Student Leadership Exchange (SLX)

Prospective students across Illinois work excessively towards the achievement of getting accepted to the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. Though the selection process of applicants is meant to be fair and only admit the most qualified students, it has been found that this process has its flaws. While GPA and SAT scores are factored into these decisions, additional factors such as geographic, gender, and ethnic criteria are involved. Measures such as Affirmative Action are put into place to ensure each student has a fair opportunity to education. However, one result of IMSA’s attempt to comply with its statutory requirement ...

Hybridpod - Episode 3 Assessment And Generosity, Asao Inoue

Asao Inoue

The traditional take on assessment positions the teacher (or the state) as the one with all the answers and asks students to prove that they can figure out what the testers want them to know. Think of AP exams, SATs/ACTs/GREs, and loads of other acronym-derived test names, notably including statewide benchmark testing made widespread in America by No Child Left Behind legislation from 2001. In short, there’s significant inertia behind standardized testing that critical pedagogy needs to address in order to reform traditional education.
In this episode, we’ll return to Kris Shaffer and Asao Inoue to ...


Hybridpop - Episode 2 Compassion In The Classroom, Asao Inoue Feb 2015

Hybridpop - Episode 2 Compassion In The Classroom, Asao Inoue

Asao Inoue

Maha Bali’s featured column on Hybrid Pedagogy prompted the topic of this episode — compassion — but from an unusual angle.

What if we looked at citation as a compassionate authorial act? Could we situate quoting and referencing as an act ...
