Social Bookmarking Links help spread the Word about Science Education and Science Literacy. What are these Links?

Recently more readers are using social bookmarking links, like the ones found in the share in the left hand column of this blog, and the result is that more new visitors are coming to this web page. I thank you all for that. The traffic to this science literacy blog is steadily growing, though I don't think there is enough traffic to make a movie like the one Julie and Julia. One never knows, however. (Are you smiling? I am.)

Share, "Read about it: International Science Literacy and Education "

Follow DrJ_onTwitt on Twitter WANT TO LINK TO THIS PAGE? The HTML code to copy and paste is under the link. Just copy the link ("Copy Link Location")and paste it where you want it: Read about it: International Science Literacy and Education

Though its use is increasingly frequent, I believe social bookmarking is still a mystery for many. I have elected to include a link to an article that explains the phenomenon that is, "social bookmarking." Here it is:

Included in the article are the following links and additional information on social bookmarking:

Language-in-Education Policy Making in the Philippine ... By joepadre
Multilingual Education/Philippines -
There is a need for Congress to formulate a 21st Century
Philippine language-in-education policy that elicits the
best educational outcome for Filipinos to become
life-long learners and
critical thinkers
who can collaborate with one
another to address the problems of national development.

(Again, the emphasis is Dr. J's.)

Here's another quote from the same article:

Our present language policy is flawed as it rejects the use in school of the first language of children which is a chronic source of weakness plaguing Philippine Education. Students fail to understand their teacher and their school lesson because the language in school is one they can hardly speak or understand.

Perhaps areas where there are many immigrants, Boston, for example, could take notice of schools in the Philipines where they speak 170 languages. ("The Philippines is a multilingual nation with more than 170 languages. "_)
