Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt?

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

As the climate shifts, rivers will both flood and dry up more often, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Shortages are especially likely in parts of the world already strapped for water, so political scientists expect feuds will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, researchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a comprehensive database of international exchanges—-both conflicts and alliances—over shared water resources. They found that countries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach peaceful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geographer who leads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even Arabs and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis, are able to resolve their differences and find a solution.”

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Can we teach students in elementary and middle school the concepts of financial literacy? With the right resources the answer would be yes.

ASIDE has provided a range of excellent resources in this post. You will find an excellent infographic that covers the Story of Money, beginning with bartering animal hides and teeth as well as shells up to a gold coin minted in Australia in 2011 that weighs (take a breath) 2,231 pounds. (There is a great math problem to be solved.)

A number of videos are also provided. One looks at student debt and one is a TED-Ed video.

There are also additional resources provided.

Financial literacy is an important concept for students to learn, and I would think the earlier they understand the concepts the better off they will be. To learn more click through to the post.

STEN vs STEAM - Why Art has Entered STEM (infographic) | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are the center of attention in most US public schools today. The focus on STEM fields was initiated to increase global competitiveness and the project does have its merits. However, it has left the arts languishing far off in the periphery. This is quite unfortunate, as art education is known to improve academic performance."

Have you noticed that STEM has transformed to STEAM? The A stands for art and this infographic looks at how the introduction of art to STEM can make  a difference in the academic performance of students. The infographic shares statistics on the perception of STEM and facts about both STEM and the Arts. It looks at how each impact the brain and also statistics about the number of schools with arts (US only) as well looking at US STEM rankings and global arts education.

There is a reason that STEM is shifting to STEAM and this infographic provides an overview of some of the reasons this is taking place.

Teaching teachers and students about copyright and asking them to respect intellectual property is not an easy task, but it is critical that we teach students that plagiarism is not acceptable (and that we follow the same rules). This infographic provides one way for teachers and students to determine what they may do and also provides information on how you may take material you have created and either place it under Creative Commons or choose to copyright the work.
