Book explaining gender diversity to primary school children sparks furore | Sally Weale | The Guardian

Book explaining gender diversity to primary school children sparks furore | Sally Weale | The Guardian | immersive media | Scoop.it

“My name is Kit and I’m 12 years old. I live in a house with my mum and dad, and our dog, Pickle. When I was born, the doctors told my mum and dad that they had a baby girl, and so for the first few years of my life that’s how my parents raised me. This is called being assigned female at birth. I wasn’t ever very happy that way.”

These are the opening lines of a controversial new book called Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity? which is being introduced into some primary schools as a resource for children, parents and teachers, and claims to be the first book to explain “medical transitioning” to children as young as seven.

It is not published until later this month, but the slim volume has already prompted fury from the Mail on Sunday, former Tory party chairman Lord Tebbit and one-time Conservative Home Office minister Ann Widdecombe, as well as Mail columnist Sarah Vine who complained that the target audience was children not even ready to choose their A-levels, “let alone challenge their own biology”.

How to Be an Artist, According to Paul Klee |  Sarah Gottesman | Artsy.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

One of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, Paul Klee was also a prolific teacher, serving as a faculty member of the Bauhaus school between 1921 and 1931. Promoting a theoretical approach to artmaking, the painter taught a variety of courses across disciplines, from bookbinding to basic design, and left behind over 3,900 pages in lecture notes.


These documents, partly compiled in Klee’s Pedagogical Sketchbook (1925), reveal the artist’s innovative and unusual lesson plans, which often provided students with a step-by-step approach to artistic expression. We’ve pulled some of his key lessons about art and design.


Let’s start with the basics.

Deep in the Swamps, Archaeologists Are Finding How Fugitive Slaves Kept Their Freedom | Richard Grant | Smithsonian Magazine

Deep in the Swamps, Archaeologists Are Finding How Fugitive Slaves Kept Their Freedom | Richard Grant | Smithsonian Magazine | immersive media | Scoop.it

The worse it gets, as I wade and stumble through the Great Dismal Swamp, the better I understand its history as a place of refuge. Each ripping thorn and sucking mudhole makes it clearer. It was the dense, tangled hostility of the swamp and its enormous size that enabled hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of escaped slaves to live here in freedom.


We don’t know much about them, but thanks to the archaeologist hacking through the mire ahead of me, we know they were out here, subsisting in hidden communities, and using almost nothing from the outside world until the 19th century. The Dismal Swamp covered great tracts of southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina, and its vegetation was far too thick for horses or canoes. In the early 1600s, Native Americans fleeing the colonial frontier took refuge here, and they were soon joined by fugitive slaves, and probably some whites escaping indentured servitude or hiding from the law. From about 1680 to the Civil War, it appears that the swamp communities were dominated by Africans and African-Americans.

Big Betelgeuse may have swallowed a companion star on its way to going supernova | Eric Mack | NewAtlas.com

Big Betelgeuse may have swallowed a companion star on its way to going supernova | Eric Mack | NewAtlas.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Betelgeuse is something of a "superstar" in the night sky, but new research suggests that the red supergiant that marks the shoulder of the constellation Orion might have an interesting past.

The star is closely watched not only because it's so bright, but because it's also quite ancient and ready to go supernova any day now (or thousands of years from now, which still qualifies as "soon" on the cosmic timescale). As it has approached the end of its lifespan, Betelgeuse has swollen up to many times its original size.

Astronomer J. Craig Wheeler of The University of Texas at Austin says new evidence leads him to believe that the luminous red star may have once had a companion star that it eventually swallowed as it grew.

Storytelling and UX: Separated at Birth

Storytelling and UX: Separated at Birth | immersive media | Scoop.it
Learning storytelling in a group from an experienced storyteller provides an experiential sense of story that can’t be captured with a set of procedural instructions.  There are great courses out there.  We can learn a lot online…but if we want to understand something as deeply human as storytelling its ideal for humans to interact with other humans.

Here’s why: A story blends emotional, visual, kinesthetic and rational reasoning routines without separating them.  Personal stories illuminate insights that are specific to a situation’s people, complexity, texture and relationships. A vibrant true story delivers a hologram of culture, nature, nurture, space and time from an embodied human point of view: WAY more information than a story formated via a hunt and peck search for hero, quest, obstacle, helper and journey.

Why are there Underground Jesuit Caves in Europe filled with Egyptian and Islamic Art? | MesseyNessyChic.com

Why are there Underground Jesuit Caves in Europe filled with Egyptian and Islamic Art? | MesseyNessyChic.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

I‘ve just spent the last few hours trying to figure out why there’s a network of underground Jesuit caves filled with Egyptian, Islamic, Buddhist, Christian, pagan and secular art– and I’m stumped. This is a bit of a first for me and I’m reaching out to you to help explain the mystery…

Okay so here’s what I learned so far. Just outside the city of Maastricht, close to the Belgian border, you can find one of the most exquisitely carved limestone quarries in the world known as Jezuïetenberg (Jesuit Cave).

The underground passageways that descend to a depth of 45 metres, were dug between 1704 and 1880 when marlstone was widely used as a building material– but the astonishing art and sculpture didn’t appear until around 1860 when Jesuits settled in the area and first set foot in the quarry…

Over the next 100 years, Jesuit students completed over 400 works of art, including reliefs, frescoes and charcoal drawings. There are winged bulls, a replica of the Alhambra, a Hindu temple, depictions of Christ next to Buddha, the head of Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II and … Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Most of it in fact, is pretty confusing and has nothing to do with Christianity.

History tells that the students had the day off every Wednesday and would venture into the mountainous forest looking for dinosaur fossils in the abandoned quarries–(the area is also home to the Maastricht Formation, a geological formation in the Netherlands and Belgium that dates back to the Late Cretaceous period, round 66 million years ago). When they realised they could write and draw on the walls, well, they basically didn’t stop...

NY: Buffalo School Board Passes Resolution Telling Carl Paladino To Resign Within 24 Hours | Amanda Terkel | HuffPost.com

NY: Buffalo School Board Passes Resolution Telling Carl Paladino To Resign Within 24 Hours | Amanda Terkel | HuffPost.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

The Buffalo, NY Board of Education voted 6-2 Thursday to issue a stunning ultimatum to Carl Paladino, one of their own members who has been under national fire for his racially charged comments about the Obamas: Resign within 24 hours, or the board will petition the state to remove you.

Paladino was Donald Trump’s New York campaign co-chair and currently sits on the nine-member Buffalo school board. In recent days, he’s faced intense criticism for his answers to a local newspaper’s questionnaire about what he would like to see happen in 2017. Paladino said he’d like President Barack Obama to die from mad cow disease and called first lady Michelle Obama a man who should go live with gorillas.

Buffalonians sick of Paladino making their city look bad mobilized Thursday, first for a protest downtown in Niagara Square and later at a special school board meeting at city hall.

The board met to consider a fiery resolution that said if Paladino did not resign within 24 hours, they would petition New York Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia to remove him. Elia has so far declined to weigh in on the controversy.
