I'm going to see if I can build some solar powered things this summer to minimize my electricity use, such as a solar oven and phone charger, but there's only so far off-grid I can take ye old suburban house.
This is very interesting research! Many personal trainers creating diets for clients take lots and lots of time and effort to create each individual meal plan. You said there is no "one size fits all" which makes a lot of sense and is probably why these trainers take so long to make these personalized diets. It's because they have to make it especially for each person. Wish I could say more, but I'm not completely educated on this subject. Anyways, great work and good luck!
I think that your project is very interesting! It is something that not a lot of people our age really think about studying, so it is so cool to see all the different things you found. I really like how you talked about the different videos and had the story about the man with no arms. I find I can understand it more with the actual real life stories. Good job!
I really liked your presentation on utopias and dystopias. It made me think if during our lives, a utopia will be a real place to live in. I'm looking forward to seeing where you will go with this topic.
Great presentation Jess! It was definitely interesting to see you present to us about what you have learned so far. For some reason I found the "attempted utopias" slightly creepy. Maybe that is because I am imagining freakishly happy people who make apple pie all the time. Nonetheless a very good presentation and interesting research.
Quite right,agriculture is a backbone to Kenyans and the economy,it's really nice to see you put up a good research,I like the video and have learnt something on sugarcanes I didnt know,I also have a garden which I plant flowers of different types which is beautiful,thanks desi for that little lesson and keep up!
First of all, awesome project! It seems in the West there is a new generation emerging where there are stay at home fathers and woman going into a trade as a profession. A website that could help you out is Because I am a girl. Good luck on your research.
It's interesting to think about why gender stereotypes exist at all. If you trace things backwards in time towards the Neolithic Evolution, that explains many things. Before the development of agriculture, men and women were valued fairly equally in society. Communities survived on a hunt/gather type of lifestyle, where men and women participated equally and women were considered very important because of the rearing of children. When agriculture developed, there was a labour division...
Very interesting topic! I'd like to see more of this stereotype breakdown in our generation, epecially in the future generations. How are you planning to do the research from this point on? Are you going to find a way to apply this somehow?
I love that you have recognized the constantly shifting face on inquiry! Narrowing your topic is a sign that you have looked at your information and been asking questions that matter to you. What effect to you think nutrition will have on learning? Have you noticed any effects on your own learning and thinking due to daily changes in nutrition?
You summed up the changes in inquiry questions really well, Desi. Almost directly, I can apply what you said about your own project to changes I've made over the last little while surrounding my own project. It's really important I've found to do exactly what you did - take a step back and ask yourself what part of your project you are most interested in. I don't think you need to focus on one or the other (learning ability/cognition). It may be beneficial to start with one, and then move...
"After writing it 3 times" i would love to see all your drafts in line with your finished product to see change and improvement. That would be a very cool visual for me to see and I would love to see what you changed and why? I love this project and im exited to see the end product.
Hallo Desi.I am Joseph Muthui, Principal Irura Primary School.I am happy to report that I received your email on companion planting. I thank you so much for that educative information. I will do it practically in school and at home.I am also happy to note that you started your own kitchen garden. I look forward to working with with you and your colleagues in future projects. Thanks a lot.

Sounds like a great project Chelsea. Since you're doing research on cultural exchanges around the world, will your actual project be only between Kenya and Canada or will you expand on that? Obviously, you can't bring students to Canada from around the world, but it would be interesting if you could incorporate other cultures as well.
GREAT WORK you got here Chelsea,its actually very interesting to learn about other cultures it actually builds some ones personality a lot and i say this with experience,when you guys came to kenya and we had some together i learnt a lot of stuff and broadened my knowledge and gave me a new perceptive about you guys so incorporating this in other people would be awesome,i bet it will of so much benefit to lots of people!
Oh my goodness. This was the most informative thing I've read all week. This is actually really cool because in my Planning 10 class, I started a project on nutrition and how it affects people on a daily basis or in the long run (like how sugar leads to diabetes or chips leading to obesity). I just started it recently so I haven't done much research but I recall some foods lead to alzheimer's. Cool topic! Be sure to share what you learn!!
When you look at dopamine related "problems" in the brain, what specifically are you referring to? Is it something like ADHD, anxiety, or depression or is it something else? To what extent does the person's genetics play into the conditions that you are writing about? I feel like we all need to be careful and not say that candy causes diabetes or chips cause obesity. Most health issues are complex and have my contributing factors including diet, exercise and genetics. We can not pin the...
In my own opinion it definitely affect someones learning because if one takes meal that is not nutritious it ends up affecting someones thinking capacity and one may end up being dormant and also have low energy in the body.
Several studies show that nutrition status can directly affect mental capacity among school-aged children.for example,iron deficiency,even early stages can decrease dopamine transmission, thus negatively impacting cognition.in addition amino acid and carbohydrate supplementation can improve perception , intuition and reasoning .there are also a number of studies showing that improvement in nutrition intake can influence and cognitive ability and intelligence level of school aged-children.
Good nutrition helps students show up at school prepared to learn.because improvement in nutrition make students healthier,students are likely to have fewer absences and attend class more frequently.studies shows that malnutrition lead to behavior problem and that sugar has negative impact on child behavior.however,these effects can be counteracted when children consume a balanced diet that include protein, fat, complex carbohydrate and fiber.thus students will have more time in class,and...
It's really a good research done by you,I love your project plan,the fact that your going to move to videos and tv is actually nice idea,am actually yearning to know your next results after moving to them,this has made me to be following up all your updates,all the best,am more than willing to render my help.
Hey Hezekiah, it is certainly amazing to hear stories of people who rise up in spite of the horrendous and tumultuous circumstances they are born into, such as the very dark slave trade era. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said that learning to read and write was the key for enslaved people to find a link to the outside world and to breaking the poverty cycle that was heightened by slavery. This is also true for any time somebody is born into a poor and, typically, uneducated...
Hey Hazekia, Many of these points you mentioned were very thought-provoking, and it's intriguing to think after all this time countries still struggle with this problem. Despite what slaves have able to do to under the circumstances, its a puzzling trap that countries have been under for centuries. Where does the money that the country makes go? How does this cycle work? It might be interesting for you to research this! http://www.povertyeducation.org/poverty-traps.html
I really like your topic about learning language. I think we can also learn the language on the app. there are many apps about learning language such as Duolingo. https://techcrunch.com/2016/10...lingo-chatbot-video/ I hope this link can help your project.
Hey Haleigh, I really like your topic! I think with trying to learn a new language through media is fun because you are not only learning the language but you are also learning the culture. Some ways to really help immerse oneself into a new language would be, from my experience, listening to their music, watching TV and movies, listening to the radio and there are also a lot of learning websites online such as Rosetta Stone. Here is a link I hope will help:...
Hi Haleigh, I think your topic is super interesting and I can't wait to hear more from you! I'm bilingual (French and English) but I've always wanted to learn Spanish. I've tried apps like Duolingo and Memrise, but it usually doesn't stick. However, in listening to Spanish music and watching a few shows that include Spanish, I've learned so much more! Good luck with your research!!
Hi Juliana! This sounds like a very interesting research topic and I can't wait to see what you come up with! I found this TED Talk you might find useful, it's about building a school in "the cloud," so maybe that will help with the technological aspect of your project: https://www.ted.com/talks/suga...m_campaign=tedspread Can't wait to see your work!
well Juliana,i think we can use technology as its becoming more predominant .I think technology can have a positive impact in the education process.From this ,the teachers as well as students can significantly benefit from it.As embracing and integrating technology in the school will be setting a successful life outside school.
that's really true Paige.To add on that if you have to go off grid in order to be independent you also have to be highly skilled.This is because you depend on yourself for everything in your house including all the appliances that need high technology.you also need more knowledge on how to deal with all the appliances you have in your home. The following link might be of help: http://visualeconomics.creditl...living-off-the-grid/
Hi Juliana, I think this is a great idea because, as you mentioned, it would give students the opportunity to express themselves in ways they would never be able to do in person due to anxiety, self-consciousness, etc. Regarding the stress level for students due to homework or not being able to understand something and your next round of research of how students learn the best, I think it would be a good idea to have a homework club after/ before school and in some blocks during the day. I...
Hey Juliana! That is very interesting! I can definitely say that school is stressful a lot of the time. What I honestly stress about the most is when we have big project or a presentation to do. During presentations or before , I have always felt myself shaking. Another big thing is that when I am stressed I mentally expect the worse to happen while I am presenting, so I often lose concentration and find myself messing up my words. For ways that teachers teach, I had a teacher last year who...
Hi Juliana, After reading your post, I realised how important it is to be able to report bullying through websites. A website I found that might serve the purpose you stated in your post is: http://www.psst-bc.ca/report-it For your next week's research, you might want to compare the teaching methods from different countries to see what works best for students. Good luck on your next post!
