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.

ARKive - Discover the world's most endangered species Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species. Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world. Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. As a small conservation charity, Wildscreen eventually reached the point where it could no longer financially sustain the ongoing costs of keeping Arkive free and online or invest in its much needed development. Therefore, a very hard decision was made to take the website offline in February 2019.

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.

Experience Just How Big the Universe is, in One Mind-Blowing Interactive You need a more recent version of Adobe Flash Player. Recently, NASA scientists combined data from the Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes to discover the most distant galaxy known to date. The galaxy, named Abell2744 Y1, was formed around 13.2 billion years ago when the universe was extremely young. Image: Galaxy cluster Abell2744 obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope (Credit: NASA) But what does that really mean? Most of us have trouble visualizing the height of buildings, or the distance it takes to get home from work, let alone things on an intergalactic scale. Even cooler are the tidbits of information that are provided when you click on an object. 1. This is the smallest unit of scale in the universe. As you can see from the animation it takes a bit of zooming to reach this scale. 2. Fundamental particles such as quarks, neutrinos and the Higgs boson are theoretically point sized. 3. 4. Tres-4 is the second largest planet discovered so far. 5. 6. 7.

Skolprojekt Linné - Berättarteknik Idéhäfte 1 — Berättarteknik Hur kan torra fakta förvandlas till spännande berättelser? I häftet beskrivs en konkret metod för hur elever kan skapa berättelser med ett naturvetenskapligt innehåll genom att skriva, dramatisera och filma. Fakta och begrepp blir medveten kunskap när de fogas in i ett intresseväckande sammanhang. Nedan finns pdf-filer på de olika avsnitten i idéhäftet Berättarteknik, samt kompletterande material i form av exempel och kopieringsunderlag.
