Ms. Harrington's curator insight, March 30, 7:10 AM

What could explain the density of the white area? What is it about the yellow area that explains the lack of population?

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, April 13, 4:32 AM

While the rainfall map offers a lot of explanation for why Australia's population is concentrated in areas of significant rainfall, it is not a complete picture. There could be a number of other factors contributing to the clustered population of Australia. Northern Australia receives significant rainfall, but is sparsely populated so there must be other reasons. A map with more topography would help as it could show mountainous barriers which would hinder expansion or major rivers on which civilizations thrive. Similarly, a climatic map could reveal areas which are tropical and less conducive to large populations of a more temperate climate.

"Game-based learning is not gamification!" exclaims Jordan Shapiro, author of FREEPLAY: A Video Game Guide to Maximum Euphoric Bliss. "We don't need gamification if gamification is about competition and commodification of learning," Shapiro says in this talk at the Global Education And Skills Forum in Dubai. But what it can do is introduce systems thinking in a way that allows kids to want to solve problems and master new systems, even if they don't know the first thing about it -- yet.

New Views of the Brain [Slide Show]

New Views of the Brain [Slide Show] | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it

Neuroscientists have been mapping the physical anatomy of the human brain for over a century, but until recently researchers lacked a clear and comprehensive picture of which genes are used frequently and which are largely dormant in the myriad parts of this complex organ.

 

In 2012 a team at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle published the Allen Human Brain Atlas, which includes data on the activity of almost every gene at hundreds of locations inside the brains of five men and one woman. For comparison, the team had earlier produced an atlas of the mouse brain. The databases for these atlases, along with a viewer application called Brain Explorer, are freely available online.

A Student-Led, Flipped, Inquiry-Based Learning Classroom Doing Authentic Work

 

A recent popular magazine asked what education will be like for the class of 2025.  While the accompanying article mostly rehashed the ongoing debate between content and process, I saw the cover and had a one-word answer: research.

 

Knowledge is more accessible than ever before, and current technology allows people to tap into information anywhere, anytime.  The internet updates that knowledge every moment as we speak.

 

If teachers aren’t repositories of current knowledge as they might have been in the past, and textbooks contain old news the moment they go to press, classrooms will transform into labs where teachers define an overarching curriculum and guide students through a simple and natural human process to fill it in:

 

- Observe

- Wonder

- Investigate

- Conclude

How To Create a 'Personal Learning Environment' to Stay Relevant. | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it

Three Reasons Why Educators Need a PLE


Education is in a phase of disruption (not news to anyone)—and it’s not just a blip or a bump, but is what Harvard professor and author Clayton Christenson describes as disruptive innovation. This concept describes what is happening in higher education now. We can see disruption in the new forms of course delivery  (i.e. Udacity, Cousera), teaching methods (i.e. flipped classrooms), and new learning models (i.e. competency based learning). These experimental forms of teaching (MOOCs) and assessing (peer review, assessment centers) are changing how educators teach, and impact the student/instructor relationship. Below are three [convincing] reasons why educators should consider creating a PLE:

 

1. We need to disrupt ourselves: The model of higher education is at a turning point. PLEs provide a framework for us to expand our knowledge in our areas of expertise, and in teaching and instructional methods that are and will be appropriate and relevant for the digital era.

 

2. The Instructor’s role has changed. The learner is moving to the center of the learning and teaching model, and relies upon a variety of sources for learning. PLEs will help instructors not only stay relevant in his or her field, but will provide an opportunity to learn how to use tools that will enhance instructional methods and adapt to the changing paradigm.

 

3. Access to the Internet has changed how we teach and learn—forever. New tools devices, and applications are changing our culture and society. Education is not immune. We need to adapt and respond—PLEs will help us to do so appropriately by responding from a position of knowledge and understanding.
