How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | ICT intiatives in Healthcare in Asia | Scoop.it

Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

I've made many more meaningful contacts through LinkedIn and Facebook. 

Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, April 17, 2013 9:22 PM

twitter alone might not be sufficient, as we (or most of us) not 'always online', we have to do other things. combining twitter with a mechanism to comb through the # and compile personalized feed, would be useful.

I'm a fledgling tweeter but love the way Twitter ignites discussion and ideas within a professional community.

Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields | True Activist

Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields | True Activist | ICT intiatives in Healthcare in Asia | Scoop.it

Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar. Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. In a similar stance against GM ingredients, Peru has also passed a 10 year ban on GM foods.

 

Planetsave reports:

 

Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary, deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said. The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added.

 

Unlike several EU members, GMO seeds are banned in Hungary. The checks will continue despite the fact that seek traders are obliged to make sure that their products are GMO free, Bognar said.

 

During the invesigation, controllers have found Pioneer Monsanto products among the seeds planted.

That's leadership for you. Imagine the monitoring/surveillance Hunary must have in order to be able to detect such crops before they set pollen. A mammoth task, but one to be applauded.
