This is a gold mine. Have a coffee, or a tea, or what ever suits your fancy and take in these story telling rules. Apply them right away, where possible, and then file them for future  reference, or come back here. I've scooped them for just that reason.

Welcome to the School of Data Handbook

The School of Data Handbook is a companion text to the School of Data. Its function is something like a traditional textbook – it will provide the detail and background theory to support the School of Data courses and challenges.

The Data Wrangling Handbook should be accessible to all learners. It comes with a Glossary explaining the important terms and concepts. If you stumble across an unexplained term or a concept that requires more explanation, please do get in touch.

My colleague Terese Bird (curator of Future of Learning) has just alerted me to the existence of this website. I don't read Chinese, so I can't be sure, but apparently this site contains a repository of translations of OERs originally produced in other languages. Where the original is in video or audio format (as in iTunes U, for example), the Chinese version contains sub-titles.

Judith van Praag's curator insight, March 1, 2013 10:36 AM

Yes! This is by far the best post I've come across with the three pigs (imagine a French accent here) as a topic. To offer "stir" as meaning of pique is helpful, for the closest to the irritation which the onomatopoea (more in French than English) brings forth. "Ça pique!" may be uttered after misplacing key's, suffering a bite of an ant, or better yet, someone else by a fly (as in the saying "Quelle mouche t'a picqué?") in that latte case the expression means what's bugging you?
As for a copy editor imaginative and inquisitive while correcting, a wholehearted Yes! to that as well.

A Palermo market taste of the Orient

A Palermo market taste of the Orient | Good for improve language | Scoop.it

A tour of the noisy Palermo market resembles a visit to an Oriental bazaar. Here you can have all senses are battered by crowding, shouting and strange sights and odours as a reminder of Sicily’s historical ties with the Arab world and the proximity to North Africa.[...]
In Palermo dialect Vucceria means ‘confusion’ and the market generally lives up to this name. It is open long into the evening, which may explain the local saying ‘quannu e balati ra Vucciria s’asciucanu’ – when the Vucceria pavement becomes dry – as an indication of something that will never happen.[...]
