"The Boston Public Library (BPL) is home to, "one of the largest and most important collections of abolitionist material in the United States," which includes thousands of letters, pamphlets, newspapers, and other materials from the early and mid-nineteenth century. BPL recently digitized this impressive collection on the platform Zooniverse and has enlisted citizen historians to transcribe these documents. In doing so, the BPL aims to create a collection that is freely available and machine-readable for those interested in pursuing digital research. Interested in helping out? Citizen historians will find a helpful tutorial in the transcribe section. In addition, this section of the website includes a helpful field guide to help participants with the task of interpreting nineteenth-century handwriting. The project also features a lively talk page where transcribers can crowdsource any questions that arise during the transcription process and share insights with fellow historians."

Kids aren't biased at age 6. And then this happens

David Lasso Garcia's curator insight, May 29, 11:33 AM
This is the summary of a long lasting study about the perception children have of scientists. It shows that most of children relate this kind of job with males. Although this idea has changed with the time, less than 30% of the participants draw scientist females. This stereotype needs to change as the role of women in society is very different to what it was in the past. It also talks About the responsibilities parents have on changing these mentality on their children.

Digital skills that teachers need for the connected classroom #1: Backchannels | Instructional Strategies and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
So if the students aren’t going to change to suit us (and after all, why should they?) we need to start changing the nature of the classroom and how we work within it, to exploit this ability to work across these parallel planes of digital and physical reality that our students inhabit.
