When we compare education systems around the world (which we do, quite often) to see what’s working and what isn’t, one of the metrics we often see is ‘school life expectancy’, otherwise known as how many years students go to school.

"For teachers and educators, the ability to creatively combine web content with interactive images offers an exciting way to share engaging digital platforms for learning. ThingLink is a popular interactive visual image network being used by thousands of teachers around the country. One image can provide students with a unique and comprehensive hands-on lesson with information included via videos, hyperlinks, text and much more. The company recently announced its new editor for annotating video content, which allows teachers to add notes in this media too. Today in The Global Search for Education, I have invited 3 educators - Jamie Forshey, Lisa Johnson, and Sue Fitzgerald - to share their favorite examples of how they have been using the ThingLink digital tool to promote meaningful and fun learning.


Jamie Forshey is an Instructional Technology Specialist and Computer Skills Instructor at the Bellwood-Antis School District in Blair County, Pennsylvania. She shares these three examples from her work with ThingLink:"

Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world."How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world. Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places. Tags: mapping, perspective.

We’ve spoken on other occasions about how certain dead languages, such as Latin, actually aren’t so dead after all, and in fact have continued to develop even after having been declared vanished. However, there is a group of languages that have effectively disappeared from the face of the Earth, and in this post we’ll briefly take a look at two such examples: Hunnic andEtruscan.

Despite having conquered almost all of Europe and a good part of Asia, there are practically no traces left of the language of the Huns. Currently the Hunnic language is considered to be unclassifiable and there is no consensus regarding its affinity with other languages. Certain contemporaries preserved a select few words, and though their tribal names seem to be of Turkic origin, the only three words that are known other than proper nouns (medos, a type of beverage similar to mead; kamos, a beverage made from barley; and strava, a funeral banquet) appear to derive from non-Turkic languages. Thus, these days it is still debated whether Hunnic was a Turkic, Altaic or Indo-Europeanlanguage, or perhaps a language that developed in isolation.

Another well-known people of which few if any linguistic traces remain are the Etruscans. It is believed that the last speaker of this language, which competed with Latin over centuries to be the dominant language of the region today representing central Italy, was Caesar Claudius, whose compilation on Etruscan history was lost, thus depriving humanity of a very valuable source of knowledge about this people. Today the references that remain of their language, which apparently is not related to the Indo-European languages, are mainly epitaphs or brief, repetitive votive formulas. Beyond these, among the few, more extensive records remaining, the most curious are the Liber Linteus, an Etruscan text of some 1,300 words that has the peculiarity of having been cut into strips and used to wrap a mummy, and the Pyrgi inscription, a bilingual text in Etruscan and Punic-Phoenician written on gold tablets. The latter record has offered the greatest insight into the study of Etruscan since the Punic-Phoenician text can easily be translated due to the fact that more is known about this language.

Beyond these records and the fact that Etruscan was written with a variant of the Greek alphabet (which makes it legible though not intelligible), just as with Hunnic, it is a language whose development was fully cut off and it ceased to be used many centuries ago, which makes it practically impossible to reach a clear, refined idea as to how these peoples spoke and communicated.

Most maps focus on demographics, geological makeup, and natural phenomena such as temperature and wind. No one focuses on other matters though, such as the alphabetic makeup of states when you sort their names in various ways. Break the names apart and put them back together. Examine the parts to gain a vision of the whole.

Being of service means becoming bigger than our normal selves and turning our focus to others - and it works the same way in business.


Value creation is the essence of business. Value is what attracts and retains customers and employees. It’s also what attracts and maintains relationships with investors, suppliers, distributors and other stakeholders who are critical to the firm’s success over time. A business that does not create value will eventually fail.

Primary education | Grades in different countries

Primary education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In order to achieve the goal by 2015, the United Nations estimates that all children at the official entry age for primary school would have had to be attending classes by 2009. This would depend on the duration of the primary level as well as how well the school schools retain students until the end of the cycle.
