Using Social Media in Education to Effect Positive Global Change

Using Social Media in Education to Effect Positive Global Change | Positive futures | Scoop.it

When environmental disasters occur and there are social uprisings of oppressed peoples of the world, no longer do we have to rely on mainstream media, which are often in the pocket of powerful political interests.

We now have Twitter, which in my view is one of the most powerful tools for social change and raisingglobal awareness we have ever had!  Through my own proactive participation on Twitter, I have been able to take part in positive social movements for change in unison with those of like mind.

It's important to keep in mind your audience and how the ideal prospect likes to consume content.  Scientists or engineers for example my consume or respect different media than consumers of clothing or electronics.

The Missing Piece -- How Social and Emotional Learning Can Empower Children and Transform Schools

The Missing Piece -- How Social and Emotional Learning Can Empower Children and Transform Schools | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Arithmetic and higher math skills are embedded in school goals, but not necessarily persistence and grit. As a result, an "either/or" dynamic has been established that prioritizes academic skills, at the expense of "social and emotional" learning.

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel

Musings of a (New) Education Insurgent | I hereby declare myself an education rebel | Positive futures | Scoop.it
SHIFT PARADIGM | by Mark E. Weston The system of schooling to which I have dedicated my life seems incapable of educating all students to high levels of learning


Taking those lessons to heart, I hereby declare myself an education rebel who will no longer work to save the educational system for which I’ve long toiled.


Further, I vow to work to create, nurture, and give voice to an educational alternative that employs proven educational practices—real and individualized differentiated instruction, real and serious engagement of parents, ubiquitous access to information for all, and consistent and relevant feedback about performance—that will produce aptitude-defying-levels of learning among all students. I will work for new paradigm schools and technological tools.


I make this declaration knowing full well that being a rebel will be lots of work because lots of vested interests will work just as hard to maintain the dysfunctional status quo.


Join me in this space for regular updates about the education revolution. Your comments, suggestions, feedback and constructive criticism are welcome!

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America

The Soldiers & the Schoolteachers: An Unlikely Coalition Committed to Liberating Genius in America | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Together, as an unlikely coalition of soldiers and schoolteachers, politicians and pastors, and business leaders and bankers we can lead the change we want to see--beginning right now.

 

Over the past 20 years, the Internet and technology have changed the world, and the workplace, dramatically. Unfortunately, most students today receive an education substantially similar to what their parents received in the 1970s and 1980s, even as the demands of the job market today are dramatically different than what their parents encountered, and continue to morph every day.

 

Instead of encouraging critical and creative thinking in our children, many of our schools demand that students memorize predetermined answers, or study predetermined methods to deliver the predetermined solution.

 

Instead of creating opportunities to spur kids to "color outside the lines" or "think outside the box," we reward them for turning off their imaginations and toeing the line, or staying in line. No questions asked.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:50 PM

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan. Het onderzoek is welliswaar primair gericht op Amerika, maar door de verdere globalisering en internationalisering interessant voor een ieder die met mensen werkt of gaat werken!

EU will offer every young person employment or training within four months of leaving school

EU will offer every young person employment or training within four months of leaving school | Positive futures | Scoop.it

The European Commission has launched their latest Youth Employment Package requesting a guarantee from all Member States that every young person receives a quality offer of employment or training within four months of leaving school, or of being unemployed. The proposal will make full use of EU funding and in particular the European Social Fund (ESF), which was set up to reduce the differences in prosperity and living standards across EU Member States and regions.

 

The new Youth Employment Package is part of the initiative Rethinking Education - designed to reduce the youth unemployment rate. Research has shown that the figure is close to 23 % across the European Union, yet more than 2 million vacancies remain unfilled.

Audrey's curator insight, April 2, 4:55 AM

This is what was found:  "The students in the Independent Project are remarkable but not because they are exceptionally motivated or unusually talented. They are remarkable because they demonstrate the kinds of learning and personal growth that are possible when teenagers feel ownership of their high school experience, when they learn things that matter to them and when they learn together. In such a setting, school capitalizes on rather than thwarts the intensity and engagement that teenagers usually reserve for sports, protest or friendship..."

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic] | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Students can’t live without their devices, so schools should embrace the change.

 

Tablets are being adopted at an impressive rate, and tablet purchases are expected to outpace smartphone purchases over the next two years. Tablet ownership among college students has correspondingly skyrocketed and a Pearson Foundation survey found that it has tripled from a year ago. One-quarter of college students currently own a tablet.
