The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces

The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces | Tennis | Scoop.it

Classrooms should be spaces that students don’t want to leave.  Some communities are still hesitant about these futuristic looking learning spaces and have resorted to older, traditional physical spaces. Hopefully, they will begin to embrace changes to better prepare students and move them in the 21st century global economy.

Sarah Hibbeln's insight:

This article was about trying to turn learning spaces and enviroments into what the old days were like.  Stephen Heppell recently spoke in Australia about physical spaces in The changing face of Education. Heppell says that he hopes they will be successful and that it will grow acroos the world. Also, that he wants the spaces looking like is that students must be seated at desks working in rows. And trying to go for Learning Spaces that will be comfortable but simple and that students feel at home. The lighting would be a color with a fresh persective. The sitting would be cozy and would allow the students to move around when doing projects with partners and or by yourself. And trying to bring the outdoors in, it is a proved fact that students improve their grades when they think they are outdoors, Heppell says. Finally, I think this article has potential and should be engoruaged and I wish I could be able to work in this spaces!

While I do not ascribe to everything mentioned in this post, there is much to commend it.

Schools and the learning spaces within them should be engaging and attractive places for children in which to learn. Outside of their home, school is where they spend a significant portion of their lives.

This I think is very odd! It seems to be that cows are cold and look to cars engines for warmth now. The question I have is how did it get up there? My answer for that is it just might have took it a LONG time! They don't only get on top of the car. They also try to find spots were it is warm and can get warmth! I think this might be a problem later into the winter. This topic I think might not grow into a huge problem but it intersted me and caught my attention!

Honey bees can be trained to detect cancer "in ten minutes" says designer

Via Thomas Faltin
Sarah Hibbeln's insight:

This topic amazed me! Its intersting to hear about that honey bees can detect cancer in peoples breath! Also that when they train the honey bees to detect a certain type of cancer like tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer. The bees can be trained in a little bit more than 10 minutes. The glass object work like this: they have two enclosures, a smaller chamber that serves as the diagnosis space and a bigger chamber where previously trained bees are kept for the short period of time necessary for them to detect general health. People exhale into the smaller chamber and the bees rush into it if they detect on the breath the odour that they where trained to target. If they do detect cancer they stay in the second chamber if not they go back to the first chamber. I think they need to keep exploring this experiment and hopefully it will get us closer to the answer of solving varies cancers. And also detecting them before it gets to bad!

They also have a website that you can buy candy and it will be shipped all over the world. She says that if it weren't for tennis, I wouldn't have been here! She is still balancing tennis and her own bussiness which to me shows hard work and determination! Maria has made lots of money over the last year and shows great leadership to the businness and tennis world!

Video Games May Treat Dyslexia

Video Games May Treat Dyslexia | Tennis | Scoop.it

Honing visual attention boosts reading ability. Though small, the study bolsters evidence that dyslexia stems in part from problems in focusing attention onto letters and words in an orderly way. 


Via Josué Cardona
Sarah Hibbeln's insight:

This article I thought was AMAZING! It intersted me a lot that video games might be able to treat Dyslexia people. The University of Padua in Italy found that 10 kids with dyslexia who played an action-filled video game for an 80-minute sessions increased their reading speed! These video games help Dyslexia people in focusing attention onto letters and words in an orderly way. Apparently, video games make you focus on the players to constantly redirecting their attention to different targets. The training worked on visual attention skills and reading hand in hand, and the reading improvements even exceeded those obtained in children after traditional therapies for dyslexia.  Dyslexia need to focus on building language skills, which video games improve. Finally, This article needs to get out more and help people in not only the U.S. but the whole world.

Boy, 10, saves family in speeding car, credits hours of Mario Kart experience

Boy, 10, saves family in speeding car, credits hours of Mario Kart experience | Tennis | Scoop.it
A 10-year-old Colorado boy who likes to play Mario Kart and drive go-Karts grabbed the wheel of his great-grandmother's speeding car when she passed out and guided it safely off the highway.

Via Josué Cardona
Sarah Hibbeln's insight:

This article surprised me a lot! I always have thought that some video games were a waste of time but to me Mario Kart came very handy in this situation. The ten year old boy knew exactly what to do and from what I know is that Mario Kart doesn't include a lot of things in a real-life car! For example, the gas pedal, brake pedal, the consequencnes of hitting someone, and moving in and out of a lane, which lane you should be in, which lane you shouldn't not be in. And he didn't have the control of the brake so how could he have possibly got off the highway when there was probably a high chance of a stoplight after you got off the highway? I think that he might have have jumped into his grandma's lap but still how could he have reaches the pedals. It might have been that he pulled over into the grass off the road. Now that I know about this current event, I'm going to play more Mario Kart just in case!!

This article is talking about a boy saving his great-grandmother by grabbing the wheel of her car and steering it to safety when she passed out. the surprising thing is that from playing Mario Kart, he was able to do this . I have to say doing that was really showing grrat character, and would be a good example to othe kids. Not just for saying that it is important to save someone everyday, but to be able to have the courage to take the wheel and the audacity to steer it to saftey. He also kept a cool head and helped his little brother through it. 

Nolan foote's curator insight, November 12, 2013 9:51 AM

Wow how can a 10 year old boy do this. All the games he had played growing up Mario Kart it really helped save his brother and his grandma great  that's what they called her. The 10-year old colorado boy drove the car into the muddy ditch where soon the car came to a stop. He told his younger brother to keep playing his game and told him your doing great keep it up. Even though there was a car far ahead of them on a highway he new what do to and he did it right. Grandma great had passed out and the boy tried to get her up but he new he had to take the wheel.

UNA QÜESTIÓ DE TEMPS

Si entraras en la casa de la meua germana en Los Angeles, escoltaries els seus crits de "Luca! Deixa el Minecraft! Luca, altra vegada estàs en Minecraft? Luca! N'hi ha prou amb el Minecraft!"

 

Com milions de xiquets de la seua edat, Luca està obsessionat amb el videojoc de Minecraft ... I la meua germana, és la típica mare d'un xiquet típic que li agrada jugar a Minecraft: està preocupada per l'efecte d'aquest joc en el seu cervell.

 

Per a aquells que mai han jugat a Minecraft, és relativament simple. El joc sembla un poc cru perquè no té uns gràfics realistes. En canvi, està construït en 16 bits, un terme informàtic que significa que els gràfics són blocs, com peces de lego gegants, digitals.

More than 1,000 unaccounted for in deadly Colo. floods

More than 1,000 unaccounted for in deadly Colo. floods | Tennis | Scoop.it

The number of people unaccounted for in flood-ravaged Colorado rose Sunday to 1,254 as flooding spread to 15 counties and rain continued to fall.

Many of those unaccounted for were reported unreachable on the phone by family members.

"We don't expect to find 1,254 fatalities," said Micki Trost, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

Five fatalities — three in Boulder County, one in Larimer County and one in El Paso County — have been confirmed since the bulk of the rain began Wednesday evening. Still the number of fatalities could rise. An 80-year-old woman in Larimer County's Cedar Grove was missing and presumed dead after her home was washed away by the flooding Big Thompson River, the county sheriff's office said Sunday. The woman was injured and unable to leave her home Friday night, sheriff's spokesman John Schulz said. A 60-year-old woman is also presumed dead after the river destroyed her home the same night.
