Introducing this work

Introducing this work | Internet Tools for Language Learning | Scoop.it

For the purposes of this Scoop.it site, the history of human interaction with information may be divided into 4 eras. The first (spoken) era ended with the invention of writing around 3000-4000 BC. The second era ended with the invention of the printing press in 1440. The third era ended, and the fourth began, with the invention of the Internet (depending how one defines its operational beginning) somewhere between 1969 and 1982. We now exist early, but decidedly, in the fourth era.

 

All readers may not agree with this interpretation of history, especially with the division and numbering of the eras. That is not the main point here. Rather, it is that humankind is presently existing in an era distinctly different from the one that preceded it -- that in fact, this new era is accompanied with, and characterized by, a new - and quite different - information landscape. This new Internet information landscape will challenge, disrupt, and overpower the print-oriented one that came before it. It will not completely obliterate that which preceded it, but it will render it to a subsidiary, rather than primary, level of influence.

 

Just as the printing press altered humanity's relationship with information, thereby resulting in massive restructuring of political, religious, economic, social, educational, cultural, scientific, and other realms of life; so too will the Internet occasion analogous transformations in the corresponding universe of present and future human activity.

 

This site will concern itself primarily with how K-20 education in the US, and the people who comprise its constituencies, may be affected by this transformative movement from one era to the next. All ideas considered here appear, to me at least, to impact the learning enterprise in some way. Accordingly, this work looks at the present and the future through a lens that is predominantly, but far from entirely, a digital one. -JL

The real 21st-century problem in public education: Poverty ~ Washington Post

The real 21st-century problem in public education: Poverty ~ Washington Post | Internet Tools for Language Learning | Scoop.it

by Elaine Weiss

 

"The October 2013 Southern Education Foundation study indicates clearly that poverty, which has long been the biggest obstacle to educational achievement, is more important than ever. It is our true 21st century problem. Fifty years ago, we educated mostly working-class kids and up, and we did not expect those at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder to graduate. Now we educate all students, including the very poorest and otherwise disadvantaged. And we expect them all to graduate. Compounding this shift, a large and growing proportion of U.S. students students live in poverty and even concentrated poverty, have a disability, and/or are learning English as a second language. THAT is the paradigm shift, and we need a totally new set of policies to address that 21st century reality.

 

"In 2000, students who were eligible for free or reduced-price meals made up at least half of the student body in four states. Just eleven years later, over half of public school students are poor in 17 states, including every Southern state but Virginia and Maryland, and most Western states. Student poverty is the dominant reality in schools in three of the biggest states – California, Texas, and Florida—and nearly the majority in New York, Michigan, and Illinois. The 21st century has sharply increased the proportion of parents who are unemployed, whose jobs do not pay enough to provide basic food, shelter, clothing, and health care for their children, and/or whose immigrant status limit their capacity to navigate the education system and restrict them to a shadow economy."

Sim Kee Yew's curator insight, January 21, 2014 8:01 AM

After reading this article,I understand that poverty is a big obstacle to educational achievement.I was taken by surprise when I heard that student poverty is dominant in three of the major states which is California,Texas and Florida.I also feel that the number of students that are poor is surprising.I feel that more aid should go to poor students in the areas of healthcare and financial aid.Right here in Singapore,my homeland,I am glad that my country's government is providing this scheme called the "financial assistance scheme" which aims to help those students who have a low household income.The government actually funds the school fees of those in the scheme and the money saved by the student and his family can be used to fill their stomachs.In terms of healthcare,the governments, no matter which country,even Singapore should provide more funded health checks for poor students in poverty.The reason is that the health checks will keep them healthy and bad health will not affect their studies.Thus,they would have a higher chance to shine.
