If this is how powerful social media is...how can districts continue to ban it from schools? In thinking about school design, social media is essential to leverage.

Thus, the first step is the understanding of oneness. Develop a global perspective by reading the history of other countries, understanding their culture and appreciating their uniqueness. Studying the nature, environment, the balance between the human, plant and animal kingdoms, will make you revere the beauty of creation and in turn shall inspire you to take effort to restore and maintain the balance of nature. Work towards the benefit of the entire world. Undertake impersonal projects for the benefit of others. This should not be limited to just your own country, but should extend to the whole world. The focus of a World Citizen is enhancing global consciousness.

Why Moving to South East Asia was the Best Business Decision I’ve Ever Made

Why Moving to South East Asia was the Best Business Decision I’ve Ever Made | General Interest | Scoop.it
I live a life that makes a lot of people uncomfortable. Together with my husband, I run an affiliate marketing business; and up until 7 months ago we were flatlining. You see our business was growing, slowly.

Stephen Van Delinder's curator insight, July 27, 2013 6:57 PM

One of my uber mentors, Timothy Ferris (@tferris) once wrote that, "Money is multiplied in practical value depending on the number of W's you control in your life: what you do, when you do it, where you do it, and with whom you do it." 

I had the worldview shattering experience to live, work, and travel in Asia for over six months last year. A thought that crossed my mind more than once was how beneficial it would be to have the lifestyle and overhead from SEA with the income from a digital business in the west. Apparently I was not the only person with this idea...

It is encouraging to read articles like this. There are a million definitions for entrepreneurs these days, but one thing is for sure. Entrepreneurs must see things differently and be more fluid and willing to adapt. Extended international travel is challenging for a number of reasons, but if you approach things with the mindset and intention of remaining uncomfortable, you are forced to grow. 

Moving to SEA is a creative way to lower personal and business overhead, grow personally, and seriously enhance one’s lifestyle. My hats off to you Jill (@clark_jill).

Hackschooling Makes Me Happy ~ MAKE magazine

Hackschooling Makes Me Happy ~ MAKE magazine | General Interest | Scoop.it

by Goli Mohammadi

 

"When 13-year-old Tahoe native Logan LaPlante takes the stage for his TEDx talk at the University of Nevada, what follows are 11 minutes of eloquent, confident wisdom on his style of education, which he calls “hackschooling.” Here’s a sample:

 

'I’m not tied to one particular curriculum, and I’m not dedicated to one particular approach. I hack my education. I take advantages of opportunities in my community and through a network of my friends and family. I take advantage of opportunities to experience what I’m learning, and I’m not afraid to look for shortcuts or hacks to get a better, faster result. It’s like a remix or a mashup of learning. … And here’s the cool part: because it’s a mindset, not a system, hackschooling can be used by anyone, even traditional schools.'

 

"He touts the virtues of having the hacker mindset:


'A lot of people think of hackers as geeky computer nerds who live in their parents’ basement and spread computer viruses, but I don’t see it that way. Hackers are innovators. Hacker are people who challenge and change the systems to make them work differently, to make them work better. It’s just how they think, it’s a mindset.

I’m growing up in a world that needs more people with the hacker mindset, and not just for technology. Everything is up for being hacked, even skiing, even education. So whether it’s Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, or Shane McConkey, having the hacker mindset can change the world.'

 

"He emphasizes the importance of being happy:

 

'We don’t seem to make how to be healthy and happy a priority in our schools; it’s separate from schools, and for some kids it doesn’t exist at all, but what if we didn’t make it separate? What if we based our education on the practice of being happy and healthy because that’s what it is: a practice, and a simple practice at that. … Education is important, but why is being happy and healthy not considered education? I just don’t get it.''"

8 Things You Probably Didn’t Realize Siri Could Do | makeuseof

8 Things You Probably Didn’t Realize Siri Could Do | makeuseof | General Interest | Scoop.it

by Matt Smith

 

"Siri has become one of the iPhone’s defining features, but for many people, it’s not always the most useful. While some of this is due to the limitations of voice recognition, the oddity of using voice to command a device is also partly to blame. Users often assume Siri isn’t good for much more than finding directions or calling contacts.

 

"That couldn’t be further from the truth. There are aton of functions and features packed into Siri and, once you learn how to use them, you may be surprised how much you can accomplish without ever touching your phone"
