These architectural designs in Israel show religious meanings, what other factors inspire architectural creativity? Who uses these different styles of creativity?

Lily and Cami's curator insight, November 5, 2014 5:18 PM

Israel Religion: I scooped this because the picture really stood out to me because the golden dome stands over the rock on Temple Mount. you also can see great images of Indonesia, Spain, Egypt, Syria, and Israel/Palestine. Not only are these sacred buildings but they are also big religious and tourist attractions.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, December 15, 2014 1:20 PM

Although all part of the same religion these buildings are influenced heavily by their location. I think this is important to note because it challenges our assumptions on Islam. When I think of a mosque a certain image pops into my head, these images shows how the same religion can still have local influences.

TFTP (Technology For The People)

Ioana Literat, a doctoral student at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication, describes her experience training young women in India to teach new media literacies in their own communities. Literat writes about the power of these skills for young Muslim women who have little opportunities for education as teachers or students. But that hasn’t stopped them. “As a woman, I have more responsibilities to do in society,” said one 8th-grade student from the Railway Girls High School in Hyderabad, India. “I will help girls get education and explain to them the importance of education for their future.” Literat worked in partnership with two organizations, The Modern Story and Technology for the People. She describes her experience training young female teachers in new media literacies and then placing them in classrooms in all-girls public schools. Watch the tech savvy girls at work in this video.

Jihad

Jihad | Muslim Educators in Today's World | Scoop.it

Jihad is the most misunderstood Islamic term. Jihad does NOT mean Holy War or any war fought by any Muslim. Jihad comes from the Arabic word 'Jahada' which means 'to strive, to struggle'. Islamic Jihad includes striving against one's own evil inclinations, striving to make the society better & even striving in the battlefield in self defense or against tyranny & oppression.

Students Invent Water Purification Disc That Could Revolutionize Clean Water Access - Video 3min

Students Invent Water Purification Disc That Could Revolutionize Clean Water Access - Video 3min | Muslim Educators in Today's World | Scoop.it

Students at the University of Virginia have developed a new way of purifying water that they say could bring improved water quality for millions in the developing world.  It’s called a Madi Drop. Field testing begins this month in South Africa.

 

What’s created is called a MadiDrop – a ceramic disc infused with silver.

 

When dropped in water, silver ions, which are atoms that have an electrical charge,, are released to purify the water.  And, testing here at the University of Virginia shows clean, safe water.

 

“It’s not just about making a really great technology that effectively removes or kills bacteria and pathogens.  It’s about making a low cost, simple to use one, tailored to people in developing countries who don’t have many resources,” said Beeta Ehdaie, a doctoral candidate at UVA.

This is great news. Something like this can be very helpful throughout the world. Especially countries with the lack of healthy water. However, with the technology of this, I am sure big corporations would try to get a hold of it. The big corporations would try to get a big profit off of this and I'm sure not many people would appreciate this.

Creating Learning Environments

Creating Learning Environments | Muslim Educators in Today's World | Scoop.it

"A while ago I witnessed students taking computer-based classes passing their tests with ease until I figured out what they were doing. They had two screens open -- one was the computer-based course and the other screen was Google, Wikipedia, or Ask Jeeves. When they ran across a question they did not know, they just looked up the answer on one of those other sites. This incident made me think a bit. What do teachers have to offer students when they can learn anything they want from searching it on the Internet? Why should a student sit in class (or classes) all day long when they can find all the information they need instantly? With so much knowledge everywhere, aren't we trying to sell a product they already have? Even if the technology were ubiquitous in school and out of school, the answer to that question is simple: Instant knowledge has changed how everyone learns because the questions we need to have answered are just a few clicks away." | by Ben Johnson

Islamic teaching and prayer centre could replace former Aylesbury pub

Islamic teaching and prayer centre could replace former Aylesbury pub | Muslim Educators in Today's World | Scoop.it
An Islamic education and prayer centre could replace an abandoned Aylesbury pub, if planning permission is granted.

An Islamic education and prayer centre could replace an abandoned Aylesbury pub, if planning permission is granted.

The Steeplechase has stood empty for a number of years, but now the Aylesbury Islamic Education Trust wants to convert it to teach Islamic studies and hold prayer sessions.

Some residents have expressed fears over the plans, including the potential impact on parking.

Isabel Scott said: “I hope it doesn’t go through. I would rather see a block of flats there.”

The trust currently has a centre in Tring Road, but needs a bigger space to meet demand.

If approved, classrooms, a games room and a caretaker’s flat would be installed in the former Taylor Road pub. Some 150 children at any one time would attend two sessions between 4pm and 7pm on weekdays. There would also be five daily 15-minute prayer sessions and longer Friday prayers.

A similar centre which replaced the former Skinny Dog pub in Churchill Avenue, Southcourt, sparked protests when plans were unveiled in 2008.

But residents The Bucks Herald spoke to this week said they have not had problems with it since it opened.

However, Mrs P Beales wrote of the new proposals in an online submission: “We do not want or need another prayer centre.

“If the site cannot be used for the benefit of the whole community, ie another public house, it should be given over for housing.”

Are the Rich Jerks? How Money Makes People Act Less Humane

Are the Rich Jerks? How Money Makes People Act Less Humane | Muslim Educators in Today's World | Scoop.it

"New research suggests that more money makes people act less human. Or at least less humane. Earlier this year, Paul Piff, a psychological researcher published a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that made him semi-famous. Titled 'Higher Social Class Predicts Increased Unethical Behavior,' it showed through quizzes, online games, questionnaires, in-lab manipulations, and field studies that living high on the socioeconomic ladder can, colloquially speaking, dehumanize people. It can make them less ethical, more selfish, more insular, and less compassionate than other people. It can make them more likely, as Piff demonstrated in one of his experiments, to take candy from a bowl of sweets designated for children. 'While having money doesn’t necessarily make anybody anything,' Piff says, 'the rich are way more likely to prioritize their own self-interests above the interests of other people. It makes them more likely to exhibit characteristics that we would stereotypically associate with, say, assholes.'" | by Lisa Miller
