Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 29, 2013 8:14 PM

This is a pretty amazing infographic that looks at school suspensions of 9th grade stduents and how it impacts them over their high school career. It turnes "a student suspended even once in ninth grade is less likely to graduate from high school compared to his or her peers who never got in trouble." As well as this infographic the article links The Civil Rights Project and "Two first-of-their-kind reports shed light on the growing use of punitive disciplinary measures and provides research-based alternatives." (This 2nd quote if from the Civil Rights Project and can be found at http://civilrightsproject.ucla.edu/news/press-releases/2013-press-releases/out-of-school-and-off-track-reports-detail-disturbing-and-increased-use-of-suspensions.

"Recently I happed upon a cleverly created integration of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Pinterest from the folks at Teachbytes. And as if fated, the same week, I had a conversation with a fabulous theater arts and film teacher, Sarah Yurko, who had shared how she is using Pinterest with her secondary students. Fascinated by the boards and ideas she shared, I asked her to detail her thoughts so I could celebrate these app-tastic ideas with the greater global iClassroom."

There is a great series of maps in this NPR article that show that internal political divisions do not always line up with actual regional interactions.  The map of the United States shows the what money flows within regions that do not always follow state borders (see Wisconsin, Idaho and Pennsylvania).  The map of Great Britain shows the connections based on telephone calls.

A Monitoring and Evaluation Scheme for an ICT-Supported Education Program in Schools

More than 20 years after ICTs were introduced in schools, solid evidence of their impact on student attainment is still lacking. Reasons for this include the mismatch between the methods used to measure the effects and the type of learning promoted, the absence of information regarding the specific types of ICT used, and the scarce attention paid to the monitoring and evaluation of ICT for Education (ICT4E) programs.
