Lesson 2: Moving Plates Description: Students will use the Internet to access information about plate tectonics theory, and will partake in related activities. Students will be expected to demonstrate synthesis of concepts. Outcomes: Enduring understanding: -The surface of the earth is broken into plates whose size and position change over time. -The edges of the plates are sights of intense geologic activity. (Addresses Standard 1a) By the end of the lesson, students will demonstrate understanding of the following concepts:
  • Each plate is made of continental crust or oceanic crust, or both.
  • All the continents were initially one, called Pangaea
  • Evidence exists to support continental drift includes fossils, glaciation, and geological patterns
  • Continents move because magma moves in convection circles
The students will demonstrate this understanding by creating a map of the plates; note-taking; locating pictures of Pangaea in source books; putting together a continental puzzle showing proof of continental drift based on fossil and other evidence; participating in an experiment demonstrating convection currents; and making a box to demonstrate sea floor spreading. Online and Offline Activities: Students will access the website

The Government of Japan provides cooperation to developing countries through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) by various methods, one of which is called "Third Country Training Programme (TCTP)" and has been carried on since 1974. Within this scheme, a governmental organization from the host country may organize a training programme for other developing countries on the specified subjects with assistance provided by the Japanese Government. aid guideline of JICA Turkey Office, e.g., "capacity building of development assistance to the neighboring developing countries", Japanese Government has decided to implement JICA's TCTP in Turkey in collaboration with the Government of Turkey. Main objective of the program is to form a basis for the technical cooperation among the developing countries participating in the program and to provide training, considering their specific conditions and needs.

Mailbase lists
electronic discussion lists for the UK higher education and research community. However for those of you new to academia or the wonders of electronic communication we have compiled a list of discussion groups that should be of some relevance to geographers. Mailbase discussion lists allow you to talk with other academics via electronic mail, to collaborate on projects, announce conferences, arrange meetings, or just keep in touch with colleagues in your subject area. Once established they work by someone sending an email message to the list which is then sent to all list members. They are very simple to use, all you need is email. The administration of the list is carried out by the list owner (who will also be able to provide more information about the remit of the list) and supported by the mailbase service which is located at the University of Newcastle. You can find out more about Mailbase at . It is worth noting that some of the lists appear to have similar remits, a brief glance through the list archives should help you to determine which list will be of most relevance to you. List archives can be accessed via: This page provides a search device, type in any of the list names below and you will have access to information about the list and its archives.

This Digest defines collaborative learning then discusses five experimental courses that have incorporated collaborative learning.
Collaborative learning is the instructional use of small groups. Its goal is to allow students to work together to maximize their own and others' learning. The traditional teacher's role is expanded to include facilitating and coordinating the student groups, which then assume part of the responsibility for instruction. There are five essential components that must be present for small-group learning to be truly collaborative: clear, positive interdependence among students

, Bates College The Botany Database, developed by Barry Logan (Bowdoin College) and Robert Thomas (Bates College) in collaboration with the Educational Technology Center (Bowdoin College), was designed to provide students with access to images (along with supporting information) used in lecture and laboratory sessions of botany courses. The WEB-based database has been used extensively in several courses at Bates and Bowdoin Colleges and student feedback has been positive.
In the past year, we improved the Botany Database by initiating a comprehensive floristic survey of Bowdoin College's Coastal Studies Center (directed by Jessica Brooks, a Bowdoin College undergraduate), adding records associated with Prof. Thomas' "Plants and Human Affairs" course, incorporating images from the Kate Furbish collection, and rendering the "Search" tool more specific. In the coming year, we plan to develop a quiz tool, allowing students to examine their own knowledge of selected plant species. We also will include "Quick-time VR” technology that enables a viewer to "move around" three-dimensional images of plants or plant parts from species representative of major taxa. We will also enhance the Botany Database aesthetically with a new Introductory page and overall appearance.

This site facilitates a new age of COLLABORATIVE science projects for grades K through 12 to parallel how professional scientists from around the world work together. Unlike almost all other project sites, most projects outlined here have never been done before.
  • This will help YOUNG SCIENTISTS TO WORK TOGETHER with other students, who live in different ecosystems or have special equipment, supplies or circumstances that can be shared. Resulting data may then be synthesized for joint reports. There are now, as EXAMPLES some students making use of different oceans in a sanitation study, while others are designing airplanes and need different altitudes, and younger classes are learning about sun angles and seasons, and are comparing notes with other classes around the world. These students hope to present their results in the same way senior scientists do - with many authors often from far-flung locales. Interested students are encouraged to complete the REGISTRATION PAGE to facilitate their being connected with other students for these collaborative projects.
