The Hispanic population has the lowest college graduation rate of any other group, but that is not the case in Arizona.
With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
I have been traveling throughout Slovenia and Croatia for the past month training teachers in integrating Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) effectively with their classes. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach various classes of teens throughout the two countries to show teachers how BYOT works. For the days I was teaching the students, these schools lifted their policies and allowed the students to use their devices as a way of getting technology in the schools. The teachers wanted to see BYOT in action, especially with students who were never allowed to use their mobile devices or other technologies before for learning. BYOT was a great option because many of these students would not usually be able to learn with various technologies in schools if they didn’t bring them in.
Newton informs the class that they must take measurements and record data on this new planet. To repair their ship and return to Earth, they need to solve math and science problems at each station on the planet Entramedon.
It’s fun and a little silly, but their mission is serious. The third graders are reviewing math and science skills before the DC Comprehensive Assessment System test this month, the yearly high-stakes standardized exam for grades 2-10 in the District of Columbia. Creating a new fictional setting, complete with props and a storyline, engages the children’s imaginations and forces them to put their knowledge into a new context, Hall said.
“It has happened all too often. A troubled teenager gets his hand on a weapon, and lives are changed forever.”
For many inner-city teens, these words hit close to home — and they can be heard in the trailer for “Triggering Wounds: A Story of Guns and Violence in Harlem,” a documentary produced by an incredible group of high school students. The film, which shines a light on gun violence, is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.

The movie, “The Biggest Story Problem,” written and directed by Scott Laidlaw and Jennifer Lightwood, is determined to focus on ineffective math education in the U.S. and provide solutions to get the U.S. back on track. The movie features teachers from around the country, from Roots and Wings Community School in New Mexico to Florida Virtual School in Florida, the first virtual school in the U.S. These teachers are determined to find alternative ways to engage their students in math and turn their attention to countries that excel in math education, like Finland. A turning point in the film comes during a teacher development retreat, when the group of teachers commit to making math more engaging, deeper learning process through the use of interactive computer games in the classroom.

A public school district in Danville, Ky., has turned its emphasis away from traditional testing in order to encourage creativity and let students learn by doing. NewsHour special correspondent for education John Merrow reports on “deep learning,” and how it requires commitment from educators, students and parents.
Asking questions is essential to learning. And yet, children are not asking questions nearly enough. In fact, data from the U.S. school systems tells us that the average high school student asks one question of substance per month in a classroom.
Hal Gregersen, the co-author along with Clayton Christensen of the recent book The Innovator’s DNA, tells Big Think,”We need to build this capacity in ourselves and the people around us to ask the right question.”
