How to Get an Child with Autism to Complete a Task
How to Get an Child with Autism to Complete a Task. Kids who have difficulty completing tasks do so not because they are trying to be defiant. It happens because they lose track on what they should be doing, especially if what they WANT to do is different. Shifting gears so that what they want to do is consistent with what they NEED to do is the key to getting a child with autism to complete a task. (2:18) This is a homemade video between a parent and autistic child.
The Industrial Revolution: The Steam Engine
By the late 1700s, the coal powered steam engine was widely used in English factories. Its operation, based on valve-piston action, was a great advancement for its time, further increasing industrial productivity. This video does a good job of showing how the steam engine works and its importance in the Industrial Revolution. Best used as part of a study on technology and/or with a drawing of a steam engine as the video is short.
Learning space evaluation
The subject of physical learning space has in recent years become increasingly complex This reflection examines what evidence exists in this area
4.2 Subdivisions In this subsection we formalise the idea of a net by introducing a useful concept called a subdivision of a surface. This is a standard kind of net drawn on a surface, and is defined in terms of vertices, edges and faces. It leads to the idea of the Euler characteristic of the surface. All surfaces obtained from polygons by identifying edges arise from a net (of sorts) consisting of a single polygonal face, together with the edges and vertices that remain aft

Water on the Web
WOW lessons are designed for infusion into the existing science curriculums for college freshmen and advanced high school students. The lessons use the aquatic environment and real lake data to explore basic science concepts through two different approaches: a directed study (״Studying״) and an inquiry (״Investigating״) approach. The directed studies allow students to apply and learn concepts through direct, guided experience. The inquiry lessons provide a more open-ended opportunity for stu

How to Make a Crepe Paper Rose
An elementary school teacher explains how to make a crepe paper rose. It can be done by folding several sheets of tissue paper like an accordion, wrapping a single pipe cleaner around the center of the tissue paper and fanning out the leaves of paper to make a flower shape. You can make many of these flowers to create a fun flower bouquet. This is a good craft for young children because it doesn't require scissors or glue and is good for building dexterity.

William C. Norris Institute 25th Anniversary Celebration, June 5, 2014
The University of St. Thomas honored Norb Berg, retired vice chairman of the board, Control Data Corporation, with the inaugural William C. Norris Award for Social Entrepreneurship at a luncheon on June 5, 2014. The award was given to Berg during a celebration of the William C. Norris Institute's 25th anniversary. It was Berg's idea that led to the creation of the William C. Norris Institute in 1988, which was launched as a result of his securing the initial funding of $10 million from Control D

15.063 Communicating With Data (MIT)
Communicating With Data has a distinctive structure and content, combining fundamental quantitative techniques of using data to make informed management decisions with illustrations of how real decision makers, even highly trained professionals, fall prey to errors and biases in their understanding. We present the fundamental concepts underlying the quantitative techniques as a way of thinking, not just a way of calculating, in order to enhance decision-making skills. Rather than survey all
