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

A Closer Look at Open Educational Resources :: Cult of Pedagogy - Jennifer Gonzalez

A Closer Look at Open Educational Resources :: Cult of Pedagogy - Jennifer Gonzalez | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"I was skeptical when I first heard about the #GoOpen movement. This initiative, launched by the U.S. Department of Education in 2015, encouraged schools and districts to adopt free, openly licensed instructional resources. Sounded nice in theory, but I didn’t see it working: Where was the quality control? How would teachers be able to tell if they were getting good stuff? In a crowded sea of free resources, how many hours would it take to even find what they needed?

 

"Then, earlier this year, I went to a conference and met Karen Vaites, who calls herself a “curriculum evangelist” and is an enthusiastic promoter of OERs, Open Educational Resources. Talking to Karen over cheeseburgers at one of the diviest bars in Austin, I was convinced to give OERs another look."

7 questions parents need to ask on back-to-school night - The Washington Post

7 questions parents need to ask on back-to-school night - The Washington Post | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Ken Robinson — education expert, author, TED Talker — and Ted Dintersmith, education activist and author, urge parents to be prepared for back-to-school night. It’s a perfect time to talk to the teachers and really dig deep into what is expected of your children this year. Here are their tips.  

"With the new school year upon us, parents will be attending a back-to-school night at their child’s school. Many ask us, “What questions should I be asking?” Here are seven you might explore with your child’s teachers and principal. We hope they’ll shed light on what to expect during the coming year and provide constructive food for thought for you and your school’s educators."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

On the one hand, it might be the height of ridiculous to post these questions to ask on back-to-school night, at or near the end of the school year. On the other hand, it might be the perfect time for we educators to be able to ponder these questions in time to plan changes we would like to make for next year so we can be even more proud of our responses then, than what we might say now.

Getting Started with Blended Learning Videos | Faculty Focus

Getting Started with Blended Learning Videos | Faculty Focus | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

“There’s just not enough time in class with students!” It’s a common faculty complaint and when students are provided quality course materials they can use outside of class, this blended learning approach gives faculty more time in class. There’s a variety of materials that can be developed for use outside of class. In this article we’d like to focus on creating video content that students use for a blended learning course.

"Blended learning videos benefit students and teachers in several ways:

"*They give students more time to process information, and can have them coming to class prepared to discuss and put their learning into practice
*Teachers can better maximize class time for higher-order, student-centered, collaborative learning activities
*Videos help teachers standardize content for core and required classes
*Students can view and review videos at their own pace and during times convenient to them
*Blended approaches provide teachers an appropriate way to incorporate audio and visuals into the learning process
*These approaches speak the language of a digital generation"

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This article gives an edifying summary of responses by students to a survey of their preferred styles of video presentation. It is well worth reading.

Opinion | The College Dropout Crisis - The New York Times

Opinion | The College Dropout Crisis - The New York Times | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"The chart above is based on an analysis done by The New York Times and the Urban Institute’s Center on Education Data and Policy. We undertook this project because the college-dropout crisis is a major contributor to American inequality. Many lower-income and middle-class students excel in high school only to falter in college. They then struggle to get good jobs.

"College matters so much because it isn’t just about book learning or the development of tangible skills. It’s one of the first obstacle courses of adult life. The students who complete it typically go on to earn more and live healthier and happier lives, research shows.

"For too long, high-school students, parents and guidance counselors have hardly thought about graduation rates when choosing a college. And for a long time on many campuses, administrators and faculty members didn’t even know what their college’s graduation rate was.

"But now people are starting to realize the stakes. “The issue of college completion is front and center for presidents and trustees,” said Ted Mitchell, a former Obama administration official who runs the American Council on Education, a consortium of universities.

Some high school administrators have also started focusing on the problem, in part out of frustration. Over the years, they have watched their hard-working, talented graduates struggle in college. “It’s disappointing, to say the least,” said Catherine Suitor, the chief advancement officer at Alliance, a network of charter schools in Los Angeles.

"In response, Alliance has put together its own ranking, based on colleges’ graduation rates for students who are black or Latino (as most Alliance students are). It then encourages students to attend a college with a relatively high rate. “A bachelor’s degree,” Suitor said, “is the single most influential determinant in multigenerational change and ending the cycle of poverty.”

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This is a very important article for anyone even loosely connected to educating young people and adolescents.

The Fundamentals of Formative Assessment: How to Build a Practice :: Getting Smart 

The Fundamentals of Formative Assessment: How to Build a Practice :: Getting Smart  | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Just over two years ago, in January of 2017, Cheryl Niehaus of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation posted about a challenge that laid ahead of us:

 

Knowing that traditional approaches to professional development too often do not result in sustained changes in classroom practice, how might we systematically support teachers to develop into exemplary formative assessment practitioners?”

 

'To address this challenge, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation brought together Education FirstGetting Smart, Susan Brookhart Enterprises and WestEd to build an initiative titled “How I Know: Designing Meaningful Formative Assessment Practice.” Three districts – Austin Independent School District (ISD), Dallas ISD, and Tulsa Public Schools – committed to the two-year initiative. Collectively, this network has aimed to identify, scale, and share successful approaches to improve formative assessment practice in classrooms.

 

'When we originally recognized formative assessment as a complex practice that demands a combination of “soft” skills and content, we knew we had a challenging, but achievable path ahead of us that would lead to greater student ownership of learning. In the two years since we began this journey under the How I Know project, we set (and adjusted and shifted) many goals along the way for our team to be successful.

 

'In the process, we learned a number of things about the fundamental pieces that needed to be in place in order to establish a strong foundational shift toward this powerful approach to student-driven learning in our schools, and have found the following 4 steps to be integral to our success thus far.'

"Facebook is about to get its own cryptocurrency called Libra. In a sense, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is declaring that he wants his platform to become a virtual nation, populated by users, powered by a self-contained economy, and headed by a CEO - Zuckerberg himself - who is not even accountable to his shareholders.

 

"Facebook has announced a plan to launch a new cryptocurrency named the Libra, adding another layer to its efforts to dominate global communications and business. Backed by huge finance and technology companies including Visa, Spotify, eBay, PayPal and Uber – plus a ready-made user base of 2 billion people around the world – Facebook is positioned to pressure countries and central banks to cooperate with its reinvention of the global financial system....

 

"Technology companies are interested in a global currency that is native to the internet. That could allow companies like Facebook and Twitter to bring in more users to their platforms, and collect money from businesses who want to join the new system. They also want to siphon off business from the existing financial services industry. That sector is worth trillions of dollars, is enormously profitable, and yet has struggled to implement its own digital currency.

 

"The technical details of Facebook’s plans are still emerging, but it seems that the company is not seeking to compete with Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Rather, Facebook is looking to replace the existing global financial system with an all-new setup, with Libra at its center."

L'empathie est bien plus qu'une qualité. C'est une compétence, qu'il faut faire l'effort d'acquérir, mais aussi de transmettre. Et l'école maternelle est, à mon sens, le premier creuset dans lequel elle doit prendre racines, afin d'être transmise avec le même engagement qu'un enseignant doit prendre pour l'apprentissage de la lecture  ou encore des mathématiques. C'est certainement ce chemin là qu'il faut emprunter pour un avenir meilleur !

Opinion | Americans Need More Neighbors - The New York Times | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Increasing the supply of urban housing would help to address a number of the problems plaguing the United States. Construction could increase economic growth and create blue-collar jobs. Allowing more people to live in cities could mitigate inequality and reduce carbon emissions. Yet in most places, housing construction remains wildly unpopular. People who think of themselves as progressives, environmentalists and egalitarians fight fiercely against urban development, complaining about traffic and shadows and the sanctity of lawns.

"That’s why a recent breakthrough in Minneapolis is so important. The city’s political leaders have constructed a broad consensus in favor of more housing. And the centerpiece is both simple and brilliant: Minneapolis is ending single-family zoning."

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Fascinating piece about how a change in zoning might resolve a large number of issues in American cities. The housing shortage directly impacts our schools in so many ways, both directly and indirectly.

Innovation Playlist

Innovation Playlist | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
Face it. Like all organizations, schools get locked into routine, impeding change. But all schools need to innovate to prepare kids for a dynamic and uncertain future. The question is, “How?” The Innovation Playlist can help your school make positive, informed change. It represents a teacher-led model, based on small steps leading to big change, that draws on best practices from outstanding educators and non-profits from across the country.

The Innovation Playlist consists of albums (the big goals on the left) and tracks (the small steps on the right that help you reach each big goal). Each track can be done quickly — fifteen minutes to a day or two — with minimal downside and lots of upside. The playlist process can be led by a school’s principal, by faculty at the school, grade or department level, or even by a family at home.

Reflection in the Learning Process, Not As An Add On | Silvia Tolisano- Langwitches Blog

Reflection in the Learning Process, Not As An Add On | Silvia Tolisano- Langwitches Blog | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
I know that most teachers acknowledge the role of reflection in learning. I see reflective practice when I visit classrooms, but I also acknowledge that most of that reflection seems to be in oral form. A form that allows the reflection to disappear, to evaporate after the moment has passed.  We wanted to make teachers aware of platforms and experiences that supported reflection in teaching and learning. After orally reflecting with students during a classroom conversation or possible silent ( intrapersonal ) reflection taking place by individual students, the next most used media and platform seemed to be text. Since we have a 1:1 laptop in High School and Middle School, most these types of reflective texts are written on Google Docs, Blogs or digital online sites. I wanted to move teachers’ focus beyond using text as the medium for reflection.

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Don't miss this! Sylvia Rosenthal Tolisano consistently offers excellent resources for educators at all levels. This graphic organizer on the topic of reflection strikes me as an outstanding example of ways to capture student reflection in engaging, concrete ways that overcome the instant disappearance of simple oral reflecting. The accompanying blog post offers thoughtful guidance.

"A high school sophomore from a disadvantaged background dreams of becoming a neonatal nurse. But the resources available to her don’t provide much information about how to make that dream a reality, and she doesn’t know any nurses to ask for advice. Internet searches turn up a flood of information, much of it not relevant.

"Jared Chung doesn’t want this student to lose her dream and give up on finding a path to her favored career. That’s why he and his wife, Jennifer Pan, founded CareerVillage, a nonprofit website that crowdsources career advice for youth.

"The site allows students to search and read questions from other students and advice and answers from registered volunteers. Those wanting more answers can create a profile and ask their own questions."
