Assignment 8: Critical Questions

In Course 2 we've looked at:

  • Instructional theories (thematic, cooperative, outcome-based, character education)
  • Approaches to curriculum (knowledge/product, process, praxis, context)
  • Creating the context for students to think about thinking; and to safely learn via classroom management
  • Discuss the educational systems in your community with regards to any two of the topics (or sub-topics) from above. How would you characterize the existing educational systems?
  • From your perspective, what positive changes in education are currently underway with regards to the two topics you've selected?What changes are needed?
  • How are you catalyzing positive change or actively participating in the process?
  • What kind of support/resources exist in your school, or nearby schools to help you catalyze positive change in the two areas you'veselected? (They may be in the form of people, programs, institutional partnerships, monetary resources, internships, service projects,databases of organizational resources available to you.) Describe some of these resources and the concrete ways in which you can connectwith them.
  • What challenges or obstacles do you face regarding the two topics you've discussed in questions 1-4?
  • What kind of help do you need to overcome these obstacles?

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
