imagine as visual technology continue to progresses? can copyright be eventually obsolete? as it will be just too complicated, confusing and expensive to deal with? curious.

Freek Kraak's curator insight, July 23, 2013 2:50 AM

Absoluut mee eens: heel goed dit onderscheid: geïnspireerd zijn, voortbouwen op, verbeteren van, aanpassen van etc. het werk van anderen is iets heel anders dan gewoon alleen maar kopiëren en er vervolgens geld aan verdienen ten koste van de oorspronkelijke maker! Dit rigide verbieden werkt verstarring in de hand en is dus verwerpelijk. Wetgevers!: hier is werk aan de winkel!!!

Nog wel iets om over na te denken: ALS dit vervolgens veel geld oplevert, hoe gedenk je dan de oorspronkelijke maker, zeker als deze in armoede verkeert?

En erfgenamen: moeten zij voluit kunnen baden in de rijkdom van hun voorouders?

The Psychological Benefits of Writing ~ Sparring Mind

The Psychological Benefits of Writing ~ Sparring Mind | Teaching and Learning, Information Literacy, and Transliteracy | Scoop.it

by Gregory Ciotti

 

"The mental benefits of writing are numerous; here's the best research that details just how essential writing is for the intelligent mind.

 

"In these cases, writing has just become another tool for thinking, expression, and encouraging creativity; cabin dwelling novelists be damned.

 

"So, should people who don’t consider themselves writers bother with trying to make writing a regular habit?

 

Maybe.

 

"Writing can be an incredibly useful outlet for many people, but let’s look at some of the research on how writing can affect the mind, and you can make the decision for yourself."

One of the potential, long-term, very severe problems brought about by climate change is the potential to create up to 1 billion "climate refugees". How and where these people go when sea-level rise develops an impact on them is crucial to our future, both in terms of security, and resources.

“Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence”
A book by Christian Parenti

 

“Tropic of Chaos,” Christian Parenti’s epic new book, revolves around what the author refers to as catastrophic convergence, the “collision of political, economic and environmental disasters.” Catastrophic convergence is a culmination of the compounding and amplifying effects of adverse climate change, post-Cold War political violence and neoliberal economic philosophy.

 

Parenti, a meticulous writer and economist, uses a timeline and pan-geographic perspective to show how the first factor aggravates the latter two, like pouring gasoline on a raging fire. The combined effect causes the least protected people (such as the “climate change refugees”) the most amount of harm.

Pentagon Calls Climate Change Impacts "Threat Multipliers," Could Enable Terrorism | DeSmogBlog.com

Pentagon Calls Climate Change Impacts "Threat Multipliers," Could Enable Terrorism | DeSmogBlog.com | Teaching and Learning, Information Literacy, and Transliteracy | Scoop.it

The U.S. Department of Defense released the 2014 version of its Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) yesterday, declaring the threat of climate change impacts a very serious national security vulnerability that, among other things, could enable further terrorist activity. 


Released every four years, the QDR is a broad outline of U.S. military strategy discussing how to maintain global U.S. military hegemony. Like the 2010 document, the 64-page 2014 QDR again highlights the threats posed to national security by ever-worsening global climate disruption.

 

"The impacts of climate change may increase the frequency, scale, and complexity of future missions, including defense support to civil authorities, while at the same time undermining the capacity of our domestic installations to support training activities," the report details.

"Climate change poses another significant challenge for the United States and the world at large. As greenhouse gas emissions increase, sea levels are rising, average global temperatures are increasing, and severe weather patterns are accelerating."

 

For sake of context, some members of the U.S. Congress still deny the existence of climate change, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. But the Pentagon's assessment is that global warming is not only real, but also a civilizational threat, as stated in sobering language in the past three QDRs.

 

As outlined in Christian Parenti's 2011 book, "Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence," the military establishment understands climate change is an unparalleled global threat, saying so clearly in reports like the QDR. The problem: its activities around the world are in large part responsible for the threat to begin with.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 26, 2014 6:34 PM

Learning to ask good questions is a topic that is often discussed today..but how do we teach students to ask questions, questions that will help them use their higher order thinking skills. This post provides questions you may use with your students to help challenge their thinking. It is split into categories, but many of the questions could be across curriculum areas. The categories listed are:

* Logical questions that focus on mathematics and are split into two categories: collaborative questions for the class and self-reliance questions for individual students.

* Reasoning questions

* Analysis questions

* Connections questions

* Literary questions

* Science and social studies questions.

Below are three of the fifty questions. Click through to the post to find which may work with your students.

* An analysis question - What patterns might lead you to an alternative answer?
* A science and social studies question - What are some of the complexities we should consider?

* A reasoning question  - Why do you think this works? Does it always, why?
