We’re living in a very Liquid World

We’re living in a very Liquid World | Education in a Multicultural Society | Scoop.it

We are now living in a networked world. This was barely visible 20 years ago. It was hardly imaginary 40 years ago. It’s now our reality, and it scares people so much that many are flocking to populists and demagogues for reassurance. But tribal values are not democratic values. Here are just a couple of points to counter 2/3 of my fellow Canadians, who likely will not be swayed by the facts.

10% of All Students Attend Private Schools, Which Are Becoming More Elite

10% of All Students Attend Private Schools, Which Are Becoming More Elite | Education in a Multicultural Society | Scoop.it
10 percent of school-aged children in the United States attend a private school. That number has been largely the same for  decades. What has changed is the demographic makeup of that 10 percent—and that’s in part because of the loss of many Catholic schools, which have historically sought to enroll lower-income families by keeping tuition low and providing financial aid.

So, the writer suggests that Dunbar's Number suggests that modern governments and corporations are too large and complicated for the average mind to grasp and control, thus they are unmanageable.  I would think that parallels the idea that large governments and corporations are inhuman to boot. :) -Lon

Our world is changing – but not as rapidly as people think

Our world is changing – but not as rapidly as people think | Education in a Multicultural Society | Scoop.it

What will the future of business be like? I know, it’s a colossal question. And one that many people have tried to answer before me. Nevertheless, it’s the question I’ve set out to tackle in a new book project based on an interview relay.

“History never repeats itself but it often rhymes,” Mark Twain supposedly said. And while it might not be a very accurate description, it is true that we can – and should – use the past to inform the future.

For that reason, I started my project by interviewing a trio of business historians. First I spoke to Chris McKenna of Oxford University’s Saïd Business School. Later I had conversations with both Nitin Nohria, the Dean at Harvard Business School, and Professor of Business History Geoffrey G Jones, also at Harvard Business School.

While these three scholars supplied very different perspectives, they all agreed on one thing: that the world is not changing as rapidly as people think.

Human Rights Theory and Philosophy | CurtinX

Human Rights Theory and Philosophy | CurtinX | Education in a Multicultural Society | Scoop.it
The course commences through exploring the development of the conventional understanding of universal human rights and then moves to critiquing this concept from cultural relativist, postmodern, postcolonial and feminist perspectives. It also examines understandings of human rights from a range of cultural and religious perspectives as well as other contemporary rights issues.

Developing an awareness of contemporary issues in human rights is important in professions such as education, health, law, social work and development work, both in the public and private sector. You can also benefit from human rights knowledge in a voluntary capacity, advocating social justice, peace or building a sustainable future.

This course is part of the CurtinX Human Rights MicroMasters program.

If you take the verified certificate pathway for the three human rights courses you will qualify for the MicroMasters credential.

The MicroMasters credential is an achievement in itself, but if you want to study further, you can use it towards studying a Master of Human Rights at Curtin.

Today marks what would have been Anne Frank’s 89th birthday. As a teenager, she dreamt of becoming a journalist or writer—and while those dreams were tragically cut short, she succeeded in her ambitions not “to have lived in vain” and “to go on living” after her death through the pages of The Diary of a Young Girl. And her legacy can reach people in a brand-new way with Anne Frank House VR, now available on Rift, Oculus Go, and Gear VR.

In the Aftermath of Katrina-Inspired School Reforms, Report Shows New Orleans Students Are Now More Likely to Attend — and Graduate From — College | The 74 | Education in a Multicultural Society | Scoop.it

Sweeping education reforms introduced in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina have dramatically lifted students’ chances of finishing high school and entering college, according to a new policy brief released this week by the Education Research Alliance for New Orleans. Even more striking, the new policies appear to have narrowed large gaps in educational attainment between advantaged and disadvantaged students.
