    Education For Whom and For What?

    1:59:28

    Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, Education: For Whom and For What? featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session.

    Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

    Education for Death: The Making of the Nazi - WW2 Animated Propaganda Film by Walt Disney

    10:09

    Warning! Don't let your kids watch this cartoon, it was made for adults only.

    This Film is an animated propaganda short film produced by Walt Disney and directed by Clyde Geronimi. It was released when Disney was under a U.S. government contract to produc 32 animated shorts from 1941--1945. These wartime propaganda films saved the studio from bankruptcy.

    The film features the story of little Hans, a boy born and raised in Hitler's Nazi Germany. He's brainwashed into becoming a Nazi, and ultimately dies at the battlefield, as thousands of his fellow Germans did. His attitude about the value of human life degrades as he is exposed to Hitler Youth and other Nazi organizations and attitudes.

    The short is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by American author Gregor Ziemer. The dialogue of the characters is in German, neither subtitled nor directly translated by Art Smith's English language narration.

    Plot:
    At the beginning of the film, a German couple prove to a Nazi supreme judge that they are of pure Aryan blood and agree to give their son, whom they name Hans at the approval of the judge, into the service of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. They are given a copy of Mein Kampf by the judge as a reward for their service to Hitler; their passport contains spaces for 12 more children (a hint that the couple is expected to produce a large family for the Fatherland).

    This is followed by the only extended comical section of the cartoon, the tone of which is very light compared to the rest of the film. The audience is told that as Hans grows up, he hears a distorted version of Sleeping Beauty depicting Hitler as the knight in shining armor rescuing Sleeping Beauty, an obese Valkyrie representing Germany, from a wicked witch, representing democracy. (The narrator sarcastically comments that the moral of this story seems to be that Hitler got Germany on her feet, climbed onto the saddle, and took her for a ride.) Thanks to this kind of distorted children's story, Hans becomes fascinated with Hitler as he and the rest of the younger members of the Hitler Youth give a portrait of him dressed as a knight the Hitler salute.

    In the following segment, the audience sees Hans sick and bedridden. His mother prays for him, knowing it will only be a matter of time before the authorities come and take him away to serve Hitler. A Nazi officer bangs on the door to take Hans away, but his mother says he is sick and needs care. The officer orders her to heal her son quickly and have him ready to leave, implying if Hans does not get well, he will be euthanized. He orders her not to do anything more to him that will cause him to lose heart and be weak, explaining that a soldier must show no emotion, mercy or feelings whatsoever. Hans eventually recovers and resumes his education in a school classroom, where Hans and the rest of his classmates all in Hitlerjugend uniforms, after giving portraits of Hitler, Hermann Göring and Joseph Goebbels the Hitler salute, watch as the teacher draws a cartoon on the blackboard of a rabbit being eaten by a fox, prompting Hans to feel sorry for the rabbit. The teacher, furious over the remark, orders Hans to sit in the corner wearing a dunce cap. As Hans sits in the corner as punishment, he hears the rest of the classmates correctly interpret the cartoon as weakness has no place in a soldier and the strong shall rule the weak. This sparks Hans to recant his remark, and agrees that the weak must be destroyed.

    Hans then takes part in a book-burning crusade, burning any books that oppose Hitler, replacing the Bible with Mein Kampf and the crucifix with a Nazi sword, and burning a Catholic Church. Hans then spends the next several years Marching and heiling, heiling and marching! until he reaches his teens (wearing a uniform similar to that of the Sturmabteilung) still marching and heiling until he becomes an adult or Good Nazi (now in Wehrmacht uniform) embroiled in hatred towards anyone else who opposes Hitler, seeing nothing but what the party wants him to see, saying nothing but what the party wants him to say, and doing no more than the party wants him to do.

    How an Idiot Became an Actuary…

    6:15

    And why today’s education is failing people.

    At a recent Heavy Chef event held in Johannesburg, Dr Taddy Blecher, a pioneer of the free higher education movement in SA, spoke about his experiences as a student. Blecher, who now heads up the Maharishi Institute, explained to Adlip how education is changing, and how his journey has galvanised him to make a difference…



    “The future of education is around this concept of mass personalisation, which is about education getting down to the level of every individual (their wants, needs, skills, abilities, talent, etc)…and education does not do that today.”

    In his view, with huge class numbers and overworked teachers, children in classes are at different levels.

    “So we all go through this old fashioned, traditional schooling system that really never talks to any of us,” adds Blecher.

    As a result, many kids get very little from education, he says, which ultimately sets them back for life.

    “The revolution that’s happening in education is both the Digital revolution (allowing individuals to learn at their own pace), and then also looking at methodologies to wake up the individual,” he explains. “The current education system is a total mismatch – it’s not really teaching people how to think or create or anything else that people need to be successful in the 21st century…”

    Blecher uses himself as a classic example of this. As an actuarial science student at Wits University, he barely scraped through his first three years of the degree - failing exams along the way. At some point, his mom was diagnosed with liver cancer, and was only given three months to live.

    “She completely cured herself…she turned to alternative [treatments]. Everything the doctors told her to do, she didn’t do,” he says.

    shutterstock_143761402-min

    One thing Blecher picked up from this was the art of meditation, which he says transformed how his mind worked.

    “I went from not being able to concentrate at all, to being able to study for 14 hours on end,” he explains. “My mind was alive…”

    He went on to take the rest of his actuarial exams (taking six in one year, which was unheard of), passed them all, and even got the top Honours mark in the country.

    “My professor came to me and said, how did an idiot like you become an actuary?”

    Blecher notes that the experience is part of why he stayed in the country.

    “I realised that there are other kids out there for whom education just doesn’t talk to them…it loses everybody. So how do we revolutionise education, so that it can talk to everybody? Everybody is walking around with a mind, and they do not have the key to unlock their potential…

    How private schools are serving the poorest: Pauline Dixon at TEDxGlasgow

    15:30

    Seminal research in the slums and shanty towns of Asia and Africa shows not only the numbers of low-cost private schools around the world but why, how and by whom they are run and patronised. Dr. Pauline Dixon looks at parental choice, the comparison between government and low-cost private schools as well as innovative initiatives that are currently underway in India and Ghana such as vouchers and chains of private schools. The talk also considers what the wider world can learn from this market success story.

    More About Pauline...

    Dr. Pauline Dixon is a senior lecturer in International Development and Education at Newcastle University in the North East of England. She is Research Director of the E.G. West Centre at the university and Degree Programme Director of the Masters in International Development and Education. She lectures in economics, education policy and quantitative methods.

    Dr Dixon's research in India, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, China, and Tunisia, investigates education for the poorest living in slums and shanty towns. She is also researching education in conflict zones focusing on Liberia, South Sudan and Sierra Leone as well as considering the advantages chains of private unaided schools have owing to their economies of scale.

    She works as an advisor and external researcher with the English-based international charity Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) in Delhi, India. She has helped to set up an education voucher programme as well as introduce improvements in quality to both government and private schools operating in the slum of Shahdara, East Delhi, through the use of synthetic phonics.

    Dr Dixon gained her PhD from Newcastle in 2003 which looked at the regulations private schools in the slums of Hyderabad, India, abide by from an Austrian economic perspective. The thesis described and analysed a case study of private schools catering for low-income families. The research was carried out in order to examine the regulatory regime under which private schools exist.

    Dr Dixon was International Research Coordinator on the John Templeton Project from 2003-2005, the Orient Global Project from 2007-2009 and is about to commence research, again funded by the John Templeton Foundation, concerning 'Education in Difficult Places' and conflict zones. This project will run until 2013. She is also interested in gifted and talented children living in slum areas in developing countries.

    Dr Dixon delivers keynote speeches and presentations around the world including at Capitol Hill, Washington D.C., USA, at Brown University, USA, as well as in Europe including Zurich, Liechtenstein, Durham, Glasgow, London, and Vienna. She has also presented the research findings to government officials in India and Africa. She is considered an expert in her field and has more than 35 publications in academic journals, monographs and book chapters. These include, most recently, more quantitative papers in the Journal of School Choice , School Effectiveness and School Improvement, Oxford Review of Education and Educational Management, Administration and Leadership.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Education for a Sustainable Future

    53:12

    Education For a Sustainable Future presents information on how today's practices in schools are socially unsustainable. The documentary film critically analyses what is considered socially relevant in a new education system which brings out the most potential in all of humanity whilst also detailing specific educational methods from a wide range of sources on how to nurture social skills, critical thinking techniques and a larger variety of important practices to positively reinforce from our earliest years onwards. It must be recognised that a sustainable education is one of the most critical components of any advanced society.

    Education For a Sustainable Future is an independent film production and has been uploaded online for free download and distribution. The views expressed in this documentary are not necessarily shared by the originators of source material presented.

    I would like to make use of this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude towards three people, without whom this would have never been possible - our school's Bursar and Local Manager, Rev. Alex P. Oommen, our physical education instructors Mr. Rony Varghese and Mr. Amal Joy Arukulasseril. Father Alex has always been a great mental and financial support for us. Rony Sir was willing to do anything for the completion of this project (even act, as a matter of fact). Amal sir has been a great support in the technical field. This short film won't ever have been possible if not for the three of you.

    In addition, I would like to say a word of thanks to every student and teacher of the Bishop Moore family. All of you literally boosted our spirits on the day of release, by calling it 'splendid' and 'amazing'. No words would be enough to thank you people. Thank you for giving us an unforgettable day!

    The Oxford Handbook of Deaf Studies, Language, and Education, Volume 1

    2:10

    Get your free audio book:

    The field of deaf studies, language, and education has grown dramatically over the past forty years. From work on the linguistics of sign language and parent-child interactions to analyses of school placement and the the mapping of brain function in deaf individuals, research across a range of disciplines has greatly expanded not just our knowledge of deafness and the deaf, but also the very origins of language, social interaction, and thinking. In this updated edition of the landmark original volume, a range of international experts present a comprehensive overview of the field of deaf studies, language, and education. Written for students, practitioners, and researchers, The Oxford Handbook of Deaf Studies, Language, and Education, Volume 1, is a uniquely ambitious work that has altered both the theoretical and applied landscapes. Pairing practical information with detailed analyses of what works, why, and for whom-all while banishing the paternalism that once dogged the field-this first of two volumes features specially-commissioned, updated essays on topics including: language and language development, hearing and speech perception, education, literacy, cognition, and the complex cultural, social, and psychological issues associated with deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. The range of these topics shows the current state of research and identifies the opportunites and challenges that lie ahead. Combining historical background, research, and strategies for teaching and service provision, the two-volume Oxford Handbook of Deaf Studies, Language, and Education stands as the benchmark reference work in the field of deaf studies.

    Teaching the Faith, Forming the Faithful: A Biblical Vision for Education in the Church

    1:56

    Get your free audio book:

    Why does the church teach? And what should it teach? In recent years, traditional Sunday school and education programs have declined in influence and effectiveness. Education in the church is often sidelined by other competing priorities, and our efforts become haphazard and random.as a result, many Christians have not learned the fundamental doctrinal content of the faith. As a response, a growing number of church ministries have moved toward an emphasis on Christian spiritual formation. But churches must hold together education and formation, the teaching of the faith and the forming of the faithful.in this comprehensive text, Gary Parrett and Steve Kang attend to both the content and process of educational and formational ministries. They set forth a thoroughly biblical vision for intentional teaching of the Christian faith, with a holistic concern for what and whom is taught as well as how and why.fully apprised of developments in educational theory and pedagogy, Parrett and Kang propose a core curriculum for recovering the full scope of Christian proclamation and reinvigorating the teaching ministry of the church. Their vision has implications not merely for catechesis, but for preaching, worship, children's and youth ministry, and much more.the body of Christ can become all that God intends it to be, through intentional practices that foster personal and corporate formation. Here is guidance for individuals and congregations on that journey.

    DANCE Talk: MOOClets - A Framework for Enhancing and Personalizing Online Education

    50:20

    The fifth talk in our DANCE talk series will be given by Joseph Jay Williams from HarvardX. He will be speaking about MOOClets - A Framework for Enhancing and Personalizing Online Education.
    As usual, you will have the opportunity to submit questions during the talk that will be discussed with the speaker after the presentation.

    Abstract:
    The formalism of a MOOClet provides a Framework for how instructors, engineers, and scientific researchers can conceptualize, design and use technology for digital education. It guides the alignment of instructional improvements in digital educational resources (like lessons, exercises, questions) with the advancement of scientific research on learning technologies. The Framework defines MOOClets as modular components of online courses that can be modified to create different versions, which in turn can be iteratively and adaptively improved and personalized to users through experimental comparisons that identify what is better, and for whom.

    This talk shows how the MOOClet Framework provides guidance in identifying MOOClets and augmenting existing platforms with a platform-independent layer that enables experimentation and personalization even when platforms do not provide native support.

    We present examples of experiments that improve learning from personalized worked examples and engagement in response to personalized emails in MOOCs. These studies also show how MOOClets can be automatically improved and personalized via an API using a broad class of machine learning and AI algorithms for reinforcement learning agents – such as multi-armed bandits and Markov Decision Processes.

    Michael Moore: Where to Invade Next | Talks at Google

    1:8:15

    Academy award winning filmmaker Michael Moore stopped by Google to discuss his latest film, Where to Invade Next.

    Where to Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of 'invader,' visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be co-opted.

    Education for opportunity: 3 ideas for American education reform

    5:36

    Education reform has the potential to open incredible doors to opportunity. Yet despite unprecedented levels of public school funding, far too many students in America never enjoy the benefits that can result from a high-quality education.

    In his new book, “Education and Opportunity,” Michael Q. McShane proposes a market-based approach to revitalizing failing American schools — one that fosters innovation and encourages competition via school choice, education savings accounts, and charter schools. But as with any sector of the economy that moves from a public monopoly to market-led solutions, smart stabilization and support from other institutions are essential for making a decentralized school system effective.

    McShane lays out a compelling case for education reform that encourages wiser use of technology and a “marketplace of education options” that can help today’s students succeed in tomorrow’s economy

    Partial transcript:
    Did you know that Americans without a high school diploma, compared to college graduates, are three times more likely to be unemployed, and even those with high school diplomas average fifty percent less in annual income than those with college degrees? But the gap between the educational “haves” and “have-nots” is vast and only growing wider.
    Take Jennifer, a fourth grader born into the poorest 20 percent. Without a college degree, she only has a 5 percent chance of reaching the top, compared to a 45 percent chance of staying in poverty. With a college degree, she’s more likely to make it to the top quintile than she is to remain in the bottom. A quality education makes an enormous difference.
    But it will be an uphill climb because Jennifer’s family will have fewer options for where she can attend school. Wealthier families can afford to live in better school districts or to pay for private schools. Jennifer can only hope the local public school is decent, or take her chances and try to get into a magnet school or a charter school.
    The truth is, our education system stacks the odds against the poorest children, like Jennifer. But here’s the thing: it’s not a spending problem. In inflation-adjusted terms, the average yearly spending per student from 1970 to today has more than doubled. Some of the cities in the United States with the most grinding poverty actually spend among the most per student. Since 1950, while the overall number of students has grown 96 percent, the total number of teachers and staff has grown 252 percent and a whopping 702 percent, respectively. Jobs are opening for Miss Penny and Principal Jones, but it’s not working for Jennifer.
    The problem with the American educational system remains just that—the system. The way we pay for, organize and regulate schools does not foster innovative and entrepreneurial solutions. School districts have become bloated bureaucracies that stifle creativity. It’s demoralizing, it’s dehumanizing, and it hurts kids like Jennifer. The good news? We can change it. There are three big steps we can take right now.

    Script:

    As a professor at a major American university, I’m well aware of higher education’s liberal bias. I also know the unique challenges that college students with conservative views face. If you are one of those students, here are seven ways you can turn those challenges into opportunities for learning and growth.

    1) Face Reality

    The reality is that at most colleges and universities the Leftist worldview is the norm. Everything else is considered a deviation. This is certainly the case in the humanities and social sciences. Even the hard sciences and professional majors, like business, have been influenced -- although, thus far at least, to a much lesser degree. Simply being aware of this ideological imbalance is a big step forward. It will help you think critically about what you’re being taught.

    2) Seek Out Allies

    The easiest way to do this is to identify the non-Left and conservative groups and clubs on campus and to join some of them. We all need allies. And we all need friends with whom we can talk freely. Plus, fellow independent-thinking students can give you advice on how to navigate the Politically Correct obstacle course that runs through almost all college campuses -- and where to find the few non-Leftist faculty. (They do exist!)
    3) Avoid pointless ideological battles
    It’s not your personal responsibility to correct the Leftist bias that permeates higher education. You’re not going to turn around the professor who has no patience for your conservative views, so don’t try. It’s fine to pose probing questions, but don’t push too hard. The same goes for your fellow students who espouse Leftist views -- probe, but don’t push too hard.
    Also, recognize that many left-leaning faculty are committed to an open discussion of controversial topics. Conflicts with closed-minded professors will happen less often than you might imagine.

    4) Stay cool

    If you do mix it up with a Leftist professor or fellow student always be calm, reasonable, and respectful, even if they don't return the favor. Think of yourself as an ambassador for conservative ideas. Coming off as a hothead isn’t going to help the cause. It’s not easy to control your temper, especially when you are being falsely accused of being sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, bigoted or racist, but that’s what you have to do.

    Your opponents will look for any excuse to dismiss you as a crazy conservative. So don’t give them the chance. Remember this: the person who loses his cool often loses the debate.

    5) Choose wisely

    Consider a major that isn’t inherently hostile to conservative ideas. The hard sciences like physics and chemistry are much less likely to be politicized in part, because the material is less subjective. In the social sciences, Political Science and Economics tend to be more tolerant of conservative ideas, if only because a proportionally large minority of the faculty hold views that are centrist or right of center.

    For example, in the years I’ve taught at Penn State University in Harrisburg, the Political Science faculty have been, without exception, committed to teaching politics and policy impartially. On the other hand, Gender studies, Ethnic studies, and pretty much anything with the word “studies” after it, tend to be more ideological. I would suggest steering clear of these courses your freshman year. Wait until you have a little more experience and confidence before taking on these subjects.

    5 Reasons to Major in History

    3:39

    5 Reasons Why You Should Major in History

    Everyone always asks history majors, “So what are you going to do with a history major?” Before you despair and apply for what you think is a more useful major, check out these five reasons why your history major can take you much further than a job where you ask people, “Would you like fries with that? ” after college.

    1. It Teaches You Skills You Can Use for ANY Job

    When people wonder what you are going to do with a history degree and how it can become a successful career, they’re overlooking the fact that a history major doesn’t have the same goal as, say, a nursing major. The ultimate aim of a liberal arts education isn’t to train you for a particular job, but to develop life skills that will be useful in any job. Majoring in one field of study usually only prepares and teaches you about that field. But majoring in History prepares you for life: you learn how to speak, read, and write better than you knew you could. That will take you a lot further in life than people think.



    2. You’ll Keep Up With the Rapidly Changing Career World

    The career world is changing faster than ever. Many of today’s biggest markets didn’t even exist ten years ago! If you want to keep up in such a fast-paced environment, a solid education is crucial. To stay ahead of the game you need to regularly update your skills… The best way to attain this is to commit to life-long learning, and a history major provides a strong foundation for continued learning. Not only can becoming a lifelong learner help you earn more money in traditional employment, but it can also be the gateway to self-employment and starting your own business.





    3. It Gives You a Worldly Perspective

    The world is more connected now that it has ever been, and it’s important to have the skills and education that will allow you to function in a global environment. Because a history major emphasizes the study of other societies and cultures, it is a good way to learn about the world. Employers will appreciate workers who can understand and adapt to different perspectives and ideas.


    4. Google Wants YOU!

    A history major will challenge you to think creatively, which is a skill many big-name employers want in potential employees. Google has famously said that they prefer the liberal arts candidate—the person who can free-associate and creatively think things through. A degree in history will help you develop skills to use in your career, including time management, the ability to conduct research, and ethical decision-making—skills that most employers value highly.




    5. These All-Stars Studied History

    Check out some of these highly successful people, all of whom graduated with degrees in—you guessed it!—history.
    Former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton, was a history major. After graduating, she went on to work as a hedge fund manager and special news correspondent.
    Robert Johnson, who founded Black Entertainment Television, was a history major before starting a career in the television industry.
    Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, majored in history before attending law school.
    Josh Sawyer, the lead designer of the Fallout series, was a history major before he went into video game design.

    So what are you waiting for? When you apply to Cal State Long Beach this fall, choose history as your major.
