Becker of NMC says just as the role of the teacher is switching from “sage on the stage” to one of a coach or guide, there is a shift from rote to active learning. To foster skills of teamwork and collaboration, online education is incorporating group projects and hands-on labs to help students think more critically and retain the content.

Many Australians live on the coast, but how much do we know about the risks? While average sea levels are relatively easy to gauge, the risk of flooding also depends on weather, landscape, and climate.

Empowering communities to mitigate disaster risks

In the past decade, Pakistan has experienced a range of natural and human-made disasters, from floods to droughts, and is one of the countries considered most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Sudden climate-related events can wreak havoc on entire communities, damaging agricultural land and putting lives and livelihoods at risk. Representatives of the Royal Norwegian Embassy and UNDP visited Chitral in November 2016 to see for themselves how communities are being supported to prepare for, and mitigate disasters.

Types of Student Inquiry - Simplek12

Types of Student Inquiry - Simplek12 | Ufficio RIA 2.0 | Scoop.it
There are various types of student inquiry. How many of them do you know? Thanks to a post I found on Twitter, you’re about to know about all of them. I watch social media closely and it’s my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.

The different levels of student inquiry  are about what a teacher does versus what a student does when guiding a lesson plan, project, or other school activity. Shelly Terrell posted an infographic on her Twitter account that explains the different types of student inquiry. The infographic was created by Trevor Mackenzie.

Ecology and Society: Dealing with change and uncertainty within the regulatory frameworks for flood defense infrastructure in selected European countries

ABSTRACT Whereas existing literature on the interactions among law, adaptive governance, and resilience in the water sector often focuses on quality or supply issues, this paper addresses adaptation in national water laws in relation to increasing flood risks. In particular, this paper analyzes the extent to which legal rules governing flood defense infrastructure in a selection of European countries (England, France, Sweden, and The Netherlands) allow for response and adaptation to change and uncertainty. Although there is evidence that the legal rules on the development of new infrastructure require that changing conditions be considered, the adaptation of existing infrastructure is a more complicated matter. Liability rules fail to adequately address damages resulting from causes external to the action or inaction of owners and managers, in particular extreme events. A trend toward clearer, and in some cases, increased public powers to ensure the safety of flood defense infrastructure is observed. The paper concludes that legal rules should ensure not only that decisions to build flood defenses are based on holistic and future-oriented assessments, but also that this is reflected in the implementation and operation of these structures.
