Learning Behavior-Driven Development with Ember CLI

Learning Behavior-Driven Development with Ember CLI | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

This tutorial walks through BDD‘ing a feature with Ember CLI, Mocha and Chai.
I’m writing it as I learn Emberjs, its way of doing things and its toolset, and try to adapt my usual workflow coming from Ruby.

The feature I’ll build here in baby-steps will be Posting a New Initiative. In Participate, a user can post proposals for civic initiatives, to which other users can then suggest changes, and then vote on.

In this first installment it’ll involve nothing but filling out a simple form with a title and a description, and submitting it. The next installment will add validation checking both fields are filled-in.

A Rubric to Grade Students iPad Projects ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"As you can see below, the rubric features 4 key criterion to base your grading on. These are content, writing process, layout, and graphics. Each of these criterion is assessed against a scale from 1 point (incomplete) to 4 points (exemplary). You might want to use this rubric to grade the projects your students do using iPad. It can also be a good model to help you design your own rubric that meets your own teaching needs."

Politicsweb - Blade Nzimande, language and the universities - FEATURES

Politicsweb - Blade Nzimande, language and the universities - FEATURES | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

According to a statement made by the Minister of Higher Education and Training, Blade Nzimande, during his budget debate earlier this week, "... we no longer have Afrikaans or Zulu or Tswana universities. All our universities are South African universities and must serve all the people of this country."

Nzimande is, of course, right. Our universities must serve the people of the country. The question is how they should do so in a manner that best serves our diverse population and that accords most closely with the rights and precepts in our Constitution.

Section 6(4) of the Constitution states that "all official languages must enjoy parity of esteem and must be treated equitably."  How is it equitable then that one language, English, should be imposed on all universities?

Section 6(2) requires "the state to take practical and positive measures to elevate the status and advance the use of" our indigenous languages.  But how is this to be achieved if they are not permitted to develop and flower as full-blown academic languages - and if our one indigenous language - Afrikaans - that has attained this status is neglected to wither on the vine? It was for this reason that the late Prof Jakes Gerwel recommended that our indigenous languages should be developed and championed by various universities.

Section 29(2) states clearly that "everyone has the right to receive education in the official language or languages of their choice in public educational institutions where that education is reasonably practicable. In order to ensure the effective access to, and implementation of, this right the state must consider all reasonable alternatives, including single medium institutions, taking into account (a) equity; (b) practicability and (c) the need to redress the results of past racially discriminatory laws and practices."

Nobody is advocating single medium universities or universities that are not open to students of all races. However, it is clearly practicable and equitable that in an Afrikaans majority province such as the Western Cape, at least one the four universities should use Afrikaans as its principal language of tuition - on an entirely non-racial and non-discriminatory basis.

The Constitution also recognises the right of all South Africans "to use the language and to participate in the culture of their choice".  But how can this right be assured if the state - in effect - fails to support or recognise the public institutions that are essential for the promotion, preservation and development of all our languages and cultures?

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."
