Teaching as a dynamic activity Pseudoteaching was a concept I have understood and been wary of for a long time. However, only recently was I able to put a name to the phenomena thanks to a conversation I had with Frank Noschese. This post is one of several being written about the notion of pseudoteaching today.

A word or phrase preceded by a “#.” How do hashtags work? Twitter can be a busy place with lots of tweets–and thus lots of “noise.” A #hashtag is a way to aggregate tweets that are appended with a hashtag. Picture it like a magnet that attracts all messages categorized by that topical word or phrase.

Ideas for learning about forces. Forces are all around us and affect everything we do, with that in mind we’ve put together a collection of ideas for learning about forces with something for everyone from preschoolers to grown ups. Lets start with some basics. What is a force? A force is a push or a pull. Forces can make object moves or stop, speed them up or slow them down. Energy Kids - Electricity The energy sources we use to make electricity can be renewable or non-renewable, but electricity itself is neither renewable nor non-renewable. File Scrub 1 ::::: EE ... electricity_home-basics Electricity Is a Secondary Energy Source Compact fluorescent light bulbs use a fraction of the electricity as incandescent light bulbs to produce the same amount of illumination. Electricity is the flow of electrical power or charge. It is both a basic part of nature and one of our most widely used forms of energy.

PATHWAY: The Pathway to Inquiry Based Science Teaching Teachers are playing a central role in our education system. They are the link between theory and practice and act both as mentors and mediators. As the world is developing rapidly, for students it is important to have a mentor, who provides education that brings knowledge and everyday life together.4 Therefore professional development after preservice teacher education at university becomes extremely important to meet today’s requirements of the European education system. It is further crucial to consistently renew the initial teacher education through in-service training to conform teacher education to the latest educational standards of a rapidly changing world.
