Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning | techjacq | Scoop.it

"Connected learning is a necessity in this digital age. More and more of our students learning, attention, and access to information is taking place outside of classrooms and through online networks and exchanges. Connected learning, however, can help them cultivate the skills necessary for fulfilling adult lives and careers and that formal instruction alone could not afford."

This picture depicts the drug trade and how well it is or isnt regulated. Many officials are nervous about the drug trafficing and do not feel confident in enforcing the laws against drug cartel and drug trafficing. This photography depicts the efforts ofd the police to maintain order.

Amanda Morgan's curator insight, September 28, 2014 5:40 PM

This photo essay shows how much of an issue drug trafficking is in Mexico.  Not only is it more work and stress for their police and military but for average families as well. So many deaths are results of drug trafficking that it is an ordinary everyday occurrence. The food for guns program shows that no matter how poor or desperate they are they still have weapons.

Matt Danielson's curator insight, September 24, 1:22 PM
It is insane how much of an effect drug trafficking has had on the culture in Mexico. With 75% of Columbia's cocaine travelling through mexico, this is probably one of if not the most profitable trade in mexico. This makes it dominate life so much that there is even a patron saint of drug smuggling. At the cemeteries nearly all of the big and extravagant grave markers were even owned by traffickers.
