There have also been some potentially harmful scientific developments such as chemical weapons and bombs.  It is imperative that students see the potentialities of science, whether harmful or beneficial, in order to judge how best to use science in their own lives and in the best interests of society.   It is for this reason that a newsgroup to communicate ideas and  experiences of educators from around the globe be proposed.  This group  would be a source of insight for those who want to add some zest to their  lectures.  Currently, there exists a group to discuss the science of  education (sci.edu) but not the education of science.  CHARTER:  The proposed group will provide a forum for the discussion of issues  related to the teaching of science and related topics.  These include,  but are not limited to:  * innovative demonstrations * problem based learning * computer use in science education * current problems in science education  ----------------------------------------------------------------------  Please send comments and criticism to [email protected], and  post information for discussion to the news groups (news.groups)  **********************************************************************  NOTE  This RFD is being issued in concordance with the guidelines set in the  "How to create a new usenet newsgroup" FAQ regularly posted to  news.announce.newgroups.  Please refer to this article if you have any  questions about the newsgroup creation.  This RFD has been cross-posted to misc.education, sci.edu and  news.groups.  Unless the discussion indicates a need to resubmit a new RFD, the CFV will be posted approximately three to four weeks after the posting of this RFD.

There have also been some potentially harmful scientific developments such as chemical weapons and bombs.  It is imperative that students see the potentialities of science, whether harmful or beneficial, in order to judge how best to use science in their own lives and in the best interests of society.  It is for this reason that a newsgroup to communicate ideas and experiences of educators from around the globe was created.  This group has been a source of insight for those who want to add some zest to their lectures.  However, of late there has been a large number of 'spams' to the newsgroup resulting in a number of complaints.  As well, since this group is bi-directionally linked to a LISTSERV mailing list, this will help eliminate the many misaddressed postings for subscription/signoff. It was suggested on the group that it be moderated instead.  Thus this RFD is being proposed.  CHARTER: misc.education.science  The proposed group will continue to provide a forum for the discussion of issues related to the teaching of science and related topics.  These include, but are not limited to:  * innovative demonstrations * problem based learning * computer use in science education * current problems in science education  Sponsorship:  This news group is proposed and will be supported by Student Awareness in Science (SAIS) in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.  SAIS is a non-profit organisation promoting an interest in and an awareness of science.  We will collate interesting threads, FAQ's, and other resources of interest and maintain them under our listserv <[email protected]>. Gopher, Mosaic, and anonymous FTP archives of the discussions will be made available as resources permit.  ----------------------------------------------------------------------  Please send comments and criticism to [email protected], and post information for discussion to the news groups (news.groups)  PROCEDURE:  This RFD is being issued in concordance with the guidelines set in the "How to create a new usenet newsgroup" FAQ regularly posted to news.announce.newgroups.  Please refer to this article if you have any questions about the newsgroup creation.  This RFD has been cross-posted to misc.education, misc.education.science and news.groups.  Unless the discussion indicates a need to resubmit a new RFD, the CFV will be posted approximately 14 days after the posting of this RFD.  This should be around the 25 August, 1995. -- Keith W.
