Especially when it means buying "time wasting elements" as opposed to those that can help build-up a report card. For Karan Wadhwan, a Class VII student of The Lawrence School, Sanawar, it meant hours of grilling, umpteen calls to teachers and friends and a live demonstration to convince his mother to get him an internet connection and an Apple iPhone. "I had to prove how online lessons assisted in studies and iPhone applications helped me revise," he says, thinking of November 2010, when he and his brother Kunal, a Class III student of Ryan International School, took to supplementing alternate forms of learning with classroom teaching. There on, he subscribed to applications like BrainPop, SAT Vacab Challenge and Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards on his phone ¿ among others. This, he says, created instant interest in spheres that always seemed complicated. ChinaCast Education Reports Director Purchase of 400,000 Shares.

Hubble Space Telescope — Astronomers analyzing debris from a comet that broke apart last summer spied pieces as small as smoke-sized particles and as large as football-field-sized fragments.

Scientists Study Lowering Of Drinking Age - Science Videos

But it’s the material they didn’t see that has aroused their curiosity. Tracking the doomed comet, named C/1999 S4 (LINEAR), NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 found tiny particles that made up the 62,000-mile-long (100,000-kilometer-long) dust tail and 16 large fragments, some as wide as 330 feet (100 meters). Hubble detected the small particles in the dust tail because, together, they occupy a large surface area, which makes them stand out in reflected sunlight.

Introduction (hypermedia5420)

It touches us each and every day. We, the consumers of media crave it. We seek it sources, we strive to catalog and to organize it into lumps we can use and manipulate at will. Tributaries that begin as small streams on the snow covered mountains flow past us the same way as images stream to us by way of the Internet. The flow overcomes obstacles and can not be denied on the journey to the sea.

Beaming Rockets into Space

(Kevin Parkin) NASA is conducting a study to examine the possibility of using beamed energy propulsion for space launches. A beamed thermal propulsion system would involve focusing microwave or laser beams on a heat exchanger aboard the rocket. The heat exchanger would transfer the radiation’s energy to the liquid propellant, most likely hydrogen, converting it into a hot gas that is pushed out of the nozzle. The smallest real laser launch system would have 25 to 100 megawatts of power while a microwave system would have 100 to 200 megawatts In the near term, beamed energy propulsion would be useful for putting microsatellites into low Earth orbit, for altitude changes or for slowing down spacecraft as they descend to Earth.

But there was a catch: In order to receive them, she had to follow Tucson’s tourist authority on Twitter and friend it on Facebook.

Assessing Online Textual Feedback to Support Student Intrinsic Motivation Using a Collaborative Text-based Dialogue System: A Qualitative Study. Abstract This paper assesses textual feedback to support student intrinsic motivation using a collaborative text-based dialogue system.

Assessing Online Textual Feedback to Support Student Intrinsic Motivation Using a Collaborative Text-based Dialogue System: A Qualitative Study

A research model is presented based on research into intrinsic motivation, and the specific construct of feedback provides a framework for the model. A qualitative research methodology is used to validate the model. Results from the study indicate that online textual feedback was strongly supported compared to feedback in a human face-to-face setting. Hypermedia: In the classroom.
