Introducing this work

Introducing this work | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

For the purposes of this site, the history of human interaction with information may be divided into 4 eras. The first (spoken) era ended with the invention of writing around 3000-4000 BC. The second era ended with the invention of the printing press in 1440. The third era ended, and the fourth began, with the invention of the Internet (depending how one defines its operational beginning) somewhere between 1969 and 1982. We now exist early, but decidedly, in the fourth era.

 

All readers may not agree with this interpretation of the history of information, especially with the division and numbering of the eras. That is not the main point. Rather, it is that humankind presently exists in an era distinctly different from the one that preceded it -- that in fact, this new era is accompanied with, and characterized by, a new - and quite different - information landscape. This new Internet information landscape will challenge, disrupt, and overpower the print-oriented one that came before it. It will not completely obliterate that which preceded it, but it will render it to a subsidiary, rather than primary, level of influence.

 

Just as the printing press altered humanity's relationship with information, thereby resulting in massive restructuring of political, religious, economic, social, educational, cultural, scientific, and other realms of life; so too will the advance of digital technology occasion analogous transformations in the corresponding universe of present and future human activity.

 

This site will concern itself primarily with how K-20 education in the US, and the people who comprise its constituencies, may be affected by this transformative movement from one era to the next. All ideas considered here appear, to me at least, to impact the learning enterprise in some way. Accordingly, this work looks at the present and the future through a lens that is predominantly, but far from entirely, a digital one. -JL

Make Space for Project Based Learning in the New School Year :: Buck Institute | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Project Based Learning will be essential in this moment, now more than ever."

 

"Schools and districts around the country are considering how to proceed with curriculum, instruction, and assessment as schools “open” this fall. In their planning, they should be making space and time for PBL.

 

"As PBLWorks CEO Bob Lenz says in his post, This Teachable Moment: How PBL Can Shift the Future of Education, “PBL is truly a means of keeping kids engaged in learning and growing now, and a key to fostering the creativity, initiative, and resilience they’ll need to thrive in our rapidly changing world.” 

 

"With this mindset and aspiration in mind, schools and districts should consider the following five steps, not necessarily in this exact order, to ensure PBL is part of their solution to the challenges they face."

Teaching Students to Avoid Plagiarism :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez

Teaching Students to Avoid Plagiarism :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

In my own experience as a teacher and a parent, I have seen acts of plagiarism that I truly believe were rooted in ignorance.

"Take my 5th-grade daughter, for instance. A few months ago, she and her best friend were collaborating on a Google Slides presentation about a Native American tribe. Reading over it as she worked, I found sentence after sentence written in language she never could have come up with. When I asked her where she got the information, she told me point blank that she copied and pasted it from a website. It took me forever to explain why that was wrong and what she needed to do instead. She seriously had no idea. She wasn’t trying to cheat. Eventually, I convinced her that she really, really needed to revise, and even though she did, I could tell she was mostly humoring me.

"Okay, that’s 5th grade, you say. Surely it gets better as students get older?

"Marginally. Let’s take a look at college undergrads. In two separate studies, undergraduates were asked to identify incidences of plagiarism. In both, students’ ability to correctly label plagiarism could best be described as limited (Dawson & Overfield, 2006; Marshall & Garry, 2005). In other words, a significant number of students have an incomplete understanding of what plagiarism actually is. And if they don’t always know when they’re doing it, it’s going to be pretty hard to get them to stop.

"To be clear, I’m not arguing that all students who plagiarize are innocent. I’ve had students whose attempts at passing off someone else’s work as their own were so blatant, I took it as a personal insult. But I do believe we can cut way back on less deliberate instances of plagiarism by teaching students the skills to avoid it."

Historically Responsive Literacy: A More Complete Education for All Students :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez

Historically Responsive Literacy: A More Complete Education for All Students :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"For years teachers have been looking for ways to improve the academic performance of all students, especially students of color and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. While some of these efforts have been successful, many more have had lackluster results. 

 

"In the past, we’ve explored different approaches teachers can take to do a better job of reaching all students: interviews with Dena SimmonsZaretta HammondPedro Noguera, and Hedreich Nichols, to name a few. In these conversations, we looked at more effective ways of relating to students, strategies for working toward equity outside the classroom, and instructional methods that are more culturally responsive.

 

"This post continues that work with a fresh response to the question of how to better serve diverse students. It’s a framework that deals directly with the curriculum side of things, the standards, the actual content we teach in our classrooms. The framework is called Historically Responsive Literacy, and it was developed by Dr. Gholdy Muhammad, a professor, a former middle school educator, and the author of the book Cultivating Genius: An Equity Framework for Culturally and Historically Responsive Literacy, where she makes the case for this framework."

Learning as We Go: Principles for Effective Assessment During the COVID-19 Pandemic | Center on Reinventing Public Education

Learning as We Go: Principles for Effective Assessment During the COVID-19 Pandemic | Center on Reinventing Public Education | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Description by Stephen Downes:

 

"This report (8 page PDF) offers a set of principles intended to inform the practice of assessment in the upcoming pandemic-complicated school year. Many of these recommendations would be suitable in any year, for example, 'do no harm' and 'engage parents as parters' (to which I always want to add, 'where possible', since parental engagement cannot be taken for granted for many students). Others would make good policy, like " Don’t use assessments for accountability unless they were designed and validated for that purpose." And finally, there is good advice about focusing on student's physical and emotional well-being. Overall, I think, the message is that assessment in this coming year will be secondary to other priorities. Maybe it should always be secondary. See also The Evidence Project."

Schools want to hire more counselors amid budget woes :: ALISON YIN :: EDSOURCE

Schools want to hire more counselors amid budget woes :: ALISON YIN :: EDSOURCE | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"The pandemic, school closures and economic downturn will leave thousands of students needing mental health services this fall, counselors say.

 

"With students facing ever-growing levels of depression and anxiety as the pandemic wears on, nearly everyone agrees that school districts need to expand their mental health services.

"But budget uncertainties have stymied school districts’ efforts to hire more counselors and psychologists, leaving mental health advocates worried that thousands of students in California won’t receive the help they need.

“Basically, nearly every student in California has been traumatized,” said Melanee Cottrill, executive director of the California Association of School Psychologists. “We expect to see a huge demand when school reopens, and we are very concerned about meeting the needs of students.”

"State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond and Linda Darling-Hammond, president of the State Board of Education, have implored school districts to hire more counselors, psychologists and social workers — not just to help students through the pandemic but as a counterweight to reducing school police."

ChildArt - Art for Health

ChildArt - Art for Health | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"We never dreamed we’d wear masks every day, wash our hands thoroughly at each turn, or avoid meeting our friends instead of greeting them. These are surreal times, when the unimaginable becomes the daily reality. No hugs or handshakes. No playdates or outings. Zoom birthday parties. Will schools reopen this fall? What will I do if I test positive? These are heavy questions for anyone to carry. How can that weight be lessened in a world full of question but few answers? One pathway is art! Everyone has creativity inside of them and expressing that is often a cathartic experience. Not only does partaking in the arts allow us to explore our own emotions and minds, but it also has been proven to have a positive impact on our mental and physical health.

 

"Sharing and exploring art with others is a great way to create community and understanding, and luckily during this time of limited social interaction, art is something we can all create and enjoy together, while maintaining our own health and safety. Whether it’s in the stories you tell, the interactions you have with others, your night - time doodle, or in your curiosity for the world around you, creativity flows freely. Your sense of optimism will bring that creativity out in everyone else. You have to use all available tools to keep yourself busy learning every day and staying hopeful and inspired."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Nicely done. Good ideas for using the arts with young people to help guide us through these difficult times.

Our 2020-21 Student Contest Calendar - The New York Times

Our 2020-21 Student Contest Calendar - The New York Times | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Tens of thousands of students from around the world participate in our contests each year, creating podcasts, writing editorials, telling stories, documenting their lives, and responding to the news.

Teachers tell us they appreciate how these contests invite students to compose for an “authentic audience” and motivate them to produce their best work. Students tell us they like the variety of ways they can express themselves — and the confidence boost when their writing and art are recognized. For us, these contests offer more formal opportunities to do what we try to do every day: show students that their voices and ideas matter.

Almost all of our usual annual contests are back this year, but here is what’s new for 2020-21:

Emotional Design in Digital Media for Learning :: Jan L. Plass

Emotional Design in Digital Media for Learning :: Jan L. Plass | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"More and more evidence still points to something that practitioners in education have known for millennia: human learning and performance cannot be simply described from a cognitive or even sociocultural perspective alone. In order to fully understand how we process the world around us, we need to consider our affective responses to the information we perceive. This is especially important for the designers of digital educational materials, as these materials offer many important opportunities to incorporate emotional considerations. However, few if any theories of learning with media consider emotions, and if they do, they do so only in very limited ways. In this chapter, we first review definitions of key terms related to emotion and learning, and summarize research on emotional design in digital media for learning. We then present a theoretical framework of learning from digital media that emphasizes the integration of emotional and cognitive processing and of related design factors, and describe a resulting research agenda for the study of emotional design."

More than 40 Bay Area school principals in quarantine after in-person meeting

More than 40 Bay Area school principals in quarantine after in-person meeting | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
More than 40 school principals in the South Bay are in quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 during an in-person meeting held by the Santa Clara Unified School District.

A pre-symptomatic individual at the school reopening planning meeting on June 19 tested positive for the coronavirus just a few days after school administrators congregated.

Superintendent Stella Kemp confirmed the exposure to the school board during an online meeting last week.

Reopening Schools: Ideas Across Scenarios :: Highlander Institute - Last Update August 4, 2020

Reopening Schools: Ideas Across Scenarios :: Highlander Institute - Last Update August 4, 2020 | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"There is no shortage of resources around reopening schools. The topic is front of mind for teachers, leaders, policymakers, and families across the country and world. These resources are critical as district leadership teams convene to plan for an unprecedented fall; the problem is time - wading through all of the information out there is tough when demands on leadership have never been higher. In response, the Highlander Institute team has culled through dozens of resources and extracted a list of concrete, actionable ideas to support re-entry planning. The intent is to inspire school teams to consider multiple ways of approaching looming challenges through a quick review so they can efficiently adapt and expand on ideas that fit well within local contexts. 

 

"The following compilation reflects a review of 50+ resources as well as the collective brainstorm of 50+ talented teachers and leaders across the state of Rhode Island. The majority of this group is composed of Fuse RI Fellows, who have played a variety of critical leadership roles in their district transitions to distance learning this spring. Organized into five categories: Summer Planning, Full Distance Learning, Combination Learning, Full In-Person Learningand Good Ideas Across Scenarios, our list attends to the values defined in our 4 Key Considerations framework - which sets meaningful learning on top of a strong foundation of relationship building, wellness, communication, and care for students and families. Links have been added when original sources offer detailed implementation guidance. Ideas within each scenario explore guiding questions that will be front and center during planning conversations"

"This summer, open your kid’s mind back up.


"Nothing feels normal about the new normal. You had busy enough schedules before, and now you’ve had to add a whole new dimension of caregiving, as de facto teachers, coaches and counselors. Some degree of at-home learning might even continue in the fall. Now more than ever, parents and caregivers need ideas and resources to help manage learning at home.

"That's why we've created an eBook for COVID-weary parents, featuring 21 ready-to-go projects for all grade levels."

Teaching Students to Avoid Plagiarism :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez

Teaching Students to Avoid Plagiarism :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

In my own experience as a teacher and a parent, I have seen acts of plagiarism that I truly believe were rooted in ignorance.

"Take my 5th-grade daughter, for instance. A few months ago, she and her best friend were collaborating on a Google Slides presentation about a Native American tribe. Reading over it as she worked, I found sentence after sentence written in language she never could have come up with. When I asked her where she got the information, she told me point blank that she copied and pasted it from a website. It took me forever to explain why that was wrong and what she needed to do instead. She seriously had no idea. She wasn’t trying to cheat. Eventually, I convinced her that she really, really needed to revise, and even though she did, I could tell she was mostly humoring me.

"Okay, that’s 5th grade, you say. Surely it gets better as students get older?

"Marginally. Let’s take a look at college undergrads. In two separate studies, undergraduates were asked to identify incidences of plagiarism. In both, students’ ability to correctly label plagiarism could best be described as limited (Dawson & Overfield, 2006; Marshall & Garry, 2005). In other words, a significant number of students have an incomplete understanding of what plagiarism actually is. And if they don’t always know when they’re doing it, it’s going to be pretty hard to get them to stop.

"To be clear, I’m not arguing that all students who plagiarize are innocent. I’ve had students whose attempts at passing off someone else’s work as their own were so blatant, I took it as a personal insult. But I do believe we can cut way back on less deliberate instances of plagiarism by teaching students the skills to avoid it."

"It’s almost August. School starts in many parts of the country in less than a month. And the coronavirus pandemic is still raging, with Florida hospitals full and 18 states setting single-day records last week.

 

"The result is that many schools can’t open safely, and many districts have announced that they will be continuing remote learning into the fall. That’s left parents — many of whom are worried about their kids’ ability to learn online, not to mention their own ability to keep their jobs with no child care — scrambling for solutions.

 

"One that’s gotten a lot of attention in recent days is the idea of “pods,” in which families bring their kids together in small groups to get some of the socialization and other benefits of in-person instruction. The idea is appealing to a lot of parents, who have been signing up for neighborhood pods on Facebook and elsewhere, but it also raises concerns about equity, especially as some parents with disposable income are hiring private tutors to lead their pods and even considering renting out private space for them.

 

"In ordinary times, at least, “every child has an equal opportunity to go to school,” Ty Lewis, CEO of the Educationally Speaking Center for Learning, an Atlanta nonprofit, told Vox. But now not every child has an equal opportunity to be in a pod — low-income parents can’t afford to pay a tutor or rent a space, and if pods form mostly among neighbors, they risk further amplifying the kinds of residential segregation that already exist in the American school system.

 

"However, there may be ways to extend the benefits of small-group, in-person instruction beyond those families with the money to pay for a private pod. At least one public school, for example, the Rooftop School in San Francisco, is organizing its own pods in an effort to ensure equity. “We want our kids spending their time in cohorts that reflect Rooftop’s whole student body,” Rooftop principal Nancy Bui told Vox in an email."

177 Questions to Inspire Writing, Discussion, Debate and Reflection - The New York Times

177 Questions to Inspire Writing, Discussion, Debate and Reflection - The New York Times | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

'Each school day, we publish a new Student Opinion question. The questions explore everything from family, school and friendships to race, gender and social media. Not surprisingly, this past year, many of our Student Opinion prompts also touched on how the coronavirus pandemic affected nearly all aspects of our lives.

 

"During the 2019-20 school year, we asked 177 questions, and you can find them all below or here as a PDF. The questions are divided into two categories — those that provide opportunities for debate and persuasive writing, and those that lend themselves to creative, personal or reflective writing.

 

A New "York Times article, interactive feature or video is the jumping-off point for each question, and students can view each linked Times article without a digital subscription.

 

"These questions are used by some teachers as a way to spark class discussion and debate, while other teachers use them as an entry point for practicing narrative or persuasive writing. Our Student Opinion questions offer an authentic audience for student voices as well as a way to encourage students to engage with current events and peers from around the world.

 

"We also have a free, on-demand webinar that offers other ideas on how to use our writing prompts in the classroom for everyday low-stakes writing practice across the curriculum."

Exploring the Federal Implications of COVID-19 on K-12 Assessments :: KnowlegeWorks :: Lillian Pace

Exploring the Federal Implications of COVID-19 on K-12 Assessments :: KnowlegeWorks :: Lillian Pace | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"As frontline educators scramble to address these immediate challenges, some stakeholders have begun to wrestle with the long-term questions about how our education system operates and how it can best serve its students, especially students of color, low-income students and students with learning differences.

 

"Many of these questions require federal leadership to better align the nation’s K-12 education laws with the increasingly popular personalized and competency-based teaching and learning systems.

"Simply returning to an approach where all students learn at the same pace and in the same place is not an option. To this end, this is the first of four articles surfacing big questions that federal policymakers must address as they consider how to respond to the lasting impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope these questions contribute to a rich discussion about how to address these challenges in the coming school year – and beyond."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This article raises a number of very significant questions that have yet to be widely considered.

Schools reopening: Internal CDC documents warn full reopening of schools is 'highest risk,' New York Times reports - CNNPolitics

Schools reopening: Internal CDC documents warn full reopening of schools is 'highest risk,' New York Times reports - CNNPolitics | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Internal documents from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that fully reopening K-12 schools and universities would be the "highest risk" for the spread of coronavirus, according to a New York Times report, as President Donald Trump and his administration push for students and teachers to return in-person to classrooms.

 
The 69-page document obtained by the Times marked "For Internal Use Only" was among materials for federal public health response teams deployed to coronavirus hotspots to help local public health officials handle the outbreak, the newspaper reported.
 
The document was circulated this week, the Times reported, as Trump slammed the CDC guidelines around reopening schools and he, Vice President Mike Pence and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos increased their pressure on schools to fully reopen by the fall.
