Selfies Replace Focus on Big Picture

Selfies Replace Focus on Big Picture | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"The new raft of minidevices are ingenious and much more powerful than even the high-end desktop computers of a decade ago. But this wave of technology is not doing much except, perhaps, to make us ever more distracted, disconnected and obsessed with trivia.  Perhaps the biggest loss here may be psychological, the decline of what historian Frederick Jackson Turner called 'the expansive character of American life.' Instead of exploring new frontiers, we now obsess over mobile apps, and our Big Picture has devolved into a procession of 'selfies.' If anything, in most critical areas, such as housing and transport, we seem to be looking backward, to the days of small apartments, trolley cars or trains. A crowded, poorer future, not a tech nirvana, beckons."

The Name Game: Ex-offenders and Labeling Theory

The Name Game: Ex-offenders and Labeling Theory | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
This post applies a basic concept found in labeling theory to the Office of Justice Program's new initiative to erase certain language from their references to individuals released from prison. In this post, Ami Stearns argues that a rose by any other name may not be a rose anymore at all- at least not within the context of the criminal justice system.

More specifically, American teachers are underpaid when compared to teachers in the nations we compete with. Let me begin with a picture showing how we compare to Finland—everyone’s favorite educational success story and a country not noted for paying its teachers especially well. Then we’ll talk some about the right way to make international teacher salary comparisons. After that, some more data.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

It's June, the month of love... and expensive weddings. Chances are you have been to a June wedding, you were married in June, or you know that June is a popular month for nuptials. In this post, Ami Stearns examines the increasing costs of wedding ceremonies through the "big three" sociological theories: conflict, functionalism, and symbolic interactionism.

Here is another example of cultural commodification and cultural appropriation.  As stated in the article, there is nothing illegal in this, but most companies stay away because the negative publicity for being sleazy is a enough of a cultural and economic deterrent to conform to the more accepted norms of society.
