Media&Multiculturalism_Fall 2017's curator insight, November 4, 2:27 PM
This article talks about studies that show that people have trouble changing their minds about topics even when confronted with facts that their opinions or beliefs are wrong. It also mentions that people have a tendency to reject things that do not align with their views and accept things that do. I think this article is very relevant in today's day and age of Donald Trump. Think back to the problems that faced Facebook during the election campaigns; Facebook got a lot of heat for tailoring their ads towards people's predetermined views (that Facebook knew based on data collection of peoples' clicks, likes, and reposts). There was outrage that by curating ads and such to people's held opinions, people were never able to see the other sides of issues and were constantly reading things that reinforced their views. This article makes me wonder if it would have even mattered if Facebook had shown all its users variety in campaign news, because according to this article, people would have ignored or not believed articles or news that conflicted with what they thought to be true. This also might be one reason why this country is so divided right now; even when people are shown facts that challenge their beliefs, they cling almost tighter to their own pre-conceived notions. The study suggests that reason fails us today because the environment had changed faster than natural selection. This means that in a world where fake news, fake studies, and fake stories all over Twitter, it is almost too hard to sift through it all and create the right perception of everything. Instead of trying to reason, it is easier for people to stick with what they feel is the vest answer to something. It will be curious to see how this difficulty in accepting new facts and truths will evolve in this country, especially in the rest of Donald Trump's presidency.

Technology is transforming what happens when a child goes to school

Technology is transforming what happens when a child goes to school | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Recent studies show that software which imitates the responsive role of a tutor rather than just cranking out questions and answers can indeed accelerate children’s learning. The second reason is the experience of a growing number of schools, like KLS, which are not just bolting edtech onto the existing way of doing things but using the new software to change how pupils and teachers spend their time. Both, it seems, get more productive. For many decades educational innovators have happily anticipated the end of “factory model”, whereby children of the same age learn from the same teacher in broadly the same way, yet the model endures. Now, at least in some places, its days seem numbered.

Although this article is a reaction to the recent Vegas shootings, one theory presented is that as the government and bureaucracy expand, people lose the ability to act to improve their position.  In the case of school shootings, could the lengenthening of adolescent, keeping children dependent longer, be feeding the feeling of powerlessness.that this theory posits is a cause of this school violence?  -Lon
