ISKME's Open Educational Practice Rubric

(View Complete Item Description)

This rubric defines a set of open educational practices that help educators to advance a classroom and school culture of open education and to advocate for the potential benefits of open educational resources (OER) in the context of continuous improvement. The rubric is intended to guide educator practice in working with OER to ensure that every student has the opportunity to engage in learning effectively. The rubric supports educators in accessing, curating, evaluating, and adapting OER in response to students’ particular needs, interests, and contexts, to author and share original or remixed resources, and to disseminate approaches to the implementation of those resources for future OER users to benefit from.

Creating OER (Postcard format for Higher Education)

(View Complete Item Description)

Originally designed by Alexander Schnücker für Arbeitsstelle Hochschuldidaktik der Universität Siegen, these postcard-sized resources have been translated into English, and contextualised for Australia. The cards are broken into Theory, Practice, Examples, and Resources, and introduce OER to new practitioners whilst also providing examples and tools for anyone to use. This resource is used to raise staff awareness, to act as a 'ready reference' for practitioners, and as an aid for OER workshops designed to engage staff with OER in their discipline. Please note that this record contains the final version of the cards, and a .zip package with editable files to make it easier for remix.

La robotique vise en générale, l'étude, la conception et la construction de robots ou plus simplement de machines automatiques. Sa pratique est un brassage des savoir-faire techniques et des connaissances scientifiques des domaines de l'électronique, de l'informatique et de la mécanique. Ses domaines d’application sont multiples : l’industrie, la science, l’habitat, la médecine, les services, le transport, l’éducation, le loisir, l’armée… Les robots ou les systèmes automatisés sont présents dans notre environnement quotidien. Les connaissances en robotique ou en intelligence artificielle deviennent donc nécessaires pour mieux comprendre le monde d’aujourd’hui et de demain. Cette formation qui se décline en une série de dix-huit vidéos, regroupées en cinq chapitres, va vous permettre de marquer vos premiers pas dans l’univers de la robotique, pour découvrir les différentes familles des composants d’un robot, comprendre comment fonctionne un robot, et maitriser le plus simplement possible, comment concevoir, construire, et programmer un robot.

Responding to Claims about Alien UFOs: A Brief List of Resources on the Web

(View Complete Item Description)

For decades, the media have given enormous attention to sensational claims that vague lights in the sky are actually extra-terrestrial spacecraft. Recently, there has been a flurry of misleading publicity about UFOs on military photographs. A sober examination of these claims reveals that there is a lot LESS to them than first meets the eye: when there is enough evidence, UFO claims can be explained by terrestrial or celestial phenomena (including lights from human craft and re-entering space junk). This up-to-date guide provides key resources available free on the Web, to help scientists, educators, students, and journalists learn about the skeptical perspective (and the background stories) behind these claims.
