Why Illiterate Educators?

Why Illiterate Educators? | digital divide information | Scoop.it
When it comes to an understanding of the term “literacy” most people understand it as the ability to read and write in an effort to communicate, understand and learn. That has been the accepted und...

 

A literate educator in the 20th Century is not the same as a literate educator in the 21st Century. Our education system is loaded with many 20th Century holdovers. Most are great people, and good teachers, but they are illiterate in 21st Century terms. We need not cast them aside.

 

They are valuable and revered sources and educators. We need to support them with methods to upgrade their literacies. It must be a priority.

Do skills get obsolete? This is a list of important skills based on frequency of use, rather than actual purpose. This is a comprehensive list, but remembering to carry your phone/tablet charger should be part of it!

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, March 2, 11:10 AM

There have been more changes in the last 10 years than in the first 40 I spent on the planet.  These exponential changes are only scratched in this list.

Punishing Young Offenders Twice | EdWeek.org

Punishing Young Offenders Twice | EdWeek.org | digital divide information | Scoop.it

There is plenty of debate today about which students need more resources and support to be academically and behaviorally successful.

 

We weigh services for urban vs. suburban students, and, less frequently, young people in rural settings. Since charter schools came into existence, there has been great debate about traditional public schools vs. charters. At the same time, the No Child Left Behind Act has led us to compare high-performing and low-performing schools.

 

Despite all the talk, however, our nation's most educationally neglected youths continue to be invisible to all but a few.

 

Policymakers make connections between below-grade-level reading by the end of 3rd grade and difficulties in later life. Many advocates, in turn, champion efforts to assist and give voice to the young people on the so-called school-to-prison pipeline.
