This article is about a new way of teaching to where the student can actually grasp more than what they are learning from a usual lesson. This would help the students who are falling back bump ahead to see a better future to succeed. Which I think this article is a great idea and a great plan for students who really need the extra boost!

Mapping the Spread of Drought Across the U.S.

Mapping the Spread of Drought Across the U.S. | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it
Droughts appear to be intensifying over much of the West and Southwest as a result of global warming. Over the past decade, droughts in some regions have rivaled the epic dry spells of the 1930s and 1950s. About 37 percent of the contiguous United States was in at least a moderate drought as of March 31, 2015.
Things have been particularly bad in California, which has just imposed its first mandatory water restrictions, the latest in a series of drastic measures to reduce water consumption. California farmers, without water from reservoirs in the Central Valley, are left to choose which of their crops to water. Parts of Texas, Oklahoma and surrounding states are also suffering from drought conditions.
The relationship between the climate and droughts is complicated. Parts of the country are becoming wetter: East of the Mississippi, rainfall has been rising. But global warming also appears to be causing moisture to evaporate faster in places that were already dry. Researchers believe drought conditions in these places are likely to intensify in coming years.
There has been little relief for some places since the summer of 2012. At the recent peak last May, about 40 percent of the country was abnormally dry or in at least a moderate drought.
The patterns above come from the Drought Monitor, which has data going back to 2000. A different measure, the Palmer Index, goes back more than a hundred years. It does lag the Drought Monitor data by more than a month, so it’s less useful for measuring what’s happening right now. But the Palmer Index shows how unusual the current period is. A 10-year average of Palmer values has been increasing for most of the last 20 years, which is to say that the country is in the midst of one of its most sustained periods of increasing drought on record.

LEONARDO WILD's curator insight, April 5, 2015 9:03 AM

Climate change is all about the "Pendulum Effect," where the extremes is what matters, not so much the median or average. The average may fluctuate some, but the real problem comes when the weather goes haywire. Too much water can be as destructive as too little water, and this doesn't only happen in time but in space as well, where regions get too much of one and too little of the other. We'll see strips of drought and strips of wetness, strips of cold and strips of heat, like bands across regions and across the planet.

Trinity Allman's comment, April 6, 10:01 PM
This is about how different multi or bilingual people's brains work. When you were bilingual your brain has the advantage of working or exercising all the time whereas if you're monolingual it's not. The left side of the brain when you're an adult mostly tries to process the the new language when you learn it later in life where as when you're a child the brain is more stretchy and can learn languages easier. I like this article because I find it interesting how every day bilingual people at school, their brains are working double mine.
Nautia Roseboro's comment, May 11, 6:57 PM
this article says alot about how brains work in two different manners if you speak two languages or one if you learn to speak a language and was not born innately knowing that specific language does not mean you can't learn it you just have to be taught like in a Spanish class its a process but in the long run it will do good for job applications and even scholars and etc. your brain becomes more active then a one language speaker does not mean there any less smarter it just means that the brain is more active then the other and may be easier to accomplish something better like traveling and asking someone for help . i liked this article because it was interesting to know how a brain can manage to know/remember two or more languages
Kyra Gamble's comment, May 18, 10:55 AM
This article is about how brains can work in two different ways if you speak two languages or learn to speak two. Your brain becomes more active than a language speaker does , but not meaning that they are smarter or less educated, it just means that the brain is more active and the other may be easier to accomplish something better like traveling or talking to someone that speaks that language you have learned or know .

Summary this article is about how a teacher lets students be creative and come up with there own projects and ideas instead of her just giving work I think students full potential is shown better like this it shows what student brains do and shows the teacher how advanced some of them just may be I think we should try this and see how it works
Trinity Allman's comment, April 6, 9:45 PM
This article talks about how project based learning is actually more beneficial because the students are actually engaged in the activities instead of just reading a summary of the subject. They learn by demonstration and visual pictures rather than some words on a page. This type of learning has been proved to be more beneficial and teachers are starting to get more involved in your project-based learning as some schools are starting to encourage it. I like this article because we do some project-based learning in our class and it's interesting seeing how other schools or possibly trying to do the same.

Marie Wilcox is the last fluent speaker of the Wakchumni speaker. She is working hard to make a Wakchumni dictionary. She learned how to use a computer to make this possible. She started to remember the language she used to know. She tried to learn the language and it made her want to make a dictionary.

I agree that students need to work with others and the teacher needs to make sure all the students understand what is going on. With the new generation it is harder to teach because we don't have experience teaching them with all this new technology. Teachers should incorporate technology into lessons.
Trinity Allman's comment, April 10, 9:38 PM
In this article it talks about how the teacher needs to be actively involved with the students and that he/she needs to work with the students and engage them in the activity for students learning purposes. The result is supposed to be to provide a better education and learning experience for students. Also the additional technology involvement would also be beneficial. I enjoyed this article because it's good to know what our teachers need to be doing more of the help us learn.

Future of Work: What Skills Will Help Us Keep Pace?  empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership. | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it

These are the changemaking skills of empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership. As STEM skills help us learn the latest technologies—changemaking skills can help us flourish in a society transitioning from hierarchical to flat, fast moving networks.

 

 

Each of the changemaking skills is key, but I’ll focus on the most important one—empathy.

 

In our increasingly interconnected world, one’s actions have a bigger impact on others and can create tremendous positive or negative outcomes in record time. From the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, ISIS, the Ice Bucket Challenge, and the increasing rate at which new companies and industries are forming and collapsing—change that traditionally took decades is now happening in months.


Hierarchical systems of authority are increasingly struggling to keep up. The systemic solution is to help everyone develop the new skills needed to get along with others in a flat, fast-moving world.

 

We have already seen the power of empathetic and decisive people successfully leading and navigating in this new world.
