The 2017 Ultimate Diverse Summer Reading List for Kids, Teens & Adults!

The 2017 Ultimate Diverse Summer Reading List for Kids, Teens & Adults! | digital divide information | Scoop.it
By now I’m sure you know the importance of reading with your kids especially when school is out to help avoid the dreaded summer slide.  As a parent, I know how full life can be during the summer months (and all year round), but I’m a firm believer in prioritizing.  If reading is one of your top priorities then you’ll make the time for it – period.  No excuses.  Even if you’re only able to read for just five minutes per day.

Before we get into the list, I wanted to highlight a few ways to make summer reading fun for kids (and you too!) These tips are probably ones you’ve heard many times before, but may help to serve as a reminder or spark some new ideas for you and your family.

New Doc, ‘America’s War on Drugs’ Exposes CIA Sordid Role – Rising Up with Sonali

New Doc, ‘America’s War on Drugs’ Exposes CIA Sordid Role – Rising Up with Sonali | digital divide information | Scoop.it

FEATURING ANTHONY LAPPÉ – The anti-secrecy organization Wikileaks has just published documents revealing that the CIA has for years been hacking into Wi-Fi routers, worrying privacy advocates. But spying on Americans is hardly the worst thing the notorious government agency has done. Indeed infiltrating Wi-Fi routers pales in comparison to the CIA’s sordid history in the drug trade in the US and worldwide over the past 50 years.

A new 8-hour 4-part documentary series slated to air on the History channel starting on June 18th exposes in great detail how the CIA was involved in production and dissemination of dangerous narcotics starting during the Cold War. That history spans continents from South East Asia to Latin America, and even in American cities such as South Central Los Angeles. The film series is simply called America’s War on Drugs and it will be the first time that the CIA’s involvement in the global drug trade is revealed on mainstream cable television.

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success | digital divide information | Scoop.it
This article was written by Nichole Dobo Many people are seeking the “secret sauce” for digital learning. As educators expand the use of education technology, they often face a tricky balance. These tools offer the possibility for innovation – trying something new in a quest to improve teaching and learning. But technology isn’t cheap, and the risk of failure looms. To assure success, many educators try to find and follow a recipe for digital learning. But many crucial ingredients can’t be found in a case study about “best practices,” said Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that advocates …

Like other aspects of teaching, how teachers and students use computers, software, and social media is a broad conversation. We use words like education and technology as if they mean something they do not, school and digital tools respectively.

To educate means to lead etymologically. That means teaching is leading and helping students figure out what is appropriate use of tools. Technology is forming wisdom over time so the craftsperson (teacher) can have a conversation with, about, and through their tools. They grow to understand how tools limit and expand their teaching.

What rights do parents, students and teachers have in an educational system increasingly awash in data and technology? That’s one of the underpinning questions behind a campaign launched in March by Providence, Rhode Island’s student union which called for a “Student Bill of Rights” that included (amongst other demands) the right to data privacy.

FREE Makerspace Supply List – PDF Format

One of the most common questions we get is in regards to buying makerspace materials.  There are a ton of products and supplies out there and it can be overwhelming to pick the right ones especially if you are just starting out.  One of the first steps you should do before spending any money is to talk with the people who will be using your makerspace.  Some schools and libraries have done formal or informal surveys to capture this data.  These surveys can help to determine what projects and areas of interest people are most excited about.  But always remember that one of the best parts of maker education is discovery.  It’s good to have items that people know they like but always make sure to include projects and products they’ve never used before.  Makerspaces are a great way to help students discover new interests and potential career paths.

The list below contains a lot of great products that are makerspace friendly.  They are ranked in no particular order and are all worth checking out.  Take this post with you and download a printable supply list of makerspace materials and products.

New study reveals where low-income students are doing best - The Hechinger Report

New study reveals where low-income students are doing best - The Hechinger Report | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"The new index is designed to provide a standard way of comparing how effectively schools and districts are teaching low-income students, regardless of how many such students they enroll.

 

"Overall, the study confirmed that low-income students are still performing well below national averages.


"But the report identified a small group of cities that are getting more promising results for low-income students, and eight of the top 10 came from the Lone Star State. Almost all the cities were predominantly Latino, and only one – Mesquite – was more than 15 percent African-American. Brownsville, a city of 175,000 along the Mexican border where 94 percent of students receive free or reduced-price lunch, received the highest marks.

"By breaking down the results not only by city, but also by school, Douglass hopes to create a measurement that will be equally useful to policymakers looking for systemic solutions and to parents looking for schools for their kids.


"Though the top-performing cities in the report were generally mid-sized and concentrated in Texas, the majority of schools with the best results for low-income students were clustered in large cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. In fact, eight cities account for half of the schools that reached “high above average” test scores for low-income students. New York City alone has 95 such schools."

PINE RIDGE, S.D.— The Pine Ridge Reservation is the home of the Oglala branch of the Sioux Indians, descendants of the warrior heroes Crazy Horse and Red Cloud. It is as poor as America gets.

It spreads across nearly two million acres of butte-broken plains and listless creeks, and the oyster-gray cliffs and impervious clay floor of the Badlands. It is a mean and despairing place of 16,000 inhabitants ravaged by isolation, disease, political infighting, and good intentions gone bad. Fewer than 3 in 10 of the adults have jobs, and nearly all the jobs are in government agencies.

DeVos Will Roll Back 2 Obama Regulations, a Blow to Consumer Advocates

DeVos Will Roll Back 2 Obama Regulations, a Blow to Consumer Advocates | digital divide information | Scoop.it
he U.S. Department of Education is beginning the process of rolling back two Obama-era regulations aimed at holding for-profit colleges accountable and helping students who may have been misled or defrauded by them: the borrower-defense-to-repayment regulation, which was scheduled to go into effect on July 1, and the gainful-employment regulation, which was already in effect.
The gainful-employment regulation was meant to hold career-preparation programs accountable for the outcomes of their graduates. Specifically, if the estimated loan payments of a program’s graduates exceed a certain percentage of their income over a period of years, then the program would risk losing federal student aid.

The borrower-defense-to-repayment regulation was meant to allow borrowers who feel they have been defrauded by their college or program to have a simpler process for having their student loans forgiven by the federal government.

Technology can empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. The students we equip with digital skills today will work in careers we haven’t even thought of yet, and build new technology that we can’t even begin to imagine. Educators, parents, and technology companies have a responsibility to provide them with the best education and tools possible to make this future a reality. Technology is the key to helping our students succeed, think creatively, and ultimately create a better world.
