How to transform schools into Learning Organisations? | #ModernLEARNing #ModernEDU

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations? | #ModernLEARNing #ModernEDU | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

In response, a growing body of scholars, educators and policy makers around the world is making the case that schools should be re-conceptualised as “learning organisations” that can react more quickly to changing external environments, embrace innovations in internal organisation, and ultimately improve student outcomes.

 

Despite strong support for and the intuitive appeal of the school as a learning organisation, relatively little progress has been made in advancing the concept, either in research or practice. This lack of progress partly stems from a lack of clarity or common understanding of the school as learning organisation.

‘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.

Dedrick Asante-Muhammad on the Widening Racial Wealth Gap

Dedrick Asante-Muhammad on the Widening Racial Wealth Gap | digital divide information | Scoop.it
This week on CounterSpin: Virtually every newscast will contain some item about “the economy.” It’s always been a very inexact way to talk: The economy encompasses many factors and many actors. But as a new report underscores, even if we’re just talking about people’s economic well-being, speaking in broad terms doesn’t just miss a lot, it’s anti-explanatory; it obscures more than it reveals. The report is called The Road to Zero Wealth: How the Racial Wealth Divide Is Hollowing Out America’s Middle Class. It explores why that wealth gap exists, and how we might intervene to turn it around. Because if we don’t, we are driving the country toward what authors describe in no uncertain times as a “racial and economic apartheid state.”

hrough the CBCF’s 20-month fellowship programs, participants work with congressional members and committees, attend leadership development seminars, complete community service projects and produce policy papers. During their first placement, fellows gain invaluable experience as they assist in the development of legislative and public policy initiatives within Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) member offices. Fellows work 40 hours per week on a range of staff assignments: legislative analysis, responding to constituent mail, drafting talking points and speeches for members, and coordinating logistics and public testimony for congressional hearings. During the second half of their program, fellows transition to a congressional committee, which complements their experience in a member’s office and provides them with a full view of the legislative process. The CBCF offers three fellowship programs: “I believe that I could be a valuable asset [to my community] as a direct result of my … background as a CBCF Fellow.” Thomas Cuffie Science and Technology Fellow, 2012-2014. Congressional Fellowship Congressional Fellowship on Women in Health Sciences Leadership Donald M. Payne Foreign Policy Fellowship Each fellowship cohort brings together individuals with diverse interests in policy areas in order to complement and enrich the experiences of all program participants. Fellows are paid an annual salary of $40,000 plus benefits. Participants must reside in or relocate to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and are responsible for their own travel, housing, and other living expenses.
