    Education Canaries: Can data rich systems predict and prevent failure?

    in Education

    One of the significant promises of big data in education is to predict and prevent student failure. Of course we want to see learners succeed and data can help us with that as well, however, catching students before they get lost or even drop out is essential. Some visionaries see technology as driving learning through increasingly intelligent prompts, assessments of learning, and directing learners to ever more complex and advanced concepts… all driven by models for learning driven by student generated data. More recently many educational leaders have a more holistic view of data and recognize that while we need to educate the whole child, we need to also look at information about the whole child to diagnose and address learning deficiencies and help students on a path where they can be successful. Beyond their inherent interest in helping children, educators and the institutions in which they work are being held accountable to show learner progress. In this show we will explore the many different kinds of data that can be used to monitor student progress, identify those who require assistance, and the systems that make sense of those data to support educators and parents in driving student success.

    Open Forum : Education in Zambia/ Current events

    in News

    "When it comes to improving the quality of education, we know that teachers matter. The interaction that takes place within the classroom is arguably the biggest factor affecting whether and what children learn. We’ve seen around the world that a “good” teacher isn’t necessarily defined by his or her number of advanced degrees or years teaching; rather, good teachers are adequately prepared, supported, motivated, and compensated." Jenny Perlman Robinson 


    We ask, how can we contribute to education improvement in Zambia?


    CURRENT EVENTS will look at events in Zambia and around the world.

His current manuscript is Playing@Foresight: Communicating the Future of Digital Culture (in review at MIT Press).

    WHAT IS CONSCIOUSNESS AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY IN OUR LIVES???

    in Self Help

    What does being spiritually conscious person really mean?


     f you ask someone what it mean to be unconscious, he or she is likely to respond by saying that being unconscious means to be unaware of what is going around you.


    We are always choosing to live our lives from a material consciousness or a spiritual consciousness…. From the finite or the infinite, from the visible or the invisible.


    We understand that consciousness varies with our sleep and waking cycles.


    Of course,When we're wide awake, we are more aware of our environment than when we're fast asleep,  and even when we're fast asleep, however, some information gets through.


     On the other hand, what does being spiritually conscious mean?


    A spiritual consciousness is experiencing life through spiritual discernment, paying attentionto our insticnt and intuition.


    We see past the physical form to the spiritual essence.


    What are the actual benefits of becoming more conscious?  Why would anyone care to do this? 


    Raising your consciousness can enhance your spiritual development.


    All of these are skills that we develop ,Traditional education teaches us basic skills and basic knowledge, but it does little to show us how to develop our conscious minds. 


    We aren’t taught how to intelligently make the biggest decisions of our lives, how to cultivate a burning desire for what we want,.


    Join me Janice Clarke, Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Herbalist, Nutritional Consultant, Reiki Practitioner and HOSTOF THE SOULFUL HEALING TALK SHOW,


    To discuss what is consciousness, what comes with consciousness and how necessary it is in our lives.


    Wanna Raise Your Consciousness?  Well Join us for our ME TIME!!
