A 13-Year-Old's Slavery Analogy Raises Some Uncomfortable Truths in School - Education - GOOD

A 13-Year-Old's Slavery Analogy Raises Some Uncomfortable Truths in School - Education - GOOD | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

In a bold comparative analysis of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Jada Williams, a 13-year old eighth grader at School #3 in Rochester, New York, asserted that in her experience, today's education system is a modern-day version of slavery. According to the Fredrick Douglass Foundation of New York, the schools' teachers and administrators were so offended by Williams' essay that they began a campaign of harassment—kicking her out of class and trying to suspend her—that ultimately forced her parents to withdraw her from the school.

21st Century Pedagogy

21st Century Pedagogy | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"Even if you have a 21st Century classroom(flexible and adaptable); even if you are a 21st Century teacher ; (an adaptor, a communicator, a leader and a learner, a visionary and a model, a collaborator and risk taker) even if your curriculum reflects the new paradigm and you have the facilities and resources that could enable 21st century learning – you will only be a 21st century teacher if how you teach changes as well. Your pedagogy must also change."

"Washington D.C.-based writer and education activist Sam Chaltain took to his Twitter feed and blog this week to pose a timely question: 'Out of all the outstanding and forward-thinking schools in the world,' he wrote, 'which ones are truly the most transformational when it comes to imagining a new way to think about teaching and learning in the 21st century?'"

A Tech-Happy Professor Reboots

"Michael Wesch has been on the lecture circuit for years touting new models of active teaching with technology. The associate professor of cultural anthropology at Kansas State University has given TED talks. Wired magazine gave him a Rave Award. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching once named him a national professor of the year. But now Mr. Wesch finds himself rethinking the fundamentals of teaching—and questioning his own advice."

The Classroom to Prison Pipleline | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"The school-to-prison pipeline starts in the classroom. I know. During 4th-period English, I came dangerously close to becoming the teacher who pushes students out of class into the halls, into the arms of the school dean, and out into the streets. I understand the thin line teachers tread between creating safe classrooms and creating push-out zones."
