Survey: Principals Prioritize Common Core, But Report Lack of Readiness

Survey: Principals Prioritize Common Core, But Report Lack of Readiness | digital divide information | Scoop.it
A survey of 1,000 principals in 14 states shows that school leaders are heavily focused on the new standards, but don't necessarily feel prepared to manage the huge shift.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, December 17, 2013 1:04 PM

There is more to implementation than priortizing. The entire professional body of educators need to know what the standards say and what those words mean. And...schools must have an standards based assessment plan that not only measures their efforts but that measures the effect of new practice and heighted expectations on student achievement. These new standards are more than words on paper: the implications of the Common Core Standards is truly a shift in the culture of education and that kind of shift needs societal and legistlative support.

How Common Core’s recommended books fail children of color | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Children of color and the poor make up more than half the children in the United States. Yet few of the books recommended in the Common Core's appendix reflect their lives.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

I think that those who chose the books were majority high level professionals.

This is Our Moment ~ Invent To Learn

This is Our Moment ~ Invent To Learn | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"This is the paper accompanying Gary Stager’s plenary address at the 3rd International Constructionism Conference in Vienna, Austria, August 19-23, 2014. (Link to video)

 

"Abstract – In this plenary address, the speaker will share three societal trends that validate and vindicate decades of leadership by the constructionism community. The growing acceptance of learning-by-making represented by the maker movement, a newfound advocacy for children learning computer programming, and even the global education crisis, real or imagined, are evidence of predictions and efforts made by constructionists being realized. This conference offers a brief opportunity for celebration before returning to the “hard fun” required to harness the momentum of these trends and improve the learning ecology.

Futurist Rachel Botsman on "The Personal Internet" and Big Data | digital divide information | Scoop.it

We hear it in today’s lexicon, how consumers refer to “my Facebook page”, “my iTunes account” or “my smartphone”. Quite quickly, these services and products become highly curated and personalised, and have given exciting new vitality to very old industries in books, movies and communications. In essence, they have moved from the “one to many” business models of the past, to “one to one” models.

Oldest and Youngest Populations

Oldest and Youngest Populations | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the world today — and that means that many countries have populations younger than ever before.  Some believe that this 'youth bulge' helps fuel social unrest — particularly when combined with high levels of youth unemployment.  Youth unemployment is a 'global time bomb,' as long as today’s millennials remain 'hampered by weak economies, discrimination, and inequality of opportunity.'  The world’s 15 youngest countries are all in Africa.  Of the continent’s 200 million young people, about 75 million are unemployed.

On the flip side, an aging population presents a different set of problems: Japan and Germany are tied for the world’s oldest countries, with median ages of 46.1. Germany’s declining birth rate might mean that its population will decrease by 19 percent, shrinking to 66 million by 2060. An aging population has a huge economic impact: in Germany, it has meant a labor shortage, leaving jobs unfilled."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 15, 5:17 PM

The median age of a population call be a quite telling statistic--almost a surrogate for a population pyramid.  I post this with a special attention to Sub-Saharan Africa; the youngest 15 countries in the world are all in Africa, one of the major demographic realities confronting African economies and politics.  Here is a map with the median age of U.S. counties.
