Facebook Spaces Is Going To Change Education As We Know It - Blog - Teach in VR

Spaces is Facebook's Virtual Reality extension to its social network. It allows users to meet together in fully-immersive virtual environments to share and interact with one another. When Mark Zuckerberg first previewed Spaces to the public last year I knew that it was going to revolutionize the way we think about collaboration and more importantly, education. I understand that at this time the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are fairly expensive investments with limited educationally focused applications.

Even Facebook Spaces isn't built specifically for teaching in VR. About five years ago I had the opportunity to help pilot a videoconferencing distance learning program at a local university in my area. Piloting that videoconferencing lesson was a blast. Enter Facebook Spaces. I do want to be clear about one thing though. MEKANE BUHTLE! TAKO SU ZAMIRISALE KUCOM, TAKO SU MEKANE… PODIJELIMO TAJ OKUS! ~ KOLAČIĆI. Testovi - Filološko. Why should we recycle? Many of us still don't think that we need to recycle or can't be bothered.

Why should we recycle?

Sometimes choosing the correct bin to put our rubbish in and emptying them feels like too much effort. Realistically, separating our rubbish is not that difficult and only takes a few minutes of our time. In some countries people receive money for items that they recycle, mainly plastic and glass bottles. Encouraging recycling through enabling people to earn money has raised awareness of the importance of recycling and people doing this often want to recycle other items.

What we can recycle varies in different places. Sometimes it is hard to understand why recycling helps the earth. The saddest part is that most affected areas are the underdeveloped countries in the global south who don't have enough money or resources to waste like we do and therefore they don't largely contribute to global warming.

English language teaching (ELT) is not. It is an umbrella term that is used to describe a range of activities, some of which are industries, and some of which (such as English teaching in high schools around the world) might better be described as public services.

Watch Sherlock - Season 4 For Free On Debate: Cosmetic surgery - Debatepedia. Will plastic surgery make you happier? Studies of plastic and cosmetic surgery have had mixed results over whether such surgery makes people happy.

Will plastic surgery make you happier?

Professor Charlotte Markey reports in a new study that there’s no conclusive data that cosmetic surgery makes people happier, although it does create repeat customers. What is known is that cosmetic surgery can have side effects – severe pain, disliking the results, and, occasionally, death, to name just a few. Some people are happy with their cosmetic surgery, others are disappointed, and some die from it.

Results of studies of plastic and cosmetic surgery A recent study by husband-and-wife team Professors Patrick and Charlotte Markey examined how a TV show on cosmetic surgery affected people’s opinions about these procedures. Nearly 200 adults, with an average age of 20, watched either an ‘extreme makeover’ program about cosmetic surgery or a home improvement show. Plastic surgery: Beauty or beast? Before the makeover, DeLisa Stiles--a therapist and captain in the Army Reserves--complained of looking too masculine.

Plastic surgery: Beauty or beast?

But on Fox's reality TV makeover show, "The Swan 2," she morphed into a beauty queen after a slew of plastic surgery procedures--a brow lift, lower eye lift, mid-face lift, fat transfer to her lips and cheek folds, laser treatments for aging skin, tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction of her inner thighs and dental procedures. The Fox show gives contestants plastic surgery and then has them compete in a beauty pageant, which last year Stiles won. "The Swan" and other such plastic-surgery shows, including ABC's "Extreme Makeover" and MTV's "I Want a Famous Face," are gaining steam, but some psychologists are concerned about the psychological impact on those who undergo such drastic cosmetic surgery--and also on those who don't and may feel inadequate as a result.

", "What are you doing there under the desk? " Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic] When using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom’s devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies. The Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy verbs in this handy infographic apply specifically to each stage of the taxonomy.

They progress from LOTS (lower-order thinking skills) to the HOTS (higher-order thinking skills). According to Churches on his wiki Edorigami, “Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies …” This means the verbs listed below are applicable to facilitating technology use in the modern classrooms.

Each of the Scandinavian countries has proudly advertised initiatives to boost their renewable energy-generating capacity, and now Scotland is about to follow suit: its government has declared that it has approved the construction of the U.K.’s first floating offshore wind farm. Not only that, but it’ll be the biggest in the world. The new development, called Hywind, is to be installed 25 kilometers (16 miles) off Scotland’s easternmost point by the Norwegian energy company Statoil. Five enormous floating turbines will be able to produce 135-gigawatt hours of electricity each year, roughly enough to power 20,000 homes, which will be transported via anchored undersea cables to the Scottish mainland.
