Noam Chomsky on Democracy and Education in the 21st Century and Beyond

Noam Chomsky on Democracy and Education in the 21st Century and Beyond | New 21st Century Challenges | Scoop.it
In a wide-ranging consideration of 21st century education, Noam Chomsky argues that much of what passes for education reform is 'a way of turning the population into a bunch of imbeciles.'

A really must read.

Once again I find myself forced to agree with much of what Chomsky has to say, though we would probably differ on the solutions to the problems.

Noam does it again!

Dennis Richards's comment, June 4, 2013 10:14 AM
A very powerful statement. Learning that too few students experience. I find myself wondering...if we could change schools to be more engaging for students, what would the future be like? Push passion for learning.

The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger

The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger | New 21st Century Challenges | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this long and useful article by ProBlogger about Pinterest:
"I believe that blogs in any niche, not just DIY crafty blogs, are missing out on huge amounts of traffic and exposure if they are ignoring Pinterest. If you want to see your blog grow in leaps and bounds in 2013, you’ve got to pay attention to Pinterest.

I want to make sure that you fully understand the power of Pinterest, I’m going to start with the very basics before digging into the good stuff that will get you the blog success you’re looking for.
At least read through the basics and info about using Pinterest accounts so that you have a better understanding of what’s going on and how to apply that to your blog.

Here’s what I’m going to cover:
- What is Pinterest?
- Why care about Pinterest?
- Basics of using Pinterest.
- Strategies for using your Pinterest account.
- Get your pins maximum exposure.
- Get more traffic to your blog using Pinterest.
- Pinterest tools for bloggers."

Each section is analyzed with many details. Read full interesting article here:

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Sugata Mitra: Slum chic? 7 reasons for doubt | New 21st Century Challenges | Scoop.it

Who among you in the developed world would abandon all teaching and install ‘hole-in-the-wall’ learning for your own children? We are being asked to believe that the solution to the lack of opportunities in third world education are computers in walls?
