Here is a vidoeo of Vivian Wing, l’Oreal-UNESCO for Women in Science Award.

Professor Wing says:

The holy grail of solar energy conversion is really to split water to hydrogen and oxygen because, as I mentioned, this would create solar fuels and when you burn hydrogen and oxygen the only product you have besides energy is water which is really environmentally friendly“.

I created a forum discussion for this topic. Go there and participate!

Wordsift: Visualize Texts

Posted in Internet Tools by Josep Jutglar Company |

WordSift helps anyone easily sift through texts — just cut and paste any text into WordSift and you can engage in a verbal quick-capture! The program helps to quickly identify important words that appear in the text.

It also includes other functions, such as visualization of word thesaurus relationships (incorporating the amazing Visual Thesaurus® that we highly recommend in its own right) and Google® searches of images and videos. With just a click on any word in the Tag Cloud, the program displays instances of sentences in which that word is used in the text.

Reading comprehension research suggests that previewing text is a useful strategy for improving comprehension. Using WordSift to identify the key vocabulary, and playing with the images and to use the example source sentence feature to “skim” the text can help students who might otherwise struggle with the complexity of the text.
