WISE - Course Room Set-up Kit Our training courses don’t exist to train you or your employees in your profession or technical field. That’s not our purpose. Our materials don’t cover how to perform open-heart surgery or how to repair a car; we assume you know your profession. 11 Multimedia Lessons to Inspire Change - Official Teach Blog This is the first in a series of articles to take you through some multi-media tools and ideas that can help your students to become confident learners by becoming confident thinkers. So many things can happen in a classroom in any one minute – have you ever thought of freeze-framing one instant in a classroom and going back to reflect upon how many teachable moments are present within this moment? Perhaps by encouraging our students to be responsible for their own choices, and by believing in them, we can create the impetus for growth, challenge and change. We can encourage students to take the initiative by ”allowing” them to be themselves. I believe that our students are also undergoing changes and be-coming themselves. We can facilitate this change and let them choose what kinds of butterflies they want to become.

Independent Checksheets We have set up, by necessity, an Independent Scientology course room, not affiliated with DM's because we want to practice Scientology and due to DM's 'Unclean Hands' (a doctrine in equity) we have been compelled to do so. We can't get Standard Scientology from DM's church anymore, because it isn't there and because he prevents us from getting it.

The basic philosophy behind education for millennia has been that experts know stuff, so the experts (or their agents) will tell you the stuff you need to know. The problem is learning simply doesn’t work that way. People learn by trying things out and seeing how it goes.

TED Ed – Online Tools for Teaching & Learning TED-Ed is a “lesson creator” platform that allows you to structure an assignment around a video and assess students’ engagement with the material. The lesson format consists of a lesson title, a written introduction (“Let’s Begin”), a series of multiple choice or open-ended questions (“Think”), a place for additional resources to encourage further exploration (“Dig Deeper”), an interactive class discussion (“Discuss”), and a closing (“And Finally”). Ever watch a great video on YouTube and wish you could share it with your class?

Modeling Introduction Abstract. Mathematics has been described as the science of patterns. Natural science can be characterized as the investigation ofpatterns in nature. Central to both domains is the notion of model as a unit of coherently structured knowledge. Modeling Theory is concerned with models as basic structures in cognition as well as scientific knowledge. Crap Detection 101 - City Brights: Howard Rheingold “Every man should have a built-in automatic crap detector operating inside him.” Ernest Hemingway, 1954 The answer to almost any question is available within seconds, courtesy of the invention that has altered how we discover knowledge – the search engine.

Assessing the credibility of online sources - Webcredible UX blog As online technology rapidly develops, the criteria for evaluating these sources develops as well. Online sources are so new that their status as accurate sources is not fully established; therefore, you should verify online sources before you invest time in browsing the web or assessing the credibility of sources you find there. Once you've determined that online sources can be used, you'll still need to assess their credibility.
