Education By Christina Pazzanese, Harvard Staff Writer After centuries of relative torpor, technology breakthroughs have begun to reshape teaching and learning in ways that have prompted paradigm shifts around pedagogy, assessment, and scholarly research, and have upended assumptions of how and where learning takes place, the student-teacher dynamic, the functions of libraries and museums, and the changing role of scholars as creators and curators of knowledge. Michael Sandel, Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government, teaches a popular interactive course, “Justice,” which is also an online course available across the globe. “There are massive changes happening right now,” said Robert A. While the Web is 25 years old, education has been slower than most fields to embrace the Internet’s transformational power. Dynamic, practice-based learning Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff Photographer It’s a shift that’s changing teaching in the humanities as well. Nesterko, S. An expansion of the i-lab

Lesen im Internet: Veränderungen der Gewohnheiten Man nimmt einen Roman, schlägt ihn auf, liest die erste Zeile, springt zum nächsten Absatz, liest dort die ersten Worte und überfliegt den Rest des Kapitels nur noch am linken Textrand. So könnte die Zukunft des Lesens aussehen, befürchten Wissenschaftler. Der dänische Webseiten-Forscher Jakob Nielsen hat in zahlreichen Studien die Blickbewegung von Menschen beim Betrachten von Webseiten analysiert. "Sie tun es nicht. Sie scannen nur die Seiten", so lautete seine Antwort. Eine Studie von deutschen Informatikern unterfüttert Nielsens Daten. In Befragungen geben junge Leser zu, dass sich ihr Leseverhalten in den vergangen Jahren verändert hat. Abdriften im Internet Dazu kommt, dass am Bildschirm zahlreiche Ablenkungsmöglichkeiten vom linearen Lesen abhalten, fand die Linguistin Naomi Baron, vom College of Arts & Science der American University in Washington, in einer aktuelleren Untersuchung unter Studenten heraus.

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops - Letter to the Holy Father His Holiness Pope FrancisApostolic Palace00120 Vatican City Your Holiness, One year ago today, the Bishops of Canada along with all the faithful of our great land saw you appear for the first time on the balcony of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. The simplicity of your manner and your words, the humility with which you invited us to pray for you, and your warm smile quickly gained our affection. In the following days, we learned to know you in greater depth. Today, we are united with you in a prayer of thanksgiving for God's work in you and through you.

Étude - Les Français et le numérique Publié le 15 avril 2014 Comment nos compatriotes appréhendent-ils le digital ? Quel est leur degré de confiance à l’égard des acteurs, des marques et des outils mis à leur disposition ? 25 ans après la généralisation d’Internet et 10 après la création des réseaux sociaux, les internautes français semblent de plus en plus confiants et décomplexés à l’égard du digital, selon la récente enquête « Les internautes français et la confiance numérique » de l’Observatoire de la confiance (*) du groupe La Poste menée en collaboration avec TNS Sofres (voir ci-dessous). L’usage répété nourrit une dynamique positive L’autre élément qui contribue au développement de la confiance est le gros effort fourni par les marques, les banques et les serveurs pour sécuriser les dispositifs dès qu’il s’agit d’échanges ou de transactions en ligne. Cela permet aux plus actifs sur Internet de s’inscrire dans une dynamique positive. La confiance numérique : tout sauf un acquis Florence Berthier

10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda influenced Tesla’s work, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna. Tesla was also influenced by other Vedic philosophies. Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy. Intention of This Article. I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world.

Microsoft to Windows XP users: The jig is up Starting Wednesday, Windows XP users will face a new world with no more technical support or OS updates. That world could prove hazardous to the health of their PCs, which why Microsoft is advising diehards to kick the XP habit. Okay, so let's say you still run Windows XP. Exactly what will happen now that Microsoft is cutting off support? First off, your installation of XP won't mysteriously vanish or suddenly stop working. You'll still be able to use XP just as always with all of the same features and programs you know and love. What end of support does mean is that after today you will no longer be treated to bug fixes, security patches, and other updates from Microsoft to defend and protect XP. Further, Microsoft will no longer offer telephone support for XP users, nor will it update any online support material for XP. Yes, your antivirus software (including Microsoft's own products) will continue to hunt down and eliminate viruses. And just how many computers are we talking about?

Make DIY Shrinky Dinks My parents are both science teachers: which means they always ruined the secrets to magic tricks, they forced me to identify every tree by leaf and bark type, and we always created our own versions of ‘science-y’ toys. We used to cook our Easy-Bake Oven meals with foil and a light bulb, and created our own slime with cornstarch and food coloring. And, when we wanted our own shrinkable art, did we get the sweet pre-printed HeMan or Strawberry Shortcake sheets? Nope. We freehanded it on blank sheets of plastic, and copied the designs from coloring books. The process is simple. Ingredients: - Clean #6 Plastic - Permanent Markers - Scissors - Aluminum Foil - Oven and Tongs or Oven Mitt 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Please include more application ideas in the comments below.
