Transcript: Writing Up Conclusion-What have I learnt about myself? I am able to condense large chunks of information down into relevant pieces. Good time management skills Definitely want to pursue a career in medicine There was a wealth of information available on stem cells and thalassaemia I was able to gather information from a variety of sources I was able to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of the success of this project There is a research group called the BloodPharma My EPQ Journey 'Assess the potential impact of stem cells, both embryonic and induced pluripotent, on the long-term treatment of beta thalassaemia major.' I have a strong interest in the field of medicine and hope to study it at university A relation with beta thalassaemia major- curious to see what current research was going on into the treatment which they could possibly benefit from Attended a lecture on producing stem cells The Project Choice of Topic Sources of research: Scientific Papers e.g. Yamanaka, S. (2006). Induction of Pluripotent Stem Cells from Mouse Embryonic and Adult Fibroblast Cultures by Defined Factors. Cell. 126, 663-676. TV programmes e.g. The Cure on Aljazeera Books e.g. The fundamentals of the Stem Cell Debate Websites e.g. NHS website Leaflets e.g. NHS screening program leaflets Interviewing someone with thalassaemia Attending lectures e.g. Cambridge University Research Main Findings A lot of the information was very technical and of high level scientific basis. It took a long time to simplify it. Although there was a lot of information on stem cells and thalassaemia there was not a lot linking the two together. The reason being that the reasearch is currently going on. Problems and successes

Transcript: The idea of Multimedia in the classroom Lessons 3,4 Children are to write an information report about the natural disaster they have chosen. They can use an application or software to write up their information reports. Resources: - Computers - Ipad’s Lesson 5 Children are to write a script up for a news group, consisting of news anchor, reporter at the event site, people from the incident, and a reporter with the people from the incident. Children are to post scripts once complete in to the folder on Edmodo. Resources: - Application through Ipad’s - Computers Many teachers go straight to computers or smart boards, though they do not understand how to use the devices properly In many schools around NSW now have the system ‘BYOD’ – Bring Your Own Device, this allows children to use their own devices and make a connect to home There are endless opportunities when it comes to using multimedia in the classroom it all depends on the knowledge on how to use these devices. When we think of Multimedia in the classroom what is the first thing you think of? Daniela Berghofer The Breaking News Project Don’t forget this is just one example of how to use different multimedia devices within a classroom setting. There are endless applications, websites and devices children can use to incorporate literacy and other subjects in their everyday learning. Lessons 6,7,8 Children are to make a breaking news video using an application, this could be done on IMovie, on the children’s Ipad’s if preferred. The children can use the cameras on their Ipad’s to film their videos. Resources: - Ipad’s - Microphone - Computers - Green screen Lesson 9 Children are going to present their Breaking News videos to the rest of the class. After their Breaking News has been presented Resource - Smart Board - Speakers My Resource: Breaking News Project The digital, Multimedia Literacy classroom: Using Technology to creatively support and develop literacy in the Stage 3 Classroom. My resource is a collection of lessons that incorporate multimedia devices in a variety of ways. Lessons 1, 2 Children are set into small groups to research about a natural disaster. The children can use the devices to research the natural disasters. The teacher needs to explain this is for the News Breaking Project where they will be making a video as if they are to be presenting the news. Resources: - Ipad’s - Computers Topic of Choice: Thank you for listening

Transcript: What is Earth Science? Introduction 1 Earth Science is a combination of FOUR branches of science Geology Oceanograpy Meteorology Astronomy The study of the history, structure, processes, and composition of the Earth's solid surface down to Earth's center Geology Geology The study of all aspects of Earth's oceans Oceanography Oceanography The study of Earth's atmosphere, including weather and climate Meteorology Meteorology The study of the universe -- all matter, time, energy, and space Astronomy Astronomy What is Earth Science? Define the term "Earth Science" in your own words. What is Earth Science? Brainstorm with a partner--write a list of AT LEAST five skills an Earth Scientist might need. What skills do scientists need to study the Earth? Observation, Inference, Measurement, Classification Skills of a Scientist 2 #1 Observation A perception of the environment by one or more of the five senses--taste, touch, sight, hearing, and smell A. The rock came from the Cambrian period. B. The rock is round. C. The rock was made from volcanic ash. D. The rock is over 5000 years old. Which of these is an OBSERVATION? A. The rock came from the Cambrian period. B. The rock is round. C. The rock was made from volcanic ash. D. The rock is over 5000 years old. Which of these is an OBSERVATION? #2 Inference An interpretation of an observation -- a proposed cause, conclusion, or explanation for what was observed. A. The rock is shiny. B. The rock cuts glass. C. The rock is over 5000 years old. D. The rock reacts with acid. Which of these is an inference? A. The rock is shiny. B. The rock cuts glass. C. The rock is over 5000 years old. D. The rock reacts with acid. Which of these is an inference? #3 Measurement A measurement is a means of expressing an observation with more accuracy or precision -- all measurements of basic quantities are made by a direct comparison to certain accepted standard units of measurement. A. Length B. Volume C. Mass What units are used to measure each of the following quantities? A. Length -- meter (m) B. Volume -- liter (L) C. Mass -- gram (g) What units are used to measure each of the following quantities? #4 Grouping together living or nonliving things with similar characteristics -- scientists group together similar observations or inferences to look for patterns among events in the environment. Classification A. Scientists grow colonies of bacteria to study reproduction. B. Scientists assign a genus and species to each living thing to look for evolutionary relationships. C. Scientists use water displacement to determine the volume of an irregular object. D. Scientists use instruments to observe things that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Which of these is an example of classification? A. Scientists grow colonies of bacteria to study reproduction. B. Scientists assign a genus and species to each living thing to look for evolutionary relationships. C. Scientists use water displacement to determine the volume of an irregular object. D. Scientists use instruments to observe things that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Which of these is an example of classification? Percent Deviation also known as Percent Error Why might it be important to know the percent deviation of a measurement? Percent Deviation (or Percent Error) Describes the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of a measurement compared to a known standard. NOTE: This formula is NOT LISTED in the Earth Science Reference Tables Percent Deviation (or Percent Error) Describes the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of a measurement compared to a known standard. NOTE: This formula is NOT LISTED in the Earth Science Reference Tables Percent Deviation Formula: % deviation = difference from accepted value / accepted value x 100% Percent Deviation (or Percent Error) A student measures the mass of an object as 127.5 grams and the accepted value is 125.0 grams. What is the student's percent deviation? Example #1 A student measures the mass of an object as 127.5 grams and the accepted value is 125.0 grams. What is the student's percent deviation? % deviation = amount of deviation (difference) / accepted value x 100% difference from accepted value = 127.5 g - 125.0 g = 2.5 g % deviation = 2.5 g / 125.0 g x 100 = 2.0% Example #1 A student measures the density of a rock as 2.0 g/mL. The accepted value is 2.2 g/mL. What is the student's percent deviation? Practice A student measures the density of a rock as 2.0 g/mL. The accepted value is 2.2 g/mL. What is the student's percent deviation? % deviation = 2.2 - 2.0 / 2.2 x 100 = 0.2 / 2.2 x 100 = 9% Practice What is the difference between these terms? ACCURACY VS. PRECISION ACCURACY VS. PRECISION Accuracy refers to the closeness of a measured value to a standard or known value. Ex. if you obtain a weight measurement of 3.2 kg for a given substance, but the actual or known weight is 10 kg, then your measurement is not accurate. Accuracy Accuracy Precision refers to the closeness of two or more measurements to each other. Ex.
