To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Secondary Education | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

 

Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”

“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.)

.

On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

I think it is a wonderful idea when Obama came up with a new plan for preschool education. The thing that is concerning to me are all the aspects might change and that might not be for the good.
Jacob Ostreng's comment, May 8, 2014 5:28 PM
I think that it is good that Obama is investing in education, but I think that he should also try to decrease tuition costs at universities.
Nick Sigrist's curator insight, May 12, 2014 9:12 AM

Obama is continuing to focus investments on education, which is very important. But having an even bigger focus on PRE-education is not what we need, necessarily. We should be focused on relieving the debts of college graduates, and aiding in the funding of high school educations, which can have a much bigger impact on students quality-wise than an early childhood education can.

This is kind of sad. I feel like half the point of college is the experience, and it is sad knowing that colleges and students are starting to turn to web based learning now. I prefer the face to face classroom and lectures and it's scary thinkingr that my college experience may not include that.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | Secondary Education | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

It is great to have special education teachers and you can't thank them enough for the job they do in turning around somebody's life. Education is a big part of kid's future, and special education teachers give everyone a fair chance to succeed in life.

Luke French's comment, May 11, 2014 9:07 PM
Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

Kyle Kohn's curator insight, May 7, 2014 9:24 PM
Career in Education is one of the rare opportunities that may never get outdated. The demand for qualified and talented teachers will persist as long as there is a desire to learn. It's a learning where knowledge, skills, and habits of individuals are handed over from one generation to another through teaching, training and research. Individuals should research innovative ways of teaching to bring about improvement in today's education system.

Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights | | Secondary Education | Scoop.it

 

Education 3.0 is what I believe we can aspire to so as to educate our students, at all levels, in ways that actually promote 21st-century skills and prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow (aka, the jobs that don’t exist today but which will be required in the future). It’s the coming together of creativity, outcomes, critical thinking, big data, personalization, and much more.

 

For me, it’s really the confluence of three crucial education elements: Neuroscience, Cognitive (Learning) Psychology, and Education Technology.

Gust MEES's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:35 AM

 

And it’s that last point that we need to deal with effectively, if we want to get to Education 3.0. We have to learn how to embrace technology as the ultimate empowering agent, not as a competitor or loss-of-control agent. We have to start including social networking in our learning environments so as to connect students to peers, instructors, other subject matter experts, content, and more.


We need to start measuring more of the appropriate behaviors and elements of cognition to provide rich, meaningful learning analytics. (Note – this doesn’t mean measure what’s easiest or available, but what matters.

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Secondary Education | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.
