The Lost Art Of Dreaming Over Maps

The Lost Art Of Dreaming Over Maps | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

The era of exploration is largely over. The highest peaks have been climbed, the South Pole has been reached by almost every human-powered means possible, and all that’s really left for true exploring for the sake of exploration is caving, the ocean, and space. None of us are probably going to find the next deepest-ever cave or find a new species at the bottom of the ocean, but we can head out on a Saturday on a mission that has a low chance of success, or a high chance of getting us lost somewhere, instead of just following the metaphorical road more traveled.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Scientists have issued a new warning to the world’s coastal megacities that the threat from subsiding land is a more immediate problem than rising sea levels caused by global warming.

 

A new paper from the Deltares Research Institute in the Netherlands published in April identified regions of the globe where the ground level is falling 10 times faster than water levels are rising - with human activity often to blame.

In Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest city, the population has grown from around half a million in the 1930s to just under 10 million today, with heavily populated areas dropping by as much as six and a half feet as groundwater is pumped up from the Earth to drink.

The same practice led to Tokyo’s ground level falling by two meters before new restrictions were introduced, and in Venice, this sort of extraction has only compounded the effects of natural subsidence caused by long-term geological processes.
