Many people have put forward data on the fact that reducing class size will create better learning outcomes.
This may be true, but in the words of an internet entrepreneur: it won’t scale.
With lecture capture, video, and interactive content, content delivery can scale. With computer delivered assessments, assessment can scale. This means that teachers are now liberated from the workload related to content delivery and writing and delivering assessments, which used to take up much of their job.
If you scale content delivery and assessment, as in making functional classes for content and assessment BIGGER, you can liberate teachers to focus on other matters – like the process of learning that happens in between.
Show me that new school design.
