    For anyone teaching about migration, development, political sciences, or current issues in general, I think a great story that is gaining traction this year is China's growing involvement in Africa- over 160 billion worth of trade this year and over one million Chinese immigrants living there now. I've developed a little debate activity around some fascinating resources I've found, including a Fresh Air Podcast, articles from the Economist, and photojournalism from Time (links below). Anyone have other compelling resources about this phenomenon?
    • McKenzie先生 - Hi Mr Carlson, There is a recent BBC article that I had my grade 10s discuss which shows that China is now number 3 in arms exporting behind...drumroll.....USA and Russia. we look at the political, economic ramifications of such a list. http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-31901493
      There is no doubt the Middle Kingdom is making huge inroads into all avenues of the global stage.

    • Anne Lewis - Since my "class" is the world (I work at a science center) one of the best ways is to share social media updates. National Geographic Educators actually has great resources for this.
      If I were a classroom teacher with a class blog, I would include NatGeo and other science/current event thought leader social media streams in my announcement section.

    I just got this book: Field Notes on Science & Nature and I'm loving it. http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9...

    I am a firm believer in the value of nature journaling, both as an academic and personal exercise. This is one of those books that you read not because it's part of an assigned PD reading list but for the sheer joy of learning how to get better at keeping a field notebook.

    Can't wait to report back with more in depth review.

    I'm looking for a small Grade 8 class to discuss current events with here on Edmodo. I only have 30 Grade 8 students who are from all around the world so, that's the magic number I'm looking for. If you're interested please let me know!
    • White女士 - Hello Mr. McQuaid. I teach a grade 8 class in ABerdeen, SK Canada and have 30 students. We have an edmodo group called "Grade 8 international" where classes from USA, Norway and Guadalupe contribute to sharing reactions to posts we (the American teacher and I) post each week. Would you be interested in joining in the fun?

    • McQuaid先生 - Mrs.White, Yes! I would love that, could you send me the info darren@kkfs.org with the group code?

    This State of the Map conference on Open Mapping (http://stateofthemap.us/) looked interesting. I plan on following the Twitter account and live tweeters.

    Live tweeting is a great way to follow conferences that you have an interest in but cannot attend. I'll be honest, it's a skill I don't have. It's also a great way to find people to follow on Twitter and build your network.

    Mr. Epstein, I don't know if there is a youth/student track but I think it's something you should look into. You do a lot of interesting things with your students and the open source mapmakers need to hear from users.
