Detecting Breast Cancer
This lesson introduces students to their task of developing a painless means of identifying cancerous tumors. Solving the challenge will depend on an understanding of the properties of stress and strain. After being introduced to the challenge question, students will generate ideas and consider the knowledge required to solve the challenge question. After which, students will read an expert’s opinion on ultrasound imaging and the potentials for detecting cancerous tumors. This interview will h
Determining the impact of cad drafting tools on the building delivery process
Computer aided design is intended to change the way design and construction are carried out. at a minimum, this implies savings realized in terms of time spent and improvement of the quality of designs produced. to test this idea, we hypothesized that computer aided drafting and design operations may be instrumental in reducing the number of change orders issued and help control cost overruns by improving the accuracy of constr

Moving learning games forward
The notion of using video games for learning causes some to cringe, others to leap for joy, and many to ask questions about this learning medium. These questions often come from people and organizations that are considering delving into the world of learning games but dont know if this is advisable or dont know where to start. The goal of this paper is to answer those questions about learning games and to help plot a path for people and organizations interested in developing or fostering the
Activity theory and learning from digital games: developing an analytical methodology
This text outlines the development of a methodology that could credibly answer Squire challenge to identify what, if anything, people are learning by playing games.
A Participatory Design Approach for the Support of Collaborative Learning and Knowledge Building in
Engagement in collaborative learning and knowledge building activities is still a big challenge for many workplace-learning designers. Especially in highly competitive environments people might be reluctant to give away too much of their tacit knowledge. A feeling of ownership and an involvement of the individual in the planning of the learning activities can be important motivational factors. In an international research project called IntelLEO - Intelligent Learning Extended Organization we in
Deposition of Gold Onto a Glass Substrate by Evaporation Through a Polycarbonate
The deposition of 10 micrometer gold islands on a glass surface by evaporation through a polycarbonate membrane is described.
Guess my X and other techno-pedagogical patterns;
Toward a language of patterns for teaching and lea
Most people see learning mathematics as a demanding, even threatening, endeavour. Consequently, creating technology-enhanced environments and activities for learning mathematics is a challenging domain. It requires a synergism of several dimensions of design knowledge: usability, software design, pedagogical design and subject matter. This paper presents a set of patterns derived from a study on designing collaborative learning activities in mathematics for children aged 10-14, and a set of tool
Unwanted Sex Versus Rape: How the Language Used to Describe Sexual Assault Impacts Perceptions of Pe
A review of recent psychology and medical literature reveals that the term ‘unwanted sex’ has become commonly used in journals. Despite this, no universally held definition for the term could be found. Uses ranged from consensual, yet undesirable sexual intercourse, to rape. It was hypothesized that the term ‘unwanted sex’ may have different connotations than the word rape and impact perceptions of what occurred. It was also hypothesized that using the term ‘unwanted sex’ instead of
Mother and Teacher Interaction in Preschools during Parent-Teacher Conferences
The education of children has been a long-standing issue for stakeholders over numerous years. Various literatures recommend that formal learning should begin during the preschool years of a child’s life, and must include home-school partnerships. Empirical data has shown that parents and teachers who work together can positively impact a child’s success in school. This study sought to gain insight into the phenomenon of parent-teacher interactions in preschools, via the lens of symbolic int
