Mapping student debt: a new liability on the nation’s balance sheet

Mapping student debt: a new liability on the nation’s balance sheet | Visual Deisgn | Scoop.it
More than 42 million Americans owe a total of $1.1 trillion in student debt, yet we don’t know much about it. We’re changing that. Using zip code-level Experian data on student debt, we’re mapping how borrowing for college affects the nation, your city, and even your neighborhood.

R Sutton's curator insight, May 20, 2015 7:22 PM

I am too often seeing reference to modern learning environments as if they are the critical key to improving learning. In my opinion they are not. It is the extent to which we can enable learners to take control (student efficacy) and the degree to which we can act as coaches/mentors and fellow learners that we will create improvement. We must be prepared to step outside the norm, but we have to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater, and we must be careful to ensure that our practice is evidence informed. Teaching as Inquiry is critical to improvement.

Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

inspiration4kidz's curator insight, February 2, 2015 10:02 PM

Are we teaching kids these skills in a system designed for the 20th century?

The only permanence is impermanence. That is irrefutable fact.

Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world) in the coming year.

Alan Ovens's curator insight, May 17, 2014 5:33 PM

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

The Periodic Table of Elements Scaled to Show The Elements’ Actual Abundance on Earth

The Periodic Table of Elements Scaled to Show The Elements’ Actual Abundance on Earth | Visual Deisgn | Scoop.it
“When you learned about The Periodic Table of Elements in high school, it probably didn’t look like this. Above, we have a different way of visualizing the elements. Created by Professor William F. Sheehan at Santa Clara University in 1970, this chart takes the elements (usually shown like this) and scales them relative to their abundance on the Earth’s surface.”

Worst practice in ICT use in education

Worst practice in ICT use in education | Visual Deisgn | Scoop.it
“In business and in international development circles, much is made about the potential for 'learning from best practice'. Considerations of the use of educational technologies offer no exception to this impulse. That said, 'best practice' in the education sector is often a rather elusive concept (at best! some informed observers would say it is actually dangerous). The term 'good practice' may be more useful, for in many (if not most) cases and places, learning from and adapting 'good' practices”
