Exploration Design Challenge | NASA - 6 views

  •  
    All students and educators participating in the challeng will have their name flown on the Exploration Flight Test-I mission as a member of the virtual crew. This mission will be unmanned and will launch in late 2014. So, kids can be a "virtual explorer."

    There are 4 challenges, age appropriate, to help design protective radiation protection for astronauts. We need to get students interest in space travel for a variety of reasons. This is a lovely real world project for students to join or could be a project for one of your #geniushour teams.

    "The goal of the Exploration Design Challenge is for students to research and design ways to protect astronauts from space radiation. NASA and Lockheed Martin are developing the Orion spacecraft that will carry astronauts beyond low Earth orbit and on to an asteroid or Mars. Protecting astronauts from radiation on these distant travels is an important -- and very real -- problem that needs solving. NASA would like your help!"

Student Digital "Textbooks" using LiveBinders - 12 views

  •  
    Here are Michael Thornton's student livebinders. These are textbooks written by the students. Except for the typo on Ancient Greece review, this is a marvelous example of having students build meaningful textbooks.Interestingly, Michael's livebinder puts together livebinders themselves. I'm going to be learning more about this tool and have my students use these this year.

For Citizen Scientists - NASA Science - 8 views

  •  
    NASA calls for Citizen scientists to help map Mars and says that citizen scientists "have helped to answer serious scientific questions, provide vital data to the astronomical community, and have discovered thousands of objects including nebulas, supernovas and gamma ray bursts."

    It is time to join your classrooms into the citizen scientist movement. How would your students feel about science if they helped discover a star?

    Dear Educators,

    You can even promote world peace by connecting with teachers and students in their classrooms worldwide and learning more about each other's country and culture

    The tools for your use include the ability to have live video chat, make PowerPoint presentations, stream video, share your desktop, record and share your presentation, and much more.

    Guests do not have to download any software. They simply click on the link to your conference that you send them, no cost, no travel and better yet, no wasted time.

    This tool is affordable and easily fits into a classroom, school or administartive office budget.

    As a former superintendent in the education system with more than 50 schools spread out 400 miles along a major highway, the ability to communicate with everyone in an efficient, effective and economical manner was essential.

    Hope you find this helpful.

    Best wishes,

Qwiki - 10 views

  •  
    Qwiki's goal is to forever improve the way people experience information.

    Whether you're planning a vacation on the web, evaluating restaurants on your phone, or helping with homework in front of the family Google TV, Qwiki is working to deliver information in a format that's quintessentially human - via storytelling instead of search.

    We are the first to turn information into an experience. We believe that just because data is stored by machines doesn't mean it should be presented as a machine-readable list. Let's try harder.

    Your job will be to investigate e-mails or scenarios online that have been circulated or seen by thousands of people. After doing research, you will determine if those sites or e-mails are truthful or if they are a hoax. Once you have completed this webquest, you will be more critical of information on the Internet and your research skills will be more advanced.
