Effects of the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign on youths

Could the US government's biggest ever attempt to use the media to turn US youth away from cannabis actually have done the reverse? At best it was a disappointment; at worst, it counterproductively fostered the impression that 'Everyone's doing it'.

Terrific insights!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 19, 5:24 PM

Several months ago I scooped an article by George Couros who used the word myth in this title as well. Myths always have kernels of truth. Joseph Campbell and James Hillman wrote about myths and their role in our lives. There are parts of them that are pure fiction. For example, and the two articles contrast each other, this one suggests that digital technologies will not replace teachers. This is true in some settings, perhaps the independent school movement, but in public schools with neo-liberal agendas driving the supposed reform that is just not the case. Digital technologies are being trumpeted as making learning more efficient displacing the role of the teacher in many respects.

Even in Education Everything Old is New Again

Even in Education Everything Old is New Again | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

It’s been over fifty years since the article “Teaching Machines” appeared in the Science Journal from which the opening quote was excerpted. Author B.F. Skinner would be pleased to read some of the headlines in the education sector this week, one in particular “College in a Box” (Kahn, 2014) which describes how textbook publishers such as Pearson have developed enhanced textbooks and put them on their online platforms such as MyMathLab. These enhanced ‘books’ feature interactive quizzes, tutorials, immediate feedback, and tutorial videos based upon students’ responses. Pearson’s new spin on the old textbook would likely meet Skinner’s definition of efficiency. Coincidently, the instructional method used for Pearson’s textbook programs is programmed instruction; a method Skinner developed and applied with his teaching machine. Skinner’s machine consisted of a program, developed to deliver a self-learning experience for the student that included presenting of content, related questions for students to answers, immediate  and corrective feedback.
