Self-publishing: the Road to Independence

Self-publishing: the Road to Independence | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Major publishers are still churning out the same old books; lots of glossy covers and sales talk, but it’s the same kind of material. It is difficult for new talent to get published – safe names sell books, conferences, and webinars. The market, the students and the teachers are all crying out for change. Independent self-published authors are edging in and offering a much different menu. Nik Peachey, Phil Wade, Jorge Sette – just to name just a few – are a new breed of innovative independents with a fresh approach.

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Teachers are trying to get students to slow down and take note of how and why they are thinking and to see thinking as an action they are taking. But two other core components of metacognition often get left out of these discussions — monitoring thinking and directing thinking.

The Role of Rural Women in Agriculture

The Role of Rural Women in Agriculture | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Women are the backbone of the development of rural and national economies. They comprise 43% of the world’s agricultural labor force, which rises to 70% in some countries. In Africa, 80% of the agricultural production comes from small farmers, who are mostly rural women. Women comprise the largest percentage of the workforce in the agricultural sector, but do not have access and control over all land and productive resources. Realizing the importance of rural women in agriculture is an important aspect of gender relations. In many countries, the role of women in agriculture is considered just to be a 'help' and not an important economic contribution to agricultural production. Giving support to rural women is a way of breaking the vicious cycle that leads to rural poverty and to the expansion of slums in the cities, where the poor get poorer. Development strategies should consider rural women as the epicenter, paying special attention to their social skills both within and without agriculture sector."


Via Seth Dixon
Nevermore Sithole's insight:

While rural women play a substantial role in agriculture around the world, it is often not in positions of ownership, regional influence, and agency.  This is an article discussing how empowering rural women in the agricultural sector by changed the cultural and economic institutions that shape their work can truly change the world we live in.
