Screening: Beyond Measure

Screening: Beyond Measure

Saint Louis Public Library (map)

Every day we hear stories about America’s troubled education system. And we’re told that in order to fix what’s broken, we need to narrow our curricula, standardize our classrooms, and find new ways to measure students and teachers. But what if these “fixes” are making our schools worse.
In Beyond Measure, we set out to challenge the assumptions of our current education story.

Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, this film asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the higher aim of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this paradigm-shift was driven from the ground up? By students, parents, and educators? By all of us?

In Beyond Measure, we find a revolution brewing in public schools across the country. From rural Kentucky to New York City, schools that are breaking away from an outmoded, test-driven education are shaping a new vision for our classrooms. These are schools that see critical thinking, communication, exploration, experimentation, collaboration, and creativity as the key to good education. And they are dramatically improving outcomes for children of all backgrounds. They are schools where practically every student graduates and goes on to finish college.

Beyond Measure offers a positive picture of what’s possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change. Are you?

EdCampSTL 2019

EdCampSTL 2019

Mehlville High School (map)

Our Goals for #EdcampSTL:

1. Bring learners together in a choice-based, relevant, and enjoyable day of conversation, collaboration, and learning. This is an ‘UNconference’ that is led by the learner, not the system.

2. Learn out loud on Twitter, blogs, Flickr, Instagram with hashtags #EdcampSTL. Our learning can benefit others. Why keep it to ourselves? People around the world will follow the #EdcampSTL hashtag. (If you don’t know how to tweet yet, there will be sessions so you can learn it and join the fun and sharing!)

3. Untrapping the wisdom.  Great things are happening in classrooms all over the region.  We often tell our friends or colleagues or maybe even post it on facebook, but we never share it to strangers.  EdcampSTL will be home to the best and the brightest across the region, so share, SHARE BIG.  Share that little thing that makes your life easier and the BIG project that makes your room unique.  You know that website “Teachers pay Teachers?” Well, we’re going to be the opposite of that, we share FOR FREE because it’s not about us, it’s about our students and our community.

UNCONFERENCE

For those of you that haven't attended an edcampSTL event, please note that it is run in an unconference format. This means that the participants decides the topics of conversation and the direction of the learning. It is truly a conference by you and for you. It includes free breakfast and lunch as well as a ton of great prizes to finish the day.
