    1. производители контента научились подавать его так изящно и в такой красивой упаковке, что мы искренне кайфуем, когда в нас закидывают кучу всего
    1. Distributed content is any content that a publisher creates to live “natively” on an outside platform without directing any traffic back to your domain. This could mean allowing Facebook or Google to host your articles through Facebook Instant Articles or Google AMP. But it more generally means content you create specifically to live off-site on certain platforms.

      This definition of distributed content seems tragically flawed to me. If it doesn't live natively on a publisher's platform, then how is it exactly "distributed"? This definition is really more like silo-specific native content.

      It also seems predicate on publications entirely giving up all the agency and ownership of their own content. If they're creating content completely for silos, where's the value for them other than the diminishing returns of their brand recognition?

      Concepts like POSSE or PESOS are much better and more valuable in my mind by comparison.

      While the marketing idea of creating content that seems native to the platform on which it appears is valuable, publications still need to get eyeballs back to either their own platform or to places where their advertising, subscription, or other financial enterprise centers can directly benefit. Simply giving away the candy store without direct benefit to the publisher are only going to hasten their demise.

    1. A Burning Idea

      This works perfectly well for its purposes. I will say, it never occurred to me to link course blogs, for whatever reason. Well done!

    1. content their children read

      That is certainly true, but tell me why. Making the claim without elaboration (or at least a supporting citation) makes it disconcerting.

    2. In fact, censorship challenges are not very common in Norman, and this particular one was most likely brought on by the promotion of Hopkin’s books by the library before her visit. We believe that the parent might not have challenged it at all, without it being brought to their attention.

      The key word here is "challenges," not censorship in general. It is really important to at least make note of how books that were going to be objected to were definitely going to be objected to were unlikely to be purchased in the first place, or at least acknowledge the possibility.

    3. It is important to remember that while the reconsideration committee ultimately ruled in favor of Glass, the Whittier parent’s attempt at censorship was still successful in that Ellen Hopkins’s visit to the school was canceled. Because of faulty administrative action, the opinions of one parent were allowed to dictate the experience of Whittier’s entire student body.

      Be careful of downplaying the significance and danger of the book having even been challenged and temporarily removed at all, just because Hopkins' visit is more exciting.

    1. Primary Sources

      Once again, an intro here would be appreciated. Maybe speak on how you got these documents and interviews?

    1. City’s Channel 9 News on September 22, 2009. “My Two Cents” is a weekly segment where Ogle voices his (usually conservative) opinions on local and state issues. While we were unable to locate any footage of the segment, the accounts of it provided by Karin Perry in True Stories of Censorship Battles in America’s Libraries and Ellen Hopkins’s own blog posts suggest that Ogle agreed with the decision to remove Hopkin’s books from the library and cancel her visit. The newscaster apparently admitted to

      I quite like this paragraph. It seems well-written.

    1. The topic was heavily covered on the local news

      Examples?

    2. Canceling her visit was censorship, even though the committee ultimately decided to not take the book out of the library.

      Attempting to remove a book and failing is attempted censorship and a legitimate topic for this course, regardless...

    1. ate ca

      All the graphs and images here are very nice and informative, as well as aesthetically appealing. I especially enjoy how you managed to have your graphs and charts use the same colour scheme as your website.

    1. About

      Again, just a few sentences describing this section would be good. Though, thinking on it, the clickable navigation boxes also make navigation feasible on mobile devices. Well done!

    1. smut

      I know what it is, but you're still going to want to explain what smut is. If your readers have to infer from your use of "pornographic material" later, that is not a good sign.

    2. Recent Censorship

      It would likely be worth including a sentence or two here about how the pre-censorship of content prevents later challenges.

    1. Censorship of YA Literature

      My urge is to complain about this entire section for being too short and not particularly in depth, though I suppose too long a page is also a negative. The writing here simply seems incomplete. Why both claiming a history of the genre when it consists of three sentences?

    1. Discussions of sexuality are among the most frequently challenged throughout all of literary history, often more heavily censored than explicit violence, at least in Western literature and media.

      Take care with your generalization here. You are focusing on an American case, so perhaps narrow your claims there. Modern France, for instance, censors violence in cinema rather heavily but has few qualms with sexuality.

    2. congruous

      It seems somewhat hypocritical for me of all people to comment on this, but I would advise caution in using language that increases the entry barrier to engaging with your content.l

    1. Historical Context

      A short introduction to this section, even just a couple of sentences, would be greatly appreciated. It does not need much, but having nothing seems problematic.

    1. incident

      The use of "incident" to describe your case urks me here. I am not 100% sure why. Perhaps it feels like downplaying and obfuscating?

    1. The Lavazza Calendar , now in its 27th edition, is created under the creative direction of the Armando Testa agency and was presented in Turin at Nuvola Lavazza on 21 November.
    1. “We still have many untapped opportunities to keep developing our markets, bring purpose into all of our brands, and that will translate into more opportunities for growth right across our considerable geographic footprint.”​Jope stressed the need to deliver “quality”​ growth that is consistent, competitive, profitable and responsible.“To have consistent growth, we need to use the breadth of our portfolio to avoid or minimize the impact of onetime shocks. Competitive growth is simple, growing ahead of our markets. Profitable growth is going to require that we get the right balance of price and volume mix in any period as well as keep delivering strong savings and efficiency programs.​“And finally, our growth will, of course, be responsible, which means putting purposes into our brands and making continued progress on the ambitious environmental and social roles that we set out in the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan.​“It is not purpose ahead of profits. It's purpose that drives better profits.”​

      Again, an article that presents the conflicting nature of a purpose brand. This clearly states the new CEO of Unilver is going to put profit first. This is my last annotation. Overall, I would say that I still find the 50 foods campaign reliable. If you look at it simply as an informative document I think it is accurate, and a good publication However I think it is worth it to understand the authors as well. Unilever is not a perfect company, nor is WWF. Far from it. I hope that we can support this 50 foods campaign and other good choices while still holding Knorr Unilever and WWF accountable for their contradictions, hypocrisy, corruption, and bad choices.

    1. “Unilever believes that complete transparency is needed for radical transformation,” Engel said in a statement posted on Unilever’s website. Advertisement“This is a big step toward greater transparency, but we know there is more work to be done to achieve a truly sustainable palm oil industry and we will continue our efforts to make this a reality.”

      This is an interesting move. On the one hand, I wish Unilever woulds stop messing with products like whitening skin cream and pal oil. But if they are going to use palm oil I'd rather they be transparent about it. It makes me hope, perhaps naively that they will always be transparent about what they do. It's encouraging and discouraging at the same time.

    1. Fair & Lovely is not the only Unilever product to shore up problematic ideas about skin colour. In 2013 the company drew criticism for a body lotion promotion campaign in Thailand, which appeared to portray lighter skinned female students as smarter than dark-skinned ones.  Its other brands such as Pond’s also contain whitening lotions.  Unilever’s wares are also not the only ones on the market to run counter to the spirit of the SDGs; every single product that implies that any skin colour is inferior is guilty of this. (One might argue that tanning products also sell a way for people to temporarily change their skin colour, but pale skin carries much less socio-cultural baggage than dark skin does). 

      It's really horrifying that Unilever sells skin whitening products. It makes me trust them much less. It's such an ignorant thing for a supposedly smart and sustainable company to do.

    2. While there have been some valid feminist critiques about Dove’s emphasis on beauty and empowerment through consumerism, Dove and Unilever’s other Sustainable Living Brands have, by and large, lived up to the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals.  But products such as Fair & Lovely contravene the goals on several counts. Goal 5, for instance, aims to empower all women and girls.  While Fair & Lovely ostensibly wants to “give women the confidence to overcome their own hesitations and fears to achieve their true potential”, it has spent decades portraying dark-skinned women as people who are overlooked romantically and professionally, until they buy their way to fairer skin.  If a company truly wants to empower women, surely a better way to do this is to break down stereotypes that perpetuate sexism and colourism—that is, discrimination on the basis of skin colour—rather than to sell people a product to pander to those insecurities?

      At the beginning of the semester, we talked about how gender equality and female empowerment are part of sustainability. This is a very good point. If Unilever doesn't remember or care about things like this, it undermines their other goals.

    1. Unilever cannot be faulted for its dedication and good intentions. And as long as sustainability equals efficiency, all is well. Both Unilever and the world benefit, exactly the way Paul Polman likes it. Reducing the use of pesticides is good for both the environment and the company’s shareholders. The more fruit a palm oil tree can bear, the less land will have to be cleared. But win-win scenarios are not often as clear-cut. Personal care product sales are up and while this means sustainability brownie points for Unilever, it also causes environmental problems in the emerging economies. And the Roundtable which was supposed to promote sustainability, has become a lightning conductor for an unsustainable production model. Unilever’s proud boast is that it has managed to ‘decouple’ or separate higher revenue from environmental impact. It is a first move towards the beacon of sustainable growth. A closer look at the company’s Sustainable Living Plan shows Unilever is on schedule in most areas (although deadlines are moved about), except when it comes to the environmental impact of consumer use. That is where the bullets on the sustainability dashboard turn an angry red. Greenhouse gas emissions ‘per consumer unit' went up eight per cent from 2010. That poses a problem, since two thirds of Unilever’s total CO2 emissions stem from consumer use. So the business is growing – but not in a very green way. People want to consume responsibly but not less. Authorities are willing to go green as long as the public purse does not suffer. And companies are no longer bogey men but part of the solution. Paul Polman is a welcome guest because his message is a comfortable one. As head of a transnational company he is making the world a better place. But unlike his idols Ghandi and Mother Theresa, the Unilever boss, while looking after People and Planet, must never lose sight of Profit, as the recent Kraft-Heinz takeover attempt attests.

      I think this is one of the most objective reviews of former CEO of Unilever, and is accurate about the current state of Unilever. I think we should always take what a company says about sustainability with a grain of salt because it is still trying to profit. But, we need people who care in business. Businesses contribute to pollution more than anyone else. Unilever is still kind of in a gray area, but I think their efforts still make them reputable overall, at least in the eyes of the public.

    1. The firm, behind more than 400 brands from Ben & Jerry's ice-cream to Dove soap, has pledged to remove sexist stereotypes from its own ads and called on rivals to follow suit.Some 40% of women did not identify with their portrayal in adverts, it said.The firm spends £6bn a year on adverts.The figure makes it the second-biggest advertiser globally and chief marketing officer Keith Weed told the BBC this gave it a responsibility to push the change "on a broader society level". /**/ (function() { if (window.bbcdotcom && bbcdotcom.adverts && bbcdotcom.adverts.slotAsync) { bbcdotcom.adverts.slotAsync('mpu', [1,2,3]); } })(); /**/ He said the campaign, dubbed Unstereotype, was the culmination of two years of research.

      Although this article is not related to sustainable food, it does discuss things on the UN goals like gender equality. The fact that Unilever cares about removing stereotypes from its ads shows that not only are they conscious of the current climate of gender discussions, they are also conscious of representing gender equality publicly. This enhances their reputation and credibility ethics-wise.

    1. In January 2017, corporate behemoth Unilever unveiled a new commitment to ensuring that all of its plastic packaging is fully reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. The commitment was built on a recognition that the global plastics market was broken; nine months later, Blue Planet 2 aired, alerting the public to the environmental hazards of plastics.

      This article describes Unilever's plans to change the way it uses plastic. It shows that Unilever cares about sustainability because they are transparent about the economic benefits of being more sustainable as well as the benefits to the planet.

    1. The city of New York’s Building Healthy Communities initiative, Unilever and Green City Force came together to find a solution.Instead of trying to get fresh food in, they decided to grow it right where it was needed. By creating six urban farms, access to fresh produce in underserved neighbourhoods has increased, as has the knowledge of local residents about how food is grown, and healthy eating. This is community impact in action!Unilever have taken a step further, creating Growing Roots - an organic, plant-based food snack that donates half of its profits to urban farming programmes, whilst allowing others to join and dig in to help grow a better future for communities across the US.

      This is one part of Unilevers comprehensive website about sustainability. The site shows that Unilever frequently collaborates with sustainable organizations and that they care about many sustainable issues.

    1. For its part, Knorr has been working closely with farmers in its supply chain to meet sustainable agricultural standards and to implement new techniques for mitigating water waste in its crop production, such as drip irrigation. Farmers who have been participating in Knorr’s program for three years have saved an average of 10.6 kilotons of water.

      This demonstrates work Knorr has done to impact water usage in the food industry, with great results. It gives the company a great reputation and makes the content more reliable.

    1. The creative directors for Armando Testa are Andrea Lantelme and Federico Bonenti, the copy bears the signature of Stefano Arrigoni. Production of The Box Films. Edelman Italia, Burson-Marsteller Italia and  Studio Suitner have collaborated in communication and press office activities.
    1. n writing this report, Knorr, WWF and Adam Drewnowski are grateful for input and review from experts at Bioversity International, Crops For the Future, EAT Foundation, Edelman, Food and Land Use Coalition (FOLU), Food Reform for Sustainability and Health (FReSH), GAIN, Global Crop Diversity Trust, Gro Intelligence, Oxfam GB, SDG2 Advocacy Hub, Wageningen University and Yolélé Foods. This report ultimately reflects the views of Knorr, WWF and Adam Drewnowski.

      I believe that this makes Knorr Unilever seem reliable as a source as well as making the content seem reliable, and the author objective and understanding. This is because the 3 authors of the document collaborated with so many different sources to write the paper. It would seem that have a well-rounded grasp of the topic.

    1. And the images of the American photojournalist celebrate the good news coming from the Earth and the Earth, identified all over the world together with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
    1. Fans queued for over 2-hours to see the studio and 20k+ people watched the music recordings live on Facebook - impressive given it was 2am! Fans snapped up the limited edition E.ON x Gorillaz EP's we created, and over 82k+ people streamed the tracks created on SoundCloud.
    1. Gorillaz founder and bassist Murdoc Niccals, said “These days I’m not just a feminist, I’m an environmentalist too. That’s why Gorillaz has partnered up with E.ON – the leading eggheads in solar storage – to create a spanking new studio that not only lets us create more mind-blowing music, it also saves the planet. E.ON do batteries as well, meaning we can keep banging out killer tunes even after dark.”
    2. Billy Faithfull, ECD at WCRS, said: “Ambitious clients, brave strategists, fame hungry creatives, fanatical music consultants, an inspired director, bulletproof producers, a thousand solar powered toys, a giant ball of gas in the sky and four beat-crazed figments of pure electronic pop imagination. True collaboration comes when everyone is firing on all cylinders. I count myself lucky to have been in the right time and the right place to blinded by it all and along for the ridiculous bone-shaking ride.”
    1. Reaching over 59m people with over 82.6m views, our film catapulted E.ON into popular culture. This resulted in a huge lift in brand (141%) and creative (97%) interest in the UK, with even higher spikes in other markets. The campaign has also picked up a raft of awards, including three DMAs and top prizes at the D&ADs, Webby’s and The Drum Awards.
    1. E.ON global head of marketing Anthony Ainsworth said: "Gorillaz have always inspired audiences and artists with their bold and pioneering approach to sound and visuals and that's exactly what this project was set up to showcase."

    1. Anthony Ainsworth, Global Head of Marketing at E.ON, commented: “Our collaboration with Gorillaz brings the possibilities of solar power and battery storage to life - using the sun’s energy as the driving force behind an incredibly creative and ambitious project. Gorillaz have always inspired audiences and artists with their bold and pioneering approach to sound and visuals and that’s exactly what this project was set up to showcase. 
    2. Gorillaz founder and bassist Murdoc Niccals, said “These days I’m not just a feminist, I’m an environmentalist too. That’s why Gorillaz has partnered up with E.ON – the leading eggheads in solar storage – to create a spanking new studio that not only lets us create more mind-blowing music, it also saves the planet. E.ON do batteries as well, meaning we can keep banging out killer tunes even after dark.”
    1. “There is an increasing number of people not just interested in innovative energy solutions like battery and solar panels but ready to engage with an energy company in a different way,” Emma Inston, E.ON's global head of brand and customer communications, told The Drum. “We’re absolutely going to be at the heart of that movement and in the same way as we’ve transformed our company over the last couple of years, we’re working to transform our brand to truly represent the help we can give our customers today and in the future.”

    1.   The “Good to Earth” Calendar, a creative project by Armando Testa, will make its debut on November 21st in Turin, in the Nuvola Lavazza. The event will reveal the photographs by Ami Vitale and the original works of nature art installations produced by six artists, each using a different technique, which become an integral part of the landscape, in harmony with the ecosystem and vegetation.
    2. Turin, October 29th, 2018 - Nature becomes art in the 2019 Lavazza Calendar
    1. “It is an original mix of the story told in pictures by Vitale and the works of internationally famous urban artists who have embarked on what can only be described as a process of co-creation with the environment,” said Francesca Lavazza, curator of the Lavazza Calendar, and a member of the board of directors of the company.
    2. These are the six art installations, set in the environment - forests, deserts, glaciers and cities - featured in the 2019 Lavazza Calendar, Good to Earth.
    1. the left side of the brain

      The specialization in the left hemisphere also has a lot to do with trends towards the dominant eye. In research done by Dr. David Carey, he noted that, " these asymmetries have been linked to the specialization of the left hemisphere of the brain" (Carey, D. P. 2001). The dominant eye, as most other dominant body parts, trends towards the right.

    2. where images tend to be focused

      When we focus on an image, we track it in our line of sight. Recent research done on how we see images shows"A retinal image depends not only on vertical and horizontal, but also on the torsional direction of the eye orientation"(Poljac, E., Lankheet, M. J. M., & van, d. B. 2005). In order to account for the torsion, our visual system compensates by up to +/- 9 degrees.

    3. The fovea contains densely packed specialized photoreceptor cells

      During research conducted by Vijay Gorantla, on potential eye transplants, one of the many challenges he faced was the sheer number of cells in the retina. He saw that, "more than a million retinal ganglion cells form a single layer in the retina of the human eye"(Couzin-Frankel, J. 2015). All these cells are very densely packed, as millions of them must fit in a single layer.

    1. Multicultural counseling and therapy aims to offer both a helping role and process that uses modalities and defines goals consistent with the life experiences and cultural values of clients. It strives to recognize client identities to include individual, group, and universal dimensions, advocate the use of universal and culture-specific strategies and roles in the healing process, and balancs the importance of individualism and collectivism in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of client and client systems (Sue, 2001).

      While clinicians know that they need to be more socio-culturally attuned in their practice, not all of them realize exactly how to achieve this. In order to be socio-culturally attuned, the clinician must follow these steps. "Attune to Context and Power, Value What is Minimized, Intervene in Power Dynamics, Envision Just Alternatives, and Transform to Make the Imagined a Reality." (McDowell, T., Knudson-Martin, C., & Bermudez, J. M.)

    2. As our society becomes increasingly multiethnic and multiracial, mental health professionals must develop cultural competence ([link]), which means they must understand and address issues of race, culture, and ethnicity. They must also develop strategies to effectively address the needs of various populations for which Eurocentric therapies have limited application (Sue, 2004). For example, a counselor whose treatment focuses on individual decision making may be ineffective at helping a Chinese client with a collectivist approach to problem solving (Sue, 2004).

      Minorities, and in particular the Latino community, seek therapy less often than Caucasians in the United States, and there are a few reasons for this, including fear of legal issues, a stigma around the concept of psychotherapy, and importantly, a fear of their struggles being miscommunication. A 2012 study of the Latino American population in the Midwest helped to affirm that there are a couple things that can be done to improve this. One is to have more bilingual therapists, which would help lessen fears of miscommunication. The other is to educate people about mental health problems in order to lessen the stigma surrounding them. (Rastogi, M., Massey-Hastings, N., & Wieling, E. 2012)

    3. This therapeutic perspective integrates the impact of cultural and social norms, starting at the beginning of treatment. Therapists who use this perspective work with clients to obtain and integrate information about their cultural patterns into a unique treatment approach based on their particular situation (Stewart, Simmons, & Habibpour, 2012). Sociocultural therapy can include individual, group, family, and couples treatment modalities.

      Additionally, many psychology professionals are currently working on new ways of educating and informing clinicians about how they can be more socio-culturally attuned. A prime example of this is a study conducted by a group of therapists in 2014, in which therapy sessions were rigorously examined, and following the sessions, the researchers discussed how well socio-cultural attunement was implemented. (Perron, N. J., Perneger, T., Kolly, V., Dao, M. D., Sommer, J., & Hudelson, P. 2009)

    4. This therapeutic perspective integrates the impact of cultural and social norms, starting at the beginning of treatment. Therapists who use this perspective work with clients to obtain and integrate information about their cultural patterns into a unique treatment approach based on their particular situation (Stewart, Simmons, & Habibpour, 2012). Sociocultural therapy can include individual, group, family, and couples treatment modalities.

      Researchers have identified a few ways of rating clinicians on their socio-cultural attunement. One of which is using a computer based simulation to find out how well they can identify important socio-cultural factors in a simulated therapy session. A study published in the Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice concluded that computer based rating scores correlated positively with people's opinions about how well they were socio-culturally attuned, meaning that the simulation is an effective way of evaluating them. (Pandit, M. L., Chen-Feng, J., Kang, Y. J., Knudson-Martin, C., & Huenergardt, D. 2014)

    1. Scientists use deductive reasoning to empirically test their hypotheses.

      Because we have scientist, thankfully, we can trust what they have to say despite what random people say or what we hear from them, just like this quote say "Fortunately, dedicated scientists are willing to do the research necessary to protect us from those who, knowingly or unknowingly, threaten our health by marketing untested medical products." (Woosley, 2013)

    2. We should be informed consumers of the information made available to us because decisions based on this information have significant consequences

      Being available to the research in the world includes these few things in the article 'Public medicine and research- important and challenging' "Research activity enforces reading, being updated, thinking creatively initiating, opening horizons and being in contact with researchers all over the world." (Pillar & Shapira, 2015)

    3. At various times in history, we would have been certain that the sun revolved around a flat earth, that the earth’s continents did not move, and that mental illness was caused by possession

      When a person does their research after hearing something they may not believe to be true of they do research and that will tell them whether it is true or not, in this article 'Demystifying Research: Uncovering important information' it say "However, if the reader is will- ing to look at the report systematically, it is not difficult to discover the main points and take-away message or information (Polit & Beck, 2012)."

    4. Scientific research is a critical tool for successfully navigating our complex world.

      Research is very important, it has grown and been one of the main things in this world since decades ago. It doesn't even matter what the research is on, research for any topic is important "Health services research (HSR) has expanded dramatically in the recent decades, particularly in surgery. " (Ban & Bilimoria, 2016)

    1. Although creativity is often associated with the arts, it is actually a vital form of intelligence that drives people in many disciplines to discover something new.

      Discipline can look very different depending on if someone enjoys what they are doing. Someone who really enjoys baseball might not mind spending hours practicing their swing. In turn, they really care about what they are doing and take the extra care to make sure they are not simply "going through the motions". This is discipline. Someone who doesn't like baseball could spend the same amount of time practicing, but if they are carelessly swinging without proper mechanics, there is a lack of discipline. This idea is important with creativity and how it develops. According to recent research the environment in which people are believed to be most creative is when they are doing something in which they enjoy but at that same time it still challenges them (Hennessey and Amabile, 2010). Going back to our baseball example creativity might look like a dedicated player developing a new way to swing that has more power because he uses the fundamentals in a different way than before.

    2. Think about your own family’s culture.

      The Culture in the United States is innovation and improving what already exists. If you can do these two things you are deemed intelligent. This is shown in a study done that compared state IQ and utility patents. According to the study "high-IQ" states have more utility patents when compared with states that score a lower average IQ tests (Squalli and Wilson, 2014). Although this may be a good thing in the united states it would not matter much if in a different culture there was no such thing as patents. If there were no patents trying to create them would not be valuable.

    3. obert Sternberg developed another theory of intelligence, which he titled the triarchic theory of intelligence because it sees intelligence as comprised of three parts (Sternberg, 1988): practical, creative, and analytical intelligence

      Recent research has found that there is more of a link between intelligence and creativity than previously thought to be (Nusbaum and Silvia, 2011). This correlation was found in studies done at the University of Greensboro, in North Carolina. Experiments done showed that people that were more creative or outside the box thinkers knew lots about many categories of things and less about individual things within a certain field/category. On the other end of the spectrum those who were thought to be intelligent had greater in depth knowledge in certain categories but in fewer catagories. The real finding though, was that people who were deemed extremely intelligent possessed both traits of knowing relatively little about a lot of things but at the same time knew how to relate these things to ideas they had a better understanding of.

    4. Like the father in this example, psychologists have wondered what constitutes intelligence and how it can be measured.

      Intelligence is created and developed from multiple factors (Deary, 2013). These factors are influenced by the environment and ones genetic make up. Intelligence itself has rarely been isolated in modern experiments (Deary, 2013). Due to the lack of isolating what makes up intelligence in studies, there is still a lack of ways in which it can be measured. However, technology has been catching up and certain scanners can now tell when portions of the brain are stimulated while thinking certain ways (Hennessey and Amabile, 2010).

    1. The prevailing public perception of the drive for women's votes envisions a small, doggedly, determined group of women who persisted against the odds until men finally "gave" them the vote. Nothing could be further from the actual facts of a mass movement that encompassed the lives of several generations of American women, employed highly sophisticated political strategy and organization, and developed brilliant, politically savvy, charismatic leaders.

      Sub-headers, in this case, introduce the speaker in the video, with videos arranged with hyperlinks in blocks of text.

    1. The cost of not having a comprehensive base of content knowledge can be prohibitive; for example, students can receive incorrect information and develop misconceptions about the content area (National Research Council, 2000; Pfundt, & Duit, 2000)

      The importance of understanding the full extent of the content we are teaching is to give our students correct information. Learning incorrect information and having "misconceptions about the content area" is detrimental to our students' learning.

    2. As Shulman (1986) noted, this knowledge would include knowledge of concepts, theories, ideas, organizational frameworks, knowledge of evidence and proof, as well as established practices and approaches toward developing such knowledge. Knowledge and the nature of inquiry differ greatly between fields, and teachers should understand the deeper knowledge fundamentals of the disciplines in which they teach

      It is important to not only understand what the content is that we are teaching but to understand what goes into the content that we are teaching. The article gives exampled of art and science; the importance is not only on the art or science it is the history and understanding of artists and their meaning and "knowledge of scientific facts and theories, the scientific method, and evidence-based reasoning"

    3. Equally important to the model are the interactions between and among these bodies of knowledge, represented as PCK, TCK (technological content knowledge), TPK (technological pedagogicalknowledge), and TPACK

      The interaction of all three areas is important because it will help us to understand technology when it comes to lesson planning and content knowledge. Knowing what types of technology to use based on our pedagogical methods and the content that we are teaching our students will help us to implement them to ensure full understanding from our students.

    1. A growing body of research indicates that interest helps us pay attention, make connections, persist and engage in deeper learning

      Making content relatable and interesting to ouor students will help them to be more engaged in what we are teaching.

    1. the ability to effectively use content knowledge and skill

      Understanding content and how to use it to prove a point, explain a topic, or shed light on an issue

    1. "What is regarded as important and interesting is what is likely to be recognised by others as important and interesting, and thus to make the man who produces it appear more important and interesting in the eye of others."

      There are many different reasons scientists research different subject matters. These intentions are not always known to the public, but the public has a sense of hope that these intentions are in the interest of the people and the research is done to better those who will be affected. The research to find a cure to cancer is a prime example where the people hope this research is done to better the people. The public hopes that scientists will find a cure to save their loved ones. However, this quote bursts this bubble of hope, in a sense. It takes away the innocence of these good intentions and creates doubt in the minds of the public. This quote makes the people wonder if research is being conducted to further the professional reputation of the scientists by being the first one to discover a knew piece of information and create history. People often default to thinking others have the best intentions in mind, but this quote brings a sense of darkness about that innocence. Is research really conducted to benefit the public, or is it done so a scientist can become a piece of history?

    1. “We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.”

      Isn't a lot of their community people who share and interact with just this sort of content?

    1. For tech firms, he argued in one interview, a goal should be to “have positive content pushed out about your company and negative content that’s being pushed out about your competitor.”

      Reminds me a bit of an old adage within CAA, but this one is far more toxic than the positive version that CAA used. Theirs amounted to occupying executives with CAA client meetings and material so they just didn't have time to handle other talent.

    1. Instructional Design Strategies for Intensive Online Courses: An Objectivist-Constructivist Blended Approach

      This was an excellent article Chen (2007) in defining and laying out how a blended learning approach of objectivist and constructivist instructional strategies work well in online instruction and the use of an actual online course as a study example.

    1. Distance Education Trends: Integrating new technologies to foster student interaction and collaboration

      This article explores the interaction of student based learner-centered used of technology tools such as wikis, blogs and podcasts as new and emerging technology tools. With distance learning programs becoming more and more popular, software applications such as Writeboard, InstaCol and Imeem may become less of the software of choice. The article looks closely at the influence of technology and outcomes.

    1. "I am really pleased to see different sites deciding not to privilege aggressors' speech over their targets'," Phillips said. "That tends to be the default position in so many online 'free speech' debates which suggest that if you restrict aggressors' speech, you're doing a disservice to America—a position that doesn't take into account the fact that antagonistic speech infringes on the speech of those who are silenced by that kind of abuse."

    1. If you look long enough you can find my early terrible writing. You can find blog posts in which I am an idiot. I’ve had a lot of uninformed and passionate opinions on geopolitical issues from Ireland to Israel. You can find tweets I thought were witty, but think are stupid now. You can find opinions I still hold that you disagree with. I’m going to leave most of that stuff up. In doing so, I’m telling you that you have to look for context if you are seeking to understand me. You don’t have to try, I’m not particularly important, but I am complicated. When I die, I’m going to instruct my executors to burn nothing. Leave the crap there, because it’s part of my journey, and that journey has a value. People who came from where I did, and who were given the thoughts I was given, should know that the future can be different from the past.

    1. To understand the current information ecosystem, we need to break down three elements:The different types of content that are being created and sharedThe motivations of those who create this contentThe ways this content is being disseminated
    1. In Chile, the Rosas et al. study (2003) evaluated the effects of introducingeducational video games into the classroom and found indications ofpositive effects on learning, motivation and classroom dynamics.

      Good publication to look at research studies proving OCC and video game creations and educational tools were beneficial to classrooms

    1. When young people help to create content for the Internet -- when they experience being active participants, contributing to what there is online -- they are more likely to see the Internet as a resource that they understand and use effectively. By contrast, when people, especially the young and underrepresented, do not have a chance to experience the Internet as something they have a part in shaping, they miss out on being more closely connected to a wealth of resources, information, interaction, and opportunities for growth that can help them to cross over the digital divide.

      Great point- when students are guided in creating online content, they become more comfortable with using technology to propel them forward in their learning

    1. Traditional education is failing to engage many students as they enter their middle school, high school, and college years. The culture clash between formal education and interest-driven, out-of-school learning is escalating in today’s world where social communication and interactive content is always at our fingertips. We need to harness these new technologies for learning rather than distraction.

      I agree with this. As the work load becomes more demanding, students tend to be too overwhelmed and lose interest in the content and material.

    1. Acquisition of content is a means, in the service of meaning making and transfer.

      Teachers need to make content meaningful and relatable so they see the big picture in the end.

    1. Other Recent Challenges

      I like how you went ahead and limited the scope of challenges. I'm sure there were plenty beforehand, but keeping it within the time frame likely helped with your sanity.

    1. Interview with Dr. Richards

      Interesting idea to incorporate the interview content in three ways. Those who want to use it as an article can do so, and those who want the original source can still access it.

    1. This is one of my favorite parts of the website. I think this a is a great organizational tool and something I want to try for in our website.

    1. When you click on a source with multiple documents and it brings you to a page like this that lists the different documents for each topic. I like the way they organize everything. It's very simple and clean.

    1. Recent Additions

      This is a neat way to share what kind of content is found through this site. It shows recent additions, so if people were just looking around they can go through them. The only problem with this is that this site seems like a place you would go if you were already looking into a particular topic.

    2. 700 digital collections

      There is a ton of information you can find through this site, which I thought was really impressive. If I was ever looking for primary sources for a women's history project, I would probably use this site.

    1. an environment unlike anything they will encounter outside of school

      Hm? Aren’t they likely to encounter Content Management Systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, Customer Relationship Management, Intranets, etc.? Granted, these aren’t precisely the same think as LMS. But there’s quite a bit of continuity between Drupal, Oracle, Moodle, Sharepoint, and Salesforce.

    1. The H5P format is open and the tools for creating H5P content are open source. This guarantees that creatives own their own content and are not locked into the fate and licensing regime of a specific tool. Read more about how H5P ensures that the content remains yours in our blog.
    1. JavaScript widgets create simple graphs to quickly and concisely display activity by exhibit and by student

      Wonder if these were custom-made or if they relate to other initiatives.

    1. Any questionable or surprise patterns might deserve an extra look or perhaps a redesign in how that material is presented.

    1. applying networkand content analyses

      I came across this article while doing research for last week’s blog. I know this is not a straight forward SNA article, but I found it very interesting since it is a combination of SNA and content analysis. Considering this week’s readings on different data collection method, I found their approach of collecting data from Twitter very unique. In this context, content analysis refers to analyzing tweets and their content. Recently, content analysis is being used in various fields. Even social researchers are taking this opportunity of exploring already existing data. Do you think you can use the combination of both SNA and content analysis in your own research field?

    1. “The notion that adaptive technology is the reason why one school should choose one company’s content over OER (open educational resources) or other options” has become a staple of many publisher’s marketing claims, says Trace Urdan, an education market analyst.

    1. LMSs limit the visibility of copyrighted course content to only course participants for the duration that they need it. (Of course, this would become a moot point if using openly licensed OERs.)
