Media Art Net | Davies, Charlotte: Osmose Charlotte Davies«Osmose» If in virtual environments during the first years of Virtual Art one often witnessed the use of gateways that caused abrupt crossovers, what one experiences in the image spaces of «Osmose» are osmotic crossovers from one sphere of images to the next, always aware of how an old sphere deteriorates and then amalgamates with a newer one. This, of course, entails calculating both image spaces at exactly the same time. [...] Two worlds of text parenthetically accompany this simulacrum of nature: on the one side, the 20,000 lines of the programming code that produces the work, which in the artificial world arranges itself to an enormous column awaiting inspection. On the other side, there is a room filled with fragments of texts, focussed on expressions that appear in the study of nature, technology and the body. The huge programming code fails to substantially lessen the overwhelming impression. (cf.

The Standards Building on the best of existing state standards, the Common Core State Standards provide clear and consistent learning goals to help prepare students for college, career, and life. The standards clearly demonstrate what students are expected to learn at each grade level, so that every parent and teacher can understand and support their learning. The standards are: Research and evidence basedClear, understandable, and consistentAligned with college and career expectationsBased on rigorous content and the application of knowledge through higher-order thinking skillsBuilt upon the strengths and lessons of current state standardsInformed by other top-performing countries to prepare all students for success in our global economy and society According to the best available evidence, the mastery of each standard is essential for success in college, career, and life in today’s global economy. For grades K-8, grade-by-grade standards exist in English language arts/literacy and mathematics.

The full publication can be found at: Download PDF of this article What the Research Says About Immersion by Tara Williams Fortune Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition University of Minnesota Over nearly half a century, research on language immersion education has heralded benefits such as academic achievement, language and literacy development in two or more languages, and cognitive skills. Benefits of Language Immersion Academic and Educational Without question, the issue investigated most often in research on language immersion education is students' ability to perform academically on standardized tests administered in English. Although the vast majority of TWI research has been carried out in Spanish/English settings, Dr.

A Project-Based Learning Spectrum: 25 Questions To Guide Your PBL Planning A Project-Based Learning Spectrum: 25 Questions To Guide Your PBL Planning by Terry Heick I’ve been talking with a friend recently about project-based learning, which is leading to a TeachThought Project-Based Learning framework hopefully sometime next week. (Or whenever I finally get this TeachThought podcast off the ground–maybe Tuesday? Ish?) In the meantime–and in pursuit–I’ve been thinking of the kinds of questions I consider when planning a project–or planning a unit when students plan a project on their own. I’ve more or less organized them into a kind of spectrum, from the simplest questions to consider, to the most complex. What role is the learner assuming?

ThinkBalm: What is immersion?Hypergrid Business According to a new report by analyst firm ThinkBalm, immersiveness is not an all-or-nothing proposition but a continuum. On the low-immersion extreme are virtual worlds with cartoony graphics, static camera angles, no spacial voice, and limited gestures. High-immersive worlds, by comparison, have realistic graphics, customizable avatars, spacial audio and a full range of gestures and animations. An immersive environment can run either in a separate application, or inside a Web browser. The richness of the environment is determined “by the degree to which the user’s senses are engaged, and the desirability and meaningfulness of the activity in which the user is participating,” said Sam Driver and Erica Driver, the authors of the report.

Stuckey in Second: Close Reading with Oreos {by Primary Polka Dots} What a fun day! My team and I heard about this awesome OREO cookie lesson from the third grade teachers at our school and of course, since it involved OREOs, we had to try it!! It was just one of those awesome lessons, better than I thought it would be. It made my whole day! (Even if the kids had been eating Oreos!) For the full lesson, see Lindsay's store at Primary Polka Dots for her Close Reading lessons. Here is how it went in my room today!!! First, I passed out one cookie to each student. After some weird looks from the kids (Did I mention this was at 9:45 in the morning?) Obviously, their responses were Oreo cookie, oreo, and one kid actually said Vanilla Wafer (gotta love it!) Next, I passed out ANOTHER Oreo (could it be true!?) Look at the cookie carefully.Smell the cookie.Think about the cookie.Eat the cookie VERY slowly with your eyes closed, thinking about every bite you take.Think about the texture and the taste of the cookie while you are eating. They loved it!
