Elementary Education

The main responsibility of elementary education teachers is to teach students subjects like maths, language and social studies.

 

Elementary education teachers are involved in planning, evaluating and assigning lessons. They are also involved in preparing the students for various tests, exams and their grading. They are responsible for maintaining discipline in the classroom. Elementary education teachers also have to communicate with the parents of the students about the student's progress.

Expecting More From Higher Education-workforce-ready skills?

Expecting More From Higher Education-workforce-ready skills? | Education | Scoop.it
We have a generation of college graduates at risk and we need solutions now. No other entities or organizations in the country are better suited or better equipped to deal with this insidious problem than our revered institutions of higher education.

 

With the national unemployment rate lingering well above 7 percent for the last four and one-half years, many are wondering if high unemployment is now the "new norm" in the United States. And if this is the case, should we expect more from our institutions of higher education?

 

===> Should we be asking them to do a better job of preparing graduates with specialized training and workforce-ready skills? <===

This article raises some very interesting issues.
Chelsie DeBus's curator insight, May 4, 2014 12:44 PM

This article is talking about that unemployment might be the "new  norm". If that is true are we going to want more from our colleges? Hopefully in years to come the "new norm" will be higher education for the public. This article relates to government and law because this is happening in the United States Right now and we are need of and are searching for solutions to this problem.

The race for education tech heats up - Fortune Tech

The race for education tech heats up - Fortune Tech | Education | Scoop.it
The education industry's top firms are rushing to secure their future, even if it means partnering with a startup that it would have acquired outright in the past. The latest deal between Pearson and startup Knewton is a case in point.

 

"Pearson's close to 9 million college-age digital students will work within Knewton's system, creating a massive amount of coveted data on how student learn online. Pearson will get semi-exclusive access to Knewton's adaptive learning technology."

 

"Pearson is certainly no stranger to buying the competition. It has completed six acquisitions this year so far, according to investment banking firm Berkery Noyes."

Hmm, nothing that seems game-changing. Most of it is just spooky.

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Education | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.
