Digital Library for Earth System Education Climate Change and Colorado's Future Climate change is real and it is occurring faster than originally predicted. In this video series, scientists explain how climate change is affecting the state of Colorado, while citizens share stories and solutions. One of the more recent videos features an interview with University of Colorado Boulder Professor Emeritus Al Bartlett on the "arithmetic of growth". A set of problem-based model lessons were developed by teams of middle and high school teachers with CU-Boulder scientists and science educators. Also available are the Colorado Science Standards for Climate and Energy.

Biology Archives - Science Sparks Playing Detective – add some science to role play This post is all about adding a bit of science sparkle to role play, the activities should hopefully add a simulating and educational twist to an already fun game. My little boy is usually a bit reluctant to play role play games, but generally if I add in a task or some props he is much more enthusiastic. Here are just a few of our favourite ideas. Make a disguise/camouflage Where are you playing? Read More Why do plants need water? A few days ago we noticed that one of our little pumpkin plants on the window sill had wilted. Challenge and Discover – Water Science This month, Inspiration Laboratories and I are challenging you to create a fun water experiment. Growing Microorganisms – Dirty Potatoes Welcome to more Spectacular Summer Science, today we’re growing microorganisms Following on from our hand washing exercise last week we tried another related activity.

Welcome to Ask a Biologist | Ask A Biologist Coke & Som Smith Photography & Travelogue Frozen Planet: Explore the polar regions Click on the image below to start exploring the Arctic and Antarctic. You can access geographic information provided by Arctic and Antarctic experts, watch videos of the wildlife in each region, and see important historical events as people explore the polar regions.

BBC Nature - Adaptations and behaviours Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms Glossary Home | Text Version Designed to help learners at any level better understand genetic terms Guided by national science standards Explained by scientists at the NIH The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) created the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms to help everyone understand the terms and concepts used in genetic research. In addition to definitions, specialists in the field of genetics share their descriptions of terms, and many terms include images, animation and links to related terms. Enter a search term or explore the list of terms by selecting a letter from the alphabet on the left and then select from the terms revealed. The Talking Glossary At the bottom of most pages in the Talking Glossary are links to help you get the most out of this glossary.

Taxonomía de Bloom para la era digital. Concepto y herramientas La taxonomía cognitiva de Bloom, para aquellos que no lo sepáis, clasifica las operaciones cognitivas en seis niveles de complejidad crecientes (recordar, entender, aplicar, analizar, evaluar y crear). Esta teoría permite conocer y desarrollar diferentes procesos educativos para llegar a lo más alto de la pirámide (crear). Con la taxonomía podemos saber las capacidades adquiridas por nuestros alumnos (por ejemplo, para que un alumno sea capaz de aplicar conceptos, ha de poseer las habilidades inferiores: recordar y entender). Con las TIC, se han dado algunos efectos sobre esa taxonomía, que ha obligado a introducirlas como vemos en el siguiente gráfico, tomado de Eduteka (ver documento íntegro), realizado en base a la traducción del material que Andrew Churches tiene colgado en su wiki, la adaptación de la taxonomía original a la era digital (en nuestro caso, al uso de las TIC de forma masiva en el aula). Docente desconcertado que intenta encontrar su lugar en un mundo que no entiende.

Välkommen till SvampGuiden - allt om svamp och svampar Classify It! App You can use this app to help build on your students' understanding of the classification of organisms. It would be a good way to help students understand that many kinds of organisms can be sorted into groups in many ways using various features to decide which organisms belong to which group. The app also helps demonstrate how classification systems are frameworks used by biologists and demonstrates how living organisms can be classified in a variety of ways. Since playing through the app can be time consuming, one way to use it would be to divide your students into groups and have each group play through a mode. You also can make use of the Creature Cards that students can earn while playing the game.
