101questions

What is the first question that comes to your mind?

 

For any practitioner seeking to engage maths learners, Dan Meyer’s 101questions site, is a resource that is wort a closer look!

 

Images and videos are posted on the website, and registered users are invited to pose questions, using 140 characters or less.

 

After asking a question, users can check to see what others have asked.

 

I’ve had fun browsing the website, and I’m pretty sure there’s potential here for engaging maths learners.

The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom is an online interactive tutorial of basic physics concepts. The lessons use an easy-to-understand language to present common physics principles discussed in physics courses.

 

The Physics Classroom provides access to...

- physics tutorials,

- Mind on Physics Internet Modules (1300+ questions designed to improve understanding of common physics topics),

- problem sets for practice,

- multimedia,

- animations (ideal for using on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected PC)

- activity sheets,

- curriculum corner (pdf downloads),

- labs,

- photos, and more.

 

I suggest practitioners spend time exploring this site before recommending it to learners so they can help them navigate it.

 

There is a danger, because it is so information heavy, the Phusics Classroom could be a turn-off for learners who are just dropping in looking for something specific.

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham | Technology for school | Scoop.it
Short videos about every element on the periodic table, plus other cool experiments and chemistry stuff...

 

Science practitioners will want to bookmark this as soon as possible.

 

The University of Nottingham has created ‘The Periodic Table of Videos‘ and it’s just what the title would imply. 118 videos that explain each element.

 

Video journalist Brady Haran and working chemists from the University of Nottingham assembled these videos and they claim they’re going to start improving and beefing up each video with new stories, better samples, and bigger experiments.

 

They also have a new video series, dubbed ‘The Molecular Videos’ which is a showcase of their favorite molecults and compounds.
