Les livres et la lecture, toujours plus embarrassants pour les jeunes

Les livres et la #lecture, toujours plus embarrassants pour les jeunes
http://www.actualitte.com/international/les-livres-et-la-lecture-toujours-plus-embarrassants-pour-les-jeunes-454

Voilà des années que la lecture a perdu de sa cool attitude, et les études se suivent, malheureusement, et se ressemblent sur le sujet. La dernière en date, de la Britannique National Literacy Trust auprès de 34.910 jeunes de 16 ans, fin 2012, n’est guère plus encourageante. Définitivement, pour les djeuns, la lecture n’est pas cool. Voire, embarrassante...(Permalink)

Les parents ne comprennent pas (Educavox)

Les parents ne comprennent pas (Educavox)
http://www.educavox.fr/editorial/article/les-parents-ne-comprennent-pas

En matière d’éducation, l’opinion publique est profondément conservatrice. Personne n’exige de mettre des diligences sur les rails du TGV quand celui-ci multiplie les retards ou les pannes, mais pour l’école, on conçoit parfaitement qu’il faille revenir aux moulins à vent pour garantir la production de farine.

Dans un débat sur France 2 en 2005, le ministre de Robien avec lequel j’avais quelque problème, me rappelait qu’un sondage indiquait que 84% des parents consultés approuvaient sa volonté d’imposer le « retour au b-a ba » dans toutes les écoles de France. […] Pourtant, dans ce domaine, personne ne peut dire comment il a appris à lire, car il y a tellement de facteurs, d’interactions, de stimuli, de découvertes dans un tel apprentissage qu’il est impossible de déterminer objectivement les facteurs les plus forts.

Comment peut-il en être autrement ? Les médias, aux mains de ceux qui ont réussi, sont massivement conservateurs quand ils ne sont pas manipulateurs en plus. Le domaine des apprentissages est celui sur lequel les gens sont le moins informés, tout en pensant qu’ils savent puisqu’ils sont allés à l’école. Les lobbies réactionnaires ont donc un impact terrible. La nostalgie est un frein naturel puissant pour la pensée…

On a pu penser que l’idée de refondation allait générer un grand débat national pour mobiliser les citoyens, la Nation, et réduire les paradoxes des représentations des familles sur l’école. On était en droit d’espérer une nouvelle définition des finalités et des contenus, une remise en cause des pratiques dominantes, et même des ruptures courageuses. Peut-être même aurait-on pu obtenir des consensus transcendant les clivages politiciens, sachant que les frontières du conservatisme ne correspondent pas à celle des partis.

Chris Mooney on the Science of Why We Deny Science...and Reality

Uploaded by BerkmanCenter on 3 Apr 2012

Chris Mooney, Host of Post of Inquiry, discusses motivated reasoning and the "Smart Idiots" effect: he rebuts the conventional wisdom that if you put good information and argument out there and teach the public how to critically think, they will have a clearer idea of what is "truth." More education actually leads to higher degree of partisan beliefs. Arguing for facts alone does not help; more education is not the key: the public denies science not necessarily because they are uneducated but because they think "their" science is better.

Hochgeladen von BerkmanCenter am 16.03.2012

Yochai Benkler tells four stories of how misinformation spreads, and is corrected (sometimes), online: the story of how the agenda around Wikileaks was set; the story of a national broadband strategy influenced by industry; the story of Obama's $200 million/day trip to India; and the story of a bipartisan internet piracy bill that took a left turn when the public got wind.

This week the Berkman Center and the Research Center for Information Law, St. Gallen released the latest study on the state of interoperability: “Breaking Down Digital Barriers.” This joint report follows the Roadmap to Open ICT Ecosystems released in 2005, as it navigates the nuanced territory of consumer, corporate, and governmental interests in the benefits and roadblocks to interoperable ICT systems.

The report and accompanying case studies on DRM-protected music, Digital Identity, and Mashups are available for download on the project website. The presentation and discussion of the report and its findings, took place in Washington, DC. Runtime: 01:04:20

Justin Reich, Berkman Center Fellow

Will Free Benefit the Rich? How Free and Open Education Might Widen Digital Divides (permalink - Berkman Center)

Tuesday, Janary 17, 2012

The explosion of open education content resources and freely available collaboration and media production platforms represents one of the most exciting emerging trends in education. These tools create unprecedented opportunities for teachers to design and personalize curriculum and to give students opportunities to collaborate, publish, and take responsibility for their own learning.  Many education technology and open education advocates hope that the widespread availability of free resources and platforms will disproportionately benefit disadvantaged students, by making technology resources broadly available that were once only available to affluent students. It is possible, however, that affluent schools and students have a greater capacity to take up new innovations, even free ones, and so new tools and resources that appear in the ecology of education will widen rather than ameliorate digital divides. In this presentation, we will examine evidence for both the "tech as equalizer" and "tech as accelerator of digital divides" hypotheses, and we will examine technology innovations and interventions that specifically target learners with the most needs. A lively discussion will follow to consider how educators, technologists, and policymakers can address issues of educational digital inequalities in their work. An introduction to these issues can be found in this video op-ed.

About Justin

I’m a doctoral student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a Fellow at the Berkman Center for the Internet and Society. I’m the project manager for the Distributed Collaborative Learning Community, a Hewlett Foundation funded initiative to study issues of excellence, equity and analytics in the use of social technologies in K-12 settings.

I’m also the co-director of EdTechTeacher, a social venture that provides professional learning services to schools and teachers. Our mission is to help educators leverage technology to create student-centered, inquiry-based learning environments. We also publish the Best of History Web Sites and Teaching History with Technology.

Fundamentally, I’m motivated by the belief that young people are tremendously capable, and we need to develop educational systems that tap their energy, creativity, drive and talent.

Personally, I’m a husband and father and an avid adventurer and traveler. I have a long association with Camp Chewonki.

Cooperatives: A Counterpoint to Corporatism - Pt.1: Professor Stefano Zamagni on Vimeo | ~ 45 minutes

Interview with Professor Stefano Zamagni, Economic Professor from the University of Bologna- the oldest university in Europe. He is also an adjunct professor at John Hopkins University.

He discusses his concept of reciprocity and the role of Co-operatives as sustainable and stable alternatives to the vagaries of unsustainable market capitalism.

“Professor Zamagni of the University of Bologna outlined his views on the limitations of seeing the world's various activities in a narrow market perspective, asserting the importance of reciprocity as a principle and the value of cooperatives which quite naturally adhere to a longer term reciprocal view.” (Bob Williams, Vancity)

..........................................
oAnth

3 principles of economics:

a) exchange of equivalent - price
b) redistribution - no exclusion of any market participant
c) reciprocity - to generate trust and social value - solidarity

Barbara van Schewick on Internet Architecture and Innovation [AUDIO]


Barbara van Schewick—Associate Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, an Associate Professor (by courtesy) of Electrical Engineering at Stanford’s Department of Electrical Engineering and the Director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society—discusses her new book, Internet Architecture and Innovation.

This book analyzes how the Internet’s internal structure, or architecture, has fostered innovation in the past; why this engine of innovation is under threat; why the “market” alone won’t protect Internet innovation; and which features of the Internet’s architecture we need to preserve so that the Internet continues to serve as an engine of innovation in the future. Whether you are tired of or confused by the network neutrality debate, or simply wondering what is at stake, van Schewick’s talk is refreshing and illuminating.
