Some 250,000 tons of Nutella are now sold across 75 countries around the world every year, according to the OECD. Nutella is a perfect example of what globalization has meant for popular foodstuffs: Not only is it sold everywhere, but its ingredients are sourced from all over the place too.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, January 28, 2014 1:26 PM

Some things that we take for granted are and come from all over the world. As you said in last class just because something says that it is not made in China doesnt mean that their arent any resources that the company used to creat the item that didn't come from China or any other power house place. In this case the Palm Oil comesd from Malaysia, Hazelnut comes from Turkey, Cocoa from Nigeria, Vainilla from Brazil and, Vainilla and Sugar from France.

Amanda Morgan's curator insight, September 18, 2014 10:55 AM

I was surprised to see how many countries contribute to s single jar of nutella. I have always assumed it came straight from Italy just because it is an Italian commodity. It is a positive thing to see because you look at the commerce and trade that is generated throughout the world through this one brand alone

The  evolution of data storage has been very interesting to watch, I can remember buying audio tapes, then compact disks, them digital music downloads, now we are entering into a new technology like Trent Reznor's Beats, which allows full access to any and all music for a relatively small fee.


Other types of Data storage have evolved even more dynamically, evidenced by the following infographic.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 12, 2014 11:41 AM

Ken Robinson said the same thing. From kindergarten on, creativity declines. What some people took out of Robinson's message was that digital technologies is the future. That was only a small part, almost negligible, of his message. Unschooling requires a lot of resources which many parents do not have access to i.e. time, but done well it is part of the future of School.

Top 15 Firefox OS Apps: The Ultimate List For New Firefox OS Users ~makeuseof

Top 15 Firefox OS Apps: The Ultimate List For New Firefox OS Users ~makeuseof | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by Elio Qoshi

 

“There is an app for that”. Of course there is an app for that: It’s web technology after all.

 

"That is the philosophy behind Mozilla’s mobile operating system Firefox OS that, instead of native code, uses HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript for its apps.

 

"Sounds cool? It is! Firefox OS has recently launched in India, making a huge impact with the super affordable Intex Cloud FX device, retailing for only $33 USD. Approximately 50,000 devices have been sold already, and it is expected to reach 500,000 by the end of November for the Intex Cloud FX Device alone. Yes, Firefox OS is gaining traction slowly, but surely.

 

"There are several reasons why you should care about Firefox OS though, even as an Android, iOS or Windows Phone user. Not because it is super fancy and on the bleeding edge, but because it relies on 100% open technologies, is secure and also respects your privacy. As a non-profit organization, Mozilla has a completely different stance on privacy to Google, Apple or Microsoft."

Is coding the new literacy?

Is coding the new literacy? | digital divide information | Scoop.it

...you might be forgiven for thinking that learning code is a short, breezy ride to a lush startup job with a foosball table and free kombucha, especially given all the hype about billion-dollar companies launched by self-taught wunderkinds (with nary a mention of the private tutors and coding camps that helped some of them get there). The truth is, code—if what we're talking about is the chops you'd need to qualify for a programmer job—is hard, and lots of people would find those jobs tedious and boring.

 

But let's back up a step: What if learning to code weren't actually the most important thing? It turns out that rather than increasing the number of kids who can crank out thousands of lines of JavaScript, we first need to boost the number who understand what code can do. As the cities that have hosted Code for America teams will tell you, the greatest contribution the young programmers bring isn't the software they write. It's the way they think. It's a principle called "computational thinking," and knowing all of the Java syntax in the world won't help if you can't think of good ways to apply it.

Susan Einhorn's curator insight, September 12, 2014 12:41 PM

Interesting exploration of issues ranging from differentiating the value of coding from that of computational thinking, computational thinking and computer literacy as a new, essential literacy, the lack of minorities and women in computer science, the lack of computer science classes in US schools, etc. And, of course, the mention of kids in Vietnam tackling what seems to be a tough topic in programming for older kids in the US - loops -  easily as they program in Logo.
