Education: Helping New Society Deal Creatively With Reality

The importance of blogosphere is it's changing and mutating every second. Many starts-up had flourished and some others had perished but bloggers still alive and now they have a powerful influence in traditional media. A survey conducted by Brodeur, a unit of Omnicom Group, had concluded that "blogs are not only having an impact on the speed and availability of news, but also influence the tone and editorial direction of reporting." That's what has reported.

As part of what our intentions are during this year, we've planned to work harder making this blog more reachable and has to be with putting yourself at risk. How is it going to happen? Whoever who has read the 16 most effective strategies to expand your blog reach in the 2008, must be aware that it takes not only writing to pursue this endeavor.

We already are bloggers and even when we have to change gears, still we all have a niche or 'market target' to publish and sell our content, no wonder some are pushing hard to sell feeds in exchange for one dollar! Yes, we are mature people but the central thing comes right now. What about the new society we are growing, those kids or teens are living the tech era and they learn and behave differently that we used to do. Are we going to keep teaching our homescholers that advocate open source software is a new good behaviour. That social networking is a way of life, the only thing you should be aware of is safety.

Miguel Guhlin, makes a very ed-resistance round up where he presents the pro and cons of advocating copyrights, civil disobedience and Paulo Freire's thoughts. Do we want critical thinking students or do we want a new society who obeys his boss, don't ask questions and ever denied something others ask to be done.

As educators new and experienced all know the learning and teaching it's not a free ideological field. Our kids are taught social studies by teachers who are either Republicans or Democrats in the best cases, because other group will hate politics as many in the society still do. Guhlin, ends his post with a very strong question: "Are you about freedom, helping children deal critically and creatively with reality to transform their world, or are you about reality bytes?"

Society and education really matters!
