A Healthy Media Diet

Recently, I’ve been trying to a more balanced intake of news and social media. A few months ago, after a conversation with some friends, I realised I had been in a bit of an ‘echochamber online’ regarding the news; the contents I was reading were just repeating the same things over and over. I wanted to broaden my worldview a bit, and when I looked at the sources I was reading, I realised some of them were a bit extreme and even polarizing. I started looking at different communities online to get a wider view of the news. It was definitely eye-opening. I found that a lot of the opinions I had of those “on the other side” were far from reality. Talking with people holding different ideas and values helped me unravel their way of thinking and arguments I had not fully understood before. I have to admit it was frustrating at times, I’m planning on sticking to it and even getting into more technical sources, like professional or scholarly .

STARTING THE DAY WITH MAGIC BREAKFAST 

Thanks to their partnership with a charity called Magic Breakfast, hundreds of primary schools in the UK provide a good breakfast to over 23,500 UK schoolchildren every school day. Without this, they would start school on an empty stomach. These children, who come from deprived backgrounds, are offered a free breakfast before classes begin. The support of sponsors like supermarkets, and cereal and bagel manufacturers means each nutritious breakfast costs the charity just 22 pence per child. The popularity of the breakfast clubs with pupils is not only down to the tasty food which ends morning hunger pangs, but also the chance to socialise with some of the staff. The atmosphere is relaxed enough for pupils to chat about their problems over breakfast before lessons begin.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Children whose last meal on arrival at school was lunch the day before are so hungry that they can not concentrate. Some exhibit behavioral problems. A study published by health experts in the Journal of Public Health Nutrition bears out the importance of Magic Breakfast’s work. It found that a healthy breakfast is connected with higher academic performance. Of schools that took part in the research, 84 percent reported breakfast club attendance had a positive impact on educational attainment, 95 percent said pupils had greater alertness and energy levels.

Magic Breakfast is a charity that feeds children in 460 primary schools in the UK. It works with schools where over 35 percent of the people are eligible for free school meals. There are over 300 schools waiting to join the scheme. Its goal is to make sure that by 2020, there are no children in the UK too hungry to learn.

OH, NO! NOT ANOTHER TEST

Think about the last test you took. How much of what you learned for the test do you still remember? Many people take tests to pass a course or get a promotion, but they often forget the information afterward! This is especially the case for people taking large international tests like TOEFL or IELTS. These tests usually involve multiple-choice questions, and people often study to increase their scores, not to learn important information. In fact, educators are divided on whether these kinds of tests are the most effective way to assess a person’s abilities.

Those who support such tests say they are the only way for educators and employers to compare people based on their test scores. However, there are people trying to reform this system. They believe that standard tests aren’t the best way to measure a person’s ability. These reformers also believe that intelligent people are not always good at taking tests or memorizing facts. A multiple-choice test cannot always tell what people have learned, or whether they can apply that knowledge in the future.

Reformers believe that other types of evaluation achieve better results. Tests that contain a mix of written and spoken questions give a more complete assessment of what the person is capable of. A portfolio, or a collection of work done throughout a course, can show how much the student has improved individually. Group interviews, where a group of people are interviewed at the same time, can also be useful for employers since they show how people interact with others.

Alternative educational institutions such as Montessori and Waldorf schools don’t believe that education should be focused on testing. At these schools, the classroom is very relaxed and “free,” with students learning from each other as much as they learn from teachers. Some of these schools even allow students to choose what they study. Teachers create activities designed to let students show their abilities or knowledge of a certain subject. In these schools, the focus is on learning by experiencing and doing things.

The debate on testing continues, and educators have yet to find a perfect method of evaluating learning. Until that day comes, old test methods will be used and new test methods will continue to develop. But one thing’s for sure, testing will continue to play an important part in all our lives - so study hard!
