Thread: The Transformation of Education: From YouTube to the Metaverse 🌐🎓

Apple Vision Pro news sparked my intrest again 🧵👇

#AppleVisonPro #Metaverse #EducationForAll #ai Image
1/ The release of Apple Vision Pro has really caught my attention. It got me thinking how education is evolving and how the #metaverse could be a game-changer. Just like YouTube transformed self-education, the metaverse has the potential to revolutionize the entire school system. Image
2/ YouTube made learning accessible to everyone, anytime, and anywhere. But imagine a metaverse where #education goes beyond watching videos. Picture yourself stepping into virtual environments, actively engaging with the learning material. It's like being part of the lesson! Image

Utah's Davis School District pulls the Bible off elementary and middle school shelves, citing "vulgarity and violence". The move is backed by a 2022 law that bans "pornographic or indecent" books from schools. #BibleBan #Utah Image
📚 The Book Ban Fallout: The decision follows a parental complaint, arguing the King James Bible holds unsuitable content for children. Notably, most books previously banned discussed sexual orientation and identity. #BookBan #Education
🚫 This Bible ban joins a larger trend across the US, with states banning teachings and books on controversial topics like LGBT rights and racial identity. Bans on books deemed offensive are in place in Texas, Florida, Missouri, and South Carolina. #Censorship

Women Can’t Be Forced To Choose Between Right To Education And Reproductive Autonomy: Delhi High Court @nupur_0111 #DelhiHC…
“The Constitution as adopted on 26th of November, 1949 served as a pledge that the citizens of India made to themselves. A pledge to disassociate ourselves from the parochial notions of society that prevented the ushering of equality,” #DelhiHighCourt #MaternityLeave
Court: It was without any form of equivocation that the people asserted their right to be treated equally. Irrespective of gender, race, religion or caste, citizens were to claim their opportunities.

Actually, it’s his Astroturfed “Moms for Liberty” that is rolling this out nationally at his direction. > #DeSantis inspires push to make book bans in Republican-controlled states easier…
1) Unmasking “Moms for Liberty” - a nonprofit claiming to advocate for “parental rights,” appears to be using parents as pawns to advance a far-right agenda.…
2) We must emancipate U.S. kids from groups like Moms for Liberty
Some media outlets tend to give the ultraconservative, book-banning organization a pass for its links to #extremism. Here’s why that’s a mistake.…

China's President Xi Jinping's alma mater Tsinghua University just released a survey named "China Unfiltered: The Chinese People's View on National Security". (“无滤镜的中国”:中国人的国际安全观调查)

What did the survey find? A thread. /1🧵 Image
Tsinghua University is widely known as one of China's 'Big 2' universities (along with PKU), and is arguably the most politically connected one -- having produced 4 out of the last 6 Presidents and Premiers, including Xi Jinping (pictured in 1975 at his send-off to Tsinghua)./2 Image
This survey is done by Tsinghua's CISS (Center for International Strategy and Security), and has made 8 findings. /2

1. Almost 80% of Chinese people believe they have 'great' (36%) or 'good' (41.3%) understanding of international security. /3 Image

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

🚨 Stop giving smartphones to your kids! 🚨

A friend shared Sapien Labs' report that highlights a deeply concerning correlation between early access to smartphones (& tablets) to young children and the increased likelihood of suffering from mental disorders as adults. (1/5) Image
The numbers are truly shocking:

(a) ~60-70% of women who were exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 experience mental health issues as adults

(b) ~45-50% of men who got exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 also face similar challenges later in life. (2/5)
I urge parents to resist the temptation of handing over a phone to kids always - while crying, or eating food etc.

Instead, encourage real-world interactions, outdoor activities & hobbies.

As parents, we have a responsibility to protect our children's mental health. (3/5)

Does someone get a dime every time the same old falsities about #education are published?…
This one is a real (and lengthy) hoot. Hits all the rhetorical sour notes. “scientists have discovered in recent decades that acquiring factual information isn’t a useless, soul-crushing exercise; it’s the prerequisite for higher-order thinking” 🤣
many elementary schools have marginalized or eliminated knowledge-building subjects like social studies and science. The pressure to raise reading and math scores is one factor,

With all the rage about ChatGPT, have you ever wondered about the differences between AI and more classical technologies? Join me for a brief tour, with its relation to Aerospace. @RedDivulga, @filarramendi, @uc3m y @doctoradoUC3M.  @PhDAaeroUC3M #PhD #Aerospace #Engineering
ChatGPT, and its equivalents work like buttonsmashing. You have a bajillion buttons, and them you mash, tweak, and tune them randomly. Like this young Alien Stu is doing in the Pixar short movie Lifted.
Stu is trying to learn how to abduct humans. I know, a very Aerospace oriented scenario. Consider him as Chatgpt in its beginnings. He pushes random buttons, and not surprisingly, nothing really works. However, the more he tries, the more he learns the buttons

Ce papier était intitulé “Time out et #hyperactivité inventée : les théories controversées de la psychanalyste Caroline Goldman“ (1). J’y étais interviewée aux côtés d’Agnès Fortin, professeur émérite de psychologie de l’#enfant à l’université de Nantes.👇

STOP what you're doing and START watching this interview from 2001 with Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt (#CTI). She cannot be controlled or cancelled. She #AWAKENED in 1975 and her book on #education is a MUST. Would love to have met her. 🧵
"Textbook called 'World of Mankind': teacher takes the 1st grade through town and asks them to identify big houses & little houses. What do you think they eat in the big house, what do they eat in the little house? To create class system class warfare"
"The United States Dept. of Education does fund the National Education Association. So this has been going on for a long, long time." -#CTI
