 A common mistake made during sales presentations is to lead off with facts. However,  facts alone will never generate the emotional connection that is needed in order to engage , influence and motivate an audience.  Read here about three steps that need to be taken in order to lead with a meaningful story.

One of my most poignant "slaps on the face" in the classroom came while conferring with a student over their research paper.

Blue Origin to live broadcast rocket launch for the first time | Nick Lavars | GizMag.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

You can't accuse Blue Origin of being entirely secretive, considering the company has publicly celebrated after each of its three rocket landings thus far. But when Jeff Bezos' New Shepard vehicle is fired into the air on Sunday he'll be giving space fans a real-time look at the action, with the company set to live stream one of its launches for the first time.

The astronomically curious have been a bit spoilt by the slick public relations machine at rival SpaceX. Elon Musk's company has allowed fans to share the excitement of its forays into space through a series live streams covering both its successes and failures, all presented by informative SpaceX engineers and staffers.

Before European Christians Forced Gender Roles, Native Americans Acknowledged 5 Genders | Pearson McKinney | BiPartisanReport.com

Before European Christians Forced Gender Roles, Native Americans Acknowledged 5 Genders | Pearson McKinney | BiPartisanReport.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

It wasn’t until Europeans took over North America that natives adopted the ideas of gender roles. For Native Americans, there was no set of rules that men and women had to abide by in order to be considered a “normal” member of their tribe.

In fact, people who had both female and male characteristics were viewed as gifted by nature, and therefore, able to see both sides of everything. According to Indian Country Today, all native communities acknowledged the following gender roles: “Female, male, Two Spirit female, Two Spirit male and Transgendered.”

The “Two Spirit” culture of Native Americans was one of the first things that Europeans worked to destroy and cover up. According to Brits like George Catlin, the Two Spirit tradition had to be eradicated before it could go into history books. Catlin said the tradition:

“..Must be extinguished before it can be more fully recorded.”

However, it wasn’t only white Europeans that tried to hide any trace of native gender bending. According to Indian Country Today, “Spanish Catholic monks destroyed most of the Aztec codices to eradicate traditional Native beliefs and history, including those that told of the Two Spirit tradition.” Throughout these efforts by Catholics and Christians, Native Americans were forced to dress and act according to newly designated gender roles.

Using technology is really not a new concept, and although staying current with the latest and greatest is good, simple technology can be just as effective in supplementing the lesson and adding a depth that can't be reached any other way. 

John Zuluaga's curator insight, April 23, 1:52 PM
A pretty deep thought! 

Everything we do in class must have a purpose so it will be more effective. Most of the times, the use of technology is not wise; however, the technology can become more innovative if we, as teachers, think about the use of apps, websites with a very specific purpose.

More Than Just Male and Female: The Six Genders in Classical Judaism | Charlotte Fonrobert | SojournGSD.org

More Than Just Male and Female: The Six Genders in Classical Judaism | Charlotte Fonrobert | SojournGSD.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

It's very easy to assume that Judaism is an exclusively gender-binary religion. Almost all of the common traditional laws are based on the assumed differences between males and females. We see it in assumed gender roles, in liturgy, in proscribed family responsibilities, and in both our secular and religious laws.

If, however, we look just a bit deeper into our sacred texts, we see that a simple male/female binary is not only cumbersome, it's wholly inaccurate. This description from Trans Torah/Rabbi Elliot Kukla starts the conversation that we will continue throughout the summer;
