TED Talks Η Δάφνη Κόλερ δελεάζει κορυφαία πανεπιστήμια να αναρτήσουν στο διαδίκτυο τις πιο ενδιαφέρουσες σειρές μαθημάτων τους δωρεάν-- όχι απλώς ως υπηρεσία, αλλά ως ένα τρόπο μελέτης του τρόπου μάθησης.
"Math can be made meaningful when connected to students’ experiences. With video clips and interactive games from public media students practice math concepts while exploring real world concepts. Learn how to decorate an intricate cake, play the role of the pharmacist, roof a house and more using PBS LearningMedia resources to measure with math."
We hear so much about tablets these days, and new ones seem to be appearing at a rapid pace. Yet we also see teachers who question the use of technology in the classroom. This post looks at the many ways that tablets may be used in the classroom from art to simulations, foreign languages to presentations, ebook and more. To learn more about the ways listed here and an additional twenty, each of which have some additional descriptions click through to the post.

Ο παιδαγωγός ερευνητής Σουγκάτα Μίτρα, προσεγγίζει ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα προβλήματα της εκπαίδευσης - οι καλύτεροι δάσκαλοι και τα καλύτερα σχολεία δεν βρίσκονται εκεί όπου χρειάζονται περισσότερο. Σε μια σειρά πειραμάτων πεδίου, από το Νέο Δελχί, ως τη Νότιο Αφρική και την Ιταλία, παρείχε στα παιδιά πρόσβαση στο διαδίκτυο με δική τους επίβλεψη και συνέλεξε αποτελέσματα που μπορούν να φέρουν επανάσταση στον τρόπο που σκεπτόμαστε για τη διδασκαλία.

More than a hundred scientific societies, universities, research institutes, and organizations all over the world have banded together to dedicate 2013 as a special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth.
Our planet is the setting for dynamic processes of all sorts, including the geophysical processes in the mantle, the continents, and the oceans, the atmospheric processes that determine our weather and climates, the biological processes involving living species and their interactions, and the human processes of finance, agriculture, water, transportation, and energy. The challenges facing our planet and our civilization are multidisciplinary and multifaceted, and the mathematical sciences play a central role in the scientific effort to understand and to deal with these challenges.
The mission of the MPE project is to:
* Encourage research in identifying and solving fundamental questions about planet earth * Encourage educators at all levels to communicate the issues related to planet earth * Inform the public about the essential role of the mathematical sciences in facing the challenges to our planet
