Visit to a Museum in England- Learn about Ancient worlds
In this programme Year 7 pupils are treated to a visit to the World Museum in Liverpool as an introduction to Key Stage 3 history.
Teacher Gareth Rogers from Weatherhead High School on the Wirral chose a day of Egyptian-themed sessions to make best use of the collections his local museum has to offer.
On the trip they find out about mummification through role-playing, handle Egyptian treasures and practice writing hieroglyphics. (Professional video)

Discovery learning is generally seen as a promising but demanding mode of learning that, in most cases, can only be successful if students are guided in the discovery process. The present article discusses a study on discovery learning with a computer simulation environment in the physics domain of collisions. In the learning environment, which is called Collision, students learned about collisions where two particles move in the same direction and interact via a conservative force in such a way
"All the places I have lived have produced the writer that I am." Mario Vargas Llosa
Mario Vargas Llosa, 2010 Nobel Laureate in Literature, speaks about how his writing is influenced by his Peruvian roots and his experiences living in Spain, France, England, and the United States.

Understanding Online Interaction
This course is designed to provide an introductory level of understanding of the manner in which individuals interact with one another via the network. Possession of this understanding is absolutely critical to your ability to design effective learning environments on the network. This course takes an immersion approach to helping you develop your understanding by requiring you to make extensive, reflective use of several representative interactive media. You will also read several representativ
Producing Distance Education Resources
This course focuses on the production of resources (broadly interpreted) for use in online education (including formal and informal settings). In particular, the course focuses on Internet-based tools and technologies, and how they are developed and applied for use in online learning.

Case It! Case Study Learning via Simulations of Molecular Biology Techniques
Case It! is an NSF-sponsored project to promote collaborative case-based learning in biology education worldwide. This paper describes the latest version of the Case It! simulation software (DNA gel electrophoresis, Southern blotting, and PCR). Students use these open-ended molecular biology computer simulations to analyze case studies involving genetic diseases, then discuss results with their peers at other institutions via web-based "poster sessions." They also use Case It! software to gather
Crops of the Future: A Problem-Based Learning Exercise for the Laboratory
In problem-based learning (PBL), complex, real-world problems motivate students to discover interconnections between important concepts and in doing so acquire essential skills. These skills include teamwork, problem solving, information retrieval and analysis, and communication. The activity presented here suggests a way to add a "hands on" component to PBL by integrating a problem with a guided inquiry exercise. Problem resolution depends on observations made in the laboratory, using probes an

Virtual Maths Data Handling - Light Survey, Worksheet for Bigger Room
Light Intensity Survey worksheet, activity including resources, for bigger room
Students come to understand static electricity by learning about the nature of electric charge, and different methods for charging objects. In a hands-on activity, students induce an electrical charge on various objects, and experiment with electrical repulsion and attraction.
If You Can Read -at Song
This catchy song about words in the -at word family comes from PBSKIds series, "Between the Lions". The premise of the song is that if you can read "at", you can read many other words, too, including fat, flat, sat, scat, and more. The words are built on the screen as they are mentioned in the song, making it easy for kids to see and read the words that are in the song. Excellent practice in blending initial consonants with -at family. (:45)
