Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty

Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty | Education | Scoop.it
Education is linked to the age at which women marry and have children. In sub-Saharan Africa and in South and West Asia, child marriage affects one in eight girls; one in seven gives birth by the age of 17.

 

Providing girls with a quality education also equips them with the confidence to confront people in power and challenge the inequalities that still exist for girls and women worldwide. Consider Mariam Khalique, a teacher in Pakistan who has used education to build her female students’ confidence and to encourage them to stand up for their rights.

 

One of her pupils was the young education activist Malala Yousafzai, whose global advocacy work is proof of the transformative power of quality schooling.

I believe it is important for women to have just as good of an education as men because obviously we are half the population and it would greatly increase the standard of living.

One of the biggest moral imperatives of our times - ensure the education of every girl on the planet.. the rewards are boundless.

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | Education | Scoop.it

Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age? 

 

Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.

 

Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.

I also think there is no limit to using technology in the classroom. I think every student learns differently and integrating technology in the classroom can help students find new means of studying that works well for them. I agree that teaching students to test them all the the same level is not the way to go about it. I think that it is "destroying our youth" and causing them to be high anxiety.

Owning the experience of discovery, especially as it pertains to learning about a situation or topic, results in a deeper understanding of the situation.

Leaning towards the digital age is very important for education, because students have recently begun to center their lives around such devices like iPads, computers, and phones. This article explains the slow advances towards the use of computers and other devices that not only make our lives easier through communication, but can also do so very well through education.

What is education? Education is a process of learning new skills, knowledge and values. Education starts when we are still a baby in our mothers' womb. Education never ends; it follows us until our very last breathe.

9 Steps To Scaffold Learning For Improved Understanding - TeachThought

9 Steps To Scaffold Learning For Improved Understanding - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

"Scaffolding is a critical teaching strategy that can support students struggling with a concept, or those that have mastered it.

 

In short, to “scaffold” something is a metaphor that describes the process of supporting students so that they can achieve learning goals in lieu of content deficiencies.

 

Or, in short, helping students succeed."

6 Essential R's to Reduce School-Wide Bullying - Dr. Michele Borba - Edutopia | Education | Scoop.it

"The best way to reduce bullying is not with a one-time assembly or a poster campaign, but with homegrown, data-driven, sustained efforts by a caring, committed staff -- a model I call the six R's, a blueprint for effective bullying prevention. I've shared this model with hundreds of educators worldwide, and on U.S. Army bases. Each "R" is crucial in creating what our students deserve -- a safe, caring learning environment that breeds acceptance and respect. "

30 Of The Best Apps For Group Project-Based Learning - TeachThought

30 Of The Best Apps For Group Project-Based Learning - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

"Project-based learning is a matter of identifying needs and opportunities (using an app like flipboard), gathering potential resources (using an app like pinterest), collecting notes and artifacts (with an app like Evernote), concept-mapping potential scale or angles for the project (using an app like simplemind), assigning roles (with an appp like Trello), scheduling deadlines (with apps like Google Calendar), and sharing it all (with apps like OneDrive or Google Drive).

 

With that in mind, below are 30 of the best apps for getting this kind of work done in the classroom, with an emphasis on group project-based learning apps for both Android and iPad (and even a few for plain old browsers)."

Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights |

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

What is Education 3.0

Education 3.0

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Education 3.0 describes a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century. The work of Prof. James G.

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]
