Why Multilingual People Have Healthier, More Engaged Brains

Why Multilingual People Have Healthier, More Engaged Brains | Infographics | Scoop.it

Prior to the 1960s, scientists thought children who spoke more than one language had a handicap for learning because they had to spend too much time distinguishing between languages. With more modern brain imaging technology, researchers can now see how multilingualism actually strengthens the brain. People who speak more than one language have a higher density of gray matter that contains most of the brains neurons and synapses.

Report: Wireless spectrum is indispensable to economy | Jeff Hawn | RCRWireless.com | Infographics | Scoop.it

In a new report, the lobbying group Cellular Telephone Industries Association found that licensed broadband spectrum is a foundational asset that supports the multifaceted economic machinations.Titled Mobile Broadband Spectrum a Vital Resource For the American Economy, the report found, “Licensed spectrum is a vital resource for the U.S. economy and consumers across the country. The development of the modern mobile wireless industry, from the widespread adoption of mobile devices to the continual evolution of wireless broadband networks transformed how America lives, plays and works. The licensed spectrum used by the wireless industry boosted our nation’s economy, created jobs and produced the world’s best telecom and technology sector.”The study – conducted by the Cambridge, Mass.-based Brattle Group at the behest of CTIA, the wireless industry’s largest and most vocal trade association – brings into perspective how integrated the economy has become with wireless technology.The report, which uses data from up to 2013, stipulates that for every person employed in the wireless industry, 6.5 other jobs are created across many other sectors such as technology, media and manufacturing.The wireless industry employed 180,000 people directly in 2013 and was responsible for 1.3 million U.S. jobs overall, according to the report.The report’s main focus is in the value and division of spectrum as a resource.

How to end a fight over who should regulate Internet providers | Brian Fung | WashPost.com

How to end a fight over who should regulate Internet providers | Brian Fung | WashPost.com | Infographics | Scoop.it
Federal officials are discussing an end to the Federal Trade Commission's legal prohibition on regulating Internet providers and telecom companies — a move that could give Washington wider authority to police perceived abuses and consumer harms in an increasingly important part of the economy.If the idea moves forward, it could mean that both the FTC and the Federal Communications Commission would have the power to go after misbehaving carriers. It could also mean greater cooperation between the two agencies as the lines between telecommunications, business and entertainment continue to merge on broadband networks.Here's why the issue is so important: When the FCC last month decided to start regulating Internet providers more closely under net neutrality, it turned them into what the agency calls "common carriers." But the FTC's congressional charter carries an exemption for common carriers — a provision that effectively prevents the FTC from taking enforcement actions against such firms and reserves that right for the FCC.Senior FTC officials have complained that the FCC's new rules would put Internet providers out of their reach — and rob the FTC of the ability to protect consumers."If an entity is a common carrier providing common carrier services, we can't bring actions against them," said Republican FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen in September.The common carrier exemption has become a source of friction between the two agencies. And whether consumers are better off when Internet providers are policed by clear rules laid out by the FCC, or overseen on a case-by-case basis by the FTC, has been a core part of the wider net neutrality debate.Top officials from the FTC and FCC on Wednesday endorsed ending the "common carrier exemption" in the FTC's congressional charter. Asked by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) in a House Judiciary Committee hearing whether they would support congressional efforts to end the ban, FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny and FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler — both Democrats — said they would.Click headline to read more and access hot links--

Helping Students Fail: A Framework

Helping Students Fail: A Framework | Infographics | Scoop.it
"As teachers, allowing students to see failure as a negative experience is one of the worst things we can do.Granted, this isn’t unique to education. The idea of risk-taking, failing, looking, leaping, try-try-again is ingrained in our cultural DNA. But in education, we certainly have made it dramatic. In fact, we don’t even need the whole word anymore. Failure erodes to fail, which itself erodes to simply F..."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 5, 2015 5:46 PM

In education we many students are told they have "failed" yet as teachers we know that making mistakes is the norm. Engineers look at failures as a way to learn. What can we do in education?

This post explores:

* What does it mean to "fail"?

* The role of failure in learning

* Helping Students Fail: A Framework which has four sections, each of which provides "the idea" and guiding questions.

Where can you start as a teacher?

* By clarifying the meaning

* By providing context

* By designing transparent processes

* By illuminating progress

Students need to learn that a "failure" is not the end of the road, but a stop on a journey. As teachers this post provides a number of suggestions that may help us better meet the needs of our students and help them see failure in a different light.

1 Billion Total Websites - Internet Live Stats

1 Billion Total Websites - Internet Live Stats | Infographics | Scoop.it
“How many websites are there on the Web? Number of websites by year and growth from 1991 to 2015. Historical count and popular websites starting from the first website until today. Charts, real time counter, and interesting info.”After reaching 1 billion websites in September of 2014, a milestone confirmed by NetCraft in its October 2014 Web Server Survey and that Internet Live Stats was the first to announce - as attested by this tweet from the inventor of the World Wide Web himself, Tim Berners-Lee - the number of websites in the world has subsequently declined, reverting back to a level below 1 billion. This is due to the monthly fluctuations in the count of inactive websites. We do expect, however, to exceed 1 billion websites again sometime in 2015 and to stabilize the count above this historic milestone in 2016.Curious facts - The first-ever website (info.cern.ch) was published on August 6, 1991 by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee while at CERN, in Switzerland. [2] On April 30, 1993 CERN made World Wide Web ("W3" for short) technology available on a royalty-free basis to the public domain, allowing the Web to flourish.[3] - The World Wide Web was invented in March of 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee (see the original proposal). He also introduced the first web server, the first browser and editor (the “WorldWideWeb.app”), the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and, in October 1990, the first version of the "HyperText Markup Language" (HTML).[4] - In 2013 alone, the web has grown by more than one third: from about 630 million websites at the start of the year to over 850 million by December 2013 (of which 180 million were active). - Over 50% of websites today are hosted on either Apache or nginx (54% of the total as of February 2015, according to NetCraft), both open source web servers.[5] After getting very close and even briefly taking the lead in July of 2014 in terms of server market share, Microsoft has recently got back behind Apache. As of February of 2015, 39% of server are hosted on Apache and 29% on Microsoft. However, if the overall trend continues in the future, in a few years from now Microsoft could become the leading web server developer for the first time in history.

My insight...the parents were involved in this after-school training and what they found was an active involvement within their own brain as the presenter lead them through a close reading of the Gettysburg Address. Well and good...commendable. I have been suggesting that schools have back to school math nights but I hadn't even though of doing a close reading study. However, in the article, close reading is described this way:


"One of the key components of close reading is to focus on informational, or non-fiction text. In addition to studying novels or storybooks, children would devote an equal amount of time to reading a piece of factual writing multiple times, with a different goal in mind for each pass."


That is neither an accurate definition or understanding of close reading nor is it useful. Close reading was first devised as a way to understand literature not prose. Yes, it can be applied to high quality prose but not exclusively. AND close reading is not reading multiple times with a "different goal in mind for each pass." Indeed, many teachers have been told that is the case and are indeed approaching close reading that way...but that is no more than strategy instruction--the kind of instruction that lead many readers nowhere and instead resulted in mindless worksheet activities.

Wish more parents, those whining about how their kids can't use the computer for testing, could see what kids really think. Now...don't get me wrong...I know some kids struggle with the computer and those children should have alternatives. On the other hand, too many parents don't know their children's capabilities and attempting to keep them from assessment because they don't like the vehicle is just plain wrong.
