Learning and teaching about the Hijab and its culture.

Shelby Porter's comment, September 19, 2013 2:39 PM
The hijab has become a very controversial issue on the global scale. For example, Saudi Arabian and Iran women are required to wear it where as other countries (most recently France) have banned the wearing of such religious garments. Under the U.S. constitutions first amendment of freedom of speech and freedom of religion allows the women to wear them. For many women it is a choice of modesty or a way to show her devotion to her religion. Many people today still are uneducated about the topic and see it as a way these women are being oppressed. Ultimately it is that woman's choice, but it is a shame that in some places it may come with a price.

Abby Fellows - Smith's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:05 AM

I loved this article. It broke down ten ways in which iPads are productive in aiding children how to learn. The aid of pictures with headlines and quotes made it enjoyable to read. Instead of one long story it was broken down nicely so that it is easy to retain the information that you read. I particularly enjoyed the insight into the "the risk - taker" aspect of using the iPad. It is great to know that technology is aiding in the education of future generations

Sarah-Jane Davies's insight:

The introduction of iPads into the classroom is a very controversial topic. Many people believe that it is not suitable for school children. For example, people say that children lose their ability to write since they are no longer using pens or paper. However, this article fives many examples of why it is actually a positive thing. The article is fun to read since it is written in a concise list and contains interesting cartoon pictures at each point. Each point is also extended by reasons and examples of why the specific point is positive.  The viewpoint is legitimate since it is coming from a teacher. The teacher has a good perspective since he deals with children every day.

"We’ve talked about habits of successful teachers. We’ve discussed the Habits of Mind. We’ve even discussed new currencies for 21st century learners.

 

We haven’t, though, talked much about the kinds of habits that create successful students. Stephen Covey, of business organization and leadership fame, has turned his “habits” shtick into an empire–one that entered the classroom years ago with his 7 habits of success students, seen below."
