A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age | digital divide information | Scoop.it

The document, drafted by a dozen educators brought together by the MOOC pioneer Sebastian Thrun, proposes a set of “inalienable rights” that the authors say students and their advocates should demand from institutions and companies that offer online courses and technology tools.

College students who graduate with degrees in undergraduate college majors like pharmaceutical science and computer, chemical and industrial engineering tend to go on to earn high incomes over the course of their careers.

I wonder if we need human-centric messages.  Nate Davis suggests we need student-centric messages, but this is a subset of the larger human enterprise that schools represent. Whether it is students, teachers, administrators, support staff, etc. school is about people first.

How Young People Are Changing Civics, by Any Media Necessary | Educator Innovator

How Young People Are Changing Civics, by Any Media Necessary | Educator Innovator | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...Mohammad’s video, along with stories of other young people “coming out” online as undocumented, are highlighted in an upcoming book, “By Any Media Necessary.” Co-authors and media scholars Henry Jenkins, Sangita Shresthova, Liana Gamber-Thompson, Neta Kligler-Vilenchik, and Arely M. Zimmerman explore how young people like Mohammad use media to participate in the political sphere and speak out about issues that matter to them.

"Political participation is changing, and the authors present multiple examples of young people who aren’t adhering to old definitions. In the past, participation meant volunteering for a campaign, collecting signatures, joining a protest movement, or donating to a candidate. But young people today are harnessing digital and social media tools to get their stories out to the world.


“By Any Media Necessary” will be published this summer [2016].

"The book, according to co-author Gamber-Thompson, is a compilation of several years of writing and research that included talking with hundreds of young people across the country. The project was supported by the MacArthur Foundation and was carried out through the MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics. The authors have created free, online, easy-to-implement workshops and curriculums for educators across disciplines who want to understand how young people are reshaping civic activism."

Keynote from David Berliner: Myths (and Lies) That Deceive the Public and Harm American Public Education

Keynote from David Berliner: Myths (and Lies) That Deceive the Public and Harm American Public Education | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Notes from David Berliner’s talk here at Central Michigan University with many ideas from his book 50 Myths and Lies That Threaten America’s Public Schools: The Real Crisis in Education.

-What is the greatest invention of America: public schools
-Value added models built on standardized testing are not endorsed by major professional organizations, yet state legislatures still adopt them
-Most of the elements related to achievement related to out-of-school factors
-Every Student Succeeds Act — we cannot guarantee that every child will succeed; this is a way to shift blame to teachers and administrators
-ESSA is an admission of failure — by returning education back to the states"

The digital divide and lack of reliable Internet access at home can put low-income and rural students at a real disadvantage. So when superintendent Darryl Adams took over one of the poorest school district in the nation, he made it a top priority to help his students get online 24/7.

The (bigger than we realized) role race plays in college debt | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Student debt is an inequality problem. Borrowing to invest in a good college education is a sound investment for many, if not most, young people. Debt is a problem for those who borrow expensively to attend poor-quality institutions. And the debt problem has a strong racial dimension.

'Don't Wait For An Act Of Congress': Union Chief On Politics And Testing

'Don't Wait For An Act Of Congress': Union Chief On Politics And Testing | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Before we can even be seated in the Midtown cafe where we meet, Lily Eskelsen Garcia has begun her barrage of plainspoken, provocative opinions. A Democratic superdelegate, she's just come from a spot on a morning news show, where, she declared, "Hillary is winning no matter how you look at it."

"Garcia started her education career as a lunch lady. Today, as president of the National Education Association, she represents 3 million classroom teachers, plus support staff like school bus drivers, classroom aides and substitutes. The NEA has 200,000 members who work on university campuses as well, for an overall membership that makes it the largest single organization in the shrinking category of organized labor, once a stalwart of political power within the Democratic Party.

"But "shrinking" doesn't describe Garcia. She firmly declares that the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act earlier this year, the major federal education overhaul, opens the way for her members, in partnership with parents and other groups, to reinvent education for the better — this time, with an eye toward equity and educating the whole child. "I think the next big thing is doing the opposite of all the bad things," she says."

The Minecraft Generation

The Minecraft Generation | digital divide information | Scoop.it

description by the NY Times:

 

"The New York Times Magazine today debuted its latest cover story by Clive Thompson featuring an in-depth look at the vast and expanding world ofMinecraft, the computer game that allows players to tinker and program their own worlds out of virtual blocks. “Minecraft is thus an almost perfect game for our current educational moment, in which policy makers are eager to increase kids’ interest in the ‘STEM’ disciplines — science, technology, engineering and match,” Thompson writes.

 

"In a first of its kind, the magazine built its own game within the Minecraft world in collaboration with the popular illustrator Christoph Niemann and the gaming company Hipixel. To play, you’ll need a computer with Minecraft and a child who’s familiar with the game. The game also features instructions to help readers download and play Minecraft."

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
Gamification has been the primary trend in driving engaging materials for young children. Maria Montessori realized long ago that it is crucial to meet young minds where they are, and provide them with the resources to direct their own learning. Digitally delivered content allows kids to engage in play that builds their cognitive functioning, enhances their vocabulary and increases their number fluency.
