Robert Taylor: Network Visionary
[Recorded May 13, 2010] Bob Taylor planned to be a Methodist minister like his father. Instead, he became an evangelist for an idea that changed the world: easy-to-use computers that talk to each other. "I was never interested in the computer as a mathematical device, but as a communication device," Taylor said. Taylor's interests -- and his genius for getting them funded -- helped develop computer networking, the personal computer, and many of the other technologies that drove the global comput

Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 2. Mathematics: A Community Focus
With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students’ home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo

Energy Resources and Systems
Several activities are included to teach and research the differences between renewable and non-renewable resources and various energy resources. The students work with a quantitative, but simple model of energy resources to show how rapidly a finite, non-renewable energy sources can be depleted, whereas renewable resources continue to be available. The students then complete a homework assignment or a longer, in-depth research project to learn about how various technologies that capture energy
