arbitrary learning within fixed time periods would be eliminated, i.e., no 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. grades. Instead, students would be grouped chronologically with materials appropriate to their learning level and style using the CAI approach for English and Math, and the project/problem/discussion modes for other subjects. The projects given to the students match the level of English and Math competencies and are related to the students (their interests and their lives). For example, in 3rd grade, how would you study the amount of water that a plant needs to grow? I would utilize the students’ Math knowledge (learned through CAI) for science learning. Likewise, rather than studying history through memorization and chronology, it can be studied through problems based on the immediate environment for younger children and more abstract concepts in later grades.

Internships are an excellent way to demonstrate that a student has acquired skills.
