Teaching the teachers TO THE 11- and 12-year-olds in his maths class, Jimmy Cavanagh seems like a born teacher. He is warm but firm. His voice is strong. Correct answers make him smile. The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality Editor's Note: On the heels of our viral posts in over 100 countries about the flipped classroom earlier this year (links below), we asked Jon Bergmann if he could share some of the feedback he was receiving in light of the notable interest about this topic. The timing couldn't have been more perfect since he was about to leave for a conference about you-guessed-it, the flipped class. Here is Part 1 of our three part series The Daily Riff. See Part 2 and 3 links below. - C.J. Westerberg The Flipped Class: What it is and What it is Not
9 Video Tips for a Better Flipped Classroom Flipped Classroom | November 2013 Digital Edition 9 Video Tips for a Better Flipped Classroom Early adopters share how schools can find success with teachers and students alike--even when the technology seems as topsy-turvy as the lessons. In 2007, when Colorado high school teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began experimenting with recording their lectures in order to spend class time on deeper face-to-face learning with students, they probably didn't foresee the major movement that would grow up around what came to be called the flipped classroom. But six years later, the growth in interest remains exponential, suggesting this is far more than a fad.
Arts Céramiques Jour - Huile Spot et fourrure de lièvre Glaçures: Démystifier un émail céramique classique Espresso Cup (detail), porcelain with John’s SG-12, then Hamada Rust over it, fired to cone 10 in oxidation, 2011. Variations in pattern can be acheived by adjusting the thickness of the undercoat (SG-12) and overcoat (Hamada Rust). To achieve the oil spot effect you must first apply the glaze very thick (¼–3?8 of an inch) and then fire it in oxidation to cone 10 or higher (though it can be done at cone 6, which we’ll get to later). The glaze will bubble vigorously as the iron thermally reduces.
10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom 10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom by Mike Acedo Many of us can recall instances in our lives where we found ourselves idly sitting in a classroom, eyes glazed over, half listening to our teacher as they lectured in front of the room. These scenes are all too familiar in today’s schools, as the traditional model of learning has primarily revolved around a teacher-centered classroom, where instructors focus on conveying information, assigning work, and leaving it to the students to master the material. Though effective for some, this type of instruction has forced students to be merely receptors of information, rather than participants in their own learning processes through active learning.
Of productivity in France and in Germany Partager cet article At the start of 2017, with the elections in France in the Spring and then in Germany in the Autumn, it may prove useful to return to one of the fundamental issues which plagues discussion at European level, that is the alleged economic asymmetry between Germany with its reputation as prosperous and France which is described as on the decline. I use the term ‘alleged’ because, as we shall see, the level of productivity of the German and French economies – as measured in terms of GDP per hour worked, which is by far most relevant indicator of economic performance – is almost identical. Furthermore it is at the highest world level, demonstrating incidentally that the European social model has a bright future, despite what the Brexiters and Trumpers of every hue might think.
CTE - Active Learning Research suggests that audience attention in lectures starts to wane every 10-20 minutes. Incorporating active learning techniques once or twice during a 50-minute class (twice to or thrice for a 75-minute class) will encourage student engagement.

Worldwide hemisphere-dependent lean in Cook pines - Johns - 2017 - Ecology Under most conditions, trees grow vertically in response to the opposing influences of light and gravity (Wyatt and Kiss 2013). In challenging environments, where competition for light or mechanical stress is intense, trees may grow non-vertically (Loehle 1986). Here we describe a novel hemisphere-dependent leaning habit in Araucaria columnaris (Cook pine) (J.R. Forst.), a widely cultivated conifer endemic to New Caledonia. Specifically, in a large sample of individuals from around the world, we demonstrate that the Cook pines’ lean is non-random: trees in the northern hemisphere lean south, and those in the southern hemisphere lean north.
