Académie de la Guadeloupe C'EST PAS SORCIER L'EMISSION Le magazine de la science et de la découverte est diffusé sur France 3 depuis 1994. À bord de leur camion-laboratoire, Frédéric, Jamy et Sabine ont parcouru 312 000 kms, soit près de 8 fois le tour de la Terre, pour réaliser plus de 400 émissions. Ils nous emmènent vers des sites insolites et souvent spectaculaires pour nous expliquer le monde qui nous entoure. Technologie, sciences, écologie, nature, histoire, géographie, vie de tous les jours, les émissions traitent de sujets très variés avec un indéniable talent de vulgarisation.

Brain Scans Show The Real Impact Love Has On A Child’s Brain by Editor You comfort them over a skinned knee in the playground, and coax them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. But being a nurturing mother is not just about emotional care – it pays dividends by determining the size of your child’s brain, scientists say. Cahiers Interactifs En science et en géographie/histoire, il est très facile et amusant de travailler à l’aide de cahier interactifs avec les élèves. En effet, la prise de notes étant un processus long et parfois pénible pour nos élèves en difficulté, l’option de feuille à découper, à plier et à compléter les motive au plus haut point.

What Inquiry is NOT "Science class should make students think: Our students aren't being allowed to discover the joys of experimenting, and learning on their own." hits the nail on the head, and is the reason I'm such a huge supporter of students conducting their own independent research projects. (See STEM Student Research Handbook.) Ironically enough however, if I had read this article while I was still a full-time classroom teacher, I would have defended myself saying that I worked tirelessly to help students enjoy science. Why Schools Need to Bring Back Shop Class Sir Ken Robinson, Ph.D, is the author of Creative Schools, The Element, Finding Your Element and Out of Our Minds. The Education Committee of the US Senate is currently considering the re-authorization of No Child Left Behind. Much of the original rhetoric in NCLB was about improving job readiness and employability. In a tragic irony, the focus of the last ten years has not been on improving vocational programs at all but on testing narrow academic standards. Overall, the impact on students, schools and employability has been baleful.

The Challenges and Realities of Inquiry-Based Learning Inquiry Learning Teaching Strategies Getty By Thom Markham Teachers in a rural southeast Michigan high school were recently discussing the odd behavior of the senior class. It seems the 12th graders were acting more civilly toward the junior class in the hallways. The prom was also quieter and more well-mannered than in previous years.

The Natural Teacher: 10 Ways You Can Add Vitamin "N" to the Classroom & Beyond Not long ago I met some dedicated young women who were doing their student teaching at an impressive nature-based preschool. They made it clear that they’d love to pursue careers at similar schools. But they were discouraged about the prospects. Some study that I used to know: What do you remember from high school? Author Note: This is the first YouTube video I've tried "flipping" into a TEDed lesson, as I work to learn how to make best use of the new TEDed platform for making videos into interactive lessons. I'd welcome encouragement, feedback and questions from others trying it out.~~~An idea for an extension project:Goyte's song, "Somebody I used to Know" has been covered and parodied by several other artists.

Science Teaching Junkie: Clearest Way to Teach Moon Phases...EVER! This moon phase board was fairly easy to make. After making a run to the Dollar Tree and rummaging through our science storeroom to collect the needed supplies to make this, it was pretty inexpensive and so worth every penny! Essentially, this Moon Phase board allows students to visualize and better understand the cause of moon phases and comprehend the 2 different views that are often given on a diagram (view from space and view from the Earth). Up to this point, I've done a Lunar Lollipop Investigation, which I thought was great, but this beats it by a long shot! A large majority of my students don't really understand why the lit part of the moon doesn't face the sun on part of the view as seen from Earth on every moon phase diagram (see below).
