This resource is very useful for my presentation as it shows that education does not really need the use of technologies such as computers, mobile phones etc. to be productive.

It will support my point that sometimes too much ICT in the lives of children may ruin them.

When including this in my presentation without plagiarizing, i will rewrite the points that i want to take form this topic without copying from the article itself.

This infographic from Nueva School serves as inspiration for our own “design process” infographic. It’s called “Solution Thinking”, and it’s about using Solution Fluency in design projects.

Solution Fluency is bound by the tenets of Global Digital Citizenship and encompasses the other 21st Century Fluencies. We’ve put together an infographic to keep track of it all. Hope it proves helpful!

Humanæ  is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme.
 

The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels of the portrayed´s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones.


Humanæ it’s a pursuit for highlighting our subtle-continuous of our tones that make more equality than difference… our true colors, rather than the untrue Red and Yellow, Black and White. It is a kind of game for subverting our codes. The audience is free to read into it. The ultimate goal is to provoke and bring currently using internet as a discussion platform on ethnic identity, creating images that lead us to match us independent from factors such as nationality, origin, economic status, age or aesthetic standards.

I love this project. I had a similar idea when I got paint chips from the hardware store to see what color name my daughter would be; an idea that came to mind when filling out the census and thinking about tracking race in order to track discrimination.

Oliver Durrer's curator insight, October 23, 2014 11:38 AM

Decision making is an essential and key part of entrepreneurship. To optimize and systematize the decision-making process within your company is one element. Another crucial success factor for your business is to understand how your customers make decisions. Sharp consumer and customer insight is at the basis of any successful enterprise. The cultural component, respectively the value framework (individual vs. collective, spiritual vs. material, etc.) as well as the timeframe (linear vs. circular) your consumers and customers embody, guide their decisions. You have to embrace this in order to not only gain customers but also delight them and turn them into ambassadors of your products and services.

When writing an IEP for a student, are you considering their career path- especially if they are at the secondary level? School social workers teach these skills everyday.  Are they appropriately identified and articulated?

Who does race say that I am?

Who does race say that I am? | Global Competency and Learning | Scoop.it


Race has a lot to say about you and me, “us” and “them.”  This social construct tells us who we are and will be, where to go and where we are not welcome, whether we are in or out, center or margin.  Race tells us where we belong and when.  A director of our society, it gives us orders and in so doing, orders us, categorizes us, boxes us up and stacks us up on top of each other.


But, I think it’s time to interrupt, to get a word in, to change the conversation and the direction of our relationships.  Frankly, why does race have all the say about my life and the ways in which I live and perceive it?  Who says that I can’t butt in, that my life does not have a point to make a part from those stereotypical.


I used to like the social construct of race; that is, before I heard what it had to say about me.  I had listened but never fully considered its limitations.  And upon learning them, race gave me no other alternative.  I knew that our relationship would be different from many who preceded me because I could not agree with the terms.

In 1980, nearly half of U.S. counties -- 1,412 of them -- had populations that were almost exclusively (98 percent or more) white. Thirty years later, only 149 counties -- fewer than five percent -- fit that same description.
