A thought on Educational content associations…

The creation of resource stacks presents an opportunity to apply ones ability to associate content for the purpose of support in a variety of subject areas. This is followed closely by a reflection on the numeration of total links required to generate legitimacy in the specific content area. Time pressures associated to educational disciplines tip quantitative estimates to the lower end of the spectrum as a continuum of like minded articles and resources reinforce pedagogical view points and stacks the deck quite easily in favor of one idea to the next.

As an educator one must work diligently to avoid confirmation bias and continually be open to new ideas and approaches in the classroom. Favored practices may no longer meet students where they are nor provide academic currency in reaching students academic needs. New and varied approaches may need to be implemented as one works to connect with students. Reflection on pedagogical approaches, content delivery and data sets from test scores are all valuable tools to a maturing educator and should not be looked at individually as a whole child picture is required to best understand the specific needs and approaches needed to ensure student success.
