The Secret of Secrets - Tunnels in Bucegi mountains displaying our true history discovered in 2003 The Secret of Secrets – Tunnels in Bucegi mountains displaying our true history discovered in 2003 In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind. Since the declassification of the new ground-penetrating radar 2 years ago, the most staggering data has emerged of complex and labyrinthine underground systems in various parts of the world. At places like Guatemala in the South Americas, tunnels have been mapped under the Mayan pyramid complex at Tikal, which extend a full 800 kilometres to the opposite side of the country. It was using this very technology that the most remarkable discovery was made. The discovery in RomaniaColossal diplomatic pressures came from the United States of America and the Vatican on the Romanian Government to not disclose to the whole world this discovery and so it led to a temporary agreement between the Vatican, USA and Romania.

7 Kompetenzen, die wir brauchen werden, um in einer Welt der ständigen Veränderung klarzukommen [Kolumne] Sturheit und Veränderungsresistenz? Keine guten Kompetenzen Seit fünf Jahrzehnten verändert Moore’s Law unsere Welt in einem atemberaubenden Tempo. Die stetige Vervielfachung der IT-Rechenleistung bei gleichzeitiger Effizienzsteigerung und Verkleinerung der Komponenten führt zu einem sich unaufhörlich beschleunigenden Wandel dessen, was technisch machbar ist. Das nächste große Ding ist schon übermorgen wieder überholt. Die Auswirkungen auf Wirtschaft, Politik und das soziale Miteinander sind weitreichend – und selbst auf kurze Sicht immer schwerer zu prognostizieren. „Für Sturheit und Veränderungs-Resistenz wird es auf Dauer keine Belohnungen geben Für Menschen bedeutet das eine permanente Unsicherheit darüber, was in zehn, fünf oder selbst nur in zwei Jahren geschieht. Man muss die ständige Erwartung von Veränderung und den daraus resultierenden Druck, sich permanent auf neue Rahmenbedingungen einzustellen, nicht mögen. 1. Der wohl offensichtlichste Punkte auf dieser Liste. 2. 3. 4. 5.

How Should We Measure Student Learning? 5 Keys to Comprehensive Assessment Linda: The United States is at a moment where it could really transform its assessment systems. Most of our testing is multiple choice tests, pick one answer out of five, which is something you will never do in applying knowledge in the real world. Our assessments need to evolve to reflect the skills and knowledge that we actually value and that we need schools to teach and our children to learn. Human beings are naturally learners. Chinasa: I kind of like, I want like a goal in my head about what to do with information that I get. Erin: I look at the beginning of the year and I say, what are the big ideas that I want students to know in the whole year and what are the major skills I want them to be able to do? Linda: Assessment should occur early and often and throughout the process. Lisa: I do a lot of formative assessments, so formative assessments meaning, it's not summative, it's not a test at the end of the week or the end of a unit. Teacher: How do you know that? Students: Tips.

danooct1 The long awaited video of CIH trashing a standalone PC's BIOS and rendering the computer unable to boot. This video comes fourteen years to the day after CIH first unleashed its devastating payload upon the world. When CIH infects files, it checks to see whether there are enough gaps to completely store its code, rather than simply writing its code to the end of the file and increasing file size. On April 26th (in the original variant), CIH activates, overwriting part of the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and overwriting the first megabyte of all hard disks in an endless loop, causing the computer to crash. I realize RogueAmp does have a video of CIH doing this same thing, but now there is a video of it activating in HD and with narration, which I feel is invaluable to the whole experience. Shoutout to my friend Wes (somefellow12345) who left one of the most amusing YouTube comments I've ever read on my old CIH video (which was done using a virtual machine).

3 Classroom Tools to Measure Student Learning Formative assessment is vital to teachers in any classroom environment. Teachers have been formatively assessing students for years, because we must know what our students know in order to help them understand what they do not know. Do you know what I mean?! Fortunately, many classrooms are charging into the 21st century with technology initiatives. Whether your technology program has created a 1:1 environment, a BYOD system, or you have access to only a few devices in your classroom, these three tech tools will help you engage your students while simultaneously gauging their understanding of concepts. Kahoot! Kahoot! When ready to begin the game, the teacher simply posts the game pin on the whiteboard. We've used Kahoot! Formative As its name implies, Formative, is another wonderful formative assessment tool. Teachers can assign these assessments by sending students a link or creating classrooms through a process nearly identical to that of a learning management system. Padlet
