Digital native fallacy: Teachers still know better when it comes to using technology Monday October 20th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(Springer) Members of today's younger Net Generation aren't more tech savvy than their teachers just because they were born into a world full of computers. In fact, if it weren't for the coaxing and support of their educators, many students would never use their electronic devices for more than playing games or listening to music. So reports a new study in the journal Educational Technology Research & Development, published by Springer.

Winning by losing Monday October 20th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(Vienna University of Technology) The more energy you put in, the more light you get out -- this general rule does not apply to the coupled laser systems studied at the Vienna University of Technology and Washington University in St. Louis. Increasing the energy can switch the laser off, reducing its energy may switch it on. Paradoxical laser coupling effects could be used for opto-electronics or opto-mechanics.

(Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research) Gerald F. Joyce is elected to the Institute of Medicine, the US National Academies of Sciences announced following the IOM's 44th annual meeting. Joyce is perhaps best known as one of the inventors of directed evolution technology and, more recently, for creating the first self-replicating RNA enzyme.

In between red light and blue light Monday October 20th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ) Diatoms play an important role in water quality and in the global climate. They generate about one fourth of the oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere and perform around one-quarter of the global CO2 assimilation, i.e. they convert carbon dioxide into organic substances. Their light receptors are a crucial factor in this process. Researchers at Leipzig University and UFZ have now discovered that blue and red light sensing photoreceptors control the carbon flow in ...
