5 Great Science Websites For Kids 1- Science Made FunScience Made Fun wants kids to love science by showing how fun science can be. The site is colorful and makes silly sounds as you move your mouse around the page. Kids can read science trivia, science jokes, and play science games. The site also has just over a dozen experiments that kids can perform in school or at home under the supervision of their parents. The five keys to a great infographic Great infographics don't happen by accident; rather a carefully crafted infographic displays various attributes that contribute to its overall success. I've come up with a simple way to summarize these attributes into what I call CHART: the five keys to a great infographic. The first key is Contrast; Contrast in a design creates tension and displays a clear distinction or difference offering no ambiguity. In graphic design, Contrast can be used to draw a viewer's attention to a specific area. For example, a splash of color amidst the grayscale image, but it's equally important when displaying data. Take for example, a common question that you might find in a survey where respondents are as to provide an answer on a Likert scale.
Feed 101 - FeedBurner Help What are feeds? I see "RSS", "XML", and "Atom" out there, but I don't know how I might use these links when I find them. Feeds are a way for websites large and small to distribute their content well beyond just visitors using browsers. Feeds permit subscription to regular updates, delivered automatically via a web portal, news reader, or in some cases good old email.
DocsTeach Turn your students into historians with primary-source based activities. Provide them the unique web address for an activity, or compile a Classroom full of activities. Each activity-creation tool helps students develop historical thinking skills. Pick documents, set up the activity, and write instructions for your students. How to create a landing page A landing page is a web page that allows you to capture a visitor's information through a lead form. A good landing page will target a particular audience, such as traffic from an email campaign promoting a particular ebook, or visitors who click on a pay-per-click ad promoting your webinar. So it’s important to build a unique landing page for each of the offers you create. You can build landing pages that allow visitors to download your content offers (ebooks, whitepapers, webinars, etc.), or to sign up for offers like free trials or demos of your product.
14 YouTube Math Channels February 10, 2014 Since the posting of "20 Great Math Websites for Teachers and Students", I have received some requests from math teachers asking for websites that provide quality math videos. Upon checking my archive and some other online resources, I deemed it necessary to compile this list of Math YouTube channels to share with you. These are basically channels where you can have access to a wide variety of math videos and tutorials to help your students with Math. I have included only what I believe are the best Math channels out there. Check out this selection and share with your colleagues. Evaluating Information - Citing and Writing Help - SJSU Research Guides at San José State University Library When you search for information, you're going to find lots of it . . . but is it good information? You will have to determine that for yourself, and the CRAAP Test can help. The CRAAP Test is a list of questions to help you evaluate the information you find. Different criteria will be more or less important depending on your situation or need. Key: An asterisk (*) indicates that criterion is for Web sources only Currency: The timeliness of the information.

They force students to see contexts; to make critical decisions about relative importance; to make connections among people, events and movements; to visualize history and processes; to discover patterns and sequences; to examine cause and effect; and to juxtapose content from across disciplines and media. We now have a seriously growing array of tools to help us build timelines with learners to support that kind of mind work. History in Motion: Founder Paul Cashman describes his goals as: to improve the teaching, learning, and experiencing of history for everyone from grade-school students to lifelong learners.to build a Wikipedia-like community of history enthusiasts who create, exchange, and discuss historical scenarios.
Case Studies, Manufacturing In Mexico, Manufacturing Plants In Mexico Monster Cable After working with quality manufacturers in Asia, Monster Cable recognizes that opening a Mexico manufacturing facility with NAPS significantly improves their bottom line – Monster Cable Products was founded in 1979 by Noel Lee, then a laser-fusion engineer at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Lee was an audiophile and professional drummer who set out to improve audio quality by developing high performance speaker cables. Lee developed a better construction for cables that would expand the clarity, dynamics and power of audio signals.
The 25 Must Have Resources for Science Teachers Here is what I have been preparing for you over this weekend. Below is a list featuring some great resources for science teachers. These resources provide a wide variety of materials for teaching science from lesson plans, printables, activities, technology resources and many more. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Information Visualization Evaluation - WikiViz Evaluations of Information Visualization is one of the hottest topic of the field. Several visualization tools have been developed recently, but little effort has been made to evaluate the effectiveness and utility of the tools. Evaluation criteria Clustering Engine Carrot2 Search Results Clustering Engine Carrot2 organizes your search results into topics. With an instant overview of what's available, you will quickly find what you're looking for.
Interactive Excel Spreadsheets Developer's Guide to Excelets: Dynamic and Interactive Visualization with "Javaless" Applets or Interactive Excel Spreadsheets Excelets are interactive Excel spreadsheets or simulations of mathematical models. The user changes a variable and the spreadsheet changes in numerical, graphical, and/or even symbolic form (equations). Through the use of numerical experimentation and "what if" scenarios, we have a powerful learning tool for students using readily available off-the-shelf software.
