Interesting for EAP

Mark Simpson's curator insight, October 7, 2014 1:08 PM

Checking the sense of a field-report or essay prior to submission could provide insight that leads to improvements which in turn might improve grades.

 

There is some concern however about the potential loss of intellectual property created by authors who then submit draft work for analysis - there appears to be loss of entire ownership by agreeing to this sites terms and conditions.

 

A peer review might still be preferred, along with some good old fashioned proof reading..

Unfolding Truth: Dismantling the World Bank's Myths on Agriculture and Development (PDF)

Unfolding Truth: Dismantling the World Bank's Myths on Agriculture and Development (PDF) | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
In the 1980s and 1990s, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) intervention in developing countries’ national policies, through aid conditionality and austerity programs known as Structural Adjustments Programs (SAPs), triggered a wave of global resistance against the International Financial Institutions (IFIs). in the face of growing criticism that these policies increased poverty, debt, and dependency on rich countries, saps were eventually withdrawn in 2002; however the World Bank, through renewed means, continues to pursue and impose its neoliberal agenda on the developing world.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 1, 2014 12:35 AM

An interesting tool for writers, which includes the following features:

Easy and efficient way to organize, structure and keep track of notes the way you want. Keep it simple or take it to the next level - advanced data management with unique type, tagging, templating and filtering features.

Trackers

This unique templating feature in Beyondpad will allow you to create your own forms for tracking things that are important to you. Track your time spent on a project, expenses, fitness and much more.

Tags

It’s much more that usual #tags. In Beyondpad you can tag notes and trackers, and even tag other tags and create folder like structure for neat filtering magic. Even notes can become tags and you can link to them. Tags have plenty of unique features to explore, you should check them out.

Notes

Text notes, checklists, links, numbers and timers - we have them! In trackers Beyondpad also gives you combo boxes and dropdowns. More items to come like image, date, calendar and map.
