Currently nanotechnology is mainly used to produce nanoparticles, or materials with very specific properties.  In the video http://youtu.be/mEH6tDLKcVU ;

the superhydrophobic coatings shown at the beginning are one example.  Graphene and carbon nanotubes are other nanoparticles with incredible potential in a variety of applications.

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.

Adaptability to Online Learning: Differences Across Types of Students and... | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
CCRC conducts research on community colleges and contributes to the development of practice and policy to promote success for all higher education students.

 

Abstract

Using a dataset containing nearly 500,000 courses taken by over 40,000 community and technical college students in Washington State, this study examines how well students adapt to the online environment in terms of their ability to persist and earn strong grades in online courses relative to their ability to do so in face-to-face courses.

 

While all types of students in the study suffered decrements in performance in online courses, some struggled more than others to adapt: males, younger students, Black students, and students with lower grade point averages. In particular, students struggled in subject areas such as English and social science, which was due in part to negative peer effects in these online courses.

A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013

A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013 | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
Sugata Mitra is named the TED Prize winner at TED2013. He shares his wish—for a school in the cloud that encourages self-learning.

 

Mitra has a history of research to back up this wish. In 1999, he began what he calls his “hole in the wall” experiment. He carved a hole in a wall in a Delhi slum — about three feet high — and placed a computer in it. Kids had gathered around within a matter of hours and asked Mitra questions about what this thing was. He responded “I don’t know,” and walked away.

 

===> Soon the kids were surfing the internet — and teaching each other how to do it more effectively. <===

 

Mitra repeated the experiment 300 miles away, where computers even less familiar. He installed a mysterious computer on the side of a road. A few months later, he returned and found kids playing games on it.

 

Remembers Mitra, “They said, ‘We want a faster processor and a better mouse.’”

Another thing these kids said that was music to his ears:

 

“You’ve given us a machine that works only in English, so we had to teach ourselves English.”

 

Mitra says, “It was the first time I heard the words ===> ‘teach ourselves’

Teachers: Will We Ever Learn?

Teachers: Will We Ever Learn? | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
Thirty years later, we’re still “a nation at risk.”

 

THE changes needed to professionalize American education won’t be easy. They will require money, political will and the audacity to imagine that teaching could be a profession on a par with fields like law and medicine. But failure to change will be more costly — we could look up in another 30 years and find ourselves, once again, no better off than we are today. Several of today’s top performers, like South Korea, Finland and Singapore, moved to the top of the charts in one generation.

 

Real change in America is possible, but only if we stop tinkering at the margins.

 

Jal Mehta, an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is theauthor of the forthcoming book “The Allure of Order: High Hopes, Dashed Expectations, and the Troubled Quest to Remake American Schooling.”
