Nerd Paradise : How to Write a 20 Page Research Paper in Under a Day Posted on: 10 Cado 7:0 - 5.27.29 So you've procrastinated again. You told yourself you wouldn't do this 2 months ago when your professor assigned you this. Pick a Topic The more "legally-oriented" your topic is, the better. Make a list ...of every possible outcome that this issue could cause in...the near future...the far future...of every person that this topic affects....of any instances where this topic has come in the news....what you would do about this topic if you had the chance/power/enough-sugar...any little detail you can think ofThe important thing about this is to think of ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, no matter how silly or far-fetched. Reorder everything Put your most obvious argument first. Then put weird off the wall stuff, regardless of importance. Put the strongest argument for your case next. Now list the incidents that will help argue for your point. Now, list everything that could be construed to be the answer to the question "if elected, what would you do about this issue?"

Flashcard Directory Test Prep Review | Exam Practice for ACCUPLACER, ACT, GED, GMAT, UvT oprichter van Law Schools Global League Op initiatief van de Universiteit van Tilburg en GV Direito Sao Paulo hebben zeventien rechtenfaculteiten uit de hele wereld de Law Schools Global League opgericht. Een internationale samenwerking op het gebied van onderzoek en onderwijs. Voor de UvT sluit dit aan bij de bachelor Global Law die in september 2013 van start gaat. Rechtenstudies zijn van origine veelal gericht op nationaal recht, terwijl de globalisering voor steeds meer grensoverschrijdende vragen zorgt. Tilburg Law School zal zich met de samenwerking meer gaan richten op het opleiden van juristen die internationaal inzetbaar zijn. Decaan Randall Lesaffer zal het eerste jaar van de Law Schools Global League, samen met Oscar Vilhena Vieira van GV Direito Sao Paulo, gaan voorzitten.

International - Helen Gao - The Education System That Pulled China Up May Now Be Holding It Back China wants inventors and entrepreneurs, but its schools, built around the notorious gaokao exam, are still designed to produce cookie-cutter engineers and accountants. A student, studying for the gaokao, naps on a desk during his lunch break in a classroom in Hefei. (Reuters) On the morning of June 7 every year, Beijing's normally chaotic streets fall silent. In many ways, the gaokao is symbolic of China's rise, with millions of Chinese striving and competing to pull up themselves and their nation. In 2010, an international standardized test found that junior high school students in Shanghai had outperformed their peers in rest of the world in math, science, and reading, beating the U.S. averages by a wide margin. They hope to see an educated workforce, rather than toiling on factory floors or sitting in the cubicles of Western companies' Chinese branches, found their own businesses or brands that will sell to domestic as well as international buyers.

Los robots-profesores llegan a la escuela coreana | ReadWriteWeb España Bajitos, rechonchos, con ruedas y con una pantalla para proyectar la cara de la maestra. Así son los robots-profesores que acaban de instalarse en las escuelas surcoreanas. Se llaman “Engkey” y han llegado para promover otra forma de aprender; por el momento, sólo inglés. Este ejercicio supone un paso en la modernización de la sociedad soñado durante décadas, pero en un terreno social como es la educación. En el fondo, puesto que hay profesores humanos detrás de cada robot, por el momento el único efecto real es la deslocalización del trabajo hacia zonas donde los costes laborales son menores. El programa piloto consta de 29 robots que han sido distribuidos en 21 escuelas de la ciudad de Daegu. En Daegu ya han comprobado dos de las ventajas que ofrecen estos robos frente a los profesores tradicionales. Sin embargo, las autoridades aseguran que su objetivo no es sustituir a profesores por máquinas, sino apoyar una industria estratégica clave en el país.

Web literacy: Where the Common Core meets common sense We believe it’s essential for every teacher to develop lessons that challenge students to learn how to verify sources; here’s one example By Alan November and Brian Mull Read more by Contributor May 25th, 2012 “To ensure that students learn the grammar and strategies of the web, we believe it’s essential for every teacher to develop lessons that challenge students to learn how to verify sources,” the authors write. (Editor’s note: This is Part Two of a series of articles on developing web literacy among students. To read Part One, click here.) Are you as worried as we are that the overall impact of technology on our children’s ability to solve complex research problems is negative? Research shows that students primarily use one search engine and then only look at the first page of results. A very depressing view of the state of American students’ approach to internet research comes from a recent op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal.

5 Free Collaborative Whiteboard Apps For the iPad It seems as though the minute the iPad was announced, innumerable light bulbs went off as developers and entrepreneurs everywhere came to the same realization: "We could totally use this device as a digital whiteboard!" Indeed, a search for the word "whiteboard" in the App Store returns a whopping 170 iPad apps. Although the device's 10-inch screen may not compare to a full-sized, physical whiteboard, it can be quite handy to use a virtual whiteboard with team members remotely, and the iPad's form factor suits itself quite well to exactly that. As we mentioned, the App Store is loaded with these kinds of apps, and many of them are quite good. To help narrow things down, we've rounded up five of the best ones, focusing on apps that are either free or have a freemium pay model. SyncSpace Try it out (iTunes link) SyncSpace has all the standard drawing and text editing tools of a digital whiteboard product, but with a few extras thrown in.
