The World According to Monsanto There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it – it's strategic. It's more powerful than bombs. 400 Free Online Courses from Top Universities Get 1200 free online courses from the world’s leading universities — Stanford, Yale, MIT, Harvard, Berkeley, Oxford and more.

To: @lehmanmatt - what subject matter in relationship to technology and are you looking for text, tutorial, testing, audio, video or all of the above? But, let me know if you have a particular area within technology and when I'm searching will make sure to look for that matter and post. by peggymiles May 14

New friends/&/or curators here (name du jour- smiles!) - is there a way to merge two teams pearltrees? We have team folks here and then another peartree wants to team up. I've added that pearltree under "free education" For free education I'll design (as I have time - week+) more appropriate icon (ideas???) Thanks for the suggestions and the links. As there are some blogs or education news sites to string off a pearl that provide information on new programs. I'm challenged on how to organize pearls that are "topical" or date sensitive as someone coming in may want the latest learning info. I'm probably complicating things, and shouldn't worry, but when I search on pearltrees, still stumped at trying to find the 'latest' pearls posted on 'breaking news/information' & sometimes end up on pearls that are years old. I guess that's the net. Just thinking out loud - learning and I am not sure of the etiquette here... :) by peggymiles May 14

To: Komox37 - no problem about certification or not! I understand fully and do agree, just had mentioned that since someone else I knew who was looking thought it had value for them, but I agree on any educational materials and it would be great to have your resources and your experience to the mix and team! I'm still learning how to do this - so pardon any 'wrong turns' on my part! Cheers and thanks Peggy by peggymiles May 14

Hey matt, check out this pearl tree i've been working on. Some different applications of ed tech, as well as the twitter from the college course I took, as well as some examples of tools you'll find if you exhaust the links. are you a teacher? by jjs08d May 13

I'm looking for educational technology pearls and online tutorials that show how to do technology stuff. by lehmanmatt May 13

I was mainly concentraiting on Higer Education Video lecture series available free. But High school level is also important. May be we can connect the two trees under a common node called Online Education. My tree is still in growing stage. Right now only Physics branch has a resonable number of pearls. by indiajoe May 13

I think that is great idea indiajoe. Do you have a structure ready? I've got something similar happening but it is more to do with high school subjects that I teach, so it follows the Australian curriculum more or less. I'd be interested in teaming up to help out. by allanquartz May 13

My main aim is to make a pearl tree of all available video lectures _catagarised by subject_, rather than their uploading websites. I found many websites giving list of online learning webpages, but if somebody wants to learn a particular topic, they will have to go thorugh each of the website recursively. That's why i thought a pearl tree catagarising individual lectures based on subject will be a perfect solution for this. by indiajoe May 12

Hello Peggymiles on the youtube the following channels might be of your interest bozemanbiology, clindelof, covenantbird, crashcourse, EEVblog, jeriellsworth, NurdRage, mabakken :D.

I'm trying to find all the academic opportunities for free learning, especially that integrate audio and video and possibly live webcasting, streaming both on the Internet nad mobile. So I'm interested in the Khan and MIT and Stanford programs,and heard in the past of a recent program for certification that was free at - so it appears the issue is getting certification, and of course, the biggger univiersities have to balance their online offerings so that the students paying a lot of money and are at the uiversity do not feel that the online folks are getting a better deal, depending on whether or not the costs are the same. I understand the value of being there, so it will be interesting to read strong feelings on both sides. I added an education program to my crowdsourcing pearl, and my pearls are a bit disorganized so I'll try to figure out the best organization. If anyone wants to team up on a free education pearl, I"m all in! I'll start one now. by peggymiles May 11

The "practice" feature used with Google/Facebook login is a really great way for students to work through different areas of maths at their own pace and in their own way and keep track of (and show their teachers) how they're progressing. by gormcc May 1
