Nikki is a veteran educator, librarian, Educational Technology Facilitator and ISTE Librarians Community President Elect. It is Sunday, December 31st, 2017 and welcome to Episode 208 of TechTalk4Teachers, I am Tom Grissom. Welcome to TechTalk4Teachers the present about instructing and learning with technology. In working with her, I questioned if changing the dimensions of text or using Readability features can be of profit. I showed her the Reader feature on the iPad since she has one. She immediately reacted with horror, “However we misplaced the photographs!” It turns out she needs the images that accompany textbook or science articles as they assist anchor her studying.
STEM subjects аrе a pure fіt fоr Prоjесt-Bаѕеd Lеаrnіng (PBL). Intеgrаtеd STEM еduсаtіоn соmеѕ аlіvе within the сlаѕѕrооm аnd college students’ minds wіth Prоjесt-Bаѕеd Lеаrnіng. Bу еngаgіng іn precise рrоjесtѕ, college students are mоrе іmmеrѕеd іn lеаrnіng. Thеу apply their abilities tо a rеаl-lіfе ѕіtuаtіоn rаthеr thаn саlсulаtе rеѕроnѕеѕ tо a рrоblеm іn a tеxtbооk. PBL rеԛuіrеѕ ѕtudеntѕ tо rеѕеаrсh, brainstorm аnd dеѕіgn ѕоlutіоnѕ. PBL usually includes рrоjесt tеаmѕ, whісh hеlр construct ѕkіllѕ lіkе рrоjесt planning, communication, and collaboration that аrе wanted fоr a ѕuссеѕѕful саrееr іn any fіеld.
CRISPR stands for clustered, commonly interspaced quick palindromic repeats. Francisco Mojica, spotted these repeats when he was looking on the genome of a microbe known as Haloferax mediterranei. He found that there have been 14 DNA sequences that repeated themselves and that they read the identical forwards as they did backwards. Utterly transfixed by these repeating items he committed himself to learning extra about their function and origins. In his lab, Franciso made the discovery that CRISPR was part of a sophisticated immune system found in micro organism.
Biomedical engineering fuses engineering rules with biology to build life-saving medical technologies akin to synthetic organs. Although biomedical engineering has had a protracted historical past, the most recent groundbreaking applied sciences are a result of advanced schooling in STEM subjects. Synthetic hearts and iPills, for instance, are two biomedical engineering breakthroughs that have restored hope for critically ill patients. Biomedical engineering students in STEM discover ways to develop and preserve improved medical systems, and perform research on synthetic organs, implanted units, prosthetics and radiation remedy.
CONCERNING THE SPEAKER: Danny Atsmon, an expert in superior driver-assistance methods (ADAS) and deep learning, is the CEO at Cognata Ltd. He has been within the enterprise of launching excessive-tech merchandise for more than 20 years. Earlier than joining Cognata, Danny served as HARMAN’s (now Samsung) director of ADAS and senior director of machine studying. He co-founded two startups, Picitup and iOnRoad, the latter of which uses a cellphone’s native camera to detect autos in front of a automotive. Danny also holds several patents and has received many prime industry awards, including the CES award, CTIA award, Microsoft Suppose Subsequent, and Qualcomm QPrize. Danny has a Bachelor of Science in physics from Tel Aviv University, and is a graduate of the Israeli Protection Forces Haman Talpiot program, the place he served in the elite Unit 8200.
