    World register of marine species. It is open data -you can download and use it. We are going to see a new world of open data where students are explorers. Do they know how to download and use it? Do you? The data divide will be there for kids who don't know how to analyze data on spreadsheets. This is part of the STEM future we should be moving towards. Why not start here?

Stimulating Critical Thinking through a Technological Lens - 13 views

  •  
    Stimulating critical thinking using technology has the potential to create more in depth understanding of science and math content by students when engaged in learning activities which integrate in-class and on-line technology resources. Technology tools support stimulation of both inquiry-based and critical thinking skills by engaging students in exploring, thinking, reading, writing, researching, inventing, problem-solving, and experiencing the world outside their classroom. This is accomplished through learning content through the lens of video to multimedia to the internet (Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement, NCREL, 2005).

5 Ways to Integrate Science Process Skills in Lessons - 16 views

  •  
    Integrating the science process skills within your teaching does not require drastic changes. It simply involves making the process of science more explicit in lessons, investigations, and activities you are already using in your curriculum. The science process skills are the methods used for helping our students understand how we know what we know about the world in which they live. This often means going beyond a science textbook and supplementing the core-content within textbooks. It also means using your course content as a means for exposing students to the real process of science.

Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. - Gapminder.org - 11 views

  •  
    Fascinating way to dispel myths and stereotypes of all kinds: look at the data. It doesn't lie. It's much easier to see the way Hans Rosling presents it at Gapminder.org

    A student on netgened shared this with me based upon his topic "visual data analysis." This is an amazing repository of statistics shown in very cool ways. Great for social sciences.
