Rachel Solomon's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:45 PM

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology. 

Danielle Delgado's curator insight, January 21, 2014 9:54 AM

There's a lot of lists out there, but what I like about this one is that it gives you a lot of food for thought on the lack of usefulness of some tools.

27 tools for diverse learners

27 tools for diverse learners | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Something remarkable has happened in the past decade. New discoveries about the workings of the learning brain have converged with advancements in educational technology to finally make possible the kinds of flexible learning environments that students need to prepare for their future.

According to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, flexibility is key because it allows educators to accommodate their students’ natural variability in learning styles and preferences. While UDL is not just about technology, this idea is at the heart of how technology can make personalized learning a reality.

Being white, and a minority, in Georgia

Being white, and a minority, in Georgia | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"A generation ago, this Atlanta suburb was 95 percent white and rural with one little African-American neighborhood that was known as 'colored town.’ But after a wave of Hispanic and Asian immigrants who were attracted to Norcross by cheap housing and proximity to a booming job market, white people now make up less than 20 percent of the population in Norcross and surrounding neighborhoods. It’s a shift so rapid that many of the longtime residents feel utterly disconnected from the place where they raised their children."

This article touches on some pretty weighty (and sensitive) topics, but in a fairly nuanced manner.  Local ethnic neighborhoods change as international migration patterns bring in new residents and this demographic shift can is currently impacting national political parties.  That's geography, various processes at a variety of scales that are all interconnected.

Community & Culture | NCAI | digital divide information | Scoop.it
American Indians and Alaska Natives have some of the richest and most storied cultures on the planet. Yet Native cultures—and the traditions, languages, and religious practices they encompass—often face threats from mainstream society. NCAI works to overcome these threats by educating non-Native people and turning back attacks on Native cultures and lifeways. Native culture is central to the identity of tribal nations and Native people. NCAI will continue to stand with tribal nations to protect Native cultures for today and for generations to come.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 6, 1:13 PM

The Indian government doesn't want to seem threatened by the fact that China is paying for better transportation infrastructure that is essentially in their backyard.  India's neighbors are excited for the potential economic growth that this can bring, but weary of China's added clout and power throughout Asia.  As Parag Khanna argues is his new book Connectography, infrastructure and economic linkages will become increasingly more important to geopolitics and global economics; within that lens, China is certainly making a power move here.
