Being a teacher is one of the hardest jobs in the world – fact. How do you entertain a class of thirty rowdy children, who have little or no interest in history or maths
This lesson introduces you to the basic features of PowerPoint which are particularly valuable in the teaching and learning environment. You will learn how to use PowerPoint to capture your ideas in outline form and convert those ideas into multimedia presentations. You will also learn how to use the application to create your own presentations both from scratch and with the help of one of the PowerPoint Wizards. Most people think of a slide show as a way of presenting a series of still images or photographs using a slide projector. If you think about it, however, a slide does not have to be a still image; using PowerPoint it can also be an audio or video clip. For that matter, a slide does not have to be even a picture; it can also be text, an outline of ideas, whatever you want. PowerPoint provides an easy-to-use multimedia presentation production system, which you will no doubt enjoy learning and which you and your students will find useful for individual or group projects of all kinds. In the various courses that you take as an Education major you learn how to design curricula, with lesson plans and unit plans. You also learn methodologies for effective teaching. The better the teacher you are, the more PowerPoint will empower you in your work. Here, then, are the topics that will be covered in this lesson:
Each year, more than 200 million Americans visit public gardens, zoos, aquariums, and arboreta. In the Chicago area, our “living collections” organizations welcome approximately 10 million people annually. We protect many thousands of rare and endangered species, and our scientists conduct research and create practical, effective solutions for preserving wildlife and biodiversity throughout the world. Our educators engage students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, helping to inspire the next generation to continue our work. This past March 3—World Wildlife Day—the Garden joined with the Brookfield Zoo, Lincoln Park Zoo, Shedd Aquarium, and the Morton Arboretum to encourage people to find out more about what we are doing to preserve wildlife and biodiversity, and to get involved. I hope you will join our efforts to promote the conservation of plants and animals, and the healthy habitats on which we all depend. This summer, the Garden offers not only a joyful abundance of plants and gardens in full bloom, but a full schedule of events, with extended summer hours. On Saturday, June 7, we host World Environment Day, offering fun, fascinating facts and activities focusing on the many ways people of all ages can help protect our planet (see the article on pages 6 and 7). In this issue of Keep Growing, you will discover what Garden scientists are doing to save Pitcher’s thistle, a native plant that grows on sand dunes around Lakes Michigan, Huron, and Superior. You will read about how the Garden is partnering with the local community to rescue ravines threatened by erosion, and how we were honored recently for our restoration leadership. You’ll also learn how the Garden’s horticultural therapy certificate program provided a new career path. There is much more in this summer issue, including a profile on the English Walled Garden, which is undergoing renovation (it’s open during the work). We also update you as progress continues on the Kris Jarantoski Campus and the addition to the North Branch Trail. As always, we include information about our many adult education, teacher and student, and youth and family programs and classes. Come to the Garden to enjoy its beauty, and pause to learn something new about plants that you didn’t know before. Knowledge is power, and we can use our knowledge about plants and their critical role in supporting life to advocate for their survival, and ours. As you will learn at World Environment Day, small changes collectively can produce big results. Thank you for coming to your Garden this summer!
Dear Educators: Preprimary thru Elementary age children and our elderly are within the two demographics with the highest incidence of stairway related injuries, most of which happen in the home. The Stairway Manufacturers’ Association members are professional stairbuilders and stair part manufacturers dedicated to reducing stairway accidents through building code reform and education of the industry and the public. This program is part of that effort and presents an opportunity, which you as educators can compliment and reinforce, as our children develop habits essential to life safety. Learning these important lessons will enable them to ―Use Stairs Safely‖ within the built environment and to transfer their knowledge to others by example. This program has been developed by a team of elementary educators and stair professionals and has been classroom tested. We invite your comments and critique to help us improve the program and to learn of the needs of our students and school systems. To contact us simply email SMA@stairways.org . You will find additional information related to stairways and the industry at www.stairways.org . What is the SMA Student Stair Safety Program? This is a program designed for students that can be customized for students of any age to introduce them to the basics of stair safety. The curriculum includes downloadable graphics, lesson plans, coloring/activity book, basic mathematic materials and introduction to stair codes. Why spend classroom time focusing on stairs and stair safety? According to the Home Safety Council's national report on home injuries, the State of Home Safety in America™ (2004), falls accounted for nearly one-third of all unintentional home injury deaths each year. Falls from stairs and steps were the second leading cause of death due to falls. Research has shown that the largest percentage of the falls that result in serious injury are not the result of faulty stair design regulated by building code but rather stairs that are in poor condition or unsafe stair usage that we might significantly affect through education. Not only do stairs present a significant safety risk, but they also present a hands-on learning opportunity for students of all ages to be involved in learning measuring and mathematics.
Biochemistry students have clubbed together to form the Aberystwyth Biochemistry Society, which includes members from all three year groups and members of staff. In addition to organising social events such as bar crawls, trips and movie nights, the group has arranged seminars and has also competed successfully for funding from the UK Biochemical Society to host an All-Wales Student Biochemistry Conference in 2012.

Combining short throw lenses and a ground-breaking ‘Rear Front’ design, the network projectors bring a personal touch to learning and collaboration. A short throw distance makes them perfect for easy interaction. Because the projectors can be placed 60 centimetres from the screen, everyone benefits. The teacher or presenter can stand at the front without being blinded by the light; and the audience enjoys a clear, shadow-free view of large images up to 140 inches in size. and install, it turns any surface into an interactive whiteboard. Use the wireless digital pen to write on-screen or to navigate and control software applications – at the board or as you move around the room. Clutter-free meetings Either desktop or ceiling mounted, the PJ X4240N and PJ WX4240N are perfect for anyone who like to stand at the front and interact with a presentation. The ability to place the projectors as few as 60 centimeters from the screen (on the PJ WX4240N) reduces the problem of lamp glare and on-screen shadows. It also makes them ideal for small meeting or classrooms. Ricoh’s ground-breaking ‘rear front design’ and the option of wireless connectivity on the PJ WX4240N eliminate clutter. Because power and AV connections are at the front of the projectors, there is no need to run cables across the desk surface. Front-facing fan vents direct heat and noise away from the audience to help minimise distractions.
