Impact of an Oil Spill
This is a segment of the Ocean Odyssey series that describes the impact of oil spills on the environment, how oil spills are tracked, and what is used to clean up oil spills. Produced specifically for students and is suitable for elementary and older students.
(This is an Emmy award-winning series of instructional programs that introduces students in grades 3-5 to NASA and integrates mathematics, science, and technology through the use of Problem-Based Learning (PBL), scientific inquir
Oil Clean Up in Oceans
This is a segment of the Ocean Odyssey series that contains a Hands-on Activity in which students simulate an oil spill and try to clean it up in different ways. Produced specifically for students and is suitable for elementary and older students.

NASA CONNECT The Venus Transit
In NASA CONNECT Venus Transit, students will learn about the importance of using scale models to represent the size and distance of objects in the solar system and beyond. They will be introduced to the astronomical unit (AU), the baseline distance from the Earth to the Sun, which astronomers use to determine the relative distances from the Earth to other planets, stars, asteroids, and objects in space. They will also discover fascinating facts about the Venus Transit, a celestial and historical
2.5 A model of systems modelling Much, if not most quantitative modelling is carried out in the context of engineering, business and financial studies. These uses of quantitative models are usually not part of a systems approach. Furthermore much of the modelling carried out in systems studies is not quantitative, since issues can often be resolved by using diagrammatic or conceptual models. It is therefore important to clarify the systems context in which modelling in general, and quantitative modelling in particular, will

Present Simple - Theory
A brief explanation of the way in which the present simple is formed. There is a slide show with charts showing affirmative, negative and interrogative forms of the verb tense. (02:27)
Celebrating Our Connections Through Water
This site explains to students how they can collect data about the role of water in celebrations around the world, organize it in a retrieval chart, and use the information to create learning stations for a Water Day Celebration.
Asia and Pacific Islands: Peace Corps
Over two dozen lessons address stories, letters, and folk tales that focus on Peace Corps Volunteer experiences in Asia and the Pacific islands. Topics include arranged marriages, learning a new language and culture, different cultural perspectives, rural Mongolian nomadic culture, cultural and economic complexities in China, learning to speak Chinese, what constitutes a good job, resolving contrasting values between cultures (Sri Lanka and Papua New Guinea).
A learning object is best described as a representation designed to be reused in different educational contexts. In this page you will references to my papers and examples of various learning objects develop either by my self or by my students. Learning objects might reside in digital repositories, ready to be located and utilized by those involved in educational activities (e.g., teachers and students). They address: (a) key concepts from disciplines, in visual and often interactive ways not pe
Digital Storytelling in the Classroom and Beyond
This workshop explores how contemporary technology tools empower students and teachers to engage in highly creative and reflective tasks to organize and present information, and express emotions, ideas and knowledge through multimedia creations known as digital stories. Digital storytelling is increasingly becoming popular in schools all over the world as an engaging technology-based learning strategy. In this workshop, the participants will be exposed to powerful user-friendly and cost-free tec
Active Lessons are engaging, technology-based, student-centered (pupil-centered) learning activities designed by teachers using PowerPoint (or other presentation tool). The idea is to empower teachers to easily create technology-based activities that draw upon variety of existing and new digital resources from internet, repositories of learning objects and other sources, and require students to use technology and create artifacts demonstrating their understanding. This idea partially challenges
Transportation Fuels Rock Performances
This activity encourages student creativity and enhances their presentation skills while teaching about conventional and alternative transportation fuels. In this cooperative learning activity, student groups research conventional and alternative fuels and then write and perform their own rock song.
Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science: Session 2. Classifying Living Things
How can we make sense of the living world? During this session, a systematic approach to biological classification is introduced as a starting point for understanding the nature of the remarkable diversity of life on Earth.,This clip shows an overview of the diversity of life through photography.
Consulting pupils about teaching and learning
The resource is a summary, appearing on the GTCE website, of a three-year research project, led by Professor Jean Rudduck, as part of the Economic and Research Council, Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The project, a Research for Teachers (formerly Research of the Month) case study, considers the impact of consulting pupils about teaching and learning.
Statics is a sophomore level engineering course, offered in all mechanical and civil engineering programs. Statics forms the essential pre-requisite to a number of follow-on courses, such as dynamics and mechanics of materials, and lays the foundation for design of mechanical systems. In most institutions, Statics is taught in a traditional way with an emphasis on the mathematical operations that are useful in its implementation, but without enough emphasis on modeling the interactions between r
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.

Remote engineering implies a new strategy of assessment?
When we spoken about remote engineering as a new methodology used in the cyberspace with the final goal of the teaching/learning improvement and cost sharing, we are obliged to approach all of the process sides. Assessment is one of these sides and there is considered the most powerful tool for illustration, in the qualitative and quantitative ways, the learners responds at educational objectives offered by the remote engineering learning environment. In the present paper the authors have the in
