Education facepalm. Education blather misses the obvious.
#education

Much like the changing physical design of the phone affected its use for calling people, the changing design of the pen has affected handwriting. You may not realize this, but it's significantly harder on the hands to write with a ballpoint pen than with a fountain pen.

I was personally very aware of this when I was a physicist, since most of the work I had to do was writing and working through page after page of equations, which to this day isn't easy to do on a computer. So it was pens and notebooks all the time, and I became extremely particular about which ones I used: a pen which either had too high a resistance or which dried too slowly, or paper that didn't absorb the ink well, and my work would actively suffer.

(Quite seriously: if your hands hurt too soon, you can't write for hours on end. If the ink smudges as you write -- especially if, like me, you're left-handed -- everything is a lost cause. If the paper doesn't absorb the ink and dry enough for you to flip pages in the notebook, you're lost. Any of these things take time, energy, and concentration, and you simply can't vanish into the flow of the science.)

This article isn't about doing science, but about how the ballpoint pen changed handwriting -- but it's through the exact same process. The various methods of cursive weren't popular primarily for their aesthetics; they were practical methods of writing quickly and legibly. As anyone who remembers having to do this in school can attest, that's always been kind of strange, because with modern pens, Palmer-method cursive is much slower and harder: people tend to develop their own semi-script handwriting for when they actually need to write day-to-day. (Except for handwriting enthusiasts who are doing it for fun)

So when you see the lack of handwriting, instead of crying "O tempora! O mores!," realize that what you're seeing isn't simply a move to computers: it's the evolution of the pen itself.

Templeton Foundation moves into the fantasy world of charter schools.

+Woozle Hypertwin says this was funded by the Templeton Foundation.

#freeMarketThread (part nine) #rebuttal
I broke my rule against bookstops and watched this, mainly because I know TED talks (even TEDx) are generally short and to the point.

What I don't get is how these successes -- in low-government (and apparently incompetent-government), low-wealth areas -- can be applied to the US. If private schools can serve everyone, why aren't they? There's certainly enough demand.

For one thing, we cannot expect parents to pay for their kids' schooling when those parents often come from such an anti-education subculture that they would just as soon keep their kids at home, even if school was free.

Also, how do you maintain quality? A specific example of this: how do you keep private schools from teaching religious crap, which they would be allowed to do in the US (either under current law or under "smaller government")?

She even mentions this issue, but never credibly answers it (bad logic aside).

Oh, I see now -- she's advocating a voucher system. ...which bears absolutely no resemblance to the system that is working so well (according to her carefully-filtered stats) in the countries she's talking about, and would undercut at least one of the points she made about why that system works (the "rotten fruit" metaphor).

I could pick more holes, but I think I'm wasting my time at this point.

(Agggh... fucking circular logic... the "poor parents'" assessment of schools was used as proof that the schools were working, and then the fact that the schools were working was used as proof that parents can make good decisions about schooling. [insert more expletives here] This is a large part of why libertarians make me angry and sad.)

She mentions very quickly in passing that this work was funded by the John Templeton Foundation -- an organization with an agenda of injecting religion into secular society. I suspect the "religious crap" issue is one they're more than happy to paper over, because it suits their ends just fine if more people are taught religion as fact.

This is all part of the ongoing plutocratic effort to destroy public education worldwide, and reduce the majority of us to ignoramuses who will do whatever the leaders want us to do, because we won't know any better.

If you control what people know, you control what they believe. If you control what people believe, you can control what they do.___Templeton Foundation moves into the fantasy world of charter schools.

I think this is useful for students.

Another good explanation in "Why evolution is true"

The term "random" here has a specific meaning that is often misunderstood, even by biologists. What this means is that mutations occur regardless of whether they would be useful to the individual.[...]. Rather than calling mutations "random," then. it seems more accurate to call them "indifferent": The chance of a mutation arising is indifferent to whether it would helpful or hurtful to the individual.

And Ferguson said that despite extensive research, they have yet to find any truly innovative approaches and isolate any “great teaching techniques.”
