|Slate Senior Editor Dahlia Lithwick joins Coy Barefoot on WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now to discuss a recent article she wrote on the decline of American support for the death penalty – except on the Supreme Court. She also talks about other legal news, including the Anne Nicole Smith case and the Jose Padilla competency hearings.
|Allison Hantschel is a blogger and author who posts to the site First Draft. She has a new book called Special Plans: The Blogs & the Faulty Intelligence That Led To War. The book traces the story of Douglas Feith, a key figure in President Bush’s Defense Department in the run-up to the Iraq War. He ran the Office of Special Plans, which was created to collect intelligence on the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.”What Douglas Feith was doing was taking reports from Iraqi defectors who were questionable,” she says. “For example, we were fed a bunch of lines about mobile biological weapons laboratories that were terribly dangerous and could strike us from anywhere. And the main source for that allegation turned out to be an alcoholic cousin to an aid to Ahmed Chalabi.” She adds that Chalabi later turned out to be also shown as less than reliable.

When two students perform the same academic task, the patterns of activity in their brains are as unique as their fingerprints.

One way to approach technology integration is to begin with an educational problem and explore how different tools might contribute to a solution. No greater challenge today facing classroom teachers than the increasing diversity of learners in the classroom. Neuroscience increasingly illuminates how students differ in their learning styles and preferences at the neurological level – and this difference at the individual level is a daunting hurtle to face.
In this show, the GenTech boys consider the three main principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and how technology might address them.
