Alternate Reality Game Will Turn You Into a Fitness Maniac "Alternate reality game" is the term du jour for what used to be called "playing make-believe with your friends outside." The main difference is that ARGs are designed by professionals, aimed at adults, and usually harness the Internet and mobile phone technology to create their fantasy worlds as virtual "layers" over the real world. Run an Empire is a new ARG app that challenges you to conquer territory and defend it from rivals, rather like the classic strategy game Risk--but the territory is your own neighborhood, and the only way to conquer it is to walk or run around it with your own two feet. "Strategy games have traditionally challenged players to out-think and out-maneuver one another," says Ben Barker, who co-created "Run an Empire" at PAN Studio in London. "What’s incredibly exciting for us is the potential to see this mechanic played out away from screens and keyboards, playing pieces and dice rolls-–where the game board is overlaid on the world around us."

Console Living Room : Free Software : Download & Streaming collection eye The Atari 2600 is a video game console released in September 1977 by Atari, Inc.

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.

Cumulus ConfectionHigh on Mt Olympus, the Greek gods are planning their annual carnival. 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.

Troubled Waters: nouveau webdoc traduit en 8 langues! Paris, France – (June 8th 2015) – At the occasion of the World Oceans Day organised by UNESCO on June 8th in Paris, this new interactive documentary was launched in 19 countries to find solutions in front of what is called, the most silent and invisible environmental disaster of our times. As a matter of fact, 634,000 kg of waste are dumped every second into our oceans. For two years, filmmaker Isabelle Sylvestre travelled across Europe to understand how Europeans are dealing with this alarming situation. From volunteers doing active door-to-door campaigns, to politicians fighting the so-called “dilemma” between employment and environmental regulations; from the rise of “green” ports to innovative local initiatives, Isabelle Sylvestre encountered Europeans, who in their own way, try to change things – or not.

lapse: Imágenes de satélite Landsat de Cambio Climático, a través de Google Earth Engine TIME and Space | By Jeffrey Kluger Spacecraft and telescopes are not built by people interested in what’s going on at home. Rockets fly in one direction: up. Telescopes point in one direction: out. Of all the cosmic bodies studied in the long history of astronomy and space travel, the one that got the least attention was the one that ought to matter most to us—Earth. That changed when NASA created the Landsat program, a series of satellites that would perpetually orbit our planet, looking not out but down.
