Perspective is All In How You Frame Your Experience

Addendum to Concordia Lesson

Is perspective one of the “liquid skills” that Taylor connects with STEAM Learning>

Peter Taylor (2016) writes that  “Given the rapid emergence of digital technologies, artificial intelligence, DNA mapping, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, biotechnology and the ‘internet of things’, business and industry leaders are calling for graduates with liquid skills that enable them to adapt to a fluid working landscape throughout their lives; to prepare for jobs that currently do not exist, but that will be essential to the nation’s economic wellbeing. In this section, you will reflect on how to integrate STEAM activities and graphic organizers into your content instruction.”

Taylor (2016) connects STEAM education with “liquid skills.” that also mirror many 21st Century Skills. These liquid skills include “the ability to work with others, verbal communication, creative and critical thinking, active listening and active learning, and a disposition towards lifelong learning” (Infosys, 2016).

Perspective STEAM Activity:

Take a place piece of cardstock, the side of an Amazon delivery box, an envelope, or any piece of paper to use as your frame. Trace a cut a smaller square in the center of your cardstock frame.

Look through the cardstock lens for a new perspective.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 10

April 15, the horrendous American Tax Day is next Wednesday.

On a happier and more educational note, April 15th is also the birthday of Leonardo daVinci  (April 15,1452 – May 2,1519).

Our Weekend Ed. Quote features this wisdom from Leonardo daVinci:

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” ~Leonardo daVinci

Pink Moon April 7 and 8, 2020

    pinkmoonTonight brings the brightest moon of 2020!

Tonight’s Supermoon is also known as a “Pink Moon,” the first full moon of spring. Native Americans named this moon because of the pink phlox that blooms around this time. It has special names in other countries too such as Bak Poya, Egg Moon, Full Sprouting Grass Moon, Growing Moon or the Full Fish Moon. STEM Alert: Not all Pink Moons are also Supermoons. A Moon has to come within 90% of its closest approach to Earth (or 224,865 miles) to be formally defined as a Super Moon.

STEM Alert: The Pinkish hue (sometimes more orange if you are in a city), is from photons passing through dusty particles in the Earth’s atmosphere. Earth’s atmosphere of oxygen and nitrogen filters the bluer wavelengths (through refraction) of moonlight so your eyes may see more of a pink tone. Full moons also have some tide effects.

If you need a break from being inside, tonight’s the night!

Best Hero of the Day ~ Dr. Stephen Richardson and Jim McGurran

To combat a potential availability or shortage of ventilators due to the COVID-19 pandemic calls for “MacGvyer style” engineering.

Dr. Stephen Richardson, Cardiac Anesthesiologist at the University of Minnesota and his best friend Jim McGurran, biomedical engineer redesigned a CPR machine to function as a one-arm robot ventilator.

The Cost? $150.00. Listen to their brilliance …

 

“This allows those patients who would otherwise not have an opportunity to survive to survive it gives people a chance and that’s what this is all about.” ~Dr. Stephen Richardson, University of Minnesota.
