Learning is Not a Mechanism

“The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility.” ~ bell hooks, Teaching to Transgress Digital pedagogy is not equivalent to teachers using digital tools. Rather, digital pedagogy demands that we think critically about our tools, demands that we reflect actively upon our own practice. So, digital pedagogy means not just drinking the Kool-Aid, but putting the Kool-Aid under a microscope. When I lead workshops for teachers interested in developing digital skills, I say right up front that I have little interest in teaching teachers or learners how to use the technologies they’ll use in classrooms for the next three years. 24 Pins on physics, app and spacecraft.

‘Print this Map. Get off the Internet. Take to the Streets': 5 of the Left’s Best Mapping Moments

In the final days of the Paris Commune the military advances of the Versailles army were mapped on a daily basis as the revolutionaries sought to keep them at bay. Fast forward nearly 100 years and the Situationists were once again mapping Paris in altogether more abstract ways – this time to resist the advances of the modern city. Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? For nearly a century, “reality” has been a murky concept.

Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time?

The laws of quantum physics seem to suggest that particles spend much of their time in a ghostly state, lacking even basic properties such as a definite location and instead existing everywhere and nowhere at once. Only when a particle is measured does it suddenly materialize, appearing to pick its position as if by a roll of the dice. This idea that nature is inherently probabilistic — that particles have no hard properties, only likelihoods, until they are observed — is directly implied by the standard equations of quantum mechanics. Take the active learning challenge.

Active Learning Leads to Higher Grades and Fewer Failing Students in Science, Math, and Engineering. The Four Important Models of Blended Learning Teachers Should Know about. April 28, 2014 In its basic and simplest definition, blended learning is an instructional methodology, a teaching and learning approach that combines face-to-face classroom methods with computer mediated activities to deliver instruction.

The Four Important Models of Blended Learning Teachers Should Know about

The strengths of this instructional approach is its combination of both face to face and online teaching methods into one integrated instructional approach. Blended Learning is a big concept, an umbrella term, that contains several other sub-methods. Below are the four models that are most used in schools today.The definitions together with the accompanying videos featured here are taken from Blended Learning 101 course.

Throwback Thursday: The greatest unsolved problem in theoretical physics (Synopsis) “Science enhances the moral value of life, because it furthers a love of truth and reverence — love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being.”

-Max Planck When it comes to our Universe, you might think we understand it pretty well. We have a full list of particles we know to exist, we understand the forces that describe their behavior, and we’ve been able to detect and measure each and every interaction between them.

Create a Badge with Google Drawing

From Google Drive create a Google Drawing. Use the File menu to choose “Page setup…” Choose “Custom” for the drawing size and choose 300 by 300 pixels. Hold down shift to draw a perfect circle. Make sure the circle fills the canvas. Make the border of the badge size 8 pixels. Use Control C to copy the circle and Control V to paste the circle (Command C and Command V on a Mac). Change the fill of the 2nd circle to transparent.
