Finally-- a note-taking platform that is free, and integrates elements of Universal Design. Classmint.com promotes active study routines using a hi tech, multi-sensory,  Cornell Notes approach which is great for kids with dyslexia who struggle with text notes in any format.  It is still under development but I really like what I see so far!--Lou

My wish: To launch a new era of openness in business

My wish: To launch a new era of openness in business | Business and Management Resources | Scoop.it
Anonymous companies protect corrupt individuals – from notorious drug cartel leaders to nefarious arms dealers – behind a shroud of mystery that makes it almost impossible to find and hold them responsible. But anti-corruption activist Charmian Gooch hopes to change all that. At TED2014, she shares her brave TED Prize wish: to know who owns and controls companies, to change the law, and to launch a new era of openness in business.

Bonnie Buchanan's insight:

While not the biggest fans of my software students using templates (I make them recreate them to hone their skills), there are some terrific formats that I hope my student consider using.

And for those of you who aren't in my class, there are also terrific ideas for anyone. Work smarter, not harder, I tend to say.

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country | Business and Management Resources | Scoop.it
The term Gross Domestic Product is often talked about as if it were “handed down from god on tablets of stone.” But this concept was invented by an economist in the 1930s. We need a more effective measurement tool to match 21st century needs, says Michael Green: the Social Progress Index. With charm and wit, he shows how this tool measures societies across the three dimensions that actually matter. And reveals the dramatic reordering of nations that occurs when you use it.
Bonnie Buchanan's insight:

Such a more effective way of seeing how successful we are as a world/country/community, etc. Thank you for giving us a new way to look at things that actually focuses on PEOPLE.

LOVE it!

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home | Business and Management Resources | Scoop.it
In 2013, international migrants sent $413 billion home to families and friends — three times more than the total of global foreign aid (about $135 billion). This money, known as remittances, makes a significant difference in the lives of those receiving it and plays a major role in the economies of many countries. Economist Dilip Ratha describes the promise of these “dollars wrapped with love” and analyzes how they are stifled by practical and regulatory obstacles.
Bonnie Buchanan's insight:

This is one of the items I spoke about in class today (10/15). I hope everyone has a chance to watch it.

Marshall Gass's curator insight, October 3, 2014 2:22 PM

This app seems the best way to manage those bulky manuscripts without it getting lost in transit. Perhaps, you add a copyright digital signature to each document ( which covers the entire Ms) and you are away. Its a much better way to organise the volume of work that piles up on a writers hard drive and clutters your thinking. Check it out.
