We had a great response to our second call for 500-word contributions to the Purpos/ed campaign. The aim was to get people to reflect on what they believe to be the purpose(s) of education within a constrained word limit.
We’ve had a number of campaigns (and a conference) since we started in February 2011, including a very successful one last year where people contributed 500 words on what they believe to be the purpose(s) of education.
(PS You’re very welcome to send us an ‘unofficial’ contribution – email us at email@example.com with the link!)
After a brief lull (as I’ve mentioned before it’s all about the ‘cadence of engagement’) we’re back with a new campaign for Purpos/ed!
For those who haven’t been paying attention:
We’re a non-partisan, location-independent organization aiming to kickstart a debate around the question: What’s the purpose of education? With a 3-year plan, a series of campaigns, and a weekly newsletter we aim to empower people to get involved and make a difference in their neighbourhood, area and country.
This time we’re discussing and debating the question:
What’s the purpose of assessment?
