No anonymity for sperm donors, court rules | Germany | DW.DE ... | reading and writing | Scoop.it
The decision of a regional appeals court in Hamm that the children of sperm donors have the right to know who their fathers are could have a wider impact – some 100,000 children in Germany were born to sperm donors.

Guillermo Altamirano's insight:

According to the law in different countries, each country protects the donors differently. Germany still cant protect their donors from child support, as USA does. In Spain the name of the donor is kept in secret, but in Britain is the right of the child to know who's their biological father at the age of 18. I think that in all countries the donor should be protected and out of the hook of any type of child support, but also the child have the right to know who's their biological father.

Improving Reading and Writing Using iPads - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | reading and writing | Scoop.it

Guillermo Altamirano's insight:

According to the article ipads are helpful to improve the kid's skills on reading and writing if is used properly. Further they implemented a research in a elementary in Ohio and it showed that kids with the ipad were more likely to pass that reading test, and more willing to do the journal homework. Also it talks about the benefits of an ipad versus smart phones and laptops. Even thou that some parents want to stick to the traditional way to study, the conclusion to the ipad its that it will prepared kids for a more technological world, and they wont have to struggle with it anymore.

Court rules sperm donors' children have right to know | News | DW ... | reading and writing | Scoop.it
A German court has decided that children of anonymous sperm donors have the right to know the names of their fathers. However, it remains unclear if the plaintiff involved in the case will ever find out the truth.

Guillermo Altamirano's insight:

now sperm donors are not allow to be anonymous anymore?  i do not think that is a good idea because what if the family is trying to get money our of the donor. i think they should make them sign a contract where it protects the donor benefits.

This is interesting because usually donors are anonymous. Knowing who the donor is and contacting them could potentially ruin that persons life. If the donor donated with the impression of being anonymous, then the court shouldnt give the child the right to know. that should be up to the donor

Guillermo Altamirano's insight:

the article was in some ways engaging with the study that he did, but there was not enough evidence. I would like to be more specific and detail on his conclusion because it did not seemed relevant to me. In the other side the conclusion was interesting because he compared and gave his own opinion about the research he did.
