Achieving Public Dialogue
Conditions of Use:

There are a wide range of interactions between 'science' and 'the public'. Examples range from visiting a museum, or indulging in a science-related hobby, to reading a newspaper article about a breakthrough in the techniques of therapeutic cloning. Many of these interactions could be said to be 'passive'. This unit explores the practicalities of the public becoming more 'active' in the direction of science practice by 'two-way' interactions, with dialogue taking place between science and some part of 'the public',

CURSO DE AGENTES MIRINS DISSEMINADORES DA CIDADANIA AMBIENTAL
Rating

Produto Técnico do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Rede Nacional para o Ensino das Ciências Ambientais - Pólo Universidade Federal de Sergipe.

O curso de Agentes Mirins Disseminadores da Cidadania Ambiental é um instrumento para o ensino das ciências ambientais, que versa o envolvimento dos participantes na construção coletiva do processo de ensino-aprendizagem, unindo a teoria-prática acerca dos conhecimentos apreendidos que são pautados nas questões ambientais. O seu desígnio principal é fomentar a sensibilização dos sujeitos para a participação no contexto da sociedade, questionando atitudes, valores, além de propor novas práticas acerca da problemática ambiental.
Trata-se de instrumento educacional para o estimulo a reflexão crítica, bem como, fomentar nos sujeitos a atuação participante e protagonista das problemáticas que englobem ilimitadas realidades. Assim sendo, o público alvo abarca os estudantes e os membros da comunidade ribeirinha, compreendendo que os conteúdos trabalhados podem ser adaptados e desenvolvidos dentro de infinitas realidades de interesse local e global.
Nesse sentido, vislumbramos que os sujeitos ao participarem da construção do vídeo documentário e assistirem ao seu produto final – o vídeo documentário, cuja dedicação em pensar e articular cada etapa, fomente reflexões acerca do que foi trabalhado durante todo processo de construção, sendo assim, capazes de disseminar de forma potente a mensagem de sensibilização das problemáticas socioambientais que precisão ser sanadas no lugar onde vivem. Versará também, provocar impacto visual e emocional nos participantes, pois, na atualidade é comum, os meios de comunicação e as escolas na divulgação e nas análises dos problemas tragam diversas realidades em escalas distantes das vivenciadas no espaço social dos sujeitos, porém assistir a sua realidade fará com que os envolvidos se sintam parte do problema, e posteriormente partir em busca por soluções para sanar as problemáticas encontradas, aproximando aquele que fala daquele que assiste.

Vídeo Documentário construído durante o curso de Agentes Mirins Disseminadores da Cidadania Ambiental por alunos e alunas da Escola Municipal Barquinho Amarelo, localizada no povoado São Braz, Nossa Senhora do Socorro, Sergipe.

College Success
Conditions of Use:

College Success takes a fresh look at what it means, in today’s world, with today’s students, to be successful in college.Although many of the topics included—from study skills to personal health, from test-taking to managing time and money—will look familiar to those who have used student success texts that have been around for many editions, College Success takes a new approach. The focus is on realistic, practical tools for the students who need them. This is a book designed, frankly, for students who may have difficulty with traditional college texts. The style is direct and to the point. Information is presented concisely and as simply as possible. This is not a weighty tome that discusses student success—this is a manual for doing it.College student demographics have changed considerably in recent decades. More than a third of all students enroll not directly from high school but after a delay of some years. More students are working and have families. More students come from varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds. More students are the first in their family to attend college. More students have grown up with electronic media and now read and think in ways different from the previous generation. With these and so many other cultural changes, more students are not well prepared for a college education with the study skills and life skills they need to become successful students.For each student to get the most out of College Success and their college experience they must understand who they are as it relates to college. To that end, in every chapter students explore themselves, because success starts with recognizing your own strengths and weaknesses. Students make their own goals based on this self-assessment, determining what success in college really means for them as individuals. Interactive activities then help students learn the choices available to them and the possibilities for improving their skills. Skills are presented in step-by-step processes, tips for success in manageable highlighted displays. Most important, students always see the value of what they are reading—and how they can begin to apply it immediately in their own lives.College Success is intended for use in Freshmen Orientation, Study Skills or Student Success courses. A 2009 study revealed that currently nationwide, 34% of college freshmen do not return to their college for their sophomore year. This book is designed to help change that.
