TableTopAudioThanks to Tim Watts for the nudge towards TableTopAudio

Original, 10 minute ambiences and music. Great for an intriguing stmulus for descriptive narrative maybe…

Medieval libraryEach ambience is 10 minutes of non-repeating sound. They are set to loop by default, but you may change this by un-checking the loop button on the player. It is now possible to save gatherings of sound collections. If you have one of these playlists loaded, it will play each track sequentially and then loop the playlist when it finishes the last track. From an abandoned fair, an alchemists lab, a sleeping dragon, a medieval library, royal salon, the forest at night, to an ice cavern and more, these are superb coundscapes.

Inspiring Science Education

Inspiring Science EducationInspSciEd Logo [inspiringscience.eu] is an online portal which hosts innovative learning resources. Combining digital resources with an online delivery tool, it allows teachers to use enquiry-based learning scenarios in their lessons and keep track of the students’ assessment results. The aim is to make science education more imaginative and inspiring for students of all ages.

The UK National Coordinator is Dr Chris North [ise@astro.cf.ac.uk], from Cardiff University.

CInsp Eci Ed webhris can support UK teachers with getting started with the project and the tools. The learning scenarios developed showcase the use of the tools in the classroom or science, technology, engineering, and maths~STEM club, and cover all of science – from particle physics and cosmology to honey bees and school gardens.

SPACE TELESCOPEIf you’re interested in astronomy you can, for example, use a lesson plan that covers the lifecycle of stars, combined with the award-winning online tool “Star in a Box”. Alternatively, you could follow a lesson which investigates the cosmos across electromagnetic spectrum using Chromoscope, and then go on to design your own space telescope.

If those don’t quite meet a teacher’s needs for a specific lesson, then they can copy and edit the lesson plans using the authoring tool. For more information about the project, and how to take part, visit the website (inspiringscience.eu), or contact Chris North at ise@astro.cf.ac.uk or on Twitter here.
