What happens when a college recruits black students others consider too risky? - The Hechinger Report

What happens when a college recruits black students others consider too risky? - The Hechinger Report | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...a growing group of colleges and universities think that the calculation for who is “at risk” is fundamentally wrong. They not only accept students often turned away by other four-year universities, but also aggressively recruit them, believing that their academic potential has been vastly underrated.

 

"Rutgers University-Newark in New Jersey has a graduation rate for black students that is far above the national average. But instead of offering out-sized athletic scholarships or perks to potential out-of-state students, the university is doubling down on a bid for students who are often ignored — low-income, urban, public high school graduates with mediocre test scores.
Rutgers offers free tuition for low- and moderate-income Newark residents and local transfer students, regardless of their GPAs and test scores. Its newly minted honors program doesn’t consider SAT scores for admissions. It has put emotional and financial supports in place. Course offerings have been enhanced."

Latin America Is Losing Its Catholic Identity

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 18, 3:36 PM

The Catholic Church was a main governing force in colonial times and was a significant political force in rallying support for independence movements throughout the Americas.  In the early twentieth century over 90% of Latin American were Catholic, but recently polls now show that the Catholic population is under 70%.  The Catholic Church is responding; in addition to a charismatic renewal to mass services appealing to younger audiences, the first non-European pope (Pope Francis) is from Latin America.

‘Normal America’ Is Not A Small Town Of White People

‘Normal America’ Is Not A Small Town Of White People | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"The sense that the normal America is out there somewhere in a hamlet is misplaced: it’s not in a small town at all.  I calculated how demographically similar each U.S. metropolitan area is to the U.S. overall, based on age, educational attainment, and race and ethnicity.1 The index equals 100 if a metro’s demographic mix were identical to that of the U.S. overall."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 29, 5:00 PM

We often do imagine that your typical American is from the Heartland, and that very term, strengthens that connotation.  100 years ago that was true that your average American was one a farm or a small town, as 72% of Americans lived in rural areas.  Today, that is decidedly not the case but we still sometimes think (and act) as if it were (84% today live in urban areas).  The United States is urban, diverse, and bi-coastal in it's primary demographic composition.

Schott is pleased to release our latest series of infographics, this time focusing on the barriers facing Black girls in our public schools. Only through using both a race and gender lens can we see — and fix — the unique systemic problems that Black girls must deal with on a daily basis.

Unfair discipline practices. Disinvestment from curriculum. Lack of supports for girls who face familial responsibilities. High rates of exposure to sexual harassment and violence. Lack of resources for counseling and addressing trauma.

Oculus VR aims to do some good with virtual reality through new social initiative

Oculus VR aims to do some good with virtual reality through new social initiative | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Facebook-owned Oculus VR on Monday launched a new initiative called “VR for Good.” It’s a platform that seeks to build a better reality through the use of VR, and starts with two pilot VR film programs that the company hopes will inspire the next generation of VR content creators. With these programs, Oculus VR is targeting high school students, rising VR filmmakers, and nonprofit organizations.

The first program focuses on students only. Called the 360 Filmmakers Challenge, nine San Francisco Bay Area high schools will be tasked to create 360-degree films ranging in length from three to five minutes that showcase their communities. To create their films, these schools will receive a Samsung Gear VR headset, a Galaxy S6 smartphone, a Ricoh Theta S 360 camera, and exclusive access to editing software. The students will be helped by professional filmmakers and “VR film mentors” during the process.

What a Decade of Education Research Tells Us About Technology in the Hands of Underserved Students (EdSurge News) | digital divide information | Scoop.it

from EdSurge

 

"TEN YEARS OF EDUCATION RESEARCH has shown we are failing to use technology effectively with underserved students, who are mostly subjected to “drill-and-practice or remediation” activities, writes Molly B. Zielezinski, a doctoral candidate at Stanford’s School of Education. But there’s hope—she recently completed a 500-paper lit review with professors Linda-Darling Hammond and Shelley Goldman to identify five actionable tips to provide equitable digital learning opportunities to low-income students."
