‘Student Agency’ Is Not Something You Give or Take | digital divide information | Scoop.it
I feel strange saying that I, a Davidson College Junior named Andrew, have obtained ‘Student Agency.’ Does that make me a ‘Student Agent,’ a sort of James Bond of the educational Free Will? Does that mean I can drop out? Have I made it?Well, no. I haven’t made it. Because ‘agency’ is a capacity that

Michel Santiago del Pino's curator insight, October 18, 2015 4:43 AM

El artículo aporta un punto de partida válido, pero hay que desarrollar los caminos adaptándolos a las necesidades del contexto formativo particular. Habrá que tener en cuenta que la propuesta carece de la integración de una alfabetización mediática adecuada, esto es enseñar acerca de los medios y vincular este aprendizaje con prácticas pedagógicas y actividades escolares tanto interdisciplinares como centradas en las diversas materias curriculares.

While this article addresses early childhood education, some of the points can be applied in other K12 and even higher education settings.

The Newseum is a treasure chest of resources for teachers. I attended a teacher workshop that was interesting, exciting and which provided many resources to use in understanding the news.

News is the power in Washington DC.without any lessons, but it is imperative to have a handle on what is news.

The Historical Geographies of the Fortune Cookie

The Historical Geographies of the Fortune Cookie | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"What we call Chinese food (including the fortune-filled cookies) has become an integral part of the American culture and cuisine, with a complex history that dates back to the 19th Century."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 29, 2015 8:28 AM

This  99 Percent Invisible podcast explores the fascinating story of the Americanization of Chinese food, and the icon of Chinese food in the States, the  fortune cookie (no, that is decidedly NOT from China).  This is yet another podcast from 99 Percent Invisible that is rich in geographic content. 

 

That first podcast is reminiscent of a second podcast from  NPR about an American-style Chinese restaurant that opened in Shanghai to cater to Americans living in China who miss 'Chinese food' as it's made back home.  What's the name of the restaurant?  Fortune Cookie, of course.

John Puchein's curator insight, November 6, 2015 10:44 AM

As with some other cultures, the Chinese food we eat is different from it original homeland (Mexican food is another example). Many thing the fortune cookie if from China, but it is an American idea.
