the history of civics and news literacy education | Peter Levine Blog | Digital Media & Learning | Scoop.it
I’m in Chicago for Poynter’s News Literacy Summit, entitled “Because News Matters.” Participants promote (to varying degrees) such outcomes as: following and understanding the news, taking informed action as citizens, understanding how the media work, critically interpreting news, understanding society and politics, valuing high-quality news, understanding media effects on individual behaviors and attitudes, being well informed about current events, civilly discussing controversial issues, valuing First Amendment freedoms, making news media, and making other forms of media. Each of these objectives has been pursued for a long time. John Dewey, for example, was a great proponent of news media literacy. To get a rough sense of what has been taught over time, consider this graph of the percentage of American students who’ve had various courses on their transcripts: Click headline to read more and view chart--

IN: Education discussed as key to Gary revitalization |  Christin Nance Lazerus | Post-Tribune | Digital Media & Learning | Scoop.it
Neighborhood revitalization and blight elimination efforts are bright spots on Gary’s horizon, according to Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, but creating an effective education system is paramount to the city’s future success. “Nothing happens until we have an education system that meets the needs of all of our students,” Freeman-Wilson said. “Employers don’t come and invest, and other institutions don’t grow until we have an education system that all of us can be proud of.” How that change takes shape was the focus of a community conversation on Tuesday at Indiana University Northwest. Speakers discussed a new state pilot program for 4-year-olds, informing parents of summer and after-school programs, creating better education environments, and the best methods to mobilize the community to improving education. Keynote speaker Katy Stillman, strategic assistance director for StriveTogether, talked about the efforts to improve education outcomes in the Fort Wayne area. What started as an effort to tackle economic development became a call to action on education, she said. “We wanted a collective impact on every child from cradle to career because educational outcomes shouldn’t be determined by your ZIP code,” Stillman said. They examined data, such as research indicating that by 2025, 60 percent of all jobs will require some sort of postsecondary education or training. Stillman said the city should look at four key pillars as it moves forward: establishing a shared community vision, developing evidence-based decision making, emphasizing collaborative action, and investing and sustaining the commitment for long-term success.
