    Privacy, Anonymity, and Instruction

    in Education

    Privacy today looks very different than it did 20 years ago… and the drive toward more personalized instruction from students, parents, and educators challenges privacy even further. Is it possible to build barriers to thwart data thieves and support general anonymity while providing educators with access to assessment and more nuanced qualitative information?  The ability to balancing these demands is essential if we are to realize the benefits that personalized learning can offer.


    Communities are trying to address the challenge of providing the infrastructure to support quality education, while still adhering to socially acceptable policies around data security and anonymity. With instruction, it’s not simply about assessment but providing substantial feedback that allows students to become masters of their own learning. In order to be effective, educators and educational environments need to know who the learner is, balance the trade offs between complete anonymity and provide access to information that informs instruction.


    Join Michael Jay and guests as they take a bite out of the hard questions like:



    How is technology outside of education progressing and how can we leverage it to improve our systems?
    How can we educate decision makers about the trade offs around privacy/anonymity and also set expectations with parents and the larger community?


    Guests at the Table:



    Tim Discipio, Founder, ePals
    Jeff Patterson, Founder and CEO, Gaggle, Inc.
    Francesca Venning, Learning Technology Consultant, Venning and Associates

    Instruction - Warning and Correction

    in Education

    When we give instructions to a student we make two very important assumptions that may or may not be true. We assume that they heard us, and that they understood us. Dealing with student behavior requires as much instruction as does the academic curriculum.

    Lord Have Murphy with Fran Shaw

    in Women

    While there may be a plethora of books on consciousness, none is quite like the new Amazon #1 bestseller, Lord Have Murphy: Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. It’s a funny, sardonic commentary that’s also a brilliant entrée to a new level of consciousness unknown even to many people who have dabbled in meditation, mindfulness and even yoga.


    The book’s author Fran Shaw, Ph.D., is a longtime practitioner in a spiritual discipline and an award-winning university writing instructor. Out of her fertile mind has popped Murphy, the star narrator of this journey into this new level of awareness. And Murphy has a wry comment on EVERYTHING!


    Murphy demurs from being a teacher—no guru is he—yet his exploration of the nature of this deep new level of conscious awareness is a fun-filled, quip-induced, deeply funny, pathway to the higher self.


    As Fran notes, “We hear a lot these days about mindfulness. ‘Weapons of mass instruction are proliferating.’ How to clear the air? To trust what’s in us and that we’re finding our way to it.”


    With unrelenting humor, this book tells the tale of Murphy giving it a try, only to discover in himself an extraordinary truth: that contact with the finer energy animating us awakens us to a completely different level of being alive.


    Murphy’s satirical comments make readers laugh out loud. The book appeals to both of our natures, the everyday and the higher. For Murphy, the daily ups and downs become the necessary reminders to awaken, and “we don’t have to be a certain way to wake up. Nothing about me needs to change except where the attention is.”

    Tithing: Conclusions & Reflections

    in Christianity

    Are You Free to Give?


     
    Here's a little test: If you are currently tithing, or making regular donations to a ministry, group or person, ask the Lord each time if that is the amount He wants you to give. Tell Him that unless you hear to the contrary, you will assume His answer is "Yes!" Then give Him an opportunity to speak. Remember, the goal here is not to give the "right" amount. The goal is to enjoy our relationship with the Lord, and to have the confidence that He makes Himself known.




    Gives Life! Not Meeting Standards!


    When the Lord started talking to me about this, how I was maintaining control over my finances by putting the "principle of tithing" above His personal instruction, He asked me to ask Him what He wanted to do every time I went into my wallet, not just about ministry-related matters, but purchases as well. I was amazed at how much He had to say!


    When considering a choice or action or even belief or doctrine, here are some of the questions I ask myself:


    Does it draw me closer to the Lord, or in some way drive me away from Him?


    Does it encourage me to be real and honest with the Lord and with others?


    Does it encourage me to rely on my own strength or ability or on the Lord's alone?


    Does it encourage me to rely on my faith or understanding or on the Lord's faithfulness and trustworthiness?


    Does it encourage me to be vulnerable to the Lord's dealings in my life, or does it impart the fear of consequences or of making a mistake?


    Does it encourage me to come closer to others, and be vulnerable with others?


    If this hurts my reputation, do I gain a closer relationship with Him?


    If it is not specifically addressed in the scriptures (after personal study, reflection and meditation), does it seem to contradict or line up with their intent?
