Are You Ready to Join the Slow Education Movement?Posted by Shelley Wright on Aug 26, 2014 in Less Teacher, More Student, Making The Shift, The How of 21st Century Teaching, The Moral Imperative, Voices | 0 commentsSlow. I love this word, and yet it tends to have many negative connotations in education. Which is too bad because it’s the very philosophy we need to save our education system, and give kids the time and space necessary to grow into the thoughtful, articulate citizens we desperately need them to become.The 20th Century was known for many things. Mass destruction, of course. Statistics show we managed to destroy each other and plunder the planet at a rate unequalled by any other century in history. The 20th Century was also a time of great exploration, innovation and technological advance. The exploration of space. The eradication of disabling and fatal diseases. Increased global awareness. A measure of equality for at least some groups who have been historically disenfranchised.
