Techknowledge: Move over textbooks, students opt for apps, e-learning Convincing parents is not an easy task. 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. Techknowledge: Move over textbooks, students opt for apps, e-learning

Leerbeleving Leerbeleving DIY (Do It Yourself) Learning Design for Onboarding: Engaging, Effective & Cheap! Dit jaar mocht ik weer een sessie verzorgen en ook deze keer vroegen ze of ik het over zelfgeorganiseerd leren wilde hebben. Als didactische werkvorm koos ik voor een ‘60 Minute Design session’ (zie hieronder). Een hele uitdaging want als je veel uit handen geeft in een sessie dan is het ook onzeker wat de uitkomst gaat worden maar dat is het hele idee van DIY Learning. De opdracht was dat ze werken op Learning Department van Disney en ze moeten een onboarding ontwerp maken (inwerktraject nieuwe medewerkers) waarbij DIY Learning principes als uitgangspunt dienen. De principes van DIY Learning heb ik vorig jaar uitgewerkt met Hans de Zwart en via een website gedeeld.

Scientists Study Lowering Of Drinking Age - Science Videos 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. 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. However, the estimated mass of the observed debris doesn’t match up to the comet’s bulk before it cracked up. Scientists Study Lowering Of Drinking Age - Science Videos

Hypermedia is as vast as the oceans are deep. 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. Position Paper--Introduction (hypermedia5420) Position Paper--Introduction (hypermedia5420)
The condition or experience that we know of as hypermedia can be favorabley compared to that of water. Aqua, H2O, or ice cold or tepid, water is necessary to all forms of life, just as our existence is dependent and enhanced on the acquisition and organization of knowledge, or data. Water begins in the heavens, and when atmospheric conditions are ideal, it falls to earth as unique six-sided flakes that allow them selves to combine to form a common, interlocking blanket of white that can stretch from where your feet touch the ground to the distant horizon, or long frozen glacier or mountain slope. Each particle has an individual mass, which always stays constant. hypermedia5420myintro (hypermedia5420) hypermedia5420myintro (hypermedia5420)

Computers & Graphics : Interfaces to hypermedia: Communicating t Computers & Graphics : Interfaces to hypermedia: Communicating t In this paper the hypermedia paradigm is discussed from the viewpoint of user interfaces. The problems of interacting with vast hypermedia structures are presented. First, the attention is drawn to the presentation of the information structures in multi and hypermedia application interfaces.
Sifting through the vastness of the Internet can be made easier, Sifting through the vastness of the Internet can be made easier, Searching for information on the Internet is fast, easy and comprehensive -- and maddeningly frustrating when a simple query yields literally millions of responses. Look for "Canada" on the Lycos.com site, for example, and you'll get slightly more than 15 million Web links. Google.com will give you 33 million links. Ugh.
Top to bottom team work « TeacherParentLearningCommunity One thing that is certain that in addition to lots of things that are going right with our education system the things that are going wrong get way more attention. Leaders lead, followers follow and the people in the middle make sure that things get done. With the ebb and flow of education being a constant, the resignation, removal of Michelle Rhee illustrates that education policies are whimsical.

A conceptual microwave-propelled lightcraft receives microwave beams from an array of microwave sources on the ground. (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 Beaming Rockets into Space
Mary Gallagher recently received an e-mail from the Metropolitan Tucson Convention & Visitors Bureau offering “hot deals.” 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. That didn’t sit well with Gallagher, a travel writer, who said she receives enough deals each day. “How much Facebook and Twitter drivel could you spend each day reading?” she said. “This really, really annoys me.” Are travelers overloaded by social media? - todaytravel - TODAYshow.com
