    Se refiere a la Hoja Web  de la Ciencia (en idioma inglés) y se trata la calidad de la enseñnza de la lectura en los niños. El PDF comienza así :

    De acuerdo con investigaciones anteriores, los niños que no leen con soltura es más probable que no regresen  a la escuela, abandonen los estudios, e incluso pueden cometer delitos.Pero ha habido algunas dudas acerca de si un buen maestro produce cualquier diferencia de conocimiento de la lectura de un niño, o si es más bien si el rendimiento en lectura viene influenciada por la genética del niño, la vida familiar, y el ambiente escolar más. 


    En un artículo en Science de esta semana, Jeanette Taylor y sus colegas confirmaron que los genes hacen de hecho una diferencia en la fluidez de los niños en la lectura oral, pero que la calidad del profesorado también  hace su parte. En particular, el equipo informa de que "cuando los niños reciben una enseñanza más eficaz, entonces tenderán a desarrollarse con una trayectoria óptima." Además, "una mala enseñanza menoscaba la capacidad de los niños para alcanzar su potencial." Hablé con Taylor desde su oficina en la Universidad Estatal de Florida y este es el resultado de esa entrevista.

    TWOWS: Postgraduate Fellowships

    TWOWS Postgraduate Fellowships

    Postgraduate Training Fellowships for Women Scientists from Sub-Saharan Africa and Least Developed Countries (LDC) at Centres of Excellence in the South. The Fellowship is offered to women scientists to pursue postgraduate research in a field of the natural sciences. Deadline for applications: 31 July of each year.

    Purpose

    The Third World Organization for Women in Science (TWOWS) with funds generously provided by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), has instituted a fellowship programme for female students from Sub-Saharan Africa and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), who wish to pursue postgraduate training leading to a Ph.D., at centres of excellence in the South (developing countries), outside their own country.

    The general purpose of the scheme is to contribute to the emergence of a new generation of women leaders in science and technology, and to promote their effective participation in the scientific and technological development of their countries.
    The specific aims of the scheme are:

    To improve access to educational and training opportunities in science and technology for young and talented women graduates from Sub-Saharan Africa and LDCs.

    To increase the scientific productivity and creativity of women scientists in Sub-Saharan Africa and LDCs.

    To empower a new generation of talented women to assume a leadership role in science and technology and their application to sustainable development.
    Eligibility

    The fellowships are open to qualified young women science graduates (generally below 40 years of age) from countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and/or LDCs.

    The minimum qualification of applicants is an M.Sc. degree (or equivalent), or an outstanding B.Sc. honours degree, in the natural sciences.

    Important: Following recent discussions with donors, earlier restrictions that limited eligible research projects to those in the basic sciences have been dropped. Therefore, applications can now be accepted from female scientists in all branches of the natural sciences.

    Applicants already on site in the host country will not be considered eligible.

    The host institute where the applicant wishes to pursue her doctorate degree must be in a developing country other than her own.

    The applicant must be willing to return to her own country after completion of the fellowship.

    List of Least Developed Countries (LDC)

    Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros Islands, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Kiribati, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, Rwanda, Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, Timor-Leste, Togo, Tuvalu, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania, Vanuatu, Yemen and Zambia.

    Note: Sub-Saharan African countries that are not in the list are eligible under the programme.

  • UNESCO-L'OREAL Fellowships

    Within the framework of the UNESCO Co-Sponsored Fellowships Scheme, a joint programme has been launched with the L’ORÉAL Corporate Foundation with a view to promoting the contribution of young women - from all over the world – in research developments in the field of life sciences.

    The UNESCO-L’ORÉAL fellowships scheme focuses on UNESCO’s premise that people are the world’s greatest resource and that innovation and excellence, especially among the young women community, deserve to be supported and encouraged through the concerted efforts of the international community. The award of the fellowships constitutes a key strategy through which impetus is being given to the enhancement of the role of women in devising scientific solutions to problems confronting humankind in the twenty-first century.

    TARGET GROUP

    The programme is designed to identify and reward fifteen deserving, committed and talented young women scientists, from all over the world, active in the field of life sciences. With a view to ensuring that a balanced geographical representation is made, a maximum of three young women, from each of the five geo-cultural regions of the world, will be awarded fellowships.

    Candidates must already be engaged in pursuing research at the doctoral or post-doctoral level in one or allied fields of life sciences including biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, agriculture, medicine, pharmacy and physiology. Projects involving animal models (i.e. experimentation using vertebrate laboratory animals) are rejected, and proposals in the area of cosmetics research are NOT encouraged; preference is given to non cosmetic researches.
    Special attention will be given to candidatures from the Least Developed Countries(LDCs).

    ELIGIBILITY

    Applicants (maximum four from each applying National Commission) must meet the following general criteria:

    The National Commission must endorse all applications. UNESCO cannot entertain applications from individuals.

    Candidates must be no more than 35 years old. Thus, applicants born before 1 January 1976 will not be considered under this programme.

    Preference will be given to candidates already possessing at the time of application a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in the field of the life sciences. However, candidatures from students pursuing studies/research leading to a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) will also be entertained.
    Only candidates with the necessary qualifications, who demonstrate outstanding intellectual promise and personal qualities, will be considered under this programme.

    Candidates must be proficient in reading and writing the language of instruction in the proposed country of study.

    Applicants must be in good health, both physically and mentally.

    Candidates may not be in receipt of another fellowship/grant for the project or for the period covered by the fellowship application. If the candidate receives another award, scholarship or fellowship for the proposed research, she should inform UNESCO immediately and her application will be reviewed and may be withdrawn.
    CONDITIONS FOR APPLICATION:

    Field of study: Life Sciences

    Closing date for receipt of applications: 30 June 2010
    Duration of proposed study/research: 12 months with possibility of extension for additional 12 months

    Duration of stay in the host country/laboratory: At least half of the period of the fellowship must be undertaken abroad, for a minimum duration of 6 months and a maximum duration of 12 months. If an extension is granted then duration abroad is minimum 12 months and maximum 22 months. In the latter case, the applicant is requested to complete the studies in her own country for a minimum of two months.

    Possible date of commencing the project: Any time between 1 March 2011 &1 March 2012
    Requirements for application for an extension of the fellowship: The following documents should be submitted 3 months before the ending date of the fellowship:

    i. Three letters of recommendation issued by (a) the host institution, (b) the research supervisors at the host institution, and (c) the academic institution/laboratory in the fellow’s home country;

    ii. A research report on progress to date on the project and a proposal justifying the need for an extension with details of the work to be done

    iii. A budget estimate specifying how the second grant will be utilised. Applications for extension may only be made for the project for which the original fellowship was granted

    Upon termination of the fellowship, the beneficiary must agree to return to her country so that the knowledge acquired may be put to good use in local research and training programmes.

    APPLICATION PROCEDURES:

    All applications must be submitted with the required documentation on the prescribed and enclosed application forms. Each Member State may nominate up to a maximum of four candidatures. It is the National Commission’s responsibility to select candidates that it wishes to submit to UNESCO.

    The National Commission is also invited to seek the cooperation of the local scientific community to ensure high standard candidatures that will then have more chances of being selected. The application(s) should reach the Fellowships Programme Section (ERC/RPO/FEL), UNESCO (7, Place de Fontenoy 75352 Paris 07P) before 30 June 2010. An electronic copy of this letter and the application form is available in the UNESCO Fellowships' website. Advance copy may be sent by fax: +331.45.68.55.02/03 or by e-mail: a.zaid@unesco.org and c.dixon-cifuentes@unesco.org (MSWord or PDF format document exclusively).

    The application must have the following attachments:

    a) The UNESCO Fellowship application form duly completed, in English or in French, in duplicate. Two recent photographs should be included with the form.

    b) An e-mail address regularly used by the candidate.

    c) Certified copies of degree or diplomas (including transcript of grades) in duplicate. Proof either of having obtained a Ph.D. degree or of being in the process of studying for a Ph.D. degree must be included.

    d) A list of publications, if any.

    e) A letter of recommendation from someone familiar with the candidate’s work.

    f) A host institute’s letter of acceptance (i.e. the institute that has accepted the candidate for work should she be selected for a fellowship). This letter of acceptance must indicate the name of the academic supervisor, the date and duration, and the host institute’s willingness to provide the relevant training facilities required by the candidate in the chosen field of specialization.

    g) The certificate of language proficiency (on UNESCO form) duly completed in duplicate for the language of the country of study (should this be different from the candidate’s mother tongue) and signed by the competent authority.

    h) A detailed description, one to two page(s) (maximum), in either English or French, of the research work for which the candidature is being put forward.
    The research proposal should cover the following points:

    Why? The concrete nature of the proposed project’s contribution to the life sciences; its innovative, original aspects; and the scope and purpose of the research project. The candidate should demonstrate that the reasons of the theoretical and practical knowledge or training acquired at the host laboratory would be beneficial to her on-going research project.

    What? The expected results or impact of the research project being undertaken. •

    How? Describe the proposed arrangements for conducting the research.

    Where? The proposed country, where research will be undertaken and the name and address of the host institute/laboratory.

    When? The time-framework explicitly stating the proposed starting date and the suggested duration of research which should be of twelve months maximum. Because the possibility for extension exists, it would be useful also to give an indication of further development of the project beyond the 1-year time frame.

    How much? A detailed budget estimate indicating the resources required for the candidate to undertake the proposed research. The amount should not exceed USD20,000. All figures must be shown in US dollars and must be stated on a separate page. The total amount indicated should cover, exclusively, the international or domestic travel costs for the proposed itinerary and tuition fees, if any, including personal subsistence abroad, etc.

    Applicants should be realistic in compiling their estimated budgets, and consider that an average of USD1,500 per month for accommodation and meals (including local transportation and incidentals) should not be exceeded.

    Applications where funds requested are judged to be excessive in relation to the objectives and importance of the project are likely to be considered for a smaller grant.
    The following costs are not eligible:

    Computer or equipment purchases; publication costs; attendance at conferences, unless a case can be made that such attendance is an integral part of the research and would make a direct and significant contribution to the outcome of the development of life sciences.

    UNESCO and the L’ORÉAL Corporate Foundation allocate the greatest importance to originality and quality. Consideration will be given only to well-structured projects that demonstrate innovation, creativity and relevance, and which are likely to contribute to enhance knowledge in life sciences.

    Files which are incomplete or which are received after the deadline for application, as well as candidatures that do not meet the requirements mentioned above, will not be taken into consideration. 4.

    EL FUTURO SEGUN LA REVISTA FORBES

    13 de abril de 2010, 05:39 PM
    Por Patricia Reaney

    NUEVA YORK (Reuters) - El trayecto al trabajo será corto y barato dentro de 10 años, las computadoras serán omnipresentes pero pasarán desapercibidos y habrá refrigeradores inteligentes que ayudarán a los consumidores a comer más sano.

    Sin embargo, el futuro previsto por Forbes.com podría significar también un desempleo más alto y más pérdidas de puestos por la externalización y la automatización tecnológica y el fin de los colegios tal y como los conocemos.

    "El profesor único será sustituido por un equipo de preparadores de campos diferentes. Las clases organizadas serán sustituidas por complicados desafíos del mundo real", según la web.

    Forbes.com predice que los estadounidenses serán más ingeniosos y elásticos con respecto al transporte y el 75 por ciento del mundo vivirá en las ciudades.

    En lugar de conducir vehículos de gran tamaño, los coches eléctricos serán la norma para los trayectos cortos y los vehículos diesel se preferirán para los viajes largos.

    "Iremos más a trabajar caminando y usaremos la bicicleta e iremos y volveremos al colegio andando, algunas veces cuesta arriba, en medio de la nieve, como hacían nuestros padres", dijo Nicole Perlroth, editora en Forbes.

    "Mucho de esto es una vuelta a cómo eran las cosas hace 50 años", añadió en una entrevista.

    UNA FORMA DE VIDA MAS CONSCIENTE DE LOS COSTOS

    El personal de Forbes, que hizo una previsión similar hace una década con resultados mixtos, contactó a profesionales en previsiones para obtener su opinión sobre cómo será el 2020.

    "Contactamos a algunos de esos futuristas profesionales y diseñadores con un perfil alto que han investigado en estas áreas distintas", explicó Perlroth.

    Los expertos prevén que en muchos aspectos, en la próxima década la gente volverá a una forma de vida más realista y consciente de los costos.

    La tecnología y las computadoras serán una parte importante de la vida diaria, pero desaparecerán en "nuestra conciencia colectiva", según Forbes.

    La opción de una alimentación sana será posible con la ayuda de dispositivos inteligentes y según un color universal y un sistema de clasificación numérica sobre el valor nutricional.

    "Todos nosotros coincidimos en la necesidad de algún sistema universal para contabilizar nuestra nutrición. Y hay necesidad de un tipo de metodología clara e incentivos para comer mejor porque no es sostenible lo que hacemos ahora", dijo Perlroth.

    Las casas grandes podrían estar en declive también ya que los compradores dejarán de evaluar el tamaño, aspecto y costo por metro cuadrado y en su lugar considerarán los costos mensuales de vivir allí, incluida la calefacción, el aire acondicionado, el mantenimiento y el transporte.

    "Vamos a cuidar mejor de nosotros mismos y del planeta pese a nuestros esfuerzos por no hacerlo", dijo Perlroth.

    Forbes.com sugiere que la población se está dando cuenta del verdadero costo sobre la población y sobre el planeta de vivir en casas grandes, conducir grandes coches y comer lo que se quiera.

    "Ahora que ha entrado en nuestra conciencia colectiva, vamos a comenzar a contabilizar estos costos en nuestra toma de decisiones futura", añadió.

    Tanto si las predicciones se cumplen o no en la próxima década Perlroth cree que esta forma de pensar será un tema importante en el 2020.
