Whoa! Saturn moon has all the ingredients to support life | #Space #NASA #Enceladus

Whoa! Saturn moon has all the ingredients to support life | #Space #NASA #Enceladus | Science and Technology K-12  Curriculum | Scoop.it

Life on Earth developed slowly over billions of years, and often it seems the modern process of looking for life beyond our own planet moves at a similarly glacial pace. But on Thursday, scientists announced another tantalizing lead in our species-wide quest to answer that great existential question: Is anyone or anything else alive beyond this rock of ours?

Researchers from NASA's Cassini mission say something's happening in a hidden ocean beneath the icy shell of Saturn's moon Enceladus. It's too early to say anything is swimming around down there, but it's becoming clearer that many of the ingredients that allow life to survive in deep, dark underwater environments on Earth can also be found on the Saturnian satellite.

Raph Svensen's curator insight, May 11, 12:57 AM

Great resource for lesson plans that incorporate digital technologies that aren't simply 'add ons' but are redefined tasks. There's step by step instructions on how to implement the lessons as well as how it links to the Australian Curriculum. 

Carly Robbins's curator insight, May 12, 6:51 AM
This website has a really great infographic titled 'ICT vs Digital Technologies'.  It sets out the relationship between ICT Capabilities (one of the General Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum) and Digital Technologies (a learning area for F-10 in the Australian Curriculum).  I found it useful because it details some examples of ICT in action in the classroom.  The website also has some great lesson plans that may be able to be repurposed to suit my learning areas.  There is a lesson plan in particular which is targeted towards Years 7-8 which involves creating a computer program to count votes and makes reference to the voting system used by the Australian Parliament. (https://www.digitaltechnologieshub.edu.au/teachers/lesson-ideas/there-can-only-be-one)  This could be used in a Civics and Citizenship Year 8 class as one of the skills listed in the Curriculum is "Use democratic processes to reach consensus on a course of action relating to a civics or citizenship issue and plan for that action (ACHCS072).  Students could explore and discuss voting and collaborate to achieve a fair voting system.  ICT could be incorporated by having the students creating the the computerised voting system that is referenced in the lesson plan.  Students could also critically evaluate the issues with using a computerised voting system and explore why our voting system still uses a paper system. 
Nic Gibson's curator insight, June 1, 12:40 AM
Australian Curriculum are essential and should be Incorporated into every lesson plan. By basing a lesson around the curriculum you are ensuring the improvement of student learning. the inclusion of digital technology into lessons can aid activities to support student learning.
