How to Use Recycled Tech Devices as Learning Tools The idea of dissection in the classroom is nothing new. Science teachers have been delighting (and occasionally sickening) students for decades by giving them hands-on experience with organisms and tools. What is new, however, is the movement to create un-making spaces in the classroom. Giving kids access to old, broken-down electronics and a safe place to take them apart as they seek to answer why and how things work is an effective and environmentally-friendly teaching technique. Makerspaces and Un-Makerspaces In a recent (excellent) Edutopia article, fifth-grade teacher Scott Bedley describes how he created an un-makerspace. However, Bedley also spoke with the makers at the Bay Area Maker Faire and realized that many of them took things apart when they were kids, as he did. How to Create an Un-Makerspace Bedley shares the seven basic steps that he took to create his un-makerspace.

Tidy Desk or Messy Desk? Each Has Its Benefits – Association for Psychological Science Working at a clean and prim desk may promote healthy eating, generosity, and conventionality, according to new research. But, the research also shows that a messy desk may confer its own benefits, promoting creative thinking and stimulating new ideas. The new studies, conducted by psychological scientist Kathleen Vohs and her fellow researchers at the University of Minnesota are published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. “Prior work has found that a clean setting leads people to do good things: Not engage in crime, not litter, and show more generosity,” Vohs explains. In the first of several experiments, participants were asked to fill out some questionnaires in an office. Afterward, the participants were presented with the opportunity to donate to a charity, and they were allowed to take a snack of chocolate or an apple on their way out. Being in a clean room seemed to encourage people to do what was expected of them, Vohs explains.

The Arts & Crafts of Books | List Off Books have been an inspiration to the masses since the dawn of…books, and it’s no surprise that these inspired people would eventually come back and show their appreciation by slicing their creative thoughts into the pages and bindings. The knife work is meticulous. These artists will set aside days, weeks and months to create ideas and images that could have been done in hours using another medium. For the manlier folk out there, there are some skulls, gun fights and sea monsters. Like this: Like Loading...

Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) Lärare med studentcentrerad pedagogik använder IKT mer innovativt Lärarens pedagogisk grundsyn påverkar starkt hur de använder digitala medier i sin undervisning. Det visar en ny avhandling av Sadaf Salavati, Linnéuniversitetet, Use of Digital Technologies in Education: The Complexity of Teachers’ Everyday Practice. Genom att följa och intervjua flera lärare i sin vardag och intervjuer med skolledare har Sadaf Salavati försökt belysa komplexiteten i lärarens vardag och digitaliseringens utmaningar. Lärare som har en studentcentrerad pedagogisk syn är mer benägna att använda digitala verktyg på ett innovativt sätt en lärare som tillämpar mer traditionell pedagogik. En artikel på, Lärare med studentcentrerad pedagogik använder oftare digital teknik, summerar avhandlingen så här: - Resultatet i avhandlingen påvisar och förstärker tidigare forskning som visat på komplexiteten i undervisningssituationer.

Min europeiska familj : de senaste 54 000 åren - Karin Bojs - Kartonnage (9789100168889) | Bokus Vinnare av Augustpriset 2015 och utnämnd till "Årets bok om svensk historia 2015" av Nättidningen Svensk Historia Vetenskapsjournalisten Karin Bojs bestämde sig för att släktforska på djupet och låta DNA-trådarna knyta ihop henne själv med forntidens människor. Hon läste studier, intervjuade forskare och reste i ett tiotal länder för att följa spåren bakåt.Sedan 1980-talet har DNA-tekniken genomgått en enastående utveckling. Den har revolutionerat såväl kriminalteknikers arbete som biologisk och medicinsk forskning, och har på senare år börjat bidra till ny kunskap inom arkeologi och historia. Till och med släktforskande privatpersoner har börjat använda DNA som verktyg. Med hjälp av små variationer i DNA-sekvensen går det numera att hitta kusiner, sysslingar och bryllingar, och även släktingar som levde för mycket länge sedan - under den senaste istiden och ännu längre tillbaka.Resultatet av Karin Bojs arbete blev en bok om hennes ursprung och hennes familj.

Teaching for Artistic Behavior: Art is Not Easy Ha! I love the way our innermost thoughts work their way to the surface when we create. In this case, it would be this student's struggle to create artwork that matches his standard. I'm now midway through my first rotation of Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) based lesson plans. Currently, four of my classes (the 6th and 7th grades) are working on TAB rotations. I thought it would be good to share my thoughts on this process. In the event you don't know, TAB is, ultimately, a grass-roots organization that recognizes and supports the validity of choice-based arts education. Some students work at the window while others mix color palettes at their seats. If you've read here for any length of time, you'll know that I'm very interested in how the brain works when we learn. For one, choice based arts education? Secondly, giving students choices takes a lot of planning. Thirdly, TAB ain't for sissies. Look ma, we're engaged! But, then came THIS year. Yeah, I'm crazy. 1. What about you?

”Arbetsgivare vill ha mer än kunskap” Konsekvenserna betalas dock av våra barn som får se sin skolvardag utarmad genom ryckiga reformer och dåligt rykte för läraryrket. Det polemikerna inte vill kännas vid är att lärares vardag snarare handlar om att balansera mellan nödvändig teoretisk kunskap och praktiska moment som skapar motivation och engagemang hos eleverna. Enligt forskaren Linda Darling-Hammond så är en av lärarnas viktigaste uppgifter att balansera mellan kunskapsmålen och elevernas egna intressen, talanger och skiftande bakgrund. Som vetenskaplig rådgivare åt president Obama i utbildningsfrågor torde hon veta vad hon talar om. En annan förespråkare av balans är professor Anna Sfard på Haifa universitet i Israel. En stor lockelse i att ensidigt fokusera på teoretiska kunskaper är att det är enkelt att mäta dem. Orimligheten i att låta några slumpmässigt utvalda 15-åringars förströdda svar på enkelt formulerade frågor dirigera skolutvecklingen i ett helt land verkar ha gått Linderoth och många andra förbi.
