Didactic considerations

"Man Descended from the apes?" Is probably the most asked question when it comes to the evolution of the people in the public debate. How would you even answer this question? Google has responded to this request almost a million explanations. Also, some scientists are reluctant to answer this question, the term monkey appears too broad. If we like to us humans as resembling gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans and forgets the other nearly 200 species of monkeys living on our planet?Oliver Sandrock holds a chimpanzee's hand. (Source: Alexander Fischer) The scientific consensus is that evolution has no goal towards which it is heading, but rather that all living things to evolve each phase at the same time. So we are descended from an ape-like ancestors, but not of chimpanzees or gorillas.

Enough interesting questions to inspire students for the theme of "evolution." The theme finds its place in the scientific field of education plans.

WOULDN'T IT BE nice if a college professor did prep to bring in hands on activities so that the students could actually roll up their sleaves and make something with their hands. A hands on project. Make it fun and forget group work, go back to individual work and let each person work on their own and create what ever they want according to your extra organized lesson.
Also, Use more music as they enter the room. Set the atmosphere with music for first five minutes. and close by putting on the same music.
Also, use visuals. Go back to the old overhead projector and use it in tandam with the power point projector

  • Avatar AnnG How do you work on old fashion overhead projector?
    Sep 07, 2007 by AnnG | Posted in Other - Electronics

    I picked up an old fashion 3M overhead projector at an auction. I would like to show some of my old family photos on the wall with it at a family reunion as well as some old childhood drawings on construction paper that are done with crayon. Can you tell me how to run this machine so it shows up on a wall. Thanks!!

    • Those old fashioned projectors worked with "transparencies" placed on the base (where the light shines up from) ... it cannot work with "solid" objects since the light cannot shine THROUGH them to be reflected / projected. (All you'll see is the shape / shadow of the object that's blocking the projector's light)

  • Avatar Hikari What type of projector is this?
    May 09, 2011 by Hikari | Posted in Other - Electronics

    My university has it to use for some professors. It looks like a white version of an overhead projector. But, instead of clear transparency sheets and such, a professor writes on a sheet of paper and the projector-projec …a that shows up on a LCD screen electronically. Nothing actually 'projects' with light. It's like if you hooked up a laptop to a presentation screen to view a powerpoint.

    What's the name of this contraption?

    • It is called a document camera. Elmo is the major brand name. It is pretty simple - on the top of the neck is a color video camera pointed down at the base. The camera outputs video to the projector.
