Failed Rap - a digital story by Joven Senoran

A story about a rap, a mentor, and giving back. This story was made in a workshop facilitated by the Center for Digital Storytelling (http://www.storycenter).
Paulo Tomás Neves's insight:

«"Why do you volunteer?" The SharedTime project asks volunteers at nonprofits in Toronto to answer this question and to probe deeply, unearthing the real reasons they started – and continue – to give back. Over the past two years, the Center for Digital Storytelling has worked with Volunteer Toronto on the SharedTime project to help capture the spirit of volunteerism in Toronto.»

Robin Good's curator insight, April 5, 2013 4:00 AM



Here's an excellent visual poster illustrating the key differences between the type of SEO activities that were effectve back in the days before Google Panda and Google Penguin made their first appearances, and the ones that are appropriate and effective today.


Things have changed a lot in these last two years, and this visual diagram does a great job of reviewing and synthesizing what has really changed.


Whether you are new to web publishing or have a long established web presence, I think you will find lots of valuable information in here as well as many confirmations of things you thought but weren't sure of when it comes to SEO.



Up-to-date. Factual. Informative. Must-read. 8/10

Surviving the Peace: Angola

Surviving the Peace: Angola | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
Paulo Tomás Neves's insight:

A documentary film depicting the interconnected stories of an eight-year-old landmine survivor, Minga d'Olinda, and a former soldier turned MAG deminer, Eron Pedro. Both Minga and Eron represent the plight of so many people in Angola who are still struggling landmines a decade after the civil war ended.

 

 

The film was shot on location in Angola during July 2012. MAG America's Marketing Manager accompanied filmmakers, Rick Gershon and Nathan Golon from MediaStorm, for the production and shooting of this film. As you will experience during the film, Angola is a beautiful country filled with heartbreak and redemption.

Top 10 countries for 2013 | Globe Spots

Top 10 countries for 2013 | Globe Spots | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

For the fifth year, we have captured what's happening on the travel scene. As usual, we focused on destinations we think will be hot - or at least should be. All this is of course based on dubious rumours, crazy speculations and a bit of travel experience.

 

#1

Portugal oozes 'old European charm'. Medieval towns and historical quarters are full of squares, churches and monasteries. Narrow lanes are flanked by old skew houses with crooked balconies draped in drying laundry. Here, neighbours still share the latest gossip or discuss politics from their windows. Pastry shops and taverns are found in such abundance it makes you wonder whether the Portuguese eat at home at all. The pace is soothingly slow and any day seems to be a good day for a drink. Chances are that after a few days in Portugal, you’ll find yourself sitting in a small square with a glass of tawny port in your hand, no matter whether you previously liked the stuff or not. It's just one of those things Portugal does to you

Berlin Exhibition on Judaism Hits a Nerve

Berlin Exhibition on Judaism Hits a Nerve | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

“The Whole Truth,” a show at the Jewish Museum in Berlin, includes a Jewish person sitting in a glass box for two hours every day except Saturday. 

The idea of a living Jew serving as a museum exhibit in the former capital of the Nazi Reich touched a nerve, as evidenced by some of the comments on the museum’s Facebook page. “Our grandparents and friends spent enough time in boxcars on the way to concentration camps,” wrote one user who gave the name Debra Wewer. “How dare you!”

Fun, Intrigue and Drama in Adventureland | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
I’ve loved adventure games since I was young. It’s a passion that began with choose-your-own-adventure books and grew with the games for my wonderful 8-bit home computer. Now we have smartphones and tablets, and no matter how cool those early adventure games were, they can’t rival the fun, intrigue and drama of playing a point-and-click adventure on a touch screen.

Creating Curriculum with Meaning and Purpose

Creating Curriculum with Meaning and Purpose | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
I have come to realize when it comes to curriculum, nothing is more important than the child, and the willingness to remain flexible with the planning process. This creative process is art, and contributes to what Seth Godin refers to as becoming indispensable in his twelfth book,Linchpin. There is not one right way to do this.
