Should Instructional Designers “Teach to the Test”?

Bottom-Line Performance

There is a lot of angst these days in the education field about “teaching to the test.” This reviewer said, “We need to go beyond teaching to the test.” We act as if it is shameful if we “only” teach to a test, but why?

Kadenze

point out we have been catapulted into the moment of “ emergency remote teaching ” where the COVID-19 emergency has meant we all, whether we like it or not, (or the students like it or not), must teach in responsible, socially distanced ways.

Games do teach

Clark Quinn

So it’s hard to want to quibble, but she put out what I think is a somewhat irresponsible post on games with the provocative title “ Why Games Don’t Teach “ So it’s only fair that I raise my objections, though the comments do a great job also of pointing out the problem.
