Enseñando a mis alumnos a hacerse preguntas La importancia de enseñar a nuestros alumnos a hacerse preguntas queda muy bien resumida en la siguiente cita de Neil Postman: "Una vez que hayas aprendido a hacer preguntas –preguntas pertinentes y apropiadas y sustanciales- habrás aprendido cómo aprender y nadie podrá impedir que aprendas lo que tú quieras o lo que necesites saber".Desarrollar en nuestros alumnos la capacidad de hacerse preguntas no es fácil y requiere de mucha práctica, por lo que debemos llevar al aula con más frecuencia actividades destinadas a este fin. Las rutinas de pensamiento son un valioso instrumento para ello y pueden ser utilizadas en una gran variedad de contextos lo que facilita su integración curricular. Hoy queremos compartir con vosotros una propuesta de trabajo para desarrollar en los alumnos la capacidad de formularse preguntas utilizando la rutina PIENSO-ME INTERESA-INVESTIGO. ¿Qué crees que sabes sobre este tema? ¿Qué preguntas o inquietudes tienes sobre este tema?

Business Hangouts – How to run PowerPoint in a Window, Not Full Screen, for screen sharing This issue is not directly related to Business Hangouts but most presenters have faced it one day. The problem is the following: When you want to share your screen, especially when you have only one monitor, you want to view your audience and your slides at the same time. Sometimes there are even some other activities running on your screen during your BHOA, such as your twitter feed, a private chat, etc. So you don’t want to use PowerPoint in a full screen mode. By default the presentation mode, which allows the animations to run, launches the viewer in full screen mode.

Google Maps Launch Google MapsLaunch Maps in LUNA Browser The over 120 historical maps in the Google Maps have been selected by David Rumsey from his collection of more than 150,000 historical maps; in addition, there are a few maps from collections with which he collaborates. These maps can also be seen in the Gallery layer of Google Earth, Rumsey Historical Maps layer, and in the Google Earth viewers on this website. All the maps contain rich information about the past and represent a sampling of time periods (1680 to 1930), scales, and cartographic art, resulting in visual history stories that only old maps can tell. Each map has been georeferenced, thus creating unique digital map images that allow the old maps to appear in their correct places on the modern globe. The original historical maps are first made into digital images by scanning them with high resolution digital cameras.

The French Revolution In 1774 the king of France Louis XV passed away.

ScienceHistorian cracks "the Plato code" 28 Jun 2010 A science historian at The University of Manchester has cracked “The Plato Code” – the long disputed secret messages hidden in the great philosopher’s writings. Plato was the Einstein of Greece’s Golden Age and his work founded Western culture and science. Dr Jay Kennedy’s findings are set to revolutionise the history of the origins of Western thought. Dr Kennedy, whose findings are published in the leading US journal Apeiron, reveals that Plato used a regular pattern of symbols, inherited from the ancient followers of Pythagoras, to give his books a musical structure. A century earlier, Pythagoras had declared that the planets and stars made an inaudible music, a ‘harmony of the spheres’.

Ancient Greek Science and Technology Somebody who only reads newspapers and at best books of contemporary authors looks to me like an extremely near-sighted person who scorns eyeglasses. He is completely dependent on the prejudices and fashions of his times, since he never gets to see or hear anything else. And what a person thinks on his own without being stimulated by the thoughts and experiences of other people is even in the best case rather paltry and monotonous. There are only a few enlightened people with a lucid mind and style and with good taste within a century. What has been preserved of their work belongs among the most precious possessions of mankind. We owe it to a few writers of antiquity (Plato, Aristotle, etc.) that the people in the Middle Ages could slowly extricate themselves from the superstitions and ignorance that had darkened life for more than half a millennium.
