Responsiveness and Social Expression; Seeking Human Embodiment in Intelligent Fa?ades
This paper is based on a comparative analysis of some twenty-six intelligent building facades and sixteen large media-facades from a socio-psychological perspective. It is not difficult to observe how deployment of computational technologies have engendered new possibilities for architectural production to which surface-centeredness lies at that heart of spatial production during design, fabrication and envelope automation processes. While surfaces play a critical role in contemporary social pro
Dunes: Process and Form
This site provides Flash animations that illustrate form variations in sand dunes. Visualizations, photographs and supporting text demonstrate the conditions necessary to produce various dune shapes, including longitudinal, crescent, star, parabolic and transverse dunes. These resources may be integrated into lectures, labs or other activities.

12.753 Geodynamics Seminar (MIT)
In this year's Geodynamics Seminar, we will explore the depth and breadth of scientific research related to Earth's present and past ice-sheets, glaciers and sea-ice, as well as extraterrestrial planetary ice. Invited speakers have been chosen from experts in the current frontiers in ice-related research, including planetary ice, climate records from polar and tropical ice cores, the Snowball Earth, subglacial volcanoes, ice rheology, ice sheet modeling, ice microkinetics, glacial erosion and t
Virtual Maths, Shapes, Space and Measure, Demonstration of a Theodolite Survey in action
Using a theodolite to calculate the height of a building, demonstration 'in the field', includes interactive simulation tools and formulae
Fracture surface in polystyrene
The fracture surfaces are generally very sharp and angular, indicating fast, brittle fracture with little ductile tearing. Parabolic 'beach marks', can be seen where the fracture has grown at a speed comparable to the speed of sound in the material (and has thus been periodically arrested) and indicate the direction in which the fracture has occurred. In places, there is evidence of ductile tearing, and also a finely fibrous surface which is the remnant of crazes. There is also some evidence o

Here is a video of a 2nd grade class singing a noun Song. The lyrics define a noun and show words and images of nouns in the slide show.
Workshop 8: Learning to Listen
With Dr. Wynne Harlen. Formative assessment is a term that has gained prominence as teachers recognize the value of uncovering students’ thinking during the course of instruction. This information is then used to guide the development of lessons as well as provide feedback to students to assist them in their learning. In this workshop, you will see teachers e
