Behind Toledo's Water Crisis, a Long-Troubled Lake Erie - - 0 views

  • loss of drinking water for a half-million residents
  • the government has few legal options to impose limits
  • Summertime bans on swimming and other recreational activities are so routine that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency maintains a website on harmful algae bloom.

  • Lake Erie was mocked as dead in the 1960s, then revived by clean-water rules — it has sunk into crisis again as urbanization and industrial agriculture have spawned new and potent sources of phosphorus runoff.
  • toxin, called microcystin, causes diarrhea, vomiting and liver-function problems, and readily kills dogs and other small animals that drink contaminated water.
  • the algae wreak tens of billions of dollars of damage on commercial fishing and on the recreational and vacation trades.
  • Flooded by tides of phosphorus washed from fertilized farms, cattle feedlots and leaky septic systems, the most intensely developed of the Great Lakes is increasingly being choked each summer by thick mats of algae, much of it poisonous.
  • Addressing so-called nonpoint pollution is mostly left to the states, and in many cases, the states have chosen not to act.
  • Some of the $1.6 billion that Congress has allotted for a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative has gone to create wetlands and teach farmers ways to reduce fertilizer use and runoff.
  • no mention of enforceable limits on pollution.
  • The legislature this year passed a law requiring farmers and other major fertilizer users to apply for licenses and undergo certification, but limits control of pollution to voluntary measures.
  • so-called confined animal feeding operations, the industrial-size feedlots that produce manure en masse

Confronting our fears in the haunted house of the unknown - 0 views

    A recent lesson with my Year Six class reminded me of the fear teachers face when confronted by the unknown. I thought the lesson would go quite smoothly, I have taught it before but this time things went in an unexpected and frightening direction.

How Can Neuroscience Inform Online Adult Education? | The EvoLLLution - 3 views

      • In terms of adult online education, these translate into the following pedagogical strategies:

        • Make use of the inquiry model, supporting learners in conducting their own research and synthesizing their discoveries.
        • Include video and/or audio clips from a variety of experts addressing relevant issues. Or include activities in which learners conduct interviews with experts and share insights learned.
        • Present learners with complex problems via simulations, case studies, role playing, or game-based challenges.
        • Invite learners to write, audio record, or video record their responses to assigned activities.
        • Allow learners to select topics of interest within the scope of the course and to complete assignments based on actual projects related to work or life.
        • Reduce anxiety and stress by including some flexibility in the coursework deadlines.
        • Include graphics, video, or animation to illustrate processes or sequences of events.
        • Provide visuals displaying examples and non-examples of concepts to be learned.
        • Ask questions that require careful observation.
        • Provide learners with opportunities to reflect on their learning and explain how it integrates with their work and/or lives.
        • Offer learners access to online communities of practice to extend learning opportunities beyond the course.
  • Clemons (2005) suggests providing adult learners with the following to maximize learning: (1) steady encouragement, (2) engagement as active participants in learning, (3) occasional elements of surprise or novelty to maintain attention, (4) appropriate humor to relieve anxiety, and (5) activities that encourage interactions.
  • According to McGuckin & Ladhani (2010), online education should reinforce adults’ experiences as well as challenge them to extend learning. Collaborative learning activities providing stimulating discussions and/or complex problem-solving can provide such challenges as well as promote a personal and connected learning environment. In addition, adult learners solidify their knowledge by teaching others; involve learners in group and team projects and allow them to contribute to feedback via peer and self-evaluations.

  • Weimer (2012) encourages three types of activities to develop metacognition and prepare independent, self-directed learners: (1) time and environment management to prepare for learning; (2) reflection and mental questions to monitor self-learning; and (3) use of mental questions or provided rubrics for self-evaluation of new knowledge and skills.

Brain-Based Learning Definition - The Glossary of Education Reform - 0 views

  • Brain-based learning is motivated by the general belief that learning can be accelerated and improved if educators base how and what they teach on the science of learning,
  • it was commonly believed that intelligence is a fixed characteristic that remains largely unchanged throughout a person’s life. However, recent discoveries in cognitive science have revealed that the human brain physically changes when it learns, and that after practicing certain skills it becomes increasingly easier to continue learning and improving those skills. This finding—that learning effectively improves brain functioning, resiliency, and working intelligence—has potentially far-reaching implications for how schools can design their academic programs and how teachers could structure educational experiences in the classroom.
    learning improves brain function!

Social and Emotional Learning | Edutopia - 1 views

  • Numerous research reports show that social and emotional learning (SEL) can have a positive impact on students' academic performance. Edutopia's SEL research review explores those reports and helps make sense of the results.
  • National and local experts discuss how educating the whole child by including social and emotional skills with academics is critical for success in school and in life.
  • Helping students develop a sense of self will ultimately help them to better manage their emotions, communicate, and resolve conflicts nonviolently
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Teaching the soft skills, traditionally associated with conflict resolution and character education, has evolved from being considered "wishy-washy" to being an integral part of educating the whole child.
  • When students work together on project teams, they learn to collaborate, communicate, and resolve conflicts. Cooperative learning and character development supports the social and emotional development of students and prepares them for success in the modern workplace.
    Edutopia has some humor in its writing and definitions of SEL

    Video Tools

    The Video Tools feature is something I would need to think about using. I have numerous years of video producing, shooting, editing, and narrating. But putting together high quality video presentations is a lot of work, and very time consuming. However, I do understand there are quite a few persons who are "visual learners". For them, I would take the extra time to create video presentations and utilize them here, if needed.

    I am very interested in the online quiz feature associated with Video Tools.
