Tiko is the $179 “unibody” 3D printer you’ve always wanted This 3D printer is setting a new standard for design and price. Given the rise of the Maker Movement, it’s not unusual to hear about a new 3D printer making its debut on Kickstarter. However, when that 3D printer aspires to change up the game, it’s certainly worth noting.

Creativity—It’s our future Share this Episode Please select a language: Autoplay The very brief history of Computer Science — History of Computer Science 1900s In the early 1900s, Bertrand Russell invented type theory to avoid paradoxes in a variety of formal logics. He proposed this theory when he discovered that Gottlob Frege’s version of naive set theory afflicted with Russell’s paradox. Russell proposed a solution that avoids Russell’s paradox by first creating a hierarchy of types, then assigning each mathematical entity to a type. After Russell came the amazing Alonzo Church who introduced Lambda calculus to the world.

Teaching and Learning Resources / Andragogy Just as there is no one theory that explains how humans learn, no single theory of adult learning has emerged to unify the field. The best known theory of adult learning is Knowles’ andragogy. As a teacher, writer, and leader in the field of adult education, Knowles was an innovator, responding to the needs of the field as he perceived them and, as such, he was a key figure in the growth and practice of adult education throughout the Western world. However, as many critics have noted, both his theory and practice embodied his own value system. It is, as Knowles noted, a set of assumptions providing one piece of the adult learning puzzle.

Theatre Based Wellbeing Learning Theatre removes us from our ‘everyday’ and transports us to a place guided by the actors we are watching. While confronting and challenging us to imagine a new world, our minds are open to new thoughts and information. Few other platforms provide such a rich environment for conscious and unconscious learning; in our experience, this form of engagement is one of our most powerful tools in delivering important wellbeing messages.

8 Myths That Undermine Educational Effectiveness Certain widely-shared myths and lies about education are destructive for all of us as educators, and destructive for our educational institutions. This is the subject of 50 Myths & Lies That Threaten America’s Public Schools: The Real Crisis in Education, a new book by David Berliner and Gene Glass, two of the country’s most highly respected educational researchers. Although the book deserves to be read in its entirety, I want to focus on eight of the myths that I think are relevant to most teachers, administrators, and parents. Myth #1: Teachers Are the Most Important Influence on a Child’s Education You only need 3 things to be creative According to Teresa Amabile, you ‘only’ need three ingredients to be creative: source: Teresa Amabile 'How to Kill Creativity' KnowledgeToolsMotivation Great, you say, I know quite a few things, I have some tools in my shed and I am motivated to bits.

Abstract Types with Isomorphic Types Here’s a cute little example of programming in HoTT that I worked out for a recent talk. Abstract Types One of the main ideas used to structure large programs is abstract types. You give a specification for a component, and then you divide your program into two parts, the client and the implementation. In the latter, you implement the component with some concrete code that satisfies the specification. kolb's learning styles, experiential learning theory, kolb's learning styles inventory and diagram home » leadership/management » kolb learning styles David Kolb's learning styles model and experiential learning theory (ELT) Having developed the model over many years prior, David Kolb published his learning styles model in 1984.

Very true Teresa, I work at UC Davis, and my job is to work with content and add visuals to make it more understandable and interesting to the students. Nutrition 10, taught by Dr. Liz Applegate is a great example of this. by rangerralph Mar 31

Well that is in the US. course they always say it's because of lack of money. Well when I was in school they did not supply football uniforms the mothers of the players had to make them. So where is the money going. I will not ever vote for more money for any schools unless they learn how to spend it first. by timepeaces Mar 29

I love RSA Animate. This one is very interesting to me because I would love to see vast changes in the way children are thought, unfortunately, the testing industry that has cropped up in the United States in the wake of "No Child Left Behind" is unlikely to end its choke hold on schools and teachers anytime soon. by teresaoliver Mar 28
