5 simple steps for helping to cultivate good self-esteem, including a great TED talk by Guy Winch.
ESTE PRODUTO EDUCACIONAL FOI PRODUZIDO A PARTIR DE UM ESTUDO DE PESQUISA DE MESTRADO,VOLTADO A CAPACITAÇÃO DE PROFESSORES DA EDUCAÇÃO BASICA NA MODALIDADE ESPECIAL.O QUAL FOI PRODUZIDA UMA SEQUENCIA DIDÁTICA COMO ESTRATEGIA DIDÁTICA PARA SE TRABALHAR O TEMA ARBORIZAÇÃO URBANA E EDUCAÇÃO AMBIENTAL.
This collection focuses on a rapidly evolving field in which the study of both species-specific and ubiquitous aging mechanisms informs the biological process of aging. Yet the field is not without substantial controversy, differing views arise as we come to understand aging across model systems - from bacteria to humans.
The content of this lesson develops the link between gene expression, explores the functions and specialization of various brain regions, and compares studies of the brain at the level of genes, neurons, and regions. It also introduces open research questions in the world of neuroscience. Students are guided through a data set that is under active development and are encouraged to consider current and future research.
The datasets used in the virtual experiment portion of this unit comes from Allen Brain Map, a group of open datasets encompassing gene expression in the brain, visual behavior, properties of neurons, neural development, and more. Students will learn what kind of data is collected in research settings and begin learning how it can be used.
The Allen Institute is a biological sciences nonprofit located in Seattle, WA, with focus research areas in neuroscience, cell biology, and immunology. The Institute shares all of its data and analysis tools freely with the scientific community. In addition to the research applications, educators can use the open data and tools to provide real-world and cutting-edge science experiences for their students. Because the Allen Institute shares all of its data openly, students are able to conduct virtual labs and independent research right in their browsers and generate new scientific insights. Educator resources are geared towards instructors at the high school and college level. Explore virtual events for educators and for students, turnkey virtual labs, and more. All resources and virtual events are free. Additional educator resources are available at alleninstitute.org/learn.
This resource is a Hands-On course to teach Apps Development to students who may not have any programming knowledge. This course has no pre-requisites. It’s time to add the 4th R – Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic and algoRithmic thinking. In a world where the majority of new jobs require science, technology and math skills, it is time our Liberal Arts majors get IT (Information Technology)! While employers recognize and value the importance of liberal education and the liberal arts, they also want liberal arts graduates who are not digitally challenged. Many employers report a “skills gap” as they have trouble finding recent graduates qualified with ample digital skills to fill various positions. Meanwhile, a national educational movement in computer coding instruction is growing at lightning speeds in schools across the US and many consider coding more like a basic life skill (which might someday lead to a great job) rather than an extracurricular activity. App Inventor (AI) serves to narrow this skills gap and increase the versatility of students to become active creators of technology and “digitally” ready for the workplace rather than just being passive consumers of technology. Sales of hand-held devices (smartphones, tablets and phablets) are exploding. These on-line, social, and increasingly mobile computing devices are ubiquitous and offer visual, tactile and personal experiences as never before. Mobile devices in our education landscape are digital and portable - with multimedia capabilities to access the Internet, and are drastically changing the ways we teach and learn. Developing applications for such devices enables digital natives to experience mobile technology as active creators rather than just passive consumers of technology.

The present invention relates generally to neutronic reactors and, more particularly, to novel articles of manufacture used in and in combination with such reactors, and to the combination of such novel articles of manufacture with neutronic reactors.
ARDC curate a collection of resources for researchers, librarians and eResearch professionals. The topics covered by resources and guides range from ethics and sensitive data to managing data; from research data policy and licensing to training and teaching research data management skills.
This OER explores the issue of Banned Books during the Scientific Revolution. It includes links to high-quality primary sources from the Scientific Revolution. It is a product of the OU Academy of the Lynx, developed in conjunction with the Galileo's World Exhibition at the University of Oklahoma.
I have always been struck by the beauty and mystery of the astronomical universe. Recently I decided that it might be good to evoke these qualities in some way that might reach our students. And then I remembered that, many years ago, I had heard a piece of music that effected me in the same way. So I put them together. You can see the result at

Ever need to help a researcher share and archive their research data? Would you know how to advise them on managing their data so it can be easily shared and re-used? This workshop will cover best practices for collecting and organizing research data related to the goal of data preservation and sharing. We will focus on best practices and tips for collecting data, including file naming, documentation/metadata, quality control, and versioning, as well as access and control/security, backup and storage, and licensing. We will discuss the library’s role in data management, and the opportunities and challenges around supporting data sharing efforts. Through case studies we will explore a typical research data scenario and propose solutions and services by the library and institutional partners. Finally, we discuss methods to stay up to date with data management related topics.
This materials have been compiled to support an introductory Biotechnology course for high school students.
Unit 1 covers the introduction and about the drawings I have my student do before introducing blueprint reading. Since I only have a short time to cover blueprint this gives them a little better understanding of what blueprints are and how they are used.
Unit 2 is a short video covering basic concepts of blueprint reading,
Unit 3 can be used for lectures over blueprinting. It uses the website WikiHow and it has three parts with several sections in each. It has diagram included with each section, It also explains various places one can learn more about blueprint reading,

Data Management Expert Guide
This guide is designed by European experts to help social science researchers make their research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).
You will be guided by different European experts who are - on a daily basis - busy ensuring long-term access to valuable social science datasets, available for discovery and reuse at one of the CESSDA social science data archives.
You can download the full DMEG for your personal study offline (DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3820473). PDFs for every single chapter are also available for being printed as handouts for training.
We are a group of volunteer CSD scientists and clinicians passionate about bridging the gap between scientific research and clinical practice.
While there are many ways to increase research access and awareness, our 2020–2021 goal centers squarely on self-archiving and "green" open access options.
WHY? Our field relies on high-quality, peer-reviewed research to support evidence-based practice. Yet, much of our work remains inaccessible to practitioners, researchers, and people in the community who are not affiliated with universities or national organizations.
By teaching CSD scientists how to self-archive, and providing them with the support needed to make it happen, we can empower our colleagues to make research accessibility the norm in our field. Because when free, legal versions of our field's best research is made available to the public, it can improve the sustainable value of all of our work.
