Math isn’t hard, it’s a language | Randy Palisoc | TEDxManhattanBeach

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is 26% proficiency in math acceptable to you? That’s the question teacher and Synergy Academies Founder Dr. Randy Palisoc asks the TEDxManhattanBeach audience. With only 26% of U.S. twelfth graders proficient in mathematics, Randy shares his solution: teach math as a language. Putting words back into math lessons enables even the youngest school-age minds to grasp complex concepts, such as fractions, that are traditionally thought of as abstract and difficult to understand. In his stunningly simple and effective approach, math no longer creates problems for kids but solves them. Randy Palisoc is a passionate educator, known for making math easy. A founder of the five-time national award winning Synergy Academies, Randy is proud to identify Synergy as an “in spite of” school. In spite of the fact that its students were disadvantaged and in spite of the fact that it did not have its own facility and had to pack up its classrooms every single week, his school was the first and only elementary school in South Los Angeles to ever win the National Blue Ribbon Award, and was named the #1 Urban Elementary School in America in 2013. Seeking a broader impact, Randy left Synergy this year to start Ironbox Education. One of the ways he believes we can dramatically improve America’s schools is by doing a better job teaching math to our students in a way that makes sense to them. Randy believes implementing a few changes in the way we approach math will give students the confidence and thinking skills to be more competitive in a global economy.

Tim Leberecht: 3 ways to (usefully) lose control of your brand

Your body language may shape who you are | Amy Cuddy

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success. (Note: Some of the findings presented in this talk have been referenced in an ongoing debate among social scientists about robustness and reproducibility.

Achieving education for all in Vietnam

Transcript Vietnam made enormous progress in developing its education system in recent years, but still faced challenges in rural and remote areas, particularly in meeting the needs of disadvantaged children-poor kids, street kids, kids with disabilities, and kids from ethnic minorities. Some children had to walk two to three kilometres along steep mountain paths just to get to school. It’s no surprise that some never got there and others gave up along the way. La Thi Huyen: “My name is La Thi Huyen, I’m a new teacher. I graduated this year. It’s my first full year teaching. One of the biggest difficulties I face in teaching these children is that all of them are from ethnic minorities and they don’t speak Vietnamese very fluently.” As part of its priority theme to secure a future for children and youth, CIDA, along with other donors, including the World Bank, worked with the Government of Vietnam for seven years to improve access to primary school for disadvantaged children such as these-some 2.7 million or 27 percent of all students in Vietnam-and to improve the quality of education in 40 poor provinces. Together, they: Provided more than 3 million textbooks to students, as well as school supplies, and in some cases shoes and uniforms Built more than 16,000 new schools Trained more than 312,865 teachers and 7,026 teacher’s aides La Thi Huyen: “I have learned how teachers should interact with children, how we should write on the boards. I apply some teaching methods that I learned to make it easier for my students to learn.” The results? By the end of 2010: Primary school enrolment increased from 80 percent to 99 percent Primary school completion rates increased from 72 percent to 94 percent Drop-out rates fell from 12 percent to 2.5 percent More than 2.7 million students now have a more hopeful future, and Vietnam is closer to achieving universal primary education for all-one of the Millennium Development Goals agreed to by the world’s leaders in 2000.

Waldorf School Education

Support our channel with a small donation at http://www.patreon.com/sprouts Waldorf education is based on the principles of Anthroposophy by Rudolf Steiner. Rudolf Steiner founded the first school in 1919 Stuttgart Germany to educate the children of the factory workers from the Waldorf Astoria Zigaretten Fabrik – hence the name. All kids, independent of social status or talent received the same instruction, which made the school a pioneer of social justice in education. The goal of a Waldorf education is to develop free, but morally responsible individuals equipped with a high degree of social competence and creative capabilities. Factual knowledge, homework and tests scores receive less attention. Storytelling and experimentation are the main method of instruction, textbooks are being avoided. Over the twelve-year curriculum, students learn math, literature, history and science as well as a wide variety of arts and hands-on skills. Elementary students paint, knit, weave and sculpt with wax. Older ones make patterns, books, pottery and sculpt in stone. Everybody learns to do music. First all play the flute, then some play string instruments and others join the choir. Students play non-competitive games and learn to dance eurhythmy. They do organic farming and learn two foreign languages, which in the first years are taught through songs, storytelling and conversations. In grade 8 and 12 the entire class develops a classical drama which they perform in front of their parents and friends. Waldorf uses a unique project based approach to almost all main academic subjects. Instead of repetitive schedules, a specific subject, such as history, math, science or even gardening dominates the first two hours in the morning for a period of 4-6 weeks. After that, a new subject gets the main focus. Steiner also invented an experiential approach to science whereby students observe and later describe scientific concepts in their own words and drawings rather than learning about them in a textbook first. Waldorf schools therefore consider computers useful to children only in their teens, after they have mastered fundamental, time-honored ways of discovering information and learning. In the spirit of personal development and empathy, competition and grades are being avoided. Teachers instead assess the student’s individual growth of character. Tests scores and grades are only slowly introduced to older students as they prepare for college and entrance exams. Today there are over a thousand Waldorf schools in 60 countries, making it one of the largest independent school movements. Waldorf has become a recognised educational theory in Europe and its schools have received state funding.

Dean’s Lecture Series 2017 – Opportunities and obstacles for STEM education

Although the acronym STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) has gained substantial traction around the globe in the last decade, its educational implication is much debated. Interpretations of STEM education differ in their emphases, for instance, on interdisciplinarity or integration, on developing skills such as critical thinking or creativity, or on introducing contemporary content (e.g., robotics, virtual reality). In any case, there is an expectation that STEM education will boost student interest and achievement, and that pursuing STEM studies will enhance students’ employability. Yet, implementation of STEM education poses serious challenges for schools and teachers in terms of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and organisation. This presentation will explore the longitudinal research needed to determine the impact of STEM education on students, teachers and schools. Professor Jan van Driel A former chemistry teacher, Professor van Driel has a PhD in chemical education from Utrecht University in the Netherlands. He was a teacher trainer and educational consultant at Delft University of Technology, before joining Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching in 1995. He went on to become the Professor of Science Education in 2006 and Director of ICLON, Leiden University, before moving to Australia in 2016 to become the Melbourne Graduate School of Education’s inaugural Professor of Science Education. A world leading scholar, Professor van Driel’s work is influential in informing the professional development of science teachers and he has done extensive research in the domains of teaching, teaching education and higher education. He is co-editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Science Education and was Vice-President of the Netherlands Educational Research Association from 2001-2009. Until recently Professor van Driel was chair of the Interuniversity Centre for Teacher Education and secretary of the board of the Technasium Foundation (Netherlands).

Education Is a System of Indoctrination of the Young – Noam Chomsky

Chomsky has been known to vigorously defend and debate his views and opinions, in philosophy, linguistics, and politics. More Chomsky: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=U… He has had notable debates with Jean Piaget, Michel Foucault, William F. Buckley, Jr., Christopher Hitchens, George Lakoff, Richard Perle, Hilary Putnam, Willard Quine, and Alan Dershowitz, to name a few. In response to his speaking style being criticized as boring, Chomsky said that “I’m a boring speaker and I like it that way…. I doubt that people are attracted to whatever the persona is….

Starting Early: LIGO Science & the Future Astrophysicist | Zsuzsa Marka | TEDxYouth@BrowningSchool

Ms. Márka’s main contribution is leading the manufacturing and testing of a key subsystem, the timing system for the LIGO detectors. On September 14, 2015, the LIGO detectors observed that three solar masses of energy had radiated away from merging black holes, in the form of gravitational waves. Using a laser interferometer, which splits a single beam into two that eventually rejoin, LIGO was able to detect a small displacement from the normal wave. This displacement indicated the presence of a gravitational-wave. Zsuzsa Marka is an experimental physicist at Columbia University. She works on the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory) project, the experiment that a year ago announced the discovery of gravitational-waves from a pair of merging black holes. Her main contribution is leading the manufacturing and testing of a key subsystem, the timing system, for the LIGO detectors, and she also leads the timing diagnostics studies for the collaboration. Beyond instrumentation, she also works with members of the Columbia Experimental Gravity group on various aspects of gravitational-wave astrophysics.

Opposition party lawmakers tried to shoot down the education minister nominee,… calling him unfit for the position over allegations that he had plagiarized his research papers,… to which Kim had responded by saying he had done nothing to be ashamed of. Answering policy related questions,… the former education superintendent for Gyeonggi-do Province said he would improve equality in education,… and said he’ll monitor the increasingly competitive educational system once sworn in. Meanwhile, after a relatively smooth confirmation hearing process, lawmakers adopted a hearing report on the unification minister nominee Cho Myoung-gyon, . During the Q&A session, Cho told lawmakers that Seoul will respond strongly to Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile provocations,… while working to re-establish dialogue between the two Koreas. Also during the hearing, Cho said that Seoul needs to craft bold and practical ways to resolve the North’s nuclear issue. These comments come as President Moon had expressed that he would seek a dual-track approach towards denuclearizing North Korea. Cho also said Seoul needs to work on re-opening the now-closed Kaesong Industrial Complex,… once progress has been made towards North Korea’s denuclearization. The unification minister nominee had previously played a part in opening the jointly-run complex during his time as a presidential secretary under the Roh Moo-hyun administration. Next to face the lawmakers questions is labor minister nominee Cho Dae-yeop, who has his confirmation hearing scheduled for Friday. Shin Se-min, Arirang News.

Education Q&A with OECD’s Andreas Schleicher

OECD Acting Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills, Andreas Schleicher answers crowdsourced questions for the Global Education and Skills Forum, 2014. Don’t miss new Big Think videos!  Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Find out more about the Global Education & Skills Forum: http://www.educationandskillsforum.org Questions: — Will we ever see an international assessment that tracks student learning across multiple years? — Do parents have an impact on student success? — Is there a risk that good PISA scores might lead to complacency? — Is the humanistic approach to evaluation an important indicator? Transcript – We need to become better at tracking student learning growths not at just seeing where students are at any point in time but also seeing how they actually progress in their learning pathways. And actually a lot is happening in that field. In fact, the PISA assessment as we have it currently focusing on 15 year olds is looking into expanding to lower grades so that we can actually get at least at the synthetic level some sense of the progress that is being made in education raising quality, improving equity and also value for money. The PISA data show that parents have a very significant influence on the success of their children. We see that where parents have a greater expectations on education, where parents are more closely involved in the education of their children results are significantly better. And it’s not only in terms of the academic performance of students but it’s also in terms of their attitudes toward learning, their enjoyment of learning. Their persistence when things get tough in school. So parental involvement is very important. We also see that that parental involvement isn’t about having an academic degree as a parent or spending hours of time on homework. It’s really the interest parents show for the education of their children. For example, when parents regularly ask their children, you know, “How was school today? What did go wrong?” We can see those kids actually having a significantly higher performance at school than kids — even kids from wealthy neighborhoods where parents do not show that level of engagement. So a very important ingredient for success is to make parents part of the equation. If you do well you might think you don’t need to improve. But, in fact, the PISA data do not lend much evidence to this. In fact, some of the most rapidly improving systems are some of the best performing systems. They want to move from good to great. They’re actually seeing, you know, how is the labor demand shaping up in the future. What are the kind of knowledge and skills that we need to improve on? I’ll give you an example. You can look at Singapore. Singapore has always done well on math and science tests. But Singaporean educators have not been satisfied with this. They’re looking to how can we strengthen students ways of thinking, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving. Students ways of working, collaboration, teamwork and so on. So the education system is actually looking towards moving forward. Complacency is a risk but we do actually see very encouraging signals that improvement is taking place at every part of the system. You cannot improve what you can’t measure. So the measurement framework is really, really critically important. But we also do see incentives not only for our low performers to catch up but also for the strong performers to move forward further. It was a bit long? A humanistic perspective is very important to evaluating educational results. In fact, we need to get away from looking at education with a single perspective. Evaluation can only take part place in a framework of multiple kinds of perspectives. Looking at test data from students is one perspective. Looking at teachers views on student performance. Looking at other students — it’s this kind of multiplicity of instruments that actually help us improve education. And that’s true even at the level of teachers, you know. You can evaluate teachers on the basis of student learning outcomes. This is one perspective. But you also need to bring in other perspectives that value the broader responsibilities that teachers have. So looking at outcomes from multiple perspectives including these kind of quality — qualitative outlook is very, very important. Directed and Produced by Jonathan Fowler

Education: It Matters More to Health Than Ever Before

Did you know that your years of education can affect how long and how well you will live? Americans with fewer years of education have poorer health and shorter lives, and that has never been more true than today. In fact, since the 1990s, life expectancy has decreased for people without a high school education. Education is important not only for higher paying jobs and economic productivity, but also for saving lives and saving dollars. Created by the VCU Center on Society and Health with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this video is part of the Education and Health Initiative, a larger project aiming to increase awareness and understanding of the important connections between education and health.

Do you *really* love your child?: Dale Stephens at TEDxEastsidePrep

At 20, Dale Stephens founded UnCollege.org because we’re paying too much for college and learning too little. It’s no secret that college doesn’t prepare students for the real world. Student loan debt recently eclipsed credit card debt for the first time in history and now tops 1 trillion dollars. And the throngs of unemployed graduates chasing the same jobs makes us wonder whether there’s a better way to “make it” in today’s marketplace. There is—and Dale Stephens is proof of that. In Hacking Your Education, Stephens speaks to a new culture of “hackademics” who think college diplomas are antiquated. Hackademics abandon society’s linear path to success and bend institutions to fit their own reality. Stephens shows how he and dozens of others have hacked their education, and how you can too. You don’t need to be a genius or especially motivated to succeed outside school. The real requirements are much simpler: curiosity, confidence, and grit. Stephens is a sought-after education expert appearing on major news networks including CNN, ABC, NPR, CBS, Fox, and TechCrunch. His work has been covered by the New York Times and New York Magazine to Fast Company and Forbes. He has spoken around the world at high-profile events, from debating Vivek Wadhwa onstage at TED 2012 to lecturing at the New York Times to speaking to C-level executives at NBC Universal. He works frequently with universities who realize their model of education must change to survive in the 21st century. In May 2011 Stephens was selected out of hundreds of individuals around the world as a Thiel Fellow, a program recognizing the top twenty-four entrepreneurs around the world under the age of twenty. In addition to leading UnCollege, Stephens advises education and technology companies. Rejected for being young or inexperienced, he has risen above skepticism to do what many said he couldn’t. Because he bridges the gap between teens and adults, he doesn’t just relate to both but shares their experiences, fears, and challenges. Stephens’ energetic, informative and down-to-earth presentations draw on his own experience to address generation-specific issues most relevant to people in their 10s, 20s, and 30s.

ISTE 2016 EdTekTalks | Dr. Alex Thornton provides strategies for boosting digital health & wellness

Dr. Alex Thornton taught for seven years in Canada and Boston before shifting his focus to Educational Leadership. As Doctor of Education at RTSG Neuroscience, he brings his expertise in education and school program implementation to the consulting firm’s education related projects and studies. RTSG creates large scale interventions that use exercise to benefit groups of people. Dr. Thornton works in schools to maximize the benefits of physical education. His work has shown that, if done correctly, PE can improve academic performance in other subjects. He also collaborates closely with other educators, researchers and renowned thinkers to bring findings from sleep, nutrition, play, and Neuro/Biofeedback research to educational and organizational settings. His goal is to incorporate findings from neuropsychology into educational practice. Dr. Thornton joined us at the ISTE 2016 Conference EdTekTalks to share his findings on using exercise to change school cultures and optimize student learning. Using EEG and ERP data, he outlined in his talk the ways that exercise promotes attention and brain growth. Just a couple minutes of exercise can help students focus better and retain more information. The other side of the coin, however, is proper sleep. Memory is consolidated during sleep, and as students are getting less sleep than they did in the past—partly due to constant access to the Internet, online games, etc.—they are struggling harder to learn and retain information. Technology, says Thornton, interferes with both exercise and sleep, but also offers ideas and solutions to get more exercise and sleep. For educators and parents, finding the right balance is key to helping students do their best learning.

Starr Sackstein Keynote MassCUE and MASCD Spring Leadership Conference 2017

Starr Sackstein is a nationally board certified teacher who has taught in the NYC public school system for 15 years. Sackstein has written books about assessment reform and student empowerment as well as presenting a TEDx talk about her journey to give up grades. Starr’s Presentation: Empower Students by Engaging them in the Assessment Process Every child has the right to engage in their learning starting from their mistakes straight through to their successes. We must give students the language they need to adequately co-construct and design learning opportunities and then express their own progress and growth in a meaningful way. Students certainly don’t need grades to communicate what they know and can do, they just need the opportunity to share in their own words in the language of the standards to express strengths and challenges. Leveraging Technology to Empower the Whole Child #MALeads17 MassCUE (Massachusetts Computer Using Educators) and MASCD (Massachusetts Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) have joined forces to bring together classroom and educational leaders for a one-day event of powerful presentations, workshops, hands-on sessions, and informal gatherings to address the critical issues of education. Both organizations believe that each child, in each school, in each of our communities deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Thus, this year we will focus on how leaders can leverage technology to reach the whole child.

Israel High Tech News .Israeli startup Interlude raises $ 50 -$ 100 Millions , from Sony

Israel High Tech News .Israeli startup Interlude raises $ 50 -$ 100 Millions , from Sony . Last week Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) announced that it had invested in Israeli startup Interlude. No financial details were disclosed but CEO and cofounder Yoni Bloch has said, “We are talking about tens of millions of dollars.” With offices in New York and Tel Aviv, Interlude is a media and technology company that is pioneering a new kind of video that responds to a person’s emotions and interests. The company has raised $38.2 million to date including an $18.2 million financing round in December 2015 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Warner Music Group, Samsung, Sequoia Capital and Intel Capital. The company, which has developed the Eko interactive storytelling platform, has 60 employees, half of them in Israel. Bloch, 34, began his musical career when he was 21. He has recorded three albums and produced albums for other singers and even managed a stint as a guest judge on the Israeli TV talent show A Star is Born. Then in 2009 he decided to pursue a career in high-tech and he founded Interlude with CTO Tal Zubalsky and Barak Feldman. The Eko platform changes audience passivity by enabling creators to easily script and craft stories that can be shaped by the viewer based on a range of options and their preferences. Bloch said, “This is a language that most young producers have been waiting for. They have been looking for a new language and through our technology they can realize it.” Globes: What is the aim of the cooperation with Sony? Bloch, “To produce interactive series that exploit technology to tell a story that couldn’t be told in a linear way.” What is new at the company since your last financing round? “The company has grown particularly on the technology side. Our videos play on iPhones and Androids and through virtual reality. Our most recent strategic fund raising ensures that the world’s best quality content producers work and invest in content on our medium.”

Engaging Students in Science with Art, Physics and Literature by Arthur Eisenkraft

Arthur Eisenkraft speaks on Engaging Students in Science with Art, Physics and Literature, as part of the Azim Premji University Public Lecture series January 7, 2014 Arthur Eisenkraft, Distinguished Professor of Science Education, Professor of Physics Director, Center of Science and Math in Context (COSMIC) University of Massachusetts Boston Boston, MA, USA About the Talk For some students, science concepts are fascinating from the outset and the mathematics is a source of beauty. Other students need to enter the world of science through their other interests including sports, transportation, medicine, communications and technology. All students can benefit from an approach that uses art and literature to propel an understanding of physics. Professor Eisenkraft will discuss how working with an artist and drawing from literature has led to a unique approach to engaging students in physics. About the Speaker Arthur Eisenkraft, PhD, is one of America’s leading science educators. For 25 years, he taught high school physics and was a 6-12 science coordinator. He is past president of the National Science Teacher Association and is currently chair of the Science Academic Advisory Committee of the College Board. He is project director of the NSF-supported Active Physics curriculum project that is introducing physics instruction for the first time to all students and leading a similar effort with Active Chemistry. He is chair and co-creator of the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision Awards, involving 15,000 students annually.

Scott Hebert on Gamification in the Classroom

“There is an engagement crisis in school.” Scott Hebert, a new teacher, in a new school, in a new community, realized there was a problem with the way students were struggling to pay attention in class. He went from being a fourth grade phys ed teacher to being a eighth grade sciences and technologies teacher. The differences in the classrooms were alarming. The younger grade was full of children who were enthusiastic and engaged during class. The new class was filled with older students struggling to pay attention and hold onto the information being given to them. Scott realized his class time was too much of him talking, and too little of the kids doing. So, he gamified. Read more at www.TeacherTechTrials.com

ECO15 London: Impact VC Panel Solarkiosk ClearlySo DOEN Foundation SET Ventures

For the first time, we did a panel about the intersection of impact investing and venture capital at ECO15 London as we believe it is a very important topic and a great opportunity for startups to tap into more sources of capital. A lively discussion emerged between Andreas Spiess (Solarkiosk), Mike Mompi (ClearlySo), Daan Lameris (DOEN Foundation) and Rene Savelsberg (SET Ventures). Most people agree that impact investing is about supporting startups that create environmental, social and economic impact in parallel. Still, there are different personal and and corporate preferences when it comes to putting an impact investing strategy into practice. Some entrepreneurs and investors focus on social impact while others want to create impact by supporting founders in the early stage when less fundraising alternatives are available as the risk is still too high. Agreement was reached that scale plays an important role as we want to create big impact with big startups. At any rate, impact investors and financially driven VCs may actually complement one another very well as they bring different values and skill sets to the table. The founders just have to make sure that values are aligned and the same growth strategy is supported by all investors.

Australian entrepreneur Nick Jenkins is interviewed by experienced venture partner Terry Hilsberg about his lessons learned whilst scaling his start-up in China. Nick’s start-up Language Confidence automates tutoring and spoken assessment with artificial intelligence driven technology. In this clip Nick talks about his background, and why he dropped out of university to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams. He goes on to talk about the nascent stages of his start-up, experiences with the muru-D accelerator program and reasoning behind location choice. Nick also explains the scope of the education market in China, his move from a B2C to B2B model, networking strategies in Chinese business culture, deals currently in negotiation, and developing a competitive differentiation. Some questions answered include: Why did you move to China rather than stay in the Sydney (Muru-D) accelerator? Is there a competitive tension in the Chinese business partnerships (comprising of mainly 5-6 major players)? How do you negotiate a fair deal in China? What personal challenges did you face in China? What advice would you give for entrepreneurs who don’t speak Chinese and want to enter the Chinese market?
