Poor Students Struggle as Class Plays a Greater Role in Success

Poor Students Struggle as Class Plays a Greater Role in Success | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The story of three friends from Galveston, Tex., seems less a tribute to upward mobility than a study of obstacles in an age of economic inequality.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Racing to the Top and Testing  in order to hold behind those that are behind  (NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND)  leaves many students with other personal struggles extremely challenged to move forward into that upward mobility. Class and poverty does not figure into these top down challenges being placed on these students.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, January 3, 2013 6:30 AM

This story explains a disturbing trend I've witnessed. Upward mobility is not yet impossible, but the climb from poverty is far more difficult than is generally acknowledge.

Crash Course is launching a series all about media literacy - boing boing | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
One of my favorite things on the internet is Crash Course, a free, high-quality educational YouTube channel that offers “crash courses” on science, math, history, literature, philosophy, and so much more. The channel’s latest project is a 12-week miniseries all about media literacy. Hosted by Jay Smooth, the series aims to give viewers “the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act using all forms of communication.” It’s hard to think of a more relevant tool to have in our current political and cultural climate. The series officially launches next, but here’s a preview video of everything it’s going to cover:

6 Tips To Apply Connectivism In Online Training | InfoPro Learning

6 Tips To Apply Connectivism In Online Training | InfoPro Learning | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
George Siemens and Stephen Downes are the main proponents of the Connectivism Theory, which suggests that online networks and resources play a vital role in the learning experience. It also delves into the significance of social interactions and their impact on our behaviors and cognitions in a virtual context. According to Siemens and Downes, learning involves a series of nodes and connections. The nodes represent information, emotions, learning materials, and other essential components. An online learner must be able to link these individual nodes to expand or enhance their network.

If the Russian psychologist Ivan Pavlov were alive today, what would he say about smartphones? He might not think of them as phones at all, but instead as remarkable tools for understanding how technology can manipulate our brains.

Pavlov’s own findings — from experiments he did more than a century ago, involving food, buzzers and slobbering dogs — offer key insights into why our phones have become almost an extension of our bodies, modern researchers say. The findings also provide clues to how we can break our dependence.

One of the major criticisms of this method though is that a dull unengaging content doesn't suddenly become engaging because it's on a video on the web, so how do we get students to engage with the content and make sure they watch it in a challenging and interactive way.

Vialogues is a useful tool for attempting to do this (though dull content will always be dull) because it enables you to create interaction around the video that actually gets students to think about and engage with the content.

How a NYC Micro-School Is Rethinking Classrooms and Tests — and Using Projects to Inspire Learning | The 74

How a NYC Micro-School Is Rethinking Classrooms and Tests — and Using Projects to Inspire Learning | The 74 | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"The first thing you notice about Portfolio School — a new micro-school in downtown New York City that’s preparing to welcome its first class of students in a couple weeks — is its floor plan. Inside this Tribeca outpost, there are no long corridors lined with water fountains or bulletin boards, no enclosed classrooms with fixed rows of desks facing chalkboards.

 

"Instead, this 2,500-square-foot site is a single sprawling room; an open space that has the look and feel of a loft apartment. And it’s this space that will serve as the backdrop for one of the city’s newest education experiments — a private school built around project-based learning, mixed-age classes, lessons that cut across subject areas and no homework.

"Drawing from the increasingly popular micro-school trend, in which fewer students are placed in each class to foster individualized instruction, the inaugural class at Portfolio School will consist of only eight kids, students ranging in age between 5 and 9. The mission for year one: Hone and refine a more holistic classroom approach that breaks down a rigid structure that some say has limited innovation in public education. “This will be an environment where creativity and uncertainty are embraced,” says Shira Leibowitz, Portfolio’s Lower School Director."

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom - The Tech Edvocate

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom - The Tech Edvocate | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

only a third of the nation's school children read at grade level

only a third of the nation's school children read at grade level | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Two thirds of the nation's school children struggle with reading. Neuroscientist Mark Seidenberg says teachers need a better understanding of what science knows about how kids learn to read.

 


only a third of the nation's school children read at grade level. The reasons are numerous, but one that Seidenberg cites over and over again is this: The way kids are taught to read in school is disconnected from the latest research, namely how language and speech actually develop in a child's brain.


Seidenberg is a cognitive scientist and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In his latest book, Language at the Speed of Sight, he points out that the "science of reading" can be a difficult concept for educators to grasp. He says it requires some basic understanding of brain research and the "mechanics" of reading, or what is often referred to as phonics.
