Web 2.0 Engagement: Remarks by @TSonenshine @USIP Oct 15.

Web 2.0 Engagement: Remarks by @TSonenshine @USIP Oct 15. | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

 

"By harnessing social media, we can deepen the impact and quality of our public diplomacy everywhere. But we can also reach the people who need it most. I am talking about those who are hampered by geographic challenges or political constraints.

 

There are just too many people out there yearning for interaction. But there is no way we can have direct contact with even a small fraction of them. Virtual technology gives us the capability to significantly scale up our engagement opportunities.

 

Through them, we can make those connections. And we can help more people write their own futures, whether they are learning English, or strengthening the social media capabilities of their NGO, or participating in an educational exchange program, or making key contacts around the world."

Don't Know Much about History (of Education)

Don't Know Much about History (of Education) | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

And to jump from 1892 to 2000 — from the “Committee of Ten” to Khan Academy — ignores the vocal opposition to that so-called factory model and the construction of alternatives by educators themselves. It ignores the entire progressive education movement. It ignores the work of John Dewey and Maria Montessori. Conveniently.

 

To jump from 1892 to 2000 — from the “Committee of Ten” to Khan Academy — ignores the work done by numerous educators and technologists to think about how computers and networks will reshape how we teach and learn. It overlooks the work of Seymour Papert and all his students. It ignores the decades of research on cognitive tutoring and the notion that a computer should be able to respond on an individualized level to each student — something that Khan’s history of education credits to Khan himself.

The #Malala Project

The #Malala Project | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

Last Monday night, I took part in a Twitter Chat for The Global Classroom Project. I wanted to find out how to collaborate and connect in a meaningful way with educators from around the world in order to be more effective in helping my students become better global citizens. I also wanted to find out how to get participants for a project idea I had called World Class 4 Kids.


What ended up happening, was more powerful than I could have expected. I learned more about a little girl in Pakistan, named Malala Yousufzai. This is the beginning of our Twitter chat:
