What Will Humans Look Like in 100,000 Years? - 7 views

  •  
    "Pittsburgh-based visual artist Nickolay Lamm, who blogs at UK discount site MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, worked with a computational geneticist to illustrate three ways that humans' physical appearances might change to better suit their environments over the next 100,000 years. However, many of these assumptions don't rely on evolution, but rather zygotic genome engineering technology. Scientists in the future might be able to manipulate human features prior to birth."

STEM Mom: What Inquiry is NOT - 14 views

  • not all labs in a science course should be inquiry. Doing labs that help students to "see" what it is they have been learning is also very important. But lets not kid ourselves and call it inquiry, when it really isn't

MinecraftEdu Elfie: The Word Is Spreading..... - 6 views

    "today I had a visit from the other Year 7 Science teacher in which we were discussing our upcoming assessment on methods of heat transfer and conserving energy in houses. In the past years I have usually just explained how you can conserve heat in houses and avoided creating models, while last year the other teacher got the students to make models"

How to take 3D photos @ Neil Creek - Photographer - 3 views

  •  
    I wrote a tutorial on how to see cross-eye 3D stereo photos on your computer screen. Today I'm going to tell you how to take your own 3D photos. The process is really very simple, and the basics can be explained in less than a minute, but to become good at taking and presenting 3D photos take a bit more time, and it's something that really develops with practice. I hope you'll take what you learn here and get out and get lots of practice taking 3D photos.

To Blog or Not To Blog in Science or Math Class - 5 views

  •  
    The primary purpose of blog is to facilitate interaction between a teacher and his or her students. This is possible because a blog is a dynamic tool which can be easily updated or transformed as necessary to meet the needs of a science or math class.

    The integration of blog technology in a class requires an investment of time. Because of this commitment, additional evidence is needed to support the integration this technology in a science or math class curriculum.

    There… glad I got that out of the way. There ended the longest blogless period I've had in about three years. Not that I've ever been that prolific. In fact, I'm pretty satisfied if I get time to write one post a week. I use Twitter for the smalltalk. Blogging, for me, is about really exploring ideas from one perspective or another. However, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that my last post was April 17th. All that being said, it's time to get back to the synthesis of thought that I only find through this approach.

Wiki or Blog: Which is Better? - 3 views

  •  
    Both wikis and blogs provide teachers with a a dynamic process for integrating Web 2.0 technology in their science and math classes. These two types of online tools offer students a more engaging process for learning.

    Both are relatively easy tools which do not require teachers or students to learn any special program tools or computer skills. Their uses and applications are only limited by the vision and purpose for helping students learn.
