CAN TECH CLOSE THE GAP? Panel asks whether technology can reduce the yawning gap in student performance

By Dave Boyce Almanac Staff Writer

igital technology is a disruptive force that is and has been upending many established institutions, including publishing, entertainment and what constitutes working for a living. While it has made inroads into education, it’s still debatable whether it has a useful role in the complex learning that leads to lifelong creativity and the ability to think critically. COMPLETED COURSE WORK FOR COLLEGE ADMISSION ENROLLED IN AT LEAST ONE ADVANCED COURSE

Is digital technology a force for good in the classroom, or do these flat screens simply add bells and whistles to the material? If the promise is genuine, when might it come to pass? Most important, can it help bridge the longstanding achievement gap between students with socioeconomic advantages — such as family wealth, great teachers and educated and involved parents — and those students, often students of color, who lack such advantages in their homes and communities?

The gap is real in the Sequoia Union High School District, which includes Menlo-Atherton and Woodside high schools. For the Class of 2011, the demographics are stark, according to a recent presentation by Brandon Lee of the district’s research and evaluation office. For example, an assessment of who did and who did not complete the coursework needed for college admission showed 75 percent and 69 percent, respectively, of Continued on page 23

Town of Atherton City Council Meeting

CAN TECH CLOSE THE GAP? Continued from page 21

students of Asian and Caucasian ethnicity had completed the work versus 25 percent of students of Hispanic and African American ethnicity and 19 percent of students of Pacific Islander heritage. A similar pattern appeared among students taking at least one higher level course, commonly called advanced-placement (AP) classes. Organized by ethnicity, students of Asian descent led with 77 percent, followed by 62 percent for Caucasian students, 37 percent for Hispanic students, 13 percent for African American students, and 12 percent for Pacific Islander students. Among kids whose socioeconomic situation includes low family income and parents who have no post-secondary education, 18 percent took at least one AP class. Among students whose first language is not English, 5 percent took a class. Is technology of significant value in addressing this problem? About 100 people, including many teachers and entrepreneurs, gathered on a rainy night on March 27 at the Woodside High School Performing Arts Center to hear four professionals discuss the issue and take questions. On stage for the discussion were: ■ Karen Cator, who directs the U.S. Office of Educational Technology. Ms. Cator’s career includes corporate and publicsector advocacy for technology in education, according to a bio that also notes that she has “devoted her career to creating the best possible learning environments for this generation of students.” ■ Alan Louie, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist with a focus on K-12 education and deep roots in high technology. His current activity is funding small-scale innovation teams of an educator and one or two programmers. Some examples: classdojo.com reinforces positive behaviors in the classroom; goalbookapp.com allows a student’s personal learning plan to be shared with the student and involved adults; and remind101.com allows teachers to send text messages to students via their parents. ■ Woodside High Principal David Reilly, a champion of innovation in educa-

tion techniques at traditional high schools. He established Woodside High’s later start to the school day in response to research showing its benefits; he is an advocate of “flipping school,” in which students listen to lectures at home on a computer and do problem-solving and homework at school; and he is currently exploring year-round school, in part to give teachers extended time to collaborate and develop professionally.

‘I’d take a teacher in a cave over 1,000 Smart Boards in 1,000 classrooms.’ —David Reilly, principal, Woodside High School ■ Asking the questions was Elizabeth “Betsy” Corcoran, a former journalist who has written for Forbes magazine and the Washington Post. She is a co-founder of EdSurge, a newsletter on entrepreneurship in education technology. The event’s host was the nonprofit Peninsula College Fund, which helps low-income students get to, and graduate from, college despite having come from families with no history of post-secondary education. Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park and Woodside High sponsored the discussion.

Digital divide

Technology already perks up classrooms in the form of electronic whiteboards and networked computers, not to mention students with smart phones. Ms. Corcoran asked whether a divide exists between kids who are entertained by smart phones and kids who can program them. “This is a worry for me,” Mr. Louie of Imagine K12 said. “We’re very concerned about education for everybody. I’d like to see solid citizens with an awareness of math, science, literature.” It is “really key” to help teachers on how to use appli-

cations so they can help their students figure out how to use them, Ms. Cator added. People used to learn from other people, she noted. With the invention of the printing press, the opportunities to learn came from people and books. Now the opportunities come from people and books and technology. “There are lots of ways to learn today, often through technology ... the kinds of things that power up an opportunity to learn,” Ms. Cator said. “This is a very, very cool time.” “I’d take a teacher in a cave over 1,000 Smart Boards in 1,000 classrooms,” Mr. Reilly said. Teaching students to think critically is “hard to do on a flat screen,” he said. “This is sort of like the Wild West. We are still in the early stages of settling cyberspace. We need to get out in front of the kids and be there waiting. We have to be there waiting to engage students.” One of his proposals to get teachers out in front would not require much technology: switching to a year-round schedule of four nine-week instruction periods punctuated by four three-week breaks. During the breaks, teachers could collaborate on ideas and advance their understanding of their profession. But this discussion was about technology. “Are we experimenting on our kids?” Ms. Corcoran asked the panel. “We’re experimenting with our kids,” Mr. Louie replied. “We don’t really have a whole lot of time to experiment,” Mr. Reilly said. Invitations to experiment with new software are constant, he added. “We’re just inundated and surrounded. It takes a mountain (of effort) to move (students) away from Facebook.” Referring to Mr. Louie’s funding of small-scale teams of innovators, Mr. Reilly wondered aloud if such funding could be directed to small teams of students to let them develop their own learning tools. Teaching, he said, used to be about “filling the vessel with knowledge,” with the application of that knowledge coming later in life. Today, with education built around real-time projects in which students interact with the real world, they create their own realities, Mr. Reilly said. A

TOWN OF PORTOLA VALLEY NOTICE OF A PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SITE DEVELOPMENT AND ZONING ORDINANCES TO ADJUST PERMIT APPEALS PERIODS AND TIME LIMITS NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the Town of Portola Valley will hold a public hearing on April 18, 2012 to consider amendments to the site development and zoning ordinances relative to permit appeal periods and time limits. The proposed amendments would change the appeal periods for variances and conditional use permits to 15 days from the action on the application. In addition, the proposed amendments would adjust the time limit for a variance to one year from issuance, establish a time limit of one year for a fence permit, and would allow site development permits, variances and fence permits that are issued in conjunction with an architectural review to have a two year time limit. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Town Planner has determined that above described project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines. The amendments only impact appeal and permit life time limits and do not affect land uses or environmental review requirements. Because it can be seen with certainty that the amendments could not have a significant effect on the environment, the project is exempt from CEQA. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the Town of Portola Valley will initiate the public hearing on the proposed amendments at its meeting of April 18, 2012 at 7:30 p.m., Town Hall (Historic Schoolhouse), 765 Portola Road, Portola Valley, California.

You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com using the file number assigned to this case 313-059844.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior

lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 11-5572-11. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the

scheduled sale. Date: 3/22/2012 THE WOLF FIRM, A LAW CORPORATION Foreclosure Department (949) 7209200 Sale Information Only: (714) 573-1965 www.priorityposting.com Renae C.
