Potentially, this looks quite interesting.  Freemium model, the free version looks robust enough to at least evaluate the product adequately.  Interesting that they suggest contacting them for details on LMS integration among other things.

How people in Muslim countries prefer women to dress in public

How people in Muslim countries prefer women to dress in public | sexology and education | Scoop.it
Even as publics in many of the surveyed Muslim-majority countries express a clear preference for women to dress conservatively, many also say women should be able to decide for themselves what to wear.

We've been discussing the Quebec Charter of Values and the limits it places on diversity in the Quebec landscape. Isn't it interesting that such legal limitations do not exist in many of the Muslim countries around the world.

For our colleagues who might be traveling in the middle east.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 5, 2:57 PM

I am not sure if it is because I am an independently raised western woman but this whole article seems to completely address women as property.  I realize that some countries are much stricter than others but it is not something I can comprehend.

While this is ostensibly a map that would be great for a cultural geography unit, I'm also thinking about the spatial patterns that created this map.  What current or historical migrations account for some of the patterns visible here?  What would a map like this look like it it were produced 50 years ago?  Why are Vermont and West Virginia the only states without a county with over 10% of the population that speak another language at home? 

 

Matthew DiLuglio's curator insight, October 5, 2013 2:34 PM

The presence of large numbers of people that speak languages other than English at home occurs on the east and west coasts of the U.S., but largely in the south and western areas of the U.S..  In high school we used to have discussions about how there were many immigrants coming into the U.S. from or through Mexico.  With migration comes cultural diffusion, as the people coming into the United States bring their language and many other cultural elements of their country of origin with them.  I know there are certain neighborhoods in cities in Rhode Island where most people that I see on the street are speaking Spanish.  I have a relative that has married an immigrant from Guatemala, and she learned that the North East coast of the U.S. Is where many people from Central America move to- often in groups that settle as communities to help each other.  I can understand that it is essential to live near people that speak your language, and it makes sense that their strength and comfort in numbers is also a way of having a "home away from home."  Being the area of the world on the southern land border of the U.S., and that Central America consists mainly of Spanish speakers, it fills in the Southern areas of the U.S. with people that speak a language other than English.  The coasts overall can be explained as being populated by people that speak languages other than English at home because they contain ports of travel and trade, and are points where many flights from other countries would land and drop off travelers and migrants.  That and beautiful ocean views make the coasts a great place for foreigners to settle and live.  These pull factors are likely influential reasons for people to relocate to the areas on the map.

Ryan Amado's curator insight, December 10, 2013 11:02 PM

This map does not bring many surprises.  Places where there are a lot of Spanish speaking families are present in places where many Spanish people immigrate to, along the Mexican border and the southern tip of Florida, where Cuba is close by.  One interesting thing about the French areas seen in Louisiana is that their version of French is a regional dialect. Not only is their a cluster of French speaking families, but they are all speaking a language native to the region.  It is very surprising that there are not as many French speaking families along the Canadien border.

Top 10 (Mostly Free) Apps for Classroom Management - Smart Apps For Kids | sexology and education | Scoop.it

"Great classroom management is key to success in any classroom. If you are a teacher, you know how it feels to walk into class on the first day of a new school year and think, "My kids were better than this last year." Then, you remember that you are comparing new students in your room who do not know your ways of doing things with kids you had for a whole school year. This is especially true for the lower grades."

En esta clase se presenta una posible secuencia para desarrollar una clase usando facebook. En la parte 2 que encuentras en http://goo.gl/dKTpn se propone un desarrollo con twitter (en mi opinión esta segunda es una propuesta menos desarrollada)

This describes challenges to human migration because it shows certain areas that people have moved to opposed to areas that have less population because of climate, area, etc...
