"The key part here is that the effort will make computer science an elective in San Francisco’s middle schools. It had just been an after-school offering the year before.
 

“I’m still pushing for computer science to be added to the common core, Some really large districts are shifting toward realizing that computer science is a really important skill and that they need to start teaching it at school. Some teachers are still trying to figure it out. ...
 

Computer science education through programs like Code.org will help more of the local community participate and get jobs in a technology industry that they might otherwise see as insular.

There has been a revitalization in urban gardening as many city dwellers feel disconnected from their food systems; urban gardening is a way for people to actively control what they are ingesting into their systems many fear some of the modern agricultural methods.  Based in Milwaukee, WI, Growing Power has created an interesting combination of vegetable gardening and aquaponics for the urban environment.

Jeremy Hansen's curator insight, October 7, 2014 10:48 AM

With the strong waves of urbanization that the United States has seen in the last 100 years it's interesting to note this desire to return to a rural connection while still maintaining the connection to the city. I can see this causing problems with zoning commissions in the future if too many people start trying to become urban famers.

Indian Removal Map

Indian Removal Map | digital divide information | Scoop.it

This is a political map with a legend. This map illustrates the Native Americans' path and location during the Trail of Tears. This map also shows the location of the American forts, which is interesting because the majority of the forts are built of the land that was assigned to the Native Americas. This showed the use of the military during 1830. From that bit of information it can be inferred that the American's were violent/forceful with their attempts to move the Native Americans. This map was drawn to show the extreme distance the Native Americans were forced to travel. This map just shows how ridiculous the Americans were to force the Native Americans to travel such a great distance. What is the scale of the map and the length of time it took to travel?

Questions to ponder:

1.WHATaccounts for this change?

2.HOWdid the law passed to protect the horses affect their population?

3.WHAT criticism do cattle ranchers have of the horses?
4.HOW has the Bureau of Land Management responded?
5.WHY do some people object to this practice?
6.HOW much money does the U.S. government spend each year on captured horses?

 

7.HOW do you think the current situation can be remedied?

8.WHERE do you locate the source of the wild horse population problem?

9.If you could go back in time, WHAT would you suggest to the people making decisions about this issue? WHY?

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."

What will learning look like in 2024?

What will learning look like in 2024? | digital divide information | Scoop.it
About a month ago I saw a question from the eLearning Guild asking for people’s input on what learning will look like in 2024. Since that day I’ve been thinking about it and meaning to write down my thoughts.

There has since been a discussion on the topic, and several others who wrote down their thoughts.

Here are my thoughts on what learning will look like in 2024. I also hope to see some comments on where you think learning will look like.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 7, 2014 11:15 AM

The section on reality is worth reading several times. The authors argue that little will change in learning in the next decade. There will be a few on the cutting edge and most still trying to control learning. There are many out there who have convinced themselves that their efforts fit the former group and yet are firmly in the latter group.

 

The initial question was drawn from a group referred to as a guild. Guilds were groups of craftspeople who were artisans in their work and craft. That would be teaching.
