The Dawn of Data as Dusk of Degrees

The Dawn of Data as Dusk of Degrees | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Today we are all creating data and do it all the time, with every swipe of a credit card, click of a mouse button or finger tip on a touch screen. With the rise of mobile devices a whole new data set, Geolocation, got into this immense pool of information, yet we, the creators of information are not really profiting from it. Sure, we get a free coffee or burger if we check in to our favorite coffee shop or burger restaurant but that should not be the end of the line.

Using a “Mysterious Moment” lesson starter to develop questioning skills

Using a “Mysterious Moment” lesson starter to develop questioning skills | digital divide information | Scoop.it
The ‘mysterious moment’ approach is a great way to engage students at the beginning of a lesson and to generate some interesting questions. It involves giving students an intriguing, mysterious and deliberately incomplete story based on a study topic by taking away key details, and then challenging teams to ask yes/no questions of the teacher to fill the gaps and deduce what is going on. Points are awarded to the team which first mentions keywords identified in advance by the teacher and which thereby demonstrate that they are edging towards the complete story. Finally, each student is asked to produce their own fuller account of the story, including all of the key words, using a range of sources provided by the teacher, as well as an answer to the question “What do you think historians use this event to illustrate?”.

Largest chocolate maker to invest $1 billion into fighting climate change | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Mars is not simply the red planet tea party conspiracy theorists fear, it’s also the world’s largest chocolate company, producing favorites like M&Ms, Snickers, and of course Mars Bars. For some time now, the candy company has been very public supporters of fighting climate change and were one of the companies that signed the letter urging Trump to not pull out of the Paris climate change agreement back in June. They have just added even more chocolatey goodness to their progressive position.

‘Renter Week’ Brings Protests to Corporate Landlord and HUD Offices

‘Renter Week’ Brings Protests to Corporate Landlord and HUD Offices | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Renters in dozens of U.S. cities are organizing demonstrations this week under the banner of “National Renter Week of Action and Assemblies.” The purpose is to push back against the Trump Administration’s threat to cut billions from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and make the case that renters rights are human rights.

President Trump’s 2018 budget proposes cutting $6 billion from the agency’s $46 billion budget, a move HUD Secretary Ben Carson supports. “We will use whatever resources we have very efficiently,” Carson assured The Hill newspaper in June.

The mass demonstrations taking place in more than forty-five cities this week will denounce this budget-slashing, and promote other policies to increase renters rights.

“Our communities are under constant attack,” says Darnell L. Johnson, an organizer with the group Right to the City in Boston. “From policies of mass deportation and incarceration to gentrification and mass evictions, we are facing displacement in many forms. Renters have had enough.”

During the National Renter Week of Action and Assemblies, which runs from September 16 to 24, demonstrators will protest outside the personal residences of corporate landlords, drop banners from buildings and protest outside of HUD offices.

Education Can't Solve Poverty—So Why Do We Keep Insisting That It Can?

Education Can't Solve Poverty—So Why Do We Keep Insisting That It Can? | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Unions are weak. Wage growth is non-existent. Plutocrats have all the power. And yet the myth that education is all we need to finally "fix" poverty persists. AlterNet education editor Jennifer Berkshire talks with historian Harvey Kantor about how the US gave up on the idea of responding to poverty directly, instead making public schools the answer to poverty. Hint: it all starts in the 1960s with the advent of the Great Society programs. Fast-forward to the present and our belief that education can reduce poverty and narrow the nation’s yawning inequality chasm is stronger than ever. And yet our education arms race, argues Kantor, is actually making income inequality worse.

If this is true in US, then how much more so on a global scale?

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, September 20, 8:33 AM

I talked to a brand new teacher recently who wondered why she'd bothered to go to college since her education program prepared her for very little of what actually happens in her school, a Title 1 school. She has little to no familiarity with technology or even where to go to find resources to figure out what's best to use when. When she does try to research something, she is overwhelmed by the options. She is not alone. A tech coach can help provided the tech coach isn't split between numerous buildings and provided the tech coach has time and opportunity to research other options and knows how to ask teachers questions about what they need and want, especially since most teachers don't know what they don't know. It's a conundrum not easily solved by working with an edtech consultant, though that is a solution. You can find me on Twitter @elainej or check out my web site: http://www.p20partners.com. I can help.
