Resource Centres - Action centres full of loud learning with is paces for quietness and others for noisy endeavours.

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, April 29, 2014 2:09 AM

"Today’s school librarians employ a variety of tools beyond books to educate kids. They use technology to engage students living in a tech-heavy world. They collaborate with teachers to support curriculum. They create “maker” spaces where students can work on arts and crafts projects. They maintain a flexible schedule, so kids can drop in when they wish. And they create a welcoming atmosphere that kids crave."

 
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 2014 10:43 AM

School libraries and the relationships, human and otherwise, are important in schools.

What Does GMO Labeling Mean For You?

What Does GMO Labeling Mean For You? | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Having I-522 on the ballot proves that Americans want to know what's in their food and has sparked a debate between both sides.
Sharrock's insight:

This is something a science or social studies teacher in secondary schools might find useful as a common core non-fiction resource. It is informative about genetically-modified food, legal information, and science with legal connections are valuable. Students might discuss pros and cons of GMOs and may possibly discuss Monsanto (http://www.monsanto.com/Pages/default.aspx) and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsanto in terms of genetically modified food controversies. This is a case also of law and policiy-making trying to keep up with technological innovations.
