Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms One of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what “flipped learning” is. Over the past few years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. Dr. It’s our opinion that one of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what Flipped Learning is. Dr.

Science Toys Science toys help kids become interested in science, while also being a source of entertainment. They can plant the seeds for future scientific exploration and even a career in the sciences. In addition to being very educational, the right toy can mesmerize a child for hours as they learn how it works and figure out the nuances of its operation. It can definitely help give them that all important head start in school as they begin their studies in science. Science based toys are a great way to teach kids about basic scientific principles. Fortunately, I have done much of the investigative work for you and have made available many different toy listings at your finger tips. The science toys listed here are primarily physics based and altogether they enable kids of all ages to learn a lot about physics. I chose science toys which readily show a specific physical process, or processes, at work. Balancing Bird A plastic bird that is balanced by its beak (Main Concept: Center of gravity) Prism
Science definition - What is science? Science Definition The word science comes from the Latin "scientia," meaning knowledge. How do we define science? According to Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, the definition of science is "knowledge attained through study or practice," or "knowledge covering general truths of the operation of general laws, esp. as obtained and tested through scientific method [and] concerned with the physical world." What does that really mean? Science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge. The term science also refers to the organized body of knowledge people have gained using that system. The Science Store - Find fun and educational toys and gifts for kids, teens and adults. What is the purpose of science? Most scientific investigations use some form of the scientific method. Science as defined above is sometimes called pure science to differentiate it from applied science, which is the application of research to human needs.

Ending the 'tyranny of the lecture' Harvard professor Eric Mazur reveals how he uses peer instruction to make learning more dynamic—and how new software can facilitate this process By Dennis Pierce, Editor Read more by Dennis Pierce July 27th, 2011 Students need to assimilate information before they can apply it to a different context, Mazur said. At an educational technology conference in Boston July 27, Harvard University physics professor Eric Mazur explained how he uses “peer instruction” to help his students engage in deeper learning than traditional lectures can provide—and he unveiled a brand-new ed-tech service that can help educators take this concept to a whole new level. Mazur used a simple experiment to drive home his point that lecturing is an outdated—and largely ineffective—strategy for imparting knowledge. While the responses from the crowd varied—some cited practice or experience, while others said trial and error—no one answered “lecture,” Mazur noted wryly.
Scientists discover brain chemical that eases the pain of financial loss By Daily Mail Reporters Updated: 02:12 GMT, 22 February 2012 Scientists have found that a chemical in the brain allows people to brush off the pain of financial losses. The breakthrough discovery could pave the way to the development of drugs to treat problem gamblers. The chemical is active in the region of the brain involved in sensory and reward systems and its existence sheds light on what may have been going on in the brains of Wall Street and City of London traders as the 2008 financial crisis took hold. Addiction: The chemical could pave the way to the development of drugs to treat problem gamblers Details of the study were reviewed and published in the Molecular Psychiatry journal on Tuesday. Editor Julio Licinio said: 'Pathological gambling that happens at regular casinos is bad enough, but I think it’s also happening a lot now at Casino Wall Street and Casino City of London. 'Many people have a predisposure to make certain kinds of decisions.' High levels?
Ten Recent Advances in Evolution By Carl Zimmer Posted 10.26.09 NOVA To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species, here's a list—by no means exhaustive—of some of the biggest advances in evolutionary biology over the past decade. These advances include not just a better understanding of how this or that group of species first evolved, but insights into the evolutionary process itself. In some cases those insights would have given Darwin himself a pleasant jolt of surprise. Ten significant leaps forward in evolution research in the past decade, as chosen and described by noted science writer Carl Zimmer Enlarge Photo credit: (Earth) © NASA; (text) © WGBH Educational Foundation Darwin envisioned natural selection acting so slowly that its effects would be imperceptible in a human lifetime. If he were alive today, Darwin would be astonished at the pace and nature of discoveries being made in evolutionary biology, including the witnessing of evolution in action.
