Selfie This EFL lesson plan is designed around a short film by Matthew Frost starring Kirsten Dunst, and the theme of celebrity selfies. Students discuss meeting famous people, roleplay meeting their hero or heroine, watch a short film and discuss selfies and celebrity selfies. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Language level: Intermediate (B1) – Advanced (C1) Learner type: Teens and adults Time: 90 minutes Activity: Speaking, performing a roleplay, watching a short film, Topic: Selfies, meeting famous people and modern society Language: Questions Materials: Short film Downloadable materials: selfie lesson instructions Support Film English Film English remains ad-free and takes many hours a month to research and write, and hundreds of dollars to sustain. Step 1 Ask your students the following question: Have you ever met a famous person? Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6

But I am le tired... Looking at new ways to learn math, science | One way to learn projective geometry is to sit in a classroom and memorize Whitehead’s axiom and ternary relations. Another is to go out on a wide swath of grass and use Alberti’s window to study giant parabolas. The latter is the manner preferred by Ricardo Nemirovsky, a professor of mathematics education at San Diego State University and director of the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education, a joint program involving SDSU and the University of California San Diego. About the program The Mathematics and Science Education Ph.D. program operated jointly by SDSU and UCSD. • Began in 1993 • Currently 16 students: 14 math education & 2 science education • Research intensive, full-time program • Admissions requirements: master’s degree in math, biology, or physics or master’s degree in math education and with math courses during Ph.D. • Interdisciplinary program of study • Stipends for 2011-12 are $20,000 plus tuition at both campuses is covered.

Maps with Street View Alright everyone. Despite my complete melt-down further up in this comments thread, I need to put something out there. Disclosure first: although I have access to certain sources, I (and my business) am independent of Google but have direct dealings with Google. I have NDAs that prohibit me from disclosing certain things. August didn't go according to plan, completely. YouTube was very quick to adopt 360° video but YouTube is comparatively MUCH smaller than Google Maps and incorporating 360° video didn't require a major overhaul because it's still a niche and people are more forgiving of products that serve a niche. 360° photography, on the other hand, has moved from niche to mainstream and made the Street View brand (when tied directly and only to Maps) irrelevant very quickly. Transparency is crucial to Google's success. I think that's about it for now, believe me when I say that I'm not happy with the execution of this AT ALL.

Pharrell Williams - Happy Boy (2010) Khan Academy Graphing Inequalities « Zero-Knowledge Proofs November 3, 2011 by John Scammell Last week, I mentioned to a group of teachers that I had never come up with a good way to teach kids where to shade when graphing an inequality. Vicky from one of our local high schools shared her method with me. It’s pretty nice. Vicky gives her students an inequality like She asks them to each find two coordinates that satisfy the inequality, and then plot them on a giant grid at the front of the room. From this graph, it becomes pretty obvious that there is a line involved, and which side of the line we should shade. We could extend this method to quadratic inequalities. , we could ask students to find ordered pairs that satisfy the inequality, and plot them on a grid at the front. Students could then have conversations about which of the shading should include the boundary, and which should not, and how to deal with that. Like this: Like Loading...

About the GIS Day Mission | GIS Day - November 14, 2012 GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. The first formal GIS Day took place in 1999. Esri president and co-founder Jack Dangermond credits Ralph Nader with being the person who inspired the creation of GIS Day. He considered GIS Day a good initiative for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS. GIS Day is One Fun Day to Celebrate GIS with everyone Discover and explore the benefits of GIS Showcase the uses of GIS Build and nurture your GIS community Future Dates 2014 – Wednesday, November 19, 20142015 – Wednesday, November 18, 20152016 – Wednesday, November 16, 20162017 – Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Wheel of Concept Math tips from Maths Insider photo © 2007 Herman Yung | more info (via: Wylio) Perfect hair, perfect teeth, perfect nails, perfect parents. Pah! There’s no such thing! As much as you try to be the perfect parent and raise the perfect child, you’ll always fall short! If you want advice on how to get your child to go to bed early; get them to watch less TV; always tell the truth or call if they’re going to be late; then you’ve come to the wrong website! However, if you want advice on how to correct some common mistakes in relation to your child’s maths learning, then read on (and worry about the early bedtime tomorrow!) Are you making these 5 mistakes? 1) Being negative about maths Do you hate math? Don’t say:“I was no good at math, It’s too hard-go ask your mum/dad.”Instead say:“Math can be hard but let’s see if we can work this out together first before asking for help” 2) Not praising every maths achievement If your kid finds maths easy, we often take their maths ability for granted and fail to praise them.
