Four Thought Friday

Four Thought Friday

Happy Friday! Here is your weekly dose of "Four Thought Friday," a list of the top four things I enjoyed or pondered, this week. As always, you can click the Past Issues button above, to check out our previous issues. Enjoy!
1. An article I'm reading —

Schooling Was for the Industrial Era, Unschooling Is for the Future by Kerry McDonald
2. Another article I'm reading —
I love this concept of "Playlists," or hyperdocs, designed to engage students in structured learning tasks while promoting autonomy, choice, and an academic mindset. It provides flexibility for the teacher to work directly with individual students, without breaking up the learning flow of all students -- a true win for everyone!
Playlists: A Path to Personalizing Learning by Catlin Tucker
3. A resource I'm exploring —
According to a report from the Economist Intelligence Unit, less than half (44%) of 18- to 25-year-olds believe their education system is providing them with the digital literacy, problem-solving, and creativity skills they need to enter the country’s workforce. Google's new, free curriculum, dubbed Applied Digital Skills, encourages middle school, high school, and adult learners to develop and apply digital skills to relevant, real-life problems. Collaborative group projects allow learners to research, analyze data, and express ideas together. [1]
4. Something which has wasted far too much of my time —
This. Subsequently, this:
