Smart BOARDS

San Jorge School has acquired the latest supportive technology in classroom education. These devices are called Smart BOARDS. These boards are highly-interactive, fully-supportive tools for the classroom.

The Smart Boards will be located in several areas of the school. One of them has been set up in the Science Laboratory. It will be there to support teachers in showing and interacting with all the information that contemporary science has to offer: pictures, animations, videos, etc. Everything with a simple touch.

I'm sure the students will be thrilled when they see and appreciate the benefits of these tools in action during their regular classes.

The teachers at San Jorge School have received training to learn how to excel in the use of these boards, and to take advantage of the extensive tools, software and applications that the Smart Boards have to offer.

Integrative Project: "Scientific Minds in Action"

Last year, San Jorge School organized the integrative project called "The Reading Plan". For this year, the integrative project is called "Scientific Minds in Action".

The first meeting for this project to be presented on August 28th and 29th of this year was held this morning with the science teachers.

Consecutive meetings will be held in the coming days and weeks in order to organize and plan all the guidelines, topics and activities that each grade will have to present for the central days.

The purpose of this year is to integrate all the areas of knowledge into the scientifc point of view according to grades of study, which will soon receive all the topics to be developed by the groups of students. This activity will challenge the creativity of students to involve all the areas of knowledge dictated at school.

We have high hopes for all the production that will come from those Scientific Minds in Action.

We'll keep you informed!

Warming Waters may make Antarctica Hospitable to Sharks

It has been 40 million years since the waters around Antarctica have been warm enough to sustain populations of sharks and most fish, but they may return this century due to the effects of global warming. If they do, the impact on Antarctic ecology could be serious.

San Jorge School

This blog is also a tool for my students at San Jorge School in Miraflores, Lima-PERU.
Students: You'll be able to find classes, home works, dates, tests solved, and test results per grade, as well as post any questions or comments related to your Science classes.
Enjoy!

Why should I have a Blog?


A Blog or Weblog, is a tool to share information of any kind. This information can be written, in audio, in video, or in a combination of them.

Welcome to Learning and Science - A blog to learn and to share science knowledge


This blog is an open forum to sharing, and obtaining Science information or knowledge directly related to Life.

You'll be able to find school classes from San Jorge School, news, pictures, links, opinions, etc.
Basically, a space where you can interact with current and relevant biotopics.

I've created this blog because I believe in sharing information, and giving opinion about the topics you're interested in.
