Introducing this work

Introducing this work | BLACK IS ... "Not Guilty! & Ready!" ... YOU BLACK? | Scoop.it

For the purposes of this Scoop.it site, the history of human interaction with information may be divided into 4 eras. The first (spoken) era ended with the invention of writing around 3000-4000 BC. The second era ended with the invention of the printing press in 1440. The third era ended, and the fourth began, with the invention of the Internet (depending how one defines its operational beginning) somewhere between 1969 and 1982. We now exist early, but decidedly, in the fourth era.

 

All readers may not agree with this interpretation of history, especially with the division and numbering of the eras. That is not the main point here. Rather, it is that humankind is presently existing in an era distinctly different from the one that preceded it -- that in fact, this new era is accompanied with, and characterized by, a new - and quite different - information landscape. This new Internet information landscape will challenge, disrupt, and overpower the print-oriented one that came before it. It will not completely obliterate that which preceded it, but it will render it to a subsidiary, rather than primary, level of influence.

 

Just as the printing press altered humanity's relationship with information, thereby resulting in massive restructuring of political, religious, economic, social, educational, cultural, scientific, and other realms of life; so too will the Internet occasion analogous transformations in the corresponding universe of present and future human activity.

 

This site will concern itself primarily with how K-20 education in the US, and the people who comprise its constituencies, may be affected by this transformative movement from one era to the next. All ideas considered here appear, to me at least, to impact the learning enterprise in some way. Accordingly, this work looks at the present and the future through a lens that is predominantly, but far from entirely, a digital one. -JL

Story Trumps Description (Nonprofit Storytelling #9) | Getting Attention

Story Trumps Description (Nonprofit Storytelling #9) | Getting Attention | BLACK IS ... "Not Guilty! & Ready!" ... YOU BLACK? | Scoop.it

"Show rather than tell to motivate supporters to care, then act.

 

If you take away just one thing from this post, make it this—You want your listener to take action because they want to—not because they’ve been told to. When you craft your stories to ensure listeners to connect your info with what they already know (test it), you’re far more likely to build trust and rapport with them. In turn, this group relationship is most likely to be transformative, motivating their desire to take action, now and in the future, and to spread your stories/messages to friends and family." Read the full article to see a before and after example.

Educational Leadership:Teachers as Leaders:Ten Roles for Teacher Leaders

Educational Leadership:Teachers as Leaders:Ten Roles for Teacher Leaders | BLACK IS ... "Not Guilty! & Ready!" ... YOU BLACK? | Scoop.it

Teacher leaders assume a wide range of roles to support school and student success. Whether these roles are assigned formally or shared informally, they build the entire school's capacity to improve. Because teachers can lead in a variety of ways, many teachers can serve as leaders among their peers.

So what are some of the leadership options available to teachers? The following 10 roles are a sampling of the many ways teachers can contribute to their schools' success.

Considering the fact this article is almost 6 years old and we see little evidence that teacher leadership is increasing, what does that say?

Azania Nduli-AmaZulu UbuntuPsychology.ORG's insight:        

It just didn't inspe him out of raping his wife's Black half-sister, Sally Hemmings; or keeping her and her children in captivity throughout thier lifetimes...after promising to "free" them from chattel slavery, in exchange for her rape at age 14. She was his own slave, no less, and remained so until they were both dead.

 

Makes you want to not be inspired, or enlightened, or educated; especially if you're not going to learn this in school.

 

Africana parents, home school. Black communty; Saturday Schools, night clases, and GED's; online degrees; and, don't forget to READ  the works of our scholars on your own,nonetheless. Take over the Universities, please. This is the only hope our children have, in the 21st Century.

LuvYa,
