Teaching the teachers TO THE 11- and 12-year-olds in his maths class, Jimmy Cavanagh seems like a born teacher. He is warm but firm. His voice is strong. Correct answers make him smile. And yet it is not his pep that explains why his pupils at North Star Academy in Newark, New Jersey, can expect to go to university, despite 80% of their families needing help to pay for school meals.

10 Big Concerns About Tablets In The Classroom As we look into integrating tablets in the classroom, it’s becoming increasingly clear that buying tablets for the purpose of enhancing learning is very different to buying tablets for recreational purposes such as browsing Facebook and entertainment sites, or even for more serious pursuits such as business or work. Parents and teachers need to consider a myriad of issues specific to young people. But are these concerns warranted? The so-called generational “digital divide” (parents and teachers being largely digital immigrants, and kids being digital natives) can lead to unexamined assumptions about how kids will use (or misuse) mobile technology. For example, did you know that the idea of kids becoming addicted to tablets is actually a myth?

Of productivity in France and in Germany Partager cet article At the start of 2017, with the elections in France in the Spring and then in Germany in the Autumn, it may prove useful to return to one of the fundamental issues which plagues discussion at European level, that is the alleged economic asymmetry between Germany with its reputation as prosperous and France which is described as on the decline. I use the term ‘alleged’ because, as we shall see, the level of productivity of the German and French economies – as measured in terms of GDP per hour worked, which is by far most relevant indicator of economic performance – is almost identical. Furthermore it is at the highest world level, demonstrating incidentally that the European social model has a bright future, despite what the Brexiters and Trumpers of every hue might think. Let’s start with the most striking fact.

How to flip the classroom using game-based learning Paul Rogers, award-winning author of Little Bridge, explains how game-based learning helps teachers and students prepare for more productive and effective lessons. Join his webinar on 25 February 2016. Effective learning happens when you are fully involved in what you are doing. Similarly, when you want to get the most out of reading a book or watching a film, giving it your full attention makes all the difference. But when you are learning, this is even more important, because the activity is not just receptive, but makes all kinds of demands on your memory and your understanding.
Active Learning How to create an active classroom experience with technology. GUEST COLUMN | by Jessica Sanders The traditional teaching method of giving a lesson at the front of the class puts you, the teacher, in an active position but leaves students in a passive role, where they are taught to but don’t interact with the material as much they should. In fact, Edudemic reported that teachers do 80 percent of the talking in class. This format can quickly cause students to become bored and disengaged—students that aren’t engaged have a higher rate of failing. When you use technology, however, the classroom becomes an active space, where you can interact with students and be more hands on.

Worldwide hemisphere-dependent lean in Cook pines - Johns - 2017 - Ecology Under most conditions, trees grow vertically in response to the opposing influences of light and gravity (Wyatt and Kiss 2013). In challenging environments, where competition for light or mechanical stress is intense, trees may grow non-vertically (Loehle 1986). Here we describe a novel hemisphere-dependent leaning habit in Araucaria columnaris (Cook pine) (J.R. Forst.), a widely cultivated conifer endemic to New Caledonia. Specifically, in a large sample of individuals from around the world, we demonstrate that the Cook pines’ lean is non-random: trees in the northern hemisphere lean south, and those in the southern hemisphere lean north. Additionally, the magnitude of the lean is more pronounced at higher latitudes in both hemispheres.
16 of the Best Blended Learning Resources In February 2014, Edreform.com published a paper on digital and blended learning that points out over “68 percent of parents support digital learning” and “digital learning has tri-partisan support, with 61 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of Independents, and 67 percent of Democrats in favor.” Such strong support may make blended learning the future standard for education. How can you make blended learning a success in your school or classroom? The following resources explore the topic from various angles.
