Kathy Lynch's insight:

Spaced repetition of an idea, or interleaving, leads to better learning so immediate feedback may cut the exposure in half... Take your time grading and let them revisit an idea!

The NEW Periodic Table Song (In Order) - YouTube

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 8, 2014 9:28 PM

With the new revised Periodic Table there was the need for a new Periodic Table song...and here it is. Not only are the elements in order, the song also explains the new set-up of the table.

You may want to partner this with the new TED-Ed Periodic Videos that have been published. There is a video for every element.

If you find the  New Period Table Song moving a bit too quickly you can find a version that is slowed down HERE. You will also find the words to the song in you click "Show More" under the video (for the song versions) and you will find links to download the song.

As students have to learn this new chart many will find the song entertaining and a great way to learn the elements. The videos from TED-Ed provide an avenue for students to learn about the elements by watching a video, which many will also find entertaining.

This is an animated visual that shows how human lungs, bird lungs, and a grasshopper (who does not have lungs) breathe. I suspect that students will be very intrigued with this and that a great classroom discussion could take place, or students might want to learn how other animals breathe, and compare them to the images provided.

Mei Lin Fung's curator insight, November 8, 2014 3:54 PM

We are wired to connect what we are doing and where we are to other things we know. It is a survival thing - this means that real world learning has an easier time embedding in our brain and is connected to more parts of our brain - so will stay longer. Learning is easier when it comes "stamped' in time and space and context and relevance.

How do germs spread (and why do they make us sick)? | Co-teaching & Science Resources | Scoop.it

"Germs are found on almost every surface we come in contact with, which makes it incredibly common for our bodies to be exposed to them. But why are some of these germs relatively harmless, while others can be fatal? Yannay Khaikan and Nicole Mideo explore this question by examining germs’ varying modes of transmission."

As flu season approaches teaching students about germs is something we try to do in many classrooms. To make it a bit more understandable this TED-Ed video provides a look just how germs may spread. The language is appropriate for a range of grades (as terms are also explained).

And as all TED-Ed videos you will find a list of additional resources as well as a quiz and a discussion questions.

5 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain | IFLScience | Co-teaching & Science Resources | Scoop.it
The persistence of social media is certainly changing how things are done. In a matter of minutes, you can wish an old friend happy birthday on Facebook, find a recipe for dinner on Pinterest, watch a how-to project on YouTube, and get up to the minute updates on events from Twitter. But social media isn’t just changing how we act; it’s actually changing our brains as well.
