I found this article to be very interesting in the fact that our brains become more "active" if she learn another language than if we didn't. This article showed a family that just moved from a place that spoke a different language and the 2 year old learned 2 languages and the teen brother had to learn English to be able to understand it and the parents had no English in them what so ever they still spoke their native tongue. I really enjoyed this article because in class you talked about how learning another language can help and now that I have read this article I know how.
Bridgette Cabrales's comment, February 23, 7:26 PM
This article is about how our brains work different if you speak two languages your brain works differently than the people who only speak one language.I speak two languages, English and Spanish.When you speak more than one language it doesn't mean that your smarter it means that your brain is healthier than the people that only speak one language.I really enjoyed this article.This article explains that speaking two languages is good for you and wouldn't harm you to learn it.I didn't think that speaking two languages was healthier for your brain.

This article is about a person who likes for their students to come up with their own project ideas, instead of the teacher just giving them a summary about what the project should be like. The person enjoys how creative students can be. The person makes sure that they have the things that they are also looking for in the project too. Especially the driving question and they make sure the students answer it. Reaction: I actually like the way this person Keyes their students be creative with their projects
Cody Maitlen 's comment, March 16, 8:20 PM
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

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.

Future of Work: What Skills Will Help Us Keep Pace? empathy, innovation, new teamwork and new leadership.

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.

i would recommend this to not only teachers but this goes to some parents out there as well. I totally agree with these very helpful 12 things to do in order to cut humiliation out the way, as the surtitle said " humiliation is never ok" totally agreeable,!! no child/student/or any kid(s) should feel that humiliation is just something that can be ignored just by getting used to it. this is just like bullying, its never ok, this article has a very strong message.

The problem I have with this story is that it is only trying to project it towards teachers and not also parents maybe even friends or even people across the world. It is a great article with factual facts I just thunk it could have came out a whole lot better.

I wonder what the author was thinking about when they wrote and thought about this one?

We tend to forget that people and populations are constantly changing.  The world as it looks right now is not how it has always been and it will look different in the future.

Gloria wwww's comment, September 15, 2015 8:01 PM
Amazing how this is an educated guess on what could be possible in the future and what is the possibilities that Muslim will take over Christians! But if this were to happen a lot could go on! Hopefully this won't come down to places like Asia where if you're religious you could get killed for it. Although many people would sacrifice their selfs. But because of this if this were to happen this could mean so many different things as in Christians could start so many different things of how their country is in the "Wrong hands" but to Muslims this could be a great thing along with Islam.! Very interesting! Another educated guess this could start a big riot and cause a situation and things could get bad. Scooping this!!
Rebecca Stover's comment, September 29, 2015 9:41 PM
This article is kind of interesting because how will the people who made these statistics know that a giant downfall or up rising of one religion or is this just a wait and see what happens. I thought this was displaying for me actually but thats only because I am a Christian but with that put aside most people dont even really know what religion they are and the "surveys" or whatever these people take to find their statistics could be at a wrong percentage and be giving false statements but I guess this information is kind of just a waiting matter to see what happens. This article really made me think and try to look at things from a different point of view which is cool and neat.

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.
