The digital humanities is as much about reading humanities texts with digital tools as it is about using human tools to read digital text. We are better users of technology when we are thinking critically about the nature and effects of that technology. What we must do is work to encourage students and ourselves to think critically about new tools (and, more importantly, the tools we already use). Far too much work in educational technology start...

In this free-wheeling discussion at TED Global in October 2014, Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard talked with journalist and writer Pico Iyer about how to spend time meaningfully.

An American Opium Wedding

From dealing opium to bootleg liquor to the War on Drugs, American politics have an interesting history.

Excerpt from The Imperial Cruise: A Secret History of Empire and War by James Bradley.

"Eleanor wore a pearl necklace and diamonds in her hair, gifts from Franklin's rich Delano relatives. Even though Franklin had never made much money himself, Teddy knew that he would be able to care for his new wife: FDR was heir to the huge Delano opium fortune.
 
"Franklin's grandfather Warren Delano had for years skulked around [China's] Pearl River Delta dealing drugs. Delano had run offices in Canton and Hong Kong. During business hours, Chinese criminals would pay him cash and receive an opium chit. At night, Scrambling Crabs -- long, sleek, heavily armed crafts -- rowed out into the Pearl River Delta to Delano's floating warehouses, where they received their Jesus opium under the cover of darkness. The profits were enormous, and at his death Delano left his daughter Sara a fortune that she lavished on her only son.
 
"The Delanos were not alone. Many of New England's great families made their fortunes dealing drugs in China. The Cabot family of Boston endowed Harvard with opium money, while Yale's famous Skull and Bones society was funded by the biggest American opium dealers of them all-the Russell family. The most famous landmark on the Columbia University campus is the Low Memorial Library, which honors Abiel Low, a New York boy who made it big in the Pearl River Delta and bankrolled the first cable across the Atlantic. Princeton University's first big benefactor, John Green, sold opium in the Pearl River Delta with Warren Delano.

"The list goes on and on: Boston's John Murray Forbes's opium profits financed the career of transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson and bankrolled the Bell Telephone Company. Thomas Perkins founded America's first commercial railroad and funded the Boston Athenaeum. These wealthy and powerful drug­-dealing families combined to create dynasties."

OMG SOOOOO TRUE. I'm so glad as a middle school student that we don't have 90 minute classes! Im starting to think middle school isnt as bad as what high school might be like :/

I can't underscore just how different it really is in Germany. I see six-year kids taking the U-Bahn to school all alone. I was really anxious the first few times I took my pupils to city parks to play.

"They place a high value on independence and responsibility. Those parents at the park weren’t ignoring their children; they were trusting them."

And it works very well. :)

Why I don't grade participation. 
I used to give participation points in class. If a kid was being annoying, I would take off points. If a kid answered questions, I would add a point. I'm pretty sure it was worth ten percent of the grade but it was something I felt like I had to do because it was a practice I had endured as a ...

Is this education?  Is this a system American's want to copy? Don't think so. The Tiger Mom culture is alive in China
Thousands of students travel to Maotanchang to spend 16 hours a day, seven days a week, studying for the biggest test of their lives.
