Forensic Science for Kids

Forensic Science for Kids | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Forensic science offers a great opportunity to do a variety of scientific tests in one fun science project.

Creating a complete crime scene with the associated experiments for the students to do requires a lot of preparation.... 

...But, once you’ve created the crime scene, and have the lab supplies handy, it is much easier to set it up the second time around.

It can be fun to create your own crime scene, but try one that has already been tested first.If you find your really enjoy learning about forensic science, you might think about eventually getting a forensic psychology degree and pursuing a career in the field!

GEMS Mystery Festival has two forensics projects. One crime involves teddy bears, and the other may be a murder.

Opinion: Let’s make schools more inclusive

Opinion: Let’s make schools more inclusive | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
It’s back-to-school season, and many of us tend to wax nostalgic. Whether you’re a student, parent or a teacher, late August evokes feelings of excitement, hopefulness, anticipation and perhaps anxiety. I am no exception. I have been profoundly deaf since the age of three. The best thing that happened to me was being included in regular classes at Scott Robertson School in Edmonton Public in the 1960s, even though I learned in a different way than my classmates. I had a large hearing

Update: Using Remind to Share Nonfiction Reading with Students | CTQ

Last week, I shared a plan here on the Radical to introduce students to high interest nonfiction reading using Remind -- a service that allows teachers to send updates to students and parents by text, email or app.  If I could send out links to really cool science current events once a day, I reckoned, I might just succeed in my quixotic quest to make nonfiction cool to middle schoolers.

Collaboration, Teamwork, Cooperation - What's the Difference? | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Are teamwork and collaboration interchangeable? For that matter, are cooperation and collaboration the same? Most of us tend to treat these words as synonyms. But I believe there are nuances that could help us be more effective. From what I’ve observed over the years, there’s a continuum based on the degree of interdependence and shared purpose (see image above).

How To (Constructively) Disagree With Your Boss

How To (Constructively) Disagree With Your Boss | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Whatever your feelings toward your boss, the fact is that he or she got to that position because of some combination of experience, expertise, and training. In other words, they earned it. That doesn't mean you'll always agree with the decisions your boss makes. Sometimes you'll even be certain your boss is wrong—either on something small and harmless or much more consequential.

So how do you challenge your boss respectfully and productively? It can be daunting to point out a difference of opinion to someone we report to. Many of us simply aren't great communicators when it comes to those in higher positions.

But with a little effort and tact, you can disagree with your boss in a way that's respectful and gets things done.

9 Ideas for Learning Companies

9 Ideas for Learning Companies | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Learning organisations are good at change. They are resilient and antifragile – that is that, like some biological systems, they get stronger when shocked by disorder and environmental change. More importantly they are good at change when there is no burning platform to drive change as a necessity, thus they stay ahead of the pack. They don't just learn as a bunch of individuals. They learn in teams, across teams and across the whole enterprise and beyond. Here's 9 ideas to enhance your abilities to learn individually and collectively in your enterprise.

The Power of Student Built Rubrics | CTQ

The Power of Student Built Rubrics | CTQ | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

When students spend 12 years in school being evaluated by teachers, it is difficult for them to develop an intrinsic sense of quality.  They only know the values that exist outside themselves in the form of rubrics, scoring guides, and standards-generated data.  However, I want students to own their educational experience.  How can I encourage students to develop internal motivation, self- awareness, and intellectual autonomy, unless I allow them to define the expectations by which they will be evaluated?
