Bugscope: Project Overview

An ESEM is an Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope that is similar to, and often operates as, a traditional scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM is an exciting complement to the more well-known light microscopy that many experience in school. The most obvious benefit of SEM over light microscopy is that it can achieve more than 100 times greater magnification. The interaction of electrons with samples is vastly different than light, which means you don't see color, transparent objects are opaque, and surface features are rendered in incredible detail.

Compared to light microscopy, electron microscopes are larger, more complicated, require more maintenence and most of all are more expensive. Bugscope is an educational outreach project that was created in 1999 and continues with support from the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Apprendre à apprendre. Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms. One of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what “flipped learning” is.

Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms

Over the past few years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. Dr. Eric Mazur of Harvard University has been researching this type of learning since the early ’90s, and other educators have been applying pieces of the Flipped Learning method for even longer.

TIC et pédagogie inversée. Le concept de pédagogie inversée est de plus en plus populaire actuellement même si cette approche est loin d'être novatrice, comme on le constate dans ce billet d'eSchoolNews consacré au flipped learning.

TIC et pédagogie inversée

Un certain nombre de contributions en ligne s'en font néanmoins l'écho depuis le début de l'année 2012. Qu'est-ce que la pédagogie inversée ? Pour reprendre la définition de ZoneTIC, la pédagogie inversée est "une stratégie d’enseignement où la partie magistrale du cours est donnée à faire en devoir, à la maison, alors que les traditionnels devoirs, donc les travaux, problèmes et autres activités, sont réalisés en classe".

Why Is the Research on Learning Styles Still Being Dismissed by Some Learning Leaders and Practitioners? I have been battling the notion of "designing instruction for learning styles" in my own quixotic fashion for a couple of decades now.

Why Is the Research on Learning Styles Still Being Dismissed by Some Learning Leaders and Practitioners?

In my attempt to be a good steward of my clients' shareholders' equity I wished to help them avoid faddish instructional design practices that have been disproven by empirical research. I first learned back in the 1980s at NSPI (now ISPI) conferences that while self-reported learning style preferences do exist, that designing instruction to accommodate them has no basis. When I posted yet again on this topic on my blog a couple of months ago and then sent a Tweet out about it—Jane Bozarth, EIC of this magazine, invited me to publish an article.

I accepted and decided to reach out to the usual suspects, those in my professional crowd who know the research, for their inputs. As I am but a practitioner attempting to follow what I have learned over the years about the research, I am not steeped in that research and able to cite it, they can. From Richard E.

They settled in what is now the state of Virginia and called their colony first James Fort, and then James Towne, in honor of James I, the King of England. The early years of the colony were nearly a total disaster. Almost half of the settlers died due to poor choices in settlement location, management of resources, and quarrels with the indigenous Powhatan Indians.
