Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I thought this article was pretty interesting because before opening it I thought it'd be something more like homework strategies and de-stress types of things or having fun so when I read change and tire and jump start a car it took me by surprise. These are definitely things, especially girls, should know before they leave if they go super far away from home. I don't know how to change a tire but if I did I could do it myself super fast and not worry about some creepy guy approaching me or anything.

Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty

Why girls’ education can help eradicate poverty | Current Events | Scoop.it
Education is linked to the age at which women marry and have children. In sub-Saharan Africa and in South and West Asia, child marriage affects one in eight girls; one in seven gives birth by the age of 17.

 

Providing girls with a quality education also equips them with the confidence to confront people in power and challenge the inequalities that still exist for girls and women worldwide. Consider Mariam Khalique, a teacher in Pakistan who has used education to build her female students’ confidence and to encourage them to stand up for their rights.

 

One of her pupils was the young education activist Malala Yousafzai, whose global advocacy work is proof of the transformative power of quality schooling.

Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I think this is a really great article. I think these girls should definitely have more of a say of when they have children and when they get married. I think it's only right in this new age generation and these types of things shouldn't still be going on. I think they should be allowed to further their education without a worry of getting married or having to have children.

One of the biggest moral imperatives of our times - ensure the education of every girl on the planet.. the rewards are boundless.

The Miley Cyrus Effect: Leveraging Current Events in your Content Strategy

The Miley Cyrus Effect: Leveraging Current Events in your Content Strategy | Current Events | Scoop.it
Recently, I’ve noticed a spike in the rate at which pop cultural current events get picked up in both major and minor media.

Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I thought that this was really interesting. The fact that people falsly put celebrities names in reticules just to get views is kind of sad. Over the years you can see how people start obsessing over celebrities than real media and events going on. Even if they hate that celebrity they will give them views by making fun of them instead of just seeing what else is happening in the world and ignoring them.

The Future of College: How Online Education is Changing Everything

The Future of College: How Online Education is Changing Everything | Current Events | Scoop.it

Online education is making a big splash in higher education. Here are just some of the ways a growing online education industry might change traditional college and our world.

Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I think this article is very important because online is coming to school more and more. More people are taking online classes because it's easier to take them on their own time or because they're lazy and don't want to go to class. I'm not a fan of such classes because I feel like I have to physically be here to learn my best but people are different with their learning abilities so this might be the best option for some.

It's going to be crazy to see what college will be like in 40 years, you might be able to take all your classes from home. Or it could be the same. We don't know, all we know is that things are going to change.

Margaret Silhasek's comment, May 9, 2014 3:16 PM
It kind of stinks knowing that my college experience could be totally different and include online learning. I definitely prefer the face-to-face lectures and using a textbook, pencil, and paper.

I think that this article really gave insight to what we could see education as in the next 10-15 years. It is amazing to think about.

State Passes Law to Legalize Shooting Police

State Passes Law to Legalize Shooting Police | Current Events | Scoop.it
Finally some rational legislation is passed concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s property. All too often, we see examples of cops breaking into the wrong house and shooting the family dog, or worse, killing a member of the family. Well, Indiana has taken action to “recognize the unique character of a citizen's home and to…

Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I though that this was pretty interesting because you'd never think it'd happen. I understand the reasoning behind making it a law but I don't really agree with it. In some aspects its great but it's true that anyone can use this as an advantage to kill a cop without the cop actually invaded said persons space.

Education, Current EventsThe MissourianThere was a time when current events classes were almost a routine course for high school students.

Via Ryan Soupal
Adrianna Castelo's insight:

I thought this article was pretty interesting because I've never really thought that current issues were a big deal and if we would've had more classes or even talked about it more I would probably keep up with them a lot more and be more educated. So I think that this brings up the topic that kids should be required to take a current events class or at least talk about it more in a classroom.
