The Wizards of the Future | Remote Access, even from here | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

By Clarence Fisher

 

"I know this has been making the rounds on twitter and other places, but I thought it was worth reposting if you haven’t seen it.

 

"Is it marketing? Absolutely. Is this a bad thing? I don’t think so.

 

"I showed this in my class today and the kids were pretty interested. Funny; they knew who Mark Zuckerberg was as soon as he came up on the video. Bill Gates on screen elicited a “who’s that?” Changing times."

Jim Lerman's insight:

The kids reaaction in Fisher's article are quite interesting.

Exploration of the new era in human history marked by invention of the Internet

Introducing this work

Introducing this work | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

For the purposes of this Scoop.it site, the history of human interaction with information may be divided into 4 eras. The first (spoken) era ended with the invention of writing around 3000-4000 BC. The second era ended with the invention of the printing press in 1440. The third era ended, and the fourth began, with the invention of the Internet (depending how one defines its operational beginning) somewhere between 1969 and 1982. We now exist early, but decidedly, in the fourth era.

 

All readers may not agree with this interpretation of the history of information, especially with the division and numbering of the eras. That is not the main point. Rather, it is that humankind is presently existing in an era distinctly different from the one that preceded it -- that in fact, this new era is accompanied with, and characterized by, a new - and quite different - information landscape. This new Internet information landscape will challenge, disrupt, and overpower the print-oriented one that came before it. It will not completely obliterate that which preceded it, but it will render it to a subsidiary, rather than primary, level of influence.

 

Just as the printing press altered humanity's relationship with information, thereby resulting in massive restructuring of political, religious, economic, social, educational, cultural, scientific, and other realms of life; so too will the advance of digital technology occasion analogous transformations in the corresponding universe of present and future human activity.

 

This site will concern itself primarily with how K-20 education in the US, and the people who comprise its constituencies, may be affected by this transformative movement from one era to the next. All ideas considered here appear, to me at least, to impact the learning enterprise in some way. Accordingly, this work looks at the present and the future through a lens that is predominantly, but far from entirely, a digital one. -JL

 

Opinions expressed, scooped, or copied in this Scoop.it topic are my own, or a result of my own judgment, and should in no way be understood to reflect those of my employer.

Fault Lines: America's Most Segregating School District Borders

Fault Lines: America's Most Segregating School District Borders | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
A comprehensive, national analysis identifies the 50 most segregating school district borders in the country.

 

Description by EdBuild:

 

"Income-based segregation between school districts is rising. Today, high-poverty school districts enroll half of America's schoolchildren. Often these high poverty districts neighbor wealthier school systems where children have access to greater resources. Because property taxes play such an important role in school funding, affluent communities have an incentive to establish school district borders around their neighborhoods in order to ensure that the benefit of their wealth is reserved for their children alone. When the families with means isolate themselves in wealthy districts, low-income children are left behind and income segregation between school districts increases.

 

"This report presents the results of EdBuild’s analysis of the degree of income segregation across America's school district borders. In particular, it highlights trends among the 50 most segregating borders, and tells the stories of Detroit, MI; Birmingham, AL; Clairton, PA; Dayton, OH; and Balsz, AZ, whose borders with wealthy neighboring districts are the most segregated in the country."

that it’s important for young people to become economically independent and self-sufficient. But to do that, he argues, they shouldn’t all learn the same thing. Instead, they should be learning to be adaptable, to be innovative, to flow with change, to collaborate and other globalized skills that will apply to whatever area of work they are passionate about pursuing. An education can help expose students to different life paths and support them in finding their passions, while giving them the transferable skills to attack any problem.

Private prisons are shrouded in secrecy. I took a job as a guard to get inside—then things got crazy

Private prisons are shrouded in secrecy. I took a job as a guard to get inside—then things got crazy | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation's 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it's nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system. When prisons do let reporters in, it's usually for carefully managed tours and monitored interviews with inmates. Private prisons are especially secretive. Their records often aren't subject to public access laws; CCA has fought to defeat legislation that would make private prisons subject to the same disclosure rules as their public counterparts. And even if I could get uncensored information from private prison inmates, how would I verify their claims? I keep coming back to this question: Is there any other way to see what really happens inside a private prison?
Jim Lerman's insight:

This article has garnered tremendous amounts of media attention and is credited with influencing the U.S. government to cease its contracting out of prison operations to private firms.

The Subconscious Advantage of Whiteness in Hiring — Medium

The Subconscious Advantage of Whiteness in Hiring — Medium | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
In a recent article published by HBR despairingly titled, We Just Can’t Handle Diversity, it was revealed candidates are evaluated not solely on merit (as we often aspire and hope) but on race/ethnicity e.g.:
…The most common criteria for moving candidates from the middle to either the “yes” or the “no” pile were communication skills (referred to as “polish”), analysis of a sample business case, the math used to support that analysis, and cultural fit. But the interviewers weighed and judged those criteria differently depending on the race, ethnicity, or gender of the candidates.

Social Media Might Be Better for Teens Than We Thought :: New Learning Times

Social Media Might Be Better for Teens Than We Thought :: New Learning Times | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Studies have found that among American college students, empathy is on the decline. While some might think social media use is to blame, the case may not be cut and dry. In fact, several studies have shown the opposite to be true, including a recent one aimed at investigating the relationship between social media and empathy.

The researchers of this study administered two questionnaires one year apart to nearly 1,000 teens. The questions focused on how much time each teen spent on social media sites daily in addition to their levels of cognitive empathy (the ability to understand their peers’ feelings) and affective empathy (the ability to share their peers’ feelings).

Over the course of the year, they found that social media use increased and was positively correlated with both cognitive and affective empathy. In other words, the greater amount of time a teen spent on social media, the greater her levels of empathy. Teens who spent more time on Facebook, Twitter, or instant messaging apps improved their ability to share and understand the feelings of others over time.

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Learners’ use of digital tools and other technology to support their learning in our K-12 systems continues to be sporadic and often not observed despite the proliferation of use outside of school. Based on an analysis of three years of direct classroom observations in K-12 schools across 39 states and 11 countries, AdvancED found there are still relatively few classrooms in which the use of digital tools and technology is a regular part of a student’s school experience. In more than half (52.7 percent) of classrooms direct observations show no evidence students are using technology to gather, evaluate, or use information for learning; two-thirds of classrooms show no evidence of students using technology to solve problems, conduct research, or to work collaboratively.
 
Trained and certified observers conduct classroom observations as a part of AdvancED’s continuous improvement process which could include STEM Certification, accreditation, readiness and/or diagnostic review. Each observation lasts a minimum of 20 minutes during which observers use the learner-centric eProve™ Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool® (eleot®) to gather data focused on the activities learners are engaged in, their discussions and interactions, resources they are using for learning, their behaviors and dispositions during the learning process, etc. Observers rate each of the 30 eleot items on a four-point scale where 4 = Very Evident, 3 = Evident, 2 = Somewhat Evident and 1 = Not Observed

Víctor Xepiti Eme's curator insight, August 1, 12:13 AM
We need to ensure that teachers are provided support and training so that they know how to integrate students’ use of technology into their classrooms and create a student-centric learning environment. Until teachers and administrators
are convinced that technology can be a help not a hindrance to learning, the shift will not happen.
The teacher is the key to students successfully using technology as a learning and problem-solving tool. Students thrive when the teacher requires students to use technology not only for researching and writing but also to solve problems, work collaboratively and develop creativity
malek's curator insight, August 4, 9:52 AM

While numerous surveys suggest that the pervasive use of tablets, smartphones, laptops and digital education content in the classroom is expanding and changing the role of teachers, the AdvancED study found little evidence of technology being used by students to strengthen learning in classrooms today.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

The Arctic Suicides: It's Not The Dark That Kills You

The Arctic Suicides: It's Not The Dark That Kills You | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Two suicides in less than two weeks. To the people in these small towns, it felt like the beginning of something bad, something sickeningly familiar. Something that had happened too many times in too many towns in Greenland. A cluster of suicides, inexplicable and indiscriminate, tearing its way through the youngest generation in a country that has the highest known suicide rate in the world.
Jim Lerman's insight:

Such a haunting, sad, disturbing tale. And ones like it happening all around the world as indigenous cultures and their people continue to be crushed by "modernism". Does it have to be this way? Can you think of how technology can possibly help? Cell phones seem to be widely available among these youth, but of course language barriers pose a large difficulty.

Opening a good, new school is a huge challenge. It is complicated under the best of circumstances. It involves real estate, construction, financing, logistics and marketing – many tasks outside the experience of even veteran educators.

Unintended Consequences (Stanford Social Innovation Review)

Unintended Consequences (Stanford Social Innovation Review) | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"The experience taught the foundation’s investment team that the best intentions of an impact investor to steer technology innovation toward neglected markets and disadvantaged customers has the potential to harm a company’s success, if those markets are different from the company’s core market. The requirements that came with the Gates Foundation’s funding were not well aligned with the strategies needed to grow a nascent educational-technology company.

"It’s a cautionary tale for entrepreneurs and commercial investors looking to tap the growing pool of mission-driven investors. Such capital carries its own kinds of costs. Although an investment from a high-profile funder like the Gates Foundation may provide the perception of validation and cachet, fulfilling the required charitable commitments may, without clear alignment of objectives, pull a company away from commercial success."

Jim Lerman's insight:

Quite an interesting article, with many facets; not the least of which is the fact that at the very top, it says that it is "sponsored" (presumably meaning that Gates paid for its publication). What does this mean? What does Gates see as its advantage in disseminating this information? What does the publication view as its benefit in accepting this form of advertising? How does this business relationship between Gates and SSIR affect what is being reported and how?

 

Indeed, I found much of the language in the piece to be curiously ambiguous and difficult to interpret on first reading. It was only then that I noticed the "sponsored" notification. This ambiguity carries through even to the photograph accompanying the "article." The photo centers on a blonde, apparently white woman at graduation from community college (the caption points out specifically). The article deals largely with the failure of community colleges to adequately serve mostly students of color and their low rates (reportedly 25%) of graduation from 2-year schools. What purpose does inclusion of the photo have in this context?
