The 8 Digital Skills Students Need for The Future ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | BookSmart | Scoop.it
Cindy Huskey's insight:

The first three skills are essential for all consumers of digital content. Let’s face it –  there’s a serious decline in our kids’ ability to evaluate online information and write effectively. Not to mention their lack of social and moral ethics when posting to Facebook and Twitter. How do we educate our kids? Advocate the teaching of information literacy.

Benefits of Learning Languages Infographic | Kaplan Blog

Benefits of Learning Languages Infographic | Kaplan Blog | BookSmart | Scoop.it
What do you think are the biggest benefits of learning languages? Check out our infographic for some interesting, fun and quirky facts!
Cindy Huskey's insight:

I stumbled upon this infographic serendipitously and felt compelled to share.  It seems that foreign language classes in high school are viewed by students as one more requirement towards graduation - nothing more, nothing less.  I suppose I'm a different breed of human, but I wanted to learn to speak French more than saying hello and reciting the ABC's. So, I bought a conversational French book and practiced - get this - outside of class. By the time I was in college, I could speak almost fluently and even carry on a conversation without sounding ridiculous. Who knew all the mental benefits of learning a new language?
