Without education increases poverty

Without education increases poverty

There are different numbers on poverty in my country, Argentina. Unfortunately officers prepared by the INDEC lack credibility in our population. Argentina Catholic University (Social Debt Observatory Argentina) has been preparing periodically since several years ago statistical reports that are reliable for methodological objectivity.

In the latest report by the ACU is quantified by 28.7 percent of our poverty level in 2014, this indicates that between 2010 and 2014 poverty declined slightly, since poverty in 2010 was somewhat higher (29.4 percent).

But in this report ACU is not limited to measuring the total poverty in our country, but we also illustrates about inequality region of the country, and also alerts us to the huge difference in poverty by education level of the families.
While poverty in the CABA (Buenos Aires) affects 6.8 percent of the population, when the General Paz crosses (outside the capital) poverty is growing more than 5 times as climbs 36.2 percent. There is more poverty in suburban Buenos Aires that inside the country, since in the inner cities poverty is below the level of the suburbs as it hovers around 27 percent.
An important merit of this report is to show the UCA the decisive influence which of education as a determinant of poverty. The national average of poverty in 2014 is, as we said, 28.7 percent, but attention, among those who completed high school is much lower poverty (10.9 percent).

The scourge of poverty and destitution overwhelmingly punish those who did not complete high school, as many as 45 of every 100 of them are poor. In the twenty-first century without complete secondary school it is very difficult for people to have safe and permanent jobs that allow escape poverty.
We are in presence of profound inequality that should be corrected, as these figures tell us that those who do not finish high school are candidates to swell the pockets of poverty, this statement does not surprise anyone because it is not new.
We all know, and this report confirms the ACU so that “adults who are poor today have not completed high school yesterday,” but turn attention is also true that “teens today are not completing high school will be the poor future. ”

This phenomenon is known as “intergenerational transmission of poverty” because today’s poor children have no secondary education, which in turn also completed the secondary cycle legally enforceable.
Our education system is consolidating inequality. And that for every 100 children entering first grade a private primary school complete secondary 70 of them, but 100 entering a state primary end secondary school just 27. Without universal secondary school, which outreach to all socioeconomic levels of the population, can not alleviate poverty. This universalization of secondary should be the concern of the next government that will begin in December.

Thinking of a proprietary cloud service for students. And Free

Long ago I was thinking of putting a cloud service for students of FCE-UNRC.

Eventually I found a server and client program that allows me to meet the needs:

– Do not rely on services (Google Drive or DropBox)
– Share documents
– List of Contacts
– A Document Viewer
– Tasks

OwnCloud has many more functions.

The ownCloud Sync Client is a desktop program you install on your computer. Specify one or more directories on the local machine to sync your ownCloud server, and Always Have your latest files wherever you are. Make a change to the files on one computer, it will flow across the others using these desktop sync clients.

The website to download the program and complete documentation is: https://owncloud.org/

As a social network aid to education

Tarrou's Chalk Talk

 

I saw this article in the Huffington Post about a teacher named Rob Tarrou who makes great YouTube videos that show him teaching math and how these videos have become popular.

From the moment I started reading this article I was amazed. I loved the title, “Chalk talk” and how he is literally using a chalk board and doing math examples.  It was easy to see that this teacher had a lot of passion for teaching math. What teacher would upload videos of themselves teaching math for students who miss school? I’ll tell you-passionate teachers! He isn’t doing this to make a profit. He seems to do this because he loves to teach.

Then I decided to watch a video and see what they were like. I like how he introduces himself in the video. He likes wearing a silly shirt or jumping into the video.  The article says how he has been getting views on his videos from all over the world and how they seem to help many people.

The article mentions how this is an example of a “flipped classroom” and discusses some negatives of the flipped classroom. If you do not know what a flipped classroom is, it is when a student watches videos like the ones this where a teacher is giving instruction at home and at school assignments, tests, and labs are completed. The negatives it mentions are that it is not the same as hands on instruction and it seems only possible in communities where every student has a computer.

I think that if a teacher is uploading themselves teaching a lesson, they have to think about its purpose. Is it for a few students who want to watch a video at home for extra help? Or is it for all students who are learning in a flipped classroom? I think that the purpose determines the content of the video and how the video is portrayed.

Mr. Tarrou is currently not using a flipped classroom, but I feel that he could the way his videos are presented. They seem to reach students who are currently learning a new topic or are confused on a topic and want extra help. I think this is a great example of a YouTube video that can be used any way. It can be used in a flipped classroom or just for extra help. Anyone around the world can see this video.

I love watching YouTube when I have a problem and seeing how others solved it. The power of YouTube is just absolutely huge.  So when I see articles on how people are becoming popular from Youtube like Mr. Tarrou, I am reminded of how much of an influence YouTube has on our society. To me it is just as influential as Google. I would love to sit in Mr. Tarrou’s class and see if he is like his YouTube videos!

Difference between Online Education VS. Traditional Education

These days, the internet has grown into a veritable wealth of information for college seekers. Everything from applying for financial aid to taking a course can be accomplished online. Now, a student can even obtain online degrees from one of many schools offering online education as a viable alternative to a traditional classroom education. How different are these two methods of teaching, and do either prove better for the student? There’s an abundance of information regarding online education, and distance education is becoming increasingly popular for students everywhere.

First and foremost, there are some obvious benefits in obtaining instant degrees. For example, juggling a job, school and a home can be very difficult as far as commuting to the classroom every day. With online education, you eliminate the need to attend classes, and instead access your coursework from an internet website. This presents an obvious benefit to the overworked college student because his commute is basically slashed in half. What’s more, many distance education programs allow students to complete the coursework any time during the day, while still adhering to overall deadlines. This allows for flexibility that a traditional classroom setting can ordinarily not provide.

However, is an online education truly comparable to the type of education a student would receive in an actual classroom? Many professionals in the field say yes, and certainly students seeking online degrees can confirm this response. Not only does online learning provide a stimulating environment for students, but it promotes even interaction among every student because everyone has a say in classroom discussions. What’s more, online education programs allow each student to learn with the methods that work best for them. Plus, many employers respect online degrees as much as a traditional college degree, so there’s really no difference in the amount of education or respect a student will receive when attending an online college.

While traditional colleges will never be eliminated, there’s definitely been an increase in the amount of students attending online colleges in recent years. Many people choose to follow the online education route for the diversity of material they can find, or because the teachers are more approachable via the internet than they would be in a classroom setting. Students definitely need discipline and self-motivation to succeed in obtaining online degrees, but there’s still the same level of help and support from teachers and students online that there would be in a classroom. What’s more, internet college students are learning skills that will be beneficial to them in the workforce and beyond because of the way technology is evolving today.

Life experience online degrees are becoming an increasingly popular way to obtain a college education and many students are turning to online education because of the quality of material, convenience and the level of flexibility inherent in distance education programs. Because there’s no distinct differences between an online education and a traditional education, students are assured they are receiving the same kind of education that they would in a brick and mortar setting. There are definite benefits to online degree programs, and students with discipline and motivation can and will succeed greatly in online education programs.
