Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape

Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape | Flipped education | Scoop.it
Climate change is dramatically altering the Swiss Alps, where hundreds of bodies of water are being created by melting glaciers. Though the lakes can attract tourists and even generate electricity, local residents also fear catastrophic tidal waves.

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 2:12 PM

Its been known that Americans have lavish lifestyles compared to outher populous countries. In this article they show a represntation if the entire world lived like (had as much space) americans and it was astoudning. It would take 4 earths to fit the world if everyone had this lavish lifestyle. So we obviously need to change our ways. Cities ae very helpful to sharing this earth. They serve as a main hub so youll only have to ship to a few places. This with the shortening of distances would save tons of gas and othe rescources. But as the article states everyone living in a Main city wouldnt be possible because people need to produce outside the city. So in my opinion for this city world to work it would need to be a few megacities preferably one on each continent and for them to the city be surronded by production methods.

Digitala klassrummet – ett fullskalelabb i världsklass | Lunds universitet

Digitala klassrummet – ett fullskalelabb i världsklass | Lunds universitet | Flipped education | Scoop.it

På torsdag 8 november invigs Lunds universitets nya fullskalelabb – det digitala klassrummet. Det är det största och bäst utrustade i sitt slag i världen och lockar forskare från många länder. Med hjälp av 25 ögonrörelsemätare kan man analysera hur barn lär sig saker och hur de löser olika problem. Forskningen förväntas leda till nya läromedel anpassade efter varje barns förmåga och intresse – en hjälp särskilt för dem som i dag har det svårt i skolan.

Det digitala klassrummet är inrymt i en före detta hörsal på Humanistlaboratoriet i Språk- och Litteraturcentrums källarplan. Forskarna samarbetar sedan tidigare med flera skolor. Många lärare både där och på andra håll är intresserade av att ta hit sina elever och delta i forskningen.

- Vi befinner oss i en brytpunkt i utvecklingen av pedagogiska metoder. Elever kommer framöver att studera mer på elektroniska medier än i pappersböcker. Många av framtidens läsplattor kommer att ha inbyggda ögonrörelsemätare och det är viktigt att vi lär oss utnyttja möjligheterna som erbjuds, säger docent Kenneth Holmqvist, som leder ögonrörelseforskningen i Humanistlaboratoriet.

Docent Jana Holsanova leder en ny grupp på universitetets tvärvetenskapliga Pufendorfinstitutet. Gruppen ska brett utforska hur man med högteknologi i klassrummet kan främja elevers lärande.

- Lunds universitet ligger i framkant inom ögonrörelseforskningen och kopplingen till lärande. Vi har under de senaste tio åren utvecklat en rad metoder och verktyg, för att stödja och utvärdera lärande, läromedel och hur människan interagerar med olika medier. Nu får vi möjlighet att pröva dem i stor skala, säger Jana Holsanova.

Humanistlaboratoriets chef professor Marianne Gullberg är mycket glad för det digitala klassrummet:

- Det öppnar helt nya möjligheter att studera lärandeprocesser och pedagogiska metoder med olika perspektiv.

Hon lyfter fram de nya kontaktytor som skapas i och med ett nytt forskningsprojekt som startar i januari och som får det digitala klassrummet som sitt laboratorium. I projektet ska inlärningsforskare samarbeta med bland annat forskare inom det nya ämnet utbildningsvetenskap. Projektets syfte är att förbättra lärandet i grund- och gymnasieskolan och det finansieras med sex miljoner kronor av Stiftelsen Marcus och Amalia Wallenbergs minnesfond.

Det digitala klassrummet har finansierats av Knut och Alice Wallenbergs stiftelse med en miljon kronor och av LUs tidigare Råd för forskningsinfrastruktur med 1,2 miljoner kronor.

Adam Deneault's curator insight, December 14, 2015 7:57 PM
This is a pretty informative interactive map of the largest ports in the world. Very well put together to help some understandings of trade. Most of the ports are on the East coast of China which is the Pacific Sea. The reason there are probably so many here in China is because they make a large amount of product that needs to be shipped worldwide. They are like the leading country in imports and exports to other global or major global markets.
Alex Smiga's curator insight, March 14, 7:40 PM

This more clearly shows the regional restructuring of the global economy than just about anything I've ever seen, especially manufacturing.  The 8 largest and busiest ports in the world are all in East or Southeast Asia (and 11 of the top 13).  A quick glance at the historical charts will show that most of these were relatively minor ports that have exploded in the last 20 years.

Felix Ramos Jr.'s curator insight, March 26, 2015 11:08 AM

This article reminds us all of the growth-stunt that colonialism in Africa brought to the continent.  It is not surprising to see that most African countries still depend heavily on their old colonial masters for survival.  People who may casually follow African politics might think that colonialism started with the Berlin Conference and ended in 1990 or so, but one could argue that it hasn't ended due to the urgent dependency African countries still have on their old colonizers.  Africa might be the most beautiful continent in the world but has the worst story of any in the world.
