Native American Community Teaching and Demonstration Garden Nez Perce Reservation, Nez Perce County,
This site provides information on a USDA research project. The primary objective of this project, a teaching and demonstration garden, is to provide hands-on teaching and demonstrations to grade school-age children, elders, the USDA Tribal Food Service Center, and other residents of the reservation. The primary teaching and demonstration efforts will target knowing native plants of the Americas; planting and establishing plants of the Americas; understanding garden vegetable culture and producti
Learning aware environement: a Laboratorium of epidemiological studies
One challenge of the Laboratorium is to have the capacity to recognize and capture relevant events from observing the human activity, the ability to understand the learning needs and then to provide the adequate feedback in whatever form. Another challenge is the mapping of inaccessible phenomena into the sensible and temporal space of the classroom. Our design combines gaming situations and ambient technologies in the context of learning bio-statistics. This paper presents a method and a formal
Richard Kopley: Discovering Poe
Richard Kopley, Distinguished Professor of English at Penn State DuBois, presents a concentrated and original view of the timeless works of Edgar Allan Poe. Poe is considered the inventor of the modern detective story. And like Poe's fictional detective Dupin, Richard Kopley's tireless and focused investigations have uncovered innovative discoveries about Poe the writer, and Poe the man. Author of the book "Edgar Allan Poe and the Dupin Mysteries", Kopley's understanding of Poe is the result o
Amazing Grace: Horrors of the Middle Passage
THIS VIDEO RECREATES WHAT HAPPENED WHEN AFRICANS WERE
KIDNAPPED FROM THEIR HOMES AND FORCED INTO SLAVERY. IT IS NOT EASY TO
WATCH. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.
Kidnapped Africans, captured as slaves, endured unimaginably horrific conditions aboard ship. Sent from their African homelands to a “new world” not their own, many died during the crossing. Sick people were deliberately drowned. (Part of the Movie Armistad.)
The Siren Song of Cancer Cells
The treatment of complex diseases like cancer may lie in grasping their mechanisms at all levels of biological hierarchy. Most research focuses on understanding how genes cause cancer from within a cell, but much can be learned from intercell interaction.
Magic, Hypnosis and the Brain
Hypnosis is an interesting tool for understanding how the mind works in terms of attention and suggestion. But can it be used therapeutically?
18.100C Analysis I (MIT)
This course is meant as a first introduction to rigorous mathematics; understanding and writing of proofs will be emphasized. We will cover basic notions in real analysis: point-set topology, metric spaces, sequences and series, continuity, differentiability, and integration.

Science Bulletins: MRSA—When Good Bacteria Go Bad
The bacteria Staphylococcus aureus is a benign resident of the human microbiome. But in the last 15 years, a strain of it has evolved to become a major public health problem. To understand how everyday microbes can change so dramatically, laboratories are investigating how bacterial communities exchange genetic information in the environments we share. Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Edu
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
How We Organize Knowledge: The Structure of the Disciplines
This program covers the ways in which the organization of knowledge and understanding can influence learning. It also introduces Bruner’s and Schwab’s ideas about the structure of the disciplines. Featured are a fourth-grade teacher, a 10th-grade biology teacher, and a ninth- through 12th-grade teacher, with commentary from Lee S. Shulman, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. How to get students to think like professionals is the topic.
Concepts and methods for exploring the future of learning with digital technologies. Kaleidoscope
Very little of the transformation of working and social life that has accompanied digital technologies is reflected in the practice of learning and teaching, or in the quality of research. Kaleidoscope's central aims are to fill these gaps in research by integrating existing European initiatives to develop a rich, culturally-diverse and coherent theoretical and practical research foundation for research and innovation, and developping new tools and methodologies that operationalize an interdisci
Biostatistics for Medical Product Regulation
Provides a broad understanding of the application of biostatistics in a regulatory context.
Optical Powers: Telescopes and Imaging
Many astronomy curricula tap young people's natural curiosity about the universe. Generating interest in astronomical images is not a problem. The challenge is providing an approach that engages students in scientific thinking and analysis of images that leads to an understanding of the technology of telescopes, optical systems, and imaging cameras. Our effort has been to find a way for teachers with only minimal experience in this area to guide their students efficiently through the maze of
Peer Review of Teaching - Course Portfolio
In this course portfolio, Dan Bernstein reports on changes he has made over three semesters in a psychology course on learning. He has succeeded in getting more students to achieve higher levels of understanding by changing the assessment from short abstract essay questions to problems that asked students to apply concepts in new contexts, and providing web-based opportunities for students to identify what makes some answers better than others. The portfolio includes examples of the assessments
Occupation Focused Conceptual Frameworks
Conceptual frameworks module focused on occupational therapy practice and understanding OT-focused theories for third year OT students. Conceptual frameworks module focused on occupational therapy practice and understanding OT-focused theories for third year OT students. Conceptual frameworks are the core concepts of occupational therapy thinking used in practice by occupational therapy students, therapists and scientists. This module is a continuation of what students have covered in second
Density Currents Activity
This colorful activity is a favorite for students. It is an effective way to show students how salinity and temperature affect the density of water, an important concept in understanding ocean currents. This video is a narrative, step by step demonstration that includes explanations. Run time 02:33.
Natural Resources, the Environment and Ecosystems
This booklet contains several activities that can be used by students to become more aware of how plants, animals, and humans interact within ecosystems, and how one influences the other. The activities can be used singly with other projects, but completion of all activities should give students an understanding of how ecosystems work and how all aspects of an ecosystem are interrelated.
