The Resurgence of Flipped Learning Chat « Chantellemorrison's Blog I’ve noticed a revival of the ‘Flipped Learning’ edchat lately. Having trialled Flipped Learning (AKA Pre-learning*) for nearly 12 months, I thought it would be helpful to share what I’ve gleaned through the process. I’ll do this over a series of 3 blogs; the first blog will focus on how to find appropriate resources and then distribute these resources in a helpful, meaningful way. Before embarking on a flipped learning program, it’s most crucial to decide on your goal for flipped learning. Is it an adjunct to a current homework program?
Interactive Lesson Calculating The Odds of Intelligent Alien Life Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them — yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science." Visit the SETI Institute online to learn more about their work, the scientists on their team and the intiatives they are spearheading in the search for extraterrestrial life. Explore the SETI@home project, which harnesses the power of home computers around the world to aid in the search for alien life.
