The Price of Uniformity

There was a timely conversation yesterday in New York Times's "Room for Debate" about whether it makes sense for standards and funding to vary by state. (You can find it here.)

The NYT's query was: "The Common Core State Standards, adopted by the overwhelming majority of states and supported by the Obama administration, have worried liberals who question their quality and conservatives who fear they erode states' traditional responsibility for education. At the same time, the budget pressure of the impending 'fiscal cliff' could reduce federal support for education, which would add to the state and local responsibility. As these trends collide, Americans can take a step back and ask: Should education standards and funding vary by state?"

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today

How Technology is Changing the Way Children Think and Focus | Psychology Today | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

 

 By Jim Taylor, Ph. D.

 

"There is...a growing body of research that technology can be both beneficial and harmful to different ways in which children think. Moreover, this influence isn’t just affecting children on the surface of their thinking. Rather, because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations. What is clear is that, as with advances throughout history, the technology that is available determines how our brains develops. For example, as the technology writer Nicholas Carr has observed, the emergence of reading encouraged our brains to be focused and imaginative. In contrast, the rise of the Internet is strengthening our ability to scan information rapidly and efficiently.

 

"The effects of technology on children are complicated, with both benefits and costs. Whether technology helps or hurts in the development of your children’s thinking depends on what specific technology is used and how and what frequency it is used. At least early in their lives, the power to dictate your children’s relationship with technology and, as a result, its influence on them, from synaptic activity to conscious thought.

 

"Over the next several weeks, I’m going to focus on the areas in which the latest thinking and research has shown technology to have the greatest influence on how children think: attention, information overload, decision making, and memory/learning. Importantly, all of these areas are ones in which you can have a counteracting influence on how technology affects your children."

N.C. community college to issue grades, certificates for soft skills | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Grades earned by many students at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College will soon factor in “soft skills,” such as whether they show up for class on time or work well in groups. And next year the college will issue workplace readiness certificates alongside conventional credentials to recognize those skills.

Paper: Jóvenes conectados. Las experiencias de los jóvenes con las nuevas tecnologías

Las nuevas tecnologías ya no son un tema novedoso para la comunidad científica. La trascendencia del fenómeno ha generado una importante labor investigadora, centrada, fundamentalmente, en el estudio cuantitativo de su utilización. Sin embargo, y a pesar de los estudios realizados, todavía existen importantes lagunas de conocimiento. En esta nota abordamos lo que consideramos es una de tales lagunas: el análisis cualitativo de las relaciones que los jóvenes establecen con las nuevas tecnologías. Así, se presentan algunos de los principales resultados de una investigación sobre la influencia de las nuevas tecnologías en la vida cotidiana de los jóvenes; un estudio cuyo objetivo era analizar, no únicamente el grado de disponibilidad y uso de determinadas tecnologías (sobre todo ordenadores, Internet, telefonía móvil y videojuegos), sino, fundamentalmente, cómo éstas se incorporan a la vida cotidiana de los jóvenes y cómo percibe este colectivo su relación con ellas. Nos interesan, por tanto, tanto los posibles cambios en la forma de estudiar, de cubrir el tiempo de ocio o de relacionarse con familiares y amigos, como la manera en que los protagonistas explican e interpretan tales cambios.

Estamos asistiendo en nuestros días a una auténtica revolución en todo lo relativo al acceso a la información. La aparición de los nuevos dispositivos móviles (smartphones y tablets), evidentemente, está en la base de ese cambio.

El hecho de estar conectado en cualquier sitio y a cualquier hora, ha dado lugar al desarrollo de miles de aplicaciones para ofrecer cada día más potencialidades y, hacer que términos como sincronización total, portabilidad, nube, geolocalización sean cada día más familiares.
