Teachers:  How great would it be to use the actual speech?  Can you say, "primary source?"  Here's an idea:  Print it out and let students close read this important speech, too.

Ana Cristina Gil's curator insight, October 12, 2013 4:56 PM

Probably they think that martin Luther king is more important to African American, then the rest of the United States population, but I personally feel that martin Luther king, represent a changing America also he is a very important figure in American history, he should be place in a better location so people that come to visit united states could venerate him as a man who fought for not only for African American but also for every minorities living in the United States.

Norman Chan's curator insight, July 12, 7:50 PM

After watching his speech, I feel that he really worked hard fighting for the African Americans. He must have been really brave to step up and fight for the African American. If there was someone like him at this date, I feel that racism would greatly decreased as many would be inspired one his/her words.

Why is Code Literacy promote less than Writing?  We use computers, maybe more now than we use books.  Yet, our students are not taught how to "write" in computer.

Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog | Bridging Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

Last week Microsoft released the new Windows 8 Operating System. What we have seen so far is quite a break from how they have done things in the past, getting rid of the Start menu and implementing Metro – a re-imagining of what Windows will be going forward with. There are lots of implications about what this all means going forward. They are supporting multiple form factors from traditional desktops and laptops to tablets as well as the more modern and power efficient ARM processor architectures. What does this mean for schools?

The habits themselves aren't new at all, and significant work has already been done in the areas of these "thinking habits." However, in a 21st century learning environment -- one often inundated with information, stimulation and connectivity -- there may be a newfound context for their application.

Beyond Gingras: Tech Innovation Alone Will Not Democratize Media

Beyond Gingras: Tech Innovation Alone Will Not Democratize Media | Bridging Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

"If we want to make real progress, here are some places to start: Get broadband in every home. Teach technological skills through information literacy and critical thinking skills through media literacy. Enhance public and other alternative media sources so we don't have to depend almost exclusively on commercial, corporate-controlled content. Establish policies that increase competition and diversity in the media system. Make sure students master fundamental reading, writing and thinking skills necessary to succeed in college, on the job and as democratic citizens. These are the skills educators and employers often lament that students lack."
