A Wicked Problem

Kelsey Krieger

Authentic learning is not happening in many schools. So, real learning, usable real-life learning is not happening. What’s the deal? Huge problem! But what makes it so wicked? How come there is not quick solution? Let’s ditch standardized testing and make all learning authentic!

This is problematic for the engagement and motivation of our students now, and citizens of the future. Teachers are teaching to the test for various reasons, not trained on how to teach authentically, and If we teach to the test all year long, what skills are we teaching students that apply their future?

In this presentation I demonstrate why this is such a wicked problem, what solutions could be posed, and how these have their problems. The presentation includes links to helpful articles if you care to learn more.
