Technology in Education
Education In Society
How does poverty affect one's education?
Statistics:
Out of 100 Chicago public school freshman, only 8 end up earning a bachelor degree by their mid 20's
4 out of 10 Chicago public school freshman do not graduate
Out of the remaining students that end up graduating, 91% have to take remedial classes in college because they cannot do basic math or school work
Only 26% of Chicago students are actually ready for college after high school
Student comment about the incident:
"Their, their, your all just jealous, Besides, it should say 'This be are story.'"
"When systems are broken, it's an opportunity for invention and innovation."
It affects a persons life chance. Society says that if you don't have a good education, then you are going to be unsuccessful.

Steve Jobs - Net worth 7 Billion College dropout
Richard Banson - Net worth 4.2 Billion High school dropout
Mark Zuckerberg College dropout
Bill Gates College dropout

"...education is about the building of a character as much as intelligence" yet society feels that the school system (following the government's regulations) take away the creativity and individuality in students.

Negative Effects of Education in Society
Fine Arts and Sports
#TransformationTuesday
Enhancing student learning
Fine Arts
-Students make connections between their education and their arts.
-Adams Middle School in California is a specific example of diminishing fine arts programs
-No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law includes the arts as a core class subject
-Many schools can not support a budget for fine arts programs
-Fine arts programs are an extension of the classroom in subjects such as English, History, and Math
-Growing awareness to the importance of these programs have created a push for local and state policy changes
-Adams Middle School in California will be effected by the arts budget that, in theory will give every public school a budget for an arts program.
Sports
-From 2007 to 2012 there has been a 39.4% increase in student participation in clubs and activities
-Some claim sports decrease academic success, but this claim is not supported by any research
- Dan Bowen and Jay P. Greene research Ohio High schools to prove the innacuracy of the stereotypical "dumb jock"
-A 10% increase in sport related success directly relates with a .25% increase of the number of students who meet or exceed state educational standards
-Schools with more sport related achievement tend to have higher test scores and graduation rates
-Sports also enrich moral lessons taught in classes everyday
-" Sports provided one of the only outlets to avoid even greater dangers and sports taught me life lessons, at an impressionable age, that I may not have learned otherwise"
-Donté Stallworth (former NFL player)
As the number of highly educated individuals increases, the competition with in the job market at higher levels increases as well.

As the number of people with higher education levels increases, they will become reluctant to work at lower tech or lower paying jobs.
Negative Effects of Education in Society (cont.)
"Throughout history, most individuals have been the victims of forces beyond their control. Where you were born, both geographically and in class terms, was overwhelmingly likely to dictate your future. Horizons were narrow, hopes limited, happiness a matter of time and chance. But education provides a route to liberation from these imposed constraints. Education allows individuals to choose a fulfilling job, to shape the society around them, to enrich their inner life. It allows us all to become authors of our own life stories." - Former Secretary of Education, Michael Gove
Positive Effects of Education in Society
It is a pathway for new opportunities. Even if you are born in the poorer class, with enough endurance and a proper education, you can live a more successful life.
It leads to a higher social status

"Education is Self Empowerment. Receiving a good education helps empower you, thus making you strong enough to look after yourself in any given situation." -Journalist and Author Rohini Mohan.

Creates organization within a society. Develops professions and professionals OF these professions.
Economy may benefit in that there would be more individuals capable of working at the highly skilled jobs.
Ancient Education

-Gradual rise of more complex civilizations in the river valleys of Egypt and Babylonia
-Knowledge became too complicated to transmit from person to person and generation to generation
-With the rise of trade, government, and formal religion came the invention of writing in about 3100 BC
"Thou didst beat me and knowledge entered my head"
Early Colonial Education

-Separation of education between upper and lower class
-Separation of education between boys and girls
-Private education without government intervention

Quote from Sir Ken Robinson:

If you look at public education systems in their general shape, they are manufacturing processes. And a lot of it happens — we separate people by age, it's a very linear process, very focused on certain types of outcome. And standardized testing is, in a way, the grand example of the industrial method of education. It's not there to identify what individuals can do. It's there to look at things to which they conform.

No Child Left Behind
NCLB set in place the requirements that reached into virtually every public school in America.

On average, we take a total of 113 standardized tests between pre-K and grade 12, with 11th grade being the most.
In 2011, the U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, issued the dire warning that 82% percent of schools would be labeled “failing” that year. The numbers did not turn out as high, but many states saw failure rates of over 50%. This is no where near the goal of the act.

The history of technology in education 1:01- 1:56
Now:
97% of teachers have one or more computers located in their classroom everyday
and
97% of schools across the country have Internet connectivity as of 2010
The general American perception of our education system is typically very negative, due to factors such as media’s influence and worldwide statistics. Our education system should be a reflection of the principles of our democracy.
There are many situations in which we have failed to live up to these principles. However, there are great examples of achievement in modern day society.

Online learning; also known as
e
-learning is on the rise in many forms in various schools
More than 1.5 Million K-12 students were engaged in some form of online learning in the 2009-2010 school year.
By the end of 2010...
full- time online learning opportunities were available in 48 of the 50 states
27 states had full time online schools serving statewide
Schools say that online learning saves money as well as helping with scheduling conflicts, they can also offer higher learning classes may not be available at the school.
Social Media also provides a way for teachers to connect with their students
Schools are using social media to promote school events, help organize school clubs, and help coordinate other things

These sites allow instructors to extend the school day if they didn't get to where they wanted to in class that day. These websites also useful for assigning homework on snow days! :))))))))
Teachers are taking part in this technology movement; some teachers are putting their lessons online on youtube, allowing children to watch them again; also channels like crash course help teachers to show interactive and interesting videos about their topic
These technologies are helping achieve success in schools, however, these technologies may not be as effective in places with high poverty rates, such as Chicago
