Female students, for example, are poorly represented in science, technology, engineering, and math courses offered online, just as they are scarce in STEM classes conducted in physical classrooms. Demographic analyses of the students enrolled in much-hyped “massive open online courses” show the depth of the gender gap. Circuits and Electronics, the first MOOC developed by the online consortium of universities known as edX, had a student body that was 12 percent female, according to a study published in 2013. Another analysis, posted on the MOOC company Coursera’s blog earlier this year, found that female enrollment in the company’s courses was lowest—about 20 percent—in subjects like computer science, engineering, and mathematics.

These dismally low numbers provide a reminder that “access” to education is more complicated than simply throwing open the digital doors to whoever wants to sign up. So how can we turn the mere availability of online instruction in STEM into true access for female students?

ProQuest Document View - Exploring the Adolescent Hispanic Dropout Rate: A Qualitative Case Study

The Hispanic dropout rate has been an area of concern in education for over 3 decades in the United States. As the population increases, as does the percentage of Hispanic teens that do not complete high school. This qualitative case study focused on the experiences of high school classroom teachers who have worked with Hispanic students. The purpose of this study was to explore participants' perceptions about the Hispanic student attrition rate and determine ways in which it can be improved. The conceptual framework included Erickson's theory of adolescent development and Ogbu's work surrounding the phenomena of Hispanic students' academic struggles in the United States. The primary research question addressed teachers' perceptions about problems Hispanic students face and how those problems effect students' decision to drop out. Employing a qualitative case study design, data were collected through in-depth interviews with 10 secondary school teachers. Transcripts were analyzed using inductive analysis and line by line axial and theoretical coding procedures. Findings revealed 4 major themes: role of the teacher, dysfunctional home life, language barrier, and peer pressure. A recommendation is that district teachers should become more knowledgeable and experienced with the Hispanic culture. Introducing a professional development model can train teachers in the district to properly work with students who are struggling through their transition into high school. The findings could have implications for positive social change when teachers are better prepared to work with at-risk Hispanic students, which may lead to lower attrition rates and higher retention rates.

Miradas sobre la educación en Iberoamericana 2014. Avances en las Metas Educativas 2021

Miradas sobre la educación en Iberoamericana 2014. Avances en las Metas Educativas 2021 | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

El informe Miradas Educativas 2014 vuelve a dedicarse de forma íntegra a actualizar los datos de las distintas metas e indicadores hasta el año 2012, y en algunos casos hasta 2013. Ha supuesto un enorme esfuerzo de los institutos y las direcciones de evaluación de prácticamente todos los países, lo que permite ofrecer un panorama amplio e integral, aunque en ocasiones incompleto, de la situación de la educación en Iberoamérica.

Decimos en primer lugar que la fotografía es amplia e integral porque las metas educativas aprobadas por los Ministros de Educación y los Jefes de Estado y de Gobierno en 2010 así lo manifiestan. La información obtenida no se reduce a los datos cuantitativos referidos a la escolarización, al número de docentes, a la alfabetización de las personas jóvenes y adultas, a los alumnos que terminan o abandonan un determinado nivel educativo, a los resultados alcanzados en alguna de las pruebas internacionales realizadas en los últimos años o a la financiación de la enseñanza. Las metas educativas apuntan también a otros factores también ligados a la calidad y a la equidad educativa: los proyectos integrales, la lectura, las bibliotecas escolares, el papel de la educación artística o de las tic en la educación, la atención educativa a los alumnos de las poblaciones indígenas o afrodescendientes, la inclusión de las personas con necesidades educativas especiales y la evaluación de las escuelas, por citar algunos de los más relevantes.
