"What's Good" is Better than "What's New?" | Practical Theory - 1 views

    • Nancy Schmidt
      Don't always add because the media touts something as the best new trend in education. We must marry the best ideas of the past to our current world...must identify what students need to be success then identify what is the best technology that will help them achieve that knowledge.
    Let's not lose sight of what constitutes good teaching by following the hot trends.

Teachers: Is AI Coming to Take Your Job? by @AIConf2018 - 16 views

    "Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic at the moment, with estimates varying wildly about how many jobs will be replaced by machine learning algorithms. Whatever the outcome, in reality, it is clear that schools will need to change, in order to prepare their students for the resulting impact on society and the skills needed for future employment."

      Great Quote and good opener to class time because students realize the teacher is not taking a position of having all the answers. Good flattener.

Contextual Analysis- Uganda (Sarita Vengal) | International Field Program Seminar-Spring '11 - 11 views

  • Food and grocery stores definitely plays an important role in this community. There were also an unexpected amount of African art and music stores. I think diaspora communities like this have a lot of meeting and community aid establishments to help immigrants navigate the American system of living.
    • Fabiola Berdiel
      Very insightful contextual analysis
  • I honestly didn’t see too many advertisements outside of the West African diaspora context. The ads that I did see were not billboards or real advertisements. There were mostly posters or small signs showcasing the sales in each of the stores.
  • As a native New Yorker, who grew up in an Indian diaspora community, I felt like a lot of the sights resonated with my childhood.  And to make things even more familair, I lived in Niger for a few months and did feel a certain connection to the area.

  • I also didn’t see that many women walking around, it was mostly men who were hanging around local hot spots. The women that I did see, were going somewhere specific and not really hanging out outside.

Education 2011: A case study in seniority-and burn-out - Buffalo Spree - September 2011 - Buffalo, NY - 74 views

  • The following year teachers are required to “map” curriculums, a long process with no apparent functional use. Teaching for Understanding and Cross Curriculum Literacy are two trendy new programs promoting the latest hot topic. Everyone reads Active Literacy before author Heidi Hayes Jacobs arrives amidst great fanfare to promote her comprehensive program, which administrators cherry-pick, then forget. By 2008 the latest buzz-phrase is Professional Learning Communities. The high school adopts this concept at considerable cost and strife. Three years later Principal Power moves on, and PLCs fizzle. With each new initiative Sara’s enthusiasm diminishes. She has twenty-two years of books, binders, and workshop folders stacked in a file drawer, representing hundreds of hours of abandoned work. Sara digs through the strata like a scientist noting geologic eras. She ponders the energy spent on each new program, technological advance, and philosophical shift, and decides the only way she’ll make it to retirement is to stop caring so much. President Obama introduces the Race to the Top Fund, and by 2010 New York has successfully secured its slice of the cash cow. Common Core Standards are developed in 2011, and a system is put into place to rate teachers based on student test scores. Epilogue In 2013 the anti-union movement hits NY State and teacher unions lose the right to collectively bargain. With the help of key Assembly members, New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Governor Andrew Cuomo push through legislation they had endorsed for years eliminating the time-honored practice of laying-off teachers by seniority—“last hired, first fired.” A new math teacher is hired at Sara’s school. Being young and unattached, Bob impresses the new principal, who sees to it that he is not assigned the “problem” kids. Sara remains a competent and dedicated teacher, but the fire is out. She is asked to mentor Bob, but feels no motivation to train the competition. Bob can’t help but notice that Sara shows little interest in the newest reform initiatives. In 2014 a math position is cut due to budget constraints. At half the pay, Bob is clearly the better choice. Sara is laid off, and at age fifty, with a son in college, she joins the unemployed.
