8 Etymology maps

8 Etymology maps | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Who would have thought that the marriage of two tiny little words - pine from the Latin 'pīnus' meaning "sap, juice" and apple from 'apple' meaning "apple" would have split the UK from the rest of the world way back when it was first recorded in 1398?

And what about the word orange? Or beer? Or bear? Or church? Do our language lands collide or do they coincide? Find out with these eight fun etymology maps complete with terrible puns.

Why smartphones alone won’t close the digital divide | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Smartphones provide access to online information, but they are limited for doing homework, taking courses or applying for jobs. The Legislature and internet service companies should partner to ensure that all eligible low-income Californians receive affordable broadband plans and computers.

Where Preschool Doesn't Cost a Dime

Where Preschool Doesn't Cost a Dime | digital divide information | Scoop.it
BRISTOL, England—Any child in England who has turned 3 by Sept. 1 is guaranteed 15 hours a week of free childcare or preschool for 38 weeks a year, or 570 hours total, paid for by the national government.

“We don’t think of it as socialism at all,” said the Oxford University professor Edward Melhuish, who studies child development and was instrumental in conducting the research that largely led to England’s current policies. “We think of it as common sense.”

Fault Lines: America's Most Segregating School District Borders

Fault Lines: America's Most Segregating School District Borders | digital divide information | Scoop.it
A comprehensive, national analysis identifies the 50 most segregating school district borders in the country.

 

Description by EdBuild:

 

"Income-based segregation between school districts is rising. Today, high-poverty school districts enroll half of America's schoolchildren. Often these high poverty districts neighbor wealthier school systems where children have access to greater resources. Because property taxes play such an important role in school funding, affluent communities have an incentive to establish school district borders around their neighborhoods in order to ensure that the benefit of their wealth is reserved for their children alone. When the families with means isolate themselves in wealthy districts, low-income children are left behind and income segregation between school districts increases.

 

"This report presents the results of EdBuild’s analysis of the degree of income segregation across America's school district borders. In particular, it highlights trends among the 50 most segregating borders, and tells the stories of Detroit, MI; Birmingham, AL; Clairton, PA; Dayton, OH; and Balsz, AZ, whose borders with wealthy neighboring districts are the most segregated in the country."

5 Reasons to Read for Reluctant Readers

5 Reasons to Read for Reluctant Readers | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Teachers may offer up a killer classroom library and carve out class time for silent reading, but these two things do not guarantee prolific reading, or even moderate reading from your students. One of my goals when I was teaching high school was this: to have students fall in love with reading while they were in my classroom (or at least like it a little more).

So how do you motivate secondary students in a deeper, lifelong reader way? It's not just about helping a student find that right book, as teachers often see as the ultimate mission, but it's about giving reasons for reading -- and really good ones. Because let's face it, there's plenty of stuff we all have to read that we may not be crazy about, but we know it's good for us. The following motivators are inspired by educator Kelly Gallagher's book, Reading Reasons: Motivational Mini-Lessons for Middle and High School.

The Paradox of Classroom Technology | ASTRA

The Paradox of Classroom Technology | ASTRA | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Governments, schools and systems as well as the philanthropic community have invested heavily in technology to keep up with the demands of 21st century learners. Even after years of huge public and private investments and the sheer number of technology-in-education initiatives (1:1 computing, e-Rate, P-TECH, STEM), one would think that students’ use of digital tools and technology for learning in K-12 settings would be ubiquitous. It is in fact the contrary.
