Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 3, 9:07 AM

I've recently shared some news articles about the global refugee crisis, especially as the so many are surging towards Europe.  I've realized though, that many students are unsure what to make of the situation because they don't understand how we got here in the first place.  This article is organized to answer these basic questions: 

  • What's behind this crisis?
  • Why are they going to Europe?
  • How risky is the journey?
  • How are Europe and the international community responding?

See also this country by country analysis of source and destination countries (with a fabulous map) as well as this critique from within the Middle East about the Middle East.

Chelsea Martines's curator insight, September 3, 8:48 PM

There have been many many refugees that are Migrating to Europe recently. 300,000 Africans and middle easterners have gone to Morocco and then to Greece and other eastern Europe  and Mediterranean countries. These people are escaping wars and political turmoil and ripen is now having to deal with taking in all the refugees and help the families and young and old people especially that are in critical condition.

How Poverty Impacts Education

How Poverty Impacts Education | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

"If you are in a community with high levels of poverty, you are likely in a community that lacks the tax base to provide decent public education, even were the students not already disadvantaged in their basic living situations. Those of us who teach do all we can to ameliorate the difficulties with which children arrive in our classrooms. But what happens outside school has a profound effect on what we can do in school. We know these children will score lower on the kinds of tests we are using to beat up on public education, but those of us who teach also know that does not mean they cannot learn. Yet it is often precisely these children, who need the enrichment of music and art and poetry and drama and access to the things taken for granted by kids of middle class settings and up, who lose the most when we cut out those "frills" in order to raise scores on tests that really do not indicate a higher level of learning." | via Alternet.org

Stop burning fossil fuels now: there is no CO2 'technofix', scientists warn | Tim Radford | The Guardian

Stop burning fossil fuels now: there is no CO2 'technofix', scientists warn | Tim Radford | The Guardian | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

German researchers have demonstrated once again that the best way to limit climate change is to stop burning fossil fuels now.

In a “thought experiment” they tried another option: the future dramatic removal of huge volumes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This would, they concluded, return the atmosphere to the greenhouse gas concentrations that existed for most of human history – but it wouldn’t save the oceans.

That is, the oceans would stay warmer, and more acidic, for thousands of years, and the consequences for marine life could be catastrophic.

The research, published in Nature Climate Change today delivers yet another demonstration that there is so far no feasible “technofix” that would allow humans to go on mining and drilling for coal, oil and gas (known as the “business as usual” scenario), and then geoengineer a solution when climate change becomes calamitous.

New research helps explain why girls do better in school

New research helps explain why girls do better in school | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Why do girls get better grades in elementary school than boys -- even when they perform worse on standardized tests?

Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Luciana Viter's insight:

This really is an engagement issue.  As a former preschool, toddler and first grade teacher- I firml believe students "look different" based on gender at these early ages. 

 

So then what?  

 

Again.........I question the content we teach and the timeline we put boys on for learning that content.  I suspect more damage is done by expecting them to be something they aren't.  

 

I can vision a different reality where boys are allowed to be boys with strong men supporting and guiding along the way.  Yes.  We need more men in elementary schools.

ENEM - Nível social do aluno e formação do professor são determinantes

Nesta quarta-feira, o Ministério da Educação e o Instituto Nacional de Estudos e Pesquisas Educacionais (Inep) divulgaram as notas do Exame Nacional do Ensino Médio (Enem) por Escola de 2014 e apresentaram novos indicadores para interpretar melhor os dados obtidos das instituições de ensino.

Entre os indicadores, é importante destacar dois: o nível socioeconômico (Inse) e a formação docente. O Inse é a média do nível socioeconômico dos estudantes, distribuído em sete níveis (7 é o mais alto). O cálculo parte das informações dos próprios estudantes no questionário contextual. Por meio desse indicador, é possível observar como o contexto social dos estudantes tem impacto direto sobre o desempenho escolar. Os dados mostram que quanto mais alto o nível socioeconômico, melhores são as notas em todas as áreas de conhecimento avaliadas.

Quanto à formação docente, o indicador aponta a proporção de professores, de cada escola, que lecionam no ensino médio e têm a formação adequada, nos termos da lei, a partir dos dados do Censo Escolar da Educação Básica. As maiores médias foram apresentadas pelos estudantes cujos professores têm formação acadêmica específica nas disciplinas que lecionam.

A divulgação dos dados do Enem por escola permite ainda a consulta ao desempenho médio de cada unidade de ensino e os percentuais de estudantes em cada um dos níveis de desempenho. Foi calculada, ainda, a média dos 30 melhores estudantes de cada instituição. Com isso, é possível comparar, de forma mais adequada, escolas que têm projetos pedagógicos diferentes em relação à seleção dos estudantes.
