Classroom Inclusion and Learning

Participants share their own experiences as students, exploring different ways people are made to feel included in, orexcluded from, the learning process. The existence of different learning needs and the necessity for a wide range of teaching styles emerge.

Student Fishbowl

A student fishbowl gives pre-service and in-service educators an opportunity to hear the experiences, ideas, and critiques ofcurrent students while giving the students an opportunity to be active in the dialogue on multicultural education and education transformation.

Multicultural Awareness Quiz

Critical thinking about all media and information is an essential aspect of multicultural learning. Test your understanding and your students' or participants' understanding of race, gender, andsocioeconomic class with this activity, leading seamlessly into a dialogue on stereotypes, misinformation and prejudices, and how theyinform teaching and learning.

Facilitating the Difficult Dialogue: Role Plays

Teachers are often hesitant to introduce topics like racism, sexism, classism, and heterosexism in the classroom because theirtraining has not prepared them to handle the issues and exchanges that may result. This activity provides participants an opportunity to sharestories of when discussions about these topics took an unexpected turn, and to generate ideas about how to address these circumstances in the future.

Assignment 4: Teacher Reflection

  • Provide a weekly journal evaluating your progress. Take about 1 hour for each week to reflect on:
    • The clarity of your directions
    • The level of engagement and interest of your students
    • Areas of success
    • Areas of challenge
    • What you would do to enhance or improve this project next time
    • What information do you need in order to grow professionally in this area
    When you are finished, you will have 2 journal entries of approximately 4-5 paragraphs for each week.
  • Share your journal with your learning circle.
  • Choose one thing you read about in someone else's journal and reflect upon it in 2-3 paragraphs.

Assignment 5, part 1 of 3: collaborating to solve problems

In Course 3, we explored Problem-Based Learning. (You may wish to review that information.)

Please test the following lesson plan, either in your class, in an after-school program, or on the weekends. The instructionshere are quite sophisticated. Please make the appropriate decisions regarding the capacity of your students to handle the work. Withmodification, this activity can be adapted for young people 8 years old and up. This activity requires 30-60 minutes.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
