Transcript of Education

Gracie Smith, Jacob O'Dell, & Alan Huynh Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
- Nelson Mandela What does it mean to be educated? Different ways of obtaining this knowledge The Fort Wayne district increasingly diverse students by offering new courses for its schools by adding more languages for other cultures and specifically focusing on the maths and sciences to increase the amount of students that would be interested in their school. How does FWCS address diversity in it's schools? The inequalities of education in "To Kill A Mockingbird" is seen during when there are students such as the Ewells refusing to go to school and Miss. Caroline that abolishes learning ahead and fails to connect to the students. What inequities have you seen in education so far? Why aren't all children mandated to go to school? Education Is education a right or a privilege? “The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living differ from the dead.” - Aristotle Intelligence plus character is the goal of true education - Martin Luther King Jr. In a forbes.com article Steve Denning defines education as a demonstrated ability to;
listen carefully
think critically
evaluate facts rigorously
reason analytically
imagine creatively
articulate interesting questions
explore alternative viewpoints
maintain intellectual curiosity
speak and write persuasively
Added to a reasonable familiarity with the treasures of history, literature, theater, music, dance and art that previous civilizations have delivered. Children must be taught how to think, not what to think. - Margaret Mead It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. - Aristotle An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't. - Anatole France The right to education has been universally recognized since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Why? Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits. But wait.. 75 million children do not have access to basic education.
150 million children currently enrolled will drop out before completing primary education - at least two-thirds are girls
776 million adults in the world are illiterate and never got an education.

The right to education means that all these people have been discriminated against and their rights have been violated. Are there different types of knowledge?
Technical Knowledge vs. Practical Knowledge
Knowing that vs.Knowing how
Propositional knowledge vs.Procedural knowledge
Conscious knowledge vs.Tacit knowledge
Comprehension (knowledge about) vs. Apprehension (knowledge by direct acquaintance) Theories on different types of knowledge Yes. There are different types of knowledge such as:
implications People Starting when they're born people copy other people to learn how to do, well, everything. There will always be someone to teach you something and something you can teach someone else. Books There are millions and millions of books written throughout the world in every language and on almost any topic imaginable. Whatever problem you are facing must have been faced by somebody else before, and its solution is likely to have been preserved in the form of a book. Experience It is said that experience is a great teacher, so learn from your past experiences and the experience of others. Learn from your and others' past and present achievements as well as mistakes. Experimentation and Observation Experimentation is to try out new things and learn from your successes and failures. Observation is to pay attention to small and big details as you experiment Thinking and Pondering Think about the subject and figure it out. Contemplate everything you have observed, read, experienced and experimented with and discover knowledge for yourself In To Kill A Mockingbird, Quotes All the children in the story aren't required to go to school because some are excused and unwanted by others like the Ewells that cause problems for many.
