Learning styles & the importance of critical self-reflection | Tesia Marshik | TEDxUWLaCrosse
 
18:15
The belief in learning styles is so widespread, it is considered to be common sense. Few people ever challenge this belief, which has been deeply ingrained in our educational system. Teachers are routinely told that in order to be effective educators, they must identify & cater to individual students' learning styles; it is estimated that around 90% of students believe that they have a specific learning style but research suggests that learning styles don't actually exist! This presentation focuses on debunking this myth via research findings, explaining how/why the belief in learning styles is problematic, and examining the reasons why the belief persists despite the lack of evidence. Dr. Tesia Marshik is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Her research interests in educational psychology include student motivation, self-regulation, and teacher-student relationships.

A story surrounding more than a million students in India built around a booming IT industry, a machine like education system, a race to a seat amongst the top engineering colleges and student suicides in our system.

Adhitya Iyer completed his engineering degree from Mumbai University, where he studied in an institute interestingly named after Sardar Patel and was inaugurated by Nehru. He was listed as one of India's Top 30 student entrepreneurs by the NEN. He later spent 2 years in Bangalore selling chai, before he set out to write a non-fiction on the complex life of India's engineers is Kickstarter funded and is India's highest crowdfunded book. He thinks the society needs to be re-imagined and that humans can't be spending more than half their life doing something they seldom enjoy.

A School Newspaper Links Sioux Indian Teens to Their Community
 
04:01
This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the American state of South Dakota is home to the Oglala Sioux Tribe. It's also where Nicky Oulette is in her first year as the journalism teacher at Little Wound High School. Ms. Oulette teaches the twelve students on the school newspaper, the Mustang News. She helps them choose story ideas if they need help. She says: "Sometimes, if we're getting stuck, I'll kind of guide them along. But, especially lately, they've been the one picking the articles."One student wanted to write her own column, comparing the weather to different parts of her own life. Another student wanted to start writing some song reviews. So now, every two weeks, she picks out a couple of songs and writes a review about them. The reporters also cover news like a recent flood at the school caused by a broken water pipe. Yet the real story here is that Nicky Oulette is the school's first journalism teacher in years. The Mustang News had stopped publishing. But now, not only is it back, copies are included every other week in the Lakota Country Times, a local newspaper. This way, school news reaches parents and other people in the community. Other student newspapers have been incorporated into Native American papers, but not many. The publisher of the Lakota Country Times, Connie Smith, says the public has welcomed the idea. She says: "Everywhere I go, people are talking to me about how proud they are. The kids do the news. They do the interviews. They take the pictures. Sometimes a teacher may have something that goes in, but mostly it's the students."Connie Smith says the quality is as good as some of the stories that are written by community members for the Lakota Country Times. The idea inspired two other schools on the Pine Ridge Reservation to publish their own papers. They take turns being included in the Times.Brooke Chase Alone works on the Mustang News at Little Wound High School. She says her favorite story so far has been covering the history of the annual Big Foot Ride. This is a two-week trail ride from the Standing Rock Reservation to Wounded Knee. Wounded Knee was where government soldiers killed more than two hundred Sioux in eighteen ninety. The Army called it a battle; Indians called it a massacre. Brooke has a personal connection to the story she wrote. Her grandfather, Percy White Plume, helped start the Big Foot Ride and one of the original riders, she says. She went to his house and interviewed him about his experience. For VOA Special English, I'm Carolyn Presutti.

Education in War: The Potential of Safe Schools
 
47:10
Teachers who teach western education? We will kill them! We will kill them in front of their students…” Abubakar Shekau, Leader of Boko Haram. It is believed 121 million children are out of school globally, 21 million of which live in conflict zones. In the West where we place so much emphasis on the value on gaining an education, we often take for granted our ability to do so unhindered by war and conflict. Children living in fragile or conflicted-affected countries however are twice as likely to be malnourished, three times as likely to miss primary school and almost twice as likely to die before age 5 compared to children in other developing countries. Furthermore, the humanitarian and developmental fallout from the military occupation of schools has predictably been devastating. Some reported attacks on schools have included killings, disappearance, abductions, forced exile, imprisonment, torture, and maiming, laying of landmines around schools, and destruction of educational buildings and materials. Whether for use as bases and barracks, defensive and offensive staging areas, weapons and ammunition storage, or for the illegal recruitment of children soldiers, the presence of military groups in schools endangers and undermines the education students receive. MIGS is honoured to invite Brenda Haiplik from UNICEF, Zama Coursen-Neff of Human Rights Watch, and Diya Nijhowne from the GCPEA to help make sense of the consequences of these attacks, and the role that establishing “safe schools” can play in protecting students. The conversation will cover 1) methods of prevention, 2) ensuring actor compliance, 3) reacting to emergencies, and 4) rehabilitating students after the fact. Bios: Zama Coursen-Neff is the executive director of the children’s rights division of Human Rights Watch. She leads the organization’s work on children’s rights and chairs the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA). Coursen-Neff also conducts fact-finding investigations and is the author of reports and articles on a range of issues affecting children, including access to education, police violence, refugee protection, the worst forms of child labor, and discrimination against women and girls. She has published on op-ed pages in major international and US publications and speaks regularly to the media. During a sabbatical in 2006/2007, she ran a protection monitoring team for the Norwegian Refugee Council in Sri Lanka. Before joining Human Rights Watch in 1999, Coursen-Neff clerked for a US federal judge, advocated on behalf of immigrants and refugees in the US, and worked with community development and women's organizations in Honduras. She is a graduate of Davidson College and New York University School of Law. https://twitter.com/ZamaHRW   Diya Nijhowne oversees management of all the Coalition’s research operations and program implementation. She has over a decade of experience working on children’s rights and protection issues, including in emergency contexts. Diya served as a Child Protection Worker in Canada investigating child abuse allegations.

The fight against teen suicide begins in the classroom | Brittni Darras | TEDxMileHigh
 
13:22
We’ve heard it in the news – the U.S. is gripped by an epidemic of teen suicide. Following the suicide of one student and the attempted suicide of another, high school teacher Brittni Darras realized that just watching for the signs isn’t enough. But how do we begin to tackle such a complicated and insurmountable problem? The answer is surprisingly simple. Brittni Darras is an English teacher at Rampart High School in Colorado Springs. Following the attempted suicide of one of Rampart’s students, Brittni wrote each of her 130 students personalized cards, earning her worldwide attention, the AspenPointe Hero of Mental Health Award, and the Mayor’s Young Leader Award in the category of Innovation in Education.

A call for sustainable "Fair Dealing" policies in education
 
01:38
Over the past 18 months nearly every Canadian university, college and school board outside Quebec has adopted nearly "fair dealing" content use guidelines closely resembling those promoted by CMEC. Among producers content for educators and students there is grave concern over the effect these policies are already having on the industry and what it will mean for the future availability of Canadian content in our classrooms. There is also disappointment at the coordinated promotion of practices that appear hostile towards domestic publishing for education. These new policies authorize and encourage copying based on a definition of "fair dealing" that is not supported by the law. Instead, they represent what some of the education sector's lawyers and administrators would like the law to be. Usage data shows that educators today share more content with students than ever before, whether it's by loose handout, printed coursepack, emailed attachment, upload to learning management system, or other means. With articles from magazines, newspapers and journals; chapters from books and textbooks; sections of published non-fiction, literature, photography, art; and much more; educators create customized reading and viewing that supports curriculum. The value of flexible content use for educators and students is without question. However continued access to valued Canadian content is unsustainable without a system that fairly rewards creators and publishers. At Access Copyright we believe that copyright should work for everyone and that's why we're dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to serve the education community's content and copyright needs.

Early Recognition Of Child Development Problems / Educational Video
 
04:34
Recognizing Child Development Problems / Educational Video. Public domain video courtesy of CDC. It's time to change how we view a child's growth. Do you know all the ways you should measure your childs growth? We naturally think of height and weight, but from birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks and acts. A delay in any of these areas could be a sign of a developmental problem, even autism. The good news is, the earlier its recognized the more you can do to help your child reach her full potential. Early recognition of developmental disabilities such as autism is key for parents and providers. CDC realized the impact on families and invested in a campaign to help parents measure their children's progress by monitoring how they play, learn, speak and act. What is child development? A child's growth is more than just physical. Children grow, develop, and learn throughout their lives, starting at birth. A child's development can be followed by how they play, learn, speak, and behave. What is a developmental delay? Will my child just grow out of it? Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in playing, learning, speaking, behaving, and moving (crawling, walking, etc.). A developmental delay is when your child does not reach these milestones at the same time as other children the same age. If your child is not developing properly, there are things you can do that may help. Most of the time, a developmental problem is not something your child will "grow out of" on his or her own. But with help, your child could reach his or her full potential! What is developmental screening? Doctors and nurses use developmental screening to tell if children are learning basic skills when they should, or if they might have problems. Your child's doctor may ask you questions or talk and play with your child during an exam to see how he or she learns, speaks, behaves, and moves. Since there is no lab or blood test to tell if your child may have a delay, the developmental screening will help tell if your child needs to see a specialist. Why is developmental screening important? When a developmental delay is not recognized early, children must wait to get the help they need. This can make it hard for them to learn when they start school. In the United States, 17 percent of children have a developmental or behavioral disability such as autism, intellectual disability (also known as mental retardation), or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. But, less than half of children with problems are identified before starting school. During this time, the child could have received help for these problems and may even have entered school more ready to learn. Talk to your child's doctor or nurse if you have concerns about how your child is developing. If you or your doctor think there could be a problem, you can take your child to see a developmental pediatrician or other specialist, and you can contact your local early intervention agency (for children under 3) or public school (for children 3 and older) for help. To find out who to speak to in your area, you can contact the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities by logging on to http://www.nichcy.org/ or calling 1-800-695-0285. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has links to information for families at www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/resources/familyresources.htm. If there is a problem, it is very important to get your child help as soon as possible.

How America's public schools keep kids in poverty | Kandice Sumner
 
13:51
Why should a good education be exclusive to rich kids? Schools in low-income neighborhoods across the US, specifically in communities of color, lack resources that are standard at wealthier schools -- things like musical instruments, new books, healthy school lunches and soccer fields -- and this has a real impact on the potential of students. Kandice Sumner sees the disparity every day in her classroom in Boston. In this inspiring talk, she asks us to face facts -- and change them.

Education in India: Are students failing or the system?! | Sonam Wangchuk | TEDxGateway
 
11:22
In this talk, Sonam Wangchuk shares his experience of bringing education reforms in the trans-Himalayan region of Ladakh, India. Sonam Wangchuk is the founder of Students' Educational & Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL). While he was doing his mechanical engineering at NIT Srinagar he understood the hardships faced by the Ladakhi students in the government schools; 95% of them were failing in their matric exams every year. Once he finished his graduation, he went back to Ladakh and started SECMOL together with some like-minded youth. After initially starting with coaching classes to help matric students, they soon realized that for a lasting solution they needed to bring reforms in the village primary schools. So they launched an education reform movement in collaboration with the government. Within seven years the results went up from 5% to 55%. Today it stands at 75%. For those who still failed, they set up a very special and innovative school which has produced many inspiring stories.

NYC Dept. of Education and ACS Intrusion
 
28:46
Donations for Family Law Attorney: paypal.me/Kcolon0810 After the June 23, 2016 initial eligibility meeting, Ms.Colonk was informed that her sons's special education case would be close. She did not agree that her child was speech and language impaired. She did not see any indication that her son was speech impaired, mute or non-verbal. She provided the PS 083 a detailed letter about the inappropriateness of the classification. As a result, she was told that the special education case was closed on June 27, 2016 and was provided with educational records reiterating the June 27, 2016 case closure. For 18 months Ms. Colonk believed her son's special education case was closed until January 03, 2018 when her son had been transferred to PS 155, a different school in district 4. It was then that the parent realize the severity of the situation as she unexpectedly experience intrusion. Why would the NYC DOE refused to provide certified and delegated documents in family court that would illustrate the parent was told the case was closed in June 2016? Is it Ever Acceptable for an Educational Agency to violate parental rights?
