Scholarly Open Access Bealls List: Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers This is a list of questionable, scholarly open-access publishers. We recommend that scholars read the available reviews, assessments and descriptions provided here, and then decide for themselves whether they want to submit articles, serve as editors or on editorial boards. In a few cases, non-open access publishers whose practices match those of predatory publishers have been added to the list as well. The criteria for determining predatory publishers are here. Shakespeare Uncovered Shakespeare Uncovered combines history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis, and the personal passions of its celebrated hosts to tell the stories behind the stories of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. The Series 2 resources (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, and Othello) were created in partnership with the Folger Shakespeare Library. The resources for the first series (Macbeth, the comedies Twelfth Night and As You Like It, Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V, Hamlet and The Tempest ) were created in collaboration with an advisory board comprised of high school educators and Shakespearean scholars.

At-Risk At-Risk is an interactive, game-based simulation that aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in order to reduce the number of students with undetected or untreated conditions. Tailored for use among university faculty and staff, At-Risk addresses the fear and stigma of mental illness that may prevent university faculty and staff from approaching and assisting students exhibiting symptoms of mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide. In the 45-minute simulation, players assume the role of a faculty member who is concerned about five of his students. The player analyzes profiles of these virtual students to identify the three who are at-risk and then engages in simulated conversations with each of them to determine whether and how to refer them to the counseling center. The virtual students are fully animated and possess their own emotional intelligence and memory.

How people argue with research they don’t like By Dylan Matthews By Dylan Matthews September 12, 2013 We at Wonkblog watch (and participate) in a lot of debates about new research. And we'd like to say all those debates adhere to the highest standards of rigor and are motivated by nothing more than a search for truth. In reality, it tends to go more like this: Obviously, these arguments are often correct. Experimental studies really are better than quasi-experimental studies which really are better than regression analyses which are certainly better than nothing. Go-Lab Portal The Go-Lab Portal represents the technical framework of the Go-Lab Project. It offers science teachers and their students the opportunity to conduct personalized scientific experiments with help of numerous innovative teaching tools and resources. The Go-Lab Portal enables school teachers to find appropriate online labs and supportive inquiry learning apps and to assemble the selected tools in customizable Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs) structured according to the phases of the Inquiry Learning Cycle. Furthermore, there is the possibility to adapt already available ILSs according to the teacher’s own lesson plan, and to share the ILSs with the students to be used in the classroom.

hands-on experiments Ciênsação has been developed with the support of UNESCO Brasil to promote a culture of short hands-on experiments and skill-fostering science education. We understand that the pressure of a dense curriculum and the urge to prepare for the next exam leave little time for elaborated experiments. Experienced teachers have therefore compiled this collection of short research activities – taking usually less than 10 minutes to complete – that you can easily integrate into your day-to-day teaching. These student research activities are a bit different from experiments you may find on YouTube or in text books. They are specifically designed to foster skills like analytical thinking and task oriented team work. Each experiment comes with questions that encourage engaging discussions which you can build on in your teaching.
