The Power of Mobile Learning

The Power of Mobile Learning | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Another way to think about it is where learners are in their development. We use formal learning when they’re novices, and don’t know what they need or why they need it.  Once they’re on the job, when they’re practitioners, they know what they need and just want access to it.  The role of performance support …

New White House Grant Program Aims To Improve Education For Native American Students

New White House Grant Program Aims To Improve Education For Native American Students | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

 Native American youth throughout the country face a set of unique and daunting challenges. This population faces high rates of poverty and suicide as well as low graduation rates.

"Native youth and Native education are in a state of emergency. Low rates of educational attainment perpetuate a cycle of limited opportunity for higher education or economic success for American Indians and Alaska Natives," says a damning report on the state of Native American youth the White House released in December. "This crisis has grave consequences for Native nations, who need an educated citizenry to lead their governments, develop reservation economies, contribute to the social well-being of Native communities, and sustain Indian cultures."

Applications for the grant money -- which ask tribal communities to propose a project that would improve the quality of educational opportunities available for native youth -- are due this summer.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 15, 12:02 PM

If a language dies, an entire culture dies. Every year more and more languages and threatened and it gets worse as more people try to keep up with the demand of globalization. "Mexico isn't the only country losing its voices: If nothing is done, about half of the 6,000-plus languages spoken today will disappear by the end of this century."  Endangered Languages are going to be all the more common.
