A story nerd, as I understand it, is someone who loves to get into the geeky details and “inside baseball” mechanics of storytelling. A story nerd knows what a Value Shift is. She’s intimate with concepts like “beats” and “reveals.” She knows the Five Commandments of Storytelling. A story nerd is kinda like a Trekkie except she doesn’t wear Vulcan ears or appear in public dressed as a Klingon.

An "Open Textbook" for Introduction to Philosophy (guest post by Christina Hendricks) - Daily Nous

An "Open Textbook" for Introduction to Philosophy (guest post by Christina Hendricks) - Daily Nous | immersive media | Scoop.it
The following is a guest post* by Christina Hendricks, Professor of Teaching in the Department of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, about creating an “open textbook” for introductory courses in philosophy. It originally appeared on her blog, You’re The Teacher. An Open Textbook for Introduction to Philosophy by Christina Hendricks After talking about it for a few years, I am finally able to start working on an open textbook for introduction to philosophy courses. There are a few of us working on it already, and we’re going to need all the help we can get…so this post is to introduce the project and talk about how others can get involved. Open textbooks First, what is an “open textbook”? The easiest way to think about it is that it is like any other textbook except in two crucial respects: First, it is free of cost to students. There is no price tag. This comes with another implication: we are doing this for free ourselves. There is no publisher who is paying us to create the textbook, and there are no “royalties.” But frankly, I can’t imagine ever making much off of a textbook anyway (how many new textbooks are there a year, and how many actually make money? I don’t know but I am skeptical of it being terribly lucrative in philosophy). Second, open textbooks have an “open license” that allows others to reuse, revise, remix it with other things and release new versions publicly for others to use, revise, etc. The most common open licenses for educational resources like this are Creative Commons licenses, which come in several versions. See this CC page for a general discussion of the licenses and different license types; the University of British Columbia Creative Commons Guide has further information, including a comparison chart. The license we will be using for this textbook is the most permissible of the CC licenses that require attribution of the original content creators: CC BY, which lets content be used and revised by anyone for any purpose as long as the original creators are attributed. Why do this? I can’t speak for others, but I myself have two main motivations, having to do with the two characteristics of..

John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music | Josh Jones | OpenCulture.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has argued in his many public lectures and his book The Jazz of Physics that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common. Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations. Coltrane gave the drawing to saxophonist and professor Yusef Lateef in 1967, who included it in his seminal text, Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Where Lateef, as he writes in his autobiography, sees Coltrane’s music as a “spiritual journey” that “embraced the concerns of a rich tradition of autophysiopsychic music,” Alexander sees “the same geometric principle that motivated Einstein’s” quantum theory.

Neither description seems out of place. Musician and blogger Roel Hollander notes, “Thelonious Monk once said ‘All musicans are subconsciously mathematicians.’ Musicians like John Coltrane though have been very much aware of the mathematics of music and consciously applied it to his works."

Educators use congressional recess to warn lawmakers about destructive Trump-DeVos budget | Brian Washington | NEA.org

Educators use congressional recess to warn lawmakers about destructive Trump-DeVos budget | Brian Washington | NEA.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Washington educator Pam Kruse, an 8th grade teacher with 24-years of classroom experience, plans to attend tonight one of the hundreds of town halls taking place nationwide this week during Congress’ April recess.

She sees it as part of her responsibility as an educator and something she owes her students.

I am not going to give up my voice and have someone else do it,” said Kruse. “That’s my job as a citizen, an educator, and an advocate for students.

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate left Washington, D.C. last week and are now back home showing up at local town halls and taking calls and visits from thousands of educators, like Kruse, who are worried about President Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ education budget.

The Trump-DeVos budget seeks to slash education funding by a staggering $9 billion dollars. But it sets aside $1.4 billion for private school vouchers. Vouchers, often called some other name that masks the fact that it’s really a voucher scheme, including education savings accounts, tuition tax credits, and opportunity scholarships, use public tax dollars to subsidize tuition at private schools. Vouchers also drain valuable resources away from the 9 out of 10 students who are educated in our public schools.

English teachers have longer-term impact than math teachers | Susanna Loeb | Medium.com

English teachers have longer-term impact than math teachers | Susanna Loeb | Medium.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Recent education reform efforts commonly aim at improving teacher effectiveness. One study of three large districts finds that they spent approximately $18,000 for professional development for each teacher each year. Numerous education agencies, such as the District of Columbia Public Schools with its IMPACT effectiveness system for school-based personnel, and the state of Tennessee with its Tennessee Educator Acceleration Model, have invested substantial resources in teacher evaluation and feedback.

These policies arose, at least in part, from the recognition that teachers affect not only student learning in the short-run, but also long-run outcomes such as college attendance and earnings as adults. A recent study following more than two million students estimated that having a teacher in grades four through eight with average effectiveness, instead of one who is among the five percent least effective, would increase a students’ lifetime income by more than $250,000. Teachers also affect the likelihood that a student attends any college, attends a higher-ranked college, does not have children as a teenager, and saves more for retirement.

As the mother of a transgender daughter and sibling of a lesbian sister, English teacher Laura Bernard knows exactly what LGBTQ students need in school—support and a safe place to learn.

“I’ve had to fight to protect the rights of my loved ones—friends, family, and students—which is why I have been the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) club advisor for the School for Social Justice (a Los Angeles public high school) four years now,” confides Bernard.

“Once you empower students you can start a movement,” Bernard says of student-led GSA clubs that work to create a network of support for LGBTQ students and a welcoming environment for all students. Studies link GSA’s to enriched academic and social experiences for gay students and improved overall school climate.
