10 of the Best iPhone Apps for Translating Languages | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Language is a wonderful thing. It is the common thread that binds entire societies, allowing ease of communication and understanding. Finding yourself in a situation where you are unable to adequately communicate, on the other hand, is extremely frustrating. Whether you are travelling abroad or seeking to learn a new language, the more tools you have at your disposal the better.

The Rice Process's curator insight, November 18, 3:52 PM

Parents and teachers need to model gratitude. We know that gratitude is a predictor of feeling happy and content. Children learn early that gratitude is an attitude that contributes to their personal happiness and to the happiness of others.  We all share a common desire to be happy, and gratitude shows us the way.
