Flickr: Corey Leopold Inspired by Sandy Speicher’s vision of the designed school day of the future, reader Shelly Blake-Plock shared his own predictions of that ideal day. How close are we to this? The post was written in December 2009, and Blake-Plock says he’s seeing some of these already beginning to come to fruition. [Update: I asked Blake-Plock to respond to comments to this post. Read it here.] By Shelly Blake-Plock 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. Read more in the School Day of the Future series. Related

100 Coolest Science Experiments on YouTube - X-Ray Technician Schools Although YouTube has something of a reputation as a repository for the inane mental diarrhea of stunted man-children injuring each other for cheap laughs or shrill teenage drama queens shrieking like harpies over the latest bland, interchangeable lump passing as the epitome of masculine beauty, many others thankfully take advantage of its services as a portal to share their knowledge and educate viewers. While few of the scientific offerings formally follow the scientific method or test an explicitly stated hypothesis, even those videos veering more towards demonstrating various principles, theories, and laws still offer visitors a chance to learn something about how the world around them operates. By this point, it should go without saying that many of the following videos contain procedures that may be dangerous to perform at home or without the proper equipment and/or training. Please do not duplicate any of these experiments unless assured that they are entirely safe for amateurs.

A better question: Why don’t they understand what you’ve taught? A better question still: Why don’t students understand and use what they’ve been taught to create a better world? Lessons In Creative Workspaces From A Startup In An Italian Villa Dan Hill is the CEO of company whose workspace is so beautiful that it "might just break the internet through its sheer brazen beauty": a 17th-century villa near Treviso, Italy. The space is an "incredible gift" to Fabrica from its parent company, Benetton, Hill says, one that they feel fortunate to have, and, as well, a smidgen awestruck. For a company that's hacking hardware and making physical prototypes, however, all those clean lines get a little claustrophobic. The building isn't the stage-set for creativity, he says, but a part of the toolkit. We need to get messy.

3 Big Don’ts When Converting Instructor-Led Training to eLearning With benefits like automation, consistent messaging, wider reach, and the ability to provide 24/7 learning, eLearning is an option that more and more companies have started to embrace. But now what do you do with those PowerPoint slides that you created ages ago and had been delivering to your employees since then? If that training program is effective, don’t ditch it.

But look out for these common mistakes that companies do when converting PowerPoint and Instructor-Led Training to eLearning because they don’t realize that eLearning and classroom learning are different: 1.

The Third Teacher: from classrooms to learning ecologies - Education Today “Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.” Introduction The opening voice over from Gene Roddenberry’s 1960 science fiction classic Star Trek set in the 23rd Century is a nice juxtaposition with the Reggio Emilia’s organisation of the physical environment in education, often referred to as the child’s “third teacher”. The Reggio approach places a great deal of importance in the belief that children can best create meaning and make sense of their world through environments which support complex, varied, sustained, and changing relationships between people, the world of experience, ideas and the many ways of expressing ideas.
