Empowering Students to Design the Change They Want to See in the World

Empowering Students to Design the Change They Want to See in the World | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
The answer to empowering our learners by giving them purpose and inspiring their passion may be right under our noses. In play, one group of children may use dozens of LEGO pieces to recreate the excavator they found fascinating on their neighborhood walk, while another group of students uses Minecraft to create a fireworks display in honor of the Chinese New Year. Taken together, students learn the science and engineering behind simple machines or the importance of cultural practices in social studies, while learning how to collaborate with others and create something better together. In each instance, students use elements of design thinking to cocreate and problem solve, engaging in thoughtful dialogue and continuous iteration. This play can be made into so much more if educators guide students by demonstrating the utility of the content they're learning and inviting students into the process of meaning making.

Most plastics in our recycling bins aren't getting recycled, new report finds

Most plastics in our recycling bins aren't getting recycled, new report finds | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
It's the latest chapter in the unravelling of the American recycling system, which started when China stopped accepting U.S. recycling in 2018.

"This survey confirms what many news reports have indicated since China restricted plastic waste imports two years ago — that recycling facilities across the country are not able to sort, sell, and reprocess much of the plastic that companies produce," Jan Dell, independent engineer and founder of The Last Beach Cleanup, who led the survey of plastics acceptance policies told Greenpeace in a news release on the subject.

Gingko biloba trees guard a secret fountain of youth

Gingko biloba trees guard a secret fountain of youth | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
Researchers wanted to know what gives these trees their longevity. They compared dozens of ginkgo trees ranging in age from 15 to 667 years old to see what helped them live so long. Their findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science.

"In humans, as we age, our immune system begins to start to not be so good," study coauthor Richard Dixon, a biologist at the University of North Texas, told The New York Times. But in a way, "the immune system in these trees, even though they're 1,000 years old, looks like that of a 20-year-old."
