This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.

Roller Coasters

Roller Coasters | Understanding Physics | Scoop.it

Many extreme roller coaster these days have vertical loops. Have you noticed that these loops are never circular? Why is this?

They all, also, seem to have the same similar ‘inverted teardrop’ appearance. Why is this?

Clearly there is the same physics and mathematics involved in their designs. Let’s take a look and see if we can derive a formula to describe their shape.

Why are roller coaster loops not circular?

Check out the notes from the talk above, consider watching the video embedded within the post and think about new ways to work with your students this year about the concept of failure. If you are an engineer failure you understand that failure is a teaching tool, allowing you to improve the project, but in education most students consider failure just that...they have failed. A couple of quotes found in this visalization are below. What are your thoughts as you read them?

* Have courage. It's not easy to do new things!

* No failure means no risk which means nothing new.

21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn't What It Used To Be | Understanding Physics | Scoop.it

"

"The way we think about work is changing.

Thinking of jobs, careers, and pay is–by some–being replaced with the idea of work, relationships, and meaning. Technology and the resulting connectivity are a part of this. In the 21st century, we all have personal “brands”–digital footprints that precede and proceed us, leaving a record of our interactions and ideas for anyone to see."

As you read through the slides you may find yourself questioning some of her ideas. You may also find new insights into how work is changing, which may lead you to make shifts in work you do with your students.

Here Are Some Questions I Use For Class Closing Activities — What Are Yours? | Understanding Physics | Scoop.it

"I've previously written about research on the importance of “good endings.” It’s a priority for me to end my classes on an upbeat note, but I’ve been thinking lately that I might be able to enhance its benefit to students if I’m a bit more intentional about it with a regular formal closing activity that might take a minute or two. I’ve certainly often done this, but I’m going to try doing it more like 70-80% of the time instead of its present 50%."

BY understanding the brain working with scientific studies like that one, the interest for the use of it shoud be remind.

it should lead to the opportunity to act and react on "natural " original creativity . Beware of the delay between research and applicable process " in free sale"...if on the same time , nothing is drastically done in term of collective life on earth.,it may be tricky to survive in peace otherwise.

 Acting artificially on creativity should increase the differences between these who knows  and can afford it ,and those who don't even ask em a question.tHE MORE WE LEARN...THE MORE WE ASK.

Should we really accept to live with superpowered X- men? when wisdom AND compassion are showing us so much miserable sub-human earth's citizen??

The Gift of Failure: 50 Tips for Teaching Students How to Fail Well

The Gift of Failure: 50 Tips for Teaching Students How to Fail Well | Understanding Physics | Scoop.it

"What if, when students failed, teachers praised them? In the business world, the world of entrepreneurship, failure remains inevitable but so does success if you keep plugging away at your goal.

Embracing this in education teaches students to learn that mistakes lead to success. Science teachers probably understand this concept better than most teachers. They just happen to call it hypothesis or refer to it as an experiment instead of failure."

What would happen if we taught our students (or learners) that failure is a gift, that we learn lessons when we fail. This post provides 50 tips to use with students to help them "fail well." Five are below. Find the forty-five in the post, as well as additional information on each.

* Point out their mistakes

* Praise them immediately

* Experiment with them

* Expose them to the unknown

* Teach them to start over

Use these tips to shift communication around failure. Help your students see failure as an opportunity to learn, to grow.
