Is it time to throw away your red grading pen, and to start providing feedback to your students via individual video clips? Two Australian researchers think so. But the question still remains… will students do anything with your feedback?

Video is an excellent tool for conveying emotion and generating excitement. It’s got beautiful moving images, ambient sound, and music (if you dare). It’s got human connection if you talk with people on camera or see them active on screen. It’s the most visceral way to capture an audience and tell a story. It’s not the best at communicating the details of a story however. Text, well written, still does a good job at that. But if your audience is prepped and excited about a topic or in my current case, a research expedition (because they watched an interesting or compelling video), they may be more inclined to sit down and read more about it.

How do we “get the word out” about a new paper we have published, whether the focus is scientific or pedagogical? We list the citation on our CV’s and perhaps on our faculty page of a department website. We might send copies to collaborators and colleagues at other institutions. And some of us will use social media to share the news of having a new manuscript released. Social science researchers …

The surface waters of a major portion of the Arctic Ocean are becoming saturated with carbon dioxide sooner than many scientists expected, all but halting the watery region’s ability to sop up more of the greenhouse gas from Earth’s atmosphere, new research finds.

The famous “kite with key” experiment Ben Franklin conducted in 1752 is more than just a legend for lightning researchers around the world—it’s a procedure. Sure, the kite has been replaced by a rocket, and the string-with-key contraption by a spool of wire, but the intent is still the same—to better understand nature’s flashes of electricity. Recently, an unusual rocket-triggered lightning strike was caught on video by lightning researchers in Florida, and its curious course from cloud to ground is described in a new scientific paper.

Meteorologists have documented upward lightning, which travels upward from the ground to the clouds, since 1939, but they remain puzzled about how it happens. Now, one research team’s analysis of high-speed video taken in Rapid City, South Dakota, captures a possible clue: a downward flash that preceded most upward lightning filmed by the observers.

A couple of interesting landslide stories this week (updated with an extra video below): 1. The Route 14 landslide near Cedar Falls, Utah Thanks to Alexandre Mathieu for the heads up on this one. Back in October 2011, a huge landslide blocked State Route 14 near to Cedar Falls. Since then a huge project has been underway to reinstate the road. This was completed this week, when the road reopened. …
