Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty

Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty | Education and Technology | 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.

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

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

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.

Great basic info for newbies (much like myself).  All you need to get those digital feet wet.

Juana Hajek's curator insight, April 25, 2014 12:17 AM

A robust education using technology tools will help students meet all of the standards which were written by the International Society for Technology in Education.  The use of iPads in the classroom is one way this can be achieved.

Behavior Management ≠ Classroom Management

Behavior Management ≠ Classroom Management | Education and Technology | Scoop.it
"The reality of education is that people learn from people they love," says New York Times columnist David Brooks in a recent National Public Radio interview discussing his new book, The Social Animal. "We've spent all this time with big schools, small schools," Brooks later says. "But what really matters is how good people are at relating to one another." How cool is that?! A respected journalist and bestselling author--and a non-educator at that--drawing attention to an often-overlooked hallmark of great teachers: strong relationships with their students. At the same time, if we as educators react to Mr. Brooks'...

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | Education and Technology | 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. 

Nick Sigrist's curator insight, May 12, 2014 9:19 AM

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.
