California Senate Elects Latino Leader

California Senate Elects Latino Leader | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it

 

The California state Senate has elected Kevin de Leon, a Latino, as leader. On Monday, the Senate named as its next leader a Los Angeles Democrat who is best known for championing policies benefiting low-wage workers and their children.


By voice vote, the 40-member chamber elected Sen. Kevin de Leon to succeed Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg of Sacramento, who will step down Oct. 15, about seven weeks after this year's legislative session has ended. De Leon, 47, will become just the second Latino leader of the Senate, and the first in more than 130 years.


Steinberg described de Leon as a lawmaker who is not afraid to lead. He cited his role last year in pushing a bill that gave immigrants in the country illegally a way to obtain driver's licenses, an attempt that succeeded after several years of failure. "Kevin is smart. He is seasoned. He is hungry to get big things done," Steinberg told his colleagues before the vote.

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it
Tips to make sure classroom technology is focused on asking students to be creative, collaborative and analytical.
David Mackzum, Ed.D.'s insight:

He suggests the best way to build equitable classroom technology use is to create a culture of trust. That takes time, but Mills said teachers need to give students a chance to prove themselves before displaying mistrust. “Instead of automatically saying, ‘I don’t trust you,’ why not create opportunities where you can trust them,” he said.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 2, 11:57 AM

Excerpt:

"Art making has changed radically in recent years. Artists have become increasingly interested in crossing disciplinary boundaries—choreographers use video, sculpture, and text; photographers create "paintings" with repurposed textiles. New technologies enable new kinds of work, like interactive performances with both live and Web-based components. International collaboration has become de rigueur. Art and design pervade the culture"

Suspensions, Expulsions, Arrests Don't Work: On School Discipline, We Can Do Better

Suspensions, Expulsions, Arrests Don't Work: On School Discipline, We Can Do Better | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it

Stick a few hundred kids together in a building for six hours and you can bet that a few are going to misbehave. How teachers and administrators should react to rule infractions -- especially more serious ones -- is perennial problem. What’s a better way? The overarching principle emphasized in the report is the creation of more positive environments in schools and classrooms, and more supportive relationships among students, teachers, and administration.

Bob Farrace's curator insight, June 17, 7:54 AM

It merits repeating: "The overarching principle emphasized in the report is the creation of more positive environments in schools and classrooms, and more supportive relationships among students, teachers, and administration."

This principle is the hallmark of NASSP's Breaking Ranks framework. Supportive relationships are an essential condition, not just for discipline, but for any school-improvement initiative.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, June 17, 9:49 AM

The article makes the point that maybe we can't do everything at once, but the important think is to pick an issue and work on it. You are planning for next year now. Make your discipline policies a priority,
