Nietzsche Lays Out His Philosophy of Education and a Still-Timely Critique of the Modern University (1872)

In a recent entry in the New York Times' philosophy blog 'The Stone,' Robert Frodeman and Adam Briggle locate a 'momentous turning point' in the history of philosophy: its institutionalization in the research university in the late 19th century.

The 13 most innovative schools in the world

The 13 most innovative schools in the world | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

Innovation in education can look like lots of things, like incorporating new technology or teaching methods, going on field trips, rejecting social norms, partnering with the local community. It can be a floating school in an impoverished region, like the one in Lagos, Nigeria. Or it can be a school that's blind to gender, like Egalia, in Stockholm, Sweden.

Generalmente pensamos en la innovación educativa como la incorporación de tecnología al salón de clases, pero en realidad la innovación tiene muchas formas de manifestarse.

Thinking and teaching outside the box is happening on a global level.  America does not have the best system.  On a global level we are way behind the curve.  It's up to educators in the US to find better ways to become more innovative in the educational process.

A 21st-century higher education: training for jobs of the future

A 21st-century higher education: training for jobs of the future | Passe-partout | Scoop.it
Only the brave or foolhardy would claim knowledge about the shape of jobs for the next decade, let alone the rest of the 21st century. We know that the end of local car manufacturing alone will involve the loss of up to 200,000 jobs directly or indirectly, and there will be no large-scale manufacturing to replace them.

We also cannot assume that employment in health and human services will continue to expand in their place. Globally, millions of dollars are being invested in robotic monitors, nurses and companions for the elderly. The driverless car is almost with us, meaning that even Uber’s moment in the sun may be brief.

So if we’re not sure what the jobs of the future will look like, what kind of tertiary education can prepare students for the world of work? Various forces will be at play including economic (such as continued globalisation and intensification of competition), social (such as the ageing of Australia’s population), and technological (automation, digitalisation). There are also powerful environmental constraints.
What kind of education can prepare us for the future?

Peeple app for rating human beings causes uproar - BBC News

Peeple app for rating human beings causes uproar - BBC News | Passe-partout | Scoop.it
A new app that promises to let users review individuals has caused controversy before it has even launched.

Peeple will allow members to give star ratings to people they know via the app, much as restaurants and hotels are rated on sites such as Yelp.

The app has caused uproar online, with web users describing it as "creepy" and "terrifying".

Peeple's founders say they will pre-screen for negative abuse.

However, users will not be able to delete comments made about them. Nor will they be able to remove themselves from the site once on it.

Among those raising concern was University of East Anglia law lecturer and privacy advocate Paul Bernal.

"The bottom line is this is extremely creepy," he told the BBC. "It is an ideal trolling tool."

Mr Bernal added that he was sceptical that the app could ensure users knew the person they were rating.

"How are you determining whether somebody knows somebody?" he asked.

"If you're using Facebook friends, do people really know all their Facebook friends? Absolutely not."
Legal 'headaches'

There may be legal difficulties too, according to Steven Heffer, a partner at the law firm Collyer-Bristow.

"I can only see a lot of headaches," he told the BBC. "It looks to me like potentially a recipe for a legal disaster."

Mr Heffer said the app was different from existing social media in that it specifically encouraged users to assess others and that negative comments on individuals would be difficult to police.

"They can't be judge and jury, can they?" he said.

"They might have some kind of safety net, but it's not going to stop people being defamed and suffering damage as well."

The website for Peeple says that negative reviews will be stalled for 48 hours before being published, so that they can be checked by the person being rated.

However, if they are not able to resolve the comment with the person making it within that time, it will go live anyway.

"The desperate men, women, and children flooding into Europe from the Middle East and Africa are not the only people moving along ever-shifting and dangerous migration routes. Last year saw the highest levels of global forced displacement on record—59.5 million individuals left their homes in 2014 due to 'persecution, conflict, generalized violence, or human rights violations' according to the United Nations. That's 8.3 million more people than the year before."
