We have all heard that our students are losing the ability to think for themselves, but what can we do to change that? Written by an educator on the front lines, Social Media in the Classroom: Why Ontario Students Are Failing in the Real World takes a strong stand on issues such as standardized testing, class sizes, and individual education plans (IEPs), to name but a few of the important challenges facing students, parents, and teachers today. In taking a passionate stance on hot-topic educational issues of the day, author Jason Beaudry discusses issues and makes recommendations to improve the current education system. He hopes to inspire strong feelings in all readers, as he teaches them a better understanding of how Ontario's youth are ill-prepared for their future. Beaudry explores how weak reading and writing skills are dangerous to students; how standardized testing does nothing but waste precious time and resources; how investing in more teachers and classroom assistants could change the future; how students can help themselves by becoming independent learners; and how current education fails to train the next generation of skilled workers. He also describes ways for you to be a part of the change. This study is the product of one dedicated teacher's quest to make a real change in Ontario's educational system. He wants nothing more than to improve the ways in which Ontario students are being educated and prepared for life after high school.
