Good at games: mobile learning proves a hit in schools | Classroom innovation Play school: Oakdale school in east London has harnessed children's love of games to make learning fun. © Zak Waters Today's teachers can be split into two groups: those who confiscate gadgets and those who give them out. Mobile phones, palmtop computers, flip video cameras – even games consoles – have all become part of the classroom furniture in recent years and are helping to establish mobile learning as a teaching method in its own right. One such convert to the educational qualities of mobile devices is Dawn Hallybone, an ICT subject leader and year 6 teacher at Oakdale junior school in Redbridge, east London. Oakdale is a progressive school. At lunchtime, the year 6 pupils operate the school reception, answering the phone and greeting visitors. The school has 350 children and 30 Nintendo DS Lites. It is a form of learning by stealth, says Hallybone. "You might show them a picture and point out something that's really nice. But there are less prosaic reasons, too.

Wanted: Garbage collectors in space Space Debris Space Debris2 Every messy kid gets told to clean up his or her room. City governments send out trucks and crews to clean up roads and parks. A sprawling garbage heap floats high above Earth. In a recent study, engineer Hugh Lewis and his colleagues from the University of Southampton in England ran some calculations on space junk. If a broken or defunct satellite doesn’t fall back toward Earth and burn up in the atmosphere, it continues to whiz around our planet. In February 2009, a Russian satellite and a U.S. satellite plowed into each other over northern Siberia. In March of this year, scientists saw that the International Space Station was headed toward a four-inch piece of space garbage left over from the 2009 collision. Another situation, related to greenhouse gas emissions, is lengthening how long any piece of space trash remains in orbit. As things in orbit push through Earth’s atmosphere, they slow down. Right now, the risk of a serious collision is low.

50 Ways to Use Twitter in the Classroom Many critics of Twitter believe that the 140-character microblog offered by the ubiquitous social network can do little for the education industry. They are wrong. K-12 teachers have taken advantage of Twitter’s format to keep their classes engaged and up-to-date on the latest technologies. The following projects provide you and your students with 50 ways to Twitter in the classroom to create important and lasting lessons. 1. One of the simplest ways that teachers can use Twitter in the classroom involves setting up a feed dedicated exclusively to due dates, tests or quizzes. 2. Subscribe to different mainstream and independent news feeds with different biases as a way to compare and contrast how different perspectives interpret current events and issues. 3. Set up an interesting assignment requesting that students set up Twitter for education lists following feeds relevant to their career goals and keep a daily journal on any trends that crop up along the way. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

BBC Space – Explore the planets, black holes, stars and more Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar. Using the tour There is a comprehensive tour which goes through the workings of the reactor, starting from a consumer of electrical energy and working backwards to the reactor core itself. You can restart the tour at any time using the button at the top left of the screen. Hint numbers Each part of the simulation has a hint number that you can click to see a description of its function. The skill test Once you're familiar with how to use the reactor you can see whether you can control the reactor so that the power output matches the demand from the city.

The Complete Guide To Twitter Hashtags For Education What is a hashtag? 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. See also 50 Of The Best Education Accounts On Twitter Who can use hashtags? Anyone. What else do I need to know? Don’t hashtag spam–if your tweet doesn’t add to that hashtag’s topic, discussion, or user base, don’t add the hashtag.Use more than one hashtag if it applies to more than one topic, but choose wisely. Meeting Times Many of the hashtags have “meeting times” where educators agree to “meet and tweet”–that is, send out messages on a topic at a certain time on a certain day. If you do participate at the agreed upon time, you’ll see the tweets stream in live and participate in said conversation (via twitter) in what is nearly real-time.

The Earth and Beyond Welcome to The Earth and Beyond Hello, my name is Tim O'Brien. I'm an astronomer working at The University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory. As an astronomer my job is to try and understand how the universe works and my main interest is why some stars explode - more about this later! I also get to visit lots of schools and share amazing facts with children and teachers about the Sun, Earth and Moon, the stars and planets, and the Universe as we know it! Exploding stars You may know the names of some patterns of stars (called constellations) such as Orion or the Great Bear. This picture shows Orion the Hunter and Taurus the Bull with the position of an exploded star known as the Crab Nebula. We're all made of stars Understanding why stars explode is very important because most of the chemical elements (carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and so on) were made inside stars and are spread out into space when they explode. Learn about astronomy Good luck with your studies!

PowerUp Game Story If any one out there is listening, Planet Helios is being destroyed and we need your help! Hundreds of years ago the nations of our planet realized that the side effects from burning fossil fuels for energy were damaging the atmosphere and changing the climate. They joined together to develop and build technologies to create electricity from available renewable energy resources like wind, sun and water power. Meanwhile the planet's citizens–our ancestors– pulled together and pledged to use less energy. This ushered in a Golden Age of energy balance and ecological harmony. But a few generations later energy was plentiful, clean and cheap and conservation was no longer in fashion. Now the damage has been re–done, and then some! Play PowerUp today and prove it's NOT too late!
