Centro Internazionale Studi Emigrazione Italiana: Researching Your Italian Origins On-Line

Centro Internazionale Studi Emigrazione Italiana: Researching Your Italian Origins On-Line | Teaching | Scoop.it

During the past 150 years of Italian unification, over 30 million people have left Italy. Setting out to make their fortunes overseas, this massive diaspora found Italian's settling in Northern Europe, North and South America, and Australia.
The hub of this migration was the port of Genoa, where departing Italian families set out for new world destinations. As the principle location in Italy's migration history, Genoa was a fitting home for CISEI (Centro Internazionale Studi Emigrazione Italiana), the International Centre of Italian Emigration Studies.
CISEI was formally established in 2006 but began the task of cataloguing emigration documents in early 2004. The documents are essential to realise its aim to collect has much information about each expatriate as possible. The collected data create the most comprehensive archive of Italian emigration and the database is now available online.
Recreating passengers’ embarkation lists from the Port of Genoa from 1876 to 1925 is no small task. Between 1876 and 1901, nearly 2 million people departed through the Port of Genoa, with another 1.7 million embarking between 1902 and 1925. With a small dropoff during World War II, Italian emigration continued at a steady pace until the 1970s.
CISEI has established relationships with various international institutions to share and consolidate information. [...]
Experts estimate that there are 50 million people in the world today with at least one-eight Italian blood. The monumental work of CISEI will ensure that these members of the Italian community will be able to investigate their family background from anywhere on the planet. Read More

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, April 9, 2013 5:50 AM

CISEI has been created in Genoa, historical port of departures of the big transoceanic migrations, to preserve and  enhance the value of memory on Italian emigration, with the double aim of creating a documental national archive of the Italian historical emigration and to establish contacts with national and international study centres and museums active on migration issues, both at a local-regional level in Italy,  and at international level  in Europe and around the world.

Free Earth (Google Earth Pro that is) !

Free Earth (Google Earth Pro that is) ! | Teaching | Scoop.it
Most amazing of all, Google made this tool available for free. This despite an educational -- and, let's be honest, entertainment -- value that's virtually impossible to measure.

What you maybe didn't know is that Google has long offered a Pro version of Earth as well, one that cost a hefty $399 per year. Now, however, you can get Google Earth Pro absolutely free.

First things first: The words "free trial" still appear in that URL, but as you'll see when you click through to the sign-up page, "Sign up is no longer required for Google Earth Pro." All you have to do is download the installer, run it, then sign in using your e-mail address (as your username) and license code GEPFREE.

WPI Teaching with Technology Collaboratory - Improving Your Teaching Presence in Distance Learning Courses

WPI Teaching with Technology Collaboratory - Improving Your Teaching Presence in Distance Learning Courses | Teaching | Scoop.it

Teaching presence is a significant component of the community of inquiry model developed by Garrison, Anderson and Archer in 2000. The components of this model are cognitive presence, social presence and teaching presence. Cognitive presence encompasses the course content and its contribution to critical thinking skills. Social presence is the social environment created in an online teaching course. Teaching presence includes the organization of course content, activities, and interaction along with the added expertise of the instructor (Anderson, Elloumi, 274). Teaching presence is defined in the model as "the design, facilitation, and direction of cognitive and social processes for the purpose of realizing personally meaningful and educationally worthwhile learning outcomes" (Anderson, Rourke, Garrison, Archer). Although the instructor is not physically present in a distance learning course, implementing the following techniques can improve the sense of presence for your students.

Follow the Things

"Who makes the things that we buy?  Few of us know. They seem untouched by human hands. Occasionally there's a news story, a documentary film, or an artwork showing the hidden ingredients in our coffee, t-shirts, or iPads. They often 'expose' unpleasant working conditions to encourage more 'ethical' consumer or corporate behaviour. followthethings.com is this work's 'online store'. Here you can find out who has followed what, why and how; the techniques used to 'grab' its audiences; the discussions and impacts that this has provoked; and how to follow things yourself."

Where did your T-Shirt come from?   Where did the food your parents bought at the grocery store come from?  What's the origin of the components in your cell phone?  These questions all allude to what geographers call a commodity chain analysis.  Analyzing where the consumer goods that we use every day came from can make global issues hit a little closer to home and reinforce concepts such as globalization. The website Follow the Things is a great resource for learning  about commodity chains and mapping out your own personal geographies.
