Grading Improvement - Ohio Education Reform Campaign
 
01:40
The Ohio Education Reform is a project that began at the Dayton Regional STEM School in Kettering, Ohio at the start of 2015 as a part of the U.S. Government class unit on modern campaigns. Through the development of this campaign, our goal is to make Ohio's education system as effective as possible in educating tomorrow's leaders. This campaign is student-run, pulling its resources from many districts in Ohio. The issues that this campaign targets include: Problems with standardized testing, issues with school funding, along with an umbrella topic of the general disconnect between local school districts and the Ohio Department of Educational. This is a campaign for anyone who cares about improving Ohio’s education. This campaign gives you a chance to have a say in the future of you, and your children’s learning. We are here to improve classroom settings and the overall school experience of students in Ohio. This skit demonstrates how schools are graded with a system that relies heavily on major improvement. Although growth is important, it does not address issues like schools that are already successful. Other categories solely address growth and achievement within very specific groups. Currently, many Ohio schools that previously were ranked highly are now receiving failing grades due to this system.

ESSA: Guaranteeing equitable access to effective teachers using the State Equity Plan (08/24/2016)
 
33:11
Equitable access refers to giving all students the same opportunities to be served by qualified and effective teachers and principals. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires states and districts to ensure that poor and minority students are not taught at disproportionate rates by ineffective, out-of-field or inexperienced teachers and must measure and report on progress toward eliminating inequities. In this ESSA webinar recording, the Ohio Department of Education discusses Ohio’s 2015 Plan to Ensure Equitable Access to Excellent Educators, which already defines the terms required in ESSA. Ohio would not be required to amend its current plan. The webinar shares state strategies to ensure equity and discuss what next steps will need to occur at the local level. Specific attention will be paid to state and local school requirements, the State Equity Plan as opposed to Local Equity Plans, currently available Equitable Planning Access tools and resources, as well as Ohio’s root cause analysis. Please visit http://education.ohio.gov/essa for the latest information on ESSA, including details about additional webinars and regional meetings.
Organizational Learning and Data Use in Schools and Districts: Strategies for Improvement
 
01:57:26
Dr. Kara Finnigan, associate professor of educational policy at the University of Rochester, presents on organizational learning in schools and districts. Effective learning organizations need strong connections and trust among teachers, principals, and other school leaders, but Finnigan has found in her own research on district-level social network analysis that connectedness often is rare in low-performing districts, and that high turnover contributes to this problem. Discussant Susan Yom shares positive results in increased connectivity and teacher practice within her district as a result of extensive professional development.

Education Reform: Progress and Promise.m2p
 
52:49
Education Reform in Ohio Film strips, mimeographed worksheets and chalk have become historical relics of the classroom. It's a new world with great challenges and opportunities for today's students, parents and educators. Stan W. Heffner, Superintendent of Public Instruction for the Ohio Department of Education will join the CMC audience to speak about changes in the state's educational system at the forum on Wednesday, July 25. Joining the discussion will be Mark Real, president and executive director of KidsOhio.org., an nonpartisan, nonprofit educational advocacy organization. Data shows that student achievement in this country continues to fall behind in comparison to other countries. An educated workforce leads to greater economic success on the local, state and national levels but what can be done to insure Ohio students' are ultimately up to fulfilling the needs of today's businesses? The Ohio Department of Education has recommended raising the expectations for Ohio students to help insure a brighter economic future. A wealth of information is available on the website of the Ohio Department of Education including the iLRC (interactive Local Report Card Home). With a few quick clicks, anyone can look at the report card for any school district in Ohio. The report shows data on proficiency tests including the number of state standards met, % of students who are proficient or advanced, including within subgroups such as race/ethnicity and students with disabilities. The 8-page report also reveals benchmarking progress including comparison with other districts. Finally the report includes graduation rates, attendance rates, enrollment figures, spending per pupil, and performance by students with disabilities. Perhaps a particularly interesting measure is the district's performance based on the length of time a student is in the district. Research has shown that moving a student from the school to school generally has an adverse affect on performance. The data in these reports can drive decisions within the schools. Technology has changed so many aspects of education including new ways to deliver instruction. Digital academies or distance learning are a growing option for students to learn at home under the instruction of certified teachers. School boards are re-accessing policies for the use of smart phone and laptop computers in the classroom. For parents, the ability to keep track of their child's homework and school progress has given them a tool to assist their child's path to success. In the same way that students are learning with technology, there are increased option for teachers and administrators to learn via on-line classes and discussions whether it be for an advanced degree to general professional development. On July 2, 2012, Governor John Kasich signed the Cleveland Plan into law. This plan is unique because it received bi-partisan support including Democratic Mayor Jackson in Cleveland to Republican Governor Kasich. All involved are hopeful that success in the Cleveland schools will become a model for schools throughout the state. Cooperation among the teachers' union, the school administration, charitable foundations and the Greater Cleveland Partnership led to this evolutionary plan. Major components in the structure of the district include performance-based pay for teachers instead of only seniority based pay; increased accountability and responsibility to the city and schools for new charter schools' performance and improved reporting about existing charter schools. Particularly unique is the preference for the Cleveland Schools to share its levy funds with charter schools that are sponsored by or under contract with the school district. Instead of a fight between public schools and charter schools, this plan is viewed as a win for students. Mayor Jackson said this plan is "reinventing public education in our city and serving as a model of innovation for the state of Ohio."
GEMS Education Solutions' Chris Kirk on Education Reform
 
03:24
GEMS Education Solutions CEO Chris Kirk education reform in both developed and developing countries. Find out more about the Global Education & Skills Forum: http://www.educationandskillsforum.org Don't miss new Big Think videos!  Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Transcript -- We do have a real crisis in education. In the developing world, in Africa and Asia, we still have so many children out of school. Often the figure that is cited is around 140 million children, some people are saying as high as 250 million children who do not have access to a school place. But actually there's also a question what do we do once of those children are in school? Because many of them are in a class where the teacher is not qualified or indeed where the teacher is completely absent from that class. In the developed world the issue is equally strong because we're spending 12 years of a child's education and they are leaving school and they don't have the skills that employers and society say that they need them to have. And we have mass youth unemployment. We have a lot of a graduate unemployment. And at the same time we had a real gap between the skills that are required and what it is that those young people are able to do. I think it's really important that we look at the data, we look at the evidence of what works when we're looking at how to do you make every school a great school. For example, here in GEMS Education Solutions we've developed a methodology for supporting schools in improvement. And at the heart of that is an understanding of how you make a school better. First of all it's about educational excellence. We need to look at the quality of leadership, quality of teaching, the curriculum. Very importantly how a teacher's empowered to plan, assess, develop their practice and be the lead people for taking the profession forwards. And by doing that we find that standards can rise much more quickly. But equally important, how do we engage the parents? This is a key part of educational effectiveness. We know that children with engaged parents improve in their educational quality much more quickly than those with parents who were disengaged in education. The other side of the coin into education effectiveness is operational effectiveness. And this is something that we in educations have only recently become much better at. This is about how do we efficiently deploy the resources that we have. It's also about how do we introduce the right processes in our schools. Businesses will look in detail at their processes, what is it that we do from top to bottom to deliver the right result. In schools, often it can be more intuitive. However, by analyzing the key processes in a school and actually making sure that each of them is being delivered in the most efficient way by the right people using the right technology, we can actually help to use our money better. And this is the point around financial effectiveness because if we are delivering high quality education and we're doing it in a way which is operationally effective, then we're making the best use of our resources. It's also very important to make sure that all of the stakeholders are really engaged in the work you're doing. So what is it that the parents think, what do the teachers think, what do the students think. How does it all come together to make sure that we have a school that's going to continue to improve, be critical of itself and do the very best it can for its community.

Educating Children In Search of Better Results: Richard Ross, Ohio Superintendent
 
48:58
The State Board of Education's vision is for all Ohio students is "to graduate from the PK-12 education system with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to successfully continue their education and/or be workforce ready and successfully participate in the global economy as productive citizens. Ultimately, all students will graduate well prepared for success." Seems like an obvious and straightforward goal, yet today's news overflows with stories about what a seemingly impossible task this really is! CMC's next two forums examine the challenges we all face when it comes to educating our children. Just appointed by Governor John Kasich in March, Ohio's Superintendent of Public Instruction, Richard Ross leads off the CMC double header by discussing his thoughts on the topic of educating Ohio's children with Mark Real, president and CEO of KidsOhio.org. As the new leader of the state's public schools, Ross will share how the Ohio Department of Education is working towards improving the educational and future opportunities of the state's children attending public schools. Ross reports to the State Board of Education, which is comprised of 19 members, eleven elected and eight appointed by the governor. His job is to reach his board's vision through overseeing 3,868 schools including 290 community schools. The board has adopted four tenets to achieve success. They are: • Teaching 21st century knowledge and skills for real-world success; • Effectively delivering support for a high quality education; • Providing sufficient resources which are efficiently managed; and • Developing a statewide outreach and communication strategy on board policy and the importance of education in the 21st century. During Ross' short tenure with the department, several educational initiatives begun by his predecessor, Stan Heffner, were approved by the legislature. These include the Cleveland Transformation Plan, the Third Grade Reading Guarantee, revisions to Teacher and Principal evaluation systems and the A-F Local Report Card. Ross was praised for the success of the Reynoldsburg schools where he was superintendent from 1988 to 2008. The hope is that his leadership for Ohio schools will achieve similar success.

Keir Educational Resource celebrates 40 years!
 
06:00
Keir Educational Resources celebrates 40 years of providing professional education study media for those professionals in the financial services and insurance industries. Meet President of Keir, Henrietta Keir Nye, CFP®, CLU, ChFC, CPCU, and Chairman of the Board and Editor-in-Chief, John Keir, J.D. Keir Educational Resources was founded by Jack C. Keir, Ph. D., CPCU, CLU in Wayne, PA in approximately 1968. Dr. Keir had been the Director of Examinations at The American College where he developed the idea of preparing supplemental study materials for the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) examinations. The College was not interested in offering supplemental study materials at that time, so Dr. Keir left The American College and took a position with Temple University as a professor of Insurance. Earning a CLU® designation in 1968 required the completion of five courses with the writing of five essay exams. All course exams were given only once a year. These courses were later divided into 10 examinations which were administered two times a year. And later changes included the switch to multiple choice question exams and the requirement change to eight courses instead of ten. With the success of CLU® supplements, Dr. Keir was approached by Dr. Harry Brooks from Miami University who recommended the writing of supplements for CPCU courses. Dr. Brooks and Dr. Keir teamed up for writing supplements for CPCU, INS, AIC and ARM exams. In 1983 Dr. Keir decided to reduce his involvement in the company and move to Florida. At that time, his daughter Henrietta Keir Nye took over the day to day operations of the company. The fulfillment center was moved from Wayne, PA to Middletown, OH. New printers were located in Ohio and mail orders were switched to Ohio. In 1984 the phone orders were moved to Ohio. In 1985 the company took a huge step forward and computerized the organization. The preparation of the manuscripts by computer was a great improvement for authors and editors! This of course improved the final product for the students and decreased the time needed for preparation. The CFP® certification was beginning to grow at this time. To promote the Keir CFP® supplements, Keir attended its first national convention in Anaheim, CA in October, 1985. This line had been started in 1984 and was beginning to get recognition. Conventions has been a large part of the company promotional activities. Today the company exhibits at over 10 shows per year. The American College responded to the growth of CFP® interest with the new ChFC designation. Keir followed with supplements for the ChFC courses. With the addition of so many new lines, there was a great need for more authors and a full time editor. John Keir, son of the founder, joined the ranks in 1989. John Keir holds a bachelors degree from Williams College in English and a law degree from Villanova University. Soon after his joining the company, John started to write the first company materials for NASD exams. The business has had several locations in the Middletown, OH area. The Keir organization started as a cottage industry in the Keir home and moved to the Nye household in 1983 and to the new Nye house in 1986. Thanks to the growth of the organization and the need for new employees and new space, the company selected its first real office at 425 Clark Street in 1992. The operation out grew those facilities in 2000 and moved to the current location at 4785 Emerald Way. Today(2008) the company prepares study materials for the CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, CFA® CPCU, and the FINRA securities licensing examinations.

While our schools have made significant progress over the last 15 years in improving achievement and graduation rates for historically underserved groups of students, there is still a long way to go to close longstanding gaps in opportunity and achievement. Now is not the time to slow down. ESSA contains a number of meaningful levers that education leaders, parents, members of the business and civil rights communities, and advocates can use to advance education equity.

Les Brown - Stop Negative Thinking and Believe in Yourself ►About Les Brown: Les Brown (born February 17, 1945) is a motivational speaker, author, radio DJ, former television host, and former politician. As a politician, Les Brown is a former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. As a motivational speaker, Les Brown uses the catch phrase "it's possible!" and teaches people to follow their dreams as Les Brown learned to do. Les Brown was the host of The Les Brown Show. ►Les Brown was born with Les Brown's twin brother, Wesley, in an abandoned building in a low-income section of Miami, Florida. Les Brown was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant.

Building links between funding & quality in higher education -- India's challenge: Darleen Opfer
 
01:04:30
In an effort to explore India's possibilities in implementing policies that link funding to quality measures as a means of improving quality, RAND researchers reviewed India's Five Year Plan (FYP) and the research literature on other countries' reform efforts. This presentation summarises our findings and suggests seven policy actions the Indian national government and other stakeholders can take to improve higher education by linking funding to quality. Some of the suggested actions can be accomplished in the near term, and others will take more time. This discussion is relevant to reformers in other countries as well, since it reflects lessons learned by governments and institutions worldwide that face a growing demand from potential students, limited resources, and an urgent need to produce quality graduates. About the speaker V. Darleen Opfer is director of RAND Education and holds the Distinguished Chair in Education Policy at the RAND Corporation.Before joining RAND in April 2011, Opfer served on the faculty of education at the University of Cambridge, England, where she was director of research and senior lecturer in research methods and school improvement. Prior to her work in Cambridge, she served as director of the Ohio Collaborative, a policy research center at Ohio State University, where she was also an associate professor of research methods. Opfer was also an assistant professor at Georgia State University and research director for the Virginia Institute of Government at the University of Virginia. Opfer has conducted policy research studies for a number of governments, including on the recruitment and retention of school leaders for the Scottish government and on teacher professional development for the Training and Development Agency for Schools in England.Opfer holds a B.A. in education from Stetson University; and an M.Ed. in behavior disorders and a Ph.D. in education policy studies, both from the University of Virginia. http://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/research_reports/RR200/RR225/RAND_RR225.pdf

Validity Of Teacher Evaluation System Questioned
 
04:19
New Mexico public school teachers recently received their evaluations and schools received A through F grades. Many are not satisfied with the results and are not clear about how the assessments are calculated some educators say the system does not provide the information needed to make improvements. New Mexico State Senator Howie Morales taught special education and has a doctorate in education. He’s concerned about how the Public Education Department evaluates schools and teachers. He notes the amount of funding a school receives is linked to the A through F school grade. As well as a teacher’s promotion or firing may be based in part on their evaluation. Morales says the school ratings and teacher evaluations are not always accurate. “You have truly highly effective educators who are coming out as minimally effective or you have schools that are higher proficiency that may have a D or an F but you have schools that have less proficiency that have are actually an A or B. Morales says the volatility in school grades and teacher evaluations is due to the Public Education Department’s emphasis on standardized testing. “Too much that is going on in that classroom that is not being effectively measured when you are putting so much emphasis on standardized tests”. According to the research group the RAND Corporation, the so called value added model being used by New Mexico is not an absolute indicator of effectiveness. RAND says the model should be used in conjunction with other measures like teacher peer reviews, school environment and student in class work. But New Mexico Public Education Department Secretary designate Hanna Skandera says the state’s teacher evaluation systems had to be changed, the old system didn’t reveal where development and improvements were needed. Skandera says the old system rated 99.9% of teachers effective. “We first have to ask what did we have before, it was subjective and didn’t tell us any information on how to become better educators and how to better serve our kids”. But Morales says the new system just gives schools a letter grade and teachers a rating and schools and teachers don’t get to see test results so they can address gaps in the curriculum, address areas of student weakness and approach different teaching methods. “It still can’t give any pathway to showing improvement or how that educator can take those numbers and really improve their performance” . But even if the system provided more information, Morales says he isn’t sure if the feedback would be useful or even reliable. He has studied use of the value added model in New Mexico and in other states he says the level of volatility and inconsistency of scores is bigger than the over-emphasis on standardized test scores. So Morales took the scores and the model to a group of mathematicians and scientists in Los Alamos for analysis. “I went to experts people who understand numbers people understand statistical models and asked them if this could be replicated could we reproduce can every school go through and figure out how that was developed and the answer back then was no”. Morales says while the Public Education Department is leading a campaign to make teachers, schools and administrators more accountable for student achievement they are refusing to be transparent and accountable as a department. “Not having all that data, to see how they can determine how those grades were done for how that evaluation was calculated really leads its self to a lot of skepticism saying that is this being manipulated is there a way you can tinker with the value added model that can produce certain results for certain agendas”. Morales says by gaming the formula, adding in new variables as they see fit the PED can generate the results and statistics to show how well the administration is doing, justify the need for certain policies and keep schools and administrators in check. Morales says he confronted Hanna Skandera about the addition of new variables in school grading measurements last year, he says it was done to generate grading and results that would provide a statistical backing for social promotion policies of that year. “She admitted to doing so without telling the school districts by adding a 10th grade component in the variable within the formula there were no changes to the formula at the elementary level which have shown that you have more D’s and F’s which really lends itself to the agenda and to the argument that we need social promotion”. Morales says he is proposing a moratorium on the use of value added models until they can be distinguished as the best way to evaluate schools and teachers and their use in New Mexico has become more transparent.

Hand-held Technology Strengthens Care
 
01:44
Justin Harper looked at his Apple iPod touch and saw a world of possibility. This third-year OSU medical student helped launch a program that now benefits all medical students at The College of Medicine, the only college currently giving the iPod touch to all its students for educational purposes. Now, medical students can carry the equivalent of heavy textbooks and medical references in their lab coat pockets. The iPod touch has the potential to positively impact both medical education and the care provided to patients at the bedside, says Catherine Lucey, MD, vice dean for education. The personal digital assistant puts a wealth of information at the fingertips of our students. They can study when they want and where they want. If they are seeing a patient and a question arises, they can find the answer instantly, to share with them. This hand-held technology can provide graphics, which allow students to refer to resources such as high quality images of each organ and nerve in the body. They can review images from multiple angles, access videos of medical treatments or surgical procedures, and request a review quiz at any time. Over the next two years, Ohio State medical students will receive a standard iPod touch, equipped with specific medical software programs planned by the OSU College of Medicine. According to Dr. Lucey, this effort continues OSU Medical Centers leadership in the use of technology to improve the quality of education and patient care. We are committed to providing our students with the best tools available, to help them provide outstanding patient care, says Dr. Lucey. I am delighted that OSU Medical Center is on the cutting edge of a trend that will undoubtedly expand to medical schools across the country.

Learn English Grammar: The Sentence
 
18:29
http://www.engvid.com Do you know how to build a sentence in English? In this lesson, you will learn the basic parts of a simple sentence, or independent clause. Knowing this will make it easier to understand any sentence in written English. Understanding how these different parts of a sentence work together to form meaning will help you write better in English. The knowledge in this lesson is essential for any 'Independent User' or 'Proficient User' of English. Quiz yourself here: http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-the-sentence/ TRANSCRIPT Hi again. I'm Adam. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. Today I have a very important lesson, I think, for all of you that will help you very much with your reading, but especially your writing skills. Okay? Today we're going to look at the sentence. What is a sentence? Now, I know that all of you are saying: "Well, we know what a sentence is. We've learned this a thousand times before." Right? I know what you've learned and I know what you haven't learned, many of you; some of you have, of course. The sentence has a very basic structure, there's a very basic component that must be involved or included in a sentence, and a lot of grammar teachers, a lot of English teachers don't teach this. Okay? All of you, I'm sure have by now heard of "SVO", but have you heard of "SVsC"? Have you heard of "SVC"? Maybe yes, maybe no. But I'm sure a lot of you are going: "What? I've never heard of these things before." Well, we're going to talk about this in one second. Before we talk about a sentence, we have to talk about a clause. Now, what is a clause? I'm sure you've heard this word before as well, but just in case, a clause is any subject, verb combination. It's a group of words that must include a subject and a verb. Now, also very important to remember: it must be a tense verb, meaning that it must take a time; past, present, future. Okay? No base verb, no infinitive verb. So that is a clause. Now, there are two types of clauses. Okay? We have independent clauses and we have dependent clauses. The... These are sometimes called subordinate clauses. Now, every sentence in English to be a grammatically correct sentence must have an independent clause. It doesn't need a dependent clause, but it could have one. The independent clause could include a dependent clause as the subject or object. We'll talk about that after. So an independent clause has a subject and a verb, and it can stand by itself. It can contain a complete idea by itself. Okay? So, technically, the shortest sentence you can have in English will be a... Will be an independent clause with a subject and verb. What is the absolute shortest sentence that you can think of? Think of a sentence, the shortest you can possibly make it. Okay? Here's an example: "Go!" Is this a complete English sentence? Yes. Why? Because it contains an independent clause. Where? We have the implied subject: "you" and the tense verb: "go", the imperative tense "go". So this your basic English sentence. Now, we have three other types, three basic types and we can of course play with these after. Subject, verb, object. Some independent clauses must have an object, we'll talk about that in a second. Excuse me. Subject, verb, subject complement. Some sentences must have a subject complement. Subject, verb, complement. Okay? We're going to talk about each of these in a moment. I have the "A" here because quite often, this complement is actually an adverb phrase or an adverbial. We'll talk about that in a second. So your basic sentence can be any one of these three. Now, the reason we're looking at this... All these structures is because once you understand what must be contained in a sentence, then you can read any English sentence out there that is grammatically correct and be able to understand the main idea of that sentence. Okay? So let's start with "SVO". Okay, let's look at our "SVO" type of independent clause: subject, verb, object. Now, first, what is an object? Well, we have two types of objects to talk about. We have the direct object, we have the indirect object. Now, the thing to understand is that the object always answers a question about the verb, it completes the meaning of the verb by asking the questions: "What?" or: "Who?" Now, keep in mind that technically, it's: "Whom?" But if you say: "Who?" I'll let it go this time. Okay? Formal academic writing, "Whom?", "Whom?", "Whom?" IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, all that - "Whom?" not: "Who?" In the object position. But the direct object answers: "What?" or: "Who?" about the verb. Okay? We'll get back to that.
