Arvutiõpetuse integreerimine kunstiõpetuse tundidesse. Tunnikavad 10 tunniks II, III kooliastmes.
TÜ Loodusteadusliku hariduse lektoraadi vastavatel kursustel (Loodusteaduste visualiseerimine) osalenud õpetajate koostatud interaktiivsed mudelid bioloogiliste protsesside tundmaõppimiseks. Kuigi mudeleid ei saa lugeda lõplikult viimistletuks, on nad õppeprotsessi visualiseerimiseks asjakohased: kasvõi ideede saamiseks. Kasutajal on soovitav fail enne oma arvutisse salvestada ning vajadusel täiendada.
Kõrv loodusesse - loodushelid ja helid looduses
Loodushelid ja helid looduses. Veebilehed info ja illustratsioonidega vastavatest liikidest, võimalik kuulata helindeid. Kõrv loodusesse kasutab kahte erinevat kokkusurutud helifaili formaati: mp3 ja real audio. Üldjuhul võimaldab mp3-formaat paremat kvaliteeti, kuid faili maht on suur. Real audio on väiksema failimahuga, kuid sellega kaasneb kehvem kvaliteet. Aeglase ühenduse korral on seetõttu otstarbekam valida real audio helindid. Kiirema ühenduse korral tasub kuulata parema kvalitee
Philosophy: the nature of persons

It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials and overall
Tropical Environmental Health
Inadequate water supplies and lack of sanitation facilities represent major hazards to the public health in many parts of the world. In spite of the International Water Supply Decade, (1980-1990) there are more people without facilities approaching minimum standards now than existed at the beginning of the program. Without improvements in these areas, there can be no hope that there will be an overall improvement in the health of the nations which constitute the Third World. Yet appropriate tech
Hector Mendiola, a retired pediatrician from Mexico City, who was living in Utah, noticed that many of the children of migrant workers were illiterate in their native tongue and so he developed, along with Fred Berthong, a local community volunteer, a computer assisted program to help Hispanic youth who were illiterate in their native language to learn to read and write in Spanish. The CALFNES program (Computer Assisted Language For Non English Speakers), which they created, and is now in the pu
Big-Nosed Chameleon Walking Along Leaves Looking For Prey
This short video gives excellent real life footage of a Big-Nosed Chameleon walking along leaves looking for food. This chameleon gets its name from the large paddle-like appendage that projects from the nose region. Students will enjoy seeing the close up views of this amazing reptile. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 2 Minutes)
