Sorry Bell, Accessing U.S. Netflix is Not Theft - Michael Geist

Sorry Bell, Accessing U.S. Netflix is Not Theft - Michael Geist | Teacher-Librarianship | Scoop.it
Bell Media president Mary Ann Turcke sparked an uproar last week when she told a telecom conference that Canadians who use virtual private networks (VPNs) to access the U.S. version of Netflix are stealing. Turcke is not the first Canadian broadcast executive to raise the issue - her predecessor Kevin Crull and Rogers executive David Purdy expressed similar frustration with VPN use earlier this year - but her characterization of paying customers as thieves was bound to garner attention.

The Caitlyn Jenner Reactions are Teaching Us a Valuable Lesson, Trans* or Otherwise | Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

The Caitlyn Jenner Reactions are Teaching Us a Valuable Lesson, Trans* or Otherwise | Amy Poehler's Smart Girls | Teacher-Librarianship | Scoop.it
Monday was historic. Not just because Caitlyn Jenner revealed herself for the first time on the cover of Vanity Fair — though her reveal is the cause of it — but because it mainstreamed the conversation about the way our world views the glorious spectrum of variety within it. It also highlighted an issue our society has with the way we discuss issues that affect both trans* people and women in general. Namely: looks! First thing's first: never seen the asterisk at the end of the word "trans*" be

Some Creepy Stick Figures and a Cup of Tea Just Explained Sexual Consent in a Perfect Way

Some Creepy Stick Figures and a Cup of Tea Just Explained Sexual Consent in a Perfect Way | Teacher-Librarianship | Scoop.it
You'll never look at a cup of oolong the same way again.
Jennifer Cowley's insight:

Add this one to your digital collections for sexual health.  The consent lesson is one that is too often skipped entirely and this little video pretty much covers all aspects of it. There are some f-bombs near the start, but they're used contextually (indicators of enthusiasm) and nowhere else.  Unless your language culture is especially uptight, this makes a great classroom resource.

Why can’t we read anymore? — Medium | Teacher-Librarianship | Scoop.it
Or, Can books save us from what digital does to our brains?

...

"When I think back on my life, I can define a set of books that shaped me — intellectually, emotionally, spiritually. Books have always been an escape, a learning experience, a saviour, but beyond this, greater than this, certain books became, over time, a kind of glue that holds together my understanding of the world. I think of them as nodes of knowledge and emotion, nodes that knot together the fabric my self. Books, for me anyway, hold together who I am."
