VIDEO 83mins Deliver us from Evil? Politics of Drug Control and Human Rights

VIDEO 83mins Deliver us from Evil? Politics of Drug Control and Human Rights | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

This lecture focused on the political players of the war on drugs and how drug policy fails to address the complexity of the drug market, including the social and political . Instead, the drug war functions as a 'one-size-fit-all solution'.

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Excellent lessons. Must be used.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, December 15, 8:47 PM

This is a pet peeve of mine--schools are still not teaching kids how to do this properly, with disastrous results. Whether you homeschool or send a child to school, these lessons will help them use the Internet more effectively (and responsibly) for research projects.
