How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.

This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 14, 7:14 AM

Main findings

 

"The key finding of the study is that a common conceptual approach at European level, capable of supporting the development of digital capacity in educational organisations, is both desirable and attainable.

 

The DigCompOrg framework has seven key elements and fifteen sub-elements that are common to all education sectors. There is also scope for the addition of sectorspecific elements and sub-elements. For each of the elements and sub-elements of DigCompOrg, a number of descriptors were developed (74 in total). Diagrammatically, the elements, sub-elements and descriptors of DigCompOrg are presented as the sectors of a circle, with an emphasis on their inter-relatedness and inter-dependence."

Colleges offer microgrants to help low-income students pay bills that can derail them - The Hechinger Report

Colleges offer microgrants to help low-income students pay bills that can derail them - The Hechinger Report | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"The idea, being tried at a growing number of colleges and universities, is simple: For low-income students, many of them minorities or the first in their families to go to college, surprisingly small financial shortfalls are often all that stands between them and their goals, according to Tim Renick, vice president for enrollment management and student success at Georgia State. Microgrants ranging from several hundred dollars to $2,000 can get them to the finish line.

Without such help, said Stacey Moore, associate provost for student success and retention at the University of Akron, “there is no other way for them to continue.”

Looking beyond Fisher v. University of Texas

Looking beyond Fisher v. University of Texas | digital divide information | Scoop.it
As Reuters reports, plaintiff Abigail Fisher had argued that she was rejected in favor of "lesser-qualified" candidates of color in violation of her constitutional right to equal protection under the law. In his opinion, however, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that "it remains an enduring challenge to our nation's education system to reconcile the pursuit of diversity with the constitutional promise of equal treatment and dignity," adding that UT-Austin's attempts to boost racial diversity in race-neutral ways had been unsuccessful. 

Race-based affirmative action programs are not the only admissions policies that have an impact on the racial composition of student bodies. Legacy admissions benefit more white families because, going just a few generations back, many colleges only accepted white students. Preferences for athletes, too, benefit more white students than any other race. And in both cases, these white students are disproportionately from higher income families.

Richard Kahlenberg, a senior fellow at the Century Foundation, cites foundation research that found colleges were able to get similar results as affirmative action by using non-race-based measures, including getting rid of legacy preferences, paying attention to class, and beefing up transfer pipelines. But there’s a catch.

“There is a way to get racial diversity without affirmative action,” Kahlenberg said at a recent education conference. “It just costs more money.”

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 2, 3:37 PM

Controlling borders and territory were the main factors in geopolitics for centuries.  In his book Connectography by Parag Khanna, he argues that connectivity and networks are more important today.  The world's most connected cities act in ways that transcend political boundaries.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 23, 5:22 PM

La definición propuesta por la OECD de competencia global es “la capacidad para analizar problemas global e interculturalmente y desde múltiples perspectivas, para entender cómo las diferencias afectan las percepciones, los juicios y las ideas de uno mismo y de los demás, y para interactuar de manera abierta y eficaz con otras personas de diferentes orígenes en el base de un respeto compartido de la dignidad humana”. Esta es una competencia compleja que está a su vez constituida por una serie de conocimientos, habilidades, actitudes y valores que deben ser adquiridos a lo largo de la vida: conocimiento intercultural, conocimiento de problemas globales, capacidad analítica y de pensamiento crítico, empatía, flexibilidad, apertura a personas de otras culturas, responsabilidad, mentalidad global, valoración de la dignidad humana y de la diversidad cultural. Esta es sin duda, una competencia clave que debería ser promovida y desarrollada desde la edad escolar.
