5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads And How To Correct Them | Fluency21 – Committed Sardine Blog
“Ed tech implementation in any classroom should be regarded as a continuing journey of revision and fine-tuning, and not just a destination to reach. 1:1 iPad programs can be useful and engaging to students if monitored properly, because mistakes can still be made. You can read about this more in the following Edudemic article written by Tom Daccord. Tom outlines five of the most common errors that schools make in incorporating the iPads versatility in classrooms, and offers ways to get around them so that both students and teachers can get the most out of the tablets amazing potential as an instructional tool. Read on for more …”
Tissue engineer, MBA and Senior TED Fellow Nina Tandon is growing artificial hearts and bones. To do that, she needs new ways of caring for artificially grown cells—techniques she’s developed by the simple but powerful method of copying their natural environments.Nina studies electrical signaling in the context of tissue engineering, with the goal of creating “spare parts” for human implantation and/or disease models. She is an electrical and biomedical engineer at Columbia University’s Laboratory for Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering, and adjunct professor of Electrical Engineering at the Cooper Union, teaching a “Bioelectricity” class. She’s published in Nature and Lab on a Chip, and Fast Company named her one of their 100 most creative people in business.After receiving a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Cooper Union, Nina spent her early career in telecom Avaya Labs and transitioned into biomedical engineering via her Fulbright scholarship in Italy, where she worked on an electronic nose used to “smell” lung cancer. Nina’s studied electrical stimulation for cardiac tissue engineering at MIT and Columbia, has consulted at McKinsey and Company, and now continues her research on electrical stimulation for broader tissue-engineering applications.
