Stephen Ritz - Extraordinary People Changing the Game - 0 views

    Stephen Ritz is a dynamic inspiration for kids in the Bronx who used to believe there was no more hope for them. His enthusiasm is undoubtedly contagious, enabling troubled teenagers to secure a source of living with the use of the knowledge he equipped them with in and out of school. Besides restoring hope, Stephen helped the malnourished community reclaim their health by growing local produce right in his very classrooms. His non-profit organization called Green Bronx Machine harvested produce enough to feed 450 people. Now that's what you call serving the community in the truest sense of the word.

Digital Citizenship | the human network - 0 views

  • The change is already well underway, but this change is not being led by teachers, administrators, parents or politicians. Coming from the ground up, the true agents of change are the students within the educational system.
  • While some may be content to sit on the sidelines and wait until this cultural reorganization plays itself out, as educators you have no such luxury. Everything hits you first, and with full force. You are embedded within this change, as much so as this generation of students.
  • We make much of the difference between “digital immigrants”, such as ourselves, and “digital natives”, such as these children. These kids are entirely comfortable within the digital world, having never known anything else. We casually assume that this difference is merely a quantitative facility. In fact, the difference is almost entirely qualitative. The schema upon which their world-views are based, the literal ‘rules of their world’, are completely different.
  • ...13 more annotations...
  • The Earth becomes a chalkboard, a spreadsheet, a presentation medium, where the thorny problems of global civilization and its discontents can be explored out in exquisite detail. In this sense, no problem, no matter how vast, no matter how global, will be seen as being beyond the reach of these children. They’ll learn this – not because of what teacher says, or what homework assignments they complete – through interaction with the technology itself.
  • We and our technological-materialist culture have fostered an environment of such tremendous novelty and variety that we have changed the equations of childhood.
  • As it turns out (and there are numerous examples to support this) a mobile handset is probably the most important tool someone can employ to improve their economic well-being. A farmer can call ahead to markets to find out which is paying the best price for his crop; the same goes for fishermen. Tradesmen can close deals without the hassle and lost time involved in travel; craftswomen can coordinate their creative resources with a few text messages. Each of these examples can be found in any Bangladeshi city or Africa village.
  • The sharing of information is an innate human behavior: since we learned to speak we’ve been talking to each other, warning each other of dangers, informing each other of opportunities, positing possibilities, and just generally reassuring each other with the sound of our voices. We’ve now extended that four-billion-fold, so that half of humanity is directly connected, one to another.
  • Everything we do, both within and outside the classroom, must be seen through this prism of sharing. Teenagers log onto video chat services such as Skype, and do their homework together, at a distance, sharing and comparing their results. Parents offer up their kindergartener’s presentations to other parents through Twitter – and those parents respond to the offer. All of this both amplifies and undermines the classroom. The classroom has not dealt with the phenomenal transformation in the connectivity of the broader culture, and is in danger of becoming obsolesced by it.
  • We already live in a time of disconnect, where the classroom has stopped reflecting the world outside its walls. The classroom is born of an industrial mode of thinking, where hierarchy and reproducibility were the order of the day. The world outside those walls is networked and highly heterogeneous. And where the classroom touches the world outside, sparks fly; the classroom can’t handle the currents generated by the culture of connectivity and sharing. This can not go on.
  • We must accept the reality of the 21st century, that, more than anything else, this is the networked era, and that this network has gifted us with new capabilities even as it presents us with new dangers. Both gifts and dangers are issues of potency; the network has made us incredibly powerful. The network is smarter, faster and more agile than the hierarchy; when the two collide – as they’re bound to, with increasing frequency – the network always wins.
  • A text message can unleash revolution, or land a teenager in jail on charges of peddling child pornography, or spark a riot on a Sydney beach; Wikipedia can drive Britannica, a quarter millennium-old reference text out of business; a outsider candidate can get himself elected president of the United States because his team masters the logic of the network. In truth, we already live in the age of digital citizenship, but so many of us don’t know the rules, and hence, are poor citizens.
  • before a child is given a computer – either at home or in school – it must be accompanied by instruction in the power of the network. A child may have a natural facility with the network without having any sense of the power of the network as an amplifier of capability. It’s that disconnect which digital citizenship must bridge.
  • Let us instead focus on how we will use technology in fifty years’ time. We can already see the shape of the future in one outstanding example – a website known as Here, in a database of nine million reviews of one million teachers, lecturers and professors, students can learn which instructors bore, which grade easily, which excite the mind, and so forth. This simple site – which grew out of the power of sharing – has radically changed the balance of power on university campuses throughout the US and the UK.
  • Alongside the rise of, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of lecture material you can find online, whether on YouTube, or iTunes University, or any number of dedicated websites. Those lectures also have ratings, so it is already possible for a student to get to the best and most popular lectures on any subject, be it calculus or Mandarin or the medieval history of Europe.
  • As the university dissolves in the universal solvent of the network, the capacity to use the network for education increases geometrically; education will be available everywhere the network reaches. It already reaches half of humanity; in a few years it will cover three-quarters of the population of the planet. Certainly by 2060 network access will be thought of as a human right, much like food and clean water.
  • Educators will continue to collaborate, but without much of the physical infrastructure we currently associate with educational institutions. Classrooms will self-organize and disperse organically, driven by need, proximity, or interest, and the best instructors will find themselves constantly in demand. Life-long learning will no longer be a catch-phrase, but a reality for the billions of individuals all focusing on improving their effectiveness within an ever-more-competitive global market for talent.

Take 2 Inc. - Homepage - 0 views

    This is in incredible resource and opportunity. Great for collaboration with Digital Media Class and content area subject. I also like the advocacy and "pass it forward" requirements.
    How to Turn a Teenager Into a Global Citizen 1. Provide professionally-shot conflict-zone footage free of charge to high school and college students in the USA and across the globe. 2. Support the students in creating documentaries, shorts, and public service announcements that demonstrate understanding and empathy with their subjects. 3. Provide forums for students to collaborate with other participating schools and receive peer/expert feedback on their projects and ideas. 4. Encourage the students to showcase their projects in a variety of forums in order to practice their leadership skills and create a broader public understanding on issues of global significance

Identity Theft Resource Center | A Nonprofit Organization - 12 views

    "Identity theft can affect everyone, including teenagers. It is important for you to know what information is needed to steal your identity and the best ways of protecting your information. Your information, in the wrong hands, can 'jack your life!' Identity theft is when someone uses your information for their gain. Thieves can use information about you, such as your social security number, to open up fraudulent credit cards, get student loans, and even get out of traffic tickets. Because of this, it is important to be knowledgeable when giving out any personal information about yourself, including people you trust. This information includes your social security number, driver's license number, state ID number, any banking information or your student ID number. This type of information should only be given out when it is absolutely necessary. In Teen Space you will find suggestions and information on the topic of Identity Theft. As well, we have lesson plans, games, and a video on identity theft.…"

When is Creativity "Authentic"? Making Music on the iPad. - iPads in Education - 0 views

  • Our schools are very keyed into academic content and standards and we tend to focus too heavily on apps that drill and practice math, vocabulary and more. The inherent magic of mobile devices lies in their ability to enable students to express themselves creatively
    I recently came across the incredible Guitar Improvisation video below. It's an amazing piece of music that was completely created using GarageBand on the iPad. In fact, there have been quite a few popular music videos recently that feature artists creating music using iOS apps. In a second video below, the band Atomic Tom use their iPhones to perform on a New York City subway. A third video features a teenage girl creating music using GarageBand on the iPad.

Elif Bilgin - Extraordinary People Changing the Game - 0 views

    Plastic destroys our ecosystem yet we keep reproducing them. It's as if we are only after making life more convenient for the present and not at the very least concerned about the fate of our children, who will basically inherit this planet. It's easy to just ignore this for now especially if we delude ourselves with false hope that someone else will figure out a way to solve a major problem such as pollution. Elif Bilgin, a gifted teen from Istanbul, isn't too selfish to just think of the now. She made bio-plastics out of banana peels. To read more about Elif Bilgin visit

Parker Liautaud - Extraordinary People Changing the Game - 0 views

    Age is not something Parker Liautaud considered when he decided to do his share in saving the planet. He's been called a show-off, a spoilt kid, a climate change clown. Some people could not bring themselves to believe that someone under 20 would literally walk halfway around the world, in a biting cold environment, just to get the global warming message across. Parker was not even the athletic type to begin with. But after working hard, he became the youngest to complete a Last Degree expedition to the Geographic North Pole all for the love of the planet.

Mackenzie Bearup - Extraordinary People Changing the Game - 0 views

    Mackenzie Bearup may seem unfortunate for having been diagnosed to have an incurable disease known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. She, however, did not let this disability keep her from doing extraordinary things, like providing kids with distraction to help them cope with their emotional distress and physical pain.
