Navigating through the myriad of resources available for digital mass communication, it is quite for any one to stumble upon face book, my space, you tube, tweeter, microsoft, google, yahoo, and many others social networks that make millons with the registered members and their own marketing. Nothing constructive comes out of this systems, we also have adult education, vocational education, occupational education, hybrid education and meny other types of education, yet we do not have a web site that you register and bingo you are in class as easy as the social networks. I propose to build an scholastic web site k-12 where any one with an android, mp3, can study their subject of interes with out limitations, that is only posible making mas media technology usefull for the purpose of education. I am designing a prototype where education can be abailable to the tip of a button, but blackboards and whiteboards are good tools to enhance learning and make education functional. Education becomes functional when there is double inter action at any time where ever, and whom ever using the technology today.
Many students in K-12 education are failing to meet adequate yearly progress (AYP) goals within their district. The No Child Left behind Act (NCLB) requiring all students to meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) goals has not occurred. Students in other countries, such as ___South America__________ and ___Indochina___________ are surpassing U.S. students in academic achievement in math, science, and reading. Approximately _80___ % of American has basic technology available within their homes; however, technology is one element within the educational school system that is under utilized in the K-12 for instructional purposes. Many schools support and encourage the use of a variety of available and free web 2.0 technologies; however, the disconnect is found in firewalls that will not allow access for the use of such resources. Administrators and Legislators fail to reach an agreement on the needs for 21st century students that are intimately tied to a social networked community. This qualitative phenomenological research study explored the experiences of X#s K-12 teachers in the district. The themes covered are unreachable beyon their respective classrooms, any place should be a good place for studieng were the learner can text and communicate a theme or a subject of study instantly. The findings of this study support the need for more target funding for professional development, permission to allow students to use personal social media equipment, such as cell phones, Face-book, web logs, androids, you tube, tweeter, MP3’s, etc., to increase exposure and authentic ways to support learning with the use of social media tools students are currently comfortable using now.
