Description not set
Knowledge technologies in context
This unit explores knowledge technologies, that is, software systems that can represent, interpret, formalise or interrogate phenomena and create models of how the world works. It demonstrates how a well designed system can have positive effects on the work ‘ecosystem’, potentially allowing more time for people to concentrate on their strengths. Emphasising core concepts of representation, interpretation and situated use in context, this unit will help masters students and those involved in

Finding Common Ground
Bileni Teklu works one-on-one with her fifth graders as she encourages them to interact with literature through careful conversation. Ms. Teklu encourages her students to think about what they enjoyed about their reading experience, and ways in which what they read has some resonance in their own lives. Texts include Martin Luther King by Ed Clayton, Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, Author(s):
Barry Hoonan and his fifth- and sixth-grade cluster explore ways in which individual readers can help themselves enter the story world of a text. The group explores two different methods—using sticky notes in several different ways and mapping—which lead its members directly into the text. The text they have chosen for their attention, Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman, features a 14-year-old protagonist who suffers from cerebral palsy
Graphing Lines Using a Table of Values
This video clip explains how to use a table of values to plot points and connect them. There are several other methods of graphing lines, including using a point and the slope. Sometimes graphing lines using an equation involves the same methods as using a table of values. Since we graph lines in the coordinate plane, it is necessary to understand how to connect graphs, tables and equations. (2:27)

A message to Duke University alumni from President Richard H. Brodhead.
With Dr. Robert Swartz. Teachers can help students become good thinkers. Good thinkers raise key questions and gather and evaluate pertinent information, thus making informed decisions. But how do we teach students to think skillfully? In this workshop, you will see how thinking skills can be infused into science content instruction, contrasted with direct instruction in non-curricular contexts. You will also see classrooms where teachers have restructured their lessons to infuse thinking skills
Physicists use the concept of a system to trace and quantify the flow of energy. In this session, take a close look at a number of energy systems and see how this concept is closely linked to the Law of Conservation of Energy.,This segment explores the question "How can systems be useful tools for thinking about energy?" by visiting classrooms as well as interviewing students and scientists.
The raw materials for a learning activity about Perception and Mindsets.It introduces the concepts of Perception and Mindsets, explores what they are and how they function in order to demonstrate their importance in creativity.The inter-relationship between the two concepts is examined. This is developed further as the influences on creativity are explored.
