There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it

How to Succeed? This is a question many people around the world ask every day. Is Success Random? Or is it a result of hard and long work?

 

They say that each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can. You always have to trust in yourself and your abilities. If you are focused on your goal and work on it on the daily basis, you succeed.

Your online image is more important than ever - here are 5 ways it can make or break you

Your online image is more important than ever  - here are 5 ways it can make or break you | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it
You’re hardly the only person who’s ever Google-stalked a crush or scoured a future employer’s Facebook page. In fact, there’s a really good chance that the person or the company has done exactly the same reconnaissance on you.

What they find can have a profound impact on your relationship (or potential relationship) with them. Which is to say: The “real you,” or your personal brand, now encompasses your behaviour in face-to-face interactions and your behaviour online.

Below, Business Insider has rounded up five examples of times when you might be judged — fairly or unfairly — based on your online presence.

Teaching Kids Controversy: Education, Pluralism, and Hot Topics

Teaching Kids Controversy: Education, Pluralism, and Hot Topics | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it
Public schools were created with a mission to bring diverse people together and inculcate shared values thought necessary for democracy. But teaching children about politically, religiously, racially, or otherwise highly charged topics has turned out to be very difficult, driven by fear of igniting explosive conflicts. The result has been that potential flashpoints—but also crucial topics—have often bee

Students are curious. They have many questions. Hannah Arendt argued we live in the midst of radical pluralism. Classrooms can be safe places for students to interact and learn about the plurality they live in.

The Rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon

The Rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it
The push for educational technology exists within a broader political, economic, ideological, and technological context. The all-too-common ignorance of this context and the subtleties of learning itself may prove problematic for edtech — and higher education's future.

The First Year Teaching: Should I join educational associations? | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it
By Matthew Lynch New teachers will sooner or later consider the option of joining an educational association. The groups not only provide support, but also continuing education for teachers. There are two main associations in America, and several smaller ones that are also worth consideration.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 13, 2016 11:17 AM

Think of higher education as a glacier. It moves slowly and grinds fine.  This glacier is now calving.  Microcredentials, nanodegrees, competency based programs are a response to a growing demand for work relevant learning. 

 

It's time to get over thinking of education as a 4 or 6 year degree track.  The demands of RIGHT NOW will create lifelong learners.

Teachers Go Public With Their Resignation Letters

Teachers Go Public With Their Resignation Letters | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it
A new study calls teachers' online grievances against the profession a form of social action.
Dennis Swender's insight:
Freelance education writer Brenda Iasevoli (14 Apr 2017), writes, “Scripted lessons, an oppressive testing culture, and a punitive evaluation system are the main reasons teachers are heading for the exits…. 
  
“That sentiment informs the central component of the teacher resignation letter: a description of what's wrong with U.S. education today. Gerald J. Conti, a social studies department leader in the Westhill Central School District in Syracuse, N.Y., offers a case study. The 40-year veteran cites many reasons for his exit, not the least of which is what he sees as an overreliance on "data-driven education" that "seeks only conformity, standardization, testing, and a zombie-like adherence to the shallow and generic Common Core. 
 
"Like the other letter writers, Conti expresses feelings of abandonment by a profession which, as he says, no longer trusts teachers to create their own quizzes, and then eats away at their planning time by making them prepare lessons and other materials for review. "After all of this, I realize that I am not leaving my profession; in truth, it has left me," he writes. "It no longer exists." 
 
Iasevoli is the author of “The Hechinger Report: Covering Innovation & Inequality in Education” (http://hechingerreport.org/author/brenda-iasevoli/)

Leave the hierarchies to the algorithms

Leave the hierarchies to the algorithms | ED 262 KCKCC Su '17 | Scoop.it

What happens when you connect unthinking computer programs with a culture of obedience and compliance? Algorithms run much of society and business today, from applying for a mortgage to determining which passengers to eject from an overbooked aircraft. Coupled with authoritarianism, algorithms can produce devastating results, says John Robb at Global Guerillas.

“If a corporate algorithm yields a terrible result, smart organizations admit the failure. They admit it didn’t work to both your customers and employees. Algorithms don’t have feelings. They won’t cry if you talk trash about them. Also, smart organizations don’t punish employees for raising the flag on a broken algorithm. One last thought. Smart organizations know what their algorithms are (or that they even exist) and how to fix them. Dumb organizations see the process as inviable. It should be easy to spot the difference between these organizations by the number of disasters seen online” (John Robb)

Dennis Swender's insight:
The work of Stanley Milgram and these words from Jacob Bronowski are applicable:
 
 "It's said that science will dehumanize people and turn them into numbers. That's false, tragically false. Look for yourself. This is the concentration camp and crematorium at Auschwitz. This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance, it was done by dogma, it was done by ignorance. When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave. This is what men do when they aspire to the knowledge of gods. Science is a very human form of knowledge. We are always at the brink of the known; we always feel forward for what is to be hoped. Every judgment in science stands on the edge of error and is personal. Science is a tribute to what we can know although we are fallible. In the end, the words were said by Oliver Cromwell: "I beseech you in the bowels of Christ: Think it possible you may be mistaken." I owe it as a scientist to my friend Leo Szilard, I owe it as a human being to the many members of my family who died here, to stand here as a survivor and a witness. We have to cure ourselves of the itch for absolute knowledge and power. We have to close the distance between the push-button order and the human act. We have to touch people."

This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness. Make time (just over an hour) for this fascinating discussion between Harari and TED curator Chris Anderson.
