In this module you will find the outline of the slide presentation that can be used with this lesson. The slide presentation can be viewed in the link offered at the end of the slide outline. In the first lesson, students will visit a museum in Spain. They will read about its history and type of exhibits that hey hold regularly during the year. Students will be able to visit the "virtual museum" and see actual works of art by Spanish artists as well as other artists. They will gather information based on a series of questions provided and then compile their findings and prepare written and oral presentations to the class. Students will post their findings to the teacher web site on their daily Team Notes (See the powerpoint presentation and outline for an example of how to do this part). Each clue can lead to a different discovery with continuing lessons and/or according to what country and culture students are studying.

El crimen del siglo: the crime of the century

The case of the stolen art

Your team’s tasks are as follows:

Pick up your clues from e-mail on a daily basis;

Follow directions for your team on el crimen del siglo web site;

  • Identify the thief, country of origin, name and dossier (case file);
  • Determine the thief’s location, including city and country (this could change on a daily basis); and
  • Determine the location of the stolen artwork, including the city, country, building and buyer.
  • Record your findings on the Clue Data Sheet on the Web site under your Team Notes .

Clue for day 1:

<<Busqueme en el museo del prado.>>

Core activity

  • Each day or week I would play the criminal and send my students a clue in the form of a riddle or a question.
  • The groups would follow their directions from my Web site and write their information on worksheets (these would be printed from website to turn in at the end of the week).

When the groups have discovered their answer, they write it on their worksheet and post it to the website.

  • In this activity the students would work in groups of three to access my Website and then follow their group’s directions which would take them to another specified site.

Core activity

  • Example: Students would access Web site, find their group name and clue, write down the message on their worksheet and then do a keyword search on a specified search engine to search for “Museo del Prado”
  • Groups then compose, in the target language, a short essay on the worksheet about the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain. Following the directions on the worksheet.

The artwork has been stolen from el prado museum, but what artwork?

<<Go to the place of the “dreams and the windmills” to discover who i am.>>

(answer would be don quijote de la mancha.)

Core activity

  • Example: Students would access Web site, find their group name and clue, write down the message on their worksheet and then do a keyword search on a specified search engine to search for ”Don Quijote de la Mancha”.
  • Groups then compose, in the target language, a short essay on the worksheet about Don Quijote. Following the directions on the worksheet.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

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
