W. Bradley Gooderham's curator insight, June 20, 2014 11:22 PM

In 2013/14, I only used novels in English class and even then only to provide time away from a screen.  Every other class and activity used digital resources and engaged technology to find, sort, contextualize, and share information.   This is a very interesting infographic. 

Dyana Mason's curator insight, June 23, 2014 11:06 PM

Digital devices are re-shaping the classroom. I've seen some new tools in action.  As educators, we should learn how students are using these new tools and adjust our teaching appropriately.

Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's curator insight, July 8, 2014 8:09 PM

This definitely speaks to the support that older students will need to be successful in online programs!  For some of these students, the technology learning curve will be steep but doable....... especially if they are used to reading a book in print!

What happened when a Siberian village gave up alcohol?

What happened when a Siberian village gave up alcohol? | Digital School | Scoop.it

     The self-imposed ban on selling - and drinking - alcohol  in Tumul village, population 989, in the Sakha Republic (also known as Yakutia), has revolutionised life in this settlement in the Russian Federation's largest, and coldest, region. 
     The dry law was introduced after a new head of the local district was elected three years ago, a man called Vasily Alexeyev, with a mission to banish the negative impact of alcoholism. He persuaded local shops to stop selling drink and won a - seemingly - unanimous vote among residents to back the booze ban.
     'All the villagers voted for this,' he said. 'People just got together and decided. It's the choice of people who live here, it's their right. If previously we had two or three criminal cases a year, since 2013 the crime rate dropped to zero. There is no crime.'
     This is because 'alcohol was the main reason of all crime' in the past. 'In fact, the refusal to drink alcohol comes entirely from the determination of villagers, he said. 'We banned sales but no-one actually banned drinking. The locals gave up drinking themselves, and choose a healthy lifestyle,' he said. 
     Sickness also declined, by 50%, suggesting that many days off work in the past - whatever the actual reason - were driven by alcohol. Now, sports are flourishing in this village, some 230 kilometres north-east of Yakutsk, the regional capital. The local gym has become a focal point in the community, operating now from 5am until 10pm.

Presbyterian Church (USA) to Allow Clergy to Marry Same-Sex Couples

Cee Harmon's curator insight, June 20, 2014 1:41 PM

Presbyterian clergy are now allowed to marry gay and lesbian couples in states where same-sex marriage is legal.  The PCUSA 221st General Assembly approved an amendment to its Book of Order that would change the definition of marriage from one man and one woman to "two people."  This comes three years after the PCUSA voted to allow the ordination of gay and lesbian clergy.
