Phys.Org Simplicity is key to co-operative robots Phys.Org The team, working in the Sheffield Centre for Robotics (SCentRo), in the University's Faculty of Engineering, has programmed extremely simple robots that are able to form a dense cluster...
Spark a Passion for Science: Jami Cabase OCRegister We are learning computational thinking in all classes. Being able to find solutions to challenges in novel ways and find those to help in a shared goal.
Learners today have the amazing potential to produce their own digital content. But one challenge ahead is to counter a culture where users simply consume digital content rather than engage in the creative process to produce their own.
Today's geoscience education reaches beyond the traditional teaching tools such as rock samples and topographic maps. With the addition of computers in many geoscience classrooms and laboratories, faculty have unprecedented opportunity to create innovative learning experiences by bringing real-world data sets and models and simulations of geoscience processes into the classroom. This site provides resources to help faculty use these resources effectively and easily, by providing access to teaching materials, tips from the classroom and literature about the supporting pedagogy.
