Educating juveniles in the justice system

Educating juveniles in the justice system | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
"I am getting 15 years on Monday," my 16-year-old student said to me. On his 17th birthday, he will be woken, shackled and transported to the Cook County Department of Corrections and the notoriously overcrowded Cook County Jail. He may get out of prison by age 30, but many of the 16- and 17-year-olds I teach are looking at prison sentences of 25 years or more.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Transitioning to Common Core was challenging. We struggled to plan learning experiences that taught explicit skills. Teachers learned to create skill-based assessments first, then design lessons that taught the skill using the course content. Our students had to get used to the changes in how teachers taught and how to demonstrate what they learned in the classroom.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

For sure, education has never been an issue that’s gotten much attention in the media. So when the subject of the economy and jobs would come up, politicians and policymakers on all sides could repeat bromides like “we need to educate our way to a better economy” and no one – at least among the pundit class – would give this nonsense the least bit of scrutiny.

Declara CEO Ramona Pierson made tragedy a learning experience | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
The gig: Ramona Pierson, 51, is chief executive of Declara, a start-up based in Palo Alto that has developed a way for companies to use sophisticated techniques and advanced Internet search to create workplace tools. In two years, it has grown to 57 employees, and the company has attracted $5 million in funding from such notable investors as Peter Thiel.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Given her focus on learning, Pierson applies a distinct philosophy when it comes to looking for new employees.

And then the company provides extensive mentoring and training to help them develop the skills they need.

Business education | The post- recession leader | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
As a global economic recovery gathers pace, organisations are focused on growth again. And having learnt the lessons of the downturn, leaders in all sectors are recognising the need to brush up on their softer skills. So how do the business schools measure up?
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

To be a transformational leader in the context of globalisation, corporate social responsibility and innovation requires a balance of technical and soft skills. As the pedagogy of the online MBA is based on collaboration and communication, students develop technical knowhow and their softer inter-personal skills in parallel.
