The Importance of Student Privacy in Big Data - DML Central | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
I’ve written in the past about understanding the Terms of sites you are asking students to use and been interviewed about the implications of social media in classes. This year, one of the things I want to focus on is bringing those two things together. It is important that we don’t just know the terms we are asking our students to work under when we enforce the use of social media or other proprietary digital platforms for course work, it is important we know the implications and the devastating effects these tools and platforms might have in the future for our students.

All too often in many countries, students do not get the education they must have to prosper in the twenty-first century, and countries are not finding adequate numbers of the skilled workers they need to compete. But innovative education technologies are beginning to show potential in helping close the twenty-first-century skill gap.

New Cyberbullying Content on Revamped StopBullying.gov | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
With constantly evolving and new technologies and apps, people are spending a lot of time online and on smartphones. Texting, apps, and social media have become a primary way to communicate. While we can now connect more quickly and easily, if messages are ill intended and hurtful, the virtual abuse may prove relentless and difficult to address. In person, there are usually clear avenues to help – a parent, a teacher, and the police. But online, each platform and every state may have different governing rules and laws.

Survey: Teachers' mental health declining amid job stress

Survey: Teachers' mental health declining amid job stress | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
A long list of anxieties — around school budget cuts, bullying, coarse political discourse and the shaky status of immigrant students — is taking a toll on teachers, a new survey shows, with more educators now saying their mental health is suffering than just two years earlier.

More than half of the educators point out their mental health is an issue: 58% said their mental health was “not good” for seven or more of the previous 30 days. A similar survey in 2015 found just 34% of respondents felt the same.

The findings are being released Monday by the American Federation of Teachers  and the Badass Teachers Association,   a national grass-roots organization focused on social justice.

Randi Weingarten, president of the teachers' federation, said that over the past few years, teachers have actually swapped one kind of stress — an intense national focus on standardized skills tests — for another.

After President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act in 2015, Weingarten said, many observers believed that educator stress would ease. "You would have expected the numbers to go down, not up,” she said.


But stress over the coarseness of our political debate, she said, has become a big dilemma for schools, she said. 

“This notion that being coarse and tough and enabling hate is OK is highly, highly, highly disruptive and problematic in schools and goes completely against what parents and teachers know is absolutely important for kids, which is a safe and welcoming environment,” Weingarten said in an interview. 

The survey of nearly 5,000 educators, most of them responding online, found that the vast majority — 86% — did not feel respected by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who has made expanding private- and charter-school choice a centerpiece of her career.

Weingarten said the negative findings on DeVos, a Michigan billionaire and Republican mega-donor who has championed school choice, are telling. 

"People get what she’s doing — and she’s doing the same thing nationally as she tried to do in Michigan ... which is to completely disrupt public schooling, find ways to undermine it, defund it, destabilize it, at the same time actively promoting private alternatives, even though the private alternatives don’t have a good track record," she said.

Weingarten also criticized DeVos for not stepping in more forcefully, as past administrations have done, to help educators after recent natural and man-made disasters.

“That has never happened with this administration: Not after Charlottesville, not after the hurricanes, not after the fires, not after Las Vegas. It has never happened (with DeVos). Instead, she spends the time sitting with (Republican pollster) Frank Luntz trying to figure out how to sell vouchers.”

The Education Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the findings, which relied on a random sample of 830 members the teachers' federation as well as educators in two New York school districts. More than 4,000 other educators responded to a public version of the survey online. 

The findings show that 61% of educators, as well as school staff, say their work “always” or “often” stressful. 

They also don't appear to get much sleep: Only one in five (18%) get eight or more hours of sleep per night. The vast majority (78%) manage five to seven hours a night.

The new survey follows an unrelated one from UCLA last week that found 51.4% of teachers reported more students experiencing “high levels of stress and anxiety” than in previous years.

Este artículo habla de cómo la tecnología se ha convertido en un motivo de ansiedad en las familias. Muchos padres la ven como una amenaza y están preocupados porque ven en ella un instrumento que impide que los niños aprendan a relacionarse con personas reales. Estos temores están privando a los adultos de ver las ventajas que la tecnología podía traer a sus hijos (siempre de manera controlada).

Selling Social-emotional Learning - DML Central

Selling Social-emotional Learning - DML Central | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Social-emotional learning has become a significant education policy priority and a key focus for education technology development and investment. The core idea behind social-emotional learning (SEL) approaches is that the “non-cognitive” aspects of learning are fundamentally linked to academic progress. Improving SEL skills is, therefore, seen as an important prerequisite for raising attainment. This simple idea has now begun to catalyze an outpouring of policy lobbying, ed-tech developments, and, importantly, new models of financial investment and profit-making. SEL, in other words, is being sold as a policy solution to long-standing educational problems, a potentially lucrative ed-tech market, and a rich commercial opportunity for investors.

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

When good, well-intentioned ideas result in high profit potential, what started out with clarity can become quite muddy.

With teen mental health deteriorating over five years, there's a likely culprit

With teen mental health deteriorating over five years, there's a likely culprit | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

"Around 2012, something started going wrong in the lives of teens.

"In just the five years between 2010 and 2015, the number of U.S. teens who felt useless and joyless – classic symptoms of depression – surged 33 percent in large national surveys. Teen suicide attempts increased 23 percent. Even more troubling, the number of 13- to 18-year-olds who committed suicide jumped 31 percent.

"In a new paper published in Clinical Psychological Science, my colleagues and I found that the increases in depression, suicide attempts and suicide appeared among teens from every background – more privileged and less privileged, across all races and ethnicities and in every region of the country. All told, our analysis found that the generation of teens I call “iGen” – those born after 1995 – is much more likely to experience mental health issues than their millennial predecessors.

"However, according to the Pew Research Center, smartphone ownership crossed the 50 percent threshold in late 2012 – right when teen depression and suicide began to increase. By 2015, 73 percent of teens had access to a smartphone.

"Not only did smartphone use and depression increase in tandem, but time spent online was linked to mental health issues across two different data sets. We found that teens who spent five or more hours a day online were 71 percent more likely than those who spent only one hour a day to have at least one suicide risk factor (depression, thinking about suicide, making a suicide plan or attempting suicide). Overall, suicide risk factors rose significantly after two or more hours a day of time online."
