Geo-literacy extends far beyond knowing where places are on a map.  National Geographic Education has put an emphasis on geo-literacy, which entails spatial thinking skills and understanding systems in addition to content knowledge about locations and places.

Kyle Kampe's curator insight, May 28, 11:09 PM

In AP Human Geo., this relates to the concepts of geo-literacy and spatial perspective because it indicates that for a population to be knowledgeable about geography, it must go above the mere rote memorization of toponyms and instead explore the spatial characteristics of places.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Education 4 the market | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Shanelle Zaino's curator insight, October 16, 12:14 PM

It is good to see  Mexico is being considered as an up and coming country on the global stage. It was interesting to see this graphic depicting the influx of migration to Mexico. It was also very interesting to read that more people are immigrating to Mexico than the U.S.. This is a fact that is not often made apparent when there is a discussion about immigration in the U.S. 

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, October 16, 8:04 PM

While in the United States we often view Mexico as a source of immigrants in search of jobs and stability, while in actuality the scenario is some what different. What the US is to Mexico, Mexico is to numerous Middle Americans. These are people leaving destitute areas looking for employment. Articles like this are important in the fact they shine light onto topics many people they they already are experts of.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 20, 11:15 AM

As jobs become less and less available in the United States, it does not surprise me that the number of migrants from the US to Mexico is growing. Globalization is shifting the job markets for production through North America. That is bolster by NAFTA and because production is cheaper in Mexico for US companies, more jobs in production are popping up. My question is that will we see this happen in the future as Mexico continues to grow, will we see migrations of lower wage workers more south to countries that are cheap for companies.

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos | Education 4 the market | Scoop.it

The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. Now, they’ve taken a step back and realized some things shouldn’t be in lecture form, and therefore shouldn’t be videos either. Instead, the two teachers have embraced what they call mastery learning, with an emphasis on students taking control of their own learning. Instructional videos are an optional part of a bigger move towards asynchronous learning.

Michael Mazo's curator insight, October 6, 2:54 PM

Ebola has been a growing concern for some time now. With its origin in Africa to its spreading throughout the world, people have become increasingly worried about contracting Ebola. With the initial diagnosis of the first patient infected with Ebola in the US, the CDC has been working constantly to prevent further spread of this infectious disease. Not only has this raised medical concerns, but as soon as the Ebola outbreak has entered the United States Biotechnology stocks began to rise. With the help of devices and programs stemming from Biotechnology there is great hope for eradicating the disease once and for all. Even healthcare workers are hesitant upon working with infected individuals, so hopefully biotech will enter with a grand entrance by providing materials or machinery to help prevent these workers from getting Ebola.

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, October 16, 11:46 AM

Although Ebola is a disease that can be stopped now, different measures need to be taken now. With the vaccines that were administered to the Ebola aid workers that were working in the site of the outbreak, mass production of that vaccine should be created and made available to those who are believed to be infected with this parasite.
