In Digital Age, Schools That Succeed are Schools That Connect

For most children, the key to success will continue to be sharp critical skills, strong connections, effective communication and the nerve to be creative and entrepreneurial. The difference is that we are living at a time in which all of those skills are defined by one’s proficiency in connected media. Furthermore, for students facing poverty, violence and disability, online learning networks can provide empowering educational experiences that transcend the circumstances of the classroom.

 

Ultimately, the school that ignores the connection will be the school that we will identify as a failing institution. It is therefore even crueler that policymakers obsessed with standardized test results — like Ms. Rhee and her many disciples — ignore what the connection represents.

This article showed me that even social media plays an important part in schools. I use to think that social medias were just distractions, but now i know that it can actually help in my studies.

Not sure I'll find actual technological things to do to increase motivation, but I want to come back to this and read through it to see if it offers anything new and interesting.  May also connect to the global collaboration project lesson.

I used to think that schools that have smart students is in general a good school overall, but now i realised that even if u have smart students in the school if u do not connect to social media or have very little access to it, the school is counted as a failing institiution.

Poverty in the EU: increasing in the Eurozone, decreasing outside of it

Poverty in the EU: increasing in the Eurozone, decreasing outside of it | poverty assignment_leehongteng | Scoop.it

"Material poverty in the Eurozone is increasing. In Ireland, Greece and Latvia (in 2011 not yet a Eurozone member but surely a wannabe) one year changes were nothing short of dramatic. Poverty in the EU outside the Eurozone is decreasing ..."

Lee Hong Teng's insight:

This article shows that even eurozone suffered from poverty, something that i did not know, so even if the country is rich it does not mean that the people of the country are also rich. People suffering from material deprivation not being able to afford a meal with meat,or they cannot afford to pay their rental etc.. Poverty outside eurozone is decreasing while poverty in eurozone is increasing.

Hossan Epiques Novelle's curator insight, January 19, 2014 4:35 AM

This article shows that there poverty exists, even in the rich countries. It proves that although the country is well-off, not all of its citizens are. "At the same time, unemployment increased and investments went down in the EU and especially inside the Eurozone, which means that income and production were clearly below capacity." The economy of the Eurozone has deteoriated slightly, affecting many people and their income. As foreign countries become economical competitors, the investments into the Eurozone are sure to drop.
