Classroom in the Cloud: Technology as a Learning Environment In September 2013, I was recruited by then-principal Eric Sheninger to be the new library media specialist of New Milford (New Jersey) High School, and was tasked with seeking to improve student performance by developing an exciting and engaging learning environment for all. My vision was of a learner-centered space where students and teachers would have access to exciting technologies, digital and print resources, and productive spaces offering scope for collaboration and creativity. In seeking to turn what been a largely unvisited and unused library into a vibrant part of the school community, I felt challenged by the limitations of the physical space.

How to Make Your Own Board Game: 7 steps (with video) Edit Article Designing the GameTesting it OutCreating the Final Product Edited by Horses4Ever, Jen, Nicole Willson, KnowItSome and 272 others Want to impress everyone on your next game night? Are you trying to think of a fun way to teach a class? How to teach a young introvert What should we do with the quiet kids? A conversation with Susan Cain on the future of classroom education. Susan Cain sticks up for the introverts of the world. In the U.S., where one third to one half the population identifies as introverts, that means sticking up for a lot of people. Some of them might be data engineers overwhelmed by the noise of an open-floor-plan office.
Harry Foundalis - The Bongard Problems The domain in which I did my research in cognitive science is the Bongard Problems. These are problems on visual pattern recognition that appeared first in the appendix of a book published by the Russian scientist M. M. Morse code Chart of the Morse code letters and numerals. Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. The International Morse Code encodes the ISO basic Latin alphabet, some extra Latin letters, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation and procedural signals as standardized sequences of short and long signals called "dots" and "dashes", or "dits" and "dahs". Because many non-English natural languages use more than the 26 Roman letters, extensions to the Morse alphabet exist for those languages.
Math Chat - Solve Problems Together in Real Time This is a guest post from Sabba Quidwai (@AskMsQ) of EdTechTeacher - an advertiser on this site. Recently, I attended the EdSurge Summit in Los Angeles where I had the chance to take a first hand look at a great, new, FREE app called MathChat. We can all relate to a similar, enormous challenge while growing up: being stuck on a math problem with no one to help.

Conserved polarity regulators, including the PAR (Partitioning defective) proteins, localize asymmetrically and help to distinguish contacted (basolateral) and contact-free (apical) surfaces. In some species, such as Xenopus laevis and mouse, radial polarization leads to the formation of an external epithelial cell layer that surrounds internal nonepithelial cells with differences in developmental potential. However, in other species, such as Caenorhabditis elegans, radially polarized blastomeres do not become epithelial, and polarity is not required for cell fate decisions.
2.1 Key features of PBL PBL involves learning through tackling problems. Although the problems, or tasks, may not always have a ‘solution’, PBL nevertheless provides a rich learning environment in which students identify what needs to be studied and learnt from examining the problems confronted (Gibbs, 1992). The problems are used as a tool to achieve both the required knowledge base and the skills to ‘solve’ them (Barrows, 1986). The basis of PBL is that students learn by doing. It is a student-centred system whereby students, working within small groups, generate the information necessary to respond to, or solve, a specific problem or task. One attractive feature of PBL in my experience is that it helps develop in students both subject-specific and transferable skills (Figure 1).
Cell Size and Scale Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny. Cell nucleus HeLa cells stained for the cell nucleus DNA with the BlueHoechst dye. The central and rightmost cell are in interphase, thus their entire nuclei are labeled. On the left, a cell is going through mitosis and its DNA has condensed. Because the nuclear membrane is impermeable to large molecules, nuclear pores are required that regulate nuclear transport of molecules across the envelope. The pores cross both nuclear membranes, providing a channel through which larger molecules must be actively transported by carrier proteins while allowing free movement of small molecules and ions.
