Education Expansion Through Networks

Connected-1

June 24, 2013

Dr. Tyra Oldham, LANDsds Sustainable Voice News

Despite the over inflation of technology propagated trough our use of social networks, cell phones and television what is factual is we live in a digital divide of access and access nots. This discontinuity of technological access perpetuates the education and information divide further isolating knowledge between the have and have nots. The conditions of this division is a growing web of disconnects and widening the gap of the under educated. The use of technology is a platform “How to Build Support for Education Technology” but more so, change education for the better.

The facts of U.S. education are the poor rankings in English, math and science. The effects of poor education are the loss of jobs and the need to outsource skills and knowledge.

Edutopia reported, “President Obama recently announced ConnectEd. This initiative aims to connect 99 percent of America’s students to high-speed internet within the next five years. It also intends to increase teachers’ skills in using education technology tools to improve student learning and encourages the private sector to develop educational devices and digital content.”

Technology is a building block but not a replacement for strong education. Technology can bring information and heightened communication with access to global developments. The ability to tap into knowledge is a bridge but not the foundation. Technology and a strong course correction is vital to education.

The White House reports growing bipartisan support for the initiative, and many in the education community applaud it as a much-needed effort to upgrade our schools’ broadband capability.”

The missing step is closing the digital divide within the nation’s adults. Students are more likely to use and embrace what their parents promote. The technological and generational divide in education is not fulfilling the promise made by our forefathers to build upon “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” This promise is based on strong educational system that can deliver a perfect union emphasized on leveraging the basics of language, math and writing.
