Banksy visited the 2 mile square Jungle Camp, in Calais, just before I did. He left this image. It's Steve Jobs, a man who was a famous, creative, inspiration to millions of people. A man who was also a Syrian refugee, who found a home in the States and embodied the American Dream. Many of the streets he…
The Go-Lab Project (Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School) opens up online science laboratories (remote and virtual labs) for the large-scale use in school education. The overall aim of the project is to encourage young people aged from 10 to 18 to engage in science topics, acquire scientific inquiry skills, and experience the culture of doing science by undertaking active guided experimentation.
To achieve this aim, the Go-Lab project creates the Go-Lab Portal allowing science teachers finding online labs and inquiry learning applications appropriate for their class, combining these in Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs) supporting particular lesson scenarios, and sharing the ILSs with their students. Using the ILSs, the students receive the opportunity to perform personalized scientific experiments with online labs in a structured learning environment.
A joint MIT and Harvard University report, one of the largest investigations of massive open online courses to date, provides new insights into MOOC behaviors: many teachers enroll, learner intentions matter, and cost boosts completion rates.
This fall, MIT Professor Shigeru Miyagawa flipped his classroom as he taught two versions of Visualizing Japan to two distinctive audiences at the same time. He co-taught the massive online open course (MOOC) VJx on edX, as well as the residential version of the course, 21F.027, to students at MIT. The students in the residential class were assigned the MOOC video lectures and quizzes to complement their classroom work.
